Industry leading technology means that Invisalign's clear aligners can straighten your teeth discreetly, without bulky metal braces. But how are Invisalign aligners made? Our Langley Straight Smile dentists explain.
Every Invisalign clear aligner is created using industry-leading technology based on your detailed scans and customized treatment plan.
Precise & Personal
At your Invisalign consultation, your dentist will take detailed 3D scans of your teeth, mouth and jaw using the state of the art iTero Scanner. The iTero scanner means that you won't need to endure the goopy mess of creating traditional plaster molds of your teeth.
iTero takes an amazing 6000 images per second when scanning your teeth. Giving your dentist and the Invisalign technicians a high-resolution, interactive, image of your teeth.
ClinCheck software allows your dentist to map out the path to your new smile, right down to the tiniest tooth movement, from your first aligner to your new straighter smile.
The ClinCheck 3D visual interface gives your dentist the ability to customize your treatment.
Algorithms help to calculate just the right amount of force to facilitate each tooth movement. Your dentist uses Invisalign's ClinCheck software, to help ensure that every tooth will be moved in the right order and at the right time.
Your scans and personalized treatment plan are sent to the Invisalign manufacturing facility where every aligner is custom made to gradually move your teeth into their desired positions. With Invisalign, each aligner is unique, designed specifically to shift only targeted teeth, and is based on your personalized treatment plan.
Created with Your Comfort in Mind
Every one of your Invisalign aligners is created with your comfort in mind. Your aligners are made from Invisalign's specially engineered SmartTrack material. SmartTrack was designed to give Invisalign aligners a great fit, as well as improved comfort and effectiveness. SmartTrack also helps to make Invisalign aligners easy to remove and put back in place.
Every person's gumline is unique. That's why each Invisalign aligner in your treatment series is individually trimmed to help your aligners fit, look, and feel better.
Inspected for Quality
Your smile is our passion, that's why every one of your Invisalign aligners will examined to meet the high quality standards of Invisalign.
Checked for Fit
Once your aligners are ready they will be sent to your dentist. When you drop by your dentist's office to pickup your aligners your dentist will take the time to ensure that your aligners fit correctly, as well as review your treatment plan and answer any questions you may have about your Invisalign treatment.
