What can I expect with Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a wonderful method of straightening your teeth gently and invisibly. Every few weeks you'll receive custom-fitted invisible trays to wear. These gradually straighten your teeth, making them much gentler than traditional braces. Invisalign® is meant to be worn for a majority of your day but can be removed to eat or drink. At your first visit, Dr. Kim can provide a consultation and explain exactly what to expect.
