INVISALIGN, What Is It?
Invisalign is a cosmetic dental treatment that uses a series of removable invisible braces or clear aligners to gradually straighten your teeth over a certain period of time.
Invisalign uses clear, medical-grade plastic aligners that are practically invisible, to systematically and efficiently straighten your teeth without any traditional metal brackets. It’s also completely removable, so that you can take your aligners out to eat, brush and floss as normal.
Because these appliances are clear and removable, the teeth straightening process is discreet and therefore very popular with adults.
The Benefits of Invisalign.
· The durable, transparent thermoplastic material of the Invisalign aligners is almost impossible to see.
· The Invisalign aligners are completely removable and as such, it is easy to maintain the daily oral hygiene routine needed to reduce the chance of plaque build-up, tooth decay and gum disease.
How much do they cost?
We use the well respected Invisalign system as we believe it’s simply the best product. The exact cost for Invisalign treatment will be determined by the complexity of the case and how long the patient is in treatment.

After being custom made and shipped to the Goldfields Family Dental, a series of aligners will be received by the patient to wear every day and change at home. On average, every 1-2 weeks.
The patient will visit the Goldfields Family Dental around every 6 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. After finishing the treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain the patient’s new smile.
Retainers are an incredibly important part of any teeth straightening treatment in order to keep your smile as beautiful and straight as possible for years to come. Without retention, teeth can move slowly back to their initial position. In order to keep your teeth as good as they can be, we provide Vivera retainers from Align.
Vivera retainers are designed with the same computer-aided state of the art design as Invisalign’s clear aligners, and because of this, they are discreet, comfortable, removable and convenient ways to keep your smile protected for years to come.
