Invisalign: Get The Facts!
Straighten your smile with our discreet, lifestyle friendly and removable Invisalign treatment.
Are you thinking about straightening your teeth? But not sold on the idea of having metal brackets and wires attached to your teeth? Coast Dental in Christies Beach offers Invisalign as a virtually invisible alternative to braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners to slowly straighten your smile. This virtually invisible straightening solution will involve replacing each clear tray every 2 weeks. Generally, Coast Dental will provide you with 3 months’ worth of aligners so your visits are limited.
These clear aligners are popular amongst professionals, adults and teenagers who wish to discreetly straighten their smile.
Is Invisalign really invisible?
Invisalign aligners are made from a clear, medical-grade plastic. Using a detailed mould of your teeth, the aligner will fit firmly. This will allow the aligner to look almost transparent against your smile. You can go about your day-to-day life without visible metal braces. Instead, Invisalign aligners gradually move your teeth into the desired position almost invisibly.
Does Invisalign work?
Depending on your orthodontic needs, Invisalign is very effective. As long as you follow the instructions provided by your Dentist, they will straighten your teeth.
Although the aligners are lifestyle friendly and removable, this doesn’t reduce their effectiveness. Read more about the Invisalign treatment process here.

Will Invisalign broaden my smile?
Many patients have asked the question “can Invisalign make my smile broader?” during treatment. The answer is both yes and no, based on your individual requirements.
For patients who want to widen their smile slightly can benefit from Invisalign. For severe cases, orthopaedic treatments would be required to broaden the smile. These treatments may include traditional braces or arch expansion. A visit to Coast Dental will help determine the right treatment plan for your unique dental concerns.
