Digital Technology Makes Invisalign Treatment Easy & Convenient

We use the latest technology in all aspects of our practice at Sioux Falls Smiles. Our dentists will examine you using equipment like digital X-rays, 3-D imaging, and intraoral cameras to determine if you’re a candidate for treatment with Invisalign. Chances are good you will be, as it can correct issues like overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, crowding, and gaps between teeth.

Once we’ve determined you’re a candidate, we will:

  • Make impressions of your teeth using digital technology instead of messy goop
  • Use the impressions to create a 3-D model of your smile
  • Use the model to design a custom treatment plan for you with special software
  • Send our plan to an Invisalign lab, which uses it to produce a series of custom-made aligners for you

Unlike with braces, you’ll make only occasional visits to our office, so we can check your progress. You also won’t need any uncomfortable adjustments, with tightening of wires. You just wear each set of aligners about two weeks, then switch to the next ones in the series.

While you can easily remove them for meals or oral hygiene, make sure you wear them at least 22 hours a day for the best results. Average treatment time is 12 to 18 months, so you can straighten your smile in months instead of years.

Enhance Your Smile With Other Cosmetic Dentistry

Once your teeth are straight, you may want to further improve your smile with some other cosmetic dentistry procedures. A complete smile makeover might also include:

  • Dental Veneers – Veneers can hide issues like chips, wear and tear, and stubborn stains.
  • Teeth Whitening – Brighten your newly straight teeth with convenient at-home whitening.
  • Dental Bonding – A bonding treatment can conceal minor imperfections.
  • Gum Recession Treatment – Don’t let receding gums detract from your straight smile. Our dentists can use a comfortable gum grafting procedure to restore your gums.
  • Teeth Contouring – A contouring treatment can address problems that orthodontics can’t, such as an uneven edge or overly pointy tooth.
  • Gum Reshaping – We can remove excess gum tissue, so it won’t overshadow your smile.
