Many adults with misaligned and crooked teeth find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place.

This sleek and modern system will allow you to have it all. With it, you can straighten your smile and maintain your normal daily appearance at the same time. If you’d like to learn more about how it works, read on below, or you can contact us today and start getting a straighter smile right now.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign completely does away with the traditional wire and bracket system. Instead, it uses a series of custom-made clear plastic aligner trays to gradually straighten the teeth in the most subtle way possible. A patient simply has to wear a set of trays (one for the top and bottom teeth) for about 22 hours a day for 2 weeks each, and after they have gone through the entire series, their smile will be perfectly straight. It’s just that simple, and it has worked for millions of patients in Canada and around the world.
What is the Cost of Invisalign?
Are you ready to make an investment in your smile with Invisalign? Contrary to common belief, they are not unaffordable. There are several factors that will determine how much you can expect to pay for the aligners. To help lower the cost, you may be able to use your dental coverage. We will help you straighten your smile while staying within your budget to make a long-term investment in your oral health.

Invisalign Treatment Time
Invisalign provides a quick and convenient treatment to move your teeth into their ideal positions. On average, you can expect to finish your series of aligners in about 12 months; however, there are several factors that influence how long your treatment will take. The duration is determined by your individual treatment plan and if you wear your aligners correctly. During your initial consultation, we discuss the expected time of completion and what you can do to ensure nothing lengthens the process.
