Straighten Your Smile With Invisalign in Sterling Heights

When you want to make a good first impression, you want to share your smile. If you are uncomfortable with your smile, consider getting your teeth in line with Invisalign. In Sterling Heights, we’ve helped many patients:

  • Correct crooked teeth

Take the clear path to a better smile. Talk to Dr. Laura Pepa or Dr. Frank Rosner at Laser Dental Associates to discover if aligners could work for you. Call 586-257-2081 to schedule your consultation.

The confidence that you can gain from straightening your teeth is great, but there are other reasons to get your teeth in line. By correcting problems with your alignment, you can clean your mouth more effectively when you brush, floss, and get dental cleanings. This also can reduce wear and tear on your teeth, which can be caused by overbites, underbites, and other bite problems.

Enjoy the Advantages of Orthodontic Aligners

Although braces can help you achieve your smile goals, many people are not interested in wearing brackets and wires on their teeth, potentially for years. This is why Invisalign aligners have been so valuable for many teens and adults. This system offers some great advantages:

  • Transparency – Each aligner is made of clear plastic. When placed over your teeth, most people won’t realize you have them on, unlike braces.
  • Smoothness – Brackets and wires can irritate the soft tissues inside your mouth. Clear aligners don’t have rough edges, which makes them more comfortable for many patients.
  • Convenience – You can remove your aligners for up to a few hours each day. By taking them out before meals, you don’t have to give up your favorite foods during your treatment. You also don’t have to change how you brush and floss.

Take Your Teeth to a Better Place With Our Invisalign Options

Invisalign has helped millions of adult patients improve their smiles for decades. We offer two newer Invisalign options:

  • Invisalign Teen, which includes indicators to let parents know if their child is wearing their aligners like they should.
  • Invisalign Go, which can make changes for many people in half the time and at half the cost of traditional Invisalign treatment.

To help you decide if you want to move forward, we can use images from our intraoral camera to show you how different your teeth can look when you are finished.

During your initial visit, we’ll assess your smile to determine which treatment is best for you. If you are an Invisalign Go candidate, we can take a photo with our iPad and learn within minutes if this treatment could make the changes you want. For the other systems, we take impressions and measurements, which are sent directly to Invisalign. In about a week, you could have your custom aligners.

To give your teeth an even bigger upgrade, consider a smile makeover. Orthodontic treatment can be combined with cosmetic services like whitening to make dramatic improvements to your smile.

Common Questions About Invisalign

How much does Invisalign cost?

Your individual Invisalign treatment will depend on several variables, including the condition of your teeth and whether you need your upper teeth, lower teeth, or both corrected. We invite you to come in for an Invisalign consultation so that we can perform a complete examination, work up a treatment plan, and give you an accurate cost.

How does Invisalign move your teeth?

Invisalign sets itself apart from traditional braces because it uses clear plastic teeth aligners instead of metal hardware and wires. The aligners slide easily into place and fit snugly over your teeth, so they’re comfortable to wear. They use gentle pressure to gradually move teeth into their proper locations over the course of a few months, not years like regular braces can take.

What is Invisalign made of?

The Invisalign system uses clear aligners made from its patented SmartTrack® material, a type of plastic. This material is engineered and designed to deliver the fastest treatment with the most precise and predictable results. The aligners don’t contain any metal, plus they’re comfortable and easy to slip on and off when necessary.

Is Invisalign painful?

Your Invisalign aligners will be comfortable because they don’t contain any metal or pointed edges that can irritate sensitive areas in your mouth. Most of our patients report little or no trouble getting used to the aligners. They will fit snugly over your teeth and gently shift them into their ideal positions.
