Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about your smile every time you meet someone new? Would you like to smile with confidence? When your teeth are crooked it takes a toll on your confidence and affects how you feel about yourself. Maybe you've considered straightening your teeth, however, you're not sure you'd like to wear braces. The good news is there are other solutions for your smile, and here's what you should know.

Invisalign Straightens Teeth With Discretion

Instead of using metal braces, Invisalign utilizes clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Because aligners are snug fitting and clear, they're virtually invisible and they don't interfere with your normal activities. They're also removable, which means you can take them out for eating, brushing, and flossing. You won't experience any changes to your diet or home care routine as you would with traditional braces. Most Invisalign cases take 12-18 months to complete, and the results are phenomenal!

Will Invisalign Work For Me?

Dr. Joo or Dr. Moore can determine if Invisalign in Toronto is right for needs during an examination of your teeth. While Invisalign can't correct complicated bite issues, it does work well for most patients. If it's not right for your needs, our dentists can discuss alternative treatment procedures that can enhance your smile.

If you move forward with Invisalign, we'll use 3D technology to plan your treatment, and we'll show you exactly what your smile will look like when it's completed before you even get started with treatment! Invisalign will fabricate your aligners using this treatment plan, and you'll wear them every day for at least 22 hours, and change them every two weeks.
