Invisalign uses clear aligner trays that are custom crafted to exert gentle pressure and move the teeth to new positions gradually. Every two weeks, as the teeth are shifted through each phase, a new set of aligners is required. Your smile gradually and invisibly moves through the stages of treatment until the desired results are achieved.
Our dentists at classic smiles were amongst the first group trained in the Invisalign technique in Australia.
We offer an exclusive service whereby upon contacting us we request that you send us photos of your smile. In response, we will email you images of smiles similar to yours that we have successfully treated – giving you the confidence that Classic Smiles has the experience to treat your condition.
Patient comfort and care have been our main priorities through the thousands of patients we have treated. You can be rest assured that your Invisalign treatment is being executed by highly trained and experienced professionals when you choose Classic Smiles.
