Achieving a beautiful and straight smile without the visibility of traditional braces has never been so easy. Many people have found Invisalign® clear braces to be an efficient method for achieving evenly spaced teeth with minimal impact.
These customized and removable trays are used to align your teeth in a discreet and convenient way. Dr. Kin Wong at the Center Adult Dental Care has spent over two decades helping shape smiles for teens and adults in Burlington. If you want a confidence-boosting smile but aren’t sure of all your options, call us to talk about Invisalign today.
How Invisalign Works
After deciding to straighten your teeth, an important first step is to consult your dentist for the recommended treatment path. We will clarify the cost of each alignment option to help you make the right decision. For more complex alignment issues, we will refer you to a local orthodontist for options beyond Invisalign.
Your next appointment after the consultation involves taking digital x-rays, photos, and impressions. We send the information to the Invisalign headquarters for a precise determination of the timeline and specifications of the trays. Typical treatment time takes 18 to 24 months, but the exact timeframe will be customized based on the details of your case. Invisalign customizes your trays to the exact fit for your smile using computer-aided design.
Once manufactured, we will replace your custom trays every two weeks to guide the teeth into their proper alignment. After completing the full treatment, a removable or fixed retainer will continue to hold the proper alignment to ensure the work done by the Invisalign trays remains successful.
In addition to the traditional Invisalign trays, Invisalign Teen® and Invisalign Express® can be great options.
Invisalign Teen alignment trays provide extra space for a teen’s growing teeth. The trays perfectly guide emerging molars, freeing your teen from a lengthy or continual alignment schedule as their teeth continue to grow.
Invisalign Express expedites the alignment process down to only a few months for those who qualify. Those who typically benefit from this option are those who experience orthodontic relapse.
Why Choose Invisalign
Patients commonly express convenience as their number one benefit to the Invisalign process. Being able to remove the trays when eating brushing, or flossing allows you to straighten your teeth with minimal interruption to your daily life. Most of our patients prefer a more inconspicuous option which Invisalign offers with its minimally visible design.
