Correct Minor Misalignment with Invisalign Express
Even the smallest misalignment such as a crooked tooth or gap between your front teeth can significantly affect the overall appearance of your smile. However, many patients with minor misalignments do not feel that a full orthodontic treatment is worth the time and cost. Shemen Dental Group offers a simple and effective solution for patients in this situation. Invisalign® Express provides the advantages of traditional Invisalign with the additional benefit of an expedited timeline. When receiving orthodontic treatment at our Amarillo, TX, practice, you can rest assured that Drs. Eddy Sauer and Nathaniel Avirett are dedicated to helping you achieve your smile goals.
Is Invisalign Express for You?
Invisalign Express is not meant for every patient requiring orthodontic treatment. This solution is typically reserved for minor misalignments, such as a crooked tooth or small gap. To qualify for Invisalign Express, you will need to meet certain clinical criteria, including:
- Less than one-and-a-half millimeters of expansion needed per arch
- Less than two millimeters of midline correction required
- Minimal rotation of the front teeth
- Less than two millimeters of spacing or crowding per arch
During your consultation, your doctor will conduct a full evaluation to determine whether you are a candidate for Invisalign Express. If you are not, we also offer traditional Invisalign which can correct a broader range of misalignment.
Invisalign Express Options
There are two Invisalign Express treatment options:
- Invisalign Express 5
- This option is designed for patients who require five or fewer treatment stages. Each treatment stage consists of one set of aligners. Invisalign Express 5 is only recommended for minor cases.
- Invisalign Express 10
- For patients with slightly more complex issues, a 10 stage treatment may be recommended. Invisalign Express 10 typically takes about four or five months and utilizes 10 or fewer sets of aligners.
After your treatment is over, you may receive an additional set of aligners to help you refine your results without having to commit to a second treatment. One refinement is included in the cost of Invisalign Express.

Does Faster Treatment Sacrifice Quality?
While Invisalign Express is a condensed version of the traditional Invisalign treatments, you can expect the same high-quality care. Invisalign Express patients benefit from the same advanced features, including:
- SmartTrack® Material
- ClinCheck® Modification
- Tooth Movement Assessment
- Precision Cuts
- Standard Support
- SmartForce® Features
Throughout the entire process, our team will also provide you with exceptional service. From strategic, in-depth planning to carefully overseen alignment, our doctors are dedicated to excellence in every aspect of treatment.
Financing Your New Smile
Depending on your insurance, a portion of your treatment may be covered. However, if it is not, patients can apply for financing through CareCredit® to help cover out-of-pocket costs. Fortunately, Invisalign Express is only a portion of the cost of the full treatment as fewer aligners and appointments are required.
