Invisalign Clear Braces Dentist in Puyallup
Preferred Invisalign Provider in Puyallup | Free Consultation
Achieve your best smile with Invisalign clear braces.
If your dentist has recommended orthodontic care, but you want to avoid the discomfort of conventional metal braces, Invisalign can present a clear solution to common malocclusions that may affect your smile. Invisalign is a unique system of straightening teeth that utilizes clear plastic aligners rather than metal brackets and wires.
Because Invisalign is almost completely invisible when worn, it is often the preferred treatment for adult braces and teens who would benefit from conventional braces. BellaSmiles Dentistry is a leading cosmetic dentistry provider of Invisalign in the Tacoma area, offering exceptional care in our comfortable, spa-like Puyallup practice. Read on to discover more about what our dentists can do for your smile with Invisalign treatment.
Benefits of Invisalign
The convenience of Invisalign is unbeatable compared to other types of orthodontic care. What’s more is that the price of Invisalign treatment is often in the same range as that of conventional braces. Aside from offering a clear alternative to braces, there are a lot of great advantages to choosing Invisalign over traditional braces.
- Improved aesthetics – Teens often dread braces for fear of school pictures with a mouth full of metal, and adults maintaining a professional reputation may want to seek a more aesthetically pleasing solution for straightening their smiles. When you are wearing Invisalign, the aligners are virtually unnoticeable. Might as well call them invisible braces. Plus, you can see more gradual improvements in your smile as treatment goes on.
- Convenient at-home care – Since you can take Invisalign aligners out to eat and drink, you will not have any restrictions on what you can eat during treatment. You can also brush and floss as usual, since there are no wires to get in your way.
- Fewer dental checkups – The advanced technology of planning care with Invisalign ensures accurately designed aligners that won’t need adjustments at the dentist’s office. This can free up more time in your busy schedule and reduce the cost of copays during your care.
- Reduced irritation – Patients tend to report greater comfort during treatment with Invisalign since there is no soft tissue irritation from sharp wires and brackets.
Conditions Treated with Invisalign
Almost any case treatable with traditional or clear metal braces will respond effectively to treatment with Invisalign. Common reasons for treatment include crowding, spacing issues, or malocclusions such as an overbite.
Will My Insurance Cover Invisalign Treatment?
Most dental insurances cover Invisalign treatment just like any other orthodontic treatments such as traditional metal braces. At BellaSmiles Dentistry we accept a wide range of dental insurances plus we offer discount dental memberships plans and offer financing via CareCredit to ensure Invisalign is affordable for you.
How Invisalign Works
With Invisalign, the dentist will use digital imaging technology to create a map of your teeth and the ideal topography of your smile. This information is used to craft a series of custom plastic aligners that gradually move the teeth into proper position. You will wear the aligners for about 22 hours each day, taking them out to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. The treatment timeline with Invisalign is comparable to that of conventional braces.

Does Invisalign Have Any Lifestyle Restrictions?
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign is easy. In fact, most of our patients don’t experience any difference in their overall lifestyle. You can take out your aligners whenever you eat or drink which is great as it does not restrict your diet in any way. You can still enjoy all your favorite foods even corn on the cob or taffy-style candies. Since the Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, chances are no one will even notice you are wearing them. This is a huge advantage over traditional metal braces which were obvious even from far away. Have a hot date or special event? You can remove the Invisalign aligners to enjoy a special night out. And, unlike traditional orthodontic treatments which required frequent visits to the dentist, Invisalign works with your schedule and only requires a check-in every 6 weeks.
