Invisalign

Your dental team here at Michigan Smile Team is proud to offer the revolutionary Invisalign® system for correcting a variety of orthodontic problems such as misalignment, crowding, or gaps in teeth. Invisalign®’s clear dental trays are virtually invisible, so you can maintain your professional appearance while creating the smile you’ve always dreamed about.

The Invisalign® system utilizes a series of clear aligners that are customized to fit your unique oral profile and smile goals. As you progress through a series of aligners, your teeth gradually shift into their optimal position for proper function and appearance. Here at Michigan Smile Team, we use the iTero digital 3D scanner to produce ultra-high resolution 3D images of your upper and lower dental arches in just a matter of minutes. With the state-of-the-art iTero scanner, you can compare the before and after versions of your teeth and see the dramatic orthodontic correction that Invisalign® is able to produce just for you.

Does Invisalign® work?

The science behind Invisalign® is based on over twenty years of research and the results of more than six million treatments (with a user-reported satisfaction rate of 96%). The innovative SmartTrack material is more comfortable and provides a better fit than other alternatives to Invisalign®. Invisalign® produces a higher success rate because the material used to make the clear aligners allows for more frequent wear, which means faster results. The soft, clear SmartTrack material is comfortable and virtually invisible, which means patients wear their

clear aligners more regularly and see results up to 50 percent faster than other methods.  Invisalign® makes this easier than ever before.

Will Invisalign® work for me?

Our dentist will take the time to discuss your particular treatment options with consideration for your lifestyle, budget, and personal goals for your best dental health.  We will present you with Invisalign® pros and cons as they apply to your specific situation and our iTero scanner can show you a detailed rendering of your smile before and after the Invisalign® treatment.

Invisalign® may be right for you if you suffer from any of the following orthodontic problems:

  • Overbite

  • Underbite

  • Crossbite

  • Gaps between teeth

  • Crowded teeth

  • Open bite

  • Misaligned teeth

How much does Invisalign® cost?
The price of Invisalign® varies according to your unique needs, goals, and expectations.  After your consultation, we will determine the cost of Invisalign® for you and how this may be affected by other factors such as your dental insurance plan or health savings account (HSA).  In general, Invisalign® has proven to be a cost-effective alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment because you make far fewer office visits and it doesn’t require the constant maintenance necessary for metal braces.

How long does Invisalign® take?
Similar to cost, treatment duration is different for everyone.  You can see results in as little as six months. Most treatments are completed between 12 to 18 months. Since your Invisalign® aligner trays are made from SmartTrack material, they are more comfortable than other alternatives – which means you are able to wear them without pain for longer periods, so they are able to get the job done in half the time required by other treatments.  Also, the superior precision of iTero 3D imaging for tray fabrication enables you to switch aligners every week rather than the standard schedule of wearing an aligner for two weeks.  Since each new aligner tray represents a new shift for your teeth toward their optimal position, an accelerated schedule means faster progress than the seemingly similar systems offered by Invisalign®’s competitors.
