If your teeth are crowded, unevenly spaced or crooked, clear aligners may be the best solution for you.
Invisalign® and ClearCorrect aligners are an invisible alternative to conventional braces. Invisalign® and ClearCorrect require each patient to wear a series of clear aligners. Treatment is monitored by Port Melbourne Dental and clear aligners are replaced about every 2 weeks.
These clear aligners will gradually guide your teeth into a straighter position, giving you the smile you’ve been dreaming about. Advantages include:
Clear aligners are one of the most popular choices for patients considering orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to maintain your natural appearance throughout the treatment process and get the straighter smile you’ve always dreamed of.
The smooth and comfortable design of clear aligners minimises potential irritation and soreness often associated with metal brackets and wires in traditional braces. The convenience of removable aligners also ensures you can continue to enjoy your favourite foods and maintain optimal oral hygiene practices with ease. Additionally, clear aligners often require fewer in-person appointments, making them an ideal choice if you have a busy lifestyle.
Here are some of the other advantages of clear aligners:
Invisalign is a modern teeth-straightening solution that uses a series of virtually invisible, removable aligners to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions. This innovative approach provides a convenient and comfortable way to achieve a beautifully aligned smile without the use of traditional braces. It’s effective for treating issues like crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, and more.
ClearCorrect is a teeth-straightening method similar to Invisalign, utilising clear, removable aligners to gradually enhance your smile’s alignment. Both of these systems offer a comfortable and quick solution to achieving a straighter smile.
The cost of getting clear aligners can vary depending on the type of aligner used, any prior treatments needed and the severity of your condition. It’s best to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced dental professionals to get a more accurate cost estimate.

Do I have to pay for everything up front?
No, we offer payment plans to help fit your budget.
How often should I wear aligners?
Wear aligners as directed by your doctor—usually two to three weeks per step, at least 22 hours per day. Take them out to eat and brush your teeth.
How long does treatment take?
This varies from patient to patient. Treatment can take anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on the complexity of the case.
How visible are clear aligners?
Clear aligners are completely transparent, which makes them much more discreet than metal braces. People usually don’t notice them. They’re not magic, however—you can see them at close range if you know what to look for.
Does ClearCorrect guarantee perfect results?
Most patients do experience noticeable improvements in their smiles, and your dentist will provide you with personalised guidance according to your unique situation. Keep in mind that individual results can vary.
How much do ClearCorrect aligners cost?
The cost to patients is generally comparable to or cheaper than other orthodontic options, ranging from around $4,500-$6,500 depending on the complexity of the treatment
Will I need to wear a retainer after treatment?
To prevent movement a retainer is required after clear aligner treatment.
