Clear Aligners

Woman smiling If you’re considering braces, Clear Aligner or Invisalign are great options. The benefits of Invisalign and Clear Aligner, in fact, are superior to previous-era braces; also known as metal braces.

With Invisalign or Clear Aligners, you have none of the bulky wires or metal that can snag. Clear orthodontics are also aesthetically appealing because they are invisible!

What to Expect From Invisalign Treatments

Invisalign and Clear Aligner trays are custom designed to fit the unique contours of your mouth. They can even be removed for optimal brushing and flossing, and you don’t have to wear them when you eat!

Invisible braces are right for you if you want to enhance your smile by straightening teeth that are crooked. They also work to close gaps between teeth over time.

Invisalign Can Help With Orthodontic Relapse

Additionally, Invisalign and Clear Aligners are useful in the treatment of orthodontic relapse, a condition that means your teeth are drifting following a previous orthodontic procedure or after failing to wear your retainer as prescribed.

Ultimately, our skilled dentists at Central Park Dental Clinic will decide whether Invisalign or Clear Aligners are right for you after a comprehensive oral assessment.

It makes sense that you would want your smile to look great as well as feel great. At Central Park Dental Clinic, we offer a full range of cosmetic dental options for our patients to choose from.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

Whether you want a simple treatment like professional teeth whitening or you are looking to enhance your smile with porcelain veneers or even straighten your teeth with the latest in orthodontic technology, we proudly provide beautiful smile-enhancing options. 

Invisible braces – We offer Clear Aligner and Invisalign to help patients straighten their teeth without the hassle of traditional brackets and wires.

Porcelain veneers – Opting for porcelain veneers means that you can correct a number of problems with the appearance of your teeth. Stains, misalignment, and chips all disappear when we place porcelain veneers over your natural teeth. 

Dental implants – Unfortunately, nothing is more noticeable about someone’s smile than missing teeth. Not only are dental implants stable, functional, and reliable, but they also fill in the gaps in your smile, restoring your appearance.

Woman using clear braces In case you haven’t heard, Invisalign is a nearly invisible teeth straightening option with orthodontics that do not require brackets and wires. Many of our adult patients opt for Invisalign in our Burnaby, BC dental clinic so they can avoid the inconvenience of a limited diet and having to clean around hardware after each meal.

What Alignment Issues Invisalign Can Treat

Invisalign works well for most orthodontic conditions that impact the appearance and function of your smile, including overcrowding and overlapping, and unevenly spaced teeth. Treatment times are similar to traditional orthodontics and sometimes even a bit shorter, which pleases our patients. Since aligners are smooth, removable, and clear, the impact on your daily life is minor.

Invisalign Process

It’s easier to keep teeth clean, to eat your favourite foods, and to keep your orthodontics a secret. All you need to do is wear aligners most of the day (about 22 hours) and keep your teeth and aligners clean. Every two weeks, you will trade in your aligner trays for a new set that will take you one step closer to your goal of having a straight smile!

Clear Braces | Central Park Dental ClinicClear aligners 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 Aligners in Burnaby 

Invisible 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 aligners. 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.


Woman smiling If you’re an adult who has crooked teeth, you may be thinking about orthodontic treatment, but what you’re probably not thinking about is a mouthful of metal! That is why we offer Invisalign clear aligners for adults who want a discreet, comfortable teeth-straightening option.

Orthodontic Treatments in V5H 1Y8

Invisalign clear aligners are the perfect orthodontic treatment for busy adults. There are no metal brackets and wires, just smooth crystal-clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth like a mouth guard, so most people won’t notice you are wearing them.

Better yet, you can take the aligners out so you can brush and floss easily and continue to eat all your favorite foods. Just remember to wear Invisalign for at least 22 hours each day so you can achieve the fastest results. Adults who wear their aligners as instructed see results in as little as 12 months!

Clear Aligners

And while Invisalign treatment will improve the appearance of your smile, it also has oral health benefits. Crooked or crowded teeth make brushing and flossing a challenge, and inadequate oral hygiene often leads to decay and gum disease that threaten your overall oral health.
