Cosmetic Dentistry: The Invisalign Process

So you want your teeth to look great and feel right, but you don’t want to spend the better half of a couple of years looking anywhere like the famous James Bond villain Jaws? Don’t despair, invisalign might be the treatment you’re looking for. It’s a clear, removable plastic aligner that nobody will even suspect you’re wearing.BackMountainDental

A Talk with your Dentist

The invisalign process begins with a visit to your local cosmetic dentist. There you will get a consultation where the dentist will identify your need for teeth realignment and recommend a treatment for you. If your oral health makes you a good candidate for invisalign, then you will be fitted with one.

Customized Treatment

Your dentist will not only fashion a custom invisalign that perfectly fits your teeth, but he will also offer you personalized treatment suited to your needs. A machine will take 3D images of your teeth for fitting, and the dentist will determine how often you will have to change your invisalign for an improved one.

The Aligners

Invisalign is made of clear and comfortable plastic, so you won’t have to worry about it irritating your gums. You can even remove it should it be too awkward to eat with, a practical function that conventional braces simply couldn’t provide. You will have to change your aligner after every few weeks until your ideal dental structure is achieved.
