Invisalign in Spring Valley

If you’re thinking about orthodontic dentistry at a Spring Valley dentist, Dr. Quinn and Dr. Mitchell of Smiles for Life Family Dentistry are both wonderful choices. At our Las Vegas family dental practice, we offer Invisalign to Spring Valley, Summerlin, and the surrounding areas.


What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic solution that uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to gradually shift the teeth into a straightened position. It’s similar to Clear Correct and other clear aligner options.

In contrast to traditional braces, which use wires, cemented metal brackets, and rubber bands to shift teeth, Invisalign offers a subtle route to a more attractive smile. Invisalign can offer similar results as metal braces, and in many cases, it’s a faster treatment option. Fast, nearly invisible, and removable, Invisalign is popular option for adults who don’t want their treatment on display.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

The first step for treatment is to schedule a consultation with Smiles for Life. Dr. Quinn or Dr. Mitchell will examine your mouth and determine whether or not Invisalign is the right choice for orthodontic correction.

If you are a good candidate, impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to Invisalign, where your aligners will be built. Once completed, they are mailed to our offices and we give you a call when they’re ready.

When you come to pick them up, your doctor will ensure your first set fits correctly. From then on, it’s your job to make sure you wear your aligners for about 22 hours per day. They can be removed when eating and drinking, brushing and flossing, and playing contact sports, in some cases.

Every 2 weeks, you’ll switch to a new set of aligners. And every 6 weeks, you’ll come in for an examine so your doctor can track your progress.

Usually, patients require about 20-24 sets of aligners to completely straighten their teeth, so the typical treatment time is about a year. This will vary, depending on the patient.

The Benefits Of Invisalign

Invisalign has quite a few benefits, compared to traditional metal braces.

  • Nearly invisible – Invisalign is made of clear plastic, making it perfect if you want to get orthodontic treatment without everyone knowing about it.
  • Comfortable and convenient – Invisalign does not poke and prod your mouth like traditional braces, making it much more comfortable. The pressure exerted is also even and gradual, so there is less discomfort, compared to braces.
  • Removable – You can remove your Invisalign aligners to eat, drink, brush, floss, and more, unlike traditional metal braces.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the very best solution to replace one or more teeth. The only thing better would be a natural tooth. Dental implants are made of titanium but restored with a porcelain crown designed to look like natural teeth while also providing a great deal of strength and chewing capability. At Smiles for Life, we take extra measures to ensure not only your comfort, but the absolute highest success rate possible for our surgical procedures. We also employ CT imaging in our office which will tell us ahead of time exactly what size implant you’re able to tolerate and whether or not you have any unseen complications, thus lowering your surgical risk tremendously. Many more patients are able to receive dental implants thanks to our CT technology. Call today to see if you’re a candidate.


CEREC Crowns

We utilize the CEREC same-day crown technology in our office. This amazing technology allows us to use a 3D camera to scan your teeth instead of taking a messy impression. Then, take that scan and create your all porcelain crown while you wait! There are no more painful temporaries or second visits to get numb again. Whether you’re here on vacation, have a limited schedule, lack transportation or just simply don’t want to keep coming in, you’ve found the right office!


Invisalign / Clear Correct

At Smiles for Life we offer a multitude of cosmetic options for our patients including clear aligners. With these clear retainers, you no longer have to worry about the stigma and poor esthetics of metal braces. Clear aligner braces include a series of clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible and completely removable. You can eat what you want, drink what you want, and brush and floss more thoroughly to keep your dental health in optimal condition. Schedule a consultation today!
