Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.
Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor at Bordeaux dental clinic and Promenade dental clinic.
Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place.
How does it work?
From consultation to confident new smile, you’ll know what to expect every step of the way. Get started today by booking your free consultation at one of our clinics:
Bordeaux dental clinic.
Promenade dental clinic.
Choosing Invisalign treatment is an important dental and financial decision, so it’s essential that you meet with your doctor at our clinic. At your free consultation, our professional dentists will discuss your needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.
Next step is your custom treatment plan. In this step, we will scan your teeth with high precision 3D digital system such as iTero®. This step will allow you to see your teeth move and preview your smile.
Once you have your teeth scanned, your custom-made aligners will be made and you’ll be able to wear them 20 to 22 hrs a day for best results.
As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. At every stage, you’ll be able to see your progress and imagine how far your new smile will take you.
The free Invisalign consultation at our clinics will provide you with the right answer, suited to your needs. Whether at Brodeaux dental clinic or at Promenade dental clinic, this consultation is a must to confirm your need.

Proprietary SmartForce features and SmartTrack material make Invisalign treatment effective for complex cases. With innovations like these, your best smile is within reach.
Orthodontic problems that can be treated with Invisalign can be the following:
1. Gapped Teeth
Gaps between teeth can occur with abnormal continued growth of the jawbone. Missing teeth can also cause the surrounding teeth to shift due to the extra space, creating gaps in your teeth. Spacing issues and gaps between teeth can lead to gum problems (due to lack of protection by the teeth), periodontal pockets and increased risk of periodontal disease.
Overbite occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It's typically caused by genetics, bad oral habits, or overdevelopment of the bone that supports the teeth. This can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth, and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.
Underbite can occur when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth. It's usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. It can also be caused by missing upper teeth. This can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars, which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.
4. Open Bite
Open bite often occurs when some teeth are unable to make physical contact with the opposing teeth for a proper bite. Most often caused by a genetic abnormal jaw structure or excessive thumb-sucking, an open bite can cause poor or painful chewing, and even speech impairment. It can also lead to greater issues like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
5. Overly Crowded
Teeth crowding occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can get worse over time, and result in severely crooked teeth. This crowding can lead to plaque accumulation, tooth decay and an increased chance of gum disease.
Crossbite can occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and the sides of the mouth. This can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease and bone loss.
Your dentist experience is a key factor for the treatment success. While the aligners are unique to each patient, it is very important that your doctor check on the evolution of those aligners during the treatment and make the changes if needed. If the changes are not as expected, since the early stages, only your doctor can rectify the aligners to get the best and satisfactory result.
