Invisalign® Braces

  • Straight Teeth From a Platinum Elite Invisalign Provider.

Crowded or crooked teeth are common problems that affect so many people. Whether they’re caused by the way your jaw has developed, or as the result of an injury, there is a simple solution; Invisalign.

Invisalign makes it possible to deal with malocclusions without the need to wear an uncomfortable and impractical brace. Using clear removable aligners, Invisalign gently moves your teeth into a new position, helping you develop confidence in your new smile.

We’re proud of the fact that Dr Alfonso Rao is one of the few platinum elite Invisalign providers in the UK. This means that he’s virtually unrivalled in his level of care and service when it comes to Invisalign.

How Does Invisalign Work?

When you choose Invisalign, we’ll start off by taking some 3D images of your teeth. From this, we’ll be able to map out a plan for your treatment and preview exactly what your new smile will look like.

If you decide to go ahead with the treatment, this will involve wearing a series of clear aligners. These aligners apply gentle pressure across your teeth, gradually causing them to move into a new, more aesthetically pleasing position.

You can take your aligners out to eat and clean them. You’ll be given new aligners every few weeks. Each one will carefully alter the position of your teeth every so slightly in a way that you’ll barely notice is happening.

Typically, Invisalign treatment will take between 6-12 months depending on the extent of your malocclusions. During your initial consultation, Dr Alfonso Rao will create a timeline for your new smile.

Why Invisalign Is Right for You?

Treating malocclusions was once a case of having to wear a brace for up to two years. Now, with Invisalign, you won’t have to worry about the discomfort or having to hide your teeth while you’re undergoing treatment.

Invisalign aligners are transparent making them hard to spot when they’re in your mouth. Made out of medical-grade polyurethane resin, Invisalign uses non-BPA plastic that is lightweight, completely safe, and comfortable to wear.

This simple but effective treatment option is popular all over the world. By choosing Define Clinic to deliver your treatment, you’ll be expertly looked after by one of the country’s leading Invisalign dentists.

Frequently asked questions

Invisalign® braces are custom-made using unique SmartTrack material, designed to fit snugly to the teeth and to move them gradually over a period of time, and because of their personalisable nature, can be used to treat a host of dental concerns. This includes spacing issues, such as gapped teeth or overcrowding, as well as bite correction in the case of deep bites, open bites, underbites and crossbites. Invisalign® can even be used to treat singular teeth, even rotating where needed.
Invisalign is available in a multitude of removable brace ranges to accommodate different physical requirements and ages. Invisalign Teen is an option for younger patients, ensuring that older children are not held back with their food choices or in the pursuit of particular hobbies, such as playing contact sports, or wind instruments. Invisalign Lite is available as a short-term realignment solution for the swift and mild correction of concerns with the front teeth.
Invisalign® braces are virtually invisible due to the face they are made of clear plastic, and can be easily removed from the mouth - and so people will likely only know you use them if you tell them! Your aligners will be trimmed to your exact gumline, allowing for comfortable, indetectable wear for the recommended 22 hours a day.
Treatment duration varies depending on what we are trying to correct. It can be as little as a few months or several years. The length of time that your braces will require for results will depend on your own personal orthodontic situation and requirements, which will be established during the creation of your tailored treatment plan with one of our Invisalign experts. In many cases Invisalign® braces take far less than traditional fixed braces. Sometimes they might take longer than traditional fixed braces due to the nature of their application; the compliance of the patient is crucial to the success of the system! Fixed braces are controlled by the orthodontist, Invisalign is controlled by the patient. The full Invisalign® and Invisalign® Teen ranges can be used anywhere from six to 24 months on average for optimum results, while the Invisalign® Lite range for mild realignment to front teeth can take five to eight months.

The full Invisalign® and Invisalign® Teen ranges can be used anywhere from six to twenty four months on average for optimum results, while the Invisalign® Lite range for mild realignment to front teeth can take five to eight months.
While requiring gum health maintenance similar to traditional braces (see a hygienist every three months), Invisalign® braces are very straightforward to clean as they can be removed for brushing and flossing. You’ll need far fewer visits to the clinic than with fixed braces, as the aligners do all the work and there are no wires to change. On average, we’ll need to see you every eight to 12 weeks to check on your progress but this varies from person to person. Our team will provide comprehensive advice for how to keep your Invisalign® braces clean during your consultation, and will also be available throughout your teeth alignment journey.
