Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign treatment is simple and predictable to complete at Dental Boutique, regardless of where you are located in Australia or the world!

Step 1: Initial Video Consultation

Our cosmetic dentists meet with you to determine whether Invisalign is the right solution to achieve your dream smile through a video consultation. This is where we learn about you: your story, your smile aspirations, your fears and your needs. We also look at the way you smile, speak and bite, taking note of your unique facial structure and characteristics. All of this gives us the information we need to create a treatment plan that’s tailored to you.

After your video consultation, your dedicated Patient Consultant will be in touch. Through our Consultants, our hope is that we can help you streamline the organisation of your visits to Dental Boutique, book your appointments, and finalise a convenient payment option, allowing you to get started with your smile makeover right away.

Step 2: Visit 1: 3D Scans

After assessing suitability for Invisalign treatment, during your first visit with us, we complete comprehensive 3D scans of your teeth to commence designing your new smile and creating your unique set of aligners, getting you well on your way to achieving your new straight smile.

1- 2 Weeks Later
Step 3: Visit 2: Preview Your Smile (In Practice or Virtually)

You’re shown a preview of your predicted end result and smile design through Clincheck video technology, allowing you to make changes at every point of the process — all to ensure you’re completely happy with the end result. Dental Boutique can complete this appointment for you in person or virtually through video if more convenient for you depending on where you are travelling from.

4-6 Weeks Later
Step 4: Start Your Bespoke Aligners

Once your bespoke aligners are carefully fabricated by Invisalign, personally designed by our in-house dentists, you will be able to get started with your treatment. After we provide you with your initial set of aligners, we will review your treatment progress every 12-16 weeks (or as discussed with your dentist) for the duration of your treatment, and pass on your next set of aligners, to wear 22-24 hours each day.
For peace of mind for our interstate/international patients, we track virtually your treatment progress, to ensure you are keeping on track in between your visits with us.

Once you’ve applied your final aligner, your teeth are positioned correctly and you’re completely satisfied with the end result, you’ll be able to walk away with your new, straight smile.

All-On-4 Treatment

All-On-4 treatment – A miracle for those who thought they would never smile again, accessible to all across the globe.

Step 1: Video Consultation

The initial video consultation with a cosmetic dentist is where we take the time to understand your journey and your aspirations, and it’s how we ascertain whether All-On-4 is the right solution for you. We want to know about you: your story, your needs, your fears and what your perfect smile looks like. This helps us design a bespoke treatment plan with a range of payment options available (including early superannuation access) to get you well on your way to achieving the spectacular smile you deserve.

After your video consultation, your dedicated Patient Consultant will be in touch. Through our Consultants, our hope is that we can help you streamline the organisation of your visits to Dental Boutique, book your appointments, and finalise a convenient payment option, allowing you to get started with your smile makeover right away.

Step 2:
Visit 1: Day 1: Smile Design

After assessing suitability for All-On-4 treatment, during your first visit with us, we take a 3D bone scan of your teeth to use for your smile design and to complete your treatment planning.

Step 3:
Visit 1: Day 2: Preparation For Your New Smile

We complete the foundation for All-On-4 by preparing the bone and gums, placing your implants and removing all infections and diseases, under either local or general anesthesia to ensure maximum comfort and treatment success.

Step 4:
Visit 1: Day 3: Trial Your New Smile

We collaborate with you to design your new smile, taking into account your unique facial structure and ideal aesthetic. Part of this collaboration is a wax trial smile, so you can preview what your new smile will look and feel like. This trial smile process enables you to make changes to the shape, size and colour of your new set of teeth, so you can love every aspect of your new smile.

Step 5:
Visit 1: Day 4: Final Insert

Your newly designed All-On-4 smile is inserted. Once complete, we undergo a final check and review of your new smile. At this point, changes can still be made to ensure you’re absolutely satisfied. We don’t finish your treatment until you’re completely happy with the end result; after all, you’ll have this smile for the rest of your life.
