Wearing braces doesn’t have to be publicized to everyone. Get discreet orthodontic treatment through clear braces.

You may already be familiar with Invisalign treatment. After all, it’s advertised on TV and in multiple magazines. Invisalign has become clear bracespopular because of all the benefits it offers those who want to get a straighter smile. Say goodbye to metal mouth and say hello to the nearly invisible way to get a more attractive smile when you get Invisalign from our Bedford, TX family dentist Dr. Phu Le.

So, how exactly do you get clear braces?

Here are the steps involved in getting Invisalign treatment and making sure this is the right option for your smile:

  • Talk to our Bedford dentist: In order to know that Invisalign is right for you, you will need to schedule a consultation with us. We will sit down with you to see what issues you want to correct and what you are hoping to achieve through your orthodontic treatment. Then we will examine your smile to make sure that Invisalign is the best choice. We will also address any treatment questions you may have.
  • A treatment plan is created: Once we deem you an appropriate candidate for clear braces we will take X-rays and impressions of your teeth from which 3D images are made. From these images, we can create a detailed treatment plan that includes what teeth will need to be moved and exactly how much. We can also tell you how long your treatment will most likely be.
  • You’ll receive your aligners: Once we send these impressions and treatment plan to an Invisalign lab they will get to work making your aligners. Once they have sent your aligners to us you will come back in for your first Invisalign fitting. These aligners are worn between 20-22 hours each day for two weeks before being swapped out with the next aligners in your treatment plan. During your treatment, you’ll also visit us every 4-6 weeks to make sure everything is going well.
  • Achieve your perfect smile: while everyone’s length of treatment will be different, the average adult gets a straighter smile through Invisalign in about one year. The length of treatment for teens, on the other hand, is comparable to traditional braces (about 1 ½ to 2 years). After your treatment is over you will most likely need to wear retainers to help maintain your straighter smile.
