How Invisalign Works

In the end, Invisalign is much less involved than metal braces. It consists of clear, plastic trays worn in a series. These “aligners” act upon your teeth with micro-movements, slowly shifting the pearly whites into place. You would wear each set for 20-22 hours daily over a few weeks. (Anything less will lead to treatment delays.) In doing so, you’d get ideal results in only 12-18 months. That’s a fairly short time to reach a straight and balanced smile!

The Benefits of Invisalign

Compared to metal braces, Invisalign has many great benefits. The most common upsides include:

  • Discreet Treatment – Instead of brackets and wires, your Invisalign trays will use clear plastic. They won’t draw any unwanted attention to your grin.
  • High Convenience – Invisalign aligners are removable and don’t interfere with meals or teeth cleaning.
  • Better Oral Hygiene – Invisalign trays let you brush and floss normally. In other words, they’ll allow you to maintain better oral hygiene than metal braces would.

SureSmile® Clear Aligners

As helpful as it is, maybe you'd like something besides Invisalign. We can gladly show you our second option if so – SureSmile® clear aligners. These fine trays don't need as many adjustment visits as Invisalign does. Given this fact, they tend to deliver top results more quickly. SureSmile® is also less expensive due to using fewer trays.

Ultimately, Dr. Shah can help you choose between Invisalign and SureSmile®. He’ll assess your mouth to see which one suits you during the consultation.
