It takes approximately between 9 and 18 months to create a new smile using Invisalign. Getting there takes just four simple steps:
You meet with an Invisalign Provider for a consultation about your treatment.Based on your treatment plan and your dental records, a virtual 3D treatment plan is generated that shows you the expected movement of your teeth from their current position to the desired final position.
Once you and your Invisalign Provider have approved the treatment plan, the aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth. The number of aligners varies for each person.
You wear your aligners about 20 to 22 hours every day, except to eat, brush, and floss, or for a specific occasion.
Every week you switch to a new set of aligners. The aligners will gradually move your teeth towards their final prescribed position.
