Clear aligners

We use the innovative Invisalign® system, which offers a more discreet way to straighten teeth using a series of clear, customised aligners. With no fixed brackets or wires, these can be taken out for cleaning your teeth and eating. Each aligner is very slightly different so crooked, crowded or gappy teeth are gradually moved to an improved position.

Treatment steps

  • We take impressions and photos of your teeth and 3D technology creates a personalised plan, which shows how your teeth will move and look following treatment.
  • When the unique aligners have been produced in a laboratory, you will wear a different one every two weeks, until the desired result is achieved.

Treatment times can vary but most cases are usually completed within 6-12 months. However, you do have to be sure to wear the aligners for 22-24 hours per day to benefit from successful and speedy results. You will also need to wear a retainer following treatment to keep your newly aligned teeth straight.

Currently, it is increasingly difficult to get appointments at your existing or register with a new dental practice. We fully appreciate how frustrating this can feel and we are working hard to continue to provide you with a quality service.

We are asking that now more than ever, please be considerate of these difficult times and always allow 24 hours to cancel an appointment. Giving us this notice allows the team time to allocate it to someone in need.

Any failed or late cancelled appointments will now have the 'late cancellation fee; applied in full*, your further appointments may be cancelled, treatments discontinued, or registration withdrawn from the practice.

Please expect to wait a minimum of 8 weeks for an alternative appointment date, this will be made after the late cancellation fee has been paid.

Our team and clinicians are here to help as much as they can, please treat them with respect and kindness, we have a zero-tolerance policy.

Thank you for your cooperation.
