Straighten Your Smile Without the Hassle
In a world where a confident smile speaks volumes, the journey toward a radiant smile begins here at Bell Family Dentistry.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment designed to straighten teeth discreetly. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign utilizes a series of clear aligners custom-made for your smile. Crafted from a smooth, comfortable material, these aligners gently shift teeth into position in half the time as braces. This innovative approach ensures the process is virtually invisible.
Wondering if Invisalign is the right fit for you? Dr. Bell and his team can help determine your candidacy for this modern orthodontic solution.
During your Invisalign consultation, Dr. Bell will assess your dental condition, taking into account your unique needs and preferences. Whether you have an overbite, underbite or crossbiteThis personalized approach allows him to create a tailored treatment plan that will pave the way for your dream smile.

Consultation and Treatment Planning
Your journey begins with a thorough consultation with Dr. Bell. Using cutting-edge technology, he will create a 3D model of your teeth, showcasing the anticipated transformation. This serves as a blueprint for your personalized treatment plan.
