Invisalign® for Franklin Smiles
Straight teeth = A confident, healthy, and beautiful smile!
Do You Want Straight Teeth Without Braces?
Invisalign® is the answer you're looking for!
Many people want straight teeth, but dread the idea of wearing metal braces. Invisalign® is a popular and effective orthodontic alternative to traditional braces.
The Invisalign® system uses a series of progressive aligner trays and gentle pressure to move teeth into their desired positions – quickly and comfortably.
Dr. Olga Krikunenko is a highly-trained and experienced Invisalign® provider.
Our Patients Love the Advantages of Invisalign®
We think you will too!
Invisalign® aligners offer the unique convenience of being removable. The aligner trays can be removed for up to four hours a day letting you eat, brush, and floss your teeth.
One of the things people love the most about Invisalign® is no embarrassing metal mouth! The aligner trays are nearly undetectable and discreet, and won’t draw attention to your orthodontic treatment.
With Invisalign®, there are no restrictions on what you can eat. Go ahead and enjoy your favorite foods. Just remember to put your aligner back in when you’re done!
Treatment with Invisalign® can be up to three times faster than traditional braces! No need to wait to get that straight smile you want.
Straight teeth are healthier teeth because they are easier to clean. Having teeth and gums free of bacterial buildup will ensure a healthy smile for a lifetime.
Both teens and adults can use Invisalign® to treat overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites, crowded teeth, and teeth with gaps.

A stress-free experience! Dr. K and her staff are simply the best! Very polite and professional. Explained everything beforehand and encourages questions during the whole process whether it's a cleaning, a filling, or a root canal. I highly recommend them.

FAQs About Invisalign®
- What is the Invisalign® process?
Your Invisalign® treatment starts with a consultation with Dr. K. Together, a customized digital treatment plan is designed that shows how your smile will be progressively transformed.
You’ll come back to our office after the aligners are created. Once treatment starts, you will change to the next aligner in the series about every two weeks. The aligner trays must be worn for a minimum of 20 hours a day to get the best results. They can be removed temporarily to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.
When your teeth have reached their ideal position, your treatment with the Invisalign® trays will be completed.
- How long does treatment with Invisalign® take?
Treatment length can vary, but generally, the process is completed in about 12 to 18 months (about half the time of treatment with metal braces). Variables that can affect treatment time include the complexity of your case and how diligent you are about wearing your aligners.
Many patients start seeing straighter teeth in just a few weeks!
- How much does Invisalign® cost?
Generally, treatment with Invisalign® costs about the same as treatment with traditional braces. Before your treatment begins, Dr. K will be able to give you an estimate of the projected cost.
Many dental insurances cover orthodontic treatment. If you don’t have insurance, our team will work with you to find affordable options to help pay for your treatment. Visit our New Patients page to learn more about our financing options.
- Will I need to wear a retainer after my treatment is finished?
A retainer prevents teeth from shifting back to their old position. To ensure your teeth remain straight, we recommended wearing a retainer at night while you sleep.
After completion of your Invisalign® treatment, we will provide Vivera retainers to help maintain your new beautiful smile.
