Making the decision to get your teeth corrected can be exciting – you’re finally going to get the smile you’ve always dreamed of – but it can also be daunting, especially if you’ve had problems with your teeth in the past.
We can suggest the best course of treatment for you, but if you don’t fancy traditional metal braces, Invisalign is a brilliant option. Here’s what you need to know.
They’re invisible – well, almost
Unlike braces, Invisalign are clear, flexible plastic aligners that gently move your teeth, bit by bit. They fit snugly over your teeth so they’re barely noticeable, and they’re tailored especially to your needs, so that the right amount of pressure is applied at the right time and place.
Your new smile within the same time as fixed braces
Yup – you really can transform your teeth in a matter of months. Sometimes, for more severe cases, treatment can take a bit longer, but many people see noticeable results after just a few weeks. The important thing is to wear your aligners as much as you can – it’s recommended that you keep them in for 20-22 hours per day, and only take them out for eating, drinking and brushing.
The cost varies
The cost of Invisalign is different for everyone – it depends on the course of correction you need, as well as the treatment duration. But, on average, Invisalign costs around £47 per month with us, and Invisalign Mild from as little as £38 per month. We offer a range of flexible payment plans to best suit your budget.

They’re easy to remove
Yes, you can take out your aligners for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing, and for those special occasions like weddings or job interviews – yay! In fact, you’ll change aligners every one to two weeks, with each set being slightly different to the last, so that your teeth are very gently and gradually moved into place.
They’re different to braces
Is Invisalign better than braces? That’s difficult to answer, because they’re different systems and it depends on your needs. Invisalign is extremely effective as long as the aligners are worn correctly, and can often give faster results than braces. They’re barely noticeable, and there are no restrictions on what you can eat, either.
But braces are highly efficient, too, and suitable for all ages. Talk to us and we can find out what’s best for you.
