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’s virtually invisible braces blends perfectly into your everyday life and requires no changes to your diet or lifestyle as the teeth 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!

Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn and designed to fit seamlessly into your daily life. Only you need to know you are having orthodontic treatment!
The clear aligners are completely removable, allowing you to eat and drink whatever you choose. You can also brush your teeth as normal, easily maintaining your excellent oral hygiene.
The custom-made aligners are made with comfort in mind, with no metal or sharp wires to irritate your skin. Accurate and precise scans promise a secure, comfortable fit.
Invisalign is a gradual and gentle treatment, slowly moving the positions of your teeth. It can be used on a range of issues, including misalignment, gaps and overcrowding.
Invisalign uses the latest digital technology in every step, from the 3D scanning used to capture accurate images of your teeth to the SmartTrack material engineered to straighten teeth with maximum comfort.
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.
Invisalign® treatment starts with a visit to your dentist. We will carry out a free 15 minute consultation and discuss the orthodontic options with you as well as take photographs. We will then submit details of your case and the photographs to Invisalign who will respond by producing a free case evaluation highlighting your suitability for Invisalign as well as which Invisalign product is appropriate.
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 your teeth will move position as you wear your aligners.
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.
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.
How can Invisalign help?
Invisalign can help with a whole range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, misalignment, gaps, and incorrect bites. Straightening your teeth can also have a positive effect on your overall appearance, as bringing teeth into straighter positions enhances your facial shape and structure.
Straighter teeth and a winning smile give a huge boost to your self-esteem. Many patients find the confidence their new smile brings even starts during the treatment process, thanks to the virtually invisible clear aligners.Discover Invisalign

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Invisalign aligners are very comfortable to wear, with the thin design ensuring they are snug over your teeth and can’t irritate your mouth or become loose. You will easily be able to wear your aligners for the 22 hours per day needed to achieve incredible results.
In order to achieve the best results from your Invisalign treatment, you need to wear your aligners for 22 hours per day, to allow the gentle forces to get to work. Your aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing your teeth and for playing contact sports, but it is important to remember to put them back in your mouth as soon as possible.
If you lose or break one of your aligners, please contact us as soon as possible so we can advise you what to do. In the meantime, we suggest you wear an aligner from your previous set so your teeth are not able to move too far out of position. We may advise that you move directly onto your next set of aligners if this will suit your individual treatment plan.
Invisalign uses a system to categorise providers based on their experience and the number of successful cases they achieve. As a Gold provider, we complete many Invisalign cases per year and have a lot of experience in the treatment. Your smile is in safe hands.
The length of Invisalign treatment varies from case to case, but most are completed in 9-18 months. A straightforward case will have a faster treatment time, whilst patients whose teeth need more movements to reach their dream outcome can expect to wear their aligners for longer. Your dentist will let you know your estimated treatment time at your initial consultation appointment.
Yes, it is very important to wear retainers after your Invisalign treatment. Retainers work to keep your teeth in their new straighter positions, stopping them from moving out of place and undoing all the hard work of treatment. To maintain your new straight smile, we recommend you wear your retainers on a part time basis (usually overnight) for the long term.
