Invisalign® Aligners in Mount Vernon, WA

Invisalign® Aligners are a popular orthodontic treatment option that can discreetly and effectively improve the alignment and spacing of your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are custom-made to fit comfortably over your teeth and are virtually invisible.

The treatment process for Invisalign® involves wearing a series of aligners tailored to your specific needs. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks and gradually shifts your teeth until you achieve your desired results, which typically takes about two years.

You should only remove Invisalign® aligners for eating, drinking, and cleaning; they should be worn at all other times. Initially, the aligners may feel tight and uncomfortable, but this will improve over time and become more comfortable as you continue wearing them.

  • How does the Invisalign® process work?

    To start the Invisalign® process, we take photographs of your teeth and face, dental impressions of your teeth, and x-rays. We then send those records to Invisalign® along with detailed instructions on how we want the final result to look. Invisalign® uses the impressions to create a 3D model of your teeth and works closely with your dentist to get the mold to its exact proportions. Once the final model is ready, the trays are made and shipped to your dentist’s office. You will wear a set of trays for two weeks at a time for approximately 2 years or the length determined by your dentist.

  • Invisalign® vs. braces—what's the difference?

    There are significant differences between Invisalign® and braces. Ultimately, the decision is yours, but Invisalign® offers a more efficient, less painful way to straighten teeth.

    • Materials. Invisalign® uses clear transparent aligners, while braces use wires and brackets.
    • Removability. The user can remove Invisalign® aligners anytime, while braces require professional removal.
    • Food Restrictions. Invisalign® also allows you to eat whatever you want and does not affect oral care practices. In contrast, braces limit what you can safely eat and need special maintenance and care.
    • Injury Risks. Invisalign® aligners do not present injury risks, whereas braces can cause cuts and other injuries.
    • Visibility. Invisalign® aligners are nearly invisible, while braces are highly noticeable.
  • How much does Invisalign® cost?

    According to the Invisalign® website, this treatment’s cost is similar to that of metal braces. However, the total cost can vary based on two factors:

    1. Insurance coverage. Most insurance plans cover Invisalign® the same way they cover metal braces. However, insurance will rarely cover Invisalign® for purely cosmetic reasons. It is possible that each case could be different from one another.
    2. Length/complexity of treatment. With Invisalign®, you receive new clear aligners every few weeks. Therefore, the cost can vary based on whether your treatment requires more or fewer aligners.

  • Who can use Invisalign®?

    Invisalign® is suitable for most teens and adults who require mild to moderate orthodontic corrections. This includes patients whose teeth are crooked, misaligned, or have noticeable spacing problems. Invisalign® can also help patients with minor bite issues. However, it is essential to note that not all orthodontic issues can be treated with Invisalign®. More extensive problems will require additional treatment.
