The Clear Solution to Straighter, Healthier Teeth and Smile


Step-by-Step Guide to a Confident Smile with Clear Aligners

The Clear Solution To Straighter Teeth

You always hear about it, your friends wear it and love it, so what is Invisalign? Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment offering a modern and discreet solution for straighter teeth. It is an alternative to traditional metal braces offered by Dr. Chloe Xu at Chinook Smiles. Utilizing a series of clear, custom-made aligners, Invisalign gradually moves your teeth into their desired positions, resulting in a beautifully aligned smile without all that hardware.

Do I need Invisalign? What can it do for me?

The obvious benefit of Invisalign is a straighter, more beautiful smile. If this is something you have pondered about, come see us at Chinook Smiles for a complimentary consultation!

Beyond aesthetics, Invisalign can also improve your occlusion, aka “the bite”. The truth is, almost three quarters of the population have some issues with their bite (AAO reference), leading to further problems such as tooth wear, gum problems, TMJ disease or jaw joint pain, difficulty maintain oral hygiene, and sleep apnea and breathing problems. Yikes!

The Process

During your complimentary Invisalign consultation, Dr. Chloe Xu will carefully examine your teeth, your jaw, and your “bite”, as well as discuss your smile goals. If Invisalign is suitable for you, we will take digital impressions of your teeth, allowing us to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Once your custom aligners are fabricated and delivered, you will wear a new set of aligners approximately every one to two weeks. Each aligner gently shifts your teeth into place, and over time, you’ll see your smile transform before your eyes.
