Invisalign Invisible Braces

Invisalign treatment is a great way to straighten your teeth and create the smile that you always wanted. Both Rob Gair and Kerry Wilson provide Invisalign treatment to our patients here at Whickham Dental Practice.

The process starts with a consultation where we discuss the improvements that you would like to see and we can then explain how Invisalign works to achieve this. We take photographs and use a digital scanner to plan the steps ahead.

Invisalign uses a series of clear “aligners” to move your teeth into the desired position. We review your progression on a regular basis and at the end of your treatment will provide retainers to ensure a lasting result. At this stage we often provide whitening treatments to improve your smile even further.

Sometimes after Invisalign, patients may benefit from composite bonding (link) to ‘tweak’ the shape of specific teeth and this can be provided by either Rob, Kerry or Paul Stott.

Invisalign treatments start from £2500, and the cost of the treatment can be paid in instalments.
