Teeth Straightening with Clear Aligners

Invisalign Aligner

What are clear aligners?

Clear aligners are a novel and nearly invisible way to move your teeth. Traditionally, this has been achieved with “train track” metal braces. Clear aligners allow for a more subtle option that is nearly invisible. They work by wearing clear plastic trays (aligners) over your teeth. You will be provided with a series of aligners, moving through them in order. Each aligner differs slightly from the last to apply gentle pressure to your teeth, carefully moving them towards their ideal position.

Are clear aligners the same as Invisalign?

Yes. Invisalign is one brand of clear aligners. We work with Invisalign and other aligner providers to provide you with safe and predictable outcomes.

How long will it take?

Every person is different and there is no one single answer to this question. Some people may need very few aligners meaning the treatment will be quick, others may need a lot more adding to the time. To get an accurate answer to this question you can book an aligner consultation. Only by taking accurate records and with careful planning can anyone answer this question accurately. As a ballpark timeframe, most people achieve the result they want in 6-12 months.

How much does it cost?

£3,000 to £3,600 depending on complexity.
Very complex cases will likely be referred to a specialist in your best interest.
Payments can be spread throughout treatment.
