What are clear braces?
Clear braces are an innovative way to provide orthodontic treatment without the need for brackets and wires. This is important to many of our patients who feel that traditional orthodontic treatment may not be ideal because of their lifestyle or how they will look with braces on their teeth.
Some adult and older teen patients would prefer to live with a crooked smile rather than spend years in braces. We offer a solution!
Clear Braces in Burnaby
Clear braces provide a welcome alternative for many patients in our Burnaby, BC dental office. Instead of using brackets and an adjustable wire to move your teeth, a series of clear, plastic aligner trays will gradually move your teeth into ideal alignment. Clear aligners are smooth, and many patients find them more comfortable.
Each set of aligner trays is one step closer to a straight, comfortable smile.
An evaluation will determine if you are a candidate for clear braces. If you are, we will gather data to plan your treatment. Impressions, x-rays, and photographs will help our dentists plan your treatment in a way that delivers beautiful and comfortable results. It is important that your teeth come together correctly once treatment is complete so that your bite is comfortable and does not wear prematurely.
We will also make an orthodontic retainer to hold your teeth in place.
