A BEAUTIFUL SMILE WITH
We offer a modern solution of straightening your teeth through clear braces, made specifically to fit your mouth.
Teeth are sometimes in an irregular position since their outgrowth and sometimes they move later in life. With clear braces we can treat various orthodontic irregularities and archive a beautiful smile without the discomfort from having metal on your teeth.
At Yorktown Dental Spa in Houston, we proudly offer Invisalign, a virtually invisible way to achieve a straighter smile without traditional braces. Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, removable aligners, which are custom-designed to gently move your teeth into their desired positions. You’ll wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks, taking them out only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. As you progress through the series, your teeth will gradually shift, week by week, until they reach their final alignment.
With Invisalign, your orthodontist or dentist will typically schedule check-ups once every six weeks to ensure your treatment progresses as planned. The total treatment time typically averages between 9 to 15 months, with an average of 18 to 30 aligners used during treatment. However, the specifics can vary based on individual cases.
The process begins with 3D computer imaging, which allows your Invisalign-trained dentist to create a customized treatment plan. Each aligner in the series is specifically tailored to your needs, and you’ll wear them as your teeth transition to their optimal positions.
Invisalign aligners are clear and nearly invisible, offering a discreet approach to teeth straightening. Though there may be some temporary discomfort as your teeth adjust with each new aligner, it’s a positive sign that the treatment is working. Most people adapt quickly to wearing aligners and experience minimal changes in speech.
For Invisalign to be most effective, it’s recommended to wear the aligners full-time, day and night, removing them only for essential activities like eating and oral care. When it comes to cost, the price of Invisalign treatment is typically within the range of traditional metal braces, which can vary from $3,000 to $5,000 or more, depending on your specific case.
Invisalign has a proven track record of effectively straightening teeth, and it is covered by insurance plans that include orthodontic coverage. At Yorktown Dental Spa, we’re committed to helping you achieve the smile you desire through Invisalign’s innovative and nearly invisible approach to teeth alignment.
