What Can I Expect During the Consultation?

During your consultation, one of our dentists will examine and evaluate your smile to determine if Invisalign is right for you. By performing a visual check of your teeth and bite as well as reviewing dental x-rays, they will be able to craft a treatment plan based on your individual needs.

If you have a specific orthodontic problem (i.e. serious bite problem or major gap between your teeth), it might be in your best interest to pursue traditional braces, as you’ll most likely receive greater results. However, if the problem you’re experiencing (i.e. overcrowding, minor spaces between teeth, or a small bite alignment issue) is minimal, it may be possible for Invisalign to take care of the issue.

Before you leave your appointment, you can expect to learn about the process of receiving and wearing your aligners, how much you can expect to pay for your aligners, and you’ll have digital impressions taken of your smile, so dental lab technicians can craft your aligners.

It will be beneficial to check with your dental insurance company to find out if they will cover Invisalign treatment. While most plans do not, some are coming around to the idea of Invisalign as a necessary orthodontic solution. If insurance will not pay, our team will be happy to assist in helping you sign up for CareCredit, which is a third-party financier that offers low-to-no monthly interest in order to pay for your treatment using a payment plan.
