Invisalign Clear Aligners

The world’s most comfortable and convenient way to create a straight, stunning smile, Invisalign is the cosmetic dentistry technology of the future. Let the professionals here at Artistic Smiles show you how to transform your smile.

What is Invisalign?


Most people have heard the name but may not actually know what Invisalign is. Invisalign is the revolutionary new technology that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth.
There are three steps to a new smile with Invisalign.
•  We use a 3D scan to take a digital image of your teeth. After showing you the computed ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos, we design the best possible treatment plan for you. We make sure to explain the cost and how long the treatment is expected to take and answer any questions you might have.
•  We create a series of clear plastic aligners for you. You wear each aligner for a prescribed amount of time before moving to the next in the series. We will check in with you regularly, at least every 90 days, during this period to make sure everything is going well.
•  After you have achieved the desired results, we will craft a retainer for you to wear that will keep your smile looking happy and healthy.

How Long Does it Take?


Every case is unique, depending on your unique anatomy and bone structure. Some cases can be treated in as little as six months. Others may require a bit longer. However, you should start seeing results within just a few weeks.

How Does it Work?


The aligners work by using carefully calibrated force to put pressure on your teeth. This causes the periodontal ligament - the connective tissue that adheres your tooth to the bone - to stretch. Inflammation follows as your body attempts to heal, causing the bone to break down on the compressed side, while building up on the stretched side. In this way, your tooth actually moves into the correct place on your jaw, but does so in an incremental, stable way that does not decrease the health or stability of your teeth.

Is Invisalign Right For Me?


Invisalign can treat a wide array of conditions, from gapped or crowded teeth, to underbites, overbites and crossbites. Adults and older teenagers are great candidates for Invisalign because their transparency helps improve self-confidence. However, Invisalign isn’t right for everyone.

If your case is severe, you may have to opt for another option, such as traditional metal or clear braces. Children and young teenagers are also poor candidates for Invisalign because their teeth are still growing. The efficacy of Invisalign is dependent on you: the patient. Aligners need to be worn at least 22 hours a day, but they need to be taken out if you are eating or drinking anything other than water. If you are someone who easily misplaces or loses things, or if you do not want to remove your aligners every time you eat or drink, Invisalign may not be for you.

Invisalign is an exciting treatment option for people looking to straighten their smile without embarrassing and intrusive braces. Call 424 781-1400 to talk to the professionals at Artistic Smiles to find out more about Invisalign today!
