Smile Horizons Dental Arts - Dentist Mississauga
If you want to renew your smile and improve your oral health with teeth straightening, Invisalign from Smile Horizons Dental Arts is an excellent choice. Instead of using bulky and highly conspicuous wires and brackets, Invisalign uses minimally invisible, removable braces to straighten your teeth with comfort and style.
What to expect from Invisalign treatment
If you have a bite misalignment, crooked teeth, and gapped teeth, you are a perfect candidate for Invisalign. After Dr. Hytham Elwi establishes that your mouth is free of gum disease and cavities, the next step is to take 3D impressions of your mouth to create custom-made aligners.
Fabricating your clear teeth straighteners takes about two weeks. So, when this period has lapsed, you will book an appointment with Dr. Elwi to pick your aligners. You will receive a set of trays that you wear for about two weeks before moving to the next set that pushes your teeth one more step towards perfection.
How long before I start seeing results?
While we usually say that Invisalign straightens teeth faster than traditional braces, this isn’t always the case. If you aren’t dedicated to wearing your clear braces for at least 20-22 hours a day, your treatment will be delayed.
However, for patients that wear the Invisalign aligners as directed, results are usually visible as early as 6 months, although treatment can extend up to 18 months for patients with severe orthodontic challenges.

Benefits of Invisalign
Why should I invest in Invisalign? Are clear aligners worth the cost? Invisalign teeth treatment speaks for itself. Here are the benefits of Invisalign over its traditional counterparts:
- Comfort — clear braces are made from comfortable plastic that doesn’t irritate your gums.
- No dietary restrictions — while undergoing Invisalign treatment, you can eat anything you want. You just remove your aligners and put them back when done with your meal.
- Discreet — clear aligners are inconspicuous. People will hardly notice you are aligning your teeth.
- It doesn’t compromise your oral hygiene — brushing around wires and brackets is tricky and time-consuming. However, for Invisalign, you just remove your braces, clean your teeth, and wear them back.
