Great smiles don’t come easy to everyone. Quite often, teeth need to be straightened or gaps need to be minimized to create the perfect smile. The Invisalign® process provides a user-friendly method to do so without being highly visible. Wearing Invisalign® daily allows you to improve the appearance of your teeth more quickly than using traditional braces, and it is less noticeable. If you are concerned that wearing Invisalign® daily can become problematic, don’t be. As long as you remember to follow your dentist’s instructions and a few tips, you should be able to enjoy wearing Invisalign® daily without any issues at all.
If you want to continue wearing your Invisalign® daily without experiencing any problems, you need to take proper care of your teeth. You should continue brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day, removing your aligners to do so. Maintaining proper oral care is essential to prevent the growth of bacteria on your teeth and below the gum line.
Since the aligners are easy to remove and place back on, you should have no problems at all keeping them clean. Just use the special Invisalign® cleaning kit or use a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste to gently clean them. Rinse with water, and you’re finished. Wearing Invisalign® daily is easy when you keep them clean, because they feel great and don’t cause any type of painful infection.
Each time you get ready to eat, just remove your aligners before you do. This helps to keep them clean, while also allowing you to enjoy the foods that you love. As a result, you’ll enjoy wearing Invisalign® daily because you won’t experience any restrictions in your day-to-day activities.
Just because you are wearing Invisalign® aligners daily doesn’t mean that you can’t continue to do the activities that you love. You don’t need to do anything differently. If you play sports requiring a mouth guard, you can still wear one, just take off your aligner first and put it back on later.

In existence for over 30 years, dental veneers are still not commonly understood or utilized by many dental patients in Vancouver.
While most people have heard of whitening teeth with bleach treatments, they are not aware that they are being exposed to the bleaching alternative almost daily. In fact, dental veneers are worn by actors, models and professionals and play a huge roll in the cosmetic dentistry industry.
|“Dental veneers do more than just make your smile look beautiful, they can also help fix for biting problems, help fill in gaps between teeth, or straighten overlapping teeth.”|
Dental veneers are similar to acrylic fingernails, where a replacement is shaped and placed on the natural nail. Veneers are made of a thin layer of custom-made porcelain or composite material, which are then placed over the natural tooth.
However, unlike an acrylic nail, veneers are incredibly tough. Patients with dental veneers are still able to bite into carrots, eat fudge, or enjoy anything else they would normally. Dental veneers are completely sealed against the natural tooth, lasting for several years without regular maintenance.
While professional teeth whitening may have a few limitations, veneers are used to solve a variety of oral health issues. Bleaching is typically used only to lighten teeth, without the ability to change the position, size or shape of teeth.
Dental veneers do more than just make your smile look beautiful, they can also help fix for biting problems, help fill in gaps between teeth, or straighten overlapping teeth.
Dental veneers also allow you to keep much of your natural tooth, which is always ideal. Veneers are custom-made to cover just the front and biting surface of your teeth, which leaves the back area untouched.
Don’t forget, if you are interested in any cosmetic dentistry solutions from 123 Kerrisdale Dental Centre, it is incredibly important to maintain proper oral health.

Cosmetic Dentistry has become increasingly more accepted for patients thanks to popular reality shows that focus on dramatic smile makeovers. Dental patients in Vancouver are beginning to understand how easy it is to create their ideal smile with the available cosmetic dentistry solutions.
|“Cosmetic Dentistry in Vancouver, BC has come a long way in providing smile correction. Dental patients can benefit greatly by taking advantage of gummy smile treatment and other cosmetic dentistry solutions.”|
We are often asked questions about what a cosmetic dentist can accomplish at 123 Kerrisdale Dental Centre, and many patients are surprised at all the smile correction solutions we provide.
One popular cosmetic procedure is “gummy smile” treatment or correction. A gummy smile occurs when a large section of gums appear when the patient smiles or laughs. In some cases, there will be more gum area visible than teeth.
Patients complain about their “gummy smile” because they seem to resemble an adolescent, with prominent gums and small teeth. Generally, this smile comes from genetics, which causes the typical gum development to stop early, leaving teeth shorter than they should be.
A gummy smile correction can be treated in a few different ways. First, patients with less severe or moderate gum problems can be treated by lifting the gums and utilizing dental veneers. This “gum-lift”, similar to a face-lift, sculpts the gums to a natural height, allowing veneers to be affixed to the teeth to allow for a beautiful, new smile.
Second, for severe gum disproportion, treatment can include the physical breaking and repositioning of the upper jaw. This can require a healing time of up to two months and the jaw will be wired shut.
Cosmetic Dentistry in Vancouver has come a long way in providing smile correction. Patients at 123 Kerrisdale Dental Centre are able to benefit greatly by taking advantage of gummy smile treatment and other cosmetic dentistry solutions.

Many patients at 123 Kerrisdale Dental Centre are still confused about the relatively new Invisalign technology, we are frequently asked: Does Invisalign work? Is Invisalign for adults or teenagers? What are hidden braces?
|“Invisalign can help you fix crowding, spacing issues, crossbites, overbites and underbites. Soon, you will have a beautiful, healthy and straight smile!”|
Today, more and more teenagers and adults are being introduced to the innovative Invisalign technology. Patients who are seeking an invisible, aesthetic treatment for crooked teeth are looking for a alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment.
How does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign utilizes an innovative, 3-D computer imaging system, which works to create a complete, customized treatment plan for each patient. You will be able to see your initial position of your teeth, along with the final preferred position.
From there, the team at 123 Kerrisdale Dental Centre work to create a series of custom-made aligners, which work to move teeth gradually over a two-to-three week period. After this set, the aligner will be replaced until you reach the desired teeth position.
Why should I invest in Invisalign?
More and more adults and teenagers are choosing Invisalign over traditional braces for a variety of reasons. Due to the fact that Invisalign is removable, you are able to eat or drink whatever you like during treatment. In addition, patients are able to brush and floss teeth without trouble, allowing for better oral health.
So, does Invisalign work?
Yes! Invisalign can work for you to correct a wide range of dental or orthodontic problems. At 123 Kerrisdale Dental Centre we can help you fix crowding, spacing issues, crossbites, overbites and underbites. Soon, you will have a beautiful, healthy and straight smile!
