Invisalign FAQ

What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that aligns teeth into the correct position without the use of traditional metal brackets and wires. Invisalign® incorporates a series of personalized clear aligners that cover your teeth and gently pull them into the correct position over a period of time. With Invisalign®, your teeth can be beautiful, comfortable, and precisely aligned in half the amount of time as traditional braces.

If you have crooked teeth and prefer discreet braces as a corrective option, your Garland, TX, Dentist, Dr. Dooley, will need to consult with you to provide the best solution.
