Teeth Straightening & Invisalign® Services in Lewiston, Maine | Tooth Straightening | Cosmetic Dentist Near Me

Ready to take a life step forward and get your teeth (or tooth) straightened out? We can take care of that no problem here at Aspire Family Dentistry. We offer a wide range of professional dental services and procedures that will leave your teeth straight and looking good. 

Choosing Invisalign® invisible braces is a gradual way to greatly improve the function and look of your smile. This option works for both adults and teens, and assists with issues like gap teeth, overbite, crowded teeth, underbite, crossbite, and other conditions, too.

Clear, hard-to-see Invisalign® braces are low impact when it comes to teeth straightening, correcting the angle of teeth over time. Made of plastic, these braces are comfortable, yet also very strong. 

Invisalign®’s invisible aligners are custom fitted to teeth using unique fixtures to align your new Invisalign® invisible braces. We adjust the aligners over time, gradually moving teeth to where they need to be to create a healthy overall bite (and smile!).

In more complicated cases where teeth need to be straightened, traditional places can still be the answer. Here at Aspire Family Dentistry, we’ll inspect and then discuss each specific situation, then together we come up with a tooth straightening plan of action.

How Long Does Invisalign® Take To Straighten Teeth?

Invisalign® teeth straightening occurs pretty much on your own watch, after we have everything installed and set up. Patients should have the aligners in place for 22 hours per day, including during sleep. The time span spent on Invisalign® invisible braces varies with the quickest schedule taking about five months.

Let’s get started on straightening your teeth and brightening your smile.

Invisalign Frequently Asked Questions

One of the benefits of Invisalign braces is that you can take them out to eat. However, if you do not wear them the recommended 22 hours per day, you will make them less effective. It will take longer to reach your alignment goals. It is important to wear your Invisalign Braces for as long as possible each day. We highly recommend not taking them out except when you eat and brush your teeth.

Some patients may want to skip a day because of a special event like a wedding. Your best course of action is to call and ask your Invisalign provider for their opinion. In many cases, a single day will not have a large effect but you shouldn’t make a habit of removing your braces for long periods of time. 

Invisalign Braces can be used by any patient who has had all of their adult teeth come-in. For most individuals this happens around ages 12-14. However, this can differ patient to patient. If you have questions about when you can start Invisalign, the best thing to do is set up a consultation with a local dentist.

Invisalign has a few key benefits. The first is in the name, Invisalign braces are nearly invisible when you are wearing them. Invisalign braces are also removable so you don’t have to worry about eating something that might brake your braces. Nor do you have to sacrifice good brushing and flossing habits because your braces get in the way. One of the other core benefits of Invisalign is how quickly and effectively they work. To find out if Invisalign is right for you, contact our dentists in Lewiston.

That depends on your insurance, and the best thing to do is contact them or visit their website. However, many insurances cover Invisalign the same way they cover other orthodontic procedures. Your insurance company may provide a percentage of coverage for the procedure or maybe a fixed amount. 

The cost of Invisalign differs from patient to patient. Generally speaking, Invisalign prices are described as comparable to traditional metal braces. However, specific factors will determine the full cost of  treatment for either procedure. An individual with a complex misalignment may need to pay more for their orthodontic treatment regardless of the solution they choose. Invisalign works by replacing and refining retainers over the course of the procedure. The number of sets you will go through is determined by how much shifting is necessary to align your smile. 

TMJ stands for Temporomandibular joint dysfunction. Individuals frequently feel jaw pain, experiencing clicking, or lock-jaw. This is due to inflammation in the jaw. The inflammation is caused by misalignment. Invisalign, like other orthodontic treatments, may decrease inflammation in the jaw by correcting your bite alignment. To learn more, please speak with your orthodontist or an Invisalign provider in your area. 

The core benefits of Invisalign Braces is that they are less disruptive to your everyday life. They are easy to use, easy to clean, and convenient overall. The time needed for Invisalign or traditional braces to work varies person to person. One thing that slows down the traditional braces process is when they are broken due to eating the wrong food. This requires an immediate orthodontic appointment to fix the damage. Because Invisalign braces are removable you are less likely to accidentally break them. That being said, if you do not wear your braces for the recommended 22 hours per day you may decrease their efficiency. 

In the event that you lose or break your braces, you should immediately call your Invisalign provider to get a replacement set. The faster you can get a replacement, the faster you can get back on track.

I had an unfortunate event (broken tooth) and a co-worker recommended Aspire. I couldn't be happier with the experience I have had - from the wonderful receptionist, amazing hygienist and ultimately Dr. Lee's mannerisms!! Everyone was so helpful, pleasant and understanding. They were able to get me right in and fix my tooth the same day!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a comforting staff that makes you feel safe in these crazy times!

"I was seen promptly and quickly put at ease with the Dr's kind gentle manner. Let's face it.....no one likes having to go to the dentist right? It was a great experience, no pressure and I was given "options" which really made me feel in control......I really appreciated that. With state of the art equipment, a clean professional office and excellent staff (thanks Linda!") I would HIGHLY recommend this office."
Lisa Y.
I always have the best experience at Aspire Family Dentistry, they all truly care for their patients at the highest level. All of the hygienists are super friendly, and very good at what they do. Dr. Lee always lightens the mood with chit chat and jokes - not to mention he is the best dentist I have ever had the pleasure of being a customer of. Also, I think the addition of the Television and the screen that shows the x-rays of your teeth is awesome! 10/10. Would recommend to everyone!
