Invisalign Dentistry

Invisalign is one of the most common orthodontic devices used to straighten teeth, especially for adults. Compared to other aligners, It provides many advantages and produces more effective results. If you are looking for Invisalign treatment in Port Melbourne or South Melbourne, our qualified and experienced dentist can help. 

Instead of using traditional methods like metal braces, Invisalign involves the use of retainers that are almost invisible and can be removed when you are eating or sleeping. They are an ideal orthodontic treatment for children, teenagers and adults and will provide stunning results without all the hassle of braces.

As a leading provider of Invisalign in Port Melbourne and South Melbourne, Bay Street Dental Group offers qualified teeth straightening services using the device.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Invisalign braces can correct a wide variety of orthodontic issues, such as crowding, crookedness, malocclusion, and the gap between teeth.
  • You can remove it and fix it back easily. It means that you can remove it while you drink, eat, brush, and place it back. This also ensures better oral health compared to traditional fixed-type braces.
  • Invisalign comes with clear braces that make it almost invisible or barely noticeable. Compared to traditional metal braces, the dental device has no metal parts and does not affect the aesthetics of your face.
  • Since metal braces come with protruding bits and wires, it can cause scratches and tears on your gums and mouth tissues. Compared to metal braces, Invisalign is comfortable and smooth without any sharp edges. Metal braces can also cause tooth decay, and it uses great force to straighten teeth. You won’t experience any of these issues while using Invisalign clear braces.
  • Invisalign offers quick results compared to metal braces. While some traditional braces need five years to produce desired results, the clear braces produce excellent results in a year.
  • Compared to other teeth straightening services, Invisalign is a proven treatment option with millions of satisfied people around the world. Your dentist can accurately scale the results and make effective changes while undergoing the Invisalign treatment.

Who Would Benefit from Invisalign?

Invisalign can benefit a wide range of people looking to straighten their teeth. Some of the people who may benefit from Invisalign include:

  • Adults and teenagers who want a more discreet option than conventional braces. Invisalign are virtually invisible aligners that you can wear them without feeling self-conscious.
  • People who have sensitive teeth or gums. The clear aligners are made of smooth, flexible material less likely to cause pain or discomfort than traditional braces.
  • People who have busy lifestyles. These clear aligners are removable, so you can remove them when you want to eat, drink, brush your teeth, and floss. Maintaining good oral hygiene during treatment becomes easy with Invisalign.
  • People who have mild to moderate orthodontic problems. It is a good option for people with mild to moderate orthodontic problems, including crowding, crookedness, and gaps between teeth.
  • People who are looking for a shorter treatment time than traditional braces. Sometimes, Invisalign can produce results in as little as one year.

However, it is important to note that only some are good candidates for Invisalign. Some factors that may affect your eligibility for Invisalign include the severity of your orthodontic problem, age, and oral health.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

You can start your Invisalign treatment by visiting and discussing your goals with our Invisalign-trained dentist of Bay Street Dental Group. The dentist will analyse your requirements and teeth condition and confirm with you whether Invisalign can provide the desired results.

We then take x-rays, images, and impressions of your teeth to prepare Invisalign models. Once we found that you can get desired results through Invisalign, we will start designing a treatment course for you that includes the teeth movements during the course.

We will design a number of clear aligners that you will have to wear one after the other; you have to wear each aligner for two weeks and change for the next fortnight. In every 1-2 months, we will evaluate the improvement of your teeth and ensure that everything is going as planned. We will regularly supply new Invisalign aligners, and most patients wear between 18 to 30 aligners during the treatment period.

Other than Invisalign, we also offer dental implantsemergency dentists, and cosmetic dentistry, in the areas of Toorak, South MelbourneSt. KildaAlbert part, South bank, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a cavity, contact the Dentist Port Melbourne team at (03) 9646 2577. Our dentist will examine your mouth and take X-rays to see the cavity and offer treatment. 


This means approaching every patient and case with personalised care. Every smile is different and Invisalign needs to be customised for your mouth and your requirements. 

Your Invisalign dentist will use the latest technologies to scan and create moulds of your mouth in order for your retainers to be made – and ensure they are a perfect fit. When you get Invisalign in Port Melbourne and South Melbourne at our clinic, you will get retainers that have been made just for you.

These retainers will also be created using state of the art techniques so when it comes time to change them over, they will move your teeth into the perfect position for your mouth.

At Bay Street Dental Group in Port Melbourne, we offer quality teeth straightening services while mending other orthodontic issues like gapped teeth, crookedness, overcrowding, and malocclusion. Our Invisalign dentists will examine your oral condition and get to know your dental goals and overall desired outcome. The Invisalign aligners are transparent and do not require brackets or metal wires to fix them onto your teeth.

There are several types of tooth fillings, including:

  • Composite Resin Fillings: These are commonly used for their natural appearance and ability to blend with the tooth’s colour. They are suitable for front and back teeth.
  • CEREC Porcelain Fillings: This technology allows for creating and placing porcelain fillings in a single visit. They offer durability and aesthetics.
  • Gold Fillings: These wear similarly to enamel because they are strong and durable. They are custom-made in a laboratory, require two appointments, and are more expensive.

Amalgam Fillings: These were once common but are now less favoured due to their appearance and concerns about mercury content. Amalgam fillings are strong but can cause tooth flexion, leading to cracks.

The process for placing a filling involves:

  • Numbing: The dentist uses local anaesthesia to numb the area.
  • Decay Removal: Decayed and unsound portions are removed, including existing fillings.
  • Filling Application: The chosen material is applied, shaped, and set to rebuild the tooth.
  • Duration: Typically takes 30 to 60 minutes per filling.

Post-Procedure: Anaesthesia wears off in hours; avoid hot foods/drinks to prevent scalding. Be cautious while eating. Transient sensitivity may occur but usually resolves. Contact your dentist if discomfort persists.

At Bay Street Dental Group, we provide several options, like Invisalign, dental veneers, and dental crowns to straighten your teeth. The cost of your overall treatment will depend on various factors – including the type of service you have opted for, its level of complexity, the equipment needed, and more.

Book an appointment today to discuss your dental issues. Our dentist will examine your mouth to determine which procedure will be best suited for your set of teeth and provide you with a detailed price estimation before beginning any form of treatment. 

To care for your fillings and maximise their lifespan:

  • Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice daily and flossing once daily.
  • Attend regular dental appointments for check-ups and cleanings.
  • Be mindful of staining substances like tea, coffee, and nicotine, as they can stain fillings, especially composite ones.

If your dentist recommends treatment for grinding or clenching, such as a night guard or splint, follow their instructions to prevent premature cracking or fracture of your fillings.

The lifespan of fillings varies depending on the material used and the quality of placement:


  • Porcelain or gold fillings can last at least ten years or more.
  • Composite fillings, while more affordable, typically need replacement every three to five years on average.
  • Larger composite fillings may develop leakage and decay around the margins over time, and they can lose colour and lustre.


  • The way porcelain and composite fillings are placed can affect their longevity.
  • Proper bonding between the tooth and the filling material is crucial for durability.
  • Using moisture barriers like a rubber dam during placement ensures optimal conditions and increases the filling’s lifespan.
