If you want a straighter smile, you’re likely familiar with Invisalign®. This invisible braces system has helped many of our Alberta patients straighten their teeth discreetly, and Dr. Gordon Chee can determine if this treatment is right for you, too.
Invisalign® is an effective alternative option for treating issues usually covered by braces. To find out if you’re a candidate for Invisalign® treatment, please call Aesthetic Dental Studio at 403-543-4600 to schedule a one-on-one consultation. Dr. Chee welcomes patients throughout Alberta to our office in Calgary.
What Can Invisalign® Address?
Whether you suffer from crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, Invisalign® is a versatile solution for multiple types of orthodontic issues. If the following problems affect the appearance and function of your teeth, you might be eligible for treatment:
- Open bite
Invisalign® treatment is customized to meet your needs, which is why the initial consultation is so important for assessing your candidacy. Dr. Chee will closely evaluate your teeth and bite to determine if Invisalign® is the treatment for straightening your smile.
Is Invisalign® Right for Me?
Most patients are able to undergo treatment with Invisalign®. Except in severe cases, Invisalign® is an acceptable alternative to braces, making it a potentially ideal option if you are seeking a treatment that:
- Straightens teeth without ‘metal mouth’
- Gives you the option to remove aligners at your leisure with minimal restrictions
- Reduces the number of visits you’ll have to make to our office
- Doesn’t restrict your ability to enjoy food and activities that you love
- Allows you to continue brushing and flossing like normal, reducing the risk of cavities
During your consultation, you and Dr. Chee can discuss your preferred timeline for completing treatment. Generally, Invisalign® requires a lower time commitment than traditional braces, with many patients achieving straighter teeth in just six months to one year.
Alternatives to Invisalign® and Braces
If you’re simply looking to improve the aesthetic of your smile without addressing orthodontic issues, Dr. Chee can review alternatives to both braces and Invisalign®. Porcelain veneers are sometimes called ‘instant orthodontics’ because of their ability to create the appearance of straight teeth. Instead of months or more than a year, it takes just two appointments to fabricate and bond custom veneers to fit your teeth.
