Invisalign Invisible Braces in Vancouver
As an adult, your dream of beautiful and straight teeth may seem to be only that: a dream. Why? Because the idea of wearing braces “like a teenager” to correct misaligned teeth is standing firmly between you and the smile you wish you had.
But…what if there was a remarkable and proven solution that could give you the beautiful and straight teeth you want – without braces?
Well, stop dreaming because the answer to that is real, proven and right in front of you — and it’s called Invisalign!
What is Invisalign?
Watch the brand new official Invisalign commercials. Go wireless with your orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign is an alternative to braces for patients who have full adult dentition and complete jaw growth, and it’s effective for a broad range of needs and cases.
Invisalign uses advanced 3-D computer imaging to create a series of comfortable and invisible aligners, which you wear at home, at work, or anywhere else you wish. Invisalign aligners are molded to perfectly fit your mouth, and are made without metal wires, brackets or bands – which makes them remarkably comfortable (especially compared to braces!).
Each aligner is worn for a two week period, and thus gradually straightens your teeth – there are no harsh and painful adjustments at the orthodontist. Plus, the aligners are removable, which means you can easily slip them out to eat, drink, brush or floss.
And of course, since Invisalign is invisible (hence the name!), only you’ll know that you’re wearing them – which gives you the peace of mind you want when it comes to your appearance and self-esteem.
How Long does Invisalign Take to Straighten your Teeth?
The total treatment time is about 9-15 months depending on your needs and goals, and progress checks at Arbutus North Dental Centre take place about once every six weeks.
