Invisalign® & Clear Aligners in Greenville

Invisalign® and Clear Aligners

Discreetly straighten crooked teeth with Invisalign!

You may be contemplating scheduling an appointment with an orthodontist if your teeth are not straight or if you notice gaps or spaces between teeth. However, many patients we’ve worked with in the past are hesitant to wear traditional metal braces and prefer an alternative that is more under the radar. Fortunately, Invisalign® is a realistic alternative that does not require you to visit an orthodontist. These soft, nearly transparent aligner trays are practically invisible to the human eye and can be used to deal with various teeth straightening issues. As the leading Invisalign® dentist in Greenville, Dr. Natasja Bevans and her team can create a treatment plan catered to your specific needs.

Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment option that corrects teeth that are misaligned, overlapped, gapped teeth, and other types of misalignment issues. Whereas traditional braces adds pressure on teeth using wires and metal brackets, Invisalign® utilizes a series of transparent, plastic aligner trays. Aligners are expected to be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day and should only be discarded while eating, brushing, or flossing your teeth. Many Invisalign® patients often remove their aligners on special occasions. As long as you adhere to wearing your aligners for at least 20 hours per day,  Invisalign® will straighten your teeth.

You may qualify for Invisalign® if you are struggling with:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite

Please note that Invisalign® may not be for everyone. Traditional braces could be appropriate for more serious bite-related problems. We will examine your teeth thoroughly to decide if you need Invisalign® or traditional braces. Invisalign® features smooth, transparent aligners that are virtually invisible.

Teens and adults are growing more interested in Invisalign. It has many significant benefits over conventional braces, including:

  • Comfort: Metal wires and brackets can cause discomfort to your cheeks, gums, and lips. Braces are far more uncomfortable to wear than flat Invisalign® retainers.
  • Shorter Timeline: While the treatment duration varies for each patient, Invisalign® will usually realign the bite in around a year. Braces will take upwards of 18 to 24 months to complete.
  • Aesthetics: Aligners are composed of specialized SmartTrack® material that is almost invisible. As a result, you will never feel self-conscious during treatment. You will really look healthier before and after treatment with Invisalign!
  • Predictability: During the preparation period, treatment is digitally laid out. Patients can get a sneak peek of how their teeth will look and be reassured in their decision to use Invisalign® for straightening their teeth.
  • Better Health: Straight teeth are easier to brush than crooked, overlapping, or misaligned teeth. Dental hygiene is essential to your overall health. As a result, you will be able to sustain a healthy oral hygiene regimen and experience improved oral health after your treatment.
  • No Dietary Restrictions: Braces make it difficult to consume certain foods, which can trigger wires and brackets to break. Seeing as Invisalign® aligners are removable, you can drink anything you like during care.  You can also integrate Invisalign® with other cosmetic dentistry techniques for an even more drastic transition, such as teeth whitening, dental fillings, or bonding.

An initial appointment is the first stage of your treatment. We will capture 3-D photos of your smile with a scanner and use them to plan your treatment. Dr. Bevans can plan your teeth’s gradual activity to ensure proper outcomes. She will then send your smile scans to the Invisalign® lab, where they will be used to construct your customized aligners.

Many patients will progress from one set of Invisalign® aligners to the next every few weeks, and they will need anywhere between 18 and 30 aligners. You must schedule follow-up appointments with our office during treatment to track your progress and make changes if necessary.

Invisalign® is a fantastic orthodontist solution for many patients. If you are ready to transform the appearance of your smile, find out how you can benefit from Invisalign® teeth straightening.
