Are you looking to straighten your teeth without having to wear traditional braces?

You're in the right place: Delany Dental Care is a certified Invisalign® provider.

Learn how our dentists in Gurnee, IL, transform smiles with this invisible orthodontic solution.

A Closer Look at Invisalign

An alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign treatment can correct a range of misalignment issues using a series of custom aligners. Unlike braces, however, this orthodontic alternative is nearly undetectable while worn, making it an ideal solution for teens and adults alike. Depending on your unique needs, treatment can take anywhere between six and 18 months.

Why So Many Patients Choose Invisalign

There are several reasons dentists and orthodontists alike recommend Invisalign, including:

All-Day Comfort

When you think of orthodontic treatment, you may picture bulky wires and brackets that irritate the inside of your mouth. Invisalign aligners, however, are crafted from smooth, flexible plastic that won’t bother your tongue or cheeks. 

Low-Profile Look

Many patients may feel self-conscious about smiling while wearing braces. Fortunately, these clear aligners are virtually imperceptible against teeth; no one is likely to notice you’re even wearing them. With Invisalign, you can smile confidently in photos, at work, and beyond.

Incredible Convenience

Removable trays make it easy to practice good oral hygiene: you won’t have to brush and floss around wires and brackets that trap food particles. With aligners, you won’t have to change your oral hygiene routine or give up any of your favorite foods, like you might with traditional braces.

Are You Ready for a Straighter Smile? Take Advantage of Invisible Orthodontics

Misaligned teeth aren’t just a cosmetic issue — they can take a toll on your overall dental health by making it more difficult to clean your teeth properly. If severe enough, orthodontic issues can also lead to jaw pain and headaches.

You don’t need to visit an orthodontist and get braces to address these concerns: our dentists in Gurnee have helped many patients straighten their smiles with this sleek, comfortable solution. To learn more about if Invisalign is right for you, get in touch with Delany Dental Care or call:

Does Insurance
Cover Invisalign?


Invisalign is sometimes covered by insurance, at least in part. Whatever your policy states, our team will work to maximize the benefits available to you. Additionally, our office also accepts CareCredit, a third-party lender, to help you manage out-of-pocket costs.

Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign? Factors to Consider

While this incredible innovation in orthodontics has helped many, it’s not the best solution for every patient. Our dentists will check a few things to determine your candidacy for Invisalign and develop a customized treatment plan.

Severity of Misalignment

Invisalign is ideal for those with mild to moderate bite issues. If you have more severe malocclusion, you may need traditional braces that apply more pressure onto teeth. Even if aren’t quite sure if you qualify for aligners, it’s worth exploring your options with our dentists at a consultation.

Your Current Oral Health

Tooth infections, decay, and gum disease must be addressed before starting Invisalign. Fortunately, our team is skilled in all aspects of general dentistry and will do everything needed to get you ready for this orthodontic treatment.

Dedication to Treatment

To get transformative results in a timeframe that you’re happy with, you need to have the discipline to stick to the treatment in full. Patients will need to wear their aligners 20-22 hours a day to get the results they’re after. Those that are diligent about wearing their custom aligners see results in the shortest amount of time.

What to Expect
From This Orthodontic Treatment Process

Invisalign can straighten your smile in six to 18 months, depending on your unique case.

Initial Consultation

Your dentist will examine your teeth and bite as well as discuss your smile goals with you to help determine whether aligners are right for you. At this time, they will also be able to identify any oral health issues that should be addressed before moving forward with this treatment plan.


Our team will take detailed impressions of your teeth, gums, and oral structures. These will be used to craft a series of custom clear aligners that will gradually shift your teeth into the proper position.


It typically takes a few weeks for technicians to create your clear aligners and send them back to our Gurnee, IL, dental office.


When your clear aligners are ready, you'll return to our office to test their fit. Your dentist will ensure the aligners feel comfortable in your mouth before you leave. You'll wear each set of aligners for a few weeks before moving on to the next pair. 

Treatment Process

Our team will conduct periodic checkups to ensure your treatment is on course and provide you with new aligners as your teeth move. How often you’ll have to return to our office for appointments depends on the severity of your case. 

Get the Most Out of Invisalign Tips for Maintaining Results

With proper care, you’ll be able to enjoy a straight, symmetrical smile for years. 

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Continue to brush twice daily and floss once daily after your Invisalign treatment wraps up to keep plaque and bacteria buildup at bay.

Wear Your Retainer

It’s crucial to wear your retainer at night after you’ve completed your Invisalign treatment. This helps preserve the work all of the aligners have done. Not wearing your retainer regularly can cause your teeth to shift out of their new position.

Visit Us Regularly

We consider ourselves your smile partner; after treatment, make sure to visit us at least every six months so we can perform routine dental cleanings and prevent oral health issues from developing.

Add Brilliance to Your Straightened Smile With Professional Teeth Whitening

An orthodontist helps patients achieve straighter teeth. But with Delany Dental Care, straighter teeth are just the beginning. In addition to routine cleanings, our dentists can professionally whiten your teeth for a brilliant smile. Visit us to learn how our host of cosmetic dentistry solutions can transform your smile after Invisalign.
