A Clear Path to a Straighter Smile

At CRE8 Smile Studio, we believe that a straighter smile leads to a happier life. With Invisalign® clear aligners, achieving your dream smile is easier and more discreet than ever before.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Perfect for adults and teens, Invisalign® offers an almost invisible aligning system that fits the demands of your lifestyle.

Why Choose Invisalign®?

      • Virtually Invisible: Clear aligners are barely noticeable, allowing you to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
      • Removable: Easily remove the aligners to enjoy all your favorite foods and maintain your dental hygiene routine.
      • Comfortable: Customized to fit your teeth and mouth, Invisalign® aligners are smooth and comfortable with no risk of irritating your gums or cheeks.
      • Effective: Invisalign® is effective in treating a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite, and underbite.

    The Invisalign® Treatment Process

      1. Consultation: Start with a consultation with Dr. Prater, who will assess your smile and determine if Invisalign® is the right option for you.
      2. Custom Plan: We use 3D computer imaging technology to design a complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.
      3. Receive Aligners: You’ll receive a series of custom aligners to wear every day, changing them at home every few weeks as directed.
      4. Progress Tracking: Regular check-ins at CRE8 Smile Studio will ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.

    How Long Does Treatment Take?

    The duration of your Invisalign® treatment depends on the complexity of your case and how often you wear your aligners. On average, treatment takes anywhere from 6 to 18 months.

    Taking Care of Your Aligners

    Taking care of your Invisalign® aligners is simple. Remove them to eat, drink anything other than water, and for brushing and flossing. Clean your aligners daily with the Invisalign® cleaning system or by brushing and rinsing them in lukewarm water.

    Am I a Candidate for Invisalign®?

    Invisalign® is suitable for most teens and adults seeking a straighter smile. Whether you’re looking to improve your smile’s appearance or correct orthodontic issues, Invisalign® may be the ideal solution.

    Invisalign® aligners apply controlled pressure to your teeth, gradually moving them into alignment over time. Each set of aligners is worn for about 1-2 weeks before moving on to the next in the series, slowly shifting your teeth toward their final positions.

    The length of treatment depends on the complexity of your case and can only be determined by your dentist. On average, Invisalign® treatment can take anywhere from 6 to 18 months.

    Invisalign® aligners may cause some initial discomfort when a new aligner is first put in place. This discomfort typically fades as your teeth adjust to the new aligner.

    You should remove your Invisalign® aligners when eating and drinking anything other than water. This prevents staining of the aligners and also maintains oral hygiene.

    For best results, you should wear your Invisalign® aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. They should be removed only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.

    Some people may notice a slight lisp when they first wear Invisalign® aligners, but this typically disappears as you become accustomed to wearing them.

    Unlike traditional braces, there are no restrictions on what you can eat because you remove the aligners before eating. However, it’s important to brush your teeth before reinserting the aligners to maintain oral hygiene.

    Clean your Invisalign® aligners daily with a soft toothbrush and lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water, which can warp the plastic. Invisalign® cleaning crystals or tablets can also be used for a deeper clean.
