Invisalign®️ in New York, NY
If you are unhappy with the smile you see in the mirror because of crooked or misaligned teeth, you may have considered a dentist near you about the different available alignment systems.

What is Invisalign®️?
At Glen J. Graffeo DDS, we offer this unique tooth alignment system so that you can have the smile of your dreams without worrying about what traditional metal braces are saying about your smile.

These unique aligners are clear, so you don’t have to worry about having any aesthetic changes as your teeth are being straightened. Since they are removable, you can continue to brush, floss, and eat like you usually would.
Your dentist in New York, NY can answer any questions you may have regarding what the treatment is like, what to expect, and any extra steps that you’ll need to follow to maintain your oral health during the treatment duration.
