We are a Certified Invisalign Provider
Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted, invisibly! A complimentary consultation with Dr. Van Westen can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
What is Invisalign?
The Invisalign system is a series of clear aligners used to straighten teeth. Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to move your teeth into desired positions.
Invisalign uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to design a series of clear aligners that are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved.
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are clear, making a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.
Invisalign aligners are also removable so you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
You'll spend less time in the doctor's chair and scheduling appointments, and more time out doing the things you love.
Lastly, Invisalign’s technology allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so that you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you place the next set of aligners in the series, your teeth will move little by little until they have straightened to their final positions.
You'll visit us about once every four to six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 6 to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 10 and 30.
Will Invisalign fit my lifestyle?
- Time for a snack? No problem. Take out your aligners to eat or drink whenever you want.
- You can remove your Invisalign aligners, so you can brush and floss regularly, and keep your teeth and gums healthy.
- Be yourself with Invisalign aligners. Since they are clear, you don't have to hide your smile while going through treatment.
- Invisalign appointments work with your schedule. Most visits are in and out, with a quick progress check once every four to six weeks.
