How does it work?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of removable, clear aligner trays that are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth. Every two weeks, you will put on a new set of trays that work to shift your teeth gradually with gentle pressure until you reach your achieved position.

Achieve your smile makeover without the inconvenience

You can get a stunning smile quickly and discreetly, without metal braces or having to go to an orthodontist. Your Invisalign treatment will be monitored by Dr. Dennis & his team, a Certified Invisalign Provider here at Abington Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry.

Q&A

How is Invisalign different from metal braces?

Invisalign trays are made from hard, clear, BPA-free plastic. They’re safe to wear and are especially beneficial for adults and teens with metal allergies.

The trays are also more comfortable and easier to care for than traditional metal braces. The invisible aligners are barely noticeable, and you can remove them to brush and floss your teeth.

What’s the treatment process?

Braces take on average around 18-24 months to produce results, while Invisalign can recreate your beautiful smile in as little as 6 months and on average 12-18 months- nearly half the time traditional orthodontic treatments take.

The time it takes to straighten your teeth is different from person to person, but you will start to see results generally within 3 months.

What can I expect at my Invisalign appointment?

At your initial consultation, we explain the Invisalign process and answer all of your questions. Next, we do a dental exam to determine if Invisalign is the best orthodontic option for you. You will also learn the following information at your appointment:

  • Digital 3D imaging
  • Types of problems it will correct
  • Expectations and desired treatment results
  • The time it will take for the treatment to work for you
  • How much Invisalign will cost

If you are a good candidate, a customized treatment plan will be created that shows how your teeth are expected to adjust. Once you have your aligners, you wear them for 20-22 hours each day. You will most likely have a dental checkup every six weeks to evaluate your progress.

What kinds of dental problems can Invisalign fix?

  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

Note: While Invisalign can correct nearly all of the problems that braces can, expected results vary.

If you’re considering braces for yourself or your teenager, call the office or schedule a consultation online to learn if Invisalign is the best option for your dental needs and lifestyle. Abington Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry is located in Clarks Summit, PA, and serves the greater Scranton area.

Stop wasting your insurance money elsewhere. I’ve grown up going from one bad, rude, painful, insensitive, cruel, dentist to another. I’ve spent years trying to achieve one thing. A beautiful smile. I’ve wasted a lifetime of out of pocket money and insurance money (that yes, only let you do procedures ONCE in your life) pain, tears, ridicule, and embarrassment, on all the wrong dentists. Then my husband found Dr. Dennis and recommended I make the switch. After I was yelled at, hurt, treated rudely, and ALOT of my insurance money wasted, I now sit in Dr. Dennis’ chair. Did he tell me everything I’ve had done in my mouth was done wrong, yes. Does it ALL need to be fixed and insurance won’t pay for it again so out of our middle-class pockets it will come, yes. If every dentist had just been as kind and talented as Dr. Dennis. Here’s your sign. Don’t be another story like me. A kind dentist who does things right the first time? In a perfect world we would have all found him at the age of 5 when our fears were high and we are a clean slate but c’est la vie and I’m here to tell you that he does exist. You just hadn’t found him yet. But now you have. My husband and I both would recommend him seven ways from Sunday. And not mention, all of his hygienists are fabulous, kind, very knowledgeable, and explain things so kindly to us in such a nonjudgmental manner. ( It’s a very important and an under-acknowledged virtue.) Lastly, his front desk ladies are just as much the bees knees as well. I love every visit I have there.

Dr Dennis and his staff are the best I had a broken tooth I was just going to have pulled. They got me in within four days from my first call. I was to be a new patient so I was impressed how quick they got me in. Once there I was given two options he could pull the tooth or clean it up and place a crown over the tooth. After getting the estimates I chose to keep the tooth. 2 days later I was in getting the crown. They make their crowns onsite so I got my tooth that day. I received a call the following day to check how the crown felt check on an discomfort I said all good it works I can eat on the side where the crown is. I have more work that is needed which I won't go anywhere else to have it done. But never have a met a dentist that impressed me like this office has. Thank you for everything you all are awesome.

I’ve had so much work done and past work by other dentists fixed by Dr. Dennis. He is completely confident in the answers he presents to me which allows me to trust him completely with my teeth. I love that he tells me like it is and let’s me decide what to do with the information he gives me! He will truly do what is absolutely best for YOU! All the dental hygienists are always wonderfully social and compassionate too! Today, especially, you made my day! Thank you for getting me in! Love and light!!

I give them a five star in overall!! Reception, hygienist, dental assistant and Dr!! I had 2 crown replace! The fact that they custom make the crown same day in office is a home run— no temporary cap!!! I also had a filling that was done about a year ago incorrectly by another Dr in NYC. ———Dr Charles Dennis showed me the before picture and it was scary!! He proceeded to clean it all out and replace the filling and it was impeccable. I truly have to say he is the best Cosmetic Dr & Family Dentistry that I have come across.
