What is Invisalign®?
A modern approach to straightening teeth.
No more metal brackets or pokey wires. Now, you can straighten your teeth without disrupting your daily life.
Invisalign® uses custom aligner trays to gradually shift your teeth into place. These clear aligners are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic. Most people won’t even notice you are wearing them.
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign® is removable. You can continue to eat, drink, brush, and floss as you normally would.
The best part: Invisalign® treatment time is typically shorter than traditional braces! Just think, if you start treatment now, you could be done by this time next year or even sooner!

How does the Invisalign® process work?
Here’s what you can expect with Invisalign® in Geelong, Melbourne.
One of our cosmetic dentists will sit down with you to discuss your smile goals and if you are a candidate for Invisalign® at the Geelong Dental Centre. Using a 3D digital scan, we will create a digital impression of your smile to customise your treatment plan and create your aligners.
Wear Your Aligners
You will need to wear your aligners for at least 20 hours a day. You should only take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. You will change to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks.
Because your aligners don’t need adjusting like braces, you will only have to visit our clinic roughly every six weeks. We offer early morning and after school appointment times to suit your needs.
Before you know it, you will be done with treatment, and you will leave our clinic with a beautiful, straight smile. For a finishing touch, you can professionally whiten your teeth!
