Invisalign® at Superior Smiles

Invisalign™ is an innovate orthodontic approach that utilises a series of removable, virtually invisible, clear aligners to straighten teeth and restore your smile. This treatment is recommended by dental professionals in over 45 countries.

The Invisalign™ system can address simple or complex orthodontic issues such as:

  • Incorrect bite
  • ‘Gappy’ smile
  • Overlapping or overcrowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite

Our team at Superior Smiles will formulate a treatment plan for you based on your specific dental needs. With the Invisalign™ system, your dentist can show you the different stages of readjustment – from the initial stage to the eventual expected position.

Your oral impressions will be transformed into a series of aligners with the help of 3D imaging technology. Invisalign™ aligners exert controlled pressure in the required places to push and pull the teeth into the desired position. At your subsequent appointments, scheduled every few weeks, your dentist will monitor your progress and provide you with the next aligner in the series. The new set of aligners will be altered to accommodate the shift in the teeth’s position.

As the Invisalign™ aligners are custom made, they provide a comfortable fit and are gentle to the soft tissues. The aligners are fully removable, enabling you to brush and floss as you normally would, leading to better oral hygiene.

Clear aligners allow the Invisalign™ technique to provide a discreet straightening procedure. This feature makes it a popular choice for patients who prefer a natural appearance during their orthodontic treatment.
