Boctor Dental Smilecentre uses Invisalign to give patients a straighter smile, without having to wear braces. If you have concerns about the alignment of your teeth, but don’t want to get braces, Invisalign might be a great option for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic method that uses clear aligners (like retainers) to straighten teeth. They are invisible, more comfortable than braces, and are also removable. This allows you to eat and drink what you want, and brush your teeth and floss, without having to deal with brackets and wires. Invisalign has a different process to traditional braces, to find out more about traditional braces, click here. Following your initial consultation, you will get a scan of your mouth and teeth done at a Gold Coast local dental lab. The use of this state of the art scanning technology means that your Dentist at Boctor Dental Smilecentre can get an extremely accurate model of your mouth, without you having to undergo the discomfort of getting silicone mouth impressions. Your Dentist then sends your mouth scan, along with details on how they want your teeth to be moved to Invisalign in America. A customised series of Invisalign aligners are then sent to your Dentist.
How does Invisalign work?
Depending on your treatment plan, you may need to get “buttons” put onto your teeth to help guide the aligners and get the best results. These buttons are specific and precisely placed tooth coloured attachments (made of tooth coloured filling material, so they are still invisible) that fit perfectly into your aligners. Using the Invisalign process, you will need to wear a set of aligners for two weeks, before switching to the next set. The aligners are designed to gradually straighten out your teeth, and by the time you are done with the final aligner, your teeth should be straightened. Like with the traditional braces, retainers should be worn after the teeth have been straightened, to prevent them going back to their previous position.
Invisalign Payment Plans
Because Invisalign is a procedure that takes time (minimum 6 months), you’ll be able to pay the cost off, over the duration of your course! These Invisalign payment plans are completely in house and only require a deposit to cover the costs of case analysis and ordering your custom trays. The rest of the procedure cost can be paid off in monthly instalments, throughout the duration of your treatment. If you’ve been wanting a beautiful, straight smile but can’t (or don’t want to) go through wearing braces, you might be perfectly suited to a course of Invisalign. Gold Coast wide, Boctor Dental Smilecentre can offer you straight teeth, without braces:
