A Teenage Smile Without The Metal

No One Will Know You Are Wearing Braces In Kelowna

Many adults would like to straighten their teeth, but having a mouthful of teenager-style metal braces is not exactly what they had in mind. With clear braces from Love Your Smile in Kelowna you can have it both ways!

Your busy lifestyle will not be hampered, because clear braces are convenient and uncomplicated. They are called aligners, and they look like an athlete’s mouthguard. Because they are made of a clear synthetic material, they are very subtle: so much so that most people won’t even notice you have them on.

One of the things people most like about clear braces is that they can be removed for meals, and for when you brush and floss your teeth. For best results, however, you should wear them at least twenty-two hours a day.

At Love Your Smile in Kelowna, we offer Invisalign clear braces, as well as traditional wire braces. People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 love what they do for their smiles! Call for an appointment today!

You Won’t Miss The Metal With Invisible Braces

You Won't Miss The Metal With Invisible Braces In Kelowna

Clear braces are here to stay! Clear braces bring your teeth into proper alignment but without any conspicuous metal brackets. When the treatment is finished you are left with a beautiful new smile. Clear braces are available at Love Your Smile in Kelowna.

Clear braces are sometimes called invisible braces. The proper name for them is “aligners.” They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard. You wear a series of them to put pressure on your teeth, which is what brings them into alignment. Each set of aligners is worn from one to two weeks before you go to a new set. The new set changes the alignment slightly, so that in time, you have an ideal bite.

To get the best results from clear braces, they must be worn for at least twenty-two hours each day, although that time may vary slightly from one patient to the next. The total number of aligners each patient needs varies, too.

Some of the benefits of clear braces:

  • They’re inconspicuous. People standing just a few feet away from you may not even realize you’re wearing them.
  • They are removeable. As noted, they must be worn most of the time. But you can take them out for meals and for flossing and brushing before bed.
  • No metal in your mouth!

Remember, the goal of aligners, or any braces for that matter, is to ensure your top and bottom teeth fit together properly. It may be tempting to remove them sometimes, but it is in your best interest to wear your aligners for the recommended time. That usually includes while you sleep.

To find out whether clear braces from Invisalign are right for you, please call us at Love Your Smile in Kelowna. People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 also come to us for our complete restorative dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!

How Long Does It Take For Braces To Straighten Teeth?

top orthodontist KelownaWaiting is hard. You want your new smile today! In this post from Love Your Smile in Kelowna, we remind you it takes a while to move misaligned teeth into their proper position. Most people wear braces from 18 to 36 months.

What issues influence the treatment time?

  • The type of braces used
  • How well the patient follows the orthodontist’s instructions regarding foods to avoid
  • The distance the teeth must be moved
  • The amount of room available in the mouth
  • The condition of the teeth
  • The health of the gums and jawbone

Keep all your appointments during treatment. We will make sure the braces are working like they should. We will monitor the wires, springs or rubber bands to exert the correct amount of pressure on the teeth.

At Love Your Smile in Kelowna we offer traditional wire braces, and clear braces from Invisalign. People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 have straighter teeth after our treatment. Call for an appointment today!

What You See And What You Don’t: Orthodontics in Kelowna

invisible braces Kelowna

If you’ve had restorations, orthodontic work, or a complete smile redesign, you want people to notice the results. In this post, those of us at Love Your Smile in Kelowna describe three important smile makeover procedures that may not be apparent when you smile.

Invisible Braces
Modern orthodontics offers more than just traditional braces. While metal braces are the best option for some patients, clear braces provide a more convenient system. They are removable, so you can take them out when eating and sleeping. They’re also nearly impossible to see when being worn.

White Fillings

If you have metal fillings, you might be interested in replacing them with composite fillings that match your surrounding teeth. You can’t undo the decay, but you can make the metal disappear.

Tooth Implants

A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the jaw bone to replace a missing root. The crown and supporting structure are securely and permanently attached to the post. Titanium is super strong and well tolerated by the jaw. When the final crown is placed, your new tooth is indistinguishable from the others.

Love Your Smile has been providing dental care since 2004. In addition to the orthodontic and cosmetic services previously mentioned, ask us about teeth whitening and sedation dentistry. We look forward to meeting you.

Invisalign Vs Braces, Why Choose Invisalign

So you have decided that you want to have your teeth straightened. The team at Love Your Smile Dental Clinic is excited that you have made this choice. Now you need to make the final choice between traditional metal braces or trying the new and highly advanced Invisalign technology.

Why do we highly recommend Invisalign to our patients? It is simple really, they are offer comfort, convenience and confidence. Now you will be able to straighten your teeth with minimal interference on your life.

The clear Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. These aligners are smooth and comfortable, are removeable for easy cleaning and also make eating whatever you want a breeze. Traditional braces require brackets and wires. These wires can poke and irritate your mouth. Also brushing and flossing require more effort and there many food restrictions as the braces can be damaged.

In our professional opinion, the benefits of Invisalign speak for themselves. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist has planned out for you. You just put in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is finished. It is required to wear them for 20 to 22 hours a day to create the desired effect.

Another huge benefit of choosing Invisalign is that the cost of Invisalign treatment is similar to that of traditional braces. 2.5 million Invisalign patients of all ages are now smiling with confidence and you can be one of them.

Invisalign is so non invasive that people won’t even know that you’re straightening your teeth. These little aligners are able to correct crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite. The team at Love Your Smile Dental Clinic has high levels of Invisalign treatment experience and Dr. Malfair is a certified Invisalign trained doctor. If you would like a consultation to determine the cost of treatment based on your goals and the complexity of your case, feel free to call us to book an appointment.
