Clear braces, by Invisalign, are an alternative to traditional braces that gently straighten teeth and correct alignment issues. They are a clear set of plastic alignment trays that are more subtle in appearance and safer to use than traditional metal braces. 

These clear alignment trays are designed especially for you and your specific dental needs. They are to be worn throughout the day, except while eating or brushing your teeth. Each alignment tray is worn for roughly two weeks before moving on to the next tray. The benefits of Invisalign include no food restrictions, normal oral hygiene methods, fewer office visits and shorter treatment time.

Clear braces are best suited for adults and teenagers and can be used to treat a variety of straightening issues such as overcrowding, wide spacing between teeth, crossbite, overbite and underbite. Correcting these issues with Invisalign can reduce the chances of gum disease and abnormal strain on teeth.

Dr JJ Serfontein invites you to schedule a consultation to discuss your teeth straightening needs.

The Invisalign process can be summarised as follows:

First, impressions will be taken to ensure that Invisalign braces are the best option for you. Next, a detailed treatment plan is developed to give you an idea of the final result. The custom aligners are then designed and your progress will be monitored, ensuring that you are comfortable and progressing well.

If Invisalign sounds like an exciting possibility for you, we encourage you to book your consultation right away. Clear braces can improve your appearance and, as a result, improve your confidence. This is our passion. 

The sooner you get in touch, the sooner you can be on your way to achieving a healthier and more beautiful smile.
