Not Too Much and Not Too Little - Just Right
Invisalign Lite is a mid-level treatment system designed to fix intermediate orthodontic issues. Invisalign Lite has the ability move all of your teeth, including molars, and will fix both the appearance of your smile and any bite problems you may be having as a result of your misaligned teeth. The aligner trays are made with the same plastic used in Invisalign Full and the treatment process is essentially the same, just less time-consuming.
Invisalign Lite corrects mild to moderate malocclusion, which is a misalignment of teeth. Malocclusions can be caused by an overbite, underbite, crossbite, or crowding. While the tougher cases are better served by Invisalign Full, many patients can achieve their desired result with Invisalign Lite.
Invisalign Lite Cost and Treatment Length
Because it is a less involved treatment process than Invisalign Full, Invisalign Lite is generally less expensive and takes less time—approximately 4-8 months.
While it may be tempting to try to use Invisalign Lite because of this lower cost and shorter treatment time, it's important to do what is right for your smile. Dr. Milnor will do a thorough examination of your teeth and jaws to ensure you are receiving the recommendation that will most benefit your oral health, whether it be Invisalign Lite or another Invisalign treatment option.
Many dental insurance policies offer some coverage for patients who use any type of Invisalign, so be sure to check with your provider or bring your insurance information to your free initial consultation. We also offer affordable down payments and monthly plans to make it even easier to fit Invisalign into your budget.
