At Okanagan Smiles, we offer both conventional orthodontic treatment (braces) and Invisalign. Conventional braces are a tried and true method of aligning teeth and helping you achieve a beautiful smile.
Is there anything you’d like to change about your smile?
Do you have teeth in your smile that aren’t straight? Braces or Invisalign may be able to help! Invisalign has helped over 11 million people feel more confident with their smile. This product is popular because it’s comfortable, convenient, and it works, making it an excellent alignment alternative.
Invisalign is the most sought as an alternative to conventional braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners, to bring teeth into alignment. This “easy to wear” system is taken out to eat, brush and floss. The specially designed aligners are virtually invisible allowing you to smile with confidence. You will be amazed at how simple and aesthetic “braces” can be!
We start with a consultation and do a precise dental scan to map out a custom Invisalign treatment plan just for you. We’ll even show you a preview of your new smile. You will receive custom aligners made for your unique specifications. Even the gum line will be tailored to guarantee a comfortable and invisible fit using a SmartTrack material specific to Invisalign. This ensures comfort and discretion so you can smile with confidence.
When you receive your first aligners, your dentist will double-check that the fit is perfect, advise you on what to expect, and answer any questions you may have about the process.

Invisalign aligners are made of SmartTrack material, designed to fit snugly and comfortably around your teeth while it applies gentle, constant force to straighten them. With SmartTrack, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than other clear aligners and braces. Also, each aligner is designed to fit your gum line to ensure comfort. Plus, they’re almost invisible, so you can smile with confidence.
The convenience of Invisalign sets it apart from other alignment systems. You can continue to eat your favourite foods, and you can continue to enjoy your favourite sports and activities. And, since there are no brackets or wires to deal with, you’ll find brushing and flossing simple, and you won’t have the hassle of emergency dental work to repair broken brackets and wires.
Whether you have an overbite, underbite, or crowded teeth, Invisalign aligners can help you. The Invisalign system straightens your teeth with 75% more predictability than other clear aligners, and you’ll see results in as little as 6 months.
INVISALIGN AND CONVENTIONAL ORTHODONTICS
We’ll begin with a consultation, completing a precise dental scan to map out a custom Invisalign treatment plan just for you. There are no teeth molds involved. Instead, Invisalign’s powerful iTero and ClinCheck software builds a 3D model of your teeth, calculating the correct force for each tooth movement, which helps us ensure that each tooth moves into place in the correct order. We’ll even show you a preview of your new smile.
Ordering, Fitting and Replacement
You will receive custom aligners made for your unique specifications, which are similar in cost to traditional braces. Typically, you can expect your new Invisalign aligners within 2-3 weeks of your consultation.
When you pick up your first aligners, we will double-check that the fit is perfect, advise you about what to expect, and answer any questions you may have about next steps. And, we’ll continue to support you with regular checkups to confirm that the alignment process is on track. Periodically, we’ll need to replace your existing Invisalign trays with new ones.
