Want Discreet Braces? Choose Invisalign®.
If you are in need of orthodontic treatment to correct a misaligned, gapped, or crooked smile, you are not alone. Over four million people in the US wear braces—one million of which are adults. Using some of the latest orthodontic technology, braces no longer need to be classified by prominent metal brackets and wires. The Smile Centre features Invisalign® clear aligners that can adjust your teeth to their ideal position while being virtually invisible.
Invisalign Can Treat
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Overbite or underbite
- Open bite or crossbite
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign orthodontics is a popular treatment method because of the discreet and comfortable nature of the procedure. The process begins with minimally invasive digital photographs of your teeth and bite. Using these photos and our Digital Smile Design technology, we are able to simulate what your smile will look like during the treatment process and even show you what the end result will be. You will then be given multiple clear plastic aligners to wear over the course of your treatment time. These aligners comfortably rest on your teeth and gently make minor adjustments. After one or two weeks, you will then swap your current aligner for the next one, which continues to adjust your teeth. Because these aligners are clear plastic, they are nearly invisible while you are wearing them and typically do not irritate the gums, cheeks or lips like traditional orthodontics can.
Benefits of Invisalign
The success of Invisalign is dependent on how often the aligner is worn. It is recommended they are worn 20-22 hours a day, but can be taken out to eat, drink or clean your teeth. For teens, we offer compliance indicators on the aligners so our doctors, patients and parents can ensure that the aligners are being worn the proper amount of time.
