If you’re looking to straighten your smile discreetly and effectively with orthodontics in Fulham, Invisalign could be the perfect solution for you. It’s a treatment that has revolutionised traditional braces, and more patients are discovering its benefits every day.

But before you go ahead or even visit us for a consultation, you might have a few questions. Here are our answers to some of the questions that are frequently asked by our patients:

First of all, what is Invisalign?

When we hear the word ‘braces’, many of us think of traditional metal braces with brackets and wires - but with Invisalign in Fulham, these are nowhere to be found! Invisalign aligners are also an orthodontic treatment designed to straighten misaligned teeth, but they achieve this differently.

Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are made of ‘SmartTrack’ plastic, a medical-grade plastic that is proven to move teeth 50% faster and 75% more predictably than other treatment alternatives. The material creates subtle yet effective movements to achieve a flawless result.

What’s the treatment process?

The first step of your Invisalign journey will be your consultation. During this appointment at our state-of-the-art Fulham dentist, we will assess your teeth and gums to check if they’re healthy, and take some 3D scans of your mouth to identify the best course of action.

We will create a treatment plan based on these 3D scans and show you a simulation of what your smile could look like post-treatment to ensure you’re completely happy with the proposed outcome.

We will use the scans to create your custom-made Invisalign aligners. You will receive anywhere between 10 to 50 sets of aligners depending on the severity of your misalignment, all of which will be different sizes.

As you replace these around every two weeks, they will gradually move your teeth towards the projected final position. Your aligners must be worn for around 20-22 hours per day for maximum effectiveness, and we will review your progress every 8-10 weeks with you at the practice.

Once your treatment is complete, we will provide you with Invisalign Vivera retainers to ensure your teeth remain straight and don’t relapse to their original misaligned position! This is crucial for future-proofing your new smile.

What does Invisalign in Fulham cost?

The cost of Invisalign in Fulham may differ from practice to practice, but remember: you should never sacrifice the quality of your care because of cost! The skilled dentists at New Smile Fulham offer expert treatment with prices starting from as little as £1,495!

If you’re interested in Invisalign treatment but worried about the cost, we offer 0% interest finance to help you spread the cost over several months. The exact details of this will differ depending on your treatment - please speak to our friendly team for more information.

What are the benefits?

Invisalign aligners are almost invisible, making them an extremely discreet alternative to metal braces. The SmartTrack plastic is comfortable, and you can remove the aligners to eat, drink, floss, and brush.

Treatment times are often much less than with traditional braces, meaning you’ll likely spend less time visiting the dentist to monitor your treatment!

What age do I need to be to receive treatment?

We offer Invisalign in Fulham for adult and teenage patients alike. The discreet plastic aligners are often perfect for teenagers who may be self-conscious about their smiles and don’t want people at school to know they’re wearing braces.

They’re also a discreet option for adults who may feel embarrassed about having orthodontic treatment or don’t want unsightly braces to impact their life whilst straightening their smile.
