How Invisalign® treatment works

Transforming your smile is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Just three simple steps can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

The Invisalign treatment process

3 simple steps. 1 great smile.

STEP 01

Meet with your doctor

Using a state-of-the-art iTero Element™ scanner, your doctor will quickly and precisely create a detailed, 3D scan of your current smile and map out the custom treatment plan for your new one. So, you’ll know what exactly to expect at every step. Plus, you’ll even see a sneak peek of what your new smile could look like.

STEP 02

Begin the transformation

When you pick up your first set of Invisalign aligners, your doctor will check them to make sure that they fit correctly and are as comfortable as possible. Your doctor will also schedule a series of regular, face-to-face check-ups to give you each new batch of aligners and monitor the progress of your new smile. As part of the process of shifting your teeth during your treatment, you’ll be swapping out your aligners often.

STEP 03

Look after your new smile

Like all teeth straightening treatments, including braces, once you’re done with your Invisalign treatment, you’ll need to wear a retainer to keep your teeth straight. Depending on your doctor, you’ll be offered custom-made Vivera™ retainers that are crafted using the same technology as your Invisalign aligners, or another retainer brand.

What is Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.

Plus Icon FAQ

How much does Invisalign treatment cost?

In most cases, the cost of Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of braces. Your doctor will determine the cost of your treatment based on how complex your case is and how many aligners you need. There are several options to make Invisalign treatment more affordable for you, from using insurance and tax-free dollars to a monthly payment plan.

Plus Icon FAQ

How is Invisalign treatment different to other teeth straightening options?

Invisalign clear aligners are made from SmartTrack proprietary material to deliver more predictable tooth movements.2 Unlike most other clear aligners and retainers, Invisalign aligners and retainers are trimmed based on each patient’s gum line to provide optimal patient comfort and aesthetics.
