Invisalign on containers


Straightening your teeth can improve the health and appearance of your smile, but braces are uncomfortable and draw attention.

There is an alternative to unsightly metal braces. Invisalign® can help straighten your smile easily and discreetly.

Astoria Dental Group helps patients in Queens, Long Island, NYC, and beyond achieve great cosmetic results with Invisalign.

Just What Is Invisalign?

You have probably heard of Invisalign, since it is such a popular treatment for straightening teeth. But you may be wondering what it is exactly. Put simply, Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that avoids many of the negatives that come with traditional braces.

Invisalign straightens your teeth with clear, strong plastic aligners. This makes it much less noticeable than the wires, brackets, and colors associated with traditional braces. The virtually invisible look of Invisalign is one of the biggest reasons so many patients from Queens, NY, and around the world choose Invisalign to improve their lives. 

The advantages of Invisalign don’t stop at aesthetics. While regular braces can break and necessitate rush trips to the orthodontist, Invisalign avoids these types of complications. Invisalign’s removability also makes it much easier to clean your teeth than braces, and studies suggest Invisalign users maintain better oral health than those who opt for other treatments.

Achieve Alignment without Interrupting Your Life


The trays are crafted using SmartTrack, a BPA-free plastic material. Since the aligners are clear, most people will never even notice you are wearing them.


At Astoria Dental Group, we carefully customize your aligners to fit comfortably. In addition, there are no wires or metal brackets to irritate the inside of your mouth during treatment.


The aligners are removable. During treatment, you can brush and floss normally and enjoy all of your favorite foods. Plus, there is no need for painful adjustments, which means fewer visits to our office during treatment.

As nerve wracking as one may think a visit to the dentist will be, I have to say I’ve had a great experience every time with this office. The staff is friendly, welcoming and pleasant. I worked with Cindy who is knowledgeable, thorough and walks me through the entire process with attention to all my questions. Always walk out of a visit on a good note. Highly recommend it.

I loved this place. The whole staff was polite and advised everyone of what kind of dental work was necessary and what kind wasn’t. Everyone here is extremely honest and are not the type of people to use fancy wordplay to steal money from your pockets. I had an amazing appointment with them which consisted of correcting my front teeth which they did in a superb fashion. I would recommend this place to anyone in need of a brighter smile.

Millions of Patients Have Straightened Their Smiles with Invisalign

Ready to Try It?

Invisalign can be an effective orthodontic solution for most teens and adults. Whether you have overcrowding, irregular spacing, misalignment - or more complicated issues such as an overbite, crossbite, or underbite - this treatment can help. Call the Astoria Dental Group serving Queens, Long Island, and the greater NYC area today to request a consultation.

Call us at: (718) 278-1123

You May Be a Good Candidate If:

You Desire Discretion

Many teenaged and adult patients choose this option because the clear trays are much more discreet than traditional braces.

You Are Responsible

To achieve your desired results, you must commit to wearing the aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours each day.

Your Case is Mild

Clear aligners may not work for patients with severe malocclusion, rotated teeth, or large gaps. Our doctors may recommend another orthodontic option for these advanced concerns.

Don't I Need an Orthodontist for Invisalign?

Because orthodontists are closely associated with braces, many people think that alternatives to braces require an orthodontist. In reality, both dentists and orthodontists are able to become trained in Invisalign treatment. At Astoria Dental Group in Queens, Dr. Carmen Every-Degel is recognized as a top Invisalign provider, and she has years of experience helping her patients achieve amazing cosmetic results.

We Provide Smiles People Are Proud Of

It's Never Too Late

Many patients worry that they're too old to pursue orthodontic treatment...

When many of us think of orthodontic treatment of any kind, we associate it with teenagers. But today, more and more adults are taking advantage of treatments like this that can allow them to achieve their goals without having to wear conspicuous metal braces.

The truth is that there is no upper age limit when it comes to Invisalign treatment. Even if your high school years are decades behind you, there has never been a better time to talk to us about clear orthodontics. Our Queens office welcomes patients from Long Island and throughout the area.

Highly Precise Treatment Plans with Advanced ClinCheck Software

When you come in for your consultation, our team will take precise impressions. The information gathered in these impressions will then be applied to the ClinCheck software. Using this advanced technology, we can plan a custom treatment down to the smallest tooth movement to ensure every tooth moves in exactly the right way for comfortable and aesthetically pleasing results. 

How Long Does Treatment Take? Results Typically Take 12 to 18 Months

Although each patient will require a different timeline, the majority of treatments will range from 12 to 18 months. Once the treatment is completed, you will be provided with a retainer that can be used to help you maintain your results.

During a consultation at our Queens office, we will fully evaluate your bite and determine if you are a good candidate for this type of treatment. At this time, Dr. Every-Degel can give you an estimated timeline.


During your follow-up appointment, we will take a series of digital scans, which will then be used to create your custom aligners. 


The fabrication of the aligners will typically require three to six weeks, at which point you will return to our office for fitting and adjustments.


At this time, your doctor will ensure that the orthodontics are comfortable and fit properly. You will receive instructions on how long to wear the retainers and instructions for proper maintenance techniques.

Wearing Your Aligners

Once you receive your new aligners, we recommend that you wear them for at least 20 hours per day. As you continue to wear them, your teeth will slowly begin shifting into proper position. Every other week you will start wearing the next set of aligners in the series.

Six-Week Checkups

About every six weeks, you will come in for an exam so that we can assess your progress and then make any necessary adjustments. 

You Can Have a Straight, Beautiful Smile in a Matter of Months!

Most Patients Achieve  a Healthy, Beautiful Smile in Less Than 18 Months

Depending on the severity of your misalignment, you will likely complete your treatment within 12 to 18 months. Most patients achieve dramatically straighter teeth as a result of this treatment. In addition to beautiful symmetry, Invisalign can also:

  • Make it easier to brush and floss
  • Improve the comfort of your bite
  • Reduce headaches 
  • Prevent excessive dental wear 
  • Raise your self-confidence

Some Patients Are Eligible For Accelerated Treatment

Invisalign® Express can straighten your smile in as little as three to six months. This treatment is not the right option for everyone, but if you are a good candidate you will receive a radiant smile faster than you could imagine.

Invisalign Express is a great fit for patients who have:

  • Recent tooth shifting 
  • Minor tooth crowding
  • Just a few misaligned teeth
  • A small amount of tooth rotation to correct
  • A need to straighten teeth before undergoing cosmetic procedures
  • A desire to remove braces before their orthodontic treatment has been completed

The significantly quicker timeline offered by Invisalign Express is preferred by many patients. However, if you have severe misalignment or spacing concerns then the traditional option may be the best for you. Dr. Carmen Every-Degel can make this assessment for you with a simple consultation at our Queens office.

How to Maintain The Results of Your Treatment

You play a major role in maintaining your results after Invisalign. Once you complete your treatment, there are some simple things you can do to maintain your straighter smile:

Wear a Retainer

Wearing a custom retainer or your last set of aligners will keep your teeth in their newly aligned position. You may be instructed to wear your retainer for several hours a day or every night indefinitely. Because you will need to wear a retainer on an ongoing basis, make sure to keep it clean and take it with you when you travel.

Visit Your Dentist

During your twice-yearly checkups, our dentists serving Queens, Long Island, and the greater NYC area will examine your teeth and mouth for any changes after your treatment. This will ensure lasting results and help maintain your straightened smile and oral health for years to come.

I've visited both Dr Every and Dr Degel and have had great experiences with both, with extensive work being done- extraction, implants, bridge, veneers, Invisalign, crowns, root canals and the basic cavities. The assistants are very helpful, staff is competent and friendly, the dental hygienist does a great job and I've never had to wait.

I adore Astoria Dental Group and . The Dr. Degel are absolutely wonderful: consummately professional, careful, gentle, precise, thorough, concerned and expert. Both my husband and I are patients and couldn't be happier. I moved to the practice shortly after it opened, so my care has been first-rate for some time. My husband came in subsequently, and family and friends began noticing that his teeth looked better than ever.

Invisalign Typically Costs More Than Braces A beautiful smile is priceless

comparison image of invisalign and metal braces
The cost of an Invisalign treatment plan is generally slightly higher than that of traditional braces. However, adults tend to prefer the Invisalign system due to the clear aligners and the convenience of being able to remove them.

Invisalign is Worth It 

Although the cost of Invisalign treatment may seem significant, patients from Queens, NYC, Long Island, and beyond agree that the benefits of orthodontics far outweigh the costs. A straighter smile is easier to maintain, which can provide long-term savings when it comes to your dental treatment. Additionally, it's difficult to put a price on the confidence that comes with a straighter smile. Many patients agree that when they can smile, laugh, or just look in the mirror without worrying about their appearance, the feeling is priceless.

The Many Advantages of Invisalign

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are inconvenient, painful, and unsightly. Invisalign aligners offer an alternative. During your course of treatment, you will not need to have our dentists perform the painful adjustments associated with braces — you simply switch aligners every two weeks and come to our office periodically to check on your progress.

Invisalign aligners are invisible and comfortable to wear. You can remove them when brushing, eating, or drinking — they do not complicate oral hygiene or your daily routine. In addition, the clear aligners have no metal to irritate your mouth, making them easy to wear around the clock. You’ll probably forget you’re even wearing them!

Braces May Be Necessary For Certain Patients


We always have our patients' best interests at heart and will never recommend a treatment we aren't confident will help you achieve your goals. Though Invisalign is a great orthodontic option for teens and adults who want to discreetly align their teeth, it isn't always the best solution. If you have severe misalignment, our dentist may recommend you receive braces instead. If you get tired of having braces toward the end of your treatment, our office may be able to switch you to Invisalign.
