You will be invited to attend a Smile Consultation with our Treatment Coordinator. During this appointment we will take photos of your smile, and use our iTero scanner to scan your teeth too, we can then show you a computer generated image of your teeth post-treatment!
Following this consultation, we use the iTero scan to send off for your Clincheck. This will create a bespoke plan for your treatment, and will tell us exactly how long treatment will be, and what your results will be at the end!
We’ll give you a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks (as directed by your Dentist). You can comfortably wear your aligners for 22 hours a day (the recommended daily wear). And because they’re removable, it’s easy to maintain your normal oral hygiene routine and enjoy your usual diet.
We’ll invite you back to the practice around every 4-6 weeks to monitor progress and hand over your new aligners. At the end of your treatment, you will need to wear your retainers to maintain your new smile.
A beautiful, smile is a powerful thing. It can change your outlook, help you overcome inhibitions and give you greater confidence – in both your professional life and when you are out socialising.
With Invisalign, you can achieve this smile without using traditional fixed braces. This Fact Sheet provides information about the Invisalign System, so you can discover if a clear, convenient and comfortable teeth straightening treatment is the right course of action for you.
If you've ever thought about improving your smile, Invisalign could be the clear way forward.

Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign transforms your smile without disrupting your life. Something that over 8 million people worldwide have already discovered

Are worn for approximately two weeks. Then you switch to a new set of aligners.
Are removable so you can eat whatever you want and maintain good oral hygiene.
By using advanced technology, Invisalign can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic issues that were previously treated with traditional braces – from minor tooth movements to more complex cases. These issues include:
Overly crowded teeth.
Widely spaced teeth.
We are an iTero Digital Practice!
With our Invisalign iTero Scanner we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it's faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.
It takes approximately between 9 and 18 months to create a new smile using Invisalign. Getting there takes just four simple steps:
Custom-made to fit your teeth and your lifestyle, Invisalign offers many benefits beyond your brand-new smile:
Nearly-invisible aligners mean hardly anyone will notice that you are straightening your teeth.
The removable aligners allow you to maintain your dental hygiene, brushing and flossing as usual.
You can also remove the aligners briefly to eat, drink or for special occasions.
Even before you start treatment you'll know how long your treatment may take and what your teeth are expected to look like at the end.
As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign is dependent on the complexity of your issue and your course of treatment. And, although only an Invisalign Provider is able to fully determine your cost, prices for Invisalign treatment. Find out prices here.
