Invisalign

If you are thinking of straightening out your teeth but not looking forward to having fixed metal braces on your teeth, we can help you achieve that with Invisalign at Prestige Dental Care!

Invisalign — A custom-fitted aligner

Invisalign is a set of custom-fitted aligners that fit over your teeth that slowly pull all your teeth into alignment. With Invisalign, you will be given a set of custom-made aligner trays that are made of BPA-free thermoplastic material.

They are removable, flexible, smooth and almost invisible- this means that you can remove your aligners while eating, avoid the painful monthly tightening needed for metal braces, and the best yet: you no longer have to put up with having ulcers or metal wires poking into your sensitive mouth tissues, or getting food in your braces and subsequently bad odour from areas that are difficult to be cleaned.

How is it done?

At Prestige Dental Care, we will examine your teeth and take the necessary records needed before starting treatment, such as: photos of your teeth and facial profile and dental X-rays. Our clinic is also equipped with the 3-shape intra-oral scanner. Unlike traditional methods of taking moulds of teeth, we use this intra-oral scanner to take digital pictures of your teeth which gives our dentists a very high definition, 3D image of your smile and teeth. This can then be used to custom make your aligners very accurately.
