A straight, beautiful smile is something that everyone wants. And rightfully so, since a good smile can do wonders for your appearance and self-esteem. From more confidence in the office and in your personal life, straight teeth and a great smile are invaluable.

Getting that smile, though, isn’t an ideal process. Most people think the only way to get straight teeth is still with traditional orthodontics. But you don’t have to rely only on brackets and wires. Thanks to advances in orthodontic technology, there’s a new procedure available.

What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a new process for straightening teeth you can find in the office of most any orthodontist in the country. Instead of using wires and brackets to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® clear plastic aligners.

How does it work?
During your first visit with Dr. John R. Schouten, you’ll have a mold made of your teeth. Once that mold has dried and formed, the rest of the team here will work on creating a series of clear, plastic aligners that are engineered to slowly move your teeth into their correct position over time. Invisalign® treatment typically lasts around two years. Treatment can be longer or shorter depending on your specific situation.

Will it work for me?
Invisalign® isn’t a fit for everyone, but most people will be able to benefit from it. Our team here at Schouten Orthodontics in Price, Utah, will help you determine if it can make the difference you want to see in your smile.
