Invisalign in Greensboro, NC
Irvin Orthodontics offers Invisalign® braces to the local residents of Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem, NC, who are looking for a virtually invisible way to improve their smile. Invisalign®, or clear braces, can help improve your smile without sacrificing flexibility or freedom during the process.
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment which is used to straighten teeth without the use of visible, metal braces. This cosmetic dental procedure, often called clear braces or “invisible braces,” is ideal for our patients whom are self-conscious about having traditional braces, but want to improve the appearance of his or her smile.
What Is An Elite Provider? Why Is That Important?
An Elite Provider has treated at least 300 cases with Invisalign® and treats at least 100 cases a year. Dr Alan Irvin is the only Elite Preferred Provider in the Triad – a designation achieved by only 5% of all orthodontists worldwide who use Invisalign®. What does this mean for you as a patient? Experience! Dr Irvin has treated over 500 cases with Invisalign®. This level of experience with the aligners means that you can feel confident in your treatment and get exceptional results from your Invisalign® treatment.
What Should I Reasonably Expect from an Invisalign® Treatment?
At your initial exam, Dr. Irvin will determine if Invisalign® is an effective treatment for you. Once candidacy is determined, we let our technology speak for the results. Using 3D imaging, Dr. Irvin can show you the current position of your teeth, the map for the Invisalign® aligners and what your teeth will look like after treatment. The length of your treatment will depend on the degree of correction needed, but you can expect a straighter, more symmetrical smile throughout treatment.
Are There Advantages to Using Invisalign®?
Invisalign® continues to soar in popularity due to its many advantages over traditional orthodontic treatments, like metal braces. Some of the advantages to this treatment include:
- The ability to remove the retainers for optimal eating and dental hygiene
- No sacrifice of appearance throughout treatment, or “metal mouth” connotation
- Fewer orthodontic visits are required, compared to braces
- No eating restrictions
- Look the same in photographs for special events
- Minimal discomfort or adjusting needed, as there is no metal or wires in the mouth
How Does Invisalign® (Clear Braces) Straighten My Teeth?
Invisalign® works to straighten the teeth using a series of clear aligners, which are specially made to fit your teeth and mouth. The series is created to gradually shift your teeth into place using only the controlled force of the aligners. Your specific series of aligners will be mapped out by our orthodontist, Dr. Alan Irvin, to ensure the effectiveness of your Invisalign® treatment.
What are the Aligner Trays Made of, and How Do They Look?
The aligners are made of thermoplastic material that is resilient, clear and durable. The shape of the aligner is similar to a customized whitening tray from the dental office. When the aligners are in your mouth, they are virtually invisible. This is because the aligners are completely clear and mimic the shiny finish of natural teeth. Each aligner is designed to custom-fit your teeth which is ideal for both comfort and aesthetics throughout your treatment.
