The clear alternative to traditional braces.
We use Invisalign as a sophisticated alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and smile.
Making the decision to straighten your teeth is easier when you know Invisalign lets you live life the way you want, without the inconvenience of other teeth-straightening methods.
The aligner trays are not only smooth and comfortable to wear, they are also removable. That means you can continue doing the things you normally would, from brushing and flossing, to eating whatever you like.
Invisalign works by using a series of clear trays that slip over your teeth and must be worn for 22 hours a day. With gentle pressure, the aligners guide your teeth into the ideal position to create your desired smile.
We custom-design your Invisalign aligners to fit the exact shape of your smile, meaning that your teeth are moved with greater precision, comfort, and in less time than standard braces.
Even if you have a special occasion, just take your aligners out and pop them back in when you're ready. Most people won't know you're going through treatment anyway, because the trays are virtually invisible.

Invisalign Braces FAQs
Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we get about Invisalign Braces.
1. How do Invisalign Braces work?
Each aligner makes slight adjustments to the position of your teeth, a process we map out in advance specifically for you. After two weeks you move to the next aligners, continuing the alignment of your smile.
2. What can Invisalign Braces treat?
i. Crowding | Invisalign can straighten teeth that are crowded or misaligned from there being not enough space in your mouth for this to naturally happen.
ii. Gapping | Invisalign can close gaps or spaces between your teeth that are a result of greater than average jaw growth or from teeth that are too small.
iii. OpenBite | Invisalign can be used to treat an OpenBite where there is a noticeable space between the top and bottom front teeth when you are biting together.
iv. OverBite | Invisalign can be used to treat an OverBite where the top front teeth sit substantially forward of the bottom front teeth when you are biting together.
v. Crossbite | Invisalign can be used to treat an CrossBite where one or more of your top teeth sit inside of the bottom front teeth when you are biting together.
vi. Underbite | Invisalign can be used to treat an UnderBite where the bottom front teeth sit forward of the upper front teeth when you are biting together.
3. Who is suitable for treatment with Invisalign Braces?
Invisalign aligners need to be worn for at least 22 hours a day to be able to achieve your desired result, so you must be confident you can accept this into your lifestyle during treatment.
Invisalign can be used for to treat most situations that traditional braces would. The main exceptions are significant alignment or bite issues that may require more complex orthodontic care.
4. What is the Invisalign Braces process?
A combination of digital 3D models and studio photography of your teeth are taken, which are sent together with a carefully designed treatment plan to Invisalign.
An Invisalign technician digitally moves around your teeth to bring them into the desired location. This gradual movement from start to finish is made into an animation, which we get you to view and approve.
Invisalign then manufactures your aligners which are sent to us within a few weeks. Each is worn for 2 weeks before moving to the next, and we review your progress to make sure your teeth are moving as planned.
