What Is Invisalign®, And Is It Right For You?
Let’s face it. There are more choices than ever before when it comes to clear aligners. However, for anyone who has done some research on the topic, Invisalign® will most likely ring a bell. With widespread recognition as well as celebrity users such as Oprah Winfrey, Justin Bieber, Serena Williams and Tom Cruise standing behind the brand, it has definitely made a name as the new generation of traditional braces.
Since popularity doesn’t promise a one-size-fits-all solution, it’s important to understand some of its fundamental differences compared to other aligners and whether the teeth-straightening solution will suit you.

What is Invisalign® – the clear alternative
How Invisalign® works
1. We begin with an Invisalign® consultation
2. Personalised treatment plan
Two weeks after your initial consultation, your personalised treatment plan is ready. You can see a 3D preview of your smile, thanks to Invisalign’s use of digital scans. You will also find out the treatment costs and timeframe.
3. Your aligners are customised for you
Your aligners will be custom made for you in the largest, most advanced mass customisation process in the world, employing advanced technology and science.
4. Your first aligners are ready!
After you’ve decided to go ahead with treatment, we will provide you with three aligners at a time. Once a month has passed, we will see you again to review your teeth and you’ll then pick up your next three aligners.
5. Complimentary Teeth Whitening
Once your Invisalign® treatment is complete, you can enjoy complimentary teeth whitening which is included in the package.
You will have customised retainers to take home to ensure your teeth remain straight after your Invisalign® treatment.
Advantages of Invisalign®
1. Invisible Appearance
Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign® and their clear aligners are completely invisible. This allows a much greater peace of mind, especially for those looking for a subtle aesthetic.
Unlike traditional metal braces, clear aligners are made from smooth plastic and thus, are without sharp or extruding edges. Invisalign® and their trays are custom made to fit your teeth and mouth for extra comfort.
3. Improved Cleanliness
Invisalign® are easy to take off when it’s time to either brush your teeth, floss or eat food. They’re also super smooth to pop back in again. The trays themselves may be cleaned easily. To make sure there is no build up, users simply need to remove the trays and rinse or brush them with a toothbrush.
4. Safe and Removable
Whilst metal braces could break and snap, posing unnecessary discomfort and complications, clear aligners focus on security and comfortability. The clear aligner trays are also removable which makes everyday life more convenient.
5. Beautifully Straight Teeth
Last but not least, clear aligners have been proven to effectively deliver countless customers with their ideal smile. It could be said that the results speak for themselves.
