10 stars! It is my pleasure to recommend Dr. Kevin Trotter. He is gifted, both as a professional in dental treatment and in his ability to discern the individual cosmetic needs for his patients. Dr. Trotter is not only an expert in his field as a dentist, he also is an artist with regard to the complicated and precise assessment of cosmetic dentistry. It is rare today to find a professional who possesses not only the level of skill and competence, but the ability to demonstrate the utmost sensitivity and care for his patients.

About Invisalign

Invisalign® is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligner therapy instead of traditional metal brackets and wires. Many adolescents and adults are candidates for Invisalign aligners. Our team at Dentistry at the Heights can help you achieve a more beautiful smile with Invisalign clear aligners.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign was a great step forward in the field of orthodontics; the development of the clear aligner trays offered a far more discreet and comfortable teeth straightening option than traditional metal braces. Using advanced computer technology, our dentists can design customized orthodontic aligners. These BPA-free plastic trays fit comfortably over the teeth, gradually bringing them into alignment.

Benefits of Invisalign

Discreet

Compared to other orthodontic options like braces, Invisalign straightens the teeth discreetly. Because the aligners are clear, they are much more difficult for people to see, especially at a distance. 

Convenient

The aligners are easy to clean, and this treatment requires fewer visits to the dentist than traditional braces.

Nonrestrictive 

You can remove your trays for two to three hours a day. Therefore, you can enjoy your favorite foods without the worry of causing damage to your appliance.

Comfortable

The trays are BPA-free, comfortable, and will not irritate your lips or gums the way metal brackets and wires can.

Easy-to-Use

With traditional braces, food gets trapped in the hardware and the bacteria can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign makes it easier to keep your teeth clean during the treatment process.

Are You a Candidate for Invisalign?

The aligner trays can address minor to moderate teeth and bite misalignment. Schedule a consultation at our Brooklyn practice if you have:

  • Overbite
  • Open Bite
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Gaps between Teeth

Is Invisalign Right For You? Request a Consultation

We will only recommend Invisalign if it is truly the best dental solution for your needs. While Invisalign is a very popular orthodontic treatment, our office also offers braces for patients who don't qualify for Invisalign or want a more traditional orthodontics plan. Our orthodontists are certified Invisalign providers who have taken advanced training courses to provide you with an excellent orthodontics experience. Request a consultation at our Brooklyn office to see if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you:

The Invisalign Treatment Process


Depending on your orthodontic goals, you will often see final Invisalign results in about a year.

Consultation

During your initial consultation at our Brooklyn Heights office, your dentist will perform a detailed dental exam with x-rays to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. If you have severe misalignment, you may require traditional braces instead of Invisalign. In such cases, we will refer you to a local orthodontist.

Planning

If you wish to proceed with Invisalign, we will develop your full treatment plan and digitally measure your smile for your trays. Using digital imagery, we will also show you pictures of your projected treatment results.

Aligner Fabrication

The digital images and design specifications will be sent to the lab where technicians will create your trays. A series of clear aligner trays will be custom-made to straighten your teeth. The total number of aligners will depend on your unique treatment plan.

Wearing the Aligners

Once your trays have been created, we will fit you with the first in the series. Then, every two weeks, you will switch to the next aligner set. You should wear the aligner trays for at least 22 hours a day, only removing them to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

Follow-Up Appointments

We will monitor your progress during in-office appointments at our Brooklyn, NY, office every six weeks.

Final Results

At the end of orthodontic treatment, you can expect straighter teeth and a more aesthetically pleasing smile. You may also enjoy an overall improved appearance and a boost of confidence.

Care After Invisalign

Wear a Retainer

Once your Invisalign treatment is over, you'll need to continue wearing a retainer at night to maintain your straightened smile. In most cases, patients can wear their last Invisalign aligner as their retainer. 

Consider Teeth Whitening

Many patients find they have mild tooth discoloration after their Invisalign treatment. Our orthodontists offer professional whitening for patients who want a bright, white smile to match their straight, aligned teeth.
