Ready to achieve your straight and seamless dream smile? If so, our Toluca Lake cosmetic dentist office is here to help you in any way we can. Part of our job is to make sure that our patients are well informed about their various treatment options. With that in mind, we offer this short list of questions and answers about cosmetic Invisalign treatment. I hope that after reviewing this article you will feel well versed on the ins and outs of Invisalign.

Q: Does Invisalign hurt?

A: Some patients do experience some discomfort when they switch to a new, tighter aligner. In general, however, Invisalign treatment is much less painful than traditional orthodontic treatment. This is because Invisalign aligners are completely smooth and metal free, and because these aligners move teeth incrementally.

Q: How long does Invisalign treatment take to complete?

A: All Invisalign cases are different, so it is impossible to say exactly how long your Invisalign process will last. In general, however, Invisalign takes about a year to a year and half for full results. If you would like a more precise timeline, feel free to speak to our dentist about your smile.

Q: How will Invisalign aligners stay in my mouth?

A: Invisalign aligners are not held in place with any adhesives or brackets. Rather, Invisalign aligners are designed to fit over the teeth so perfectly that they stay firmly in place. You will be amazed at how natural these aligners feel after only a few days of wearing them.
