The Clear Alternative to Braces
Dr. Heaton is a certified Invisalign provider. He uses Invisalign clear aligners to gently straighten teeth for teens and adults. Invisalign can remedy most cases of crooked or misaligned teeth for patients who want an alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually and precisely move the teeth into place. Unlike metal braces, the aligners can be removed and only need to be worn 20 to 22 hours per day. Invisalign has been proven for over two decades to get results similar to traditional metal braces in most cases of crooked, crowded or gapped teeth, as well as poorly aligned bites. Best of all, Invisalign is virtually invisible.

Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign can be used by adults of any age and by teens whose adult dentition has fully erupted. Treatment is about the same length as with traditional braces and costs about the same. Invisalign is also covered under most dental insurance policies. Invisalign's greatest benefit is it’s virtual invisibility, but it has other advantages as well- the smooth, comfortable plastic of the Invisalign aligners can be more comfortable for some patients than metal braces, and patients can take out their aligners to eat whatever they want and to floss and brush their teeth.
Dr. Heaton is an Invisalign Teen provider. Invisalign Teen includes some nifty benefits to ensure success - teens get six spare aligners in case of loss, and indicators embedded in the aligners show how much they've been wearing them. Even so, studies by Invisalign have shown that, on average, teens are very compliant and wear their aligners for the correct amount of time.
Request an Appointment
Dr Heaton is as kind as he is competent. He treats me like a person, not a paycheck and I feel like I can trust him to only recommend what I need. I also referred an employee of mine who needed serious dental care and did not have a lot of money. Dr Heaton was flexible and kind and so helpful. Highly Recommend.Jason J.
Most people dread going to the dentist but I'm always excited to go especially when it means seeing all of the wonderful people who work there. My family has been going here for more than 20 years and I've never had a bad experience. You can count on walking out the door with a huge (minty fresh) smile on your face. Highly recommended!Gina D.
