Many teens and adults want a solution for gapped or crooked teeth, but few are eager to receive treatment with traditional orthodontics.
Invisalign® clear aligners provide a discreet way to straighten teeth without any of the bulk or discomfort of metal braces.
Dr. Jeffrey Kearney in Cary, NC, has nearly a decade of experience creating beautiful, straighter smiles with Invisalign.
How Does Treatment With Invisalign Work?
The Invisalign system involves a customized series of thin, transparent aligner trays that gradually shift your teeth into a straighter position. Patients change to a new aligner every one to two weeks.
Don't I Need to See an Orthodontist to Straighten My Teeth?
While Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment, you don't need to visit a specialist to correct your smile with these clear aligners. Orthodontists are specially qualified to treat alignment issues using traditional braces, but Dr. Kearney can provide this subtle corrective alternative for new and existing patients at his Cary, NC, office.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Comfortable and Discreet
Metal braces can feel bulky in the mouth and are noticeable when you smile. Invisalign clear aligners are ultra-smooth and nearly invisible, allowing you to comfortably and confidently share your smile in photos, while out with friends and family, or during important presentations at work.
While braces are firmly affixed to your teeth, Invisalign aligners are easily removable, allowing you to eat and drink on your schedule and without dietary limitations. Using removable aligners also lets you brush and floss normally without any obstruction from metal brackets and wires.
Many patients who choose braces wait one to three years to see full results. Invisalign clear aligners can help you achieve the same quality results as braces in as few as 12 months.
Skip the Orthodontist
Many traditional orthodontic options require you to visit a provider specialized in orthodontics, but choosing to straighten your smile with Invisalign means that you can receive effective treatment from your trusted local dentist.

The Fast Track to a Straighter Smile Introducing Invisalign Express
If you are interested in a quicker, more affordable way to correct very mild spacing or crowding issues along your front teeth, Invisalign Express might be the choice for you. With Invisalign Express, a set of 5–10 aligners can effectively correct your smile in as few as six months—just half the time that treatment with standard Invisalign typically takes.
Patients who have experienced minor shifting after completing other types of corrective treatment from a dentist or orthodontist may also make excellent candidates for Invisalign Express. Proper use of your aligners can undo shifting and get your smile back into top shape.
The Invisalign Process
Caring for Your New Smile
Practice Good Dental Hygiene
A straighter smile can make it much easier to brush and floss effectively, which helps to prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. Be sure to practice good dental hygiene, and schedule regular checkups with Dr. Kearney to both maintain your overall oral health and monitor the position of your teeth.
Wear Your Retainer
As with many orthodontic procedures, it is important that you wear a retainer to bed each night after completing your Invisalign treatment to ensure that your newly aligned teeth don't shift out of position. Our Cary, NC, dental practice can provide a retainer that will help you enjoy your Invisalign results for years to come.
The Cost of Invisalign Treatment
Invisalign treatment costs are comparable to traditional braces, but final prices can vary depending on the specifics of each treatment plan. Many insurance providers help to cover the cost of Invisalign, just as they do for other orthodontic options. Our team in Cary, NC, believes that quality dental care should be affordable for all of our patients. Contact our office to learn more about payment plans that can help you manage out-of-pocket costs.
