Invisalign can straighten your smile discretely, and with less hassle than traditional metal braces. Today our BC dentists share how you can have a straighter smile in just 3 easy steps with Invisalign.
Straightening your smile with Invisalign is easy! In just 3 easy steps you can be on your way to a straighter smile. Here's how it works:
Step 1 - The Consultation
Book an Invisalign consultation with your BC dentist to determine if Invisalign is right for you. Invisalign can treat orthodontic issues from the most simple misalignments to more severe spacing and bite issues. Your dentist will be able assess your smile to determine your needs.
If you're a good candidate for Invisalign treatment, your dentist will take detailed 3D scans of your teeth and jaw using the iTero Element® scanner in order to map out a custom treatment plan just for you. iTero technology will also allow your dentist to give you a sneak peak at what your smile could look like once your Invisalign treatment is complete.
Step 2 - Start Transforming Your Smile
Once your custom aligners are ready to be picked-up you will meet with your dentist for a fitting. At this appointment your dentist will ensure your aligners fit properly and explain everything you need to know in order to keep your treatment on-track. Your dentist will answer any questions you may have, review your treatment plan, and let you know what you can expect from your Invisalign treatment.
After your dentist has checked the fit of your aligners, it's time for your treatment to begin. Follow the instructions provided by your dentist, and be sure to wear your aligners for a minimum of 20 hours every day. Not following the instructions will delay your treatment progress.
Step 3 - Keep Your Straight New Smile Beautiful
Smile and show the world your straight new smile! After your Invisalign treatment is complete you will have the confidence to smile brightly and openly wherever you go.
Typically, following any type of orthodontic treatment, will need to wear a retainer for awhile. At first you may need to wear a retainer full-time while your teeth settle into their new positions, but then you will gradually move to part-time wear.
