Straight, well-aligned teeth make for a beautiful smile and are generally healthier and easier to care for. Orthodontic concerns (like overcrowding of the teeth or an uneven bite) could also result in long-term health conditions that might affect your ability to speak and eat normally, which could be more expensive to resolve. To help patients experience the advantages of an attractive, healthy grin, our team is thrilled to offer Invisalign aligners to residents in Cromwell, CT. Invisalign treatment repositions teeth through a sequence of clear, removable aligner trays, offering a more discreet appearance and a simple option over traditional metal braces. Explore whether Invisalign clear aligners are right for your treatment goals by setting up an appointment with our team at Preferred Dental of Cromwell.
"First time being here and I was completely satisfied. Doctors and hygienists were knowledgable and welcoming. Receptionists were very nice. Erica was super patient, gave info on the office, explained the process, and did a great job cleaning my teeth. Ellis did an amazing job on confidently removing my teeth gems that were needed to come off. Although, I was nervous they made sure I was happy with what I was walking out with. I will be returning and bringing my little one in as well. Thanks, guys!!"- V.M. / Google / Feb 09, 2024

"GO HERE FOR TEETH BLEACHING. I have been going to Preferred Dental of Cromwell for around 5-7 years now, and I just had one of the best experiences ever there just recently. I came in to replace a chipped tooth and eventually it turned into getting a teeth bleaching appointment with Ellis who was fantastic, explained everything very thoroughly and I had a pain-free appointment with amazing results. Shoutout to Dr. Meuiner and the whole staff, a very patient, cool team."- T.F. / Google / Jan 05, 2024
"Needed a cleaning done badly. My friend who recommended me here is a hygienist. Kaylee was really professional. I have really bad gums and she was very gentle! The areas that were inflamed; she would let me know I was gonna feel it. Other hygienist that I used to go to would attack my teeth so viciously. If you need a cleaning done, ask for Kaylee! I put 4 stars because I had an appointment that I made sure I was available. At some point, the week of I was informed I wasn’t on the schedule. I hit them up, and they said the system removed me. So I had to wait another month which was inconveniencing. Other than that it’s clean and everyone was professional."- E.G. / Google / Dec 08, 2023
Best Candidates for Invisalign
Patients who want a less obvious alternative to traditional braces might be prime candidates for Invisalign clear aligners. This choice can be suitable for treating dental malocclusion (an overbite, open bite, crossbite, or underbite), a narrow arch, overcrowded or crooked teeth, or gaps between teeth. Fixing such problems can lead to improved comfort, jaw function, and speaking and eating abilities. Invisalign aligners are also easier to remove from the mouth, permitting Cromwell, CT adults and teenagers to consume their favorite food items without restrictions and take care of their teeth without cumbersome appliances standing in the way. During your visit to Preferred Dental of Cromwell, a member of our team will take radiographs and provide an evaluation to help determine if Invisalign orthodontics are an ideal choice for your needs.
What to Expect
Invisalign orthodontics function via a custom series of clear removable aligners that steadily move your teeth into their desired place. To start your orthodontic care, a member of our Cromwell, CT team will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth, which will be sent to a designated laboratory where your unique teeth aligners will be created. After your aligners arrive at our practice, our team will ask you to return to try in your beginning pair and go over instructions on how to wear them. Your teeth aligners should be worn in your mouth for at least 20 – 22 hours every day and taken out only before brushing, flossing your teeth, eating snacks or meals, or drinking beverages. Approximately every 7 – 14 days, you will swap your current set of Invisalign trays for the next in succession. One of our team members will help you book regular follow-up check-ups at Preferred Dental of Cromwell so our skilled Invisalign provider can monitor your treatment progression.
The timeframe for Invisalign treatment will be based upon your personal goals and needs; however, most people typically wear their removable Invisalign aligners for about 12 – 24 months. When your Invisalign treatment is over, it is important to prevent your teeth from moving by wearing a set of custom retainers. Custom-made Vivera® retainers are developed with the same clear substance as the aligner trays and are individually engineered in the Invisalign lab. After they are delivered to Preferred Dental of Cromwell, our team will inform you how often to wear your retainers and ways to maintain them. Our team will consistently monitor the positioning of your teeth and your end result during your annual exams.
Invisalign orthodontics might be partially covered under select dental insurance policies. Before your visit, a member of our billing team can go over your policy and let you know about any outstanding orthodontic costs. Preferred Dental of Cromwell proudly takes an array of payment solutions, including flexible payment plans and medical financing, to help make orthodontic treatment more affordable and convenient for Cromwell, CT, individuals.
