The process to create your clear aligners will be simple, let us walk you through it.

Step #1: Photograph your mouth

The first step in the creation of your Invisalign aligners will be to capture photographs, an x ray and a digital scan of your mouth. This will give us everything we need to create your aligners, that means no messy molds or impressions!

Along with Dr. Bonvino’s treatment plan, the Invisalign technology is then used to create a virtual 3D model of your mouth. This model will then be used to create aligners for each step of your treatment as your teeth begin to move towards their final position.

Step #2: Aligners are created

From the 3D model of your mouth, your aligners will be created according to each stage of your treatment process. Each aligner is manufactured with a special plastic created just for Invisalign. This flexible, durable, and soft plastic allows for a comfortable feel within your mouth.

Step #3: Customization

By this point, your aligners are already completely custom to your teeth and mouth, but the customization continues. Invisalign looks at every details of your mouth based on your personal 3D images. Adjustments are made to ensure the best and most comfortable fit. Each aligner will be trimmed to follow your unique gumline.

Step #4: Quality check

The quality of your aligners will directly affect your smile results. Each of your aligners will be checked and held up to the highest quality standards. To us, nothing is more important than your smile!
