Over the years Invisalign has become more and more popular as an option besides traditional metal braces. As you research and learn more about Invisalign and how you can change your smile, we’re here to help! Below you’ll find a general overview, all the basics you might be curious about and some real before and after photos from our office.
Are You a Candidate?
With the latest advancement in the proprietary Invisalign software and aligner material, we are able to correct almost all types of tooth and bite misalignments. Common examples of this include crowding of lower front teeth, rotated upper front teeth, spacing between your teeth, and overbites. To determine if you are a candidate you can schedule a virtual consultation or in person consultation.
How Long Does the Process Take?
Most Invisalign cases in our office take six to eight months, depending on complexity and required movements. Some cases finish quicker while others end up taking longer. The amount of time is dependent on several things including how compliant you are wearing the trays, the movement required of the teeth, and the amount of space available to move the teeth. However, you will start to notice a change in your smile within the first few weeks and most can see progress after week one!
