You’d like to straighten your teeth, but you don’t want everyone to know you have braces. Fortunately, there’s a convenient solution for you: Invisalign. At Treasured Smiles Dentistry, our Frankfort, IL dentists are trained and certified in this exciting new treatment.
Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It's virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you're straightening your teeth.
While orthodontics has been around for more than 100 years, Invisalign is a relatively new technology. Here’s how the process works at our Frankfort, IL clinic:
- You meet with a dentist at Treasured Smiles Dentistry to discuss your options and decide whether Invisalign is right for you.
- If you decide to proceed with Invisalign, your dentist evaluates your teeth and creates a personalized treatment plan. The dentist sends treatment instructions to Invisalign.
- Invisalign uses 3D computer graphics technology to create a series of aligners. Depending on your treatment plan, you may have anywhere between 12 and 48 aligners.
- You wear your first aligner for about two weeks before switching to the next aligner. Your teeth will gradually move into place until they reach their final position.
Invisalign aligners are like clear braces that move your teeth without attracting attention. You wear your aligner at all times during the day, although you can take it out to brush, floss, and eat. Your friends and family members won’t even notice that you’re getting your teeth straightened. In about a year, you’ll have a straight new smile.

To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign. Invisalign is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every adult. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you.
