With a Smile Assessment at Aqua Dental Wellness, we can show you what your smile will look like before you begin your Invisalign journey.
We know starting the journey to straighter teeth can make some people anxious. It can be tough to make such a big decision without knowing what the final outcome will look like. That’s why we begin the process with a special consultation. This consultation allows you to see a 3D image of your teeth in just a matter of minutes. We are able to do this with the help of our iTero scanner, a digital scanner made by the same company that invented Invisalign clear aligners.
The iTero scanner is an incredibly accurate scanner that takes 3D images of your teeth. You know what that means? No need for those yucky, goopy impressions. After we get the image of your teeth, we can accurately show you what your teeth will look like when your treatment is complete.
Once we are done with the consult and have taken digital impressions of your teeth, we will have a series of clear aligners manufactured especially for you. The process is mapped out in advance by your dentist, specifically for your situation. The amount of aligners you receive depends on the amount of shifting your teeth need in order to become straight.
When your aligners are placed on the teeth, they cause them to gradually shift from their current position. In about two weeks' time, you will begin using the next set of aligners. This will continue until your teeth are in their desired position.
The best part about Invisalign aligners is that they are much more discreet than traditional braces. You can continue to eat the food you love and still end with great results.
