How Does Invisalign Work?

Instead of traditional metal wires and silver brackets, Invisalign treatment takes a different approach to your orthodontic journey. Our doctors will take detailed impressions of your smile and send them off to the Invisalign laboratory to create a series of clear, plastic aligners. Each aligner represents a different stage of your teeth as they’re gradually moved towards the desired positioning.

The patient’s responsibility is to wear each aligner for the recommended timespan (typically 1-2 weeks) before switching to the next one in their provided set. They will also need to attend brief, routine appointments at Dentistry by Design so that progress can be gauged at appropriate intervals and any necessary adjustments can be made.

In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, the Invisalign aligners are removable. This means that patients won’t have to make any inconvenient changes to their diet or oral hygiene routine at home throughout the course of treatment. If you have a big event coming up that you’d like to look your very best for, it’s even fine to remove the aligner(s) for an hour or two to enjoy yourself. In most cases, Invisalign treatment will be complete in 8-18 months.

Invisalign FAQs

Although you’d like to get a straight smile using a nearly invisible solution, it’s normal to have several questions before you’re ready to commit to Invisalign. We take the time to address your concerns during your initial consultation. While you wait for your visit, here are the answers to a few of the most common questions we hear to help you make the best choice for your smile.

How long will my treatment take?

There isn’t any way to determine how long you’ll need to wear the aligners without first evaluating your orthodontic needs. While most patients are completed with their series in about 12 months, it varies depending on the complexity of your needs.

Patients who have severe orthodontic issues will require more aligners. As a result, their treatment will take longer than someone who only needs to make minor adjustments. We will explain how long you can expect the process to take and your treatment plan during your consultation. It’s important to follow your plan correctly to ensure you don’t add unnecessary delays to achieving your results.

How much does Invisalign cost?

There isn’t a set cost for Invisalign because the price is determined by several factors, like the number of aligners needed to reach your goals. We will provide you with a custom estimate during your consultation and explain your payment options to keep your new smile affordable, like using third-party financing with CareCredit.

Can I use my dental insurance?

Many insurance carriers cover a portion of the cost of the treatment after paying your annual deductible; however, it varies depending on your policy. We will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to file the necessary claims and paperwork, so you have one less thing to worry about. A member of our team will take the time to explain how your benefits are being used and if there’s a remaining balance. We accept several forms of payment to cover any out-of-pocket expense.

Will I need a retainer after I finish my treatment?

You will need to wear a retainer to prevent your teeth from moving back into their previous positions. This protects your investment to ensure your straight smile lasts.
