In the past, metal braces were the primary treatment for crooked teeth. Today, orthodontic patients have a clear alternative.

Invisalign® uses virtually invisible aligner trays to straighten teeth. Brackets and wires are no longer necessary for a healthy smile.

Learn how the dentists of Vitacare Dental Centre in Coquitlam, BC, can improve your smile and your oral health with Invisalign.

Watch How Invisalign Works to Straighten Your Teeth

Invisalign is an easy, low-maintenance way to straighten your teeth. These "invisible braces" can transform your smile in about 6-12 months.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign has a number of important benefits that set it apart from orthodontic techniques of the past. These are just a few reasons why patients are so interested in Invisalign treatment:

Virtually Invisible

Made from durable, transparent plastic, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. Other people won't see the aligners, even up close. Imagine undergoing orthodontic care without anyone noticing.

More Comfortable Than Braces

The clear plastic aligner trays are custom-designed by advanced computer technology to ensure an optimal fit over your teeth. Better yet, there are no wires or brackets that will scrape or irritate the inside of your mouth.

Convenient and Removable

Because Invisalign aligners are easy to remove, you can brush and floss normally during the entire course of treatment. In addition, there are no diet restrictions, so you can continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods.

How Invisalign Works Understanding the Basics

Invisalign is a simple and effective way to correct malocclusion (a misaligned bite). Millions of people have benefited from Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign aligner

Clear Plastic Aligner Trays

While traditional orthodontics uses brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear aligners. These custom trays slip right over your teeth, exerting carefully controlled pressure to shift each tooth into the ideal position.

Invisalign aligner

Worn 20-22 Hours a Day

For this system to be effective, you must wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day. You should only remove your aligners when you eat, drink beverages other than water, and brush or floss.

Invisalign aligner

New Aligners Every Two Weeks

You will discard each aligner after wearing it for two weeks. You will then wear the next aligners in the series. The process repeats over the course of a year to 18 months, gradually straightening your smile.

How Your Invisalign Treatment Plan Will Work at Vitacare Dental Centre

Coquitlam patients visit our dentists for quality orthodontic care and stunning new smiles.
Coquitlam patients visit our dentists for quality orthodontic care and stunning new smiles.

Initial Consultation

Before recommending Invisalign treatment, you will meet Dr. Lee or Dr. Wong for a consultation.

This will allow us to examine your smile and see if Invisalign is right for you. It also gives you an opportunity to ask questions.

Treatment Plan

If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, then we will continue the process.

We will start by creating a treatment plan, and our dentists will likely give you an estimate of how long it will take to complete. Then, we will schedule a fitting appointment.

Invisalign Fitting

In order to create your custom aligners, we will need to capture impressions of your smile that will guide the lab in creating your aligners.

Aligner Cycles

Once you receive your aligners, you can start wearing them in cycles.

As part of your treatment plan, you will wear each aligner for about two weeks before moving on to the next in the series. Our dentists can explain this process to you in detail so that you can straighten your teeth with confidence.

Proper Oral Hygiene During Invisalign Treatment

The clear aligners used during Invisalign treatment make it simple to maintain good oral hygiene. Once the aligners are out of your mouth, you simply need to brush, floss, and keep your trays clean.

Brushing and Flossing

You should brush at least twice a day and floss once a night. This prevents cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. Ideally, you should brush and floss after every meal before putting the aligners back on.

Cleaning Your Aligners

The aligner trays can be cleaned easily using a non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. You should always rinse your aligners with clean cold water before putting them back in your mouth.

Regular Dental Checkups

You will have several follow-up visits to our office in Coquitlam, BC, to monitor the progress of treatment. Be sure to attend all of these follow-ups in addition to your regular dental checkups.

Why Straighten Your Teeth?

Perhaps your teeth are crooked, but you're fine with how your smile looks. Why should you bother with orthodontic treatment?

The benefits of properly aligned teeth are more than cosmetic. For example, straight teeth are easier to clean. When teeth are crooked, plaque and bacteria get stuck in areas that you can't reach with a toothbrush, which can lead to infection. Invisalign can shift your teeth into better alignment, so your oral health can be maintained more easily.

Also, a misaligned bite can put improper strain on the jaw muscle, which can lead to TMJ issues and headaches. Fixing the alignment of your smile can optimize the function of your jaw joint.

Our dentists can help you understand all of the benefits of orthodontics when you visit our office in Coquitlam for a consultation.

"I have been coming to Vitacare for a couple of years now and I only have good things to say. Dr Lee and Dr wong are amazing dentists. The hygienists are gentle to the point where you can almost take a nap . The staff is friendly and go above and beyond to accommodate you. Highly recommend!" Mike Grudzien

Clear Aligners vs. Braces

Braces can be bulky and noticeable. Invisalign, on the other hand, is much more discreet than braces — and just as effective. If you want to find out if braces or Invisalign is the best solution for your needs, our Coquitlam dentists can provide the answers you need at your next appointment.

The Differences Between Invisalign and Braces


Traditional braces are made up of metal brackets that are attached to the teeth and wires that exert pressure on the teeth to gradually move them into proper alignment. While braces are an effective method for straightening teeth, and may be required in severe cases of misalignment, Invisalign clear aligners offer an alternative for many patients. By simply placing smooth aligners made from patented SmartTrack material over your teeth, you can achieve the same benefits as braces, with more discretion.


Braces often take two years or more to straighten your teeth — in contrast, Invisalign usually only takes 12 to 18 months. While not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign, we encourage you to ask our dentists about this orthodontic option. You could be well on your way to a straighter smile in a few short months.


When you choose Invisalign, you're choosing a company that actively works to improve the precision and efficacy of their product. Additionally, our Coquitlam, BC, practice takes advantage of the full suite of support that the company provides us, like the ClinCheck preview technology and SmartForce attachments for more complex tooth movement.

Convenient. Comfortable. Clear.

Patients Prefer Invisalign for a Reason

If you want to subtly straighten your teeth, Invisalign's removable clear aligners make it easy. For the right candidates, they are just as effective as braces, but with far fewer restrictions and a much easier daily hygiene routine.

Common Invisalign Questions

Is Invisalign painful?

Treatment doesn't involve any significant pain. While this process may involve some minor soreness or discomfort at the onset of treatment or when you begin wearing a new aligner, your dentist can talk to you about how to best alleviate any tenderness. Considering this treatment doesn't involve any brackets or wires that can irritate the soft tissues of your mouth, it is far more comfortable than braces.

Is Invisalign permanent?

Though Invisalign can bring a long-lasting transformation to your smile, you will need to take care to maintain your results. Just like treatment with metal braces, you will need to wear a simple retainer each night once you have completed your Invisalign treatment. 

Do I need to keep my old aligners?

Yes, you should hold onto your Invisalign aligners even after you shift to a new set in the series. It's possible that your dentist may need a reference for your orthodontic process. Once you are done with Invisalign, we will officially clear you from treatment, allowing you to throw away your aligners. However, many patients keep their final trays in the series to use as a retainer.
