Invisalign® can help to treat a variety of orthodontic concerns including teeth which are crooked, crowded or with gaps – but because it is clear, removable and comfortable, it won’t interfere with your life.
Your treatment is nearly invisible, almost no-one can tell you are wearing Invisalign®. You can smile more during as well as after your treatment and because you can remove Invisalign® you can eat and drink what you like. Studies have shown that it can be better for your dental hygiene during treatment as well. With no metal or sharp edges, Invisalign® is comfortable to wear and does not cause allergies.
So far over 8 million patients worldwide have more reasons to smile – thanks to Invisalign®. Clear, removable, comfortable.
Your treatment with Invisalign®
Invisalign® treatment starts with a visit to your doctor, who will examine you and develop a computer model of your treatment.
Together with your doctor you can review and agree on your treatment before we make a series of aligners that will fit only you. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position. You wear each aligner for two weeks, before moving on to the next in the series.
Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average Invisalign® treatment is twelve to eighteen months. During treatment you should visit your doctor periodically, until it is determinded that your treatment is complete. Then all that remains is to show off your beautiful new smile!

‘Invisalign® CHANGED MY LIFE!’
Mandy is a nurse in her 30s and has hated her smile since she was a teenager. She really didn’t like the way her two front teeth stuck out in front of the others. She would put her hand in front of her face when she wanted to laugh and avoided smiling on pictures.
This was such a shame, because we knew Mandy had a lovely warm personality that deserved to be displayed in a lovely warm smile. We made a detailed assessment of Mandy’s teeth and used Invisalign®’s Clincheck software to show her the likely result before she committed herself to some extensive treatment.
Fifteen months later, Mandy can’t stop beaming at everyone she meets! She sent us a card that said ‘Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the smile I’ve always dreamed of. You’ve not only changed my smile but my life, too’. Invisalign® has allowed her to get the smile she’s always wanted.
A GREAT SMILE WITHOUT THE UGLY BETTY BRACES
Ali is an 18 year old student and hated her gappy smile. She had inherited teeth that were too small for her mouth. This is one thing she could probably blame on her parents!
One way of closing gaps is to add porcelain veneers that are wider than the natural teeth. This would pose two problems for Ali. Firstly, this would make her teeth look very fat and stubby – and not match her elegant features. Secondly, the porcelain will probably need replacing about every 10 years – giving Ali an expensive set of dental bills for the future. Closing the gaps with braces was the obvious solution.
However, at 18, Ali was not ready to socialise with a set of Ugly Betty metal braces. She was delighted to find that Invisalign® clear braces would give her the smile she wanted and still allow her to ‘eat, drink and be merry’. What’s more, it worked out considerably cheaper and healthier than a lifetime of veneers on her front teeth.
