About Invisalign

While many people have had to suffer through old-fashioned metal braces that are cumbersome and uncomfortable, Invisalign is the new, easier way to get straighter teeth. Invisalign is a series of customized aligners, specially designed for a patient’s mouth. By wearing them, the teeth are gradually straightened and corrected, leaving a beautiful smile at the end of the process. There’s no interruption in oral hygiene, eating, or sleeping. This is a great alternative for patients of all ages who want to fix their smile without wearing traditional braces. As a skilled provider of Invisalign orthodontics in New York City, Dr. Victoria Veytsman helps patients at her practice, Cosmetic Dental Studios, in Manhattan's Midtown East neighborhood, correct crowded, crooked, poorly-aligned teeth so they can enjoy healthier and more beautiful smiles.

What to Expect

To be fitted for Invisalign, Dr. Veytsman will take photos, digital X-rays, and make impressions of the patient’s teeth. From these, a set of clear, plastic, customized aligners will be created to fit the patient’s mouth. The aligners are part of a treatment plan that will make gradual changes and adjustments to the teeth. A patient wears the aligners for a predetermined amount of time before moving onto the next aligner. Conveniently, aligners are pain-free and easily removable which is ideal for eating, brushing, and flossing.

Am I A Candidate For Invisalign?

Almost everyone, from children and teens to, adults can achieve a straighter, more beautiful smile with Invisalign. A wide variety of teeth misalignments and other issues can be treated with Invisalign, including:

  • Minimally crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Protruding teeth (teeth that stick out)
  • Mild overbites and underbites
  • Tooth overlaps
  • Overcrowding
  • Teeth positioning

The only issues that Invisalign isn't effective for are extreme oral conditions like severe overbites or underbites, misalignments of the jaw, or bone issues.

Treatment Aftercare

Dr. Veytsman will determine how long the patient needs to wear Invisalign depending on the starting condition of the patient’s teeth. New aligners will be created about every 2 weeks, or as needed, to incrementally adjust the patient’s teeth. Throughout the process, the patient will have regular check-ups with Dr. Veytsman at Cosmetic Dental Studios to confirm the patient’s progress. Most patients achieve full results in 1 – 2 years.

Anticipated Costs

The price of Invisalign is dependent upon the patient’s condition, with more severe cases costing more. Our front office will check with the patient’s insurance carrier to see if any costs will be covered under their policy.

Invisalign FAQ

Is Invisalign better than braces?

Invisalign is the most advanced clear aligner system available today. Unlike braces that are affixed to your teeth, an Invisalign tray can be removed for eating, brushing, sports, or other activities. Invisialign is less noticeable than braces, and in some cases, the consistent force applied by the trays may be more effective than braces for straightening the teeth.

 

Does Invisalign really work?

Absolutely. That’s why so many people are turning to Invisalign for their teeth-straightening solution. Invisalign is effective, easy to wear, relatively unnoticeable, and best of all – removable.

 

How quickly do teeth move with Invisalign?

How quickly you will see results depends directly on the complexity of your teeth. Some patients can finish their Invisalign treatment in six months, but many will begin to see results in a few weeks.

 

What problems can Invisalign NOT fix?

Invisalign works for a wide variety of teeth straightening issues, but there are some more complex issues that Invisalign isn’t designed to address. These include:

  • A severe overbite
  • Tooth positioning (ex: rotated teeth)
  • Tooth shape (if the teeth are too short, Invisalign may not work properly)
