What Makes Invisalign The Top Choice For A Straighter Smile

When it comes to adult teeth straightening, there are many different choices on the market, many of which claim to be fast, discreet and reliable. But one brand stands out from the crowd time and time again – Invisalign. So what is it about the Invisalign system that has made it the choice for millions of people worldwide? Read on to learn more.

Trusted by millions

It is often said that the numbers speak for themselves – and this is certainly true for Invisalign. To date, over 9 million people worldwide have been able to transform their smiles as a result of Invisalign clear aligners. It is well established that being unhappy about your teeth can really impact your confidence and self-esteem, meaning that by transforming your smile you can also transform your life – as the many testimonials of Invisalign patients reveal.

Benefits of Invisalign

How does Invisalign work?

Unlike traditional fixed braces, with Invisalign treatment you wear a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. There are no brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.

Invisalign clear aligners are made of flexible plastic called SmartTrack®, a patented, cutting-edge thermoplastic material created exclusively for Invisalign treatment. They are thin, clear, and fit snugly over your teeth, making them virtually invisible.

What does the process look like?

Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation with one of our expert Invisalign-trained dentists. We will evaluate your smile and then map out a precise, customized digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your smile.

Thanks to our Itero Digital Scanner, we can create a 3D simulation to show you what your teeth will look like after the process. You won’t have to deal with any messy putty, it’s all digital.

Once you approve your plan, your unique aligners will be created. You will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by your dentist. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, until you reach your beautiful new smile.

Free from BPA, BPS, latex and gluten

When you choose to use Invisalign clear aligners, you can be sure that your health is in good hands. Based on current knowledge and testing of the raw materials and processes used in the manufacture of Invisalign aligners and retainers, we are not aware of any latex, parabens, phthalates, glutaraldehyde, epoxy or Bisphenol A (BPA) present in Invisalign aligners or retainers.

Correct previous orthodontic work

Many patients choose Invisalign to correct their teeth when they have had fixed braces previously, often in their youth, and their teeth have shifted over time. Invisalign clear aligners are discreet and offer predictable results, making them a perfect solution to remedy teeth that have shifted.

Can I use Invisalign if I have crowns or veneers?

In many cases, it may still be possible to use Invisalign clear aligners if you have crown or veneers, however only your dentist can advise you if they are suitable for you based on an individual consultation. Invisalign aligners are designed to move each tooth individually, so are generally not recommended if you have had bridgework as this connects two or more teeth.
