Many patients accept crooked, uneven, or generally unattractive teeth just to avoid traditional metal braces because of their visible appearance and discomfort. With the advent of Invisalign, patients no longer have to worry about the unpleasantness of metal braces thanks to Invisalign’s innovative approach. Using clear, removable aligners, the system gradually and effectively straightens teeth comfortably and almost invisibly. The dentists at Cosmetic Dental Associates in Houston will tailor treatment plans for patients to achieve the best-looking results. Most patients can expect to get the teeth of their dreams in about a year.

What to Expect
To be fitted for Invisalign, a dentist will take photos, digital X-rays, and make impressions of the patient’s teeth. From these, a set of clear, plastic, customized aligners will be created to fit the patient’s mouth. The aligners are part of a treatment plan that will make gradual changes and adjustments to the teeth. A patient wears the aligners for a predetermined amount of time before moving onto the next aligner. Conveniently, aligners are pain-free and easily removable which is ideal for eating, brushing, and flossing.
A dentist will determine how long a patient needs to wear Invisalign depending on the starting condition of the patient’s teeth. New aligners will be created about every 2 weeks or as needed to incrementally adjust the patient’s teeth. Throughout the process, the patient will have regular check-ups with the dentist to confirm the patient’s progress. Most patients achieve full results in 1 – 2 years.
The price of Invisalign is dependent upon the patient’s condition, with more severe cases costing more. For less serious cases, there’s Invisalign Express which is $2,500 to $3,500. More complex cases can cost anywhere from $4,000 to $5,500. Our front office will check with the patient’s insurance carrier to see if any costs will be covered under their policy.
