Virtual Smile Assessment

Questions about orthodontics? We can answer the most common questions with our Virtual Smile Assessment!

Curious if you or your child is a good candidate for Invisalign® or braces?
We can answer that! With our Virtual Smile Assessment tool, all it takes is answering a few questions and snapping a few photos to find out:

  • How much will braces or Invisalign cost?
  • How long will I have to wear braces?
  • Is braces or Invisalign the better choice for me or my child?
Here’s how it works:

1. Open the chat at the bottom of this page
2. Tell us a little about yourself or your child
3. Use the guided process to take a few photos
4. Submit your assessment, and we’ll take care of the rest!

If you can take a selfie, you can begin your journey to a confident smile!

Our experienced orthodontists will review your profile and photos and respond within 24-48 hours with answers to your questions, a cost estimate, recommended treatment plan, and next steps on how to schedule your complimentary exam.

During your complimentary exam, our team will fully examine your teeth and bite as well as take comprehensive x-rays to ensure the recommended treatment plan is the best path forward.
