Invisalign teeth straightening offers an alternative way to get a great smile, without having to wear ugly, metal braces. It is an increasingly popular method among adults who want to straighten their teeth without looking like a teenager. You can get the same great results without having to deal with the embarrassment and discomfort of metal braces.
What is Invisalign?
The Invisalign teeth straightening method involves creating a custom-made set of removable and transparent aligners that will progressively reposition and straighten your teeth. Simply remove the aligners before brushing, eating, flossing or special events. This method offers a much more convenient and comfortable solution to traditional metal braces. They are easy to clean, they do not cause mouth abrasions (like metal and wire can) and they do not require appointments for re-adjusting.
How does Invisalign Work?
3-D computer imaging is used to design a complete treatment plan for you. This will allow you to see the end result of how your teeth will look. A lab will then create several aligners to straighten and reposition your teeth over a time period of one or two years. Aligners are changed every two weeks until your smile has been completely transformed into a beautiful masterpiece. You will typically visit your dental professional every six weeks or so for progress reports.
How Much does Invisalign Cost?
That is a very difficult question to answer, because each patient has different needs and will require different levels of treatment. Generally speaking they are comparable to the price of traditional metal braces. It is recommended that you contact our dental office to make an appointment for a consultation. Once you have met with your dentist, he will be able to give you a much better idea of the cost for your Invisalign treatment. Additionally, some company provided or private dental plans will cover some or all of your Vancouver Invisalign treatment.
