Invisalign is a treatment that straightens teeth without traditional metal braces or brackets. It uses a series of custom-shaped, completely clear, removable aligners. Invisalign is almost totally invisible in the mouth, eliminating the bulky look of other braces. If you’re an adult who needs braces, Invisalign can be a discreet option to straighten your smile without a mouth full of metal. There are several other benefits to Invisalign over traditional straightening methods as well! The dentists at Contemporary Family Dentistry can help you decide if Invisalign is right for you.
STRAIGHTER TEETH FASTER
The method that Invisalign uses not only eliminates metal and brackets – it straightens teeth up to 50 percent faster than traditional braces! Every week, the clear aligner changes to the next in the series. That means every week, you’re one step closer to achieving your perfect smile. First, we’ll custom-make your Invisalign devices for you. They are virtually invisible, and will fit your teeth perfectly, thanks to modern 3D-scanning technology.
Each weekly aligner will shift your teeth vertically and horizontally (and even rotate them if necessary) slightly, using the right amount of force where you need it. Week by week, your teeth will move into the desired position based on your custom treatment plan. They use a special, multilayer material to shift the teeth without needing bulky metal. As your local Invisalign provider, we have everything you need to receive Invisalign as soon as possible.
Invisalign uses SmartTrack material and SmartForce technologies to make the finished product comfortable and snug in the mouth. It’s easy to put on for the day, and to take off while you eat, drink, and brush your teeth. Its features make Invisalign an effective tool for even the most complex cases! Our dentists will create your aligners with the utmost precision, achieving tooth movement that’s clinically proven to be 75 percent more predictable than traditional braces. In just a matter of weeks, you can have your ideal smile without needing braces. Plus, you can use the aligners to whiten or bleach your teeth as they straighten!
CREATE YOUR CUSTOM TREATMENT PLAN
During your first dental visit with us, we can map out your custom Invisalign treatment plan. Our highly experienced Invisalign-trained dentists will examine your teeth, discuss your needs, and evaluate whether Invisalign is your best option. If it is, we’ll digitally scan your teeth using a special system and/or take physical impressions for a perfect match. From there, we’ll create your treatment plan and estimate how long you will need your Invisalign aligners in pace. You’ll even get to preview what your new smile will look like!
Once we receive your custom-made aligners, you can start straightening your smile immediately! Simply wear the correct aligner 20-22 hours per day for the best results. Move onto the next aligner in the series according to your plan, and only take them out to eat, brush, and floss. You’ll see us again about every six weeks to check your progress, until you have the smile you’ve always wanted. The typical treatment takes about nine to 15 months to complete, with 18 to 30 different aligners.
