Invisalign : Orthodontic Path to Straight Teeth
Invisalign is a dental treatment to help straighten the position of teeth, creating a more attractive and potentially healthier smile. Our dentists at Smile Craft Dental might suggest this treatment if your teeth are significantly out of alignment, are crooked or overlapping, or if you have unsightly gaps in between your teeth. Many orthodontic problems can be corrected with Invisalign.
Smile Craft Dental offer Invisalign treatments to patients in Sydney, Mount Colah, Hornsby, Willoughby, Chatswood, Artarmon, Northbridge, Newcastle, Forster, Wingham, Taree and surrounding areas.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic technology used to straighten teeth without traditional metal braces. A series of clear, almost invisible aligners are individually designed and manufactured to align your teeth over time. The removable aligners can be taken out for eating and drinking, and whenever you wish to brush and floss your teeth. During treatment, you will be provided with a series of aligners and each set is worn for two weeks, before being discarded for the next set in the series until your teeth are in the correct positions. All you have to do is to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day. It is a great system for busy adults who would prefer their orthodontic treatment to be discreet.
