The digital scan of your teeth will be turned into a computerised 3D representation by Invisalign. Based on your Dentist’s treatment plan, the Invisalign team will show how your teeth will change during the program and what results you can expect.
Once your treatment plan has been agreed upon, the clear aligners are made by Invisalign. The number of aligners needed will depend on your individual needs and how much tooth movement is required to create your ideal smile.
