Your Invisalign treatment will begin with a Free iTero Scan. The scan shows you an instant 3D simulation of your predicted treatment results. You’ll also be able to discuss our prices and payment plans with an experienced member of our orthodontic team.
This will be followed by an assessment with Dr Anthony Lam or one of our other Specialist Orthodontists.
This is to take accurate measurements and x-rays of all of your teeth and jaws to confirm your clinical suitability for clear aligner treatment and for your tailored prescription to be written. The fee for this appointment is £150. This is fully refundable if you let us know you can’t make it within 24 hours.
Our specialist orthodontist will then make their recommendations and go through all of your treatment options. Afterwards, you will also have the opportunity to sit down again in a non-clinical environment to discuss the ins and outs of Invisalign, the treatment investment and go through a finance application if you require.

What’s an Invisalign ® ClinCheck?
Invisalign is not a one size fits all.
Dr Anthony Lam will design a precise treatment plan specifically for you. Invisalign then create a brilliant video that maps your entire Invisalign treatment journey. You can literally see your teeth move from your current position to the expected finished result.
We’ll know how many aligners you’ll need, how long it will take and what treatment extras you will require and at what stage of your treatment.
We welcome your input at this stage and our orthodontist will sit with you and confirm that you are happy with the treatment plan Invisalign has created for you. Only once you’re happy with how your treatment will proceed will we ask Invisalign to create your SmartTrack Aligners.
What are SmartTrack® Aligners?
When it comes to your smile, precision and predictability are crucial for a comfortable and efficient experience. Invisalign clear aligners are made of SmartTrack material, which provides greater than 75% improvement in overall tooth movement predictability.
Each aligner change is a small step towards your big transformation, moving your teeth comfortably and efficiently towards their final position
Check-ups and adjustments
All of your check-up appointments are included in the cost of your Invisalign treatment. After we’ve fitted your Invisalign aligners, we’ll see you approximately every 6 to 8 weeks to check that your treatment is tracking and to carry out the adjustments decided in your ClinCheck Treatment Plan.
And if your Orthodontist advises that you are suitable to change your aligners every week rather than every two weeks, you could achieve your new smile in as little as 3 months, that’s up to 50% faster than before!
Invisalign ® attachments and IPR
Invisalign attachments are tooth-coloured precision handles, which allow the SmartTrack aligners to lift, twist, pull and push your teeth with much finer detail than ever before.
We may need to fit these attachments from the very beginning or they may be added During Invisalign treatment. It’s a simple procedure and they’re polished off with easily and safely.
Most patients also need some interproximal reduction (IPR) before or during treatment, to ensure the best possible result. This involves removing very small amounts of enamel from in between your teeth with a polishing disc or strip, helping to create more space.
It’s a very safe and painless treatment not dissimilar to filing a nail.
We always hope that your treatment will be without a problem, but we understand that life happens! Lost aligners or attachments pinging off are the most common Invisalign Emergency.
If this happens don’t panic, give us a call and we’ll advise you whether you need to wear the next aligner or the previous one until we can get a replacement for you.
If an attachment has fallen off then call us. We’ll try and squeeze you in so that you can continue your treatment seamlessly at no extra cost.
Invisalign treatment would be nothing without your retainers, as almost all teeth will relapse if you do not wear them.
All of our treatment quotes include the cost of include clear, removable Essix retainers. (which look a lot like Invisalign aligners). For private patients, we also include added fixed retainers too. These are little wires that get fixed to the back your front 4 or 6 teeth for extra peace of mind.
You should wear retainers for as long as you wish to keep your smile straight.
What doesn’t Invisalign ® treatment costs include?
You’ll need to be ‘dentally fit’ before we can start any kind of orthodontic treatment. We would advise you have a checkup if you haven’t seen a general dentist in a while; which the cost of your Invisalign treatment does not include.
