What is Invisalign and How Does it Work?
Your dentist or orthodontist will chart out the series of motions necessary by your teeth to attain a straighter smile using cutting-edge 3D imaging technology. Depending on whether you need top and/or bottom aligners) custom-made plastic aligners will be produced to fit your teeth.
Invisalign progressively and softly adjusts your teeth into the proper position by wearing the clear plastic aligners over your teeth. Unlike braces, Invisalign does not require the use of metal brackets or the tightening of wires.
Every few weeks until your treatment is over, all you have to do is switch out your aligners and you can enjoy the experience of smiling with a mouth full of beautifully straight teeth!

The Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign aligners are a clear alternative to braces that are easy to remove and comfortable to wear. It's simple to maintain your daily routine without Invisalign holding you back or making you self-conscious.
The ease with which you may remove your Invisalign aligners means that there will be no disruption to your daily routine, whether it's for a special occasion or while you are eating, brushing or flossing your teeth.
How long does it take to get Invisalign?
While the length of your Invisalign treatment will vary depending on your specific circumstances, the usual treatment time is between 12 and 14 months. Treatment with Invisalign might take as little as six months or as much as two years. Your Superior Smiles dentist will be able to give you an estimate of how long your treatment will take.
Will Invisalign Treatment be Covered by my Health Insurance?
If your health insurance provides orthodontic treatment, Invisalign should be covered to the same amount as traditional braces would be. Of course, the specific medical benefits to which you are entitled will define the scope of your coverage. If you want to know how much Invisalign treatment your insurance will cover, we recommend checking with your health insurer directly.
