Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to traditional braces that uses invisible aligners that are custom made to fit your teeth.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a type of brace for your teeth that can be used to treat mild to complex teeth straightening issues. Find out more.
What is the procedure used for?
The treatment is used to correct your smile – whether you have a misaligned bite, gaps in your teeth or a crooked smile. The great thing about Invisalign is that the braces are removable and nearly invisible, plus they are custom-made to move your teeth little by little thereby keeping any discomfort to a minimum.
Who is the treatment suitable for?
In the hands of our experienced Invisalign Provider, the treatment can be used to treat most mild to complex teeth straightening issues. We suggest booking an appointment with your local dentist to find out more.

What happens during the procedure?
Once your dentist has confirmed you’re eligible for treatment, they will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth. Your dentist will then use these to create you a bespoke treatment plan designed to get the best results.
You will then have to wear a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks. Take a look at how it works.
What are the side effects or risks?
You may experience tenderness of teeth and gums, but generally the discomfort is minimal. See: How to deal with tender gums.
What results can I typically expect?
If you don’t wear your aligners for the recommended hours per day you can affect the ability to finish on time and get your desired results, so you need to make sure you wear them.
Results and patient satisfaction for Invisalign is extremely high. Please contact HG Cosmetic Dentists for more information.
You’ll receive regular appointments at your practice to monitor progress and receive your new aligners. After finishing your treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain your new smile.
You may also opt to have a teeth whitening treatment afterwards in order to have a great looking smile, whilst still keeping your own teeth.
