A great alternative to traditional, metal braces, Invisalign offers a way to straighten teeth over time, but without the clunky hardware feel and look.
The Invisalign Process
Your initial consultation will begin with a comprehensive examination to determine if Invisalign is right for you. For most people, Invisalign is a great option, and can produce great results and dramatic new smiles.
MAKING YOUR CUSTOM SET
Once a determination is made and it is determined that Invisalign can help you, a 3D scan is made of your mouth. Using the scan, a treatment plan is developed and your aligners are built to exact specifications.
Once you receive your first Invisalign set, you will be provided with instructions for wearing them. To get the most from your new aligners, most people will be wearing them for 20-22 hours per day and each set is usually worn for a few weeks.
Every 6-8 weeks, the doctor will need to reexamine your teeth to make adjustments as needed. This checkup is usually very fast.
Your New Invisalign Smile
Your new Invisalign smile can take months to achieve, but during the process, it will be difficult for anyone to tell that you are using them. They are virtually invisible.
In as little as 6 months, your smile can dramatically improve and your new smile is often permanent. More benefits include:
- No physical impressions
- Precise digital plan
- Reduced treatment time
- Fewer appointments
- High-quality materials
- Can be used alone or with braces
