Very Orthodontics provides the most state-of-the-art procedures available, ensuring optimal results for our patients. We also offer Invisalign® as an alternative to braces. Invisalign® is a revolutionary system that utilizes 3-D computer graphics to design and manufacture customized clear appliances called “Aligners.” Invisalign® appliances are virtually undetectable, easy to use, and comfortable to wear.
Invisalign®, which is available for both teens and adults, straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. They gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life.
As a teen, you’re busy- from sports to dances to studying, you are always on the go and want to look your best! That’s why Invisalign is such a great option for teens who want to perfect their smile- invisible aligners straighten your smile up to 2x as fast as braces, they’re more comfortable, and the best part? No one will even be able to tell you are wearing them!
Progress is monitored with blue compliance indicator dots that fade over time to make sure you know that you are wearing your aligners as prescribed, and aligners are easily removed for brushing, flossing, eating, & special events as needed. With Invisalign, you can continue to enjoy all the foods, beverages, & and activities that you love! You have enough stressors in your life – Invisalign prevents your smile from being one of them!
Dr. Very will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan. We will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly.
Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break, sending you to your doctor for an emergency visit.
Unlike other brands, Invisalign clear aligners are made from patented SmartTrack material, which is more comfortable and provides a better fit.1 Invisalign aligners are also trimmed based on your gum line for comfort and appearance. As the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, we have successfully improved over 5 million smiles, including 1 million teen smiles.
Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation with Dr. Very, who will evaluate your smile and then map out a precise, customized digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your smile.
Once you approve your plan, your unique aligners will be created. You will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by your doctor. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, until you reach your beautiful new smile.
The length of treatment depends on multiple factors, like how complex your case is and how often you wear your aligners. Dr. Very will determine exactly how long your treatment will take based on your specific needs. On average, Invisalign treatment time is 12 to 18 months, though you can start seeing results in a matter of weeks.
In most cases, the cost of Invisalign treatment is similar to the cost of braces. Dr. Very will determine the cost of your treatment based on how complex your case is and how many aligners you need.
Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign treatment the same way they cover braces. Your insurance may pay for a certain percentage of your Invisalign treatment, or it may pay for a certain dollar amount.
We offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans, which allow you to make small payments through the course of your Invisalign treatment rather than all at once.
