This innovative, removable aligner system has benefitted over 7 million patients worldwide and offers flexibility, comfort and a discreet design that keeps your smile looking great throughout treatment.
The Invisalign® system is a series of removable, custom-fitting aligners that are worn for 22 hours a day, leaving a 2-hour window in which to brush, floss and eat as normal. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and changed by you, the patient, in the comfort of your own home. Invisalign® is generally used to treat moderate and more serious misalignment, crowding and bite issues. The average treatment time with Invisalign® is between 12 – 18 months.
During a consultation appointment, we will examine your smile to assess your suitability for treatment, then take photographs and X-rays of your smile. We also feel it’s important to ask you about what you hope to achieve from treatment, so we can create the most bespoke treatment plan possible and adopt a holistic approach, taking your wider facial features into account. We believe orthodontic treatment goes beyond simply fixing your smile, affecting your whole facial aesthetic; many patients opt to have other treatments alongside Invisalign® as part of a smile makeover, to enhance the effects of what orthodontic intervention can achieve.
We will take impressions of your smile to send away to a specialised Invisalign® laboratory. Your aligners will be custom-made and sent back to us within a couple of weeks. We will invite you back for a fitting appointment, after which your journey to a beautiful smile can begin!
Flexibility for patients: as Invisalign® clear aligners are removable, you can continue eating the foods you love and brush and floss as normal. This is especially beneficial for those who follow specific diets and see fixed braces as a barrier to entry.
Keeps your teeth looking great throughout treatment: as the aligners are made from BPA-free transparent plastic, they’re a great choice if you’re looking for a discreet brace. We find patients in client and customer-facing careers and jobs particularly appreciate this.
Popular with celebrities too: many celebrity names including Billy Eilish, Kathy Bates and Tom Cruise have endorsed Invisalign®: Tom Cruise even wore his aligners on the Red Carpet!
See your smile before treatment even starts: you’ll be able to see what your smile looks like, before you even begin, as Invisalign®’s digitised treatment planning software can show you every movement your teeth will go through along the way. We’ve found many patients benefit from the motivation boost this gives them when they start their several months of wearing the aligners.
