Invisible Orthodontics – The Invisible Alternative To Traditional Braces
Have you ever dreamed of straighter teeth and a healthier smile but wanted discretion during your treatment? At Platinum Dental, we offer patients a clear and incredibly comfortable way to wear braces! Invisible orthodontics uses a series of customised clear aligners to straighten teeth faster and with fewer office visits than traditional braces. Thousands of patients in Australia have effectively used clear aligner technology to correct their orthodontic needs.
Dr. Victoria Lane has a wealth of experience and has been creating beautiful smiles with clear aligner technology for many years in the Nelson Bay and the Newcastle area.
Why Consider Clear aligners?
Almost completely invisible
It is virtually impossible to tell when someone is wearing clear aligners. Friends and family may never find out unless you tell them.
They are incredibly comfortable to wear. They are made from a specialised smooth plastic with rounded edges so they won’t irritate the inside of your mouth.
Customised just for you
They will be tailored for your teeth. We use a digital 3D scanner and advanced modeling software to replicate your mouth and teeth. We then create customised aligners that perfectly fit your mouth and teeth. Throughout your treatment, the aligners will gently move your teeth into the correct final position.
One advantage of clear aligners is their ability to be removed for short periods of time. This allows you to eat, drink, floss, and brush your teeth as usual, with no change to your current lifestyle.
Clear aligners are a very effective method of orthodontics, and the movement of your teeth will be significant and immediately noticeable. Most clear aligner treatments take 6 – 12 months to complete, but this can vary depending upon the severity of the orthodontic issue.
More affordable than brand name alternatives
At Platinum Dental, we now offer our very own, more affordable, Platinum Dental brand, as well as Invisalign.
How do clear aligners work and what can they treat?
Clear Aligners are a simple but elegant solution for the correction of numerous orthodontic issues; including:
- Overcrowded and crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- An Overbite or Underbite
- Relapse of previous orthodontic work
How Do Our Clear Aligners Work?
With the help of state-of-the-art 3D design software, we utilise digital scans of your teeth to create a customised treatment plan for you using a series of clear aligners. Our high-quality 3D printer prints each individual aligner for you. There is almost no delay in starting your treatment; we can often have your aligners ready for you within 24-48 hours after your orthodontic consultation. A significant advantage of the Platinum Dental Clear Aligner product is that if you lose or break one of your aligners, we can print you a new one within hours and without delay.
Your treatment will include several sequential aligners, each aligner is worn for 10-14 days before being replaced by the subsequent one in the series. Your teeth will slowly move into their final position during the treatment. When treatment is complete, you will have a smile, you can’t wait to show off!
Are Platinum Dental clear aligners as safe as Invisalign?
Absolutely! Our aligners are completely safe since they are made from the same materials as that of Invisalign. This means they meet the same industry standards of safety to help achieve the best possible results. There is no compromise in quality to get the smile you deserve when using our own brand clear aligners. We also make sure that you’ll still receive the exact same standard of professional, personalised care we’re known for here at Platinum Dental! From your initial consultation all the way through to the end of your treatment, we will make sure we find the right option that works best for your needs. Our aligners made in-house also offer additional benefits for patients compared to Invisalign.
Benefits of Platinum Dental clear aligners:
Speed and efficiency
A significant advantage of our clear aligners is that there is no unnecessary delay to begin your treatment. Many brand names can have long turnaround times between your visit and actually receiving your treatment, this is because the work has to be outsourced to the parent company, which is often abroad. By creating our aligners in our own lab, we can start your treatment within a few days of having your teeth digitally scanned.
In-house clear aligners are much cheaper
The cost of clear aligner treatment can vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of the orthodontic issue at hand, but our in house aligners will almost always be cheaper than any name brand. You get the same great product but at a fraction of the cost.
Repairs and replacements can be done in our lab
Losing or breaking an aligner can be a stressful time for a patient. Many panic because they know it could be weeks until a replacement can be ordered and there is a risk of teeth relapsing during that time. This is never a worry for people using our Platinum Dental clear aligners. We can have a replacement aligner made and ready for you within 24 hours so you can resume your treatment with no fuss.

How long will clear aligner therapy take?
