Our smile can be a great asset. Overcrowding or wide spaces in between teeth can sometimes take that away. Moreover, it causes difficulty when brushing which can lead to swollen, bleeding gums and even decay.
Fortunately, we can correct your teeth and bring out your mega-watt smile with your choice of metal or ceramic braces, as well as Invisalign®.
Virtually invisible, almost no one around you will know you are wearing Invisalign.
When it comes to eating or drinking, simply conveniently remove them for greater comfort.
Made of smooth flexible plastic using a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack®, Invisalign® Clear Aligners fits comfortably over your teeth to minimise any gum irritation.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® is removable to let you brush and floss your teeth for a thorough clean.
Invisalign aligners are able to treat cases from minor teeth straightening to moderate and severe cases of crooked teeth:
Gaps between the teeth
Upper and lower jaws are misaligned
Not enough room for the teeth
Vertical spacing between the front teeth
Protruding lower teeth
Protruding upper teeth

To find out whether you are a good candidate, schedule an appointment with our dental clinician for
an initial consultation. Once the assessment of your dental health is done, our clinician will work with
you to develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
Your treatment begins with either a scan of your teeth or a physical impression of your mouth. These will be used to create the personalised Invisalign trays that you will wear every day! Once the trays are ready, you can start the process of straightening your smile.
Compared to having to visit the clinic once a month for traditional braces, with Invisalign you will only need to check in once every 2-3 months. This helps our team make sure your treatment is on track to straighten your smile!
Because your Invisalign aligners need to be worn pretty much at all times besides while eating, you should contact your treatment provider as soon as possible to get a replacement tray if one is broken or lost. The good news is that since you will be wearing them almost all of the time, it is unlikely that you will misplace or break your aligners.
This is one of the most common questions, and the answer is a simple ‘yes’! Whether you choose to go with a traditional braces treatment or Invisalign, your end result will be pretty much the same.
