Clear Aligners

Feel the confidence that straightened teeth can add to your smile.

Do you feel self-conscious when you smile because your teeth aren’t perfect? With clear aligners, we can move your teeth into place for you. Or perhaps you had orthodontics a while ago and haven’t been wearing your retainer? We can use clear aligners to move things back to where they were.

At Chatterton Way Dental, we use Canadian-made clear aligners from Canadian companies to straighten out your smile and give you more confidence in your appearance. As an added bonus, you may find that it’s easier to clean straighter, less crowded teeth.

Clear aligners are ideal for people with slightly crooked, crowded, tilted, or gapped teeth. If you have more complex issues affecting the function of your jaw and teeth, we will usually refer you to an orthodontist, since significant tooth movement requiring conventional braces, complicated appliances and/or surgery may be involved.

How long do I need to wear aligners?

The length of treatment time depends on your situation—it could take as little as a few months or over a year. Once it’s complete, we will fit you for a nighttime retainer to help keep everything lined up in your mouth.

Are clear aligners covered by insurance?

Insurance often covers a portion of the cost of orthodontics. If you have dental insurance, we will create a treatment plan and send it to your insurance company to see what will be covered and get pre-approved before beginning treatment.

What our patients have said...

Jennifer did an excellent job with my cleaning, super gentle and careful. Dr. Foulkes was very kind and took his time to do a thorough exam and explain some questions about my health. I am so happy to have found a new permanent dentist. Thank you!
