Full-Service Dental Office in Thornhill providing orthodontic treatment solutions
Invisalign, as the name suggests, is a new invisible alignment method for your teeth! Functionally, it works the same as traditional braces, but aesthetically, it has the advantage of being a transparent acrylic resin that is practically invisible when worn. In most cases, Invisalign can solve the same problems that braces can: crooked teeth, gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, and overcrowded teeth. Invisalign, using the same principle as traditional braces, exert controlled forces on your teeth to gradually move them to the desired position. Typically, every 4-6 weeks, a new Invisalign retainer is made to continue the alignment process until the teeth are fully aligned. Afterward, fixed retainers keep the teeth in their healthy shape.
Process of getting Invisalign
When you come in for your FREE consultation at Emerald Dental Clinic, our specialized dentists and orthodontists will thoroughly perform a dental examination to define the best path forward and qualify you for either Invisalign treatment or other avenues for teeth alignment. Once a personal Invisalign treatment plan is made for you, an impression of your teeth is sent to the dental laboratory where a special software shapes your aligners (aka Invisalign) to make them guide the shape of your teeth towards the perfect cosmetic and healthy alignment.
PROS & CONS VS. BRACES
- Unlike braces, Invisalign can be taken off to eat, brush and floss but must be worn between 18-22 hours per day.
- Invisalign treatments take about a year. Braces take 2-4 years.
- Invisalign treatments are substantially cheaper than traditional braces.
- Invisalign retainers are customized to apply controlled pressure gradually and are more comfortable and less painful than braces.

Hear From our Happy Patients
My experience at Emerald Dental Care was excellent from beginning to end. The staff jumped through hoops to accommodate my special circumstances, and I wasn’t even a regular patient – it was my first time visiting the office. I called them explaining that my benefits were ending in a few days and that I was in a rush to get some complicated dental work done which my regular dentist couldn’t complete in time. The whole office pulled strings, strategized, and did whatever they could do to ensure the procedure was done on time. I’ve never felt so appreciated before by strangers. Besides their kindness and sincerity, they’re also highly professional: the procedure went perfectly. I highly recommend Emerald Dental Care.
Same Day Dental Crown (CEREC)
Today was my 2-year-old daughter’s first dental appointment. My wife and I were predicting to have a tough day but surprisingly Dr. Saeidi turned it to a very pleasant day using her professional skills and experiences. She did 2 dental fillings and complete exam and cleaning on her teeth and my daughter didn’t even move her head or didn’t even cry for a moment. I’m so glad that I have come to this dental office based on my friend’s referral and more importantly founded a very positive mentality for my daughter that I’m sure will last for good.
As a member of a large healthcare facility in Toronto, I can surely say; this dental office is going to be referred and held in the highest regard. The administration staff are welcoming and personable, the dental assistants are efficient and polite and Dr. Saeidi was compassionate, wonderful bedside manner, wonderful demeanor, succinct, and efficient. It was the best dental experience I have ever had and I will be recommending them to anyone I know that comes to me with a dental question. Thank you all!!!
