Get the results of traditional braces, with a simple, inconspicuous look!
Invisalign aligners combine the dental science and effectiveness of traditional metal braces with the art of clear, translucent aligners. This means you can go about your daily life with a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign is an alternative to metal braces that has the ability to fix patients misaligned teeth, with a discreet and effective look.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that are virtually invisible and are able to be removed when eating, drinking, taking photos and even playing sport. Invisalign clear aligners work by applying gentle pressure to the teeth, helping them to move into the the desired position over time.
Invisalign treatments are slowly becoming more and more popular, especially when used as an alternative to conventional metal braces. Invisalign gives you the options to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Your aligners are virtually invisible
Arguably the greatest benefit of Invisalign is the fact that it is virtually invisible. When wearing Invisalign, it can be almost impossible for your family, friends and colleagues to even tell that you’re undergoing orthodontics treatment.
Removable when you need
When you are eating, drinking or brushing your teeth, your Invisalign aligners are easy to remove. This means you are able to clean your teeth and aligners properly each time.
Successfully, straight smiles
Invisalign is not only just as effective as traditional metal braces, it can also be more comfortable during treatment.
Invisalign allows for fewer orthodontic appointments as adjustments don’t need to be made to the appliance on an ongoing basis. You will be given a few sets of aligner trays each time you visit, allowing you to graduate to the next aligner in the series yourself, rather than having the orthodontist do it for you.
