Invisalign® in West Chester, PA

If you’re ready for a smile makeover, you have more options today than ever. For example, if your teeth are crowded, crooked, or otherwise misaligned, you don’t have to resort to wearing a mouth full of metal. The Invisalign® aligner tray system can straighten your teeth discreetly. In fact, no one even has to know.

How Can Invisalign Trays Correct My Smile?

The Invisalign system uses a series of fitted plastic trays to move your teeth by small increments over a period of months. Each set is worn for approximately two weeks before progressing to the next. You will remove the trays before eating or cleaning your teeth. Aligners can correct a wide variety of mild and moderate orthodontic conditions discreetly and efficiently.

Does Invisalign Cost a Lot?

Your total Invisalign cost is directly related to the extent of treatment needed to reposition your teeth. For some patients, the Invisalign treatment cost is no higher than the cost of metal braces. Patients with severe tooth and jaw alignment problems will usually pay a higher price for treatment. The only way to get a precise estimate of your treatment cost is to obtain a professional evaluation. We can connect you with skilled dentists who provide Invisalign in West Chester, so give us a call to set up your consultation.

Do Insurance Plans Cover Invisalign?

Many do and Invisalign insurance coverage makes paying for your treatment much easier. Contact your insurance provider to determine the extent of your coverage. If you feel that Invisalign cost will still be a strain on your budget, ask us about our flexible payment plans.

What Is the Typical Duration of Aligner Treatment?

Invisalign treatment time is different for everyone, but some general rules apply. Most adults can expect their treatment to last between 10 months and two years. On average, an adult with common orthodontic conditions can be successfully treated in about one year’s time.

Invisalign Dentists: Training and Talent Required

Invisalign dentists are general dentists and orthodontists who have been trained to use the invisible aligner system to treat common orthodontic problems. Advanced training and experience ensures that our dentists can help you get the best results in the least amount of time.

Invisalign vs Braces: Making the Call

When it’s down to Invisalign vs braces, the one with the best smile during treatment wins. For most patients with minor or moderate orthodontic problems, metal braces and plastic aligners can both produce the same results. For obvious reasons, the aligner trays are the preferable choice for aesthetics. Patients with severe disorders or extensive dental disease may get better results from traditional treatment than from aligners, so their dentists will encourage them to stick with traditional treatment approaches.

Beyond Aesthetics: More Benefits of Invisalign

A metal-free appearance during treatment is not the only perk of choosing aligner trays. Here are a few more to consider:

  • Limited orthodontic visits
  • Better access to your teeth when brushing or flossing
  • An unrestricted diet
  • Trays are removable at will
  • No irritating metal components to injure your mouth

Can Anyone Get Invisalign?

Aligner trays work best for adults and those with moderate or minor spacing, crowding, and bite problems. Children and patients with extensive dental disease, wide gaps between teeth or severe tooth rotation are not ideal candidates for treatment. Because everyone is unique, it’s best to consult a professional dentist to determine whether aligner trays will work for you.

Keeping Your New Smile in Place after Invisalign Treatment

After you’ve removed your last set of aligners, you’ll want to be sure that your teeth stay in their new positions. Invisalign retainers can help. Your dentist may tell you to wear them while you sleep or at certain other times.

Finding affordable Invisalign in West Chester is just a call or email away. Let us help you achieve the smile of your dreams by connecting you with one of our experienced Invisalign dentists.
