Teeth Straightening

Invisalign® FAQs | Types, How does it work & Dental Specials

Invisalign is a breakthrough technology that lets you have the smile you’ve always wanted, without the hassle of braces.

By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. An Invisalign treatment can take anywhere from 2 – 24 months.

The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, with each aligner progressively moving your teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing position, until you have a more beautiful smile. The total number of clear aligners is specific to your smile and determined by our dentists.

If you’re ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign may be your perfect answer. It is simply a great way to transform your smile without interfering at all in your day-to-day life or busy schedule.

Invisalign® FAQs | Types, How does it work & Dental Specials

What types of Invisalign Treatment are there?


There is now a range of Invisalign treatments that cater to different conditions and type of mouths. The type of aligner that may be advised to you will be dependent upon the complexity of your treatment

Invisalign i7

This type of aligner is used in cases where there are minor abnormalities for overcrowding or spacing issues. It can also be used for correction of minor relapse cases. This is particularly good for small aesthetic improvements or where partial treatment is required. You may need up to 7 aligners in total to complete the treatment. Treatment is often limited to the front 8 teeth.

Invisalign Lite

This type of aligner is restricted to a Class 1 case. This is where the bite is considered normal and the upper front teeth overlap the lower front teeth by a small amount. You may need up to 14 aligners in total to complete the treatment.

Invisalign Full

These aligners can be used for most dentition types. The number of aligners will be dependent upon your treatment plan and severity of your condition. Most design features can be used with this type of aligner and it has the greatest degree of flexibility in terms of treatments possible.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign treatment has multiple uses and is not just for adults. The number of aligners will be dependent upon the complexity of your treatment plan.

Summary of main features:

Invisalign Traditional Braces
Price similar similar
Comfort Very comfortable Some irritation
Visual Nearly Invisible More noticeable (although still tooth coloured)
Treatment Reliance Reliance on your consistency of wear Not reliant on your consistency of wear
Treatment Time Longer 3-24 months Shorter 3-9 months
Appointments More time between appointment Less time between appointment


Types of Teeth Preparation involves with Invisalign Treatment


In order to maximize the Invisalign treatment for an optimal outcome, we may need to prepare the teeth. The prepared teeth help the aligners to move the teeth as desired into the correct positions.

During your Treatment Planning, we will use special innovations in the software digital technology to plan any preliminary treatment that may be required beforehand. This not only outlines the preparation needed for the teeth but also we will be able to incorporate any specific enhancement features into the design of the aligners as well.

IPR – Inter Promixal Reduction

This preliminary preparation can consist of minimal preparation (maximum 0.5mm) between the teeth to create space for correct alignment and position of teeth. This allows the teeth to fit correctly together and appear straight.


This type of teeth preparation involves placing tiny attachments called Optimised Attachments on the outside of your teeth. These are special features unique to Invisalign.

The Optimized Attachments can have “active” surfaces and “inactive” surfaces used to facilitate a specific type of movement. The attachments are small miniature composite pieces that are bonded to the outside of certain teeth. They are tooth coloured and not visible. Once treatment is completed the attachments are removed.

Your dentist will discuss any preparation that needs to be done to your teeth before any treatment commences.

Tooth Movement during Invisalign Treatment

Special activators integrated into the treatment trays apply small forces to the teeth. They are applied gradually over a period of time allowing the teeth to move consecutively and in an orderly fashion.

You will be given numbered aligners that are to be worn sequentially. They move the teeth very slowly so you will be able to see the gradual movement over time as your teeth are correctly aligned.

The treatment components allow the dentist to have more control so that you will achieve an optimal end result. Most common teeth alignment and positional issues can be treated with Invisalign. There is a spectrum of possible treatment ranging from simple movements to more complex treatment plans. Your dentist will advise where you fall in this spectrum and help advise as to the best type of aligners for you.


Wearing of Invisalign Aligners

Do I Need to Wear my Aligners All the Time?

In order for the treatment to be effective and occur in a timely fashion, you do need to wear them in your mouth most of the time. We recommend at least for 20-22 hours. However, if you have a special event or perhaps you play a wind instrument, on the advice of your dentist you may be able to take it out for that specific occasion or time. If this has to happen your dentist will advise you how to manage and reactivate your treatment.

How long Do I have to wear the Aligners?

You will be given a sequence of aligners to wear. Usually, you will wear each aligner for approximately 2 weeks before changing to the next aligner in the sequence.

You will need a checkup once every 4-6 weeks to make sure everything is going according to plan.

Will I be able to eat my food with it?

Ideally, you should take out all aligners for eating and drinking – unless you are simply sipping cool water. For best results, you must wear your aligners for the required period. Eating with your aligners could damage them.



Invisalign Frequently Asked Questions

Will it work for me?

Not only is Invisalign versatile, helping to correct a broad range of dental and orthodontic issues, but it really works. There are over half a million smiles to back that up, however, a confident smile isn’t the only benefit of correcting your dental issues with custom made Invisalign aligners, your health can be positively impacted as well.

Invisalign can correct Overly crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, crossbite, overbite and underbites.

Will it fit my life?

With Invisalign, all you need to adjust to is your new, beautiful smile!

Reasons why my teeth are Crowded?

  • The jaw bone may be too small so cannot accommodate all the teeth
  • The teeth may be too big so do not fit the “normal” size jaw bone
  • There may be an imbalance between muscles of tongue, cheeks and lips

If you have crooked teeth because there doesn’t seem to be enough space in your mouth, then the dentist will have to create the necessary space. There are several ways to do this, however, the most common way is either to extract some teeth, redesign the arch form or to use a technique called IPR (Inter Proximal Reduction).

In most Invisalign cases we may re-design the arch form or use IPR. The technique of choice will ultimately be dependent on the results of your Orthodontic Examination and the complexity of your specific requirements.

Do I need to expand my arch with Invisalign?

One way of fixing crowded teeth is expanding the bone. But this can involve complex lengthy treatment. However, we can create the illusion of an expanded bone by flaring out the arch form of the teeth to accommodate the width of all the teeth and align them to appear straight.

However, this treatment is very case-specific and if correct teeth width versus arch length is not analyzed the teeth could look flared. Your dentist will be able to advise for your specific case during the assessment.

Should I sleep with my Invisalign Aligners in my mouth? I

Yes, you do need to keep them in overnight. However, they are quite stable and highly retentive. Also, many patients find that they are very comfortable.

If I need both upper and lower teeth, will I be able to talk with Invisalign aligners in my mouth?

You will be surprised how easily most people adapt to wearing the Invisalign aligners. You will be able to speak as you normally do with them inside your mouth. Most people even forget that they are wearing them.

Do the Aligners hurt?

The treatment is not painful. However, when you first wear the aligners you may feel a slight pressure on your teeth. But this is a good sign as it means that the active components are working to move and correct your teeth.

Will the aligners affect my speech?

Most patients do not have any speech issues. However, some may experience a temporary effect of a slight lisp for a few days. But there are usually no lasting effects.

Would Invisalign correct closing the spaces between my teeth?

Invisalign is an excellent option if you have spaces or gaps between your teeth.

They can be caused by:

  • Gaps because of lost teeth
  • Small spaces between teeth naturally
  • Spaces created by the movement of teeth

The Invisalign aligner simply moves your teeth together closing the gaps. Alternatively, the aligner can be used to create the ideal width of space to allow for an artificial tooth to be placed in the space. Often this technique is used when Implants or bridgework forms part of the treatment plan.

What if I feel I don’t have enough space in my mouth?

Many people may be dissatisfied with the cosmetics of their smile due to the crowding of teeth which consequently leads to crooked teeth. It may appear that there is not enough space in your mouth for all your teeth.

How do I choose between Traditional Braces and Invisalign? How will I know which one is right for me?

There are several factors that can help you decide which type of teeth straightening system is correct for you. A detailed assessment with your dentist will also highlight the best way forward for you.

What if I am not Compliant in wearing my aligners all the time?

Another factor to consider is compliance for wear. If you feel that you are not the type of person to wear the aligners as requested then it may be better that you opt for a bracket and wire system where the total control of the treatment is placed with your dentist. On the other hand, many people who have a time constraint find that the limited number of dental appointments with the aligner system may work better for them. So one choice that governs which system is appropriate for you is how well you will comply with the treatment.

Is it really Invisible?

Invisalign braces are less noticeable than any bracket and wire system (although many are tooth coloured). However, the treatment may take slightly longer to complete.

What do I need to know about Post-Invisalign Treatment Care?

Regardless of whether you have had any treatment, we recommend regular checkups to make sure your mouth is as healthy as it can be. However, it becomes even more imperative to maintain your routine examination appointments after you have had some dental work done. This allows the dentist to make sure that your treatment is in good condition, thus helping you to maintain a healthy mouth.

What are the retention options do I have?

After you have had your treatment completed you will need to be fitted with a retainer. These help to keep the newly aligned teeth secure in their new positions. The dentist will discuss various options with you.

They include:

  • Conventional Retainer
  • Positional Retainer
  • Vivera Retainer
  • Fixed Retainer

How about Oral Hygiene?

Due to the very nature of these aligners, you are still able to follow your home cleaning regime as advised by your dentist or hygienist throughout the treatment.

An advantage of straightening your teeth is that your teeth end up in a position that aids your ability to clean them properly. However, the technique you will now follow post-treatment to clean your teeth will need to be slightly adjusted. Often due to the placement of a fixed retainer, you will need to use appropriately sized interdental brushes eg. TePe brushes to clean between your teeth. Hence, regular flossing will not be as efficient on the teeth fixed by the retainer.

What if I need Dental work during the Invisalign Treatment?

After treatment most dentistry occurs in the usual manner. Your Invisalign or any orthodontic treatment will not prevent the dentist from carrying out most dental treatments as and when they are required. The hygienist is also skilled in gum treatments without being inhibited by your teeth or any fixed retainers placed on your teeth.

Going forward, after any treatment, your dentist will be able to advise your of your specific customized post-treatment care program.

Lenght of Treatment

Due to the very slow gradual movement of the teeth, Invisalign treatment may take slightly longer to complete. Treatment can range anything from 3- 24 months. Most bracket and wire systems are often completed within 3 – 9 months.

Number of appointments with Invisalign

Most short-term adult orthodontic bracket and wire treatments require 4-6 weekly appointments. These appointments are to make any necessary adjustments to allow the teeth to move gradually into the correct alignment. On the other hand Invisalign treatments often require fewer appointments since multiple aligning trays are given to the patient at one visit. You are then able to change the trays yourself. This change of trays applies the necessary forces to move the teeth gradually into the correct alignment. Hence, if you are unable to visit the dentist regularly then Invisalign would be a great treatment choice.

Is it Comfortable?

Invisalign aligners are very comfortable to wear since there are no brackets or wires irritating the gums, lips and mouth.

t will be able to advise as to the most appropriate choices for you.

Prevention of Relapse 

After your treatment has been completed your dentist will place a fixed retainer in your mouth on the inside surfaces of the front 4-6 teeth of the arch that has been treated.

On most patients, we also create a removable retainer that looks similar to the clear aligner but is made of a stronger material. This specific retainer is called Vivera and is constructed using a special technology that helps the retainer to be more rigid. Most traditional retainers are prone to relapse of treatment if they are not kept in the correct condition.

Vivera Retainers

This is a removable retainer designed by Invisalign that is usually worn at night to prevent any relapse of your treatment. It can be used after any type of teeth straightening treatment and is not restrictive to Invisalign and is used for most orthodontic cases. It is made from a specially patented material which is proven to be 30% stronger than most other leading clear retainer types.

Often Vivera is used as additional support for a fixed retainer such as a Bonded Lingual wire (wire bonded to front teeth on the inside). This forms a belt and braces approach to prevention of any relapse and ensuring the longevity of the treatment.

How long after the treatment do I have to keep wearing my retainers?

As an adult, you will need to wear your retainers inevitably. This is to prevent any relapse of treatment. The removable retainer is often worn at night only.

How to Instantly straighten Crooked teeth without Braces for Adults



A beautiful smile and straight teeth can make a huge difference in your appearance and self-confidence, but traditional orthodontic methods can be both time-consuming and uncomfortable. Moreover, not everyone suffers from the sort of bite problems that truly call for braces or similar treatments. In many instances, patients simply want their most visible teeth to appear to be in uniform alignment.


Few of us were born with a perfect Hollywood smile. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t attain your dream smile now. At Vogue Smiles Melbourne, we proudly offer beautiful porcelain veneers as part of our expansive menu of cosmetic dentistry services. Veneers are an ideal solution for patients who want to instantly and permanently correct teeth that are crooked, gapped, misshapen or discolored. Veneers require as little as two office visits in order to transform your unsightly teeth into an attractive, balanced smile that you are proud to show off. We are committed to delivering the highest standard of care when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. We believe that every patient deserves to have a confident smile, regardless of his or her specific aesthetic flaws.


In such cases, porcelain veneers may be able to help. Also known as instant orthodontics in these instances, veneers allow someone to obtain a brand new smile in just one or two visits. Rather than undergoing a lengthy orthodontic process, consider the benefits of permanently straightening your smile with porcelain veneers.


Many patients are not aware that there is an alternate to traditional orthodontic treatment. Our patients are often relieved to learn that we can improve the appearance of crooked teeth, correct misshapen teeth, or fill in gaps between teeth, almost instantly. For our patients in Melbourne, porcelain veneers are applied to eliminate the appearance of crooked or misshapen teeth in an average of just 2-3  dental appointments


How do Porcelain Veneer works in Instantly straightening Crooked teeth


Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are crafted to match the color, size, and shape of your teeth, but with slight improvements. They are permanently cemented over teeth, covering imperfections beneath while creating a new visage over the front. Because of porcelain’s near-identical appearance to natural enamel, veneers effectively create a brand new, beautiful smile without sacrificing the underlying teeth. Whether you use veneers to cover one tooth or multiple teeth, they are created to complement and improve your specific smile.


Because veneers cover teeth, they can be used to adjust the width and edge of each tooth. In this way, veneers can alter the apparent alignment of teeth, creating an overall image of uniformity and alignment. Similarly, they can be used to fill gaps between teeth or create a more evenly spaced smile. Once veneers are placed, the changes are durable and long-lasting.

The Benefits of “Instant” Orthodontics


When you use porcelain veneers to achieve a straighter smile, you gain several advantages over traditional orthodontic methods, including:

  • Quick results: Braces and similar procedures can take months, if not years, for the final result. Rather than gradually shifting teeth into place, veneers immediately produce a new smile altogether. In just two dental visits, we can take impressions of your teeth, prepare them for veneers, and ultimately place your veneers once they are ready. Both visits can typically be scheduled within a couple of weeks.


  • No metal braces: Orthodontic hardware can be a hassle throughout the treatment process.


  • Additional cosmetic benefits: Braces will only improve straightness, whereas porcelain veneers improve virtually every aesthetic quality. Stains, cracks, and undersized teeth can be conveniently hidden while teeth are also straightened, and the quality of porcelain ensures that future imperfections can be more easily avoided.

Candidates for Instant Orthodontics


While porcelain veneers are often an appealing option, patients must first be sure that they are well suited for the procedure. First and foremost, teeth and gums must be in relatively good condition – any instance of decay or disease must first be dealt with via restorative dentistry. To ensure the longevity of veneers, patients with bruxism (habitual teeth grinding) may also want to speak with their dentist about protecting their veneers from chips or cracks.


In regard to orthodontics, it should be noted that porcelain veneers are a purely cosmetic procedure. They will not fix severe alignment issues that create bite problems or threaten one’s oral health. In such cases, and in cases where teeth are impacted, traditional orthodontics are in fact needed to create proper space within the mouth. Nevertheless, for those who simply want to achieve straighter looking teeth for aesthetic purposes, instant orthodontics may very well be an excellent alternative.


Porcelain Veneers as an Orthodontic Treatment


Not all porcelain veneers are created equally. At Vogue Smiles Melbourne, we craft our veneers from the finest-grade dental porcelain available, customizing them so that they complement surrounding teeth perfectly in terms of size, shape, colour, and even texture. Your porcelain veneers will be durable, natural-looking, and strong. With proper care, they will remain bonded to the surfaces of your teeth for years, concealing such cosmetic flaws as chips, cracks, and discolouration.


Although they are known primarily as a cosmetic treatment, porcelain veneers can also serve a restorative purpose. By lengthening teeth that are disproportionately short and filling in small gaps that separate teeth, porcelain veneers not only improve the appearance of the smile, but also help to improve the orientation of the teeth and the strength of the bite. The teeth in the upper jaw will meet the teeth in the lower jaw properly after treatment, while the teeth that had been separated by gaps will no longer be inclined to shift out of their optimal positions toward the empty space. The teeth to which the veneers are attached will also be stronger, as the veneers will act as reinforcements.


Not all patients will be good candidates for instant orthodontics with porcelain veneers. More severe orthodontic issues will require more conventional treatment methods. However, some patients may be able to begin treatment with these more conventional methods and then complete their treatment with porcelain veneers, achieving the full cosmetic benefits that porcelain veneers have to offer.


Many patients choose to combine instant orthodontics with other cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening or dental crowns as part of a comprehensive smile makeover plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are veneers permanent?

Yes, they are. During the veneers process, we remove a layer of enamel to ensure that the veneers sit flush with your other teeth. Because of this step, the veneers process is irreversible. If you’re looking for permanent, transformative results, dental veneers are the way to go.

Are veneers stain-resistant?

Part of the benefits of dental veneers is that they are made from stain-resistant porcelain material. While proper dental hygiene such as brushing and flossing is still important, the porcelain shells are not as susceptible to certain foods, drinks, and medications as natural teeth are.

Cost of Porcelain Veneers

The cost of porcelain veneers will vary from patient to patient and depends on such factors as how many veneers you need and how complex your individual case is. Costs will also rise if you need additional treatments along with your veneers.


When you visit us for a smile consultation, we’ll give you an accurate cost breakdown based on how many veneers you’re getting and more.


We understand that porcelain veneers can be a large upfront cost, so we offer dental financing plans for patients who would prefer to spread out the cost. Ask us about which plans we take during your consultation, and our patient coordinator will be happy to assist you in finding the right financing plan for your needs.

Cosmetic Dentistry Dental Veneers Editor's Pick Teeth Straightening

Get Straight Teeth fast Without Braces with Dental Porcelain Veneers

Everyone wants a perfect smile, but with braces, sometimes it can take a long time.  Due to recent developments in technology, orthodontists are now able to shape and align teeth in a shorter amount of time. It can take years to straighten teeth with braces, but now you can get the smile you want instantly!

Would you like to transform your crooked, uneven smile to a beautiful, straight smile in only 3 dental visits, and without braces?

Of course, you would. And now you can, with the application of instant orthodontics with Porcelain Veneer.


“Instant” Orthodontics using Porcelain Dental Veneers


A procedure called instant orthodontics uses porcelain veneers and dental crowns to align misshapen or overlapping teeth for a perfectly natural-looking smile. So, what are veneers? Veneers are ceramic or porcelain shells that are cemented to the front portion of your teeth. They are matched to the color and shape of your original teeth so they look as natural as possible. By using veneers as instant orthodontics, dentists can also close gaps between teeth for a more beautiful smile.

Wearing braces can be painful and requires constant visits with an orthodontist over a period of months or years. However, instant orthodontics only requires a few appointments within one month. If you don’t like the look of your smile and you don’t want to wear noticeable braces, you might consider instant orthodontics.




Are you a candidate for “Instant” Orthodontics


So how do you know if instant orthodontics is right for you? First, you must visit with your dentist for an initial consultation. In order to be a good candidate for this procedure, you must have a healthy jaw and bite. If you have a bite issue or gingivitis, your dentist might recommend another treatment first. However, if you have clean, healthy gums and a normal bite, instant orthodontics could be right for you. Instant orthodontics can treat patients with the following conditions:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overcrowding or overlapping teeth
  • Discoloration


The Instant Orthodontics Process


Typically, instant orthodontic procedures take less than a month  from start to finish or from 2-4 appointments. After the initial consultation, your cosmetic dentist will set up an appointment to start the procedure. During the first part of the procedure, the dentist will buff down the teeth to make room for the porcelain veneers. They will then take a mold of the patient’s mouth and send it to a laboratory where customized veneers will be made. This could take a couple of weeks. In the meantime, the dentist will adhere temporary veneers to the buffed teeth.

After the permanent veneers are developed, they are fitted to the teeth. Veneers cannot be bleached or colored once they are bonded to the teeth. Once they are fitted, the veneers are bonded to the teeth with dental cement. The cement is hardened by the use of a light. Because veneers are small and must be placed with such delicacy, this process can take an hour or two.
