What is Invisalign, and how can it enhance my smile?

With Invisalign treatment, Red Hill Dental Practice patients can transform their smiles, improving the alignment of the teeth for a more beautiful appearance. Our team educates patients on this treatment and the process used to obtain an attractive smile without traditional orthodontia, such as metal bracket-and-wire braces.

What is Invisalign?

Our team in Red Hill, Victoria, describes Invisalign and other clear aligner services, such as SureSmile, as reliable ways to enhance the smile’s function, appearance, and overall health. They work by using clear plastic trays fabricated from a patient’s current smile. Digital images are taken of the teeth and used in our software to create an image of the patient’s smile now and their smile in the future. A series of trays are created, which the patient wears one at a time, each for two weeks before proceeding with the next. As patients progress through their treatment, their smiles will be transformed!

How does Invisalign help enhance my smile?

The primary goal of Invisalign is to straighten the teeth in the smile to address crooked, misaligned teeth that might be causing overcrowding or unwanted gaps. The dental arch on the top and bottom should be properly aligned to ensure proper bite alignment, eliminating unwanted wear and tear that can occur to the natural tooth enamel and even restorations such as crowns and veneers. Aligning your teeth properly within the arch can reduce the risk of cavities by making brushing and flossing those areas easier.
