How Long Will I Have to Wear My Aligners?

The answer will depend on your individual alignment needs. Minor misalignments could be improved in as little as six months, while more complex cases could take over a yearDr. Buono will go over the length of your treatment plan during your complimentary consultation at his practice.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

The Simple Answer? It Varies.

Just like the amount of time you will need to wear your aligners will vary, the cost of your treatment will vary based on your individualized needs. But a beautiful, straight smile is worth every penny.

We Offer Competitive Prices

Dr. Buono's fee structure is very competitive. Plans differ, but it is possible that your insurance could cover some of the expenses. Our warm, friendly staff will work with your carrier to get you the maximum coverage available. 

Invisalign Treatment Timeline

Your first step on the road to straighter teeth is a free consultation at Dr. Buono's Garden City, NY, practice. He will analyze your mouth to determine if Invisalign is right for you. The total length of treatment depends on each patient's smile goals, but overall, treatment time is usually equal to that of traditional braces–at least one year or more.

Dental Impressions

First, Dr. Buono will take digital impressions with our Cadent iTero scanner, which eliminates the need for messy gels and waxes. These precise images are then uploaded to our computer software.

Aligner Fabrication

The digital impressions are then sent to our trusted partner lab. There, a trained dental technician custom-crafts your aligners according to Dr. Buono's personalized treatment plan. The number of trays necessary depends on your specific case.

First Try-In

Once the aligners have been created, they are shipped to our Long Island, NY, dental office. You will be fitted for your first set of aligners. Our team will also provide you with instructions for proper wear and cleaning during your visit.

Active Treatment

For Invisalign to shift your misaligned teeth effectively, your clear aligners must be worn at least 20-22 hours every day. You should only remove them to eat, brush, and floss. The aligners are typically switched out for the next set approximately every two weeks. 

Retention

Once Dr. Buono has determined that your smile has been properly aligned, you will need to wear a retainer to prevent your teeth from shifting back into their original positions. Dr. Buono can discuss your options and help you choose a retainer that will fit your preferences and lifestyle.
Helpful hint: Keep your previous aligner every time you switch to a new one. This means you will have a back-up in case you lose or break your current tray.
