Invisibly Make Straighter Teeth a Reality For You
Invisalign can create your new straighter smile, using no brackets, no bands and no wires. Straightening your smile invisibly. Invisalign involves an innovative method of straightening teeth using a series of clear, almost invisible, removable aligners, providing a clear alternative to wires and brackets.
Is Invisalign Right for You?
- Are you embarrassed by overlapping teeth or gaps between teeth?
- Did you wear braces and now your teeth are getting crooked again?
- Do you want a straighter smile?
Invisalign can make straighter teeth a reality for you using no brackets, no bands and no wires.
Invisalign: The discreet cosmetic option for straighter and more beautiful teeth
The quest for straighter and beautiful teeth continues for many adults who may have missed out on orthodontic treatment in their adolescent years, when their newly erupted permanent teeth were considered more malleable for the teeth straightening procedure. However, thanks to modern innovations like Invisalign, many adults are now able to realise their lifelong dreams of correcting their misaligned teeth.
If you wish to straighten out your crooked or gappy smile, Invisalign is the procedure designed for you. Using special clear plastic braces to move your teeth to their desired position, Invisalign is a system that caters to both teen and adult patients alike. One of the reasons it has built a strong adult patient following has to do with its invisible brackets, known as aligners.
Not only do the aligners afford a more discreet mode of treatment – being virtually unnoticeable in a patient’s mouth – they provide an aesthetically pleasing appearance throughout the entire treatment process. It is the ideal option for adults who do not wish for their teeth straightening procedure to hinder their social or professional lifestyle. That also explains its increasingly popularity amongst celebrities and public figures.
What is Invisalign and what does treatment involve?
Invisalign is essentially a teeth-straightening system designed for patients with misaligned teeth, who prefer a more aesthetic and comfortable alternative to wearing traditional braces. The treatment is generally recommended for patients with overbites; underbites; crossbites; and unevenly spaced or crowded teeth.
Invisalign Procedures at Face Value Dental, Brisbane
- The Invisalign procedure involves the placing of customised aligners over the patient’s teeth. Each aligner is designed to exert precise and minute forces over the teeth in order to move them to their desired position in specified incremental stages. The series of clear plastic aligners is used in a sequence by replacing a new one every two weeks.
- The aligners are easy to remove and customised to fit. They do not interfere with you lifestyle and hygiene habits the way traditional braces do. While Invisalign has been widely acknowledged as an ideal option for mild to moderate alignment cases, it is also important to note that it may not be the best solution for every orthodontic problem.
Our Brisbane CBD dentists are more than qualified to survey and review your individual dental situation, to determine whether you make a suitable candidate for Invisalign. Click here to book your free orthodontic consultation today.
