To start your journey to a new straighter, brighter smile, simply book your FREE Invisalign Smile Assessment. Talk with our dentists or one of our friendly team using our new VIDEO Consultation (you can do this on your mobile phone or laptop with camera and microphone).
When you book your VIDEO Consultation, you will receive a confirmation e-mail and SMS together with a helpful reminder 15 minutes before your appointment. Our system also makes it easy for you to re-schedule or cancel your appointment.
On the day of your appointment, we will create your FREE Smile Visualisation using our state-of-the-art Itero 3D imaging scanner. This procedure is completely non-invasive, pain-free and takes just a few minutes.
You will be able to see the results of your scan within just a few minutes. This will show you how your new smile could look and you will then be given access to these scans to help you consider if you would like to go ahead with treatment.
We will then explain how Invisalign treatment works and give you a guide to timescales and costs.
On the date you start treatment, we will carry out a thorough clinical examination to re-check your suitability for treatment and if necessary, recommend any pre-treatment work (for example, we may recommend that you visit the Hygienist for a thorough clean of your mouth before starting your teeth straightening).
We will also take photographs of your teeth and smile. Together with your detailed 3D scan, these will help our Invisalign technicians to create your aligners. We will now submit your details and your custom Invisalign clear aligners will be scheduled for manufacture. They will then be shipped to the Practice and an appointment will be arranged for you to collect them and begin the treatment process.
Once your Invisalign clear aligners have been delivered to the Practice, we will get back in touch to arrange an appointment to fit your aligners and explain what you need to know as your teeth straightening begins.
You will be provided with a series of Invisalign clear aligners to fit approximately every week. You will be able to do this at home but we will arrange regular appointments during the course of treatment to check all is progressing as planned.

Invisalign clear aligners are a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, we can plan your complete Invisalign® treatment based on your unique clinical conditions, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.
As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign clear aligners is dependent upon the complexity of your teeth straightening and your course of treatment. As a general rule, the cost is comparable to traditional fixed braces. In simple terms, the more complex your teeth straightening, the more Invisalign aligners are needed to achieve your best smile. Conversely, the less complex the straightening, the less Invisalign® aligners are needed.
Consequently, based on the number of Invisalign aligners your dentist prescribes as needed, the price goes up or down accordingly. On this basis, only an accredited Invisalign® dentist or Orthodontist Provider is able to determine your cost. However, in the UK, prices for Invisalign treatment is generally between £3,000 - £5,000* (depending upon the complexity).

Dentists and orthodontists have successfully used removable appliances for years. However, with the application of Align Technology’s 3D computer technology and aligner customisation, Invisalign clear aligners can be used to treat a wide range of patients who want straighter teeth.
Invisalign clear aligners are nearly invisible. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these virtually invisible aligners, making Invisalign® treatment a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.
Invisalign clear aligners are removable giving you the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and to maintain good oral hygiene.
Unlike traditional fixed dental braces, there are no metal brackets or wires. This means that in most cases, less time is spent at the dentist for adjustments. Advanced 3D computer-imaging technology allows you to view your virtual results and receive a detailed treatment plan so you can see how your teeth are expected to look when your treatment is complete.
With experience, an Invisalign dentist or orthodontist can use Invisalign clear aligners to treat malocclusion for a majority of adults and adolescents who want a better smile. For teenagers, talk to us about Invisalign® Teen which may be a very good treatment option.
The total duration of treatment depends on the complexity of the treatment and is generally comparable to that of traditional braces. Typically treatment can last between 3 and 18 months. During your consultation, we will provide you with more detailed information.
