Invisalign For Overbite

If you have an overbite, you may be interested in correcting it through Invisalign. Invisalign is the best way to correct your overbite with a safe, effective procedure that will have your smile looking happier and healthier than ever before. The following guide will help you understand the essentials that you need to know about using Invisalign to correct an overbite.

Cosmetic and Practical Concerns for Overbites

Overbites can cause a variety of problems if they are considered too large and are left uncorrected. Dentists estimate overbites using a percentage; typically, an overbite of between 5 to 25% is acceptable, whereas overbites with a larger percentage are considered to be a “deep bite.” Uncorrected overbites that are too large could potentially cause your teeth to wear down over time, which will damage your tooth enamel and increase your chances for tooth sensitivity and tooth decay. Overbites can also cause teeth grinding and jaw pain, depending on the severity of the overbite. 

Does Invisalign Work for Overbites?

Yes! Invisalign can work to correct your deep bite overbite. Invisalign may be recommended by your dentist since it is efficient, works with many different types of teeth and teeth problems, and is considered to be an ideal treatment for people who are interested in tooth correction without getting a traditional braces treatment. 

You should consult with your dentist about whether or not Invisalign is the right treatment option for you. Whether or not it is recommended may depend on the percentage of your overbite, the overall state of your teeth, and other factors as determined by your dentist. 

How does Invisalign Work

Invisalign is relatively simple. First, you will have a consultation with your treatment team in order to determine whether or not Invisalign is right for you as well as what results you may be able to expect with Invisalign. Next, you will undergo a unique scan that will create a 3D map of your teeth. Your treatment team will then create a customized treatment plan using this map. 

Once your plan is in place, your treatment team will create custom Invisalign aligners based on your needs. These aligners will then be periodically replaced as your teeth adjust, allowing for your teeth to be gradually corrected over time. Invisalign is designed to be effectively “invisible” when compared to traditional braces, so they will hardly be noticeable when you are wearing them during your everyday life.

The length of your Invisalign treatment plan will vary depending on the level of correction that your overbite requires as well as the overall response time of your teeth. Most people see the anticipated results within 12 to 18 months, though this can vary from person to person. Your Invisalign treatment team will discuss the expected results with you, along with the projected completion date for your Invisalign treatment. 

If you have a large or deep overbite that you would like corrected, then you should consult with our team about your options. Invisalign, which is one of the most popular corrective teeth procedures out there today, may be right for you.

Are You Looking For A Dentist in Port Coquitlam?
We Are Accepting New Patients!


  • I have been a patient of Dr. Chahal’s for a year now and he is the best dentist I have been to. I have tried out a few over the years. He is friendly, super knowledgeable and genuinely cares. I would recommend this dentist to anyone who is afraid of dentists or anyone who is looking to switch because they are unhappy with their current dentist. He is wonderful. And he is young so he won’t be retiring anytime soon. (I hope!) Five-star dentist. Hands down.

  • I have been seeing Dr. Chahal for two years now. He is a great dentist. He takes the time to explain procedures and options and he always has time for questions. He makes me feel comfortable and confident in the dental procedures we decide on.

  • My Wife, son, and I have been Dr. Chahal’s patients for at least 5 years and I would say that he is the best dentist we have had. He makes you feel comfortable and relaxed when visiting him. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist.

  • Dr. Chahal is the best dentist I’ve ever had, and as someone who has had quite a bit of dental work, that’s saying a lot. He’s a genuine and personable guy who does excellent work, and does not quit until you’re happy with the results.

  • Just returned from Dr Chahal—once again, impressed with the level of comfort and professionalism Dr. Chahal provides his patients—procedure done quickly and painlessly

  • Dr. Chahal and his staff are very informative and genuinely caring. They go above and beyond to ensure each dental appointment is a positive experience. Dr Chahal and his staff explain all procedures throughly and encourage you to ask questions if you have any. Thank you for being so helpful and gentle! I recommend you to all my friends and family.

  • Dr. Chahal and the staff are very professional and informative about the procedure(s) required. What I appreciate the most is the fact that they really care about you and ensure that you are well informed before any procedure is started. He has performed 2 very difficult crown replacements on me in the past 3 months and the results have been very good. Visits to the dentist have never been my favourite activity, but the care, comfort, and friendliness provided by Dr. Chahal and his staff have made my dental appointments a far less stressful experience.

  • I have always been very nervous about visiting the dentist until I started to see Dr. Chahal. He is very personable, extremely knowlagble, and 110% dedicated to his patients. I feel relaxed and very comfortable at all of my appointments. He is wonderful with my 11-year-old son. He says he is the best dentist ever!! I would highly recommended him to anyone:)

  • I just had 2 wisdom teeth removed, Dr. Chahal and his staff did everything to ensure my comfort. Though it was uncomfortable and painful after the fact, this was certainly not his fault! He followed up with a phone call in the evening to see how I was, which I found comforting and was grateful for. All in all, I would highly recommend Dr. Chahal to anyone looking for a dentist.

  • Dr. Chahal is very professional and very thorough, he even offered a few tid bits about the medications he would be using during my procedures. He did a thorough exam while explaining the options for each issue I had. I needed a root canal and he asked me if i knew anything about it. I explained the horror stories I had and he did a fantastic job in making me comfortable and explaining the procedure in a simple yet understandable manner. He also followed up with a phone call in the evening to ask if i had any questions and reiterated some calming suggestions. A few days after the procedure, I felt great and know I was well taken care of by the staff and Dr. Chahal.

  • Dr. Chahal is amazing. I am 30 years old and I had avoided seeing a dentist for years because I was terrified of the needles and what they might find. I first saw Dr.Chahal when I was 25 and, ever since, he has made me feel like family and right at home. He is very personable and makes sure that I understand what it is he is doing and why, and has single-handedly eliminated my fear of going to the dentist. I honestly have almost fallen asleep a few times in his chair, that is how comfortable he has made me and I wouldn’t want to have to ever see anyone else. I highly recommend anyone to see him and I have praised his work to all of my friends.

  • I hand’t seen a dentist in years because I was so afraid!! I was scared of needles and the work I needed. Dr. Chahal and his staff helped me and worked me up to appointments without needing sedation. He is great with needles and genuinely cares about his patients. I’m very happy I found him!

  • I am impressed with Dr. Chahal’s ability, his people skills and his dedication. He is approachable and an excellent listener. If you are upset, he comforts you. Personally, he has replaced old fillings, 2 crowns and has completed some dental cosmetic work. As he works, he asks how you are doing and let’s you know when it is very important to be still. Before he begins he takes the opportunity to educate you on your teeth and explains the procedure he will follow. He has phoned me in the evening to check on my status following a challenging session. When he gives me the freezing shot, I barely observe the needle prior to the shot and do not feel the needle break my skin. If you have any apprehension about dentists, give Dr. Chahal a chance. He has your best interest at heart.

  • can’t say enough about Dr. Chahal and his assistant, Kim. His dental work is excellent! He is the only dentist I have been to who can give a needle with NO pain. Excellent! He has done extensive work (posts and crowns, bridges, etc.) in my mouth and all of it was not only painless, tension free, but was also of the very highest quality. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Chahal to anyone who wants the VERY BEST! The staff are also efficient, helpful, and friendly. A great experience on each visit. Thanks so so much!

  • Great demeanour, very knowledgeable. I appreciate the fact that he treats me like a friend and not a number.
