We also do not let finances stand in the way of getting a beautiful smile. We offer a number of payment plans that make any treatment fit our patients’ budgets.
A: Yes. In both clinical research and in orthodontic and dental practices nationwide, Invisalign® has been proven effective at straightening teeth.
A: Because dental benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, each patient should review their coverage. However, if a patient has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign® should be covered to the same extent as traditional braces.
A: Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn.
A: Aligners are nearly invisible and look similar to clear tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made for a better fit to move teeth. Some orthodontists and dentists have referred to them as “contact lenses for teeth.”
A: Like brackets and archwires, Invisalign® Aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The principal difference is that Invisalign® not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system.
A: Doctors can use Invisalign to treat a vast majority of patients with fully-erupted molars.

Are you curious about the process? See below for a step by step guide to Invisalign treatment!
As a Certified Provider of Invisalign and Invisalign Teen, you can be confident in Dr. Vonny’s ability to straighten your smile using this treatment option. During your consultation, we will discuss your case in detail to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. You will also be able to ask questions about Invisalign, costs, insurance and any other concerns you may have.
We will take digital X-Rays and a digital impression of your teeth which Invisalign will use to create a digital 3D image. From these images, we’ll be able to map out a precise treatment plan to achieve our goals. Using this technology, Dr. Vonny will be able to show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move in each state of treatment. While every case is different, the treatment time is approximately 15-24 months.
Based on the customized treatment plan Dr. Vonny creates for you, a series of custom-made, clear aligners will be fabricated. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that are comfortable to wear. Simply wear them throughout the day and remove them to eat or brush and floss your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place.
Approximately every 10 days, you will begin wearing a new set of aligners, advancing you to the next stage of treatment. To monitor your progress, you will have occasional check-ups with Dr. Vonny, usually every 10 weeks. For best results and speedy outcome, you should wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours per day, throughout your treatment. At each stage, you’ll be able to see how much closer you are to a achieving a beautiful, confident smile.
