Are you embarrassed by your smile because you have crooked teeth? Even overbites or underbites can chip away at your self-confidence. If you’re not completely comfortable with your grin, coworkers and friends will pick up on the insecurity. But even traditional orthodontics can be harmful to your self-esteem. Awkward, metal braces give an immature and adolescent appearance, and it can undo the years you’ve spent cultivating your professional look. For your benefit, Dr. Leatherwood can correct your orthodontic dilemmas with Invisalign clear braces technology.

The Invisalign clear braces system was developed with adults and older teens in mind. Dr. Leatherwood knows that nobody wants to feel self-conscious or awkward while undergoing necessary treatment for orthodontic problems. You’ll come to Leatherwood Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Denton, TX for a consultation appointment to determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign clear braces technology.

When it’s decided that you do qualify for Invisalign clear braces, our staff will take images of your teeth and jaw. We’ll also take a 3D impression of your bite to give Dr. Leatherwood a more comprehensive picture of your jawline, and because it will help her plan out your Invisalign treatment. Then, our staff will send her orders and the images to Invisalign clear braces creators, who will fabricate your orthodontic solution according to Dr. Leatherwood’s orders. Once Invisalign clear braces creators receive your images and Dr. Leatherwood’s notes, the Invisalign company can create your braces system.


Invisalign clear braces are customized clear trays that shift your teeth into proper place. You’ll wear these trays continually, and take them out when you need to brush, floss, or eat. As we’ve said, most people won’t notice that you’re wearing them at all because they’re made from a highly-durable and clear plastic, and have been made to fit your unique set of teeth.

You’ll switch to a new Invisalign clear braces tray about every two weeks as your teeth move into place. Dr. Leatherwood will want to see you occasionally to monitor your progress while you use Invisalign clear braces, just to check that everything is going according to plan and no unforeseen troubles arise. The staff at our Denton office will be excited to see how your mouth is responding to the therapy as well, and you’ll be able to show off your improving smile every time you stop by our practice!
