Invisalign clear custom aligners can be an ideal choice for Victoria teens and adults who want to achieve a straighter smile but don't want the bulkier appearance of traditional braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment consisting of a series of clear, custom aligners that straighten your teeth much like braces do, but without the need for metal brackets or wires. This makes Invisalign aligners an excellent, low-profile alternative to standard braces for many adults and teens.
Our dentists at InHarmony Dental Care can help you weigh the benefits of Invisalign vs braces, to determine the right teeth straightening choice for you.
What are the key features of Invisalign?
Because Invisalign aligners are made from a thin clear plastic material, they are much less visible to the casual observer than traditional braces are - giving you the appearance of wearing no braces at all.
Invisalign aligners are also removable. This means that brushing and flossing are as easy as ever, and you won't need to give up any of the foods you love to eat.
Since clear aligners are made from a smooth plastic material they may be more comfortable to wear, and cause less irritation than traditional braces. Invisalign clear aligners also allow you to enjoy the appearance of your smile as it transforms as your treatment progresses.

How does Invisalign work?
During your first consultation at our Straight Smile Centre, your dentist will determine if Invisalign is right for you. If you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment we will then develop a personalized treatment plan and an Invisalign cost estimate for you.
Your dentist will take digital impressions and photographs of your teeth and send these, along with the treatment plan, to Align Technologies headquarters, where they will be transformed, using 3D computer technology, into your custom Invisalign aligners.
You'll wear each set of custom aligners for about two weeks before switching to the next set in your series. Each aligner will gently move your teeth in small increments until the final result is achieved: straighter teeth!
Nothing to hold you back!
Because there are no metal wires and brackets, many patients feel that Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear than braces, and because the aligners are removable, eating, brushing and flossing are no problem.
You can will be able to enjoy your favourite foods and smile without holding back. With Invisalign, there's nothing to hide!
