The journey towards a beautiful smile shouldn’t get in the way of life’s best moments. With Invisalign™, teeth are gently guided into position with aligners that are clear and removable—for a smile that’s enhanced with discreet convenience.
Removable & Invisible
There’s no need to put special occasions on hold. Invisalign™ can be removed for important events and is almost invisible when worn.
Because Invisalign™ aligners can be removed to eat, drink and clean your teeth, the risk of build-up and other hygiene complications are significantly reduced.
What is Invisalign™?
Invisalign™ is a cosmetic dental treatment that can conveniently and discreetly straighten teeth. Using a series of clear aligners that are worn for 22 hours a day, teeth are gently and gradually guided into place until they reach their desired position.
Because Invisalign™ is virtually invisible, and the aligners can be taken out to eat, brush your teeth and for special occasions, it’s a popular treatment for patients who are after a flexible, hygienic and attractive teeth straightening solution.
What can Invisalign™ treatment fix?
Invisalign™ can be a great option in your cosmetic treatment plan, but it isn’t suitable for everyone. That’s why it’s important to have a thorough consultation with a dentist who can assess your suitability and advise you on the most effective solution for your unique needs.
Invisalign™ may be a good treatment, if you have:
- Crooked teeth
- Missing teeth or spacing
- Gummy smile
- Narrow smile
What is the Invisalign™ treatment procedure?
The Invisalign™ treatment procedure generally follows the following stages:
Cosmetic smile enhancement consultation
Your journey begins with a highly personalised consultation where we work with you to find out exactly what you are after and determine whether you’re a suitable candidate for Invisalign™ treatment.
Build your plan
Our top cosmetic dentists will personally design a treatment plan based on your teeth, facial symmetry and desired outcome. Using state-of-the art ‘clin-check’ technology, we’ll show you exactly how your teeth will move throughout your treatment and what your final teeth will look like. Our cosmetic dentists are leaders in their field, with an eye for how your overall look should come together.
Treatment time can be up to 18 months.
What are the benefits of Invisalign™?
There can be many benefits in choosing Invisalign™ for your treatment plan.
Every two weeks when you first wear your new set of aligners, you can expect to feel a slight tension as your teeth start to shift. However, most people find the discomfort tolerable and it subside within 24 hours. Because Invisalign™ doesn’t have the brackets and wires of traditional braces, many Invisalign™ wearers find their treatment quite comfortable in comparison.
Because your Invisalign trays are clear and discreet, it can be virtually impossible to tell that you’re undergoing treatment. This is especially appealing for our adult patients who may not want the stigma of wearing conventional braces. The aligners can also be removed for special occasions such as weddings or important work events.
While conventional braces require the wearer to restrict certain foods and can be troublesome to clean, Invisalign has the convenience of being removable. This means you can eat whatever you like. After your meal simply brush the trays and pop them back in. Because the wire in traditional braces can attract bacteria, straightening your teeth with Invisalign can be a more hygienic option, as your risk of complications from build-up is significantly reduced.
How much does Invisalign™ cost?
If Invisalign™ is the right treatment option for you, we will discuss costs, and provide you with a tailored treatment plan detailing all fees. As well as being completely transparent, we have a variety of flexible payment options to suit different budgets.
How many hours a day will I need to wear my Invisalign?
It’s very important that you wear your Invisalign™ 22 hours a day. If you don’t, your treatment won’t track how it’s supposed to and when you go to put in your next set of aligners, they may not fit properly. This can lengthen your overall treatment time and fail to get you the results you hoped for.
Is Invisalign™ completely invisible?
While Invisalign™ aligners are clear and generally hard to detect, some people may notice them because they aren’t completely invisible. During your treatment, your dentist may also place ‘attachments’ on your teeth. These are tiny little pieces of tooth colored filling material that help your teeth move. These attachments are sometimes noticeable.
I already have braces. Can I switch over to Invisalign™?
It may be possible to switch from braces to Invisalign™. The only way to determine your suitability is to book a consultation with the Bond Street team.
