Bella Smiles offers Invisalign® for teens and adults who want to straighten their smiles. This popular brand of “invisible braces” uses a series of removable aligners to gently reposition teeth. Invisalign is ideal for patients who need mild to moderate orthodontic care. Invisalign is used by millions of patients because it is safe, effective, and convenient. Invisalign won’t damage teeth, gums or TMJ and many patients see full results in as little as 6 – 12 months. Dr. Salvatore Lotardo is a Roslyn, NY Invisalign® provider. Invisalign® are clear braces that offer a convenient, discreet and comfortable option for teen and adults.
Invisalign® vs Metal Braces
Straightening your teeth will support long term dental health in addition to providing the smile you have always wanted. Invisible braces alleviate many of the hassles associated with traditional metal braces:
No dietary restrictions
Easy removal for teeth brushing, flossing and routine dental care like your bi-annual teeth cleaning
No risk of tooth enamel staining from permanently attached brackets
Smooth, comfortable materials used do not irritate the gums and soft tissues in the mouth
Is Invisalign® the right choice for me?
Invisalign® is for teens and adults who need mild to moderate orthodontic treatment. Dr. Lotardo will evaluate your condition to determine your candidacy at his Roslyn, NY cosmetic dentistry office.

Invisalign® What to Expect
The Invisalign® Process
The Invisalign process begins with digital impressions and a scan of your teeth done at our Roslyn, NY dentist office, which is used with the CAD/CAM software for planning your treatment and fabricating aligners.
With this specialized software, you can see each step of the treatment plan, tracking your teeth’s movements with each set of aligners. We will send the files to the Invisalign® laboratory that will then generate several sets of clear plastic aligners to be worn for a specified amount of time each day. The number of aligners and length of your Invisalign® treatment will depend on the problem(s) being addressed and desired result.
You will return to our Roslyn, NY office to obtain your first set of aligners that will need to be changed every 2 weeks. While the aligners should be removed for eating and cleaning your teeth, you should wear your aligners most of the day (22 -23 hours a day is suggested).
