There is an estimated four million people living in the U.S. with braces, with a quarter of them being adults. But metal braces are not for everyone. If you are suffering from the effects of crooked teeth, you may be one of the millions that experience lower self-confidence that affects your social life and happiness. Traditional braces are apparent, expensive and painful and can take up to three years to completely straighten teeth. There are better options available to give you the smile you have always dreamed of.

With advancements in modern dental technology, there are now faster, more affordable orthodontic solutions available to get the straighter smile you deserve. Dr. Richard D. Weigand is a fellow of the American Dental Association and an LVI Global graduate with over 30 years of hands-on experience in dentistry. Using the latest technology in orthodontics, our dentist can help you get a straighter smile, and renewed confidence, with Invisalign® and Six Month Braces®.

Invisalign®

Invisalign is a popular treatment method because of the discreet and comfortable nature of the procedure, they typically do not irritate the gums, cheeks or lips like traditional orthodontics can.The clear aligners are customized to you. Dr. Weigand will deliver multiple clear plastic aligners to wear over the course of your treatment time, and are to be replaced every two weeks. These aligners comfortably rest on your teeth and gently make minor adjustments, until they reach the desired position. Invisalign aligners are worn for 20-22 hours each day and are removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. For teens and busy adults, comfortable, discreet Invisalign clear aligners can be an ideal alternative to traditional braces.
