Achieve a Straighter Smile for Life: The Exact Way Invisalign Works to Move Your Teeth

You might have heard of Invisalign, its advantages and why it’s so great not only for teens but mostly for adults. But do you know how it really works? Because in fact, that’s where the magic really happens.

Who would have thought that a faster, more discreet and effective treatment like Invisalign would cost the same as older, stigmatised treatments like metal braces?

Often compared to traditional, fixed metal braces, Invisalign is only similar in the fact that they cost around the same amount of money. Considering the advanced process of Invisalign, this is incredible and provides a much better value for money for patients looking to improve their smiles.

So, how exactly does it work, and why are millions of people around the world choosing it over other orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry options?

Moving your teeth into correct alignment

Invisalign is a treatment that delivers what it promises, and whilst we know it might be difficult to believe that you can have straight teeth without pain or metal brackets, we’re here to inform you that it is!

So, when it comes to the questions “does Invisalign actually work?”, you only have to take a look at the transformative results to believe it. See before and after images here.

These virtually invisible aligners are custom-made to suit and fit your mouth comfortably.

Working in a series of trays, you can expect your teeth to gradually shift into their new correct positions very quickly.

On average, every two or three weeks patients will receive their new set of aligners, which will keep the movement progressing according to the treatment plan your orthodontist would have created.

How do we know where we want the teeth to move?

How the Invisalign procedure works:

  • our technology makes teeth straightening fast and easyAn initial consultation
  • Begin treatment and wear your aligners
  • Go about your usual routine
  • Regular appointments and checkups

With Invisalign, nothing is over complicated. The clear brace system is designed to be simple, comfortable and effective.

So, there’s no surprise that it only takes three steps to put you on your way to a new, incredible smile.

Get a sneak peak of your new smile first!

What patient does not want to see what their smile will look like at the end of their treatment?

Using precise imaging technology which takes thousands of images per second, we can draw up a digital scan that will show the current malocclusion or bite problems and how it will transform as you progress through your series of custom trays.

Are you a good candidate?
