Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces. Clear aligners that are barely visible are worn instead of traditional orthodontic braces, to gradually, gently and safely move your teeth into a better alignment. Darlinghurst Dental offers a free consultation appointment to see if invisalign is right for you. If you have concerns about your teeth not being straight, Invisalign may be the right treatment for you.
Invisalign is based on 3D computer modelling of your teeth, bone and gums to use latest technologies in 3D printing and manufacture to ensure great treatment outcomes without the poor aesthetics of traditional metal braces. If you wish to proceed with treatment, a mould of your teeth as well as photos and x-rays are scanned and loaded on to computer for tooth movement modelling. A team of technicians and orthodontists at Align Technologies work out, in conjunction with your local dentist or orthodontist, what will be the optimum movements for your teeth, to give you the best final outcome for your face. Ideal treatment varies based on your symmetry, jaw shape, face shape, lip shape and eye position. It is not just your teeth which affect your smile.
After manufacture, your aligners are worn 22 hours a day, which needs to be a firm commitment. You really only need to take them out to eat and clean your teeth. After treatment, you will still need to wear retainers to prevent orthodontic relapse. Due to compliance, it is considered a treatment for adults only, when performed in general practice. Should you wish to see an orthodontist to discuss invisalign, for adults or teens, we can easily arrange that too.
Costs for Invisalign vary on a case by case basis, but generally cost $5,000 to $7,500. You will also need retainers at the end, which costs approx $600. You can book in for a no obligation, free consultation to get an exact quote based on your needs. Make sure to book with Dr Frank Farrelly, who provides invisalign. Not all our dentists do.
Straight teeth not only look great, they are easier to clean and maintain. Invisalign is minimally invasive treatment which improves your natural smile, that we believe is best for a long term stable outcome. At Darlinghurst Dental we want you to Take Pride in Your Smile.
