What are invisible braces?
Invisible braces are fixed braces bonded on the inside surfaces of the teeth and therefore are not visible to other people when you speak and smile. The procedure of installing the invisible braces is painless and does not require any surgical operation. It takes 2 visits (about 3 to 5 days apart) to have the invisible braces bonded. During your first visit, an impression of your teeth will be taken to create a model of your teeth. A customised set-up of the invisible braces on your model teeth is then made in the laboratory and this is then incorporated to a transfer tray. During the second visit, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and then the transfer tray will be used to localize and bond the braces onto your teeth.
Therefore, with the recent advancement, better affordability and the fact that they are totally invisible, the invisible braces in Melbourne are now becoming very popular with adult patients.
