Straighten Your Smile in Three Easy Steps
Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to straighten your smile. The treatment works up to two times faster than metal braces and allows you to live with far more freedom.
The Invisalign process is relatively simple and can typically be completed in just three steps. Learn what to expect throughout your treatment.
Step One: Initial Consultation
When you visit us for your initial consultation, Dr. Strait will use our iTero Element® scanner to create a high-resolution 3D model of your teeth and jaw. This information is then sent to a laboratory where your aligners will be customized to fit your unique bite.
Dr. Strait will also use this first visit to get to know you and your treatment goals. He’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have and get to work on developing an ideal treatment plan that meets your needs.
Step Two: See Your Results
Invisalign offers a unique opportunity by allowing you to see the final results of your treatment before the process even begins. This is because our highly advanced modeling equipment predicts what your new smile will look like with stunning accuracy.
As a result, you can go into your treatment with total confidence.
Step Three: Smile With Freedom and Confidence
Unlike braces, Invisalign allows you to live unrestricted throughout your treatment. Since the aligners are removable, you can enjoy all your favorite foods and drinks while still easily keeping your trays clean. Best of all, the aligners are virtually invisible so no one will notice you’re wearing them.
From the time your treatment starts, you’ll receive a new pair of aligners every two weeks, with each pair designed to act on certain teeth until your desired results are achieved. Thanks to Invisalign, you can enjoy a stunning new smile up to two times faster than metal braces.
