Are crooked teeth affecting your smile’s confidence? Invisalign, the transparent plastic aligner system, offers an advanced treatment option without metal braces.
Put away your dreams of a time machine. You can get straighter teeth right now without metal braces. With Invisalign, your teeth will be gently shifted using a progression of clear plastic retainers called aligners. Our Spokane, WA cosmetic dentists, Drs. Ken & Marnie Collins, use cutting-edge software and manufacturing techniques to create custom aligners. These aligners effectively address crowding and spacing issues, and treatment times vary based on individual needs.
Invisalign is compatible with dental insurance and provides numerous benefits, including virtually invisible clear plastic aligners, flexibility, and ease of maintenance. Experience a comfortable and discreet orthodontic solution today by calling (509) 532-1111 for a consultation and evaluation.
The Invisalign Treatment Program
You’ll meet with Drs. Ken & Marnie Collins to discuss your expectations, and once it is decided that Invisalign is the best solution, you and he or she will map out a treatment plan with your goals in mind. They will then take impressions of your teeth that will be digitized to allow them to plan the gradual shift of your teeth. You’ll be able to see a representation of your teeth throughout the process, at each stage from the initial adjustment to the finished product.
Invisalign works by gently repositioning your teeth with a series of clear aligners. Each aligner applies enough pressure to encourage gradual progress from one aligner to the next. After wearing the aligner for a week or two, you will see satisfying results, and you can switch to the next aligner.
For best results, it is recommended that you wear your aligner every day for 22-23 hours. You should begin to see results with each aligner, and treatment can last as little as 6 months. Different teeth will have different requirements, but you can expect typically 20 to 30 sets of aligners. They are removable for purposes of eating, good dental hygiene and an occasional night out on the town.
