Invisalign aligners

What is Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment uses clear, removable aligners, which straighten your smile discretely. With no wires or brackets, they’re a discreet alternative to conventional fixed braces.

The aligners are made from a flexible plastic material and custom-made to fit your mouth. You’ll have a series of aligner sets that are changed every week, until you achieve your final result.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

  • Virtually invisible: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners don’t use wires or brackets and are barely noticeable. They are thin, transparent and custom-made to fit your mouth.
  • Quick results: The system can correct several orthodontic issues to give you a balanced, straight smile in as little as six months1.
  • Removable: Invisalign aligners are removable, so you’ll find it easy to brush and eat normally during treatment.
  • Comfortable: The aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces2. They’re flexible and custom-made for a comfortable fit.
  • See your finished smile: Some of our dentists use 3D imaging technology, to assess your teeth and create your customised aligners. Before your treatment even starts, you'll be able to see how your straighter smile will look.

How much do Invisalign aligners cost?

The cost of treatment varies for each case, depending on the complexity of your case and the type of Invisalign aligners you need.

At Bupa Dental Care, we believe in transparent pricing, so your dentist will always explain any costs in full before treatment.

How Invisalign works

Here's a step-by-step guide to Invisalign treatment

Step 1.

Your consultation: Book a consultation with a Bupa Dental Care dentist or orthodontist. They’ll examine your smile, discuss your needs and recommend brace or aligner options. They may also use an intraoral scanner, allowing you to preview the potential results.

Step 2.

Making your aligners: A series of clear and removable aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth.

Step 3.

Receive your aligners: Your Bupa Dental Care dentist or orthodontist will ensure your aligners are comfortable and fit well. They’ll let you know what to expect throughout treatment and can answer any questions.

Step 4.

Wear your aligners: You’ll need to wear each set of aligners for 20-22 hours a day. You can remove them to eat, drink, brush and floss. Every four weeks, your dentist or orthodontist will check your treatment is progressing as planned.

Step 5.

Finish your treatment: Your treatment ends when you’ve worn each set of aligners. To maintain your straighter smile, you’ll need to wear a retainer every night for a year, then usually a few nights a week, as instructed by your dentist or orthodontist.

How long does treatment take?

The average Invisalign treatment takes 12-18 months, but this varies depending on your individual needs3. Treatment can take as little as six months in some cases.

At your initial consultation, your dentist or orthodontist will advise the best type of braces or aligners for you and how long treatment should take.
