If you've always been bothered by misaligned teeth or your teeth have shifted over the years, Invisalign® can discretely and comfortably remedy that. Beyond appearance, properly positioned teeth function better and are easier to keep clean.
Invisalign teeth-straightening system uses clear, custom-made aligners to gently move your teeth into their desired positions. These aligners are nearly invisible, making them an attractive option for anyone who wants to straighten their teeth without the noticeable appearance of traditional braces.
In the first step, Dr. Willis assesses your teeth and discusses your treatment goals.
Next, a 3D image of your teeth is created via state-of-the-art technology.
From this, Dr. Willis designs a personalized treatment plan, showing you the step-by-step process of your teeth's transformation.
Based on the treatment plan, a series of clear aligners is custom-made for you. These aligners are worn for about two weeks each, gradually moving your teeth into their desired positions.
You'll have periodic check-ups with Dr. Willis throughout the treatment to ensure everything is progressing as planned.
After completing the series of aligners, you'll be amazed at the transformation. Your teeth will be aligned, giving you the functional, confident smile you've always wanted. Treatment plans differ among patients but are typically at least six months.
