Do you hide your smile every time someone takes out their phone in fear of an impromptu photo? You may have even perfected the closed smile to disguise crooked or misaligned teeth. You’ve wanted to do something about you smile for a long time, but the thought of getting braces sets you on edge. Then you see an ad about these “invisible” aligners that can straighten your teeth. It might seem too good to be true, and you’re starting to wonder how it all works.
The truth is, Invisalign might be what you need to get your smile from closed to open in every picture you take. They’re clear, involve fewer visits to the dentist, and even cost less. But how does Invisalign work, and can they actually straighten your teeth?
Breaking the Mold
The journey with Invisalign starts at the dentist’s office. Your dentist will either take a mold of your teeth or use a special scanner to get a 3D image of your mouth, molar to molar. At Dental Of Clementon, we know that a lot of people dislike having a mold taken of their teeth, but our staff is dedicated to making every Invisalign experience as comfortable as possible.
A Personalized Invisalign Treatment Plan
Once the mold or 3D scan is completed, your dentist will create a customized treatment plan. This plan is a roadmap that takes your teeth from their current position to a beautiful and straight smile. You’ll be able to see a preview of what your smile will look like when your treatment is over. Your dentist will also go over taking care of your aligners, how often you need to wear them, and if you need any additional treatment options, such as attachments.
A Beautiful Smile Ahead
After you agree to your personalized plan, you’ll pick up your aligners from your dentist’s office throughout the course of your treatment. Although every individual treatment plan is different, they all end up the same: with a beautiful smile!
