Invisalign ® is a tailored and bespoke treatment that is a solution for adults who want straight teeth without the hassle of wearing metal braces.
How does it work?
Your journey to a straighter smile will begin with a consultation with our Invisalign® certified dentist, Jignesh (you can read more about Jignesh in our ‘meet the team’ section). Your suitability for treatment will be assessed and you can visualise what your smile will look like following the treatment.
Invisalign® is a clear aligner system that works to straighten your teeth in a virtually invisible way. You will be provided with a set of aligners that your dentist will show you how to wear.
What will happen after my consultation?
After you attend for your initial consultation appointment (which is deducted from your treatment if you go ahead), you will be informed right away of whether you are eligible for Invisalign®. You can start your journey straight away if you are. This will involve photographs and impressions which we will use to construct a 3D visualisation of your whole Invisalign® journey. We will show you predictions of how your smile will evolve over the course of treatment.
How long will it take?
Each case is different and will be determined during your consultation appointment, but the average case is around 12 months. If you have an event coming up for which you’d like your teeth straight by, it is best to have your consultation as early as you can.
Does it hurt?
Most patients will report mild initial discomfort but get used to it very quickly. Within a short period of time the benefits of wearing an invisible aligner will become clear. You can still enjoy your favourite foods as there are no traditional brackets for food to get caught in and it is not noticeable unless really close-up.
What are the benefits of Invisalign® at Bourne Dental practice?
Regular review appointments - where your dentist will actively monitor the progress of your teeth (all included in our treatment) and minor adjustments will be made to ensure that your journey is a success and you are comfortable with all aspects of your treatment.
Bespoke, tailor-made care plan - Importantly, we recognise that every patient is different and has individual and bespoke needs. You care will be tailored towards what is best for you in an order and pace that’s right for you and your needs.
Fixed aligners for a lifelong straight smile – Once your Invisalign® journey has been successful, you will be provided with a custom set of Vivera® retainers which will ensure that your teeth don’t drift away from your perfect smile. Normally priced at £400, these will be included within the cost of your treatment.
