How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses 3-D computer technology through which uneven teeth are virtually moved and the whole treatment monitored from beginning to end.

So your teeth gradually move to its final position. Treatment time is comparable to that of traditional brackets. It varies depending on the case, but in most cases the desired result is achieved in less than a year.
