What is Invisalign clear aligners? It’s virtually invisible braces. Some people spell it out invisiline clear braces or invisaline or invisilign. Invisalign braces are equally loved by adults, teens, and kids. Check out invisalign before and after pictures below.

Many adults and professionals today, prefer Invisalign in London because it is a discreet and less visible way to achieve straighter teeth and a lovely smile. Popularly called “invisible braces”, Invisalign aligners are clear and less noticeable than regular braces. Even more, Invisalign treatment integrates an advanced technology that creates multiple sets of aligners in advance.

Therefore, you don’t have to visit your doctor to “tighten’ your braces like traditional braces. We will provide you with enough aligners for up to six or eight weeks of treatments.

All you need do is take out your aligners when you want to brush, floss or eat. With Invisalign treatment, you can maintain your comfort while achieving that signature smile you desire.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Your doctor will provide individual sets of aligners to be worn for one to two weeks, before moving on to the next one. You will also need to visit your doctor every six to eight weeks to ensure you are making progress. With fewer visits, you don’t have to spend much time making trips to your health care provider, which means more time to spend on other essential things.

When you pick up your first aligners, ensure they fit correctly. However, you may feel a little discomfort or pressure when wearing each new set of aligners for the first few days. This is normal, so you have nothing to worry about.

How to Wear Your Invisalign Aligners?

What’s included in your Invisalign treatment?

Step 1 – Smile scan

The first step is a visit to your Invisalign-trained doctor. Using our iTero Element® scanner., we will quickly capture an accurate 3D image of your teeth. This is a safe and hassle-free experience. We trust that you would love it.

Step 2 – See Your Future Smile

Once the 3D scan is complete, you will be able to see what your new smile will look like after the treatment.
