We’re Your Best Provider of Invisalign® in NC
One of the main worries people have with dental braces is the aesthetic impact of the metalwork on their smiles. It’s understandable to be concerned about how we look, right? It sure is, even for us here at the CarolinasDentist team. Especially for adults, the prospect of wearing unattractive metal braces for long periods of time can be very discouraging. The beauty of Invisalign® is an almost invisible aligning system that helps straighten teeth fast and contains no metal.
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of custom-made aligning trays. Your dentist will make changes to the trays every few weeks to fit the new tooth configuration. Since Invisalign reduces the visual impact, the aligning trays can be temporarily removed for those all-important occasions. This means that the treatment duration is patient-controlled. A great number of people report complete satisfaction with both the Invisalign treatment and the stunning results.
Invisalign & Orthodontics
Unfortunately, not everyone has the straight, confident smile they want. But at CarolinasDentist, we firmly believe that everyone deserves to have one. So, if you’re tired of dealing with a crooked or gapped smile, we can help straighten your teeth with orthodontics. And overall, it’s not just about the cosmetic benefits—straight teeth can also help you avoid a number of dental issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and difficulty chewing.
Orthodontics can fix:
Invisalign is a teeth-straightening method using a series of clear, custom-made aligners. That’s right—no metal or wires involved! The aligners blend in with your teeth so they’re barely noticeable, and since they’re made of smooth, BPA-free plastic, they won’t irritate your cheeks or gums. Both teenagers and adults can use Invisalign to correct the alignment of their teeth.
CarolinasDentist is proud to be the region’s largest provider of Invisalign. We have helped many patients achieve the smiles they’ve always dreamed about with these subtle, clear aligners. During just one visit to our office, we use our high-tech iTero digital scanner to preview your likely results with Invisalign. You’ll be able to see the dramatic transformation for yourself before even beginning!
It all begins with mapping your treatment plan. We take digital impressions of your teeth to plan how to get your teeth from their current position to your smile goal. Then, we send the impressions off to be made into your custom aligners. Every two weeks, you’ll pop in a new set of aligners, each one getting you closer and closer to your end results. You’ll only have to come in for a quick check-in about every six weeks so we can make sure everything is going smoothly and we can hand off your next few sets.
Typically, patients use Invisalign for about a year. But treatment length is often determined on a case-by-case basis. Two big factors in how long your treatment takes are, 1) How much your teeth need to be moved, and 2) How closely you adhere to the amount of time you’re supposed to wear the aligners each day.
Invisalign is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. The price also depends on how complex your case is. If you’re at all concerned about whether or not you can afford Invisalign treatment, please let us know. CarolinasDentist has various financial options available, including an in-house dental plan and financing, to make it easier for patients to achieve their dream smiles. Remember, that’s where we want you to end up!
