TRANSFORMING SMILES

Invisalign / Clear Aligners Brisbane CBD Dentists

Invisalign & Clear Aligners is a teeth straightening treatment that uses a series of removable and comfortable plastic appliances to move the teeth into the ideal position sequentially. As the names of the many brands suggest, the aligners are clear and near invisible.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

In the exciting area of cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign & Clear Aligners can beautify a smile in just 6-9 months. Invisalign & Clear Aligners are known to be more comfortable and discrete than fixed braces. They have the added advantage of being removed during eating and teeth brushing.

When you are looking to straighten your teeth without the need for traditional fixed braces, Invisalign & Clear Aligners are the modern alternative. Invisalign & Clear Aligners can fix a wide variety of dental issues, from milder cases of slightly crooked teeth to far more significant oral issues like overbite, underbite and crossbite.

Invisalign & Clear Aligners in Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry involves dental treatment procedures in adults to enhance and transform a client's smile when they have healthy and sound teeth. At Brisbane CBD Dentists, we use our sophisticated Digital Smile Design programme to see what our client's teeth need to look like to showcase their best smile. (Click here to learn more about Digital Smile Design).

When teeth are in the wrong place, we move them. Invisalign & Clear Aligners are used to orthodontically move the teeth into the position to best display them during smiling. In many cases, it takes just 6-9 months to give the client a million-dollar smile.

In circumstances where the teeth are in the wrong position AND have other cosmetic shortfalls, such as tooth wear and chipping, a short 3-4 month programme of Invisalign or Clear Aligners can be performed at a pre-cursor to Porcelain Veneers. If the teeth are first moved to the correct smile display position, tooth reduction during porcelain veneers fabrication will be much more conservative. This improves the outcome of the smile and longevity of the porcelain veneers.

Benefits of Invisalign & Clear Aligners

Invisalign & Clear Aligners have many benefits over traditional fixed braces:

  • Removability: the clear plastic aligners are worn for 20-22 hours a day and are removed for eating, cleaning teeth, and for other exceptional occasions.
  • Near Invisible: the trays are clear. This is beneficial for adults wishing to straighten their teeth but hesitate, due to the appearance of traditional fixed braces in mature years. With clear aligners provided at George Street Dental, many clients have shared with us that people rarely notice they are being worn.
  • Far more comfortable: clear aligners are considerably more comfortable than traditional fixed braces. Everything from soreness during teeth movement to the elimination of ulcers during treatment. Emotionally the two are not comparable.
How Invisalign & Clear Aligners work

Photos of the face and teeth together with digital scans of the teeth are uploaded and submitted onto the Invisalign or SmileStyler Clear Aligners portal. We also submit a diagnosis, instructions and treatment goals to the portal and a digital simulation of the re-aligned teeth is proposed to Dr Matthew.

Dr Matthew refines and eventually approves the ideal simulation, signalling fabrication of the clear aligners. Once the aligners arrive, treatment begins. The client receives a sequence of six sets of clear aligners, to be worn for two weeks each. The client will be required to present for review every 12 weeks.

At the completion of teeth aligning, a clear set of retainers is issued and worn 20 hours a day for 3-6 months.

How often should I be wearing my Invisalign & Clear Aligners?

You should be wearing your aligners for at least 20 hours per day. They should only be removed to brush and floss your teeth and to eat and drink. However, as they are removable, some clients believe this means they can be taken out whenever the time presents itself. This is far from correct usage.

Things can always come up. Some clients might experience some situation or injury where wearing aligners can be painful. When this occurs, it's crucial to talk with us immediately, so a plan can be developed to take the setback into account. Hopefully, the revised plan will not set back your treatment timeline. The hard rule is, Invisalign & Clear Aligners have to be worn correctly to work.

'Teeth straighten with clear aligners, compare to other dental treatments, is a long procedure. Having a great work culture and giving the client the best possible experience during their journey is what I believe to be a critical element to a successful treatment outcome' Dr Matthew Pulvirenti.

What is the length of Invisalign & Clear Aligner treatment?

At Edward Street Dental, there are three levels of treatment on offer:

  • Up to 6 months (the equivalent of 13 aligners),
  • Up to 12 months (the equivalent of 26 aligners),
  • Over 12-36 months (where there are too many aligners to count).

The majority of clear aligners treatments performed at Edward Street Dental range from 4-18 months. Clear retainers are worn for 3-12 months following the successful completion of the clear aligner treatment.

Do Invisalign & Clear Aligners work as well as braces?

The majority of cosmetic dentistry teeth aligning cases will have the same outcome, in the same amount of time, with Invisalign & Clear Aligners, or traditional fixed braces.

There are some exceptions, severely crowded cases that may be more suitable to fixed braces, but this is balanced by other exceptional cases that are more suited to Invisalign & Clear Aligners.

Overall, Invisalign & Clear Aligners offer clients the opportunity to reap the rewards of traditional braces with considerable discretion. Invisalign & Clear Aligners utilise aligner trays that are manufactured from high-quality BPA-free plastic. These trays gradually and subtly shift the teeth. The plastic is comfortable and smooth, and the wearing process is a breeze. Additionally, instead of using a mould, Invisalign & Clear Aligners use digital scans of your teeth to configure the aligner trays with the perfect fit.

How much does Invisalign & Clear Aligner treatments cost?

In today’s dental market, the cost of Invisalign & Clear Aligner treatment mirrors the cost of traditional fixed white braces. This is certainly the case at Edward Street Dental. The costs will typically be based on the complexity of the individual client’s situation and the number of aligners, and months required. Edward Street Dental does offer flexible payments plans to help clients started sooner. Click here to go to our payment plan page.
