HOW INVISALIGN WORKS

Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made for your teeth.

As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.

PATIENT JOURNEY

Invisalign Leamington Spa

Initial Consultation

There is no charge for an initial visit to assess your suitability and answer any questions you may have on Invisalign.

Once you’re on board, you will plan your treatment with either Viren or Upen, our dental practitioners. Whether your smile needs a minor improvement or something more extensive, Invisalign® can work for you.

Our team will take impressions and photos of your teeth to establish whether Invisalign is the right option for you.

Treatment plan & 3D Simulation

A detailed treatment plan and 3D simulation will be formed, that will allow you to see what your teeth will end up looking like, before the treatment has even begun.

Our ClinCheck® treatment software allows you to see a model of the proposed treatment plan.

Aligners are created

Once you’ve reviewed and agreed on your treatment Invisalign will make a series of aligners that will fit only you.

Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually little by little, week by week into the desired position.

Wear the aligners

You wear each aligner for two weeks, before moving on to the next in the series, only taking them out to eat, drink, brush and floss your teeth as normal.

Follow up appointments

We will see you every 4-6 weeks during your treatment until your teeth are straightened into the positions that we have prescribed, until it is determined that your treatment is complete.

The average treatment time is 9-18 months.

"I had wanted to have my teeth straightened for a long time. However, I didn't want train tracks or something that would be very noticeable. At my initial consultation, Viren clearly explained the process that having Invisalign aligners would involve. I have nearly finished my Invisalign treatment and for the last couple of months people have started to comment on the improvement of my teeth. Throughout my treatment, Viren's gentle and genuine care has been second to none. I have never felt rushed or uncomfortable to ask questions or to discuss my treatment. I would highly recommend Invisalign to people who wanted a more discreet way of having their teeth straightened. I would also highly recommend Viren and the Grove practice for their high level of care."

CLEAR BRACES COST

Invisalign cost

As a general rule the cost of clear braces is comparable to traditional fixed braces, however we can only fully determine your costs once we have carried out a full consultation appointment.

As a general guide, prices for Invisalign treatment are generally between £2,880 and £3,980. However, if only minor tooth movement is required, prices start from £1,580.

Finance options

We offer a wide range of finance options, including the choice to spread payments in monthly instalments over one, two or three years, meaning you could have straighter teeth from under £90 per month.

Visit our Finance Page to find out more (it also has a handy finance calculator)

How long does it take?

Invisalign treatment normally takes the same amount of time as traditional fixed braces. It depends on the complexity of the tooth movements required, with most treatments lasting between 9 and 18 months.  Your dentist will advise you further.

Free initial consultation

There is no charge for an initial visit to chat with our Invisalign dentist or our co-ordinator to assess your suitability and answer any questions you may have on Invisalign.

There is a fee payable for the records and full consultation appointment and this is then used to produce your individual ClinCheck® (your virtual 3D treatment plan).

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Invisalign a new treatment?

No. More than 2.5 million patients worldwide have new smiles thanks to Invisalign.

Is it just available in the UK?

Invisalign is sold in more than 45 countries across Europe, the USA, Canada, China, Japan, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.

Can any dentist treat patients with Invisalign?

No. Before treating patients with Invisalign, orthodontists and dentists must attend specialised training. There are more than 82,000 Invisalign-trained dentists and orthodontists worldwide.

What are the aligners made of?

Invisalign’s aligners are made of a strong, medical-grade thermoplastic that has been uniquely developed for the treatment. They are virtually invisible, custom-made for each patient, and fit snugly over the teeth.

What does the aligner look like?

It looks like a clear thin bite guard or whitening tray, but stronger, and a little less flexible.

It is not dissimilar to a retainer but it has highly advanced sophisticated changes in-built into it to be able to move your teeth.

How long does the treatment take?

Invisalign treatment normally takes the same amount of time as traditional fixed braces. It depends on the complexity of the tooth movements required, with most treatments lasting between 9 and 18 months.  Your dentist will advise you further.

How often will I need to see my dentist once I start treatment?

Patients normally need to visit their dentist for a short appointment every four to six weeks to ensure treatment is progressing as planned and to receive their next set of aligners. Your dentist will tell you more.

Is the treatment painful?

Some patients experience very minor discomfort when they insert a new aligner. This feeling of pressure is completely normal, and is a sign that the aligners are working. The discomfort normally goes away after a couple of days.

Can Invisalign correct problems like overbites and gaps between teeth?

Overbites can be improved in most cases. Your dentist will tell you if the treatment will work for you. Spaces between teeth are usually easy to close with Invisalign.

Since my braces were removed, my teeth have shifted. Can Invisalign reverse this?

Many Invisalign patients have previously had fixed braces at some point in their past. Invisalign can usually correct any relapse that occurs after braces.

What if I had a bridge or a crown?

Bridges firmly link two or more teeth together. This means they offer significant resistance to tooth movement. Crowns do not usually affect the Invisalign treatment, unless the attachments for the aligners need to be bonded onto them. Your dentist can give you further advice.

I am currently wearing braces. Can I switch to Invisalign?

A large number of patients are treated with a combination of fixed braces and the Invisalign system. Your dentist can advise you further.

Once the treatment is complete, will I need to wear a retainer?

Yes. A retainer will keep your teeth stable in their new position. If you do not wear it, your teeth may move back to their original positions.

Are there any restrictions on what I can eat whilst I am being treated?

No, unlike with traditional wires and brackets, you can eat whatever you like during the Invisalign treatment. This is because you remove your aligners to eat and drink. It is important that you brush and floss your teeth after each meal, before you re-insert your aligners.

How often do I need to wear the aligners?

Aligners should be worn at all times, except when eating, brushing or flossing teeth.

Will the aligners affect speech?

Most patients report no effect on their speech, but there can be a short adjustment period.

Can I smoke while wearing the aligners?

Smoking is discouraged, as it can stain or discolour the aligners.

Can I chew gum while wearing the aligners?

Chewing gum is not advised, as it can stick to the aligners. The aligners should be removed for all meals and snacks.

What is the best way to clean my aligners?

You should brush and rinse your aligners in lukewarm water, and use Invisalign Cleaning Crystals or special cleaning tablets. You should brush your teeth after each meal before you re-insert your aligners.

What happens if I lose an aligner? Or break my aligner?

A new aligner can be manufactured and sent to the practice, a fee of £80 will be applied for loss of an aligner in adult cases.

What To Do:    

  •  Go back to the previous aligner and continue wearing this until the next is available.
  • If you are more than 10-12 days into the aligner and it is ‘passive’ or ‘feels looser’, you can move on to the next aligner, but call the practice to check.
  • If any doubt, preference is that you stay on their previous aligner rather than moving onto next.

If you break an aligner, the same applies.

My attachments or buttons have come off...What shall I do?

What aligner is currently being worn? How far into treatment are you? What is the total number of aligners?

If you are more than a few aligners into treatment or refinement, we need to order a new template to place the attachments (allowing 3-4 days for this to arrive). Therefore we ask you continue wearing your current aligner and NOT move on to the next. An appointment is made to refix the attachment as soon as possible or if appropriate it can be done at your next review.

Please always call the practice to check which is best and we will make the necessary arrangements.

What is the cost of clear braces?

The clear braces cost can be similar to traditional fixed braces. We would need to carry out a consultation to give you a definite price, however typical costs for invisalign are between £2880 and £3980. For minor tooth movement, prices start from £1,580.

If you have any other questions, please ask your dentist at your complimentary Invisalign consultation.
