Invisalign Straightening

What is Invisalign?

  • Invisalign® is the clinically effective, nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth without metal braces.
  • You wear a series of clear, removable aligners which gradually move your teeth into the desired position.
  • The aligners can be removed for eating and flossing and brushing your teeth.

What does it cost?

We offer Invisalign® treatments for adults between £2500-£4500.

  • An initial consultation
  • All photographs, impressions and records
  • Aligners for entire treatment
  • Check-ups throughout your treatment
  • Vivera® retainers
  • Teeth whitening*

* For patients on our membership plans

How does it work?

  • Based on our diagnosis, a 3D simulation of your tooth movement and final result is made.
  • Once approved by your Doctor, a series of aligners are custom made in Align Technology’s laboratories using advanced 3D computer imaging technology.
  • You wear each aligner for two weeks before replacing it with the next aligner in the series until your teeth have been moved to the position prescribed.

Why should I select Invisalign?

  • Aligners are nearly invisible – straighten your teeth without hardly anyone noticing.
  • Aligners are comfortable – there are no wires or metal to cause irritation to your mouth or gums.
  • Aligners are removable – for eating, drinking, dental care or other activities.
  • Better oral hygiene during treatment – brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth.

Will it work for me?

  • Adults with fully erupted dentition or teenagers with fully / partially erupted permanent dentition can be treated with Invisalign®, even if you have crowns or bridges.
  • Many common issues, of varying complexity, can be successfully resolved with Invisalign®.

Is this treatment only for adults?

  • No, Invisalign® can be used to treat adults and teenagers alike.  There is now a wide range of Treatment options available to treat different types of conditions and patients.
  • Speak to us to see which treatment option suits you better.

How do I get started?

  • After your initial evaluation with us, we will discuss your goals for a new smile.
  • This information will then be used to plan your treatment, take impressions or intra-oral scans and photographs of your teeth and smile.
  • With advanced computer technology we can then show you a 3D simulation of how your final smile could look, before you even start your treatment.

How long does the treatment take?

  • It depends on the condition of your teeth and the severity of your treatment.
  • Most treatments take between 9 – 18 months to complete.

How long do I have to wear the aligners for each day?

  • The aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results.
  • Every 2 weeks you change to a new aligner and we recommend a check up once every 4 – 6 weeks.

Are the aligners really invisible?

  • The aligners are made from clear plastic, so they are nearly invisible.
  • Even when very close, most people will not notice you are straightening your teeth – unless you tell them!

Can I eat and drink whilst I am wearing the aligners?

  • No. The aligners are removable so you can still enjoy your favourite food and drinks.
  • Be committed to wearing your aligners at all times except for eating, drinking, cleaning and flossing.

Do the aligners hurt?

  • The smooth aligners are not harmful to the inside of your mouth, however it is normal to feel some pressure during the first days after you change to a new aligner.
  • This is a good sign, as it means the aligners are moving your teeth.

Will the aligners affect my speech?

Aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people, and you may have a
slight lisp for a day or two.

How long has this technology been available?

  • Align Technology, Inc., the company that manufactures Invisalign®, was founded in 1997.
  • Since then over 1.5 million patients have been or are in treatment with Invisalign®.
