At Dental Boutique, we are passionate about offering our patients a holistic approach to dental care. This means we offer a wide range of treatment options to ensure all of your dental needs are met right in one place. As a Platinum Elite Invisalign Provider, we are proud to offer our patients Invisalign, as a clear alternative to braces to straighten crowded or crooked teeth.

What is Invisalign?

Why put up with brackets and wires when you can have Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of virtually invisible clear aligners that move your teeth into your desired position just like braces.
This form of orthodontic appliance is great for patients who:

  • Do public speaking or have a frontline job
  • Don’t want people to know they’re having treatment
  • Would rather a more discreet treatment option
  • Want a flexible treatment that still achieves their goals
  • Want a faster treatment process

What Sets Invisalign Apart from the Rest?

What sets Invisalign apart from other orthodontic treatments is the ClinCheck software. When you visit Dental Boutique, we will scan your teeth and create a virtual treatment plan. This plan shows you the series of movements your teeth will undergo through the course of treatment.

Essentially, the ClinCheck software allows you to view what your teeth will look like at the end of your Invisalign treatment. The results from ClinCheck software are sent off to the Invisalign lab where your custom-made aligners are fabricated just for you.

Your dentist will give you four to eight weeks worth of aligners, which means less check-up appointments for you. Four week’s supply of Invisalign would be two sets of aligners. How many sets of aligners you receive will depend on your teeth and how much work you require. Typically Invisalign treatment will last between three to 18 months.

 

What is the Cost of Invisalign and What Does it Include?

Invisalign treatment starts from $49 a week, not including any health fund deductions or benefits over on a 2 year payment plan.

Includes:

  • Smile design and diagnostic workup
  • Orthodontic records and analysis
  • Preview of your new smile using ClinCheck software
  • New personalised aligners every 6-8 weeks
  • Teeth whitening (take home only)
  • One set of clear retainers (upgrade available to Vivera retainers at an additional fee)

Accelerated Invisalign Program is available at an additional fee.

 

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is individually designed to suit your needs. Receiving the Invisalign treatment is a four-step process. Your Dental Boutique dentist will walk you through each stage of the treatment and make sure you understand what to expect.

 

Your Simple 4 Steps Process:

Step 1: Initial Consultation

Dental Boutique is currently offering a FREE Invisalign assessment. When you visit our dental practice we will discuss the issues you are having with your teeth and general information regarding treatment options.

If, after assessment, it is determined that Invisalign is suitable for you, a treatment plan will be created. Your Dental Boutique dentist will take scans of your teeth and send those off to the Invisalign lab where your aligners will be fabricated.

A comprehensive examination will need to be scheduled to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy before proceeding with Invisalign.

Step 2: Treatment Plan

Once the impressions are taken they will be digitised so we can review a 3D image of your teeth using the ClinCheck software. This software will then be used to map your treatment and we will refer back to it through your treatment.

The advantage of this treatment is that it will allow you to see your predicted result before treatment, during and after—before you even start treatment. This is a great thing for patients as it allows you to see what your smile should look like once treatment is completed.

The outcome of the treatment plan differs quite a bit from clinician to clinician based on their experience and preference. It can vary in result and length of treatment. Invisalign is merely a tool to straighten your teeth, much like braces. It is the planning of the particular clinician that makes or breaks the treatment. Take a paint brush for example. A paint brush is a tool to paint a work of art, but it is the artist who uses the brush to its’ full potential that creates the art piece. Therefore, every artist who is instructed to paint (for example, an apple) will produce a different result, depending on their level of skill and training.

Step 3: Bespoke Aligners

Once you and your Dental Boutique dentist have agreed on the treatment plan, custom-made aligners are fabricated for you by the Invisalign lab. Each set of aligners typically need to be worn for two weeks and then you’ll switch to the next set. Our accelerated Invisalign program will reduce the time-worn for each aligner from two weeks down to three-five days while increasing the effectiveness of treatment.

While each patient’s teeth are different the typical course of treatment includes between seven and 36 sets of aligners. This takes approximately two to 18 months, however, it does depend on factors such as your individual case and your compliance.

Step 4: Treatment Process

In order to get the best results out of your Invisalign treatment you should wear your aligners day and night. The only time you should remove them is to eat, or brush and floss your teeth.

Review appointments are spaced every four to eight weeks in order to monitor your progress and provide you with your next set of aligners. Each set of aligners will move your teeth gradually and at the end of treatment, you’ll have a straighter healthier-looking smile.

We have recently implemented a program that allows patients to visit us once every three-four months and at the same time achieving the same, if not better efficiency in Invisalign. This means less visits to the dentist, saving travelling time and minimising time off work for you. Please speak to our team at Dental Boutique for more information.

 Why Invisalign at Dental Boutique is Right for You:

R

Outcome Based

    • We do not believe in charging a fee based on treatment time, but based on the outcome delivered.
    • The clinician at Dental Boutique are all trained in smile designs. Please look at our before and after gallery.
R

Customised Changing of Aligners

    • Aligners are changed according to your biological response, not a stock standard pre-determined change interval set by your clinician.
    • Standard aligner change interval (normally recommended anywhere from five -14 days) are not ideal as every patient responds differently to the treatment.
R

We Employ a Special Technology that Allows Us to Remotely Control Your Treatment

    • This technology will warn us of any changing conditions as they occur and gives us feedback if you are going well with treatment or not. This makes your Invisalign treatment faster and more efficient, resulting in fewer and meaningful appointments at the dentist.
    • This technology reacts near-real time to your treatment progress and adapting the change of aligner based on the fit of the current aligner. We can advise you via your phone to move to the next aligner precisely when it should be changed.

    • At Dental Boutique, we utilise a device that enables the treatment time to be reduced by 50%.
