The Clear Answer is Invisalign®!
This page is dedicated to all of our valued adult patients in Grand Rapids who struggle with how to find a reasonable solution for a straighter smile. We want you to know how easy and affordable it is to put your crooked, uneven teeth in the past when Invisalign is in your future. This has been a game-changer for adults interested in a more discreet way to achieve straight teeth, compared to more traditional metal braces. Are you ready to learn about how Invisalign works and its many life-changing benefits that can help you? Talk to the team at Smiley Family Dentistry.
Invisalign for adults uses BPA-free, clear plastic aligners that fit your teeth comfortably. Think of the aligners as flexible, thin mouthguards that are designed to assist in gradually moving your teeth into their desired alignment. Your aligners are custom-created using state-of-the-art digital technology using 3D x-rays, scans, and photos. Invisalign will carefully produce a series of aligners just for you based on your treatment needs and goals. You won’t have to worry about annoying brackets and wires that can lead to unwanted irritation and interruption of your daily life. Doesn’t that sound like the orthodontic solution you’ve been looking for?
Once you’re approved for treatment and Invisalign has completed your aligners, you can immediately get started. You’ll want to wear each set of new aligners for about two weeks. The good news is that throughout the day, you can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss your teeth. Every time you replace your aligners, your teeth are going to be on their way to supreme straightness. We’ll generally see you at our Grand Rapids dental office once every six weeks to monitor your progress. Total treatment time with Invisalign varies, but average results are expected within nine to 15 months.
