Lake Michigan Dental is a certified Invisalign provider. This means that we are able to use Invisalign for our patients who would like to correct misaligned teeth.
If you have always wanted a straighter smile, you may want to ask one of our Grand Rapids Invisalign dentists if Invisalign clear aligners are the right choice for your smile.
Who is Invisalign for?
Since Invisalign clear aligners can be taken out, the patient must be disciplined enough to keep wearing them each day. If you have always felt self-conscious about your smile, now may be the time to ask your dentist about Invisalign treatment. Unlike braces, Invisalign doesn’t require as much time in the dentist’s chair getting adjustments.
Like the name suggests, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. This is great for patients who want to improve the appearance of their smile without unsightly metal braces. Many of our adult patients appreciate the subtlety of Invisalign for when they go to work or meet with friends. Since you take out the aligners during meal times, you are also able to eat and drink whatever you like during treatment.
How does Invisalign work?
One of our Grand Rapids cosmetic dentists will come up with a custom treatment plan. During the course of your treatment, you will wear several different sets of aligners (between 18 and 30), one for each phase. Each set of aligners will only be worn for about two weeks before being replaced with a slightly different set of aligners designed to move your teeth little by little.
You will need to come to our office every six weeks during treatment so your dentist can check on your progress. The average Invisalign treatment takes between 9 and 15 months.
The Invisalign® dentists in Grand Rapids at Lake Michigan Dental will be able to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. To learn more about Invisalign and other cosmetic dentistry services, give us a call at (616) 453-8211.
