Everything you need to know about invisible braces

Getting that perfect smile will do wonders for your self-confidence, as well as prevent dental health complications down the road. Yet people often shy away from getting their perfect smile when it comes to straightening their teeth. This is because people think they will have to wear braces and no one wants bulky, unsightly pieces of metal attached to their teeth.

Invisible braces are the answer to this problem. Comfortable and virtually undetectable, braces like Invisalign are the key to unlocking your perfect smile. That’s why we’ve put together this guide on everything you need to know about invisible braces.

What are invisible braces?

Invisible braces can be used to solve a number of problems, including overcrowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, crossbites, overbites and underbites.

Invisible braces straighten your teeth through a series of removable aligners. Made from ultra-lightweight material, the aligners are custom-made for your teeth.

Replacing your aligners every two weeks will create an effective but gradual movement of your teeth without causing pain. With each new set, your teeth will move, little by little, into the perfect position.

At the end of your treatment (somewhere between 12 and 18 months), you will be the proud owner of the straight and even smile that you’ve always wanted.

What are the benefits?

Invisible braces are your key step to your perfect smile. In addition to the health and self-image benefits that come from straightened teeth, invisible braces have several advantages over traditional braces. Not only are invisible braces virtually undetectable, they also allow you to live your life as normal.

Completely removable, you can comfortably eat and drink whatever you want with invisible braces. Unlike traditional braces, you can easily brush your teeth, giving you healthier gums and lowering chances of plaque build-up or developing gum disease.

Invisible gums also don’t cause any painful inflammation of the gums or irritation of the soft tissue like traditional braces, and require less maintenance for their upkeep.

What is the treatment process?

A consultation appointment is the first step towards invisible braces. During the consultation, the dentist will examine your teeth and discuss your perfect treatment plan.

After your consultation, impressions and photographs will be taken of your teeth. Our lab uses these photos to make your custom, ultra-lightweight aligners.

Before the treatment begins, your dentist will show you a computer model of your perfect smile. ClinCheck® will provide you with a 3D virtual plan of your teeth, so you can see how your teeth are expected to look at the end of your treatment before it even begins.

After being given your aligners, you will have quick check-ups every six to eight weeks to make sure everything is going as smoothly as possible.


Invisible braces are the comfortable, virtually undetectable way to achieve your perfect smile. Completely removable, the aligners make it easy to eat, drink, brush your teeth and live your life as normal.
