WHAT IS INVISALIGN®?
Invisalign® straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners made with 3D computer imaging technology, and it is custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
Comfortable, clear and removable, Invisalign® transforms your smile without disrupting your life.
HOW DOES INVISALIGN® TREATMENT WORK?
At Corne Smith Dentistry, your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit perfectly over your teeth.
Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
When you change to the next set of aligners, usually every two weeks, your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your dentist.
Only Invisalign® clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place.
THE INVISALIGN® TREATMENT PROCESS:
Step 1 – The Consultation
At your initial consultation with Corne Smith Dentistry, your dentist will discuss your needs and evaluate whether Invisalign® treatment is right for you.
Step 2 – Your Custom Treatment Plan
Your dentist will either take physical impressions of your teeth or use a digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth.
Dr Corne Smith will then map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile.
Step 3 – Your Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Your custom-made aligners will be made of the proprietary SmartTrack® material. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
Wear your Invisalign® clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results, taking them out to eat, brush and floss.
Step 4 – Your Progress
As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. Corne Smith Dentistry may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week or two. You will visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9 to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
At every stage, you’ll be able to see your progress and imagine how far your new smile will take you.
