Invisible Braces

Most of our patients are surprised to learn that invisible braces with Invisalign are similar in cost to traditional braces. Of course, each of our patients at GB Dental is unique, and your treatment plan may vary greatly from someone else's. The best way to determine the exact cost for your invisible braces in Memorial, TX is to schedule an Invisalign evaluation with Dr. Bharwani. He will determine the price of your treatment with Invisalign based on the complexity of your case and the length of time needed to complete it.

If you have dental insurance that includes an orthodontic benefit, you can typically apply that benefit towards straightening your teeth with Invisalign. Insurance may help to defray a portion of your out-of-pocket cost.

GB Dental also works with CareCredit for patients who would like to pay over time for their treatment with affordable monthly payments. CareCredit is simple and easy to apply for, either in our dental office or at home online, and you will receive a quick response so you can plan for your treatment accordingly. There are even interest-free plans for qualifying patients.

Invisalign in Memorial, TX offers patients a comfortable and effective way to straighten their teeth without having to wear metal braces. Instead of traditional brackets and wires, we use clear plastic aligners that you wear for at least 22 hours each day to complete treatment with Invisalign. 

Unlike braces, clear aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear, so you don't have to worry about sore cheeks and lips from pokey wires or brackets. Invisible braces are also removable, which means you can enjoy all the foods you love during your treatment. You will also be able to brush and floss with ease without having to clean around brackets and wires.

Depending on your needs and the complexity of your case, Invisalign can typically be completed in a similar amount of time as braces would be. However, you'll be able to change your aligners at home every two weeks, so you won't need as many visits to check in with your dentist in Memorial as you would with traditional braces.

Invisible braces with Invisalign offer adults and teens in Memorial, TX the perfect opportunity to straighten their teeth discreetly and easily fit their treatment into their busy schedules. Call GB Dental today for more information about treatment with Invisalign.

invisalign | memorial txTreatment times for Invisalign vary from person to person based on how much change is required to straighten your teeth. Over the years, Invisalign has greatly improved the time required for treatment. Most patients are in a window of anywhere between six and 18 months.

When you are ready to see how long treatment will take and what type of improvement to expect, we will conduct an ortho evaluation appointment and take photographs and a digital 3-D impression of your mouth.

Within a few days, Invisalign will send us a 3-D virtual model of how long your treatment will take along with how your teeth will look after the treatment is completed.

What are the benefits of Invisalign in the 70779 Area?

One of the benefits of Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners is the fact that you can see your progress while you are undergoing treatment. Since your teeth will not be covered with metal wires and brackets and the aligners can be taken out, you can see your smile as it moves into the properly aligned position.

Invisible braces with Invisalign in Memorial, TX works well for most patients.

In order to progress through your treatment plan in a timely manner, you will need to wear your aligners at least 22 hours each day and change them every two weeks. Because there is compliance required to complete your treatment successfully, we typically recommend invisible braces for adults or teens.

Some of the problems that Invisalign can fix are:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crossbites
  • Overbites
  • Teeth that overlap
  • Gaps or spacing between teeth

Invisalign can't correct specific complicated bite issues, so it's essential to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Bharwani to see if this type of treatment will help you reach your goals.

During your Invisalign evaluation, Dr. Bharwani will take x-rays, photos, and models of your teeth to determine if treatment is right for you, how long it would take, and how much it would cost. If you move forward with invisible braces, Invisalign makes your clear aligners using this treatment plan, and you'll even be able to see what your finished smile will look like with 3-D imaging.
