4. As always, instruments and equipment are properly sterilized to kill all microorganisms.

Crooked teeth can affect your appearance and your oral health, but many patients resist the idea of metal braces.

Our Coquitlam, BC, practice offers Invisalign®, a comfortable and removable alternative to traditional braces.

So what makes Invisalign unique?

Straighten Your Teeth the Simple and Discreet Way

Virtually Invisible

Crafted from clear plastic, Invisalign trays are so discreet that those around you may not even notice you are wearing them.

More Comfortable than Braces

Dr. Alex Wong and Dr. Vanessa Lee will customize your Invisalign trays so they fit comfortably against your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires or brackets to irritate the inside of your mouth.

Convenient and Removable

Since the aligners are removable, you can brush and floss normally during your Invisalign treatment. In addition, there are no diet restrictions, so you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods.

Millions of Patients  Have Achieved Beautiful Smiles with Invisalign Aligners

The Perfect Invisalign Candidate Is: 



In order for your teeth to reach their proper positions, Invisalign aligners need to be worn 20 to 22 hours every day. To get the most out of your treatment, you will need to be responsible and committed to your treatment plan.

Concerned with Discretion

Teens and adults are great candidates for Invisalign because they enjoy the discreet nature of invisible braces. In general, their smiles have also stopped developing, making it easier to design a precise and predictable treatment plan.

Treatable with Clear Braces

Invisalign can treat a wide range of orthodontic issues. But there are some cases in which traditional braces with metal brackets and wires will provide the best treatment outcomes. Drs. Wong and Lee will conduct a smile assessment to determine which option can help you achieve a healthy smile.
