Would you wear braces if they were "invisible?" What if they were comfortable and removable, with no metal wires or brackets? If these features sound good to you, Invisalign may be your solution for teeth that are too crowded, too far apart or shifting after alignment with traditional braces.
Dr. Lunt is trained and certified to use Invisalign technology. After an initial examination, he will determine if Invisalign is right for you. If so, he will send an impression of your teeth to the Invisalign Laboratory. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, they will use Dr. Lunt's instructions to create several slightly different aligners, precisely molded to match your measurements and treatment goals.
Most people wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, day and night, except to eat, brush and floss. This moves your teeth gradually, week by week, millimeter by millimeter, until you've achieved the intended result. The number of office visits and length of treatment is about the same as that for traditional braces—an average of about 12 to 24 months. Dazzle them with your smile, not with metal!
