Invisalign, a Great Alternative to Metal Braces for Straightening Your Teeth
Have you thought about how you can get a straighter, beautiful smile but don’t want to have the “metal mouth” look as an adult?
Invisalign® is a great alternative to metal braces for straightening your teeth.
Invisalign is the modern approach to straightening teeth by using clear, custom-made aligners. They work by gradually and gently shifting your teeth into place. Simply pop in a new set of aligners every week and you’re set. The process to start Invisalign Charlotte and begin your journey to straighter teeth is simple and each step of the way is monitored by your cosmetic dentist at Pearl. There are no sharp metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten every month. With Invisalign Charlotte, you can achieve a great smile with little to no daily interference.

Our cosmetic dentists are Invisalign specialists, trained to monitor the shifting and movement of your teeth throughout the teeth-straightening process to make sure you’re getting the straight and beautiful smile you’ve wanted.
What can I expect when I start my Invisalign treatment?
You can expect some mild discomfort the first few days each time you begin using a new set of Invisalign trays because your teeth are shifting the most. That discomfort goes away after a few days after your teeth get used to the new tray. Typically, you will change up the tray you’re using every 1 week, depending on the plan your doctor made for you.
How much does Invisalign cost?
Check with your cosmetic dentist office to learn more about the cost of Invisalign Charlotte. The cost for Invisalign varies depending on the treatment plan your doctor has recommended for you, along with what insurance will cover.
How often will I have to go into the dentist's office to get my Invisalign progress checked and my new trays?
It depends on your Invisalign treatment care plan that your doctor set up for you, but typically, you’ll only need to do a virtual appointment about every 6 to 8 weeks to have your dentist look at your progress. How frequently you change your trays also depends on your treatment plan, but usually, you will change your trays each week. Your cosmetic dentist will give you multiple trays at once so you won't have to come into the office as often.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign’s clear aligners work by slowly and gently shifting your teeth to form a straight and stunning smile. You will receive trays that need to be changed out each week that will help your teeth shift and stay in place until it’s time for the next tray. If you have any questions about your specific treatment plan, contact your dentist.
You will have to take your Invisalign aligners out before you eat and drink anything and brush your teeth before putting your clear aligners back in. The makers of Invisalign suggest that you wear your clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day, for the best results. Always keep your aligners clean by rinsing them every night and brush them lightly with your toothbrush.
