Invis is … what?
Even if you’ve heard the tagline “Invis is” or had your social media feed invaded by their ads, you might still be wondering what Invis actually is. At Smiles on 34th, we love transforming smiles with Invisalign. We’ll walk you through this revolutionary tooth-straightening process, and tell you how we can help you get the smile you deserve.
Invisalign is a non-invasive, fully removable, and practically invisible way to reshape your smile. More than two decades of innovation have been invested in the process, which uses unique moulded plastic aligners to gently shift teeth into place.
Our Smiles team is trained in using Invisalign technology to help teens and adults perfect their smiles. Gone are the days of metal mouths or pokey wires that are uncomfortable. Invisalign is barely noticeable and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.
More than 13 million users – including 3 million teens! – have achieved the smile of their dreams using Invisalign technology, and we want to help you be next! Here are the top 5 reasons we’d love to consult with you about how Invisalign can change your smile for the better.
1. Getting fitted is easy.
We offer consultations to find out if Invisalign is the right solution for you. You’ll meet with one of our specially-trained dentists who will take a 3D digital scan of your mouth and map out a customized treatment depending on your smile and your goals.
Invisalign is appropriate for a wide range of straightening challenges, from simple to complex. Users are fitted for a customized aligner made from medical-grade thermoplastic polymers. Every week or two, you’ll switch to a new aligner that will continue to shift your teeth into place.
Sometimes, a bit more force is necessary to get the results you want. In these cases, we’ll install SmartForce attachments to your teeth. Your aligners will fit over these attachments, giving them something to grip in order to create sufficient force.
If you lose an aligner, we can work with you to find a solution. You might require a new aligner, or you may be able to move directly to the next aligner in your series.
2. The process is comfortable.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t require uncomfortable wires or brackets. The aligners are virtually invisible.
They’re also removable. This means you won’t be restricted in what you eat or drink and can continue to eat all of your favourite foods. You can also continue to floss and brush as you normally do with no special techniques or products required.
While you may feel a bit of pressure, especially when you switch to a new set of aligners, Invisalign technology is very comfortable. Most people won’t even know you’re wearing them, which helps users to feel more comfortable during the process of having their teeth straightened.
3. It’s affordable and often covered by insurance.
Invisalign can be a much more appealing teeth-straightening process than traditional metal braces, and it actually costs about the same!
If you have private health insurance, the costs may be covered for you. Others might be able to access funds through a Health Care Spending Account. Ask us about how we can help make Invisalign affordable for you and your family.
4. It works quickly.
Sometimes, our clients are discouraged by how long the straightening process takes, but with Invisalign you’ll start seeing results in just a few weeks. The entire process might take as little as six months to achieve the smile you want.
Wear your aligner for 20-22 hours a day, consistently, for best results. A snug fit will ensure your safety even while sleeping. You should only remove your aligner to eat, drink, or clean your teeth.
Regular appointments every 4-6 weeks will enable us to track your process. At the end of your treatment, we might recommend a retainer to protect and maintain your new smile.
5. You deserve a beautiful smile!
Having a great smile can make you feel more confident. It’s also one of the ways we connect with other people. Smiling releases endorphins and serotonin which can boost your mood.
At Smiles on 34th, we’re always committed to providing comfortable, safe, and effective dental treatment for your whole family. From regular check-ups and professional cleanings to restorative treatments and straightening, you’ll be in good hands at Smiles.
