The World’s Most Advanced Clear Aligner System

Are you hiding your smile because of crooked, crowded, or widely spaced teeth? Do you have an overbite or underbite? Straightening your teeth and aligning your bite is not just for teens. Invisalign by Align Technology offers virtually invisible aligners to gently and discreetly move your teeth into place. Visit Sunshine Smiles Dental Care to get started today!


What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary clear aligner system that uses a series of custom-crafted aligner trays to gradually move your teeth into their desired position. Your aligners are fabricated using a unique thermoplastic material called SmartTrack, which is created exclusively for Invisalign. The patented material moves your teeth with unmatched comfort and precision.

Invisalign treatment typically takes an average of 9-15 months to complete. After achieving your goals, you will need to wear retainers to keep the teeth from shifting back out of alignment.

How Does Invisalign Work?

The first step toward the smile of your dreams is taking digital impressions of your smile with our state-of-the-art intraoral scanner. One of our experienced dentists will create a digital treatment plan tailored to your unique needs, mapping out the exact movements of your teeth and the expected length of treatment. Once you approve your plan, an Invisalign lab will create your custom aligner trays.

Your Invisalign clear aligners are engineered to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time, moving your teeth with precision. You will need to wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day to keep your progress on track. You will change your aligner set for the next in the series about every 1 to 2 weeks, following your custom treatment plan. You will be amazed to see your teeth gradually moving into alignment, delivering the beautiful, straight smile you have always wanted!

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers numerous benefits. The clear aligner trays are practically invisible, eliminating the need to wear traditional metal braces. The aligner trays are removable for eating, brushing, and special occasions, allowing you to align your smile without impacting your life. With Invisalign, you will not have to deal with metal brackets or wires that can irritate your mouth.

In addition to delivering a beautiful smile, Invisalign can enhance your oral health. Straight teeth are much easier to clean, which can help reduce plaque and tartar buildup, the leading causes of tooth decay and gum disease. Aligning your teeth and bite can also help distribute the pressure on your teeth, lowering the risk of uneven tooth wear, chipping, fracture, and even TMJ pain. Straightening your teeth and aligning your bite will improve the function of your teeth, enhancing your quality of life.

Are You a Candidate for Invisalign?

In most cases, if you are a candidate for traditional braces, you’re likely a candidate for Invisalign. The innovative orthodontic solution can treat gapped, crooked, protruding, or crowded teeth and mild to moderate problems with the bite, like overbites, underbites, open bites, and crossbites. Our experienced team at Sunshine Smiles Dental Care will evaluate your unique needs and help you determine the ideal solution to achieve your desired results.
