Frequently Asked Questions
What is Invisalign® treatment?
Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. There are no brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces. Most low cost orthodontics providers don't even offer Invisalign. They use cheap, less efficient aligner material.
Is Invisalign treatment right for me?
Yes! Invisalign treatment can be a great solution for both adults and teens looking for a virtually invisible method to improve their smile. Our innovations and technological advancements make it possible to fix nearly all teeth-straightening and bite issues, from simple to complex — all little interruption to your busy life. And, thanks to a discreet blue dot on the outside of teen aligners, parents can be sure their child is wearing their clear aligners enough.
What is the treatment process?
Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation with an Invisalign-trained technician. Our award-winning Invisalign doctor will evaluate your smile and then map out a precise, customized digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your smile.
Once you approve your plan, your unique aligners will be created. You will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by your doctor. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, until you reach your beautiful new smile.
How do I get started with Invisalign treatment?
Our friendly squad is here to help make getting started with Invisalign treatment even easier. Simply schedule a consultation, and we'll answer your questions and set up a scan of your teeth.
Can I go to any dentist or orthodontist for Invisalign treatment?
Yes, but why would you want to? Many orthodontists and dentists are Invisalign-trained doctors, but very few are Invisalign experts. Doctors offering Invisalign must have specialized training to use aligners effectively. The expertise comes from doing cases over time. My Virtual Smile is managed by the #1 top Invisalign provider with thousands of successful cases under his belt.
Attachment -- What are they and why would I need them for my Invisalign treatment?
Your Invisalign treatment may require SmartForce® attachments, small tooth-colored shapes that are attached to your teeth.
These shapes serve as handles, giving the aligners something to gently push on in order to move your teeth with the right amount of force, and are what make complex tooth movements possible without braces. Invisalign clear aligners fit smoothly and tightly around them, so they’re barely noticeable.
How often will I have progress appointments?
Our technician will schedule a handful of brief appointments, usually about once every four to six weeks. The goal of these visits is to ensure your Invisalign treatment is progressing as planned.
How is Invisalign treatment different than other teeth straightening options?
Invisalign clear aligners are made from patented SmartTrack material which moves teeth comfortably and predictably. Most competitive, online, lower cost orthodontic companies use cheap, less efficient aligner material.
