Advice: Smile Guide for Parents
Invisalign uses custom-made transparent aligners, which gradually realign the teeth into the correct position faster than conventional, fixed metal braces.
The treatment involves wearing a series of clear and removable aligners, which will need to be swapped out over time so that your teeth continue to move gradually into the desired position.
These custom series of aligners will straighten teeth comfortably and gradually over a few months – depending on the severity of your misalignment or bite issue.
How effective is Invisalign?
“The Invisalign system is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Backed by two decades of innovation, the Invisalign system has helped bring smiles to over 10.2 million people including over 2.6 million teens.” – Align Tech
- Invisalign is more robust and more successful than any other clear aligner on the market.
- Since 2010 the force of the aligners have advanced
- It has straightened millions of smiles worldwide
Invisalign was designed not to interrupt daily life, and the fact that the aligners are removable means that wearers can reap a tonne of benefits.
However, it’s essential to be aware that this is a realignment procedure and should be taken seriously.
We have found that those who have found themselves unhappy with the clear aligners have not completed the treatment properly or have not worn the aligners for the allotted amount of time.
Invisalign aligners will need to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day. Otherwise, patients may be disappointed as their expectations of a straighter smile are not met.
What can negatively impact your treatment
- Not wearing your aligners as much as you should
- Cleaning your aligners with hot water
- Removing your aligners for anything other than eating, drinking, brushing or flossing
- Not cleaning your teeth or aligners after eating or drinking
The Invisalign process is simple. Completed in just three steps, the wearer has more freedom to carry out their treatment.
- Meet with your Invisalign Doctor: First, the orthodontist will use the iTero scanner to take a precise and fast 3D digital scan, which will allow them to put together a bespoke treatment plan, which will plan out your treatment over the next coming months. The treatment plan will highlight each step of the procedure, where you will precisely see your teeth’ movement.
- Transform your smile: Start wearing your aligners! As the clear aligners are designed to apply the right amount of force at the right time, you will be required to revisit the dentist to monitor your progress and pick up your new set of aligners.
- Show off the results: To complete your treatment, you will be required to wear retainers in the evening, much more robust than normal ones. This means your treatment will be more effective, and you will not have to wear a retainer as long as you would with conventional systems.
“The perfect smile made my teeth look amazing. Sam & Sophie were so kind throughout & I feel so happy with the result! I had about a year’s worth of Invisalign braces, whitening & contouring on my teeth. I feel much more confident with my smile now, thank you all x” Patient in Hertfordshire.
“I have just finished a seven month Invisalign treatment plan with Sam Jethwa at the Perfect Smile Studios and have been so happy with the results and the whole process. Sam and the team have been great from the beginning, very encouraging and have explained everything every step of the way! I’d definitely recommend Perfect Smile Studios to anyone planning on cosmetic dentistry – I’ll soon be getting my teeth whitened there too and can’t wait!” – Patient in London.
Invisalign timeline: Duration and treatment lengths
Many factors can affect how long your treatment can take with Invisalign.
It all depends on your case and the current alignment position.
During your initial consultation, these types of questions will be quickly answered by the dentist, who, after assessing your mouth, will be able to give you a more accurate timeline.
On average, the treatment can take anywhere from 3 to 18 months – though you certainly will begin to notice results just weeks in.
When do the aligners need to be changed?
This will all be according to your treatment plan, your new set of aligners, on average, can be changed weekly or every other week.
Invisalign before and after cases
A better alternative to other braces and systems
Invisalign is often the first choice for many as it allows patients to straighten their teeth without brackets, wires or tracks.
Reported by our patients to be comfortable and near-invisible, they offer patients the chance to carry out their alignment procedure in private and at home.
Its discreet properties mean that friends and colleagues will not be able to notice them easily when you speak, smile or laugh.
Taking three months to complete, Invisalign allows the patient more freedom and fewer restrictions.
Invisalign clear aligners can treat almost all typical tooth alignment issues and malocclusions from overbites to overcrowding.
We meet many patients who have formerly had braces, who choose the discreet option to improve their smiles now that their teeth have shifted or relapsed back into misalignment.
Whether it’s simple or severe correction solutions, Invisalign can help, and so can we!

For the best results, you will be required to wear your aligners for 22 hours each day. They can be removed to eat, drink, floss and brush.
What should I do if I lose an aligner?
You will be provided with spares in case this happens! However, if you have lost your spare you should get in touch with us immediately so we can organise for a new one to be sent to you.
