Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners correct smile flaws to offer a straighter, more uniform smile in teens and adults. The customized aligners fit over your existing teeth and gently coax your smile into the desired position.

Brite Dental Spa uses a specialized 3D scanner to get an image of your teeth and design the plan for a straighter, more pleasant smile. After sending this plan to the Invisalign lab, it designs your sets of aligners. The team at Brite Dental Spa then meets with you to ensure they fit properly.

For best results, you wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day, including overnight. You change to a new set of aligners every 1-2 weeks as your teeth change position.

What types of dental problems can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign is effective in treating a number of common smile concerns, including:

  • Overbites, underbites, open bites, and crossbites
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Teeth that need overall straightening

Invisalign works as effectively as braces in most cases. If you aren’t a candidate for Invisalign, talk to the team about clear braces as another discrete option.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign effectively straightens your teeth while offering numerous advantages over braces:

  • Invisalign is virtually invisible, so no one notices them
  • You have no brackets or wires that pinch or break
  • You remove the aligners for eating and drinking, so no meal restrictions
  • You brush and floss normally
  • They’re comfortable when you play sports

If you have a special event, such as prom or a wedding, you can choose not to wear the aligners temporarily, too.

Are Invisalign aligners uncomfortable?

Most people find Invisalign aligners comfortable and convenient to wear. Each time you switch to a new set of aligners, they may feel tight or uncomfortable for the first few days. As your teeth adjust, the aligners feel comfortable again.

When will I see results with Invisalign?

Your smile starts to noticeably change within 2-3 months of wearing the aligners. How long you wear the aligners depends on your personalized treatment plan from Brite Dental Spa, where hundreds of patients receive orthodontic treatment per year. Often, Invisalign works more quickly to correct bite problems and misaligned teeth compared to braces.
