WHAT IS INVISALIGN®?
At Smile Artistry we are proud to offer our patients the latest and most advanced technologies designed to make your treatment faster, easier, and more effective. And, Invisalign® is one of those!
Invisalign® straightens teeth using position-aligning trays. These clear aligners are created using industry-leading technology based on your customized treatment plan. After making a digital 3D image of your teeth (no need for messy impressions!), your custom aligners are created with comfort in mind and engineered for a precise fit.
But one of the best features of Invisalign® is how discreet they are. You can go about living your normal life at work or school, and no one will know that you are straightening your teeth!
WHY YOU WILL LOVE INVISALIGN®
The newest aligners have features to treat more kinds of cases including overbites and underbites.
Straighter teeth are healthier teeth since they are easier to brush and floss around.
With Invisalign®, you can still eat your favorite foods whenever you want.
You can remove the aligner trays to eat, brush and floss or for that important business meeting or school photos.
Invisalign® clear aligners will fit into your busy life and not draw attention to your orthodontic treatment.
Generally, treatment with Invisalign® is faster than with traditional braces and there is less need for multiple office visits.

FAQS ABOUT INVISALIGN®
- What is the Invisalign® process like?
Your Invisalign® treatment starts with a consultation with Dr. McNeill. She will evaluate your smile and plan out a customized digital treatment plan that will help you to see the step-by-step transformation of your smile.
Once your treatment plan is mapped out, your aligners will be created. You wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place under Dr. McNeill’s direction until your beautiful new smile is achieved.
- Can any dentist do Invisalign® treatment?
Many orthodontists and dentists are Invisalign-trained doctors, but not all are. Doctors who want to offer Invisalign treatment must complete specialized training. Dr. McNeill has been certified as an Invisalign provider. Additionally, because of her extensive training in cosmetics, she has the knowledge and artistic eye to help you have a beautifully balanced, straight, and natural looking smile.
- How long does Invisalign® treatment take?
The length of treatment depends on many factors. Dr. McNeill will be able to give you an idea of how long your treatment will take based on how complex your case is. On average, Invisalign treatment time is 12 to 18 months, though you can start seeing results in just a matter of weeks!
- How often will I have appointments with the dentist?
Dr. McNeill will schedule regular appointments, usually about once every four to six weeks. The goal of these visits is to ensure your Invisalign treatment is progressing as planned and to make any necessary adjustments to your treatment.
