Invisalign is a brand of clear, removable aligners used to straighten teeth. The aligners are custom made for each individual patient and need to be worn for around 22 hours a day for maximum results. Time can be put aside for eating and cleaning of teeth and retainers. Treatment usually lasts between 9 to 18 months depending on your individual case. The advantages to using Invisalign is that they are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear and do not need to be frequently adjusted, with each patient swapping to a new set of aligners each week or as directed by our orthodontists.

One of the biggest misconceptions with Invisalign is that it can only be effective for minor dental problems. While it can be used to treat mild cases of teeth misalignment, it can also produce excellent results for those with severe crowding, overbite, underbite and crossbites. It can also be used to treat some cases of jaw disorders.

Invisalign can be just as effective as traditional braces for most patients. When we conduct a consultation with you about using Invisalign we will talk through all issues and concerns you may have and what the aligners will do for your teeth specifically.

Once you are fitted with the aligners, we ask you to send our Gold Coast dentists weekly progress photographs of your teeth between visits. This helps us to see that the aligners are doing the job we want them to, and it also ensures you wear the aligners for the set times each day to get the results you want.

Along with Invisalign we may use elastics or other methods of manipulation to get the outcomes faster and have your treatment completed in a shorter time.


Invisalign offers many advantages for those seeking a straighter smile. The aligners are nearly invisible, allowing for a discreet treatment process. They’re also removable, which means you can eat, drink, brush, and floss with ease. Invisalign aligners are custom-made and comfortable, requiring fewer visits to the dentist for adjustments. The treatment can correct a range of dental issues, from minor misalignments to more severe cases, without the discomfort and aesthetic concerns of traditional braces.

The cost of Invisalign treatment can vary depending on the complexity of your case and the duration of your treatment. At Sunshine Boulevard Dental, we provide a detailed consultation to assess your specific needs and give you an accurate cost estimate. Our practice offers various payment plans and options to make Invisalign accessible for everyone.

Your Invisalign journey begins with a consultation at our clinic, where we assess your dental needs and determine if Invisalign is right for you. We then take digital impressions of your teeth to create your custom aligners. You’ll wear each set of aligners for about one to two weeks before moving on to the next set, gradually shifting your teeth into the desired position. Regular check-ins with our team ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.

Invisalign is suitable for most people looking to improve their smile. Whether you have mild misalignment or more complex dental issues, Invisalign can be an effective solution. Our comprehensive consultation will help determine if Invisalign meets your orthodontic needs.

Many private health funds offer coverage for orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign. The level of coverage varies by provider and plan, so we recommend checking with your health directly. Our staff can provide the necessary documentation to assist with your claim.

The cost of Invisalign is often comparable to traditional braces, but it can vary based on individual treatment needs. Invisalign offers the added benefits of aesthetics, comfort, and convenience, which many find to be worth the investment. We can help you compare the costs during your consultation.

For most orthodontic concerns, Invisalign is as effective as traditional braces. Invisalign can treat various cases, from simple to complex, including crowding, spacing, and bite issues. Our expertise ensures you achieve the best possible outcome with Invisalign.

Invisalign treatment involves mild pressure to gradually move your teeth, which may cause temporary discomfort, especially when switching to a new set of aligners. This discomfort typically subsides within a few days and is generally less than that experienced with traditional braces.

For optimal results, you should wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. You can remove them for eating, drinking anything other than water, and for your oral hygiene routine.

Yes, it’s possible to whiten your teeth during Invisalign treatment. We can advise on the best methods for teeth whitening that won’t interfere with the effectiveness of your aligners.

Some people may notice a slight change in their speech when they first start wearing Invisalign aligners. This is typically temporary, and most adjust quickly to speaking normally with aligners.
