Invisalign vs. Braces
See why patients prefer clear aligners!
Invisalign aligners are clear, thin, and custom-made to fit seamlessly on your teeth.
Because you change your aligners at home, Invisalign requires far fewer visits to the office than traditional braces.
Take your aligners out to eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.
Invisalign treatments are often faster than braces!
Invisalign costs and dental insurance coverage are similar to braces.

Common questions (and answers!) about Invisalign®.
- Which costs more, braces or Invisalign®?Invisalign® clear aligners generally cost about the same as traditional metal braces. But, of course, every case is unique, so we’ll be happy to provide a complete cost comparison when you come in for your Invisalign® consultation in Ballard, WA.
- Is Invisalign® covered by insurance?
Most dental insurance plans cover Invisalign® orthodontic treatments, just as they would traditional metal braces. To verify your coverage, please call us at (206) 784-6310.
- Does Invisalign® hurt?Invisalign® aligners are comfortable and made of flexible, custom-fit plastic trays. The trays fit snugly over your teeth and gums without irritating the inside of your mouth like metal braces.
During your orthodontic treatment, they gently apply pressure on your teeth and gradually move them into alignment. You may feel slight discomfort when switching to a new set of aligners, but this discomfort is short-lived for most patients. Some easily manage this with over-the-counter pain medication.
- Are you accepting new patients?
Yes, we’re always accepting new patients for all of our dental services and Invisalign® in Seattle.
