Why Choose Smile Solutions for Invisalign treatment?
The large scale of the Smile Solutions practice allows us to afford the best technological tools available to our industry. Our intraoral scanners will quickly and cleanly scan your mouth to assist us in working out your treatment requirements. In this way we can preview your projected smile so you can visualise the end result before you start. The iTero scanner means no messy impressions and moulds, greater accuracy and fit of aligners and a faster turnaround time.
During your treatment you will also enjoy some of the best views of Melbourne from the peak of the lovingly restored orthodontic tower in the centrally located Manchester Unity Building. Finally, we offer extended hours and weekend appointments to suit your lifestyle, so you can come in for your Invisalign appointments at a time that suits you.
No two mouths are the same, so the cost of Invisalign will vary from person to person. As part of your complimentary consultation with one of our treatment coordinators, you will receive a comprehensive quote detailing the type of Invisalign you are suitable for and the total anticipated Invisalign fees over your course of treatment.
We understand affordability is an important consideration when you are looking to make a big change in your life. That is why we offer you a choice of Invisalign payment options, including interest-free payment plans. If you choose a payment plan, we can process your application at your appointment and your treatment coordinator will take you through all of the details.Learn More

Invisalign is an amazing revolution in orthodontics. This effective orthodontic treatment can help you achieve the smile you want and improve your bite, without the need for metal brackets and wires.
It is important to remember that the effectiveness of Invisalign relies on patient compliance. You need to wear your clear aligners for a minimum of 22 hours a day.

Benefits of Invisalign Treatment
Invisalign is a modern breakthrough in orthodontics with many advantages over conventional braces. Probably the number one reason Invisalign is a favourite alternative to braces is the fact that the aligners are clear and therefore very hard to see. A lot of people who want straighter teeth are put off by the appearance of conventional metal braces, making Invisalign much more appealing. As well as being nearly invisible, Invisalign is also a comfortable and less bulky orthodontic treatment, without the need for metal brackets and wires.
Another benefit of choosing Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. This makes it easier to look after your oral hygiene during treatment; you can still brush and floss as you normally would – just take the aligners out when you need to clean your teeth. The same is true for eating and drinking: because you can remove Invisalign, the treatment does not stop you eating particular foods.
Even those who have had other orthodontic treatment that they are not happy with, or those whose teeth have moved since other treatments, are eligible for Invisalign.

Specialist orthodontists have three to four years of additional education and training in the specific field of orthodontics, which qualifies them for registration with the Dental Board of Australia as a specialist. Seeing a specialist orthodontist means you receive specialist care by a highly trained expert.
The time taken to complete treatment depends on the complexity of your orthodontic needs, but the average is 12 to 18 months.
After a consultation with one of our specialist orthodontists, you will receive a full treatment outline. This will give you an approximate timeframe, including the time required for any general dental work in preparation for your Invisalign treatment.
Some people may experience minor discomfort at the beginning of each new stage of treatment, when a new aligner is inserted. Patients typically describe this as a feeling of pressure. Feeling discomfort during any orthodontic treatment is a good sign as it indicates that your teeth are moving into their new positions. The discomfort typically dissipates after a couple of days as the wearer becomes accustomed to the new aligners. Over-the-counter pain management can also help, if required.
