Invisalign

What is Invisalign?

invisalign-clairemontInvisalign is a revolutionary brace than can straighten your teeth with multiple removable aligners, which are custom built to fit your teeth. They must be replaced every 2 weeks, and as time goes by they will move your teeth to the desired angle. Invisalign is user removable, so you can eat, brush, and drink freely. They are basically painless, as they have no metal parts that can irritate the gums and teeth. As an added bonus they are clear, so your smile will remain the same.

Almost everyone with straightening issues is eligible, so ask our dentist to give you a smile assessment to address your lifestyle’s needs. Please note that this is a clinical diagnosis, and to discuss invisalign in detail, you must go to your dentist.

Right about now you may be asking why go with invisalign over traditional braces. Well, they can allow you to eat any food you want, they are user removable, the device is invisible, it is constructed of plastic vs metal, and the office visits are only every four to six weeks. You may even consider veneers over invisalign. Veneers can only cover up some of your problems, while invisalign actually turns the tooth. Veneers require the removal of enamel every 5 to 10 years, and coffee and wine must be avoided to prevent discoloration. Ultimately, it comes down to preference and what best suits your needs.

Invisalign can cost anywhere from 3,000 to 8,000 dollars depending on your needs. Most dental insurance plans can cover up to $3,500 of your invisalign treatment. Our dental office offers many different financial options to best suit your financial needs.
