A Clearly Attractive Orthodontic Solution

As a Premier Preferred Provider, Dr. Bunce is one of the most experienced Invisalign® orthodontists in the Bellevue area. That’s because she gained first-hand access to Invisalign’s proprietary technology while it was still in it’s earliest stages of development.

Prior to opening her private practice, Dr. Bunce served as a research evaluator on an Invisalign® research study at the University of Washington in 2001, where she treated about 50 patients per day.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment system that straightens teeth just like braces, using a series of clear plastic aligners rather than metal hooks and wires. These aligners gently guide your teeth into their proper positions over a series of months. The aligners are customized to fit your teeth and are virtually unnoticeable when worn. They’re also removable, which means you can take them out to enjoy your favorite foods or for daily dental hygiene.

How does treatment work?

Once Dr. Bunce determines that you are a candidate for Invisalign®, our team will take digital X-rays, photographs, and other digital images to create virtual 3-D models of your teeth. She’ll use this information to design your case from beginning to end, and then communicate with the technicians at the Invisalign® laboratory where your aligners will be made. Each set of aligners is worn for one to two weeks before graduating up to the next in your series.

We’ll plan to see you in our office about every 10 weeks so that Dr. Bunce can monitor your progress. During these visits, we will make necessary adjustments to your treatment plan to ensure the most desirable results are achieved.

Did you know: Aligners should be worn about 22 hours per day, and should only be removed to brush/floss or to eat?

Is Invisalign® right for you?

A thorough examination is necessary to determine whether Invisalign is the best treatment option to correct your bite and alignment issues. Invisalign® is particularly effective for correcting the following orthodontic issues:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Mild bite problems such as overbite, underbite, crossbite or an open bite
  • Crowded teeth

Invisalign Teen®

Invisalign Teen® provides the benefits of our original Invisalign® product, with a few built-in bonuses.

Our teen aligners include hidden indicator dots to confirm they’ve been worn properly, and can also be designed to accommodate teeth that may still be growing into place.

If an aligner is damaged or accidentally lost, Dr. Bunce can prescribe replacement aligners.
