Increasingly popular with adults and teenagers, Invisalign offers a discreet, minimally invasive and highly effective way to change the appearance of your smile. It allows you to achieve your dream straighter smile in comfort, without any metal brackets or wires digging in and irritating your skin.

Invisalign is extremely easy to use, as custom-made aligners gradually move the positions of your teeth. All you need to do is wear each aligner for the recommended 20-22 hours each day and let the gradual and gentle forces get to work. Invisalign blends perfectly into your everyday life, and requires no changes to your diet or lifestyle as the aligners can be removed for eating, drinking and brushing your teeth.

Invisalign’s innovative clear aligners are virtually invisible in the mouth when worn, giving a confidence boost even during treatment. No-one needs to know you are on a journey to beautifully straight teeth until they notice you smiling much more once your treatment is complete!

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to gently move your teeth into new positions to transform your smile.

Invis Journey 1

Initial Consultation

At your initial appointment, we will examine your teeth and take 3D scans and images to ensure your aligners have a precise and accurate fit. We can even use the latest digital technology to show you a preview of how your future smile will look before treatment even starts!

Invis Journey 2

ClinCheck & Treatment Plan

The scans and images taken of your teeth are used to create your bespoke treatment plan. Using innovative ClinCheck software, we can show you step by step how each aligner will transform your smile.

Invis Journey 3

Gradual Straightening

You will need to wear each aligner in the series for 1-2 weeks before moving on to the next one. As you wear each aligner in the series, your teeth move little by little until your new dream smile is created. The aligners control the amount and timing of movement based on your bespoke treatment plan, ensuring that each stage of treatment goes smoothly. We keep a close eye on your progress at your 6-8 weekly appointments, making small adjustments if necessary to ensure an incredible outcome.

Invis Journey 4

Smile!

Once you have worn your last aligner, treatment is complete and you can get ready to show off your new straight smile! We will give you a final retainer to keep your teeth in their new positions for the long term.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q Will Invisalign affect my speech?
A You may find it takes a few days to get used to the aligners, and may have a slight lisp at first, but you should be talking clearly and confidently before long.

Q Are the aligners comfortable?
A Yes, Invisalign aligners have been designed with comfort in mind, enabling you to easily wear them for up to 22 hours a day. They fit snugly over the teeth and have no metal brackets or wires to irritate the skin.

Q How long do I need to wear the aligners for each day?
A You need to wear your aligners for around 22 hours a day in order for your treatment to be most effective. You can take them out for eating, drinking, brushing your teeth and playing contact sports.

Q What are Invisalign aligners made of?
A The Invisalign aligners are made from strong medical grade thermoplastic material, which has been uniquely developed for the Invisalign system.

Q What should I do if I lose an aligner?
A If you lose one of your aligners, please contact us as soon as possible for further advice. In the meantime, you can wear an aligner from your previous set to prevent your teeth from moving too far out of line. We may also advise that you move straight onto your next set of aligners, depending on your individual case.

Q How much does Invisalign cost?
A The cost of treatment depends on each individual case, with complex cases needing more aligners and therefore are more expensive. We are able to give you an exact treatment cost based on the examination and assessment we carry out during your initial consultation. We offer payment plans and finance options to help you spread the cost of treatment.

Q How long does Invisalign treatment take?
A Treatment length varies from case to case, but most Invisalign treatments are completed in 9-18 months. Straightforward cases have a faster treatment time, whilst patients needing more complex straightening can expect to wear their aligners for longer. We can advise you of your expected treatment time after your initial consultation.

Q Will I need to wear retainers after my treatment?
A Yes, you will need to wear retainers to keep your teeth in their new positions following your Invisalign treatment. Teeth have a habit of moving out of place, so you will need to wear retainers on a part time basis (usually overnight) for as long as you wish your teeth to stay straight. You will be given fixed or removable retainers.
