What is Invisalign? Invisalign is an innovative alternative to conventional metal braces that creates a radiant smile with more comfort and convenience. The unique system straightens the teeth with a series of custom-fit aligners that gradually transform the smile in a comfortable and discreet manner. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign trays are non-invasive without irritating metal wires and bands that can cause discomfort and painful sores.

They say ‘you are what you eat’ and in many ways, it’s true. A well-nourished person who eats plenty of fresh fruits, lean meats, and raw or lightly steamed veggies is bound to feel more vibrant and energetic than someone who subsists on fast food and soft drinks.
