Invisalign in Elgin, IL
Not long ago, many adults chose to avoid orthodontic treatment because of the time involved and inconvenience of wearing metal braces. Today, technology has provided us with many options for short-term adult orthodontic treatment. At Won Sung, DDS, our goal is to provide you with options that improve your oral health and make you look and feel great.
We are pleased to offer Invisalign clear aligners, one of the most popular new orthodontic treatments available today. Invisalign has changed the way we approach the problem of misaligned teeth. No more heavy metal braces or years of treatment – now you can easily correct crooked teeth in as little as a year!
Invisalign clear braces are an orthodontic treatment appropriate for teens and adults. The aligners are a popular alternative to braces because they work quickly and are easy to wear. The smooth plastic aligners are clear so most people won’t notice you’re wearing them. They’re also much gentler on your mouth than metal or ceramic braces.
The one thing that really makes Invisalign clear braces so popular is that they’re completely removable. You don’t have to worry about food getting caught in wires and brackets – just remove the aligners before you eat! Since you can remove them, effective oral hygiene is also much easier than with traditional braces.
The Invisalign Process
We create your customized Invisalign aligners using state-of-the-art 3-D computer imaging. This allows us to pinpoint your alignment problem and develop a plan that predicts the movement of your teeth during treatment.
Once Dr. Sung develops your plan for treatment, you’ll receive a set of custom aligners. Just wear each for about two weeks, then move to the next set of aligners. You’ll be able to see the progress as your teeth gradually move into their proper position.
We’ll tell you everything you need to know about Invisalign treatment and make appointments to see you once every six weeks to check on your progress. Most Invisalign treatment takes approximately a year for adults, with treatment time for older teens being about the same as with traditional braces.
You Deserve a Beautiful Smile
Today we place a lot of emphasis on physical appearance. But the benefits of having a straight, healthy smile are not just esthetic. If you know you look great, you’ll feel more confident, and interacting with others will be a joy again. When you’re happy with the way others see you, you feel confident, and that confidence is like a magnet that makes people want to get to know you better.
More and more insurance plans now cover the cost of Invisalign treatment, just as they would other orthodontic treatments. But we know that dental coverage can be complicated, and we’ll be happy to take the time to guide you through the process.
If you’re unhappy with misaligned teeth that mar your smile but you don't want to be saddled with conspicuous metal braces, Invisalign can help! Please contact our Elgin dental office to arrange a consultation and learn how we can provide you with the smile makeover you’ve been waiting for!
