Gippsland’s leading Invisalign provider. The clear path to a beautiful smile.

What is Invisalign?

If you have an overbite, underbite, crossbite, gaps in your teeth, open bite, crowded teeth or crooked teeth, Invisalign aligners can help.

Invisalign are clear aligners that gently and effectively straighten your teeth over time. They’re a modern alternative to the traditional metal braces and the great news is they suit all ages, from sports-mad teens to dinner-date-loving adults. The secret? Invisalign straighteners are virtually invisible. That means no one will ever know you’re wearing them (don’t worry, we won’t spoil your secret).

Invisalign aligners are made from a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack which is FDA-approved, contains no BPA, BPS, Latex or Gluten. During your treatment we use a series of clear, custom-made, plastic aligners that will gradually move your teeth to the right position. No more tightening of wires, when your teeth are ready for their next tweak we just give you your next step of aligners. Easy!

As with all cosmetic treatment the results will vary from patient to patient, that’s why we’ll consult with you to create a tailored Invisalign plan that works for you and your smile. And when we’re created your plan, you get to see it! We’ll show you how your smile will change over the coming months so you can see the results before we start treatment. It’s like being excited for Christmas when you know what you’re getting.

As Gippsland’s leading Invisalign provider you can trust that our experienced team know how to get the best results for your smile. And don’t forget all the comfort options available to you at Warragul Dental Care. With Netflix, cosy blankets and noise-cancelling headphone you’ll wish your appointment was longer!

With not a brace, bracket or wire in sight you’ll be amazed at how far technology has come.

What teeth problems can Invisalign fix?

What are the benefits of using Invisalign?

Feel like you’re too mature to have metal braces?
Or maybe you have a public-facing job and don’t want to explain to everyone that you’re wearing braces every.single.day.
Or if you’re into contact sports you might not want to be held back by metal braces, whereas a removeable option would suit you down to the ground.

1. Virtually invisible

Invisalign clear plastic aligners sit snugly over your natural teeth line meaning no one will know you’re wearing braces unless you tell them.

2. Comfortable braces

It’s hard to believe braces can feel comfortable, but that’s how far the technology has come! Invisalign aligners are tailored to your teeth so they fit perfectly around your gumline to give you a comfortable-wearing experience. (And not a wire in sight).

3. Convenient, removable and date-friendly

We always advise you wear your Invisalign aligners for as long as possible but being able to remove them is a great benefit. It means you can clean around your teeth, floss, eat your corn on the cob, chew gum and pop them out for a little snog. (We got your back.)

4. Suit an active lifestyle

Enjoy contact sports like footy or soccer? Have a few weddings penciled into the calendar? Whatever your lifestyle, Invisalign will fit around you and your schedule.

5. Fewer Dentist visits

You don’t want to spend your time booking and attending dental visits, that’s why Invisalign have created a system that means you only need to see us every 6-8 weeks. If you need anything in between though, we’re always here.

6. Quick results

You can see results in as little as 6 weeks! And because Invisalign are clear aligners, that means everyone else will be able to see the results too.

Haylee’s Invisalign story

Something changed when I saw a photo of myself at my Valedictory dinner. I saw it and thought ‘Whooooo’, I have a tooth missing!’ There was a big shadow and it looked just like a gap.

I didn’t realise it was so bad and I knew straight away I wanted to get it fixed.

After that I started work at Warragul Dental Care and I began to understand more about my bite and gaps, and how easy it was to fix them with treatments such as Invisalign.

It turned out I had an open bite and lots of crowding, which was even affecting how I ate. I couldn’t bite through a ham sandwich properly!

I asked about treatment options and looked into Invisalign. The process was so easy. I had a scan, then Dr Anand showed me the ‘after’ preview of how my smile would look after treatment. Once I saw it, I was sold! I couldn’t wait to start.

I liked how easy it was to clean my teeth with Invisalign, I could just take them out and clean my teeth as normal. Another big plus was no one noticed I was getting treatment because the clear aligners are almost invisible.

My favourite part was how easy the process was and if I had an event I could just take the aligners out for a few hours, so no one knew I was wearing them.

My treatment took around 18 months from beginning to end.

People notice my smile all the time now! I get so many compliments, they say my smile is nice, bright and white. I’m not afraid to smile in photos anymore.

I only wish I’d done it sooner!

FAQ’s

How long do I have to wear the aligners for each day?

The best thing about Invisalign is that you can remove your aligners to indulge in a curry or pop them out for a dinner date, however you don’t want to keep them out for too long. We recommend wearing them for at least 20-22 hours every day to get the best results.

Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect how I speak?

As with all orthodontic treatments, your speech might be a little affected for a few days as you get used to the aligners. As you get used to wearing the aligners you should notice your speech is normal again within a week.

What food restrictions are there with Invisalign?

None! You get to indulge in whatever food and drinks you like at any time, that’s because you can remove the aligners to enjoy foods that might otherwise stain your aligners, make them sticky or affect the plastic. We’ll give you a full list of food and drinks to avoid while wearing them.

Do they come with a fancy carry case?

Why yes, they most certainly do. Who doesn’t love a new accessory?

Can I play sports wearing Invisalign?

If you want to, yes! You can also take them out if you fancy. Isn’t it great having options? The aligners are so comfy you might find you’re happy to play with them in. If you want to keep wearing them you can have custom-made mouth guards to fit over your aligners to protect your smile.

Are the Invisalign aligners painful?

You’ll probably experience some soreness when you get a new set of aligners as your teeth are being asked to move a little bit more. The good news is that this means they’re working! The soreness should gradually ease off over the following week. If you’re still feeling uncomfortable after a week then get in touch.

I’m already wearing traditional braces, can I swap to Invisalign?

It’s possible, yes! It’s best to book a consultation (t: 5623 5588) with us so we can check everything and give you a definitive ‘GO’ or ‘no-go’.

Will my Healthcare provider cover the cost of Invisalign?

It depends on the Health Fund but yes, some providers do cover the cost of braces. If you get in touch we can check with your provider for you.
