Straighten your smile without changing your style.
Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth and achieve the beautiful smile you deserve, all without hindering your lifestyle or changing your appearance. The custom aligners are made of a clear, flexible plastic material called SmartTrack®. This patented thermoplastic material was developed exclusively for Invisalign and offers a comfortable, nearly invisible treatment, making Invisalign ideal for adults who are concerned about the visibility of braces.
With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about changing your lifestyle. The aligners are removable, so you can take them off to eat, drink and brush your teeth as you would normally and then put them back on without skipping a beat.
What to Expect From Invisalign® Treatment
Digital Tooth Impressions
At your first appointment, we’ll take digital impressions of your teeth and mouth using a virtual scan that creates 3D images and computer-generated mapping. This quick and easy process involves lasers and scanning devices, meaning you won’t have to deal with the gooey, uncomfortable tooth impression trays of the past.
Developing Your Treatment Plan
Using innovative technology and 3D imaging, we’ll work with the Invisalign specialists to develop a customized treatment plan to bring your beautiful smile to life. This technology allows us to show you what your results will look like as your treatment progresses, including your final results, with 75% more predictability compared to other brands of clear aligners (made from off-the-shelf, single-layer, .03-inch material).
Based on your treatment plan, a series of custom aligners made of proprietary SmartTrack material will be created for you.
Wearing Your Aligners
Each set of Invisalign aligners is designed to be worn for one to two weeks and will gradually move your teeth. While you can take off your aligners to eat, brush and floss, an effective Invisalign treatment plan involves wearing your aligners for at least 20 hours per day. At your orthodontic appointments, we will evaluate your progress and advise you on when to change to the next set of aligners.
Invisalign® Results — Your Smile Transformation
You’ll begin seeing your smile transform within weeks of starting your treatment. Final Invisalign results can be achieved in as little as six months, but most treatments take 12 to 18 months. The duration of your Invisalign treatment will depend on the extent of correction needed and how consistently you wear your aligners.
How Is Invisalign® for Adults Different From Invisalign® for Teens?
The Invisalign treatment process for adults and teens is relatively the same. The only minor difference is that Invisalign aligners for teens have a blue dot on the back that acts as a compliance indicator of how consistently the teenager is wearing them.
