What is Invisalign?
Invisalign® has become a household name across the country as the invisible alternative to metal braces. Providing people the opportunity to have straight teeth without the stress and annoyance of outdated orthodontic techniques, this option is now available to nearly everyone.
QuickSmiles is disrupting the orthodontic industry with a new Invisalign treatment method for half the price of braces, making them the top provider of Invisalign. By limiting the number of times you visit an orthodontist, QuickSmiles allows people to save time and money throughout the entire process.
Among clear aligners today, Invisalign is the one that started it all. Created in 1997 by Zia Chishti and Kelsey Wirth while they were attending Stanford University, it started a new trend in the orthodontics industry: invisible aligners instead of braces. Under the business name of Align Technology, Invisalign remains the most popular alternative to metal braces.
Are you interested in how Invisalign is made?
As part of our own unique process, a specially trained QuickSmiles orthodontist follows the prescription of their patient to both design and manufacture the clear aligner. Using innovative 3D printing technology, they create a replica of the patient’s teeth with proprietary plastic materials.
The professional Invisalign orthodontists at QuickSmiles follow these exact processes to ensure our clear aligners are optimized for straightening your teeth as quickly and effectively as possible.
Will Invisalign Work for Me?
The orthodontists at QuickSmiles are top Invisalign experts. With over 15 years of specialized experience with Invisalign, we can straighten almost any smile thanks to these expert orthodontists.
More than 95% of the people we see are candidates for Invisalign treatment at QuickSmiles.
Over the years, QuickSmiles orthodontists have transformed thousands of smiles. Our professional orthodontists go through special training to learn the most essential aspects of treating with Invisalign.
Because your smile is precious, we are dedicated to ensuring you receive the best care throughout your journey to straight teeth.
How Invisalign Works
While Invisalign is an alternative orthodontic option to braces, the concept is similar. The main goal is to straighten your teeth over time by creating pressure as prescribed by a trained Invisalign orthodontist.
As you wear the clear aligners designed for your teeth, the trays will be changed out on a weekly or bi-weekly basis depending on your treatment plan. But instead of visiting an orthodontist each and every time for the adjustment, you’ll be able to instantly transition to the next set of your Invisalign at home.
The process followed by QuickSmiles for Invisalign is as simple as 6 steps:
Step 1 :
Book your free Smile Scan at the Invisalign orthodontist near you.
Step 2 :
Complete your Smile Scan, together with x-rays at the QuickSmiles office, see a 3D preview of your new smile, and learn about your payment options including insurance, payment plans, or current Invisalign deals .
Steps 3 :
Once your clear aligners are created (approx 2-3 weeks), return to our office to pick up your first series of clear aligners. Our QuickSmiles orthodontist will confirm they fit properly, while also teaching you the correct ways to use and clean them.
Step 4 :
We will contact you every 10 weeks to conduct a mobile checkup. This allows you to simply send your orthodontist photos from your smartphone, which they will use to evaluate your progress and ensure everything is working as it should.
Step 5 :
As your treatment time frame nears its completion, we’ll schedule an appointment for you to get a new 3D Smile Scan. If your teeth are at the final stage, your orthodontist will create your retainers. If additional time is needed for your treatment, we will order a new set of clear aligners at no charge. These will be covered as many times as it takes for your treatment to be completed.
Step 6 :
Show off your new, confident smile!
Invisalign vs. Braces
People often ask what is better: Invisalign or Braces?
Though research will provide you with a variety of pros and cons for each solution , you’ll quickly find the benefits of Invisalign far outweigh the advantages of braces and other clear aligners.
At QuickSmiles, Invisalign works faster than braces, taking as little as 6 to 12 months from start to finish. The alternative of metal braces can take as long as 18 months to 3+ years. Thanks to the QuickSmiles method for Invisalign, you’ll have far less orthodontist office visits. We’re able to limit your Invisalign checkups to about 3-5 visits, while metal braces taking as many as 15-25 appointments or more.
Additional reasons people choose Invisalign vs. braces include:
More comfortable with no metal wires in your mouth
Removable for convenience
No food restrictions such as popcorn, gum, hard candy, and more
Easier to brush your teeth and keep them clean

Does Invisalign Hurt?
You’ve likely heard braces hurt after the wires are tightened. Does Invisalign hurt in the same way as metal braces?
Most people experience discomfort with any method for correcting teeth. The level of discomfort when using QuickSmiles depends on the pain tolerance of the person, how much the teeth need to move, and the method for moving the teeth.
QuickSmiles Invisalign clear aligners usually cause less pain than metal braces.
The aligners are changed more frequently than getting metal braces adjusted every couple of months. This provides the benefit of less discomfort since the teeth have less distance to move with each change.
Some people experience minor initial soreness for a day or so after changing their QuickSmiles aligner tray. But you also get to enjoy the advantage of having no restrictions on your diet or other eating habits. And in the end, you’ll enjoy the satisfaction that comes with a beautiful smile which took a fraction of the time it would have with metal braces.
