Why Invisalign® Treatment is Worth the Investment

By: Dr. Junée F. Gardy


A straighter smile can make you feel more attractive and confident about your appearance. It can also show off your personality in the best light possible. When you have a healthy and beautiful grin, people tend to see you as more approachable, successful, and happy.

While there are several ways to improve your smile, Invisalign treatment is quickly becoming popular – and for a good reason. These clear aligners shift your teeth into the desired position over time.

Below, Dr. Junée F. Gardy explores the benefits of Invisalign treatment and why this method is favored over metal braces and brackets in Naples, FL. Call Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA, and learn why our unique process is considered worth the investment.

About Invisalign aligners

Invisalign aligners are made from flexible plastic and are custom-made to fit your teeth. They are nearly invisible when worn and may be removed when eating and drinking. The patented thermoplastic material is a great alternative for patients who want a straighter smile without invasive metal wires or brackets.

Invisalign treatment vs. metal braces

While both Invisalign treatment and traditional methods like braces both effectively straighten teeth, there are some key differences between the two:

  • Aesthetics: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible when worn. On the other hand, braces are noticeable and can make you feel self-conscious in social situations.
  • Comfort: Metal brackets and wires may cause irritation when rubbing against the soft tissues of the mouth. They also make eating and speaking difficult. Invisalign aligners do not aggravate the mouth or gumline.
  • Convenience: People with braces have restrictions about what to eat or drink. Our clear aligners can be removed, which means you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your aligners. You can also brush and use floss without any difficulty.

What about cost?

Invisalign treatment is considered an investment. However, overall costs depend on the severity of the misalignment and the length of your treatment plan. Dr. Gardy can provide a more accurate estimate during a consultation in Naples, FL.

That said, many dental insurance plans cover clear aligners just like they would cover metal braces. We recommend checking with your dental insurance to see if you qualify for coverage. In any case, Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA, offers several easy financing options to make Invisalign treatment affordable. Our administrative team can provide more information during your next appointment.

It may take time before seeing a straighter smile through Invisalign treatment. You will need to wear clear aligners for at least 22 hours a day to achieve the desired results. Follow-up appointments may be necessary to monitor the orthodontic progress. Ultimately, our patients at Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA, say the payoff is well worth the effort! A better smile can do wonders for your confidence and well-being.
