Our expert dentists have been providing clear aligners and other professional orthodontic treatment for our patients in Werribee and surrounding areas for several years. Our clear aligners are the best alternative for patients who are uneasy about wearing traditional braces.
Clear aligners, as the name suggests, are transparent, removable aligners that are used to straighten your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile. Made using 3D computer imaging and custom-fitted to your exact smile, this is a highly effective method that can treat a range of orthodontic problems for adults and teenagers.
Aligners usually work best on teenagers and adults who have mild orthodontic problems. We recommend traditional braces for more complex cases but this can be determined upon your initial consultation.
Clear aligners are a treatment to straighten teeth. They can’t be used to treat oral health issues or to shape your teeth; these conditions will need to be resolved before starting your aligner treatment. If not overly severe, some conditions clear aligners can treat are:
While this varies from case to case, clear aligners usually take 12 to 18 months to show results. For smaller degrees of alignment, it may take even less than 12 months, but this is dependent on how often a day you manage to wear your aligners.
Depending on the length and severity of your treatments, clear aligners can cost anywhere between $3000 to $4000.
While maintenance is a lot easier, we recommend brushing your teeth after each meal to avoid any food particles getting trapped. Avoid hot drinks since your aligners are made out of plastic and can easily warp for the heat. If you can’t avoid that morning coffee, we recommend taking out your aligners and rinsing your mouth out with cold water after you finish.
Similar to other orthodontic treatments, you will need to wear a retainer once you have completed wearing your aligners. The retainer will prevent your teeth from returning to its original position. It will be made out of the same clear plastic, however.
