Designing Your New Smile
If you and Dr. Fox agree that Invisalign is the right treatment for you, you’ll schedule an appointment to design your new smile.
First, Dr. Fox and/or his assistant will get a digital 3D scan of your teeth. This is a simple process, and it only takes a few minutes. You don’t have to bite down into impression material and hold still, just hold your mouth open. It doesn’t even have to be open for a long time.
Once we have the 3D model, the Align software lets us preview and adjust the final desired positions for your teeth. You’ll get a good look at what your final results will look like.
Once we’re happy with the design, we send it to Align. There, they will break the tooth movements down into individual steps, and the company will create a custom aligner for you to achieve that step. It takes from 2-6 weeks to create your aligners, depending on how busy the company is.
