At the beginning of Invisalign® treatment, patients receive a series of aligners crafted using 3D imaging technology. Worn for about one week each, Invisalign® aligners are designed to be nearly undetectable on your teeth and can be taken out while eating or drinking. While each patient is different, the total treatment time is typically between nine to 15 months. Dr. Ben Youel is a certified Invisalign® provider.
The SureSmile® aligner system uses cutting-edge imaging and computer-aided design software to construct customized clear aligners. The fit is always tight and flawless. Compared to the Invisalign system, the SureSmile trays are clearer, less noticeable and treatment can be completed with fewer tooth-colored attachments glued to your teeth. Dr. Ben trusts SureSmile clear aligners for many of his most complicated aligner cases.
Similar to Invisalign® and SureSmile®, 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners offer an aesthetically pleasing alternative to braces, allowing you to correct your smile without disrupting your appearance in the meantime. The aligners are designed to resist staining and discoloration so that they can continue to blend in with your smile. As a side benefit, they can also prevent your upper and lower teeth from grinding together, and they avoid the irritation to the gums and cheeks that metal braces can cause.
