Straighten Your Smile with Invisalign®
If you’re unsatisfied with your crooked, gapped, or overcrowded smile, Drs. Chalker & Peterson can help. Invisalign® clear aligners can give you the healthier, straighter smile you’ve always wanted.
At our practice, we utilize the latest diagnostic methods to plan your orthodontic journey. We choose Invisalign for our patients because it is the least invasive method and offers a host of benefits, including:
- Removability – You can take out your aligners as you please, meaning you can eat regular foods and brush your teeth as normal.
- Faster Treatment Times – Invisalign generally take less time in the dental chair than with traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are intended for simple to moderate cases. If you qualify for this treatment option, you could be done in as little as 12 months.
- Dual Function as Whitening Trays – Did you know you can use Invisalign aligner trays to whiten your teeth? After your orthodontic treatment, we can prescribe an at-home treatment that gently brightens your smile in a few weeks.
- Discreet – Because your aligners are clear, they’re mostly invisible to others while speaking and smiling. Most people won’t notice that you’re undergoing orthodontic work.
The Invisalign Process
First, we evaluate your bite to determine if Invisalign is a viable option. It works best on mild to moderate levels of misalignment—more severe cases will need heavier treatment with traditional braces.
After your evaluation, we will take detailed records of your bite to send to the Invisalign laboratories. There, a team of orthodontic experts will manufacture your aligners.
You’ll receive a new set of aligners every other week, and your teeth will gently shift under the pressure of the aligners over time. You must wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day, only removing them to eat and maintain your hygiene habits.
Invisalign could be the simple solution to your smile’s misalignment. With this and other cosmetic services, Drs. Chalker & Peterson will help you reach the smile of your dreams.
