Invisalign (Invisible Aligners)
Sydney / Kellyville / Castle Hill
We all want a great smile, but a lot of us need help getting there. These days more and more people are having success with clear orthodontic devices called aligners. Invisible aligners (Invisalign) are a series of tight-fitting custom-made mouthpieces that slip over the teeth.

Can anyone get invisible teeth aligners?
Clear (or "invisible") aligners aren't for everyone. At Cosmetic Dental Point our qualified dentists will scan and assess your teeth to help you decide what’s best for you. Clear orthodontic aligners are typically used for patients who have mild or moderately crowded teeth, or have minor spacing issues. Patients who have severe crowding or spacing problems -- or severe underbites, overbites, or crossbites -- may need more complex treatment.
How do they work?
Once our dentist decides how to correct your bite, they'll make a plan for moving your teeth. If you get the clear aligners, you’ll be fitted for several versions that make slight adjustments to move your teeth over the treatment time. They’re made from a clear plastic or acrylic material and fit tightly over the teeth, but can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. You'll get a new aligner every few weeks to continue moving the teeth into the desired position.
How long does it take to straighten teeth using invisible aligners?
Treatment time with invisible teeth aligners is based on how much the teeth need to be moved or rotated. The more your bite is off or the more crooked your teeth, the longer it will take. Treatment usually takes between 10 and 24 months. But if you're an adult who had braces as a child, and your teeth shifted slightly over the years, you may need invisible teeth aligners for as little as 10 weeks.
Invisalign is the largest producer of clear aligners, but it’s not the only brand. At Cosmetic Dental point our dentists are Invisalign qualified practitioners while we are offering a 15 minute complementary consultation on Invisalign treatments to our patients.
