Invisalign: The Unobtrusive Way to a More Beautiful Smile
By Dr. Shahla Hassanzadeh, Dentist
A beautiful smile is not only a joy to look at, it can also have a positive impact on our self-esteem and confidence. For many people, traditional braces have been the only solution to straighten their teeth and improve their bite. But now there is a modern and discreet solution that offers great results without compromising on comfort and appearance - Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic method that uses customized, clear plastic aligners to align teeth. These trays are specially designed for each individual based on their unique orthodontic needs. With regular shifts of the trays, which are made in a progressive sequence, Invisalign gently moves the teeth into their desired positions over time.
Advantages of Invisalign:
- Discretion: One of the most obvious benefits of Invisalign is its discretion. The clear aligners are barely noticeable, allowing you to straighten your teeth without having to worry about the aesthetic impact of traditional metal braces.
- Comfort: Invisalign braces are made of soft and comfortable plastic, and they rarely cause the discomfort or sores sometimes associated with traditional braces and wires.
- Easy Maintenance: The Invisalign aligners are easy to remove during meals and when brushing your teeth, making it easy to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment.
- Faster Results: Many patients find that Invisalign provides faster results than traditional braces, although it varies depending on each individual's unique situation. And that very rarely a tooth extraction is needed, which is a must in most cases with traditional braces.
- Versatile Use: Invisalign can be used to correct a variety of orthodontic problems, including over- or underbite, crossbite, and crowded or sparse teeth.
Is Invisalign right for you?
Invisalign is an excellent option for many patients who wish to improve their alignment and smile. However, it is important to consult with an experienced dentist or orthodontist to determine if Invisalign is right for your specific situation. A thorough evaluation and a customized treatment plan will help ensure you get the results you desire.
Invisalign has changed the world of orthodontics by offering a discreet, comfortable and effective method of achieving a beautiful smile. It's a great solution for people of all ages who want to improve both their dental health and their self-confidence. If you are considering orthodontics and value discretion and comfort, Invisalign is definitely worth considering.

How does Invisalign work?
Before your treatment plan, you will discuss your wishes with dentist Shahla Hassanzadeh. Then a 3D scan of your teeth is made. When your case is submitted to Align Technology, we will see a 3D model, a so-called Clincheck, This animated video will show the end result of your treatment. Together we review this to make sure it matches the desired result.
Each splint is then worn for about 1-2 weeks each, until your teeth reach their final position. Some, short-term irritation or tension may occur each time you change the plastic braces. However, this discomfort is significantly less than that of traditional metal braces. You may also experience minor speech difficulties, but this too is very short-lived.

Cost of Invisalign
Many people think that Invisalign costs much more than traditional braces. But surprisingly, the prices are relatively consistent. The cost of Invisalign is slightly higher than traditional braces because of the laboratory fee.
For minor deviations, veneers may be an alternative treatment. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us and we will arrange a meeting to determine your needs.
