INVISALIGN

Braces apply a gentle, constant pressure to your teeth to encourage them to move, little by little over time to bring them in to alignment and make an enormous difference to the overall look of your smile and bite.

Teeth straightening used to take 2 years to complete, but here at our clinic in Lima, Peru we can offer alternatives for orthodontics and teeth alignment. Simple teeth straightening can be completed in just a few short weeks using modern cosmetic techniques. For more challenging cases, some months with braces may be necessary and for invisible braces that blend with the natural look of your teeth, the patient must be aware that these can take some additional time.

With our superb orthodontist, Dr Rony de la Flor, we see excellent results with the technologically advanced Damon 3 system which offers both traditional braces and also a clear, esthetic alternative as can be seen in the photo below.

However, each case is different and can be resolved in different ways, sometimes combining different treatments together to enhance the process. For example, for larger gaps in between teeth, the teeth can be moved a little closer together and then a veneer can be added to cover the remaining gap on either side of the tooth, completing the procedure and giving an overall aesthetically outstanding result and new look to our patients smile.

Invisalign - A Clear Alternative 

By using a series of custom made, clear removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Changing the aligners about every 2 weeks, your teeth will move—little by little, week by week—until they have moved to the final position. Comfortable to wear, our aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.

Invisible & Comfortable!

Because Invisalign uses comfortable plastic aligners to move teeth, you can continue enjoying your active lifestyle even during treatment and because Invisalign is nearly invisible, most people won’t know you are straightening your teeth unless you tell them.

Step 1

During your initial visit to Dr Yuen, you will be able to decide on the treatment course that suits you best. We will take bite impressions of your teeth and send them to Invisalign for processing.

Step 2

Invisalign uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to transform your bite impressions in to a series of custom made, clear and removable aligners. You will receive your first set of aligners in just a few weeks.

Step 3

Each Invisalign aligner will be worn day and night for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. A typical patient should expect to complete treatment in roughly 1 year.

Step 4

Congratulations! Your treatment is complete when you have finished wearing each aligner in the series and you will have beautiful, aligned teeth just how you always wanted them.

We offer alternative braces for teeth straightening and our specialist orthodontist will decide which system is best for you during a consultation and diagnosis.
