Invisalign is the ground-breaking brace that’s responsible for straightening over 4 million smiles. When it launched in 2000, it turned orthodontics on its head and completely transformed the way we move teeth.
Invisalign brace uses a series of clear removable aligners to gradually and gently move your teeth into the desired position. Better still, the aligners are completely transparent, so they’re really inconspicuous – even up close.
How does Invisalign work?
Each aligner should be worn for one week, before you move onto the next one in the series: gradually moving your teeth little-by-little until they reach their final position. Along the way we’ll keep a close eye on your progress to make sure everything is moving correctly and in the right direction.
For the best results it’s important to wear your aligners for between 20 and 22 hours a day – just take them out for eating, drinking and to brush and floss your teeth. Luckily for you, this means you can continue to enjoy all your favourite foods throughout your treatment, as well as keep on top of your oral hygiene routine: ensuring a healthy, beautiful end result.
What can Invisalign help with?
Here are some of the problems we can treat using this multi-talented brace:
- Crowded and crooked teeth.
- Wide spacing between teeth.
- Crossbites – where one or more of your upper teeth bite on the inside of your lower teeth.
- Under bites – where your lower teeth sit in front of your upper teeth.
- Deep bites – where your upper teeth overlap your bottom teeth (some overlap is desirable).

How to Transform your smile with Invisalign
- Step 1: Book in with one of our experienced dentists, for an Orthodontic consultation, to discuss treatment options and which orthodontic treatment works best for you.
- Step 2: Have a scan or impressions taken to assess your smile in more detail. This will help create an amazing 3D simulation of how your teeth will look, so you can assess the before and after looks.
- Step 3: Confirm the treatment and get started. Once you are happy and the dentist is satisfied that you are dentally fit, we can move on to the next step where your aligners will be ordered. You will be then booked in with your dentist for your fitting appointment and will be presented with a goodie bag and everything you need to get started.
- Step 4: You will be seeing your dentist every 4-5 weeks and be given new aligners at each visit to help your teeth move week by week. Your dentist will be able to track your progress and make sure you are well on your way. Once you are finished, you can choose to whiten your teeth, have some composite bonding and contouring done to achieve that dream smile. Your teeth will be held in place with complimentary removable retainers, that you wear at night which we will happily provide for you.
