One of the fastest growing aspects of dentistry is the area of digital dentistry, which uses virtual images to alter a smile. Invisalign® is a technology that we have used for nearly 20 years with continual improvement; throughout this time, Invisalign has allowed our Silver Tier Invisalign Provider, Dr. Dennis Jenkins, to improve smiles simply by moving the otherwise attractive teeth into their proper positions. The result is a beautiful smile involving one’s natural teeth.
Invisalign is oftentimes the perfect option for adults who are looking for a more discreet orthodontic alternative to braces with brackets and wires.
Treatment times usually range from 6 months to a year, although more extensive cases will require more time. To plan your treatment, we utilize iTero® digital scanning to take digital impressions of your smile. No traditional impressions are required. These digital impressions aid in the creation of your customized clear aligners. By using clear, custom appliances that are specifically programmed to apply pressure points to the teeth, our dentist plans precise movements and can help you achieve your ideal smile over increments of two-week time periods. Aligners are changed every two weeks, usually requiring visits to Designing Smiles PSC in 6-week intervals. Most often, the treatment is completed so discretely that friends, family, and co workers are unaware that the treatment is going on, except to notice the improvements to the smile.
Indications for Invisalign:
- Crowded teeth
- Smiles with spaces
- Mild to moderate bite discrepancies
