WE ARE A CERTIFIED INVISALIGN PROVIDER
Consider Invisalign treatment to straighten your teeth without braces. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Shapiro can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
WHAT IS IT?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective.
WHY WOULD I WANT THEM?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. The aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in our office getting adjustments.
Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You wear each set of aligners for about one week, and remove them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions.
You’ll visit us about once every 8-10 weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 10 to 20 months, but will vary from case to case.
