Certified Preferred Invisalign® Provider in Winnipeg
Gone are the days of uncomfortable, unsightly metal braces! Invisalign technology allows you to straighten your teeth more effectively without brackets, bands or wires. Our Winnipeg Orthodontist Dr. Billy Wiltshire is a certified Invisalign Preferred Provider, with the experience you can trust to get you the smile of your dreams.
Invisalign aligners are custom-made from clear plastic designed to help your teeth safely and gradually shift into place. All you have to do is switch to a new aligner every couple of weeks and they will work like magic. Best of all, the aligners are virtually invisible!
Invisalign is used to treat:
- Underbites, crossbites or overbites
- Overly crowded or spaced teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Missing or extra teeth
- Speech, chewing or biting problems
Invisalign benefits over traditional braces:
- You can remove the Invisalign tray at any time
- No sharp metal to irritate your gums
- You can eat whatever foods you like without worrying
- You can floss and brush like normal, leading to better overall oral health
- Less visits to the orthodontist
What does getting Invisalign invisible braces involve?
The Invisalign process is a customized treatment plan — no two smiles are alike, so it all begins with a smile assessment followed by thorough imaging using x-rays, photos and tooth impressions. Once a digital 3D image is made, a treatment plan can be recommended and discussed.
We then create a series of custom-made, clear aligners using BPA-free plastic that is smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible. Every two weeks you swap in a new aligner, and your teeth will slowly but surely shift into place. Every 4–6 weeks we will examine your progress and make sure that you’re on the path to your perfect smile!
