Invisalign ®

Are you unhappy with your smile? Is your bite, or the way your teeth fit together, causing discomfort in the way you speak and chew? Is the way your smile looks impacting your self-confidence? Don’t worry – we can help!

There are thousands of adults all around you that are unhappy with the way their teeth look and function and want to improve their tooth alignment. But where many of them stop is at the idea of those hard, sharp, shiny traditional metal braces that were the only option for tooth alignment for decades.

Lucky for you and those thousands of other people in your position… times have changed! Here at Yonge Star Dental, we use the Invisalign system to correct the tooth alignment of our patients in a way that’s comfortable, affordable, quick, and looks great.

In simple terms, Invisalign are clear braces. The Invisalign system straightens your teeth without making you walk into your classroom or boardroom with a mouth full of shiny metal.

The Invisalign system corrects your alignment using plastic trays that have been custom fit to your mouth. The system does not involve the wires and brackets relied on by traditional braces. The Invisalign aligners are clear, making them nearly invisible. They will not shift over time like metal brackets and will work to gently guide your teeth into alignment slowly over time.

As your alignment begins to correct and your teeth begin to shift, you will need to visit your dentist for new aligners. This usually takes place every 6 months or so.

Patients using Invisalign love that they can remove their aligners to make eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing simpler and more accessible. While the aligners are easy to take in and out of your mouth, it is recommended to keep them on your teeth for at least 20 hours a day for best treatment results.
