Check out Invisalign in Summerlin and find out how digital technology can straighten your teeth without unsightly orthodontics.
Your only option to straighten your teeth used to be wearing braces for a number of years. With Invisalign, you are the only person who knows the truth: nearly invisible aligners will bring back your perfect smile.
Invisalign utilizes a cutting-edge digital technology to produce a complete detailed model of your teeth. This develops a series of clear trays constructed of medical-grade plastic that fit snugly over your teeth while being almost invisible.
Meanwhile, your teeth are shaped the way they were designed to be. Invisalign does the same job as that of noticeable braces. It takes 20-22 hours a day for a year to a year and a half and you do not need to worry about any food or drink restrictions. The cost of Invisalign is similar to traditional braces and a great option for teenagers and adults alike. And every two weeks, you can change your aligners as you desire. Even better, no painful adjustment appointments are required.

Sure can, thanks to new advancements. There is a reason why Invisalign is popular, especially with teenagers.
Of course, that’s what it is designed for, straightening your teeth.
There might be some mild discomfort, especially at first, but not as much as traditional orthodontia. With each visit, the pain usually fades as your teeth continue to adjust.
No! The aligners fit quite snugly over your teeth. You may have a slight lisp in the first few days but that quickly goes away.
The truth is that the cost of the Invisalign treatment is comparable to braces. Check with your provider since many insurance plans cover Invisalign treatments.
During your first visit, your dentist will go over the process and produce a customized step by step digital plan for you. Once you and your dentist are on the same page and in agreement, your first set of aligners are manufactured in a state-of-the-art Invisalign lab.Then the journey to a better smile begins: your first aligners are inserted and the mission to straighten your teeth is off to a great start. Remember, you must wear the aligners between 20 and 22 hours each day. You can remove them to eat, drink and your daily hygiene routine. You still need to brush and floss!
Your teeth may feel like they are looser but that is par for the course. It’s normal at first to feel some discomfort as you adjust to having aligners in your mouth. The great news is that your gums are not only healing but also reforming around each tooth. It’s fine to eat and drink while using the aligners (unlike braces) but avoid smoking and drinks that can stain your teeth. Make sure to remove your aligners when having a snack or chewing gum.
Every two weeks or so, you will need to come to our dental office to swap out your aligners. We can also provide you with several trays at once so can swap them at home. A retainer may be recommended once you complete the entire process. This can help prevent your teeth from moving back into their original configuration. The entire Invisalign process takes between 12 and 18 months but is well worth it in the long run.
