There are few things as damaging to self-esteem as a crooked smile. When people envision the perfect image of themselves, rarely does it include teeth that are out of place. Thankfully, Las Vegas residents have Invisalign as an option. Dr. Rick has been treating patients with Invisalign for a number of years and has helped people of all ages gain a more confident smile.
In addition to creating straighter smiles, Invisalign’s main benefit is that the equipment is not easily visible while the patient is wearing it. Traditional braces are often associated with a highly visible wire, brackets, and rubber bands. Invisalign, however, is often applauded because it is made up of a clear material that slides over your teeth and is barely visible.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is effective for the same reasons that traditional braces are effective. Both gradually move your teeth into a more aesthetic lineup. However, a key difference is that Invisalign is a series of molds made for your teeth that gradually straighten your smile where traditional braces require occasional tightening procedures to push the teeth into alignment.
What is the Invisalign process?
If you’re interested in learning how the Invisalign process works, it’s actually pretty simple!
The first step is a complimentary consultation. This can be easily scheduled by visiting our contact us page or calling the office.
After the decision for Invisalign is taken, Dr. Rick will take a mold of your teeth. This mold will be processed to create a 3D model that will then be used as a baseline for your upcoming trays. These trays and their gradual steps will be what lead to your straighter smile.
Every two weeks, you will get a new tray that will gradually move your teeth to where they should be. Just like that, you will have a straighter and more confident smile.
