Invisalign is an ideal solution for those individuals who have always wanted straight teeth without the hassle of traditional braces. Using the latest technology from Align, Dr. Hopkins can straighten your teeth in 12 to 18 months or less, without anyone realizing! Geared especially for adults and teenagers, Invisalign gently repositions your teeth using a series of thin, clear plastic aligners. You will have to tell people you're wearing them, because they will never notice!
Invisalign is perfect for professionals who understand that their smile is their greatest asset. Unlike traditional braces which consist of many components and require many visits, you'll only need to change your aligners every two weeks, and visit our office once every six weeks. Your aligners can also double as take home whitening trays, allowing you to simultaneously achieve a white, bright smile at the same time!
Invisalign comes to us from Align Technologies, a California based corporation. When you decide to undergo Invisalign treatment, you will come into our office for a series of impressions and xrays. We then send them via UPS to California, where they will literally perform an MRI on your impressions to make a 3D, computerized version of your teeth. Once that is complete, they will send those images to their scientific laboratory in Costa Rica, where they will use advanced software to project the movement of your teeth and the steps necessary to reach the desired result. The technicians in Costa Rica then send the computerized scans to Dr. Hopkins. He reviews them and makes any changes necessary. Once Dr. Hopkins approves of the treatment, the records are sent to Juarez, Mexico.
Juarez, Mexico is a large manufacturing community which is home to many companies such as Johnson and Johnson, General Electric and Honeywell. In Juarez the aligners are manufactured. The process is fascinating, if you would like more information on this, please call the office to request an informational DVD. From Mexico, the aligners are shipped here to Dr. Hopkins and delivered to you, the patient!
Dr. Hopkins is an Invisalign Premier Provider, and has treated many Invisalign patients since the process became available. If you would like more information on Invisalign, please request our FREE Report or call the office at the below numbers. Come see if Invisalign is right for you!
