What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an alternative way to straighten your teeth, without traditional braces. It uses a series of clear, removable aligners, which makes them virtually invisible! During treatment, patients simply need to wear each set of clear aligners for about two weeks until their smile is straighter. Plus, the aligners are removable, so patients can remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. At our office, we offer Invisalign Full, Invisalign Teen, Invisalign Lite, and Invisalign Express to help meet each patient’s individual needs.
Who is a Candidate for Invisalign?
Along with creating generally straighter teeth, Invisalign can treat many cases, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Gap teeth
- Open bite
If you are dealing with any of these issues and do not wish to have traditional braces, Invisalign may be for you. The best way to determine which treatment plan is a good fit is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Zwier.
How Does Invisalign Work?
During your first Invisalign appointment, 3D computer imaging technology is used to show you how your teeth will look when you are finished with your treatment. This imaging technology is then used to design an individualized series of aligners to custom fit your teeth.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
A consultation is needed to determine pricing for Invisalign. Pricing may vary depending on geographical location. In Kentwood, Invisalign can cost around $4,500 but may differ depending on your individual case and the options that you choose.
Will Insurance Cover Invisalign?
Any insurance plan that covers orthodontics will cover Invisalign aligners. If you have any questions, contact your insurance company, or give our office a call for more accurate estimates.
