What Are Invisible Aligners?
Your invisible aligner treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dental provider.
If you're ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, invisible aligners are your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other treatment works as comfortably as invisible aligners.
Inivisble aligners are the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life.
Check out the benefits below:
- EFFECTIVE - Even before your invisible aligner treatment is finished, you'll begin enjoying the benefits of a better and more beautiful smile. Teeth alignment will start right from the beginning
- COMFORTABLE - Invisible aligners are comfortable as there are no metal brackets or wires to irritate your gums or the inside of your mouth
- CLEAR - Invisible aligners are virtually invisable so hardly anyone will notice you are wearing them and straightening your teeth
- CUSTOMISED - Your dental practitioner will take impressions of your teeth from which your personal custom-made aligners are produced

What about veneers?
Veneers can be used in conjunction with invisible aligners to improve the shape or colour of your teeth. Should you have a chipped or irregular tooth, veneers can be used to finalise your treatment and smile after your teeth have been straightened with invisible aligners.
While veneers offer many advantages in combination with invisible aligners, veneers as a standalone option to address a cosmetic issue can have distinct disadvantages that should be considered very carefully before agreeing to treatment.
What are the benefits of Invisible Aligners?
Invisible aligners are practically invisible. No one may even notice that you're wearing these virtually invisible 'braces', making invisible aligners a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.
invisible aligners are removable. Unlike fixed metal braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and to maintain good oral hygiene.
invisible aligners are comfortable. Unlike traditional fixed braces, there are no metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth. This also means that in most cases less time is spent in your dental provider's practice for adjustments.
Finally, invisible aligners allow you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you even begin treatment, so you can see how your straight teeth are expected to look when your treatment is complete.
What are aligners made of and what do they look like?
The virtually invisible aligners are made of strong, medical grade thermoplastic material, uniquely developed for the invisible aligner treatment plan. The aligners are custom-made for you and fit snugly over your teeth.
