Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between Dentists and Orthodontists?
Orthodontists are experts in orthodontic work (the movement of teeth), and specialise only in this area. They have three to four years of additional university training which dentists don’t, providing them with a total of eight years of study. A general dentist spends four years studying. General dentists treat patients for fillings, cleaning, caps etc. This is general dentistry; they are not specialists in the area of orthodontics.
Our specialist doctors are the most experienced orthodontists in Australia and South East Asia and, as shown in your consult, have proven results. We are also a Blue Diamond Invisalign provider, a status given to us in recognition of our experience using the Invisalign method.Find out more
Invisalign V’s Braces
Invisalign can be used to successfully treat a wide range of orthodontic problems, including crooked, crowded or spaced teeth. In some instances, Invisalign can treat more complex cases such as overbites, under-bites and even cross-bites. The success of this treatment is usually dependent on the experience of the orthodontist, which means at the Straight Smile Centre, you’re in good hands.Find out more
What is the Cost of Orthodontic treatment?

So why is it important you choose a Blue Diamond Invisalign provider?
Invisalign recognises orthodontic clinics for their experience using the method’s virtually invisible aligners. This recognition is based on the number of cases that have been treated in the practice. To be a Blue Diamond Invisalign provider, we treat in excess of 750 patients with Invisalign every year.
