INVISALIGN

INVISALIGN was founded in 1999.

Over 3 millions patients have been treated today with this technique. We are certified Invisalign provider since 2001.

 

We are "gold" certified since 2012, "platinium" since 2014 and "platinium elite" since 2016 .

 

We have treated and have in treatment over 800 patients using this technique and have the most experience along "la Côte".

Advantages : 

  • Less painful than any braces

  • Almost invisible

  • No food restriction

  • No emergencies because of loose or broken brackets.

Disadvantages :

  • Not all treatments are possible

  • You have to wear them 22 hours out of 24 hours

Discipline is mandatory. Lack of wear does not result in slowed treatment but in failure.

 

Cost : INVISALIGN has almost the same price as labial braces. Our volume of traitement allows us to reduce the price.

The result of teeth whitening is impressive.

We do not offer teeth whitening in itself.

BUT the Invisalign aligners allow to do it easily. You just have to add the gel inside the aligners.

Therefore solely for Invisalign treatment we can provide you at a low cost with the necessary gel.

It is recommended to do the whitening at the end of the Invisalign treatment.

Here the shade difference obtained with one of our patients(2 series of applications).

Teenager with serious alignment problems:

 

 

 

Duration of treatment: Same as braces.

Upper jaw:

The midline of teeth is not concomittant with the jaw and face. The teeth have to be moved and thus give the possibility to align the canine(blue arrows):

Lower jaw:

Same as upper. Midline has to be moved and canine will have space to align(blue arrows)

In addition to what is above the patient has a deep bite:

   The upper and lower incisors overlap too much.

Parodontosis is a risk at later age.

Upper incisors have to go up and lower down.

Canines will be moved as mentioned above

For an unknown reason colors of these 3 pictures are wrong

The patient above wears Invisalign.

Is it visible? Barely.

For some older patients it is simply a matter to be able to keep their teeth:

Tooth cleaning and dental hygien are impossible. All the front teeth are mobile and have bone loss(parodontosis).

 

The treatment will allow to save the teeth and improve the smile.

The orthodontic treatment is finished.

Permanent retention is placed behind the front teeth.

The replacement of missing teeth as well as change of old fillings can begin.

Patient will decide placement of veneers/crowns on the front teeth.

Treatment is finished:

Alignement corrected, deep bite corrected.

Result is perfect.
