Invisalign is an extremely high-tech system that straightens teeth fast using clear, made-to-measure retainers that sit over the top of your teeth. They’re barely visible when worn, and removable for when you want to eat, clean them or attend a particularly special occasion. Plus they work fast – think weeks not years – so you can look forward to a straight smile and renewed confidence in no time at all!

Who is suitable for Invisalign?

Invisalign is a cosmetic treatment designed for the front ‘smiling’ teeth – so if there are deeper problems concerning bite and function, your dentist may recommend an alternative treatment.

What does the Invisalign treatment involve?

If your dentist agrees that you’re suitable for Invisalign, you’ll begin with a consultation during which you’ll be able to see a 3D time-lapse image of your teeth before, during and after treatment. You’ll need to sit for dental impressions, which will be sent to a lab so that your bespoke Invisalign retainers can be fabricated. Then you simply wear the retainers for the prescribed amount of time, returning to change them every few weeks until your treatment is complete.

How quickly can I expect results?

This is dependent on your individual case, but typical treatment times are around nine months. You’ll need to have a permanent retainer fitted behind your teeth after treatment to maintain the results.
