Invisalign treatment consists of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. And since your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by you and Dr. Nicole Sivie or Dr. Brad Williams, you know you'll end up with a smile that truly fits.
In contrast to traditional braces which incorporate metal brackets and rubber bands, Invisalign features removable, nearly invisible aligners (invisible braces) that work to straighten teeth. Plano dentists Dr. Williams and Dr. Sivie are happy to offer Invisalign to our patients of all ages.
What does getting Invisalign in Plano entail?
To start, we will take photos and make impressions of your teeth before sending them to an authorized Invisalign lab. The company will then send us back a 3D model to show how your teeth will move and what your smile will look like at the end of the process. Patients seeking ways to correct an underbite, overbite, or extra spacing especially enjoy this treatment because results can be achieved in as little as 6 to 18 months. Additionally, the upkeep of oral hygiene isn’t compromised because the aligners can be removed while eating, flossing, and brushing. For optimal results, Invisalign aligners should be worn for 22 hours a day.
