What is Invisalign?

Invisalign with Dental West

Dental West NYC takes a minimalist approach to Invisalign, as with most dental treatments. We love the technology and think all patients who want to straighten their teeth should consider Invisalign. We believe that the benefits of straight teeth go beyond cosmetics and will help you keep your teeth healthy and functioning properly.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners meant to straighten your teeth almost invisibly. The company’s patented SmartTrack material is engineered especially for orthodontic movement, and for many patients, it represents a welcome alternative to metal braces.

Alternative to Veneers

One of the doctors’ most common applications for Invisalign is as an alternative to veneers. That’s right! You might be able to get that perfect smile without the commitment of veneers. For some patients, a few months of Invisalign and a whitening treatment can actually give you the smile you’ve always wanted.

Whitening After Invisalign

We recommend a whitening treatment after a course of Invisalign. Why? Because it’s hard to keep your teeth clean when you have aligners on them. No matter how good you are at taking care of your teeth, food gets lodged and causes discoloration over time. Plus, after having plastic over your teeth for a few months, your teeth need to breathe. The whitening at Dental West NYC oxygenates your teeth and keeps them at their healthiest…and whitest.
