Invisalign® in Warren, MI
Straighten Your Smile Discreetly
Studies have proved that smiling can make you feel happier. When you’re proud of your smile, you’ll show it off more often, which radiates confidence. On the other hand, if you’re somewhat ashamed of your teeth, you might feel more compelled to hold back and avoid smiling big.
Not everyone is born with a perfect smile, and achieving straight teeth can be a grueling task. The metal brackets and wires that come with braces can be damaging to your self-image and your lifestyle. Luckily, Invisalign has made straightening your smile more convenient than ever. You can eat whatever you like and the clear aligners are practically invisible to those around you.
The Invisalign Advantage
Unlike braces which are difficult to clean, you’ll have no problem keeping up with your oral hygiene routine with removable trays. Invisalign can fix a variety of orthodontic problems while you continue to maintain optimal oral health, such as:
The Process to a Straight Smile With Invisalign
The path to a perfect smile is simple and can be completed in four steps, including:
Initial Consultation – Dr. Moureiden will examine your oral health to ensure you’re an excellent candidate for Invisalign. During this appointment, she may take images and impressions to create a customized treatment plan.
Your Aligners – Invisalign will send you your first set of aligners, which will gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. About every two weeks you’ll receive a new batch of trays that will continueto move your teeth until you’ve achieved your smile goals. Dr. Moureiden suggests wearing your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day.
Your Progress – About every four weeks you’ll schedule appointments to see Dr. Moureiden so she can monitor your progress and ensure you’re on track with your projected treatment time.
Your New Smile – Before long, you’ll be ready to show off your new smile.
