Fully Customized “Invisible Braces” in Austin, TX
The World’s Most Advanced Clear Aligners
Our team uses a state-of-the-art 3D imaging scanner that can digitally map your teeth in a matter of minutes. The iTero scanner was developed specifically for Invisalign, meaning that it was designed to work seamlessly with our molding process.
Benefits of Custom Aligners
At 6,000 images per second, our 3D imaging tech means that we rarely have to rescan your teeth, making the process quick and relatively painless.
Unlike traditional molds, we don’t use any goop, so you won’t feel like you are gagging and have a bad residual taste in your mouth.
The iTero scanner produces a hi-res simulation of what your smile will look like after treatment is complete.
Our cutting-edge equipment will faithfully track your progress at every appointment.
How Custom Invisalign Aligners are Made
The iTero Element® scanner quickly and precisely catalogs your teeth, creating a detailed 3D image that we use to create your aligners.
Invisalign has developed a unique material that is specifically designed for teeth straightening. SmartTrack® was engineered by some of the smartest minds in dental tech to ensure that your aligners are safe, durable and comfortable.
Trimmed to Perfection
All of your aligners will be custom trimmed to match your unique gumline.
Once your aligners have been scanned, molded and trimmed, our expert team does a final check to ensure that your aligner is safe, comfortable and fits correctly.
Benefits of Choosing Invisalign
Invisalign straightens teeth nearly 50% faster than other major clear aligners. Technological advantages like our SmartTrack® material and iTero Element® scanner allow us to quickly and efficiently straighten your teeth. Weekly aligner changes, compared with two-week aligner wear, will ensure that you see fast, safe results.
Invisalign’s SmartTrack® material is one of the core reasons that you can count on our clear aligners to fit comfortably and apply a consistent, gentle force. Unlike traditional metal braces and other clear aligners, you won’t have to dread getting your braces tightened or the discomfort experienced when breaking in the next set of off-brand aligners. Each new set of Invisalign clear aligners will gradually and gently guide your teeth into the desired position.
Easy To Clean
Invisalign aligners can be removed whenever you need to brush or eat. One of the major complaints of traditional metal braces is food getting stuck in between the wires and brackets. By being able to remove your clear aligner, you can easily maintain your regular brushing routine and protect your oral health.
By utilizing 3D scanners and custom aligners, we can ensure greater control over the straightening process. This mitigates any unpredictability with tooth movement, over the course of the process, and allows our team to more easily adjust your treatment accordingly.
Your aligners can be customized with our SmartForce® attachments that allow our team to implement more complex tooth movements and apply precise, targeted force.
Mandibular Advancement Feature
Correcting overbites with Invisalign clear aligners has become a routine task by adding mandibular advancement precision wings to your aligners. The wings are built into the custom mold and work to gradually push your jaw forward, aligning your upper and lower jaw. Unlike the bulky appliances and rubber bands of traditional braces, our Invisalign precision wings are comfortable and virtually undetectable.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The cost of Invisalign can vary depending on each patient’s unique needs, however, there are a number of options that can make our clear aligners affordable on most budgets. Many dental insurance plans will cover part of the cost and can significantly reduce the overall cost.
Paying for Invisalign with Insurance
Invisalign’s cost is similar to that of traditional braces. In many cases where insurance would cover braces, it will also cover the cost (or some of the cost) of the Invisalign treatment. Depending on your insurance, you could save thousands of dollars and the bulk of the total cost of Invisalign.
Saving on Taxes
Flexible savings accounts or FSAs can be a good option for mitigating the cost of Invisalign. An FSA will allow you to save money over time and will offer significant tax deductions on those savings. HSAs or health savings accounts can also be a good option for taking advantage of reduced tax benefits.
Monthly payments can be a viable option for financing Invisalign. Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry is proud to offer financing through programs like Care Credit and Lending Club Financial. Many of these plans provide interest-free options, provided that you pay off your balance within the predetermined time frame.
In-House Dental Insurance
For just $29 a month, you can take advantage of our in-house dental insurance plan. For Invisalign, this means that you get 15% off of all dental procedures, which will significantly reduce the overall cost of your Invisalign treatment.
