Consultation with Dr. Lee
As a certified Invisalign specialist, Dr. Lee will examine your mouth and determine if you’re a candidate for Invisalign. She’ll address all of your questions and concerns and let you know exactly what to expect.
Create a Digital 3-D Image of Your Teeth
This is the fun part! Dr. Lee will take pictures and x-rays, which allows Invisalign to make a 3-D image of your teeth. Dr. Lee then uses this rendering to prescribe your exact teeth movements to help you get the perfect smile.
Pick Up Your Custom Aligners
The work begins and you’re on your way to seeing results. You’ll receive your series of clear aligners based on your individual treatment plan. The aligners are made of BPA-free, smooth plastic and you’ll wear them for 20 to 22 hours per day.
Pop in New Aligners Every Two Weeks
Every one to two weeks you’ll exchange your aligners for a fresh, new set. As you continue through the series of aligners, your teeth will gradually straighten. You’ll only need to visit Dr. Lee approximately every six weeks so she can make sure your treatment is on track.
The moment of truth has arrived! Once you’ve made it through all of your aligners, you’ll take off the last set to reveal straight teeth. Everyone is different but treatment can run anywhere from six months to the same as traditional braces.
