The smile is the first thing that most people notice. Research shows that, of the various aspects of the smile, straightness of the teeth is the primary characteristic that catches the eye. When your teeth are in proper alignment, you are more likely to feel confident about your appearance. At the same time, a straight smile also leads to better oral health. Dr. Kovtun offers patients from Brookline and surrounding areas like Boston multiple options for creating a straighter, healthier smile.
Invisalign is an orthodontic system that has been designed to address the complaints most people have had about braces. In fact, Invisalign does not involve braces at all; it uses an aligner system through which the smile can be beautifully corrected. At one time, Invisalign was considered more of a cosmetic teeth-straightening treatment. Today, however, we can help patients correct overcrowding and spacing issues as well as mild to moderate bite problems such as underbite, crossbite, and overbite.
There are several reasons teens and adults find Invisalign appealing. The absence of brackets and wires creates an entirely different experience without decreasing results. As teeth are gently moved into alignment with consistent pressure from clear plastic aligners, the smile remains natural in its appearance. The BPA-free plastic is so clear that most people cannot even see the aligners. An additional benefit of the aligner method is that no foods must be given up. Aligners are removed before meals and reinserted after teeth have been brushed or rinsed. It's that simple.
Simple and straightforward, Invisalign is developed with innovative, sophisticated technology to give you incredible results.

I get my teeth cleaned here every 6 months; surprisingly it's done by a dentist and not a hygienist. I have also gotten fillings done here on a couple of teeth. I had a sensitive tooth and got a fluoride treatment once. All top notch work! Friendly & chatty dentists and front office staff.
Most importantly, I got my wisdom teeth extractions done here. No swelling, almost no pain - quick & easy. And a tooth was impacted!
I have good insurance so my out of pocket is very low, hence I cannot comment on the cost. I highly recommend this office. It's in a nice clean safe neighborhood. Stop by at Trader Joes on your way home.
