5 Benefits to Straightening Teeth with Removable Aligners

Things to Know Before Getting Invisalign

Are you dreaming of a straighter smile but worried about committing to braces? You’re not alone! This is a common concerned shared by many adults who would like a straighter smile but still need flexibility in their treatment plans. Braces permanently adhere to your teeth for the duration of treatment, which means once you start treatment you cannot remove the brackets or wires without visiting your orthodontist. Invisalign is different. Invisalign uses clear, acrylic aligners that can be removed easily at any time. Invisalign’s aligners can be taken off during mealtimes and at night when brushing your teeth. For some adults, this added flexibility can make treatment easier and more successful.

Here are five benefits to choosing removable aligners like Invisalign to straighten your teeth: More»

Invisalign After Braces: Straightening Your Teeth (Again) as an Adult

Invisalign Nova Scotia - Top Considerations When Selecting a Provider

If you had braces as a teen, you know there’s nothing quite like the unbridled joy that comes when your braces are finally removed. You’re no longer a socially-awkward teen with a mouthful of metal! Unfortunately, the next step, wearing a retainer, can be almost as challenging. Metal retainers, like braces, are not particularly attractive. They’re tight, they can make speaking awkward, and they’re easy to misplace. If you stopped wearing your retainer shortly after you got your braces off, you’re not alone. For one reason or another, most young adults stop wearing removable retainers. A decade later, that bad habit can catch up with you. Your formerly straight teeth are crooked again. Can Invisalign save the day? Absolutely. More»

When Will I See Results from Invisalign?

Ready to finally take the first step to straighten your teeth? Once you’ve made the decision to achieve your dream smile, it’s natural to be eager to see results as soon as possible. Invisalign, like braces, will straighten your teeth very gradually, so you may not notice a dramatic difference over night. It’s unrealistic to expect to start with Invisalign one week and see results the next. You won’t have to be patient for too long, however! While result speed varies between patients, some patients may begin to notice a subtle difference within 10 to 12 weeks. More»

“Smile Ever After”: How to Achieve Your Dream Smile for Your Wedding

Invisalign for brides

You’ve tried on hundreds of dresses, selected the perfect venue, checked the guest list twice, and you’re ready to dance the night away with your groom. There’s just one problem: is your smile ready for your wedding day close-up?

From Instagram to Snapchat, the first photo many brides share on their wedding days is a selfie. More and more brides are posting selfies on social media while they’re getting ready with friends, preparing to walk down the aisle, or just after they’ve tied the knot and said, “I do!” Even with Instagram filters, selfies and other close-up are pretty revealing and unforgiving, showing the good and the bad– including crooked teeth.

What is an ‘Elite Provider’ of Invisalign?

Dreaming of straighter teeth and a perfect smile? If you’re considering Invisalign, it’s natural to have questions about this process and what to expect. One of the most common questions prospective patients ask is, “How do I select the right Invisalign provider?”

While many different factors may play a role in your final selection, the provider’s experience is one of the most important factors. The more successful cases a provider has completed, the more confident you’ll feel that the provider can do a great job on your teeth, too. Not every Invisalign provider is the same. To help put an Invisalign provider’s experience and skills in perspective, Invisalign has introduced five provider designations. These designations are based on the number of cases the provider has handled in their lifetime, as well as the number of cases the provider consistently handles each every six months. These are important distinctions. Lifetime reflects cumulative expertise while ongoing case counts ensure that the provider’s skills are fresh. Understanding these designations will help you feel more confident with your provider selection. More»
