Invisalign – The Clear Choice For Straight Teeth
Looking for an Invisalign provider in Carleton Place, Ontario? Heritage Dental has got you covered!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces that comes in the form of a clear aligner. Invisalign aligners are made from SmartTrack – a flexible and body-safe plastic designed specifically for the purpose of teeth alignment.
An Invisalign solution allows for more discreet treatment of crooked or misaligned teeth thanks to the clear appearance of the aligners. Each aligner is made custom to fit the shape and size of your uniquely individual teeth!
Who can get Invisalign?
Invisalign is ideal for adults, as their teeth are likely done growing. The Invisalign aligners were designed to treat a plethora of dental issues – from teeth straightening to bite correction.
Our dentists and dental assistants can walk you through the Invisalign process during your personal consultation to help you decide if Invisalign is the right solution for you.
Invisalign vs. traditional braces
While Invisalign utilizes a simple aligner, similar to a mouthguard, traditional braces are applied on either the inner or outer sides of the teeth and use metal wires to slowly move your teeth. Braces are semi-permanently fixed onto the teeth, while Invisalign is a removable appliance.
In terms of effectiveness, it can vary patient to patient. Invisalign is an effective treatment for most standard orthodontic issues and conditions. However, more serious or severe misalignments or other conditions may call for braces instead.
Our dental team at Heritage Dental can help you to determine which solution will meet your needs!

- Lower Cost: Invisalign can be a less expensive alternative to traditional braces.
