The Invisalign Treatment Process
Ready to get the smile of your dreams? It’s actually easier than you might think. Read our 4 key steps below:
Come to Our Clinic for an Initial Exam
Come into the clinic for an initial exam. We will discuss your options and ensure Invisalign is a good fit for you.
Get a 3D Scan and Photo of Your Teeth
After your initial exam, a 3D scan and photos will be taken of your teeth. The information will be sent to Invisalign’s ClinCheck.
Receive Results and Confirm Treatment
After a processing time of 2-4 weeks, we’ll have your results and send them to you, along with a 3D mockup of your dream smile! These results will enable us to make any final changes, as well as help you understand the length and investment of the proposed treatment and payment plan fees. Our range of payment options, including interest-free plans, ensures that all our patients can access Invisalign treatments.
Receive First Set and Consultation
Once confirmed, your first set of aligners will usually arrive within 2-3 weeks. We will do a quick consultation to ensure they fit securely, as well as show you how to wear and care for them. You will receive trays for approximately 6 weeks’ worth of treatment, which is a convenient time to schedule a dental exam and to pick up your next set of trays. From then on, future check-ups will ensure that the movement of your teeth matches the ClinCheck models, so we know the treatment is working as planned. If not, adjustments can be quickly made.

Benefits of Invisalign Treatment
Am I a candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is a viable option for teeth straightening in Melbourne with a more cost-effective (and less invasive!) orthodontic treatment than traditional braces. There are a number of dental concerns that can be fixed with Invisalign – such as:
Invisalign treatment is appropriate for many different dental misalignment issues. An initial dental examination is the best way to start Invisalign. This exam and consultation will allow one of our dental professionals to see if it is the best option for you – and your smile. Your Elevate Dental dentist will also have a chance to see if there are any other problems that should be corrected before receiving your Invisalign aligners, such as gum disease or tooth decay.
Not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign Melbourne treatment. Sometimes with crooked or misaligned teeth, a tooth may need to be removed or perhaps a gap is too large. No matter what the situation, an experienced dentist will be able to determine if braces are necessary, or if a small fix is needed. In many cases, once a problem is fixed, the patient can move ahead with Invisalign.

Frequently Asked Questions
Our trusted cosmetic dentists are here to help you with your individual needs. Explore our FAQs below or contact us if you have a specific question.
When we receive your first set of Invisalign aligners, we will do a quick consultation and ensure they fit securely. During this time, we will show you how to pop them in and out and how to care for them. Patients often receive trays for approximately 6 weeks’ worth of treatment, which is a convenient time to schedule a dental exam and to pick up your next set of trays. The exam will ensure that the movement of your teeth matches the ClinCheck models, so we know the treatment is working as planned. If not, adjustments can be quickly made.
The treatment and care for your Invisalign trays are as easy as your daily dental practice. We will go over the details with you when you receive your first set of trays, but in general, this is what you can expect:
- Wear your invisalign aligner for 20-22 hours every day for the best results
- Rinse your invisalign under running water every time you remove them
- Gently and thoroughly brush your teeth according to your dentists’ instructions
- Rinse your mouth with recommended mouthwash
- Clean your invisalign as instructed by your dental professional – this is imperative to help them stay clear of scratches and remain plaque-free
Most Invisalign treatments take between 5 and 9 months.
The rate at which Invisalign can shift teeth is (pleasantly!) surprising to many patients. Fast teeth alignment with Invisalign is due to extremely accurate predictions of 3D scanning and printing as well as the high-quality tray, which ensure that efficient tooth movements occur.
Time will ultimately come down to several things, including:
→ How far do the teeth need to move?
→ How consistent are you with wearing your Invisalign aligners for the recommended 22 hours a day
The initial assessment will determine how many aligners and time you will need to achieve your desired results. Once complete, patients are given retainers to wear to help the teeth “learn” to stay in place. For effective teeth straightening treatment, your clear aligner retainers may be worn between 12 to 22 hours for anywhere from three to six months. Our experienced team is very familiar with Invisalign and will guide you throughout the entire length of the treatment and beyond, ensuring that your teeth stay straight and your smile remains beautiful.
The main difference between Invisalign treatment and other teeth straightening treatments that you can order online is that Invisalign is dentist approved and supervised. Other clear aligners are often manufactured overseas, less durable, and may break easily as they are made from plastic. Invisalign is carefully designed and created to match your exact requirements – whereas other clear aligners are not prescribed by a dentist and may be painful, damaging, and may not provide the best outcome.
Achieving the smile you’ve always wanted is more affordable than you may think. We provide transparent Invisalign treatment pricing and flexible payment options to give you the confidence that Elevate Dental is the right choice for your dental needs.
Invisalign isn’t a one size fits all option – we work with you to achieve the smile you want within the budget and timeframe that you’re after. What we’re good at is providing specialist dental care and flexible solutions for you to achieve your dream smile.

There are distinct differences between Invisalign and traditional braces in terms of what oral issues they address, and it depends on what your needs are.
In general, Invisalign is better suited for adults that want a non-invasive, more comfortable teeth straightening solution. Conventional braces, while more uncomfortable, are used to correct severe crookedness in the teeth, an issue commonly found in kids or teens.

Absolutely not! Because the Invisalign clear aligners are completely removable, you’ll be able to take them off before meals (or snacks!). You’ll be able to continue enjoying all of your favourite foods without worrying about damaging the aligners or having to chew weirdly.
Keep in mind that you’ll have to pop those aligners back in once you’re done eating — it’s essential that you wear them for the recommended 22 hours each day for the best results. Practising good oral hygiene, like brushing and flossing your teeth before placing them back on, will help keep your treatment on track.
You won’t need to feel pain to gain straighter teeth with Invisalign. The virtually invisible aligners are much more comfortable to wear than conventional metal braces — just ask any of our satisfied customers!
That said, you may feel some initial discomfort or tightness in your teeth when putting aligners for the first time. This sensation is normal and is the result of your teeth being gradually shifted to new positions. As you continue to wear them, this feeling will subside as your teeth become more congruent to the aligners.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to pay for Invisalign with Medicare. As with most orthodontic treatments, you’ll need to either have private insurance that can cover the Invisalign costs or pay for it with your own funds.
If the cost of treatment is a barrier for you, worry not. At Elevate Dental, we offer convenient and flexible payment plans, such as interest-free plans to help make Invisalign more affordable for you.
