If you’re like most people, you want straight teeth. At the same time, you can’t imagine a mouth full of metal braces. Now, thanks to Invisalign®, you can straighten your teeth both discreetly and effectively! This FDA-approved system uses clear, removable aligners to incrementally straighten your teeth. That means no uncomfortable brackets, no wires, and no need to worry about food restrictions because you remove the aligners to eat and drink.
Your first step to straight teeth begins with Dr. Hutchison. Your treatment plan will be mapped-out in advance with the use of 3D computer imaging. This will allow you to see exactly how Invisalign® can help your smile. Your custom-made aligners will slowly straighten your teeth, and new aligners will be made for you every two weeks over a period of 9-15 months. Thanks to the discreet Invisalign design, no one will even know you’re undergoing treatment! If you want to hear more about the Invisalign process, ask Dr. Hutchison at your next visit.
Many people prefer Invisalign® to braces. They don’t want the embarrassment of wearing wires and brackets to fix their teeth, so they prefer clear aligners to the traditional braces. It is also a less invasive and significantly more comfortable treatment that requires fewer visits to the orthodontist.
Unfortunately, many times the decision comes down to the cost of Invisalign® versus the cost of traditional braces. Your insurance should be able to help.
Keep in mind that every case is different. Every mouth is unique, and every patient has different needs. That being said, traditional braces are typically $2,500 to $6,000, while Invisalign® is usually between $3,500 and $8,000. The range accounts for differences in patients’ specific needs. Some mouths need a little more work than others.
Insurance companies often cover braces and Invisalign®, though you should contact them directly to see how much they will cover.
Here at the office of Manon Bourque Hutchison, DDS, we want you to get the care you deserve. If you would prefer Invisalign® over traditional braces, we will work with you and your insurance company to determine how we can help.

Invisalign® uses a set of clear aligners to give you a dazzling smile. We know that you will probably have some questions, so we compiled a list of frequently asked questions below.
Will Invisalign® fit my lifestyle?
Many people don’t want braces because of the cost, discomfort, and inconvenience. However, Invisalign® is perfect for any adult or teen looking for a better smile.
The clear aligners are removable, so you can take them out and eat whatever you want. You can also take them out to brush your teeth, which will keep your teeth healthy through your whole treatment.
You can still do whatever you want when you wear your Invisalign® aligners. You can work, go to school, play sports, and do whatever else you enjoy doing without the hassle of metal braces.
You won’t need follow-up appointments as often, though each treatment plan is different. Typically, you won’t be going to the orthodontist’s office quite as often as you would if you were wearing traditional braces.
What is Invisalign®?
The Invisalign® system is a clear way to straighten your teeth and give you a dazzling smile using advanced, 3D computer-imaging technology to create your whole treatment plan from where your teeth are now to where they need to be.
Each clear aligner is custom made for your teeth. The aligners will start to move your teeth in the right direction comfortably. Every two weeks, you will get new aligners, which will move your teeth a little bit more until we achieve the desired result.
Since each mouth is different, treatment times will vary depending on your needs.
What are the benefits of Invisalign®?
Since Invisalign® is clear, you can get the results you desire without anyone even knowing you are getting treated. You can still perform all of your regular daily tasks while simultaneously and discreetly working on your smile.
Since the aligners are fully removable, you can eat whatever you want and maintain an uninterrupted mouth care routine.
Invisalign® is also more comfortable than traditional braces since the aligners are custom made for your mouth. Traditional braces often cause irritation from the metal wires and brackets.
With Invisalign® braces, you will spend significantly less time at appointments since the system is easy to use by yourself and requires very few follow-up visits.
Using the latest technology, we can show you exactly where you are and what your mouth will look like when you are done. Many people enjoy seeing a visual of their future perfect smile before they get started.
How many patients are in Invisalign® treatment?
More than 3,000,000 patients have invested in Invisalign® clear aligners, and more get started every day.
