Hardy Smiles Invisalign

Transform Your Smile with Invisalign Clear Aligners

A beautiful, confident smile can change your life. After all, not only will it boost your confidence, but it will also improve your overall well-being. That’s why Dr. James Hardy and the team at Hardy Smiles offer Invisalign clear aligners.

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic alternative to traditional metal braces that allows you to straighten your teeth discreetly and comfortably. We are committed to helping you achieve the smile of your dreams with personalized care and state-of-the-art technology.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners are an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces.

These aligners are made from a special, transparent plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. Custom-made for each patient, Invisalign aligners gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions using a series of removable trays.

This method is not only effective but also fits seamlessly into your lifestyle, allowing you to straighten your teeth without the noticeable appearance of braces.

The Invisalign Advantage

Choosing Invisalign over traditional braces comes with numerous benefits, making it a popular choice among teens and adults alike. Here are some key advantages:

Discreet and Aesthetic

One of the most significant advantages of Invisalign is its near-invisibility. The clear aligners are difficult to notice, which means you can smile, speak, and socialize with confidence throughout your treatment. This is particularly appealing for professionals and individuals who are self-conscious about wearing braces.

Comfortable and Gentle

Invisalign aligners are crafted from smooth, BPA-free plastic, ensuring a comfortable fit without the irritation that can come from metal brackets and wires. Each aligner is custom-made to fit your teeth, minimizing discomfort and allowing for a more pleasant orthodontic experience.

Removable and Convenient

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. This means you can take them out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. You won’t need to worry about food restrictions or complicated cleaning routines. Simply remove the aligners, enjoy your meal, and brush and floss as usual before putting them back in.

Predictable and Efficient

Invisalign uses advanced 3D imaging technology to create a detailed, customized treatment plan. This technology allows us to map out the exact movements of your teeth and predict the length of your treatment. Typically, patients complete their Invisalign treatment in 12 to 18 months, with noticeable improvements often seen in just a few months.

Fewer Office Visits

With Invisalign, you’ll spend less time at the dentist’s office. Traditional braces require frequent adjustments, but Invisalign typically requires visits every six to eight weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. This makes it easier to fit your orthodontic care into a busy schedule.

The Invisalign Process at Hardy Smiles

There are several steps in the Invisalign process, which takes an average of 12 months:

Initial Consultation

Your journey to a straighter smile begins with a comprehensive consultation at Hardy Smiles. During this visit, Dr. Hardy will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and discuss your orthodontic goals. We’ll take digital scans or impressions of your teeth to determine if Invisalign is the right solution for you.

Custom Treatment Plan

If Invisalign is a good fit for your needs, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan using advanced 3D imaging technology. This digital model will show the current position of your teeth and the projected movement at each stage of the treatment. You’ll even get a preview of your new smile!

Receiving Your Aligners

Once your custom aligners are ready, we’ll provide you with a series of aligner sets. You’ll wear each set for about two weeks, only removing them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you progress through the sets, your teeth will gradually move into their new positions.

Regular Check-Ups

Throughout your treatment, you’ll visit Hardy Smiles every six to eight weeks for check-ups. During these visits, Dr. Hardy will monitor your progress, ensure that your teeth are moving as planned, and provide you with your next sets of aligners. These appointments are quick and convenient, allowing you to get back to your daily activities with minimal disruption.

Completing Your Treatment

After you’ve completed your series of aligners, you’ll likely need to wear a retainer to maintain your new smile. Retainers are crucial for preventing your teeth from shifting back to their original positions. Dr. Hardy will provide you with detailed instructions on retainer use and care to ensure your beautiful results last a lifetime.
