Invisalign vs Braces

Both Invisalign and braces are designed to straighten your teeth and improve your smile and the overall oral health. Invisalign and braces give your teeth better position, improve their look and ensure their proper function. These days cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever. Not only we want to have healthy teeth but we also want our teeth to look good. Invisalign is a popular cosmetic procedure that helps you straighten your teeth without having anybody to even notice. The question is whether or not is Invisalign better than traditional braces? Read our latest blog post or call your Surrey dentist to learn more!


Dental braces consists of metal brackets that are attached to your teeth. They are tied together by wires and tiny rubber bands. Your orthodontist or other dental professional is responsible for affixing the braces on your teeth.


Invisalign, as the name suggests, are designed to be invisible (that is why they are also called clear braces). Invisalign Invisaligntrays are made from BPA-free virtually clear plastic and are worn over your teeth. Your certified Surrey Invisalign provider will use x-rays and impressions to create a 3-D image of your teeth which will enable him to create custom made aligner trays for you. There are no significant risks associated with wearing Invisalign clear braces. In addition they can not only straighten your teeth but also fix your jaw problems.

Our Green Apple Dental principal Surrey dentist Dr. Pavandeep Kooner has been a certified Invisalign provider since 2005 and she has helped hundreds of patients to straighten their teeth and achieve the smile of their dreams.
