A pair of Invisalign braces

Increasingly, more and more people are choosing Invisalign in London over conventional braces. The main reason is because it is much more discreet than other brace options.

As the cost of these ‘invisible’ braces continues to become more competitive, this trend is likely to accelerate, making the Invisalign cost in London more appealing to patients.

As long as the Invisalign cost in London remains comparable to the price of traditional fixed metal braces, the procedure will continue to grow in popularity. Invisalign is available through certified dentists, such as Graham Tinkler.

The Invisalign brand

The Invisalign brand was the first of its kind. The name has become synonymous with all clear aligners – like how the name of the brand Bic is often used as a substitute for a pen.

You can only get Invisalign brand aligner trays through a certified dentist, where they can help you get a good estimate of how much you should expect to pay for the full treatment.

The Invisalign process

Invisalign uses incremental aligners to adjust the patient’s teeth to the desired position. This will start with a mould being taken of the teeth. This will then be used to create a 3D model of the teeth using the most up-to-date modern computer technology.

Your dentist will then provide a treatment plan and the computer will be used to create an image of the retainer at various stages between your current teeth and the desired outcome. An individual aligner will then be 3D printed for each stage of the process, with each aligner needing to be worn for around two weeks before moving onto the next aligner in the sequence. This will help to gradually adjust your smile over weeks or months until it’s exactly the way you and your dentist want it.

The costs of Invisalign

Just like traditional metal braces, the Invisalign cost in London will depend on a variety of factors. These include things like the severity of alignment issues, time of treatment, location and the experience level of the dentist chosen. Many dental practices also offer monthly payment plans to spread the cost.
