You’ll find them (but not see them) at Tea Tree Dental

Clear braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign and SureSmile, are a series of clear plastic removable aligners that apply pressure like braces do to adjust the position of your teeth. You might be considering straightening your teeth because of overcrowding, spacing issues, overbites, underbites, and even crossbites. However, choosing clear braces as a solution is straightforward when you consider the advantages.

The benefits of clear braces like Invisalign & SureSmile


Clear braces are custom-made for you and designed to fit snugly over your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, they don’t require wires or metal parts, so there are no sharp edges to irritate your mouth.

Nearly Invisible

As the name says, one of the most significant advantages of using clear braces to straighten teeth is its near-invisible appearance. The clear braces sit over your teeth, allowing you to undergo treatment without drawing unnecessary attention to your smile.

Removable and convenient

Clear braces are removable, which means that you can enjoy your favourite foods without restrictions. Simply remove the aligners before eating or drinking, then brush your teeth before putting them back in place.

Improved oral hygiene

With the ability to remove the clear braces, maintaining good oral hygiene during treatment is a breeze. You can easily brush and floss your teeth without having to navigate around tricky brackets and wires.

Fewer dental visits

Clear braces typically require fewer dental visits than traditional braces. However, keep in mind each scenario is different depending on the teeth being treated.

During your first visit, your Dentist will examine your teeth and discuss your treatment goals. We may also take X-rays, scans, and impressions of your teeth so that we can create a customised treatment plan.

Based on the treatment plan decided upon, a series of custom-made clear aligners will be created for you and supplied at a second appointment. Each set of clear aligners is designed to shift your teeth gradually and gently into their desired positions.

Depending on your treatment plan, you will wear each set of aligners for about 1 to 3 weeks. Even though you can remove the aligners, wearing them for as much of the day and night as possible is crucial to ensure the treatment progresses as planned. We’ll book periodic checkups to monitor your progress and provide new sets of aligners as needed.

It’s important to note that once your treatment is complete, you may need to wear retainers to maintain the results achieved.
