We offer multiple options at Signature Smiles. Depending on your lifestyle and orthodontic needs we can determine if Invisalign® or Six Month Smiles® are a better option for you.
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Conner plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life.
How does Invisalign® work?
The first step in the process is to come in for a consult with Dr. Conner. If Invisalign® is a good option, you will have X-rays, photos and impressions of your teeth taken in order to develop a custom treatment plan.
Based on your individual treatment plan, a series of clear aligners are made just for you. You will then wear a series of aligners until you achieve the results you want.
You can remove them to eat, brush and floss. As you replace the aligners your teeth gradually shift. The entire process start to finish usually takes about a year.
