The Invisalign system is pretty straightforward. You will wear each aligner for about two weeks, and should only be removed to eat, drink, brush, or floss. Your teeth will move gradually until they reach their ideal positions as the aligners are replaced with the next one in the series.
We will check to make sure treatment is progressing as planned during your visits to Scott Edwards, DDS. Not changing aligners as scheduled or skipping your appointments can quickly undo any progress that’s been made. You need to change the aligners on time and wear them as directed. This is the most important element to success with your Memphis Invisalign. Your trays will be custom designed to fit your unique dental needs. They will need to be changed frequently in order to keep up with the shifting of the teeth as they begin to straighten.
The average treatment time tends to be somewhere between 6 and 18 months, this can vary widely from case to case. Treatment time depends significantly on patient compliance.
It’s important to remember that every patient will respond to orthodontic treatment differently. Invisalign works in a slightly different and less invasive way than braces to straighten the teeth. This means it can be hard to say with certainty how long a patient will need to wear them before seeing results.
The treatment time estimate is based on patients following the recommended guidelines. Any small deviation from this can add extra time to the overall process. Invisalign can only work if patients stick to the program. This means wearing aligners for at least 20-22 hours every single day, throughout the course of treatment.
Memphis Teeth Whitening
A smile is usually the first thing that you notice when you meet someone. What does your smile say about you? We love to whiten our patients' teeth because it is often the most conservative way to change tooth color.
We notice that patients who complete whitening treatment tend to take a greater role in their own oral health. Above all else, we want our patients to have the best oral health possible.
We also want them to confidently smile a smile they are proud to share! To help our patients have the whitest smiles possible, we offer several whitening options and will work with you to select the best teeth whitening method for your needs.
At-home whitening is ideal for people who would like to whiten their teeth on their own schedule. With this system, you’ll receive prescription gel and whitening trays, which are customized for your teeth for optimal results. Each day, you will load this gel into the trays and wear them for the recommended amount of time. The treatment time is usually about an hour, but each smile is unique, so follow the instructions provided by Dr. Scott Edwards, Dr.Julia Prince, and Dr. Kenny Groshart or a member of our team. You’ll be able to reach your whitest smile within two weeks of using this method.
Memphis Porcelain Veneers
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of ceramic that looks like natural enamel and is made to hide a chipped or otherwise damaged tooth. The materials used to create porcelain veneers are durable and stronger than real teeth. They can even reflect light in the same manner as unaltered teeth do so that a cosmetically enhanced tooth is indistinguishable from the rest. Dr. Scott Edwards, Dr.Julia Prince, of Dr. Kenny Groshart, can permanently place porcelain veneers to revitalize your smile.
