Your Las Vegas Certified Invisalign Preferred Provider
Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces. A consultation with Dr. Josh Whetten at Centennial Hills Orthodontics in Las Vegas, NV, (there has to be a comma after NV) can determine if Invisalign is right for you. We are proud to offer Invisalign to all Las Vegas communities, including Summerlin, Centennial, and North Las Vegas
Dr. Whetten has been improving smiles and changing lives with Invisalign for more than 10 years! As an Invisalign Preferred Provider, he has successfully completed numerous cases with Invisalign. Based on your lifestyle and orthodontic needs, it could be a great option for you and your smile!
What is it?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment,as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign, including Dr. Whetten!
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time at Centennial Hills Orthodontics getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see your expected outcome!
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. 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 Dr. Whetten has prescribed. You’ll visit our Las Vegas orthodontic practice about once every six to ten weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case.
During your consultation, Dr. Whetten will perform an oral exam, and take photos and X-rays to determine how we can best address your chief complaint, in addition to other factors that you may not recognize prior to coming into the office. We’ll then work together to come up with a treatment plan to meet all your smile goals.
