What is invisalign?
Invisalign is a well designed and discreet way of achieving your perfect smile without the hindrance of the visible metal components of conventional braces.
A enchanting smile is the heart of a charming person and, even though subjective, still follows a recipe where the ingredients are mixed together in harmony, Please go to the following link to read more about our philosopy on the ‘The golden proportions of a smile’
How does invisalign work?
- Invisalign uses a series of plastic aligners that move your teeth sequentially. The first aligner matches the position of teeth at the start of treatment and the last aligner matches your teeth in their final position
- Every aligner is worn for 2 weeks and the number of aligners needed to complete the treatment indicates the length of the treatment, i.e. if invisalign has provided 20 aligners, the treatment can last 40 weeks (20 aligners x 2 weeks)
- Aligners must be worn for 22 hours everyday, only being removed for eating, drinking and brushing your teeth.
How long does invisalign treatment take?
This will depend on the number of aligners needed to move your teeth in the desired position. As a guide, in extremely minor cases, it is possible for the treatment to last less than 6 months. For more severe cases, it might last more than 18 months.
Your appointments for invisalign treatment
A free consultation where we can assess your smile characteristics and explain to you what invisalign involves and the expectations of your treatment.
We will show you the expected end result of this treatment. We may use impressions to create a computer generated simulation of your desired results. On approval we will produce the aligners.
Your first set of aligners are fitted. Anchor points (tooth coloured attachments) are placed on your teeth.
We will give you a few aligners at a time so that you can change them every few weeks. You will then have regular appointments to continually review the progress.
