Get your best smile with Invisalign treatment- the clear and virtually invisible solution for straightening your teeth
WHAT ISSUES CAN INVISALIGN FIX?
Invisalign can treat a huge range of straightening requirements, ranging from very minor tooth movements to much more complex cases
Before you start your treatment with Invisalign®, your dentist at A Better Smile will design an accurate, customised 3D virtual treatment plan, using ClinCheck technology that digitally maps your Invisalign® journey.
This course of action will show the series of movements your teeth are projected to go through during the stages of your treatment, enabling you to see what your teeth are expected to look like when the process is completed, and how long your treatment could take.
WHAT TYPE OF INVISALIGN IS RIGHT FOR ME?
There are four types of Invisalign: Invisalign Comprehensive, Invisalign Lite, Invisalign Express, and Invisalign Moderate
Latest version of Invisalign® speeds up the treatment duration providing results in less than 4 months. This system is suitable for patients needing minor tooth corrections, slight overcrowding or relapsed misalignment from previous orthodontic treatments.
This procedure is suitable for patients with minor dental crowding and spacing. Invisalign® lite is ideal for patients who need to minimal discrepancies corrected to improve their smile, especially if they are considering cosmetic dentistry work.
Invisalign® Moderate for medium corrections. Usually up to 18 months & 26 aligners
The most commonly used Invisalign® treatment is usually suitable to treat most complex dental issues including: crowded teeth, gap teeth, and bite problems. It could take up to 36 months to fully complete this treatment.
*Invisalign results may vary from person to person*. Some patients may not be a candidate for Invisalign treatment
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risk. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately certified Invisalign provider.
Invisalign are virtually invisible aligners made of a thermoplastic material, uniquely developed to be used in a series of custom-fitted aligners that will straighten teeth. This discrete technology has been scientifically proven to be as effective as traditional braces while delivering comfort and flexibility to patients.
Customised - Invisalign aligners are engineered and custom made to fit over your natural teeth. These aligners use the right amount of force necessary to allow teeth to shift into an aesthetic position.
Removability - There is no need to implement changes in your lifestyle, given that Invisalign aligners can be removed and put back on whenever you feel like eating or having a drink. It is that easy!
Efficacy - Medically proven to be effective in orthodontic practices worldwide
Comfort - Avoid pain and irritation often caused by wires from traditional braces
INVISALIGN OVER TRADITIONAL BRACES
Orthodontic treatment no longer needs to be associated with the disadvantages caused by conventional braces. Although metal braces are an effective way to straighten teeth, these can be unattractive, painful, and uncomfortable. Thankfully, Invisalign® clear braces offer a great orthodontic alternative with many additional benefits.
HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK?
Invisalign® is a breakthrough technology that works on the same principles as metal braces without the need of intrusive and unattractive brackets and wires.
It begins by obtaining a digital scan of your teeth that will allow us to create a digital model with the use of a 3D computer imaging technology. Each aligner is designed and generated based on the digital treatment plan mapped out by your dentist. You will get a set of clear custom fitted aligners that will gradually shift your teeth until these have been fully realigned.

HOW MUCH DOES INVISALIGN COST?
At Better Smile, the cost of Invisalign treatment is much more affordable than traditional braces. Each treatment is custom fitted for each patient, therefore the price can change depending on the current and desired configuration of your teeth.
A series of 12 to 30 set of Invisalign aligners are typically required during a period of 3 to 7 months to complete the treatment. In some mild cases, an Invisalign i7 treatment can be completed in only 4 months.
Each aligner should be worn between 20-22 hours per day to maximise effectiveness. It will only be required to visit the dentist every 6 to 8 weeks throughout the treatment, rather than every 3-4 weeks with traditional metal braces.
If your goal is to speed up the process, we can do so by using a new appliance called AcceleDent that can minimise the treatment time by half!
