Invisalign® in Grand Rapids
Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces, using a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.Forget everything you've heard about teeth straightening. Because now there's breakthrough technology that lets you get the smile you always wanted. You wear each set of clear aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. No tedious use of floss threaders to get between each set of teeth is required to floss as with traditional braces.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move- little by little, week by week- until they have straightened to the final position which Dr. Zwier has prescribed. You'll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Invisible and comfortable Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution. So you won't draw undue attention to your mouth while in treatment. In fact, do not be surprised if no one even notices you are wearing them. They are unobtrusive in business meetings or social gatherings.
We have had leaders speak in front of thousands, and singers perform with them in. Invisalign helps you look your best during treatment while your teeth are being moved to their healthiest, most esthetic position to give you the smile you have always wanted. You will have no metal wires or brackets to show or to irritate your mouth.
Is Invisalign for me? Dr. Zwier is one of the early adapters and certified users of Invisalign. He has used Invisalign to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustment, Dr. Zwier can use Invisalign to help. He has been successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. Using it, he can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites and even crossbites.
How does Invisalign work? Dr. Zwier utilizes 3D computer imaging technology to demonstrat the complete treatment plan from the initial postion to the final desired postion. This imaging technology is then used to design an individualized series of custon-made aligners. The patient wears the aligner for about two weeks while the teeth move incrementally. After two weeks, the current aligner is replaced with the next one until the final position is achieved.
How much does Invisalign cost? It takes a free consultation for Dr. Zwier to give you an estimate of the cost. Typically the cost is $4400, but depending on your case and the options you choose, our patients are eligible for rebates and discounts of up to $1100 off that price. Does insurance cover Invisalign? Yes. Any insurance plan that covers orthodontics will cover Invisalign.
