Properly aligned, straight teeth aren't just beautiful, but they're more comfortable and healthier. An improper bite and crooked teeth may lead to future dental problems that may be expensive to fix and painful. This is why Dr. Marianna Farber is pleased to provide Invisalign — clear, removable aligners for her patients in New York, NY. Made custom to fit your teeth and your unique goals, Invisalign is more comfortable and attractive than traditional metal braces because they may be taken out to make cleaning your teeth and eating easier. The innovative design of Invisalign uses a series of clear teeth aligning trays that gradually shift your teeth into a more desirable position. In addition, Dr. Farber is proud to offer patients Vpro by Propel Orthodontics. This advanced device assists in both the acceleration process for patients, as well as offers added comfort during the shifting phase. If you're interested in having healthier, straighter teeth with the Invisalign system, make an appointment at Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry to get more information from Dr. Farber.

There are several factors that may decide the alignment of your teeth: if you sucked your thumb, genetics, missing a tooth or teeth, and trauma to your face. Dental misalignment may cause more oral health concerns, such as a bad bite (dental malocclusion), uneven wear on the enamel, difficulty chewing and speaking, plus jaw pain and toothaches. If Dr. Farber sees one of these issues during your annual examination, she can suggest an orthodontic procedure, like Invisalign.
The Invisalign system is wonderful for both teens and adults who would like straighter, healthier teeth minus the hassle, pain, and look of braces. Even though the aligners should be in the majority of the day, Invisalign trays may be removed for cleaning your teeth and eating, plus for special occasions and physical activities. Much less obvious than traditional metal orthodontics that poke and cut your cheeks, your friends and family will typically not know that you're using your Invisalign aligners. Invisalign can also require fewer visits to the dentist and shorter treatment times.
What To Expect
The initial Invisalign aligners will be made with impressions using the iTero intraoral scanner at Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry. When your aligners are ready, you will come back to our office to receive your initial trays with instructions from Dr. Farber. You need to keep your aligners in for at least 20 hours every day for your treatment to work properly, ideally taking them out only for cleaning and eating. In time, you'll go to your next set of trays as they carefully shift your teeth closer to alignment. You should have follow-up appointments about every 4 – 6 weeks at Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry to have your aligning trays assessed and to get new impressions done so your next trays can be ordered. How long you need to use Invisalign trays will differ considering the initial condition of your teeth and your goals; however, many patients need to wear trays for around a year.
Accelerate Progress with VPro
For patients that require or desire faster progress, our New York City dental practice offers the VPro5 by Propel Orthodontics. This is an advanced orthodontic device that patients with Invisalign can use for five minutes each day to help speed up and accelerate their orthodontic process. The VPro works by using high-frequency vibrations to help position the aligners and seat them for optimal movement. Most of our patients receive their new straightening trays, on average, about every 14 days. With the help of VPro, this time can be cut in half. In addition, contrary to what patients may believe, it actually assists in reducing soreness in the teeth that are moving. Be sure to ask Dr. Farber if you are a candidate for VPro and how it can help you attain a straighter smile faster!
When your bite is aligned, it is crucial to stop your teeth from shifting into their original position. Vivera retainers by Invisalign are made using the same materials to keep your teeth in their new position once your Invisalign treatment is complete. Every retainer is made custom at the Invisalign dental lab based on impressions taken after your orthodontic treatment. Dr. Farber will discuss with you how many hours a day you should wear your retainer, plus how to clean it after it is sent from the laboratory. Dr. Farber will also keep watching the alignment of your teeth and bite during your annual examinations to make sure your teeth stay in their new place.
Many of our patients find that part of their treatment cost is paid for by insurance. Our office will be able to determine your coverage and figure your out-of-pocket fees. Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry offers several methods of payment if you are not using insurance. In your consultation, Dr. Farber will discuss an estimate of costs and how our office can help to make your Invisalign treatment affordable for you through payment plans and medical financing.
