Invisalign (Clear Brace)
Invisalign® is a semi-invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom made, nearly undetectable, removable aligners. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since previously wearing braces, you'll have a new reason to smile.
Upon initial examination, together we decide if Invisalign is the right choice for you.
Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign® carefully translates your orthodontist’s instructions into a series of precisely custom-made aligners. You wear each aligner in sequence for two weeks at a time and gradually, millimetre by millimetre you will achieve the intended result – straighter teeth.
Invisalign® - show off your smile, not your braces Nothing is as important as a genuine and heartfelt smile. Whether in your professional life or when you are out socialising, an attractive smile can make you feel happier and more relaxed – as well as making the right impression!
If you’ve ever thought about how improving your smile could help you to feel more confident, Invisalign® might be for you.With the Invisalign® technique you can have the smile you always wanted, without traditional, metal braces.
Invisalign® - the clear choice
Invisalign® can help to treat a variety of orthodontic concerns and studies have shown it can be better for your dental hygiene during treatment as well.
Your treatment is nearly invisible, almost no-one will be able to tell you are wearing Invisalign®. You can smile more during as well as after your treatment and because you can remove Invisalign® you can eat and drink what you like.
So far over 480,000 patients worldwide have more reasons to smile –thanks to Invisalign®.

Only your dentist can advise whether Invisalign® is the best treatment for you.
Invisalign offers a range of treatment options for teenagers.
The great benefit of Invisalign is that it provides an aesthetic, more flexible way to give teenagers the confidence of a great smile. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are comfortable, removable and nearly invisible, which means teenagers can carry on enjoying life without the restrictions, irritation and self-consciousness associated with metal brackets and wires.
Invisalign aligners are also removable, so teenagers can continue brushing and flossing normally. This can lead to better overall dental health in the future.
What options are available to teenagers?
Invisalign has several treatment options available for teenagers, depending on the stage of teeth development.
Some teenagers will be suitable for the same Invisalign treatment as adult patients. Younger teenagers, or those who haven't got all of their adult teeth erupted can be treated with Invisalign Teen – a treatment designed specifically for teenagers. Our specialist orthodontist, Dr Hirani, will determine which treatment best suits your individual needs and the condition of your teeth.
Why Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen has been developed with teenagers, parents and leading orthodontists who understand the active lifestyles and unique treatment needs of teenage patients.
The Invisalign Teen aligners are made with the same Invisalign technology used for Invisalign aligners, moving teeth gradually without the need for metal or wires.
But because teens (and their mouths) are constantly on the move, we've added a few special features:
Blue wear-indicators fade from blue to clear to help your orthodontist, you, and your teenager to gauge wear time.
Special features designed to compensate for the eruption of canines, second premolars and second molars.
Six free individual replacement aligners are included in case any get lost or misplaced.
