Teeth that need straightening or a bite that needs correction?

The clear solution is Invisalign!

By Dr. Michael Costa

Knoxville Smiles at Malone & Costa Dentistry is ready to give you a straighter smile and great oral health without letting everyone see your braces. Talk to us about Invisalign.

What is Invisalign, and how does it work?

Clear, plastic trays worn over the teeth to gradually move them into their optimal position by putting gentle pressure on them. Treatment time depends on the level of movement needed and the hours per day the aligners are worn.
