What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces. The treatment involves the use of 3D computer imaging technology to create a series of clear aligners, which are changed every two weeks, to gradually move the teeth into a beautiful, healthy smile.

Our Invisalign Melbourne treatment is ideal for patients who want a more incognito teeth-straightening solution. They are often more suited to people with more minor teeth misalignments.

Is Invisalign pain-free?

The level of pain is dependent on your teeth sensitivity; however, most people experience some pain for the first day or two of each aligner – which is generally changed every two weeks. This is because the new aligners cause the teeth to slowly shift into the correct position, and this can result in discomfort. Although it is important to note that this discomfort is far less than the pain of traditional braces, and the results really are worth it!

Are aligners completely invisible?

Invisalign aligners are transparent, making them extremely unnoticeable – especially when compared to traditional braces. However, depending on your treatment requirements – you may need some small attachments placed onto your teeth to help with the movement process. Attachments are the same colour as your teeth, although they may be slightly more noticeable. At the completion of Invisalign treatment, any necessary attachments will be removed, leaving you with a flawless smile.

As Invisalign is far less noticeable than traditional braces, it is an extremely popular option for Adult Orthodontic Treatment.

How long do I have to wear them?

Invisalign patients are required to wear their aligners for 22 hours a day to achieve the best teeth straightening results. It is important to remember that while wearing your aligners, you can only drink cold water. They must be removed while eating, drinking alcohol, hot beverages or sugary drinks to avoid damage and staining. We also recommend bringing you Invisalign case and a small toothbrush with you when out and about, so when you eat and drink, you are able to clean your teeth before putting your aligners back in. While this is not essential, it helped to keep your teeth and aligners clean.

What are the Invisalign costs?

At Gorgeous Smiles, we offer a free first consultation in which we can give you a quote on the cost of your personal Invisalign treatment. As the Invisalign treatment duration and requirements are dependent on the dental needs of each patient. There is no blanket price for treatment. The best way to get an idea of the costs of your treatment is to speak to an Invisalign dentist; who can provide you with a personalised and accurate figure, as well as talk you through our payment plan options.
