Invisalign Treatment Scarborough

Are you seeking the perfect smile without the hassle of traditional braces? Invisalign offers a modern and personalized solution to your orthodontic needs. At Dr. Michael Handler Dentistry in Scarborough, we proudly offer Invisalign, empowering you to discreetly and comfortably achieve the smile you've always wanted.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the contemporary alternative to braces, employing a series of clear aligners made specifically for you. These aligner trays are smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that fit over your teeth and gradually shift them into place, following a precise plan designed for you. There are no metal brackets or tightening involved. Instead, every two weeks, you switch to a new set of clear aligners until your treatment is complete. This allows you to achieve the smile you desire with minimal interference in your daily life.

Advantages of Invisalign

Invisalign offers several advantages compared to traditional braces:

  • Discreet: The clear plastic aligners used for Invisalign are virtually invisible, making it one of the most popular orthodontic solutions today.
  • Removable: Invisalign aligners are designed to be removable, allowing you to eat, drink, and clean your teeth with ease.
  • Comfortable: The thin, low-profile aligners are much more comfortable than wires and brackets, reducing the risk of irritation.
  • Fewer Dental Visits: Since the aligners don't require adjustments like traditional braces, you'll have fewer visits to the dentist.
  • Faster Treatment: Invisalign often delivers optimal results in less time.

The Invisalign Process


During your initial consultation with one of our experienced dentists, your teeth will be examined, treatment expectations reviewed, and eligibility for Invisalign determined. If you're a candidate, a series of custom-made clear aligners will be designed using a 3D model of your teeth. The number of aligners and the duration of wear will be tailored to your specific needs.

Candidates for Invisalign

Invisalign is suitable for candidates with mild to moderate conditions, including crowded teeth, unattractive gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. It can address a wide range of issues, including crooked teeth, gum defects, and excessive plaque accumulation. Properly aligned teeth help gums fit more securely, offering better protection against periodontal problems. Invisalign aligners gently move your teeth into the correct position with clear and comfortable trays that won't irritate your cheeks or gums.

What to Expect With Invisalign

When you begin treatment, you may experience a slight lisp or mild discomfort as your teeth adjust. This discomfort indicates that your treatment is working. Over time, your bite may feel different. On a positive note, many patients receive compliments about their shinier and straighter teeth, thanks to the smoothness of the aligners.

Throughout treatment, your Invisalign trays will likely change every two weeks, with variations based on the rate of teeth movement. For optimal results, wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

Discuss Invisalign costs with your provider, which typically start at around $3,000. Prices may vary based on case complexity, treatment duration, and insurance coverage. Remember, your smile is an investment in yourself. Invisalign aligners are removable and discreet, fitting seamlessly into your daily life while maintaining your oral hygiene
