Treatment that Fits Your Life
Invisalign® treatment with Dr. Sheinis and the team at Shiney Smiles Orthodontics can give you beautiful straight teeth without braces.
The Invisalign Process
The Invisalign system straightens your smile using lightweight plastic aligners that fit over your teeth and are designed just for you. It’s easy to eat, drink, brush and floss because the aligners are completely removable.
Invisalign is much more comfortable than traditional metal bracket braces and can give you stunning results.
At your first free consultation at Shiney Smiles Orthodontics, we'll take photos and X-rays to create a 3D image of your mouth. We’ll use this to custom make your first set of aligners, so they fit you perfectly.
The trays will start straightening your teeth perfectly.
You wear the trays for about 22 hours a day but can remove them for brushing your teeth and eating.
You’ll probably wear Invisalign aligners for 9–15 months. Typically, you will use 18–30 sets during your treatment based on the treatment plan put in place by Dr. Sheinis.
You’ll start to notice a change in just a few months.
A Modern Approach
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth. It uses a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth.
Wearing the aligners will gently move your teeth into place little by little, based on the exact movements Dr. Sheinis plans for you.
With Invisalign treatment at Shiney Smiles Orthodontics, you don’t have to worry about metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks, until your treatment is complete.
At Shiney Smiles Orthodontics, you’ll get a great smile without a treatment that gets in the way of your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
This nearly-invisible option to straighten your teeth is truly changing the way people see orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Sheinis has a lot of experience treating patients with Invisalign, and we’re excited to offer this technology to our Huntington and Woodbury braces patients.
Differences Between Invisalign & Braces
Unlike traditional braces, smooth plastic Invisalign aligners don't have metal components that can irritate your mouth.
Because they’re removed when you eat, you won't have to watch what you eat like you would when wearing braces – bring on the popcorn and peanuts.
In fact, the aligners must be removed for eating and for drinking anything other than water. You need to make sure you’re willing to do that before you decide on Invisalign clear braces.
To prevent staining, you’ll need to clean your teeth before putting the aligners back on after each time you eat.
Of course, brushing and flossing are much easier than with traditional braces, since you don’t have to work around any brackets and wires.
Your treatment can only be successful if you follow all of Dr. Sheinis’s instructions. This includes wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours a day so they can do their job and straighten your teeth.
Like with traditional braces, you’ll generally need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
