Your Invisalign® Dentist in Chatswood

Boutique Dental Care and Orthodontics

nvisalign® is the leader when it comes to clear, removable braces. Designed from translucent materials, these customised aligners move your teeth without the need for fixed brackets or wires. With Invisalign, Dr Meng Quah-Shepherd (Dentist) can help straighten your smile discreetly, whether you’re a working professional or a busy teen.

Is Invisalign Right for You?

Choosing Invisalign offers many advantages over traditional metal braces.

  • Discreet—The BPA-free aligners used are nearly invisible when you wear them. Most people won’t know that you’re in braces unless you stop to show them very closely.
  • Customised—Digitally mapped treatment planning makes it possible to create custom-tailored aligners that fit securely in place, carefully moving each tooth in a precise manner.
  • Removable—Enjoy the freedom of eating your favourite foods and brushing and flossing as usual; you won’t need any extra tools to keep your teeth clean.
  • Comfortable—There are no irritating metal appliances to accidentally rub the inside of your mouth.

Get Faster Results With Invisalign Lite

No time for traditional full smile treatment? Invisalign Lite offers area-specific teeth straightening for improved aesthetics in a much shorter time frame. In as few as 4-6 months, you can align the teeth at the front of your smile, as opposed to a comprehensive full-mouth treatment.

How Does Invisalign Work?

After taking a series of digital scans of your teeth, we send these virtual impressions to Invisalign labs, where your aligners are created.
These records will be used to devise a 3D treatment plan, referred to as the ClinCheck treatment plan. This plan will be used to craft the custom-made Invisalign aligners. The 3D treatment plan will also show your likely final tooth position at the conclusion of treatment.

Your Invisalign aligners will be sent to Dr Meng, who will then give you a series of aligners. You likely will receive 3 to 4 sets at a time. Approximately every two weeks, you will replace each one until the final position of your teeth is achieved.
You will need to wear each set for at least 20 hours per day for two weeks. When you change the set out every two weeks, your teeth are nudged closer to the desired position.

FAQ

How is Invisalign different from braces?

Braces are composed of metal brackets bonded to your teeth and connected by wires and small rubber bands, while Invisalign is created to be nearly invisible. Aligner trays made of smooth, comfortable, BPA-free clear plastic are worn over your teeth to gently move your teeth.

Is Invisalign appropriate for all ages?

Invisalign is ideal for teens to seniors. With these revolutionary clear aligners you can improve your smile’s appearance.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

Invisalign treatment times typically are not as long as the ones required for traditional metal braces. On average, it takes 12-18 months to complete.

When can I take my aligners out?

Your aligners are worn for 20 hours a day. You can remove them before eating, brushing and flossing or before attending a social event or job interview.

How do I keep my aligners clean?

You can brush your aligners with your toothbrush. To prevent your aligners from getting stained, we recommend that you brush your teeth after each meal before putting them back in.

Will I need to wear a retainer after treatment?

As is the case with braces, you need to wear a retainer after your Invisalign treatment. Doing so maintain the new position of teeth. Dr Meng will advise how long you need to wear them for.
