What would you like to learn about?
Invisalign isn’t just for kids and teens.
Many people don’t receive orthodontic treatment while they’re growing up. Sometimes the money isn’t there, other times they just don’t want to go through the process, and in some cases they just don’t think the alignment of their teeth is a big deal at the time.
That changes once they’re adults. They want – and can afford – a smile that’s healthier, better-looking, and easier to maintain, but they don’t want to go through years of wearing braces.
That’s where Invisalign comes in.
There’s no such thing as too old for Invisalign.
Are grown up smiles different from adolescent ones? They are — but Invisalign still works perfectly on them.
Your treatment might take a little bit longer compared to the same amount of tooth movement in a younger person, but it’ll be just as effective.
The most important thing is the health of your teeth and gums.
As long as your overall oral health is good – and especially your teeth and gums – you can get Invisalign. It works just as well at age 60 as it does at age 16.
What if I have dental implants, crowns, or missing teeth?
You’re good to get Invisalign – no problem. Depending on your needs, Invisalign might even be recommended as a pre-treatment before you get dental implants.
The Invisalign Process
Invisalign uses gentle pressure to shift your teeth or change the way you bite.
As your smile is reshaped, you’ll receive new sets of aligners that continue to move everything into the correct position.
Finally, once your treatment has finished, you’ll wear a nightly retainer to keep your new smile in place.
You won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
If you’re expecting a painful experience, we have good news: Invisalign is very comfortable.
There might be some sensitivity at the beginning (which we can help you manage), but you’ll quickly get used to your aligners, and most of the time you won’t even notice they’re in.

Invisalign vs Braces for Adults
For most adults, Invisalign is a better choice than braces.
Why? Because Invisalign is less disruptive to your everyday life. Aside from taking out and putting in your aligners a few times each day, plus the occasional visit to the dentist, you’ll barely have to change your routine.
Pricing & Payment
While every case is unique, and the final cost depends on how long and complex a treatment is, Invisalign for adults starts at around $4000 for simple <6-8 month cases and costs roughly $8000 on average, including:
- Scan & Exams
- Invisalign Aligners
Yes! Since it improves your oral health, Invisalign is covered by dental benefits or insurance in most cases.
It is, and a lot of people use it. You can get financing on your own through your bank or another lender, or work with our partner Dental Card to get up to $25,000 in coverage.
