For many people, Invisalign® clear aligners are an ideal alternative to metal braces for straightening teeth, and correcting bite issues, without the need for bulky brackets and wires. Our Langley dentists share how the Invisalign treatment process works, from start to straight smile finish.
Looking for a low-profile orthodontic treatment?
If you're searching for a discreet orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth or correct a bite issue, without the need for traditional metal braces, Invisalign may be right for you!
This is how the Invisalign treatment process works:
1 - Book a Consultation
Your first step to straighter teeth is to visit your dentist for an Invisalign consultation.
During your consultation the dentist will carefully examine your teeth and bite to determine whether Invisalign clear aligners might be right for you.
If you're a good candidate for Invisalign treatment, your dentist will do a series of detailed scans using our intraoral scanning technology and give you a digital preview of what your smile could look like once your treatment is complete.
2 - Your Personalized Treatment Plan
Every smile we treat is unique. Based on your smile goals and the results of your initial examination and scans, your dentist will create a personalized treatment plan to map out your journey to a straighter smile! Your personalized treatment plan will describe each step of your Invisalign treatment, and provide you with insights regarding timelines and what you can expect from your Invisalign treatment.
3 - Clear Aligners Created Just For You
Each of the clear Invisalign aligners in your treatment series will be created specifically to fit your smile. Throughout your treatment the custom aligners will gently shift your teeth into their corrected positions. Invisalign aligners are made from a clear flexible plastic and do not contain any gluten, BPA, or BPS.
4 - Start Your Journey to a Straighter Smile Right Here
When your first series of aligners arrive at your dentist's office you will be contacted to come pick them up so that your treatment can begin.
When you visit us to pick up your aligners, your dentist will check to ensure that they fit your smile correctly, show you how to wear your aligners properly, review your treatment plan with you, and answer any questions you may have.
Then you're ready to get started!
5 - Nothing Can Stop You Now
Your Invisalign aligners will be almost invisible while you're wearing them. Which means that hardly anyone will notice that you're having your teeth straightened. And your Invisalign aligners are removable so you won't need to make any changes to your diet. Best of all - with the discreet low-profile design of Invisalign aligners you will feel confident smiling even while you are straightening your teeth.
