Invisalign: The Clear Aligners
What Is Invisalign
Invisalign is a treatment that allows you to have straight teeth without the look of metal braces. The aligners basically look like a clear plastic retainer, and you can remove them anytime you want. Our dentist at Neibauer Dental Care will tell you exactly how long you must keep them on every day after assessing the structure and shape of your teeth. Invisalign can give visible results in as little as six weeks, but the duration can vary depending on how much your teeth need work.
How Does It Work
Invisalign is basically a treatment involving a series of plastic shells that tightly fit around your teeth. It is clear and transparent and customized for your teeth structure. Once you have decided to get Invisalign, our dentist will take an impression of your teeth. This impression is used to create a 3D plaster model of your teeth, which will replicate the structure of your teeth.
You will have to most likely change your aligners every few weeks. This ensures that by the end of your treatment plan, you achieve a perfectly straight and healthy smile.
