Many people are hesitant to smile because of crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or a bite misalignment. With advances in dental technologies, it is now possible to straighten your teeth discreetly without using traditional metal braces and wires. If your goal is to have a straighter, more beautiful smile that truly reflects who you are, Invisalign is a proven teeth-straightening alternative to conventional braces. At Magic Smiles in Plainfield, we are a certified Invisalign provider.

What is Invisalign?

First launched over two decades ago, Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment alternative to traditional fixed metal or ceramic braces. Instead of bulky, uncomfortable brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear, flexible plastic aligner trays to gently and comfortably move your misaligned teeth into their intended positions in as little as 6 months.

What’s also great about Invisalign is that the trays’ removable feature allows you to eat most of the foods you love, while offering you easy access for teeth brushing and flossing. Even better, when your Invisalign treatment is through, you’ll have the straight, beautiful, natural-looking smile that you’ve always wanted!

Is Invisalign Better Than Braces?

At Magical Smiles, we’ve seen some amazing results in our Invisalign patients. The Invisalign removable braces system has become increasingly popular in recent years for reasons that include:

  • Comfort
  • Ease-of-care
  • Can be removed for tooth brushing and flossing
  • Virtually undetectable by others
  • Minimal lifestyle disruptions
  • No food restrictions

What is the Process for Getting Invisalign?

Invisalign is indicated for patients with mild-to-moderate teeth misalignments or improper bites (oral malocclusions), and may not be suitable for certain misalignment cases or complex bite problems. Patients who are screened with more serious smile imperfections are typically referred by Dr. Sharma to a licensed orthodontist for follow-up.

If you are a candidate for Invisalign, this is what you can expect during your course-of-


  1. Dental impressions of your teeth and mouth are taken, along with digital X-rays and photos using our comfortable intra oral camera. All that detailed information is then sent to the Invisalign lab.
  1. At the Invisalign lab, your aligners will be custom designed with computer-aided precision to ensure maximum performance and comfort. Once your custom-made trays are ready, we’ll call you to come and pick them up.
  1. Your Invisalign aligners are meant to be worn 20 to 22 hours each day, including while asleep, and only removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. If you don’t follow those instructions, you may have to continue your Invisalign treatment for a longer period of time.
  1. Based on your prescription, you’ll wear each set of aligners for one to two weeks. You will also be asked to schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Sharma every six to eight weeks so that she can monitor your progress. You will also receive your next batch of aligners during that office visit.

How Long do I Need to Wear Invisalign Aligners?

On average, most of our Invisalign patients achieve their smile-restoring goals within 6 to 24 months. When the initial level of smile correction needed is more pronounced, after the initial Invisalign treatment is over it may be necessary to wear a nighttime retainer for several additional months to ensure all your smile restoration goals are met.

Alternatives to Invisalign

In addition to Invisalign, we offer these teeth-straightening alternatives:

Invisalign Express – Ideal for patients with minor crowding or spacing issues, Invisalign Express is a shorter-duration orthodontic treatment that works in the same way as traditional Invisalign aligners.

Invisalign GO – Invisalign Go is a shorter treatment programme suitable for minor imperfections and simple cases. Invisalign Go uses fewer aligners, so treatment time can be as short as 4 months.

ClearCorrect – To correct malocclusion, a growing number of our patients are turning to clear aligners over traditional braces. ClearCorrect is another removable braces alternative for patients who want to straighten their teeth with minimal dietary restrictions and no obstructions to flossing and brushing.

I came for an emergency appointment and liked this practice so much that I am making them my regular dental practice. Everyone was very friendly and professional. Dr Sharma did a great job treating my issue and it was easy and painless! I will be recommending this practice to everyone.

The staff is genuinely friendly. Nicole, with whom I had first contact when I made my appointment, and Heather, the dental assistant were both extremely welcoming. Dr. Sharma is so kind and attentive. He communicated with me during the proceedure and put me at ease. He was also patient when numbing my mouth; making sure that I was comfortable before he continued. He called me after my visit to check and find out if I had any questions. When I called the office with a minor concern days after my visit, I received a prompt reply. I am so grateful for the doctor and his staff. I recommend his practice for everyone.

I recently has my four wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Sharma. I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff. I was really nervous but he definitely put me at ease and it was such a smooth experience. His whole staff is so nice, they will definitely take care of you here.

Can not express the amount of CARE and SYMPATHY Dr. Puri gave me without ever seeing me before. I suffered for 8 day under a different dentist. She was BOOKED but said to me, "I can not let someone suffer in pain like you are". I was like a 5 year old with tears and fears. She brushed my head and placed ice on my forehead. Communicated all steps before hand. THAT IS WHAT WE NEED IN A DENTIST. 18 MILLION STARS

My wife and I are here in Illinois visiting old friends. Been having an issue with my teeth and gums. I knew of the problem but was unable to get it taken care of before leaving home in New Mexico. My problem worsened. A friend recommended Dr. Jyoti Puri. I was able to get in due to a cancellation. Staff was great in helping me get my records from New Mexico. Everyone from start to finish was exceptional. My dental issue was worse than I thought. Dr. Puri explained clearly in terms I could understand and presented me with some options. Her care and skills made my procedure as painless as possible. Her surgical assistants Michelle and Griselda also were great with x rays and assisting in the procedure. 5 STARS PLUS! HIGHLY RECCOMMEND
