By using Invisalign® clear aligners, achieving the smile you always dreamed of doesn’t have to be a big deal. The traditional route to correcting issues such as crooked teeth, gaps and crowded mouths has long been visible braces. However, the Invisalign® system doesn't use brackets or wires - is it clear, removable and comfortable, so it won’t interfere with your appearance or your life.
Worldwide, seven million people have had their teeth straightened with Invisalign® clear aligners.
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, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. We will then produce a series of Invisalign® clear aligners, custom-made for your teeth, to move them little by little.
Each aligner is worn for 1-2 weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position. Your Invisalign® treatment time will be determined by your dentist, based on your specific needs.

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. Using the technology, we can show you how your new smile could look and we will give you access to these scans to help you consider if you would like to go ahead with treatment. We will also explain how Invisalign® treatment works and give you a treatment plan detailing expected timescales and costs.
On the day 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 custom aligners.
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 everything you need to know as your teeth straightening begins.
We will provide you with a series of Invisalign® clear aligners to fit approximately every 1-2 weeks. 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.
The iTero Digital Scanner looks like a small wand and is a great way of capturing 3D digital images of your mouth quickly and comfortably without any mess or discomfort, scanning your teeth and showing what the end result of your treatment may be.
So, if you are considering any adult orthodontic treatment including Invisalign, please contact us to take advantage of our free initial consultation. We would love to show you how the Invisalign® system and iTero Intraoral Scanner work together to create the smile results you want.
Invisalign® clear aligners are virtually invisible so people may not even notice that you’re wearing them, 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 practrice 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.
Invisalign® treatment is clinically proven to be effective in addressing a variety of teeth straightening conditions such as:
Invisalign® clear aligners move teeth with an appropriate placement of controlled movement on the teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® treatment not only controls the amount of movement per aligner, but also the timing of the movement. So at each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, as per the treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system that moves teeth into the desired prescribed position.
Invisalign® appointment intervals are generally the same as with traditional braces but can be much quicker with less time spent in the dentist’s or orthodontist's chair during appointments as no adjustments need to be made to wires/brackets. Patients typically visit their Invisalign dentist every 4 to 6 weeks to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned and to receive their next few sets of Invisalign® aligners. Your Invisalign® dentist or orthodontist will decide based on your treatment plan.
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, your Invisalign dentist or orthodontist can provide you with more detailed information.
Some people may experience temporary, minor discomfort for a few days at the beginning of each new stage of treatment when they insert a new Invisalign® aligner. This is normal and is typically described as a feeling of pressure. It is a sign that the aligners are working – moving your teeth gradually, helping you to achieve the final results. This discomfort typically goes away in a couple of days.
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 are generally between £3,000 -£4,500 (depending upon the complexity).
"I was lucky enough to switch to Priyesh Patel after developing gum and bone problems. He has seen me through every step of my fantastic, high quality treatment, culminating in him doing my implants. He has been amazing throughout and made me feel comfortable and positive and continues to do so. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!"

"Had very bad infection of a molar which had caused sleepless nights, my problem was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Minimal pain during and after treatment. Even the pain killing injection is numbed nowadays. Going back to have implants later this year to complete my treatment, brilliant service."
