Carterville Dental Center is proud to offer you Invisalign clear aligners as an alternative to metal braces. These popular aligners give you the advantages of traditional braces but with a different look. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and are customized to fit your teeth. They are engineered to provide the right amount of pressure to align your teeth accordingly and the convenience of being detachable. Our dentist will arrange you a customized treatment plan when you choose Invisalign and will give you instructions on how to proceed at home.
