Invisalign at KR Dental

Invisalign is a modern and discreet approach to straightening teeth that uses a series of custom-made aligners created to fit snugly over your teeth. The aligners are made from a clear, lightweight material, offering a comfortable and almost invisible alternative to traditional metal braces. They work by gradually shifting your teeth into their desired positions, leaving you with a straighter and more beautiful smile that you’ve always dreamed of.

The Benefits of Invisalign

While traditional metal braces effectively straighten teeth, they can be uncomfortable and unattractive. With Invisalign, however, you can enjoy these benefits: Woman inserting invisible braces

  • Comfort: Metal braces can cause some discomfort because they use greater pressure to straighten the teeth. Invisalign applies gradual pressure and uses smooth, comfortable aligners versus metal wires and brackets.
  • Discreet appearance: Because the aligners are virtually transparent, most people won’t notice you’re wearing them.
  • Ability to remove: As Invisalign aligners are removable you can eat whatever you want without having to be concerned with food getting stuck in your braces. Plus, brushing and flossing are much easier.

The Invisalign Process

Your Invisalign treatment will begin with an initial consultation with one of our professional dentists  where they will create a 3D image of your teeth in just minutes using our high-tech iTero scanner. This avoids the need for gooey impressions, plus it produces much more accurate results.

Another benefit of our 3D scanner is that it has an Invisalign Outcome Simulator, letting patients see what their results will look like before treatment has even begun, along with how the teeth will gently move into place during each custom aligner stage.

Once your set of custom aligners has been created, you will be able to wear a different set every two weeks to move your teeth into their new positions. You are advised to wear the aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day, only removing them to eat, drink, or brush and floss your teeth.

On average, Invisalign will take just one year to successfully straighten a patient’s teeth (a significantly shorter time frame than the 2-3 years required for traditional metal braces). During your treatment, you will also be required to attend regular dental appointments so we can manage your progress.
