Benefits of Invisalign
Patients love straightening their smiles with Invisalign. In addition to feeling more confident about your straight smile, there are numerous other benefits to this special type of orthodontic treatment:
- Avoid the look and feel of metal brackets and wires
- Invisalign can treat a variety of dental issues
- Wearing Invisalign retainers is easy—simply put them in after meals and brushing and take them out to clean
- The aligners are virtually transparent
- Children, teens, and adults can all benefit from this clear alignment technology
- Special align technology moves teeth gradually in position, and many patients claim the retainers are more comfortable than metal braces
- Scans are taken digitally, eliminating the need for traditional molds and impressions
How Does Invisalign Work?
First, you will meet with Dr. Harris at our office to determine your smile goals. If you choose Invisalign, we will take 3D scans of your mouth using a special handheld scanner. We use these scans to create your custom set of aligners, which you can start wearing as soon as they're ready.
Invisalign creates your custom retainers in a lab, then will send them to our office. They are made of special SmartTrack® material that is specifically engineered for Invisalign. This material ensures a comfortable and secure fit for every retainer. Every aligner is trimmed to fit along your gum line without causing irritation, resulting in maximum comfort.
Once we receive your first set of aligners, you will return to our office and we will place them in your mouth. Dr. Harris will ensure they fit properly and feel comfortable, and then your journey to a straighter smile begins!
Wear your aligners every day for 22 hours, only removing them to eat and brush your teeth. The more often you wear your retainers, the faster you will see results. Treatment times will vary depending on the types and extent of the dental issues you are seeking to correct. You'll start seeing results in a matter of weeks, but it will take several months to complete the treatment process.
You will receive a new set of retainers every 2 weeks. Each set includes minor adjustments and when worn, your teeth will gradually shift to fit the new positions. You will visit us for appointments as necessary, and at these visits, we will track the development of your teeth.
With Invisalign’s unique scanning technology, we can predict your smile outcome at the start of treatment. You know exactly what the final result will look like and what to expect along the way.

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign
Do I Need to See an Orthodontist for Invisalign?
Both orthodontists and dentists can be trained to offer Invisalign. Dr. Harris has completed specialized training in this clear alignment system in order to offer more cosmetic dental services to his patients. In addition to being Invisalign-trained, Dr. Harris offers more anesthesia options and restorative services to his patients than standard general dentists. At Vero Dental, your smile is in excellent hands, and we look forward to being a part of your journey to a straighter, happier smile.
What Can I Eat With Invisalign?
One of the huge benefits of this treatment is that there are no diet restrictions. When you eat, remove the retainers and put them back in when you're done. There are no moving parts or brackets to catch food, and you can enjoy your favorite meals without worrying about damaging your retainers.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The cost of Invisalign is similar to the cost of traditional braces. Every case is different, and we will walk you through the cost of your Invisalign treatment during your consultation with Dr. Harris. Contact us today to schedule your appointment at Vero Dental and begin your journey to a straighter, more confident smile.
Will I Have to Wear a Retainer After Treatment?
Most dental professionals recommend wearing a retainer following any type of orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign and traditional braces. Retainers prevent your teeth from gradually shifting back into their previous positions. There are many types of retainers available, and Dr. Harris will be happy to discuss your options for maintaining the results of your Invisalign treatment.
