  • "As you walk in and are happily greeted by reception the first thing you notice is the care that has been taken to create a relaxing and comfortable environment while you wait, albeit a short wait. Perhaps most importantly your cleaning is done with the gentlest touch as every care is taken to avoid discomfort. Dr. Gentry is every bit an educator as she is a highly skilled dentist. While being seen she thoroughly explained, in easily understood terms, what was going on behind my lips and how to best continue good oral hygiene practices. Gentry Dental sets the bar high."

Invisible Braces in Charlotte, NC

Invisible Braces | Gentry DentalLiving with crooked teeth takes its toll in many ways. For instance, your confidence is affected when you feel embarrassed about the appearance of your smile.

Did you know that misaligned teeth also affect your oral health? Your teeth are harder to keep clean when they’re not aligned properly, which puts you at an increased risk for tooth decay and gum disease. A misaligned bite puts you at a higher risk for fractures and damage to your teeth and also contributes to a jaw joint disorder known as TMJ.

Perhaps you’ve considered straightening your teeth, however, you don’t want to wear the bulky metal brackets and wires of traditional orthodontics. Dr. Gentry offers two options for invisible braces that can help you straighten your teeth quickly and with discretion.


Instead of using traditional brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten teeth with gentle pressure. Because aligners are clear and snug fitting, they’re virtually invisible and easy to wear.

Aligners should be worn 22 hours per day to achieve your desired results; however, they can easily be removed for eating and brushing. This means that there are no dietary restrictions or changes to your home care routine as there are with traditional orthodontics. Aligners should be changed every two weeks, and most Invisalign cases can be completed in around 12 to 18 months.

Dr. Gentry can determine whether Invisalign is the right option for your needs with an examination, x-rays, photos, and models of your teeth. 3-D imaging allows her to create your treatment plan and show you what your smile will look like after it’s been aligned.

Invisalign achieves great results for busy adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth discreetly.
