Invisible braces are an effective and affordable way to straighten your teeth. There is no metal and no wires, so they are virtually undetectable. Dr. Hechtman at Walled Lake Dentist has been straightening patients’ teeth with invisible braces for years. His level of customization ensures the very best results in the shortest amount of time.

Invisible braces are a series of custom made clear aligners that apply pressure to the teeth you wish to move.

After your dentist evaluates your teeth, a three-dimensional impression of your teeth is taken. Using computerized technology, a manufacturer-specific laboratory will make your customized aligners.

Dr. Hechtman will evaluate the suitability of the fit to ensure optimized results. He will then monitor your progress and create new sets of aligners as you progress during treatment. Treatment time varies for each patient and can range from 6 to 18 months!

The aligners are typically worn for at least 22 hours a day. They can easily be removed for eating and brushing teeth. They are smooth and comfortable as well as aesthetically pleasing. The result however, depends on the patient. If they are not worn as directed, they simply wont work.

Like traditional braces, invisible braces are designed to straighten teeth and can be used to treat the following conditions: Crowded teeth, crooked teeth, widely spaced teeth and overbites. They may not be suitable for certain misalignment cases or complex bite problems.
