Invisible aligners

An invisible aligner with no metal

Align your teeth with precision

No metal wires, no braces … no joke! Spa dentaire Laurier proposes the invisible aligners SureSmile® to superbly align your teeth without anyone noticing. What’s more, Dr Comeau will use his extensive experience to propose an efficient treatment for you.

What are invisible aligners?

Invisible aligners is a brace-based, metal-free orthodontic treatment that is invisible at conversational distance. Clear aligners are custom designed to perfectly adapt to your teeth. They gently shift your teeth towards their alignment.

Invisible aligners can solve all sorts of problems: exaggerated inter-tooth spacing, bad alignment, overbite, crossbite or crowding.

Invisalign® or SureSmile® ?

The two major companies that offer the planning and production of clear aligners are Invisalign® and SureSmile®. A healthy competition has developed between Invisalign® and SureSmile®, allowing dentists to offer these treatments in an increasingly predictable way. High definition scans, the introduction of artificial intelligence in each production step and the further development of 3D printers reduce processing time and increase comfort.

Invisible aligners’ Advantages

Invisible aligners have many advantages. Some are obvious, others less so:

  • Aligners are invisible, so people will notice less when you wear them.
  • Invisible aligners are made of medical-grade plastic, which makes them more comfortable.
  • There are fewer follow-up visits than with traditional braces: only about every six weeks, which will save you time and money.
  • You will be able to take off the aligners to eat, which will render chewing crunchy foods easier. You don’t have to worry about food getting stuck between your braces.
  • It will also be easier to maintain good oral hygiene, since you will be able to take off the Invisible aligners to brush your teeth or floss with string or an interdental brush. This will prevent plaque from accumulating or stains from appearing on your teeth, which are common phenomena when conventional braces are removed.

How does it work?

Invisible aligners procedure is simple:

  • We start by listening to you in order to grasp what you would like to achieve.
  • Then, we examine your teeth and take pictures and radiographs to make sure that you are an ideal candidate for this method.
  • If you are a good candidate, we’ll make a digital 3D print of your teeth in order to offer you the proper treatment plan. This will allow us to evaluate the duration of your invisible aligners treatment and determine the necessary number of aligners. We will also show you what to expect in the end.
  • The photos, diagnostic analyses, and treatment plan will be sent to the Invisalign® or SureSmile® lab so they can create custom aligners just for you.
  • You must wear the aligners day and night, and will only be allowed to take them off for eating or for dental maintenance.
  • You will wear each series of aligners for a period of two weeks. Even if each new series loosens after only a few days, you must not pass on to the next series too quickly. Your teeth need time to adjust to their new position.
  • After treatment, you will visit us periodically for follow-ups. We will do all we can to transform your smile in the most splendid manner.
