At Dental133 in Leawood, Kansas, we can help you attain the beautiful, straight smile you've always wanted! For a straight smile without the ugly metal of traditional braces you should consider Invisalign clear aligners!
While many dentists and orthodontists in the U.S. are certified to treat patients with Invisalign, Dr. Engelmann has earned Preferred Provider status with Invisalign, which means she has a significant level of experience treating patients with Invisalign clear braces. You can receive a complimentary consultation at our Leawood dental office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. We’re located just west of Mission Road at 133rd Street.
What is Invisalign and how does it work?
While it isn’t magic that makes Invisalign work it is amazing. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable ‘aligners’ to straighten your smile. No more metal braces. The best part of Invisalign is that no one can tell you're wearing them! Using precise 3-D computer imaging technology Invisalign creates aligners designed to move your teeth according to a very precise plan.
Prior to beginning you can view your own virtual treatment so you can see how your teeth will look when your treatment is complete. Each set of aligners is worn around the clock for about two weeks, removing them only when you eat and when you brush and floss. Your teeth will gradually move until they have straightened to their final positions outlined at the beginning of your treatment. You'll visit once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned and to receive your next aligners. Treatment typically lasts for nine to fifteen months depending on the condition of your teeth and your goals.
