Are your teeth crooked or crowded? Do you wish for a straighter, more beautiful smile? Ask Drs. Vela and Arredondo about Invisalign® in Corpus Christi, Texas. Invisalign is the leading brand of clear aligners, which slip over the teeth to gently straighten them over time. Your Invisalign aligners are custom made to give you an individualized treatment. Our dentists also provide ClearCorrect™ aligners.
To provide you with Invisalign or ClearCorrect aligners, our dentists will take X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth. Invisalign or ClearCorrect will use these images and impression to make a 3D image of your smile. A treatment plan will be formed, including the exact movement of your teeth and the length of treatment. For adults, treatment time is usually about a year and for teenagers, treatment time is similar to that of braces. A series of clear aligners will be custom made to straighten your smile. Wear your aligners during the day, removing them to eat, brush, and floss. The aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day. Our dentists will supply you with a new set of aligners about ever two weeks. This will allow your teeth to continue to move in the desired direction.
