$2,799 for a Complete Invisalign Treatment ($6,000 Value)
Invisalign straightens teeth with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions, helps the dentist to prepare a customized set of aligners, which slowly shift smiles into proper alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, or flossing. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
All About Smiles
In 1996, Drs. Grace Liu and Lewis Yu graduated from dental school and embarked on furthering their education: she completed postgraduate work at Columbia University and he trained in oral surgery at the University of Pennsylvania's hospital. After amassing a wealth of knowledge and experience, the pair married and started All About Smiles.
Their newly renovated ultra-modern clinic boasts cutting-edge technology such as intra-oral cameras, a VELScope for oral-cancer screenings, and sleep apnea screening equipment. Their holistic approach means that they seek to treat the mouth in connection with the rest of the body. With assistance from their friendly and highly-trained staff, the dental duo help clients care for their smiles with a wide range of treatments, ranging from basic cleanings and orthodontic care to oral surgeries and installations of crowns, veneers, bridges, and neuromuscular dentistry. Seeking to protect clients from toxins and vapors, they are completely metal free, use detox before and after sessions and provide patients with oxygen to prevent inhaling mercury vapors, and have taken special precautions and classes to prevent the ingestion of amalgam.
