We understand the importance of a straight, confident smile. If you’re looking for a discreet and effective way to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is an excellent option. Our skilled dental professionals, including Dr. Nathan Dustin and Dr. Dillon Moya, are dedicated to helping you achieve your desired smile. With Invisalign, you can enjoy a more aligned, beautiful smile without the hassle of traditional metal braces in Portland, Oregon.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move your teeth into their desired positions gradually. These custom-made aligners are made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic material virtually invisible when worn. Invisalign offers a discreet alternative to traditional braces, allowing you to straighten your teeth without drawing attention to the fact that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are transparent, making them virtually invisible when worn. This transparency means you can straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious about your appearance.
Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic, eliminating the discomfort and irritation often associated with metal braces. They are also removable, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and easily maintain your oral hygiene routine.
Before starting your Invisalign journey, our skilled dentists will conduct a comprehensive examination to determine if Invisalign is right for you. They will then create a personalized treatment plan addressing your orthodontic needs and goals.
With advanced technology, we can show you a 3D virtual representation of your treatment plan, allowing you to see how your teeth gradually shift and your smile transforms over time.
Invisalign's advanced software enables precise planning, ensuring that each aligner moves your teeth gradually and efficiently. This results in more accurate and predictable treatment outcomes.
The Invisalign Process
Your journey to a straighter smile begins with a consultation at Portland Smile Design. One of our skilled dentists will evaluate your teeth, discuss your goals, and determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you. We will take a digital scan of your teeth and show you an on the spot computer simulation to preview the final results.
If Invisalign suits your orthodontic needs, our dentists will take digital impressions, photographs, and X-rays of your teeth. We will use these images to create a customized treatment plan.
Using the treatment plan, a series of custom-made aligners will be created specifically for you. Each set of aligners is designed to gently pressure your teeth to shift them into the desired positions gradually.
Once your aligners are ready, you will wear them as your dentist directs. It's essential to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
You will visit our dental practice periodically, typically every few weeks, for progress checks and to receive your new aligners. Each new aligner will continue the progression of your tooth movements.
Once you have worn all the aligners in your series, your treatment is complete. Our dentists will evaluate your progress and discuss post-treatment retention options, such as retainers, to maintain the alignment of your newly straightened smile.
