There is no denying that traditional braces are effective. For decades, children, teens, and adults have benefitted from the brackets and wires that shift teeth into alignment. However, the visibility of metal brackets and wires often causes many to feel embarrassed or even forgo treatment altogether. At Bionica Dental Wellness of Delafield, our team is pleased to offer an alternative – Invisalign for adults. Far more discreet and subtle than metal braces, these aligners deliver the same great results that lead to improved confidence and better oral health. Call us today to schedule a consultation to learn more about this unique service.
There is a good chance that you will be eligible for Invisalign, as most adults are. However, a complete consultation must first occur before a decision can be made regarding your orthodontic treatment.

After our team at Bionica Dental Wellness of Delafield completes the consultation, we will determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. If so, we will formulate a treatment plan that you will review. The next step is to take digital impressions of your teeth so that lab technicians can have an accurate model that they can use to fabricate your customized trays.
The number of aligners you receive will be based on our team’s analysis of how long it will take for you to complete treatment successfully.
Once we receive your new aligners, you will return to undergo a proper fitting. We’ll explain how to put them in and take them out as well as how long you must wear them each day (20-22 hours). Each set will be worn for 1-2 weeks (based on our recommendation) before you swap them out for the next set in the series.
You will be required to maintain follow-up appointments with our team; however, you will not need to worry about these visits requiring much of your time, as there is no wire tightening required.
Although each patient’s case is different as well as the timeline for treatment, your new smile may be evident in just 12-18 months.
When it comes to choosing whether Invisalign is right for you or not, you’ll find many great benefits come with clear aligners that you might not have realized before, such as:
