Dr. Ruth Bailey and her staff are simply 'the best'.  I've lived in nineteen different cities in the country and have had roughly nineteen different dentists.  Dr. Bailey tops them all!!  Her office is friendly, professional, reasonable and extremely efficient.  Everyone has a smile and treats you as if you were family and, indeed, that's how you feel when you're there.  I highly recommend them!!!!

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign gradually brings teeth into alignment with a series of removable, clear aligners. The aligners are made of clear plastic and are custom-manufactured for each unique patient by a certified Invisalign lab. Because the aligner trays are designed based on an exact model of your bite, they fit snugly over your teeth. The aligners apply mild pressure to move your teeth and incrementally straighten your smile.

Invisalign Timeline

On average, Invisalign treatment takes between 12 and 18 months.
On average, Invisalign treatment takes between 12 and 18 months.

Consultation

To begin the Invisalign process, schedule a consultation at our dental office in Knoxville, TN. During this consultation, our dentists will examine your teeth and make a digital model of your bite with our Itero digital scanner (you don't have to worry about messy impressions with dental putty). We can show you a model of what your teeth will look like after treatment, as well as go over details like timeframe and cost

Manufacturing the Aligners

If you and our dentists agree that clear aligners are the best orthodontic option for you, we will send the model of your bite to an Invisalign lab so they can precisely fabricate your series of trays. Your new aligners should arrive at our office or your home within a few weeks.

Wearing the Aligners

Now the real treatment begins. You will begin wearing your clear aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. You will switch from one set of aligners to the next in your series approximately every two weeks. If you commit to wearing your aligners for the recommended amount of time and follow our dentists' instructions, you should see your smile gradually become straighter.

Periodic Checkups

During the time you are wearing your aligners (which usually lasts between 12 and 18 months), we will ask you to periodically return to our dental office in Knoxville, TN, so we can monitor your progress.

Smile!

At the end of your treatment timeline, you will have straight teeth and an attractive, confident smile. To maintain your results, we usually recommend wearing some kind of retainer at night. Many patients choose to wear their final set of clear aligners as a retainer.

Invisalign Cost

At Cosmetic Dentistry of Knoxville, orthodontic treatment with Invisalign will cost you somewhere between $800 and $4,500. Prices vary so widely because every patient's smile is different. If your teeth are more misaligned, then you will require more sets of aligners, and therefore your treatment costs will be higher.

Our office will take every measure to make Invisalign as affordable as possible for you. Some dental insurance plans will cover part of the cost of treatment, so we will help you review your coverage and make sure you are taking advantage of every available benefit. Also, we offer several different payment and financing options that can allow to break up your treatment cost into manageable monthly payments.
