Considering Invisalign near Hendersonville? We see our patients through the process
Millions of people would like to improve their smiles, but most would prefer not to have metal brackets and wires cover their teeth for one to two years. Orthodontic treatment has evolved quite a bit in recent decades. Though some instances are still best served with conventional orthodontics, many people are finding that their smile concerns can be easily handled with Invisalign.
Invisalign has been popular from the moment patients first reported positive results. The aligner method, using strong plastic trays that are barely perceptible, is viewed as the modern-day solution to crooked, crowded teeth. Invisalign is not only more discreet, but also more comfortable and more convenient than conventional braces. Throughout the six to eighteen months of the typical treatment plan, the smile is fully visible through clear plastic trays. Straightening teeth with removable aligner trays allows patients to maintain their normal dietary habits, and take excellent care of their teeth and gums without the obstacles of brackets and wires.
Improving the smile with Invisalign is easy. We help our patients from Hendersonville and surrounding areas through the process with personalized care.
Winning results through teamwork
Behind every smile transformation is a team dedicated to optimal results. Your dentist at Asheville Smile Center will consult with you before treatment to hear your concerns and discuss suitable options for smile enhancement. Our focus is to help you achieve your smile goals. Based on specific needs, each Invisalign treatment plan is devised and followed up by our professional team. Your commitment to your smile, and the course of treatment outlined for you, is where the power lies. You maintain proper wear and you ensure you are taking good care of your teeth and gums through excellent hygiene. For your efforts, you will be rewarded with a gorgeous smile.
Persistence pays off
Correcting misalignment and bite issues takes time. The process is not one that we rush. Fortunately, the materials and method behind Invisalign leads to comfortable treatment that is easily tolerated. There is no "metal mouth" affecting your sense of confidence, only gentle pressure applied by discreet aligners, leading you to your best smile. Each set of aligners designed in the Invisalign lab will address specific teeth, prompting just the right movement for ideal alignment. Upon the completion of your treatment plan, you will have the smile you have long desired. The straightening process is, however, just a step towards lifelong beauty.
Ensuring a return on your investment
Undergoing orthodontic treatment, even with convenient, comfortable Invisalign, is an investment into your smile. Where you have invested, you want long-lasting returns. To maintain the results of Invisalign teeth straightening, your dentist will design a comfortable retainer that suits your lifestyle. Some retainers are fitted behind the teeth, where they are a permanent fixture. Others feature a wire that runs in front of teeth, and are removable. The proper wear of a retainer is vital to maintain alignment. Your dentist will help you determine the best retainer to keep teeth in their new position.

- Lisa S. Best dentist experience I've ever had! Everyone is incredibly nice and personable. It's evident that this isn't just work for the employees, but an enjoyable place to be. I was very impressed with how well they communicated with one another and worked diligently to personalize the experience for me and other customers. I wasn't just another mouth to clean, but a person who they wanted to get to know, and I still came out of there with an exceptional cleaning and more knowledge about my dental hygiene than when I came in. I'm so thankful for their wonderful work and service, not to mention the two freshly baked cookies on my way out!
