Schedule your first visit to our Zachary office to experience a simple and time-efficient first step.
1. Come in for Your Smile Consultation
- At your first free consultation, Dr. White will sit down with you and assess the current state of your teeth and listen to the results you want.
- We’ll also discuss your financial needs to make sure your treatment fits your budget.
- If Dr. White determines that Invisalign is the best solution to help you get the smile you want, we’ll sit down with you to discuss the financial options and treatment plans that best fit your situation.
2. Make a Plan
- Our Smile Studio team will take digital images and X-rays of your teeth and use these to create your treatment plan.
- Using a computerized program, we’ll design a personalized series of clear, comfortable, removable aligners that will shift your teeth in stages towards a beautifully straight smile.
- Dr. White precisely designs each set of Invisalign trays to adjust your teeth to a predetermined location. You can even see a digital projection of your final results before starting treatment.
3. Wear Your Almost-Invisible Braces
- After receiving your Invisalign aligners, you should wear them as much as possible, but you can easily remove them for eating, flossing, and brushing.
- You’ll come into Smile Studio for check-ups about every four to six weeks to get your new sets of aligners, and so Dr. White can check the progress of your teeth.
- These checkups are quick and painless since you won’t have any wires to check or tighten.
A Modern Approach
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth. It uses a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you.
These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth.
Wearing the aligners will gently move your teeth into place little by little, based on the exact movements Dr. White plans for you.
There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten with the Invisalign system. You pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks until your treatment is complete.
At Smile Studio, you can get a great smile without a treatment that gets in the way of your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people around Zachary won’t even know you’re in treatment!
Invisalign has vastly improved over the years and can be used to handle various simple and complex cases. From crowding to spacing, underbite to overbite, Dr. White can use Invisalign can help you reach your ideal smile.
Dr. White has a lot of experience treating people with Invisalign, and we’re excited to offer this technology to our Zachary braces patients.
Teens Love Invisalign
At Smile Studio, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth, and Invisalign helps Dr. White do that.
Whether you’re a musician, an athlete, a thespian, class president, or anything else, you’ll be able to participate in all your activities without the barrier that traditional braces might present.
And, since Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic and almost invisible, your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them.
As a teenager, you should be able to participate in the activities you’re interested in while still having the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories.
You should also be able to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
Invisalign helps you focus on doing what you do best—being yourself. At your initial consultation with Dr. White, you’ll find out how Invisalign can be a good fit for your smile and lifestyle!
Designed for Little Smiles
Kids in Zachary and the surrounding areas can now get comfortable and clear results with Invisalign® treatment at Smile Studio.
About Invisalign First
In 2018, Invisalign released a clear aligner system designed for patients ages 7-10 years old called Invisalign First or Invisalign First Phase.
Dr. White can use Invisalign clear aligners to create predictable results and a positive experience for your child while addressing their unique needs.
Invisalign First at Smile Studio can help treat:
- Aesthetic alignment
- A bad bite
- Arch development
- Preserving space for un-erupted permanent teeth
Using Invisalign for Kids in Phase 1 Treatment
As your child grows up, their smile grows with them. Even with baby teeth, it may be the perfect time for children ages 6 to 10 to start orthodontic treatment at Smile Studio.
This is known as Phase 1 treatment. At this stage, orthodontists like Dr. White can see issues that may need early treatment to address a developing problem.
Benefits of Invisalign First
A Simple Start
Invisalign First treatment starts with a simple digital scan (no goopy impressions).
Every step of your child's plan is plotted digitally so you know what to expect.
A Better Experience
There's not much interruption to your child's life with removable aligners. They can even continue to eat foods that they love.
Plus, the aligners are specifically designed to fit smaller teeth and include space to accommodate teeth that are growing in.
Made for Every Smile
Invisalign First clear aligners can fix a wide range of issues, including crowding, spacing, and narrow dental arches.
Keep Your Hygiene Routine
Growing children can continue to brush and floss without the hassle and keep their good hygiene habits on track.
Differences Between Braces & Invisalign
When it comes to Invisalign treatment, there's a lot to consider. Most Invisalign patients at Smile Studio enjoy shorter checkups, fewer appointments, simpler oral hygiene, and fewer emergency visits.
However, the system's biggest pro can also be a con: the aligners are removable. Your cooperation is essential, whether you have braces or Invisalign.
Since braces are attached to your teeth, they do the heavy lifting to keep your treatment progressing. With Invisalign, you need to do a little extra work so your trays can complete your treatment.
You'll need to manage your wear-time, keep your aligners clean, and swap them out for the next aligner in the series.
You need to be sure that you can do this before committing to Invisalign treatment.
Like traditional metal braces, Dr. White recommends wearing a retainer after your Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment and confident new smile.
