Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to correct:
- Gaps between your teeth
- Crowding of your teeth
- Badly aligned bite
Invisalign is a very comfortable, modern way to straighten your teeth. You just wear a set of clear plastic appliances, called aligners. That’s it, no uncomfortable metal brackets or wires! Using their considerable skill and with the help of 3-D imaging, the dentists at Nik Family and Cosmetic Dentistry will create a set of custom aligners just for you.
You will wear this first set of comfortable plastic aligners for 2 weeks, and then every 2 weeks you will replace them with a new set of aligners. You will see the dentist every 6 weeks until your treatment is complete and your teeth are straight. The entire process takes 9 to 15 months.
There are many advantages of Invisalign over conventional metal braces. Invisalign is:
- Much more comfortable
