Invisalign Dentist in Gilbert, AZ
At Lifetime Family Dental, we are committed to helping our patients regain confidence in their smiles with a variety of dental restorations, including Invisalign. If gapped, crooked, or crowded teeth are affecting your confidence, Invisalign treatment from our experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Norton in Gilbert, Arizona could be the right solution for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a brand name of clear aligners designed for teeth straightening. Invisalign involves using 3-D computer imaging technology to develop a series of custom trays designed to fit comfortably in your mouth and straighten your teeth. Over the course of treatment, you will receive a new set of trays every couple of weeks that will gradually move your teeth to a new position.
How long does treatment take?
As long as you follow all of Dr. Norton’s instructions for wearing and cleaning your clear aligners, you can expect fast, effective results when you choose Invisalign. Treatment typically only lasts around 12 months, however, the length can vary depending on your dental correction needs. No matter the length of your treatment plan, you will most likely begin to see results in just a few months.
Why choose Invisalign from Lifetime Family Dental?
