Step 1

Book Your First
Consultation

We will begin by examining your smile to determine if Invisalign is right for you. Next, we will use a digital scanner to create a 3D image of your smile and what it could look like with Invisalign treatment.

Step 2

Develop a Custom
Treatment Plan

Based on the decisions made in your first appointment, we will map out an Invisalign treatment plan with timelines. Your plan will include the exact movement of your teeth to occur with each set of aligners.

Step 3

Start Your Custom
Treatment Plan

We will produce a series of custom Invisalign clear aligners. You will wear them each day, removing them to eat, drink, brush and floss. During treatment, the aligners should gradually shift your teeth.

Step 4

Switch Your Aligners
Every Two Weeks

Approximately every 2 weeks, you will move on to your next set of clear aligners. Additionally, you will also have brief checkups with your dental team every six weeks or so to review your progress. 

Step 5

Maintain Your
Smile After Treatment

It's an exciting day when you reach the end of your treatment! During your final appointment, we will discuss next steps, and prescribe retainers to keep your teeth in their new positions.
