We often do impressions and records on the day of the consultations, so there's 1. Then you need a delivery date, that's 2. If you didn't do the impressions on your first visit that would be 3 appointments.

1-2 visits are necessary to start Invisalign

At the first visit, goals are discussed and a discussion on Invisalign (and if it is appropriate for you) is done.  If you are ready, financial arrangements are complete and current dental condition allows initiation of treatment, one could start right then (making it only one visit).  If financing needed to get in order, oral health was not good enough, or a person just wasn't quite ready, then another visit (or more) would be necessary.

Just one!

Hi! The first visit is a consultation and if you are ready for records and invisalign impressions that day, and your teeth are healthy and all your dental work is up to date and complete, then we could take the invisalign impressions that day. From that point it takes about 4 weeks to get the invisalign trays.

If you were coming to my practice, you and I would first meet to do a consultation where take and review digital photos of your smile and we discuss your goals.  If everything looks healthy and you're ready to go, we can make your records  (impressions, etc) that same day.  You will have the option to review the clin-check with me in a couple of weeks.  Otherwise, we will deliver your trays about 3-4 weeks after your impressions are made.  And, you'll be on your way to a great smile.
