If you are going to keep the teeth you already have for the rest of your life, it’s nice to make them look as good as they possibly can! Dentistry is no longer limited to fixing or repairing broken or decayed teeth. Modern materials are so life-like that we can actually improve the appearance of your teeth. Every smile is a good one, but if you’ve ever been unsatisfied with your smile, there are a number of options available to enhance the look of the teeth.
In some cases, however, cosmetic dentistry can have a tremendous impact on tooth longevity. Invisalign is an ideal standin for moving your teeth, and when we get your bit to fit perfectly, it decreases the wear inside your mouth tremendously. Tight teeth don’t get food stuck between them and modern materials are less subject to decay. The list goes on, but cosmetic improvements can enhance far more than just the look of your smile!
We like Invisalign because it’s both cosmetic as well as preventative. In many cases, it prevents the need for restorative work and makes achieving straight teeth a much simpler process.
How it works
Meet with your doctor and get a sneak peek at your new smile using the iTero Element® scanner. Your Biddeford Saco Dental Associates Doctor can take a fast and precise 3D digital scan of your teeth and map out a custom treatment plan just for you.
Start transforming your smile right from your first fitting. This is a key step in your success. your doctor will ensure your aligners fit well, answer your questions, and let you know what to expect. Start wearing your aligners: when you pick up your first custom aligners, your doctor will examine your smile, ensuring our high standards are met. Regular doctor check-ins: you’ll likely schedule face-to-face check-ups every 6-8 weeks to check your progress and pick up the next batch of aligners. Your routine, uninterrupted: your Invisalign aligners are virtually transparent and easy to take out, so you can keep brushing and eating as you normally would.
Depending on the complexity of your case, you could complete your treatment in as little as 6 months.2 but you’ll start seeing results in a matter of weeks. Treatment times vary depending on individual patient needs and must be determined by your doctor.
