A Straighter Smile in Three to Six Months with Invisalign Express
Minor spacing or crowding concerns are frustrating but often natural. Depending on the condition of your smile, you can achieve a straighter smile in as little as three to six months with Invisalign® Express. Dr. Carmen Every-Degel offers this expedited treatment option as a part of her full suite of Invisalign treatment choices. Our office provides Queens, NY, and the surrounding communities with comprehensive Invisalign options. If you are not a viable candidate for Invisalign Express, we can help you choose an alternative which works for you at our office.
Who is Eligible for Express Treatment?
Invisalign Express is appropriate for patients:
- With minor crowding or spacing concerns
- Who have had prior orthodontic treatment but whose teeth have started to shift again
- With two or three misaligned teeth
- Who want to remove braces for a special occasion but have not completed their treatment
- Who need to straighten teeth prior to undergoing cosmetic procedures such as dental bonding or veneers
- Who require minimal rotation of their teeth
Although many patients prefer the quicker timeframe that Invisalign Express offers, it is important to remember that the treatment is not appropriate for all patients. If you have severe misalignment or spacing issues, you may be a better candidate for traditional Invisalign treatment. To better understand which treatment is right for you, you can complete a complimentary smile assessment on the Invisalign website. However, the best way to accurately determine whether you are a good candidate is to visit our office for a consultation.
Your Initial Consultation
During your initial consultation with Dr. Every-Degel, she will evaluate your smile and determine whether Invisalign Express or another Invisalign option is right for you. Thanks to our computer smile imaging SmilePix system, we can show you a preview of what your smile can look like after Invisalign treatment. Dr. Every-Degel will then send your impressions to Invisalign, where your custom treatment plan will be created. If you are happy with the proposed treatment timeline and costs, we can begin your treatment.
While a Full Invisalign case typically lasts 11 to 12 months, Invisalign Express treatment can usually be completed within three to six months.
Treatment Lasts Three to Six Months
While a Full Invisalign case typically lasts 11 to 12 months, Invisalign Express treatment can usually be completed within three to six months. Depending on your unique case, you may be able to complete your treatment using anywhere from five to 10 aligners. Every two weeks, you will transition into a new set of aligners. As with traditional Invisalign, these must be worn at all times throughout the day except for eating, brushing, and flossing. Failing to wear your aligners as directed may prevent you from reaching your ideal smile within the desired time frame.
