Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart, or have shifted, Invisalign may be right for you.
How does Invisalign work?
When you’re ready to create your smile with Invisalign, we will start a record collection which is a digital scan, photos, and x-rays. We will show you a simulation of what your new smile will look like on that day.
Once all records are completed, Dr. Tehrani will look at all your data and create your new smile using his state-of-the-art Invisalign software. He will then have Invisalign fabricate your aligners – clear trays – and have them shipped back to our office. This fabrication process can take three to four weeks. Once we receive your aligners, we will call you into the office to start your journey into the smile you’ve always wanted. You’ll wear trays 24 out of 24 hours a day taking them out only to brush and floss your teeth.
Each patient’s needs are unique. Dr. Tehrani will customize his treatment to your specific needs. Some patients need IPR polishing between certain teeth to create extremely small amounts of space to un-crowd some teeth and help them to fit and look better. Some patients will need attachments – tooth-colored buttons placed on teeth at the beginning and polished off at the end of treatment. They help move your teeth more reliably and efficiently. Doctor Tehrani’s Invisalign experience helps him minimize the number of visits you’ll need while maximizing your result.
So, to get you going we will give you your aligners to start wearing on specific dates we will do online virtual checkup appointments with you to make sure you are moving along properly. While you are more than welcome to come into the office to visit Doctor Tehrani and his terrific team, it just isn’t necessarily to save you a lot of time and effort. Simply we make things easier, more effective, and extremely efficient. The only thing you really need to do is wear the aligners and we will do everything else.
We don’t stop until you are happy. When you’re happy with your new smile we will make you upper and lower retainers that look like your aligners. You must wear your retainers every night to keep your teeth where you are happy. They also work great to protect your teeth from grinding and clenching, and they can be used for professional whitening. Retainers will stretch or wear down over time research has shown that you should get retainers a minimum of every two years to prevent shifting, but experience has shown that some people go through retainers a lot faster than others, so in the future, you can easily purchase additional retainers from us.
The most common question we get is how can doctor Tehrani provide so much more than anyone else while costing so much less? Dr. Tehrani is part of a specialized highly trained Invisalign group that has also given him access to an incredible rate that he chooses to pass on to his patients. We offer convenient virtual online appointments to get you started. So the question is: Are you ready to start fixing your smile today?
