Invisalign in Niagara

We provide expert Invisalign treatment for dental patients from Niagara-on-the-Lake, St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, and across the Niagara Region.


Drink and Eat What You Want!

Invisalign® invisible aligners can be quickly removed before eating, drinking, or your regular dental hygiene routine, then put back in place just as quickly. Invisalign invisible aligners not only straighten your teeth but do so without limiting your ability to enjoy the foods you like or to take proper care of your teeth. To get optimal results, you will need to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day.

Customized and Comfortable

With their customized fit and smooth edges, Invisalign invisible aligners are more comfortable than regular metal braces and avoid the gum and cheek irritation caused by exposed sharp metal. In addition, because the effects of the Invisalign straightening system are noticeable even before the treatment has been completed, you can start to enjoy the benefits of your new smile even earlier.

Boost Your Confidence

If crooked teeth leave you feeling too self-conscious to smile, Invisalign invisible aligners can give you a confidence-boosting smile you’ve always wanted. Patients of all ages, from children and teens to older adults, can benefit from Invisalign. It’s never too late to transform your smile!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are Invisalign?

    Invisalign uses clear aligners that cover your teeth, gently pulling them into position over time. Clear and can be taken off — no one needs to know you are straightening your teeth. Our Niagara-on-the-Lake dental office can create your custom Invisalign aligners quickly and easily.

  • How does Invisalign work?

    You wear each pair of invisible aligners for roughly two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, and clean your teeth. When you replace each set of clear aligners with the next, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week —until they have straightened to the final position your dentist has planned.
    Your Invisalign-trained dentist uses 3D computer imaging technology to map out a treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position. This imaging technology enables the design of a personalized series of custom-made aligners. The patient then wears each set of aligners for about two weeks while the teeth move incrementally. After about two weeks, your dentist replaces the current aligner with the next one until achieving the final position.

  • Does insurance cover Invisalign?

    Yes, if your insurance plan provides coverage for orthodontics, it should also cover Invisalign.Dr Clark of Niagara-on-the-Lake has provided Invisalign since it was introduced more than ten years ago and has helped many people attain beautiful, confident smiles with virtually invisible aligners.Niagara-on-the-Lake Dental offers general and cosmetic dentistry services such as dental implants, Invisalign invisible aligners and dental veneers. New patients welcome!

  • Does Invisalign treatment cause pain?

    Every time you change to a new aligner, there may be some temporary discomfort while your teeth adjust to their new position. That is entirely normal and is a good sign that the treatment is working.

  • How long will it take for Invisalign to straighten my teeth?

    Treatment durations vary from case to case, but typically the total treatment time is 3 to 6 months for the express plan and 9 to 24 months for the full plan. The typical patient can expect to wear 5 to 10 aligners for the express program and between 18 and 30 for the full plan. Still, both programs will vary from patient to patient. 

  • What do Invisalign aligners look like?

    Invisalign aligners are clear and almost invisible. If you've ever viewed clear tooth-whitening trays, that should give you a good idea of how aligners look. Invisalign invisible aligners are custom-sized to fit and adjust your teeth.

  • Is Invisalign right for you?

    Invisalign can treat a variety of dental conditions, which, in the past, were usually only treated with traditional braces: overly crowded teeth, widely-spaced teeth, cross-bites, overbites and underbites.Particularly at the beginning of your treatment, as your teeth first start to adjust, you will likely feel some pain. Patients who have worn both traditional braces and Invisalign tend to agree that Invisalign is less painful than braces.Suppose you seek a way to correct crooked or misaligned teeth without the hassle or barriers of traditional braces. In that case, Invisalign is the ideal solution in many cases. Ask yourself if you would like to see yourself smile brighter, be more confident and improve your confidence without the need for wires.

  • What are some other alternatives to Invisalign?

    Invisalign is likely the biggest name out there. Still, there are plenty of in-office and at-home alternatives to consider.

  • What can I expect with Invisalign treatment?

    After we receive your invisible aligners, you'll come to our office for an appointment to check them for fit and necessary adjustments. Then, you'll wear your aligners all day, every day, except when you eat, floss, and clean your teeth. Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you will be able to briefly remove them any time you need to throughout the day.Wearing Invisalign is comfortable and fits smoothly into your typical day. You'll need to wear each aligner set for two weeks before changing to the next set. At first, your aligners will tightly fit because their design gently and gradually moves your teeth. After a few days, your teeth will incrementally move to their new position. You'll start to notice that your aligners will feel a little loose over time. Even when they begin to feel loose, don't switch them early. Wear them for the entire two weeks. That gives your teeth and gums time to adjust to the new position. Changing aligners too early could detrimentally affect your results.
