Dr. Nevein Amer tends to turbulent teethscapes with Invisalign treatments and an expertise acquired while studying at the Baylor College of Dentistry and the University of Southern California. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 9–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Specializing in cosmetic, implant, and restorative dentistry, Dr. Amer mends ailing mouths in a holistic manner, focusing on the patient’s overall well-being and how it’s affected by their dental woes. The office’s homey waiting room and chair-side televisions put patients at ease, and the dentist’s caring demeanor ensures each experience at Dental Arts of Plano parallels the calm obtained from a bedtime story read by Morgan Freeman. Post-treatment retainers are recommended for all patients, and are available for $275, and additional optional refinements can be purchased for $500.
