Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
Metal braces have long been the primary solution for correcting gapped or spaced teeth, but Invisalign is an effective and increasingly popular solution for closing the gaps between teeth without the hassles associated with traditional braces. Your consultation with Calgary dentist and Invisalign provider Dr. Jennifer Silver will determine if you’re a candidate to enjoy the benefits of Invisalign.
Gapped teeth often occur when the jaw does not grow normally or when teeth shift to fill spaces left by abnormal jaw growth or missing teeth. Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made plastic aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and progressively move them into proper alignment. You swap out one set of aligners for the next in the progressive series approximately every two weeks. The Invisalign aligners are also easy to remove for meals and cleaning, so you can maintain your normal diet while the aligners work to bring your teeth into the desired position. For more information about Invisalign, please see our Invisalign Questions page. If you would like to learn if you’re a candidate for Invisalign, please contact the Southcentre Dental Clinic to schedule your personal consultation with Calgary, Alberta, dentist and Invisalign provider Dr. Jennifer Silver.
