The Subtle Path to a Straighter Smile

iNVIS

Are you overwhelmed at the thought of having traditional metal braces? Misaligned and crooked teeth can now be corrected very discreetly with Clear Aligners! 

Clear aligners gradually move misaligned teeth just like braces do, except they're removable and more convenient. Clear dental aligners are also a less noticeable way to straighten teeth in comparison to traditional braces. For this reason, they've become an increasingly popular teeth straightening option.

How do they Work?

Invisalign uses an impression of your teeth to create a series of clear aligners, that gradually move your teeth overtime using  gentle pressure. Tooth coloured attachments can also be placed on precise locations on your teeth to help the aligner grip to the teeth and guide them. 

All you need to do is wear your aligners while going about your normal day-to-day life and watch as your crowded teeth transform into a straight smile

Is Invisalign right for me? 

If Invisalign is something you are considering book in a free consultation with Dr. Petronilla Grace. She will evaluate your smile and give you a rough estimate on how long she thinks it will take for you.

Precise pricing and length of treatment can't be determined until we send off your dental impressions to Invisalign. You have the option to pay a fee before locking in whether you'd like to go ahead, which allows you to see exactly the number of aligners you require, as well as the finished product of your new smile. 

The success of treatment is going to depend on how diligent you are in wearing your aligners. The aligners should be worn for 22 hours a day, and are to be changed according to the instructions given to you by the dentist.
