The treatment that won’t show anything
but your gorgeous smile…

Feeling ashamed of your teeth can be extremely corroding on your self-confidence. And for some people, the idea of orthodontic treatment can feel just as damaging.

While traditional braces have come a long way in the past 10 years they’re not without their challenges.

  • They’re still visible in your mouth
  • They still restrict the types of foods you can eat (don’t want to knock a piece loose..)
  • And they can still cause some discomfort to lips and cheeks, especially as your mouth adjusts to them

And they simply make many people feel self-conscious.

Invisalign doesn’t.

HOW INVISALIGN WORKS

Unlike traditional braces, which use wires and bands, cemented to teeth to slowly shift their position, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners, similar to teeth whitening trays.

Unlike your teeth whitening trays, your Invisalign aligners are customised using 3-D computer imaging technology, allowing us to show you the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position.

From there, your entire series of aligners are custom made for a perfect, low-profile fit, that is designed to be worn–but not seen.

Your friends, coworkers and even family will never even know you’re wearing them.

How are adjustments made?

Unlike traditional braces, where adjustments must be made at the practice, with Invisalign, you’ll replace your aligner every 2 weeks with the next one in the series, until the final position is achieved.

What about eating with Invisalign?

You simply take them out to eat or drink, brush your teeth when you’re done (to prevent staining*), and slip them back in.

How long do I need to wear them?

 Invisalign works best when worn for 22 hours a day–so any time you are not eating or drinking anything (except water–you can leave them in for that!).  Most patients have a total treatment time of 18 months.  At the completion of your Invisalign treatment, Bexley Dental includes a free take-home whitening kit, worth $199, to help you celebrate your new smile.

DOES INVISALIGN WORK AS WELL AS
TRADITIONAL BRACES

In many cases, Invisalign can be used in place of traditional braces for a more comfortable, discreet, and convenient treatment.

If Invisalign is recommended for you, then the results are in your hands. If you wear your aligner as directed, there is no reason
Invisalign cannot work as well as traditional braces. And usually faster too.
