Trust Dr. Alvarez for teeth straightening ...
If you have always wanted that straight, beautiful smile, without the metal wires of traditional orthodontics and braces, then choose Dr. Edward Alvarez. First certified by Invisalign® in 2002, Dr. Alvarez has been creating beautiful smiles with clear aligner therapy in our Manhattan, New York City office for over a decade and a half. Both Invisalign®, and ClearCorrect are great choices when choosing to straighten your teeth without braces.
What is Invisalign®? What is ClearCorrect? What is clear aligner therapy?
Invisalign® or ClearCorrect clear aligners are both wonderful choices to straighten your teeth.
What is the process?
In order to fabricate aligners for teeth straightening, Dr. Alvarez will take a digital scan of your teeth, digital x-rays, and digital photographs of your face. That information is then sent via secure internet from our Manhattan, New York City office to either Align Technology, who makes Invisalign®, or Straumann, who makes ClearCorrect. A digital 3-D model and computer simulation will then be created, on which Dr. Alvarez will design your new smile. After a few weeks in production, the aligners will be shipped to our office.
Once we receive your aligners, we will again meet with you to make sure there is an accurate fit, as well as to give you clear instructions on the use of your new clear aligners. Each aligner, or "tray" is worn by a patient for 18-22 hours per day. Trays are changed anywhere from every 1-3 weeks, depending on the system and your individual case. Most clear aligner cases are completed in an average time of 12-14 months, but can be as little as 3-6 months, depending on how much correction is necessary.
How do clear aligners compare to traditional braces?
Both traditional braces and Invisalign® or ClearCorrect will give you virtually the same cosmetic results. Clear aligner therapy can give you the beautiful, straight smile you have always wanted.
