Invisalign Liverpool | Clear, removable & Invisible braces

Invisalign® liverpool

Invisalign® at Smileworks

When you visit Smileworks for your braces assessment you’ll surely hear all about the clear, removable braces made by Invisalign®.  If you want straight teeth but the idea of metal brackets leaves you cold then clear braces might be the treatment for you.  Patients who don’t want a mouth full of metal or want the flexibility to be able to remove their braces when they eat will benefit from removable braces.  But Invisalign® aren’t just removable.  When you’re actually wearing them they are also almost completely invisible.

 

 

This is because they are made from a clear material that is very discreet.  Invisalign® is popular with patients who want the benefits of a beautiful smile without the inconvenience of metal or ceramic brackets in their mouths.  This article, ‘Invisalign Liverpool’ is all about Invisalign®.  But Invisalign isn’t the only braces treatment we offer here at Smileworks.  To read generally about our different fixed, removable and specialist treatments take a look at our main braces page, Braces Liverpool.

 

 

There are also other clear braces options including white or clear fixed brackets.  These are available with Fastbraces® and other traditional orthodontic systems that we use here at Smileworks.

 

This is the difference between Invisalign® and clear braces.

What are Invisible braces?

Invisalign braces are clear retainers made from a technologically advanced material known as SmartTrack.  When you start Invisalign treatment you get a number of slightly different numbered retainers to wear.  The retainers work by moving your teeth a small amount by putting precision forces on them.  Once your teeth have moved into position you put the next one on and the process starts again.  Although the changes are only small they are precision engineered to move your teeth over time into the correct position determined by your Specialist Orthodontist.

 

 

In this case that’s our very own Laurence Masters.  Invisalign are alive with wonderful technology and your treatment incorporates cutting edge 3D digital dentistry, 3D printing and advanced materials science.  This and the fact that your braces are not only clear but removable is what makes Invisalign® one of the world’s most popular orthodontic treatments for patients who want invisible braces.  Patients will get a personalised ‘clin check’ which is a digital estimate of how your teeth will move over time that you can watch on screen.  This allows you predictability and peace of mind.

 

How Invisalign® Works

Take a look at the video below to learn more about clear retainers and how they move the teeth:

 

 

 

Invisalign® vs fixed braces

Fixed braces are great.  They are great for serious orthodontic cases where there is lots of moving to be done.  Metal brackets are bonded to the teeth and connected by wires.  There is simply no better way to move teeth than this method and for this reason, metal brackets are wonderful.   Patients (typically adult braces patients) complain that fixed metal brackets make them feel self-conscious.  This can be more of a problem for some than others and is purely up to each patient.

 

 

Some people actually like having their braces on and enjoy the different colours, styles and fun you can have with fixed braces.  Other patients just want nobody to know they are wearing braces or their job or lifestyle makes fixed braces not an option.  You can get clear or ceramic brackets and clear wire for your fixed braces but this makes them slightly less conspicuous rather than invisible.

 

Easily the best dentist appointment I've had. I was recommended to go by a friend who couldn't have spoken more highly of them. The facilities are top notch, service friendly and comforting. The staff were great. The treatment was thorough, honest and well explained. First class (excuse the airline pun...you'll see why!)

I found Smileworks after looking online for the best specialist orthodontist, and after several visits now, I do believe that they live up to the hype! Every visit has been a pleasure, with the excellent reception always offering a warm and hearty welcome. Due to the severity of problems with my teeth, my treatment plan is extensive and means that despite being early days, I have met with and been treated by a range of the staff here; I can confirm that they're all fantastic and incredibly thorough - everything is explained in detail and nothing is ever rushed. I should also thank Paula (and her assistant whose name I've forgotten - sorry!) yesterday for cleaning the insides of my teeth so thoroughly when I don't even think it was necessarily part of the appointment (the appointment was for a filling). I look forward to continued excellent care from Smileworks and can't wait to get my braces on! Cheers guys!

Absolutely great find. Friendly staff and MJ who treated me was professional, reassuring and positively fantastic about what my needs were and what I was looking for. There was no pressure on anything and she spoke in depth about full details on every procedure without any rush in me in making an option. I will definitely be visiting again. Thank you once again!

Absolutely excellent service. All the staff are friendly and make sure all your treatment options are fully explained. Don't do anything unless your 100% sure of all that's available. Shiron made sure my treatment was the absolute best it could be.

I had dental work and a procedure on my top lip. I was really nervous on my first visit but the staff are truly lovely and put me at ease straight away. I loved the quirkiness of the waiting room- very different from any dentist/doctors waiting room I've been in. The treatment rooms are very clean, love the design and layout. I also loved the patients photo smiles on the wall!! straight away I relaxed and I could feel the friendliness of the staff. MJ really listened to my fears and listened to what I required, she understood completely my views and the treatment I received was given exactly as I requested!! They really want to help you and they're interested in what you have to say - they love their job!!! I've made a follow up visit and will continue to use them. I've also recommended Smileworks to my friends and will continue to do so.

I went to Smileworks to have the composite reconstructions on my two front teeth replaced as well as my teeth whitened. On my first appointment with M.J I was given detailed explanations of what these processes involved, which not only eased my apprehensions but stood out from all the previous dentists I had visited. The teeth whitening took approximately two weeks, after which I had the most amazing reconstruction done on my front teeth by Dr Billal Arshad, including a flawless colour match to my newly whitened teeth. The treatment I received was incredible and the end results speak for themselves, I have had numerous people within the fist week comment on how incredible my teeth look. To all the staff at Smileworks I say thank you so much, you have made me a very happy customer.

The staff at Smileworks are fantastic, very welcoming and accommodating. They are always happy to go the extra mile to help you. I had fast braces and 1ml lip filler, i absolutely love the result. Would 100% recommend to anyone looking to get braces or facial aesthetics, they really listen to what you want and combined with their professional knowledge you achieve the perfect result.

I received my Spmu eyeliner treatment today at Smileworks. I am completely over the moon with the results and would highly recommend the treatment. The clinic itself it just wonderful really clean, fresh and highly professional. My therapist was Hannah Taffe who was extremely knowledgeable, but also so warm and welcoming and put me completely at ease. The treatment was really relaxing and didn't hurt one bit. So very impressed and will certainly be back. Next time I will be booking in to see an orthodontist. Huge thanks to Hannah you really are just fabulous. Sarah Bell xx

The most welcoming and friendly staff I have ever experienced anywhere, let alone a dentist. I felt in safe hands from the get-go and was so happy with the staff arranging appointments for me even outside of the practice. The creative and clever practice design (airplane) topped the fun experience off! Thanks MJ, Georgiana and Heloise.

I did went Saturday morning as an emergency customer. No previous contact with them in the past. I was extremely happy of what I found. The place itself & location is great. But even better the staff; They were very understanding and helpful. MJ who finally attend my case did work the extra mile (and extra time too :)) so later than 17:30 Sat. Quick/Nice/Effective & Reliable. So far the best dental clinic I have been. Definitively I will recommend & use them again.

After breaking a tooth whilst away in Liverpool, I googled local dentist and called the first number in the list. Smileworks offered me an A1 service and managed to temporary fix my tooth until I returned home allowing me to continue my few days away. Not only was the cost very reasonable for an emergency appointment their practice is the funkiest I’ve ever seen. The dental staff were all fantastic too, I couldn’t have asked for more. Just gutted that there isn’t a smileworks in Cambridgeshire!

If you're looking for the best place for your treatment, you've got to choose and visit smile works. They make you feel beautiful, their all friendly and talented personnel. Their welcoming smile alone will make you feel at ease that you're in the right place for your treatment. Their smile really works.

team I'd like to provide you with some feedback on my treatment to date: After 1:1 advice and guidance with the smile-works team, I recently attended for my first treatment (root canal). I was greated and treated professionally throughout, experienced no pain, and was informed and entertained by MJ, whom I found to be extremely reassuring, competent and also hilariously funny. Withought hesitation I can fully recommend this practice, and I am so excited about completing my planned course of treatment, which is bespoke and excellent value for money, just in time for Christmas ! Kindest regards Dave Sent from my i

Wow what an absolute amazing experience said no person ever going to the dentist. Well until now... Had severe pain due to a Wisdom tooth and couldn't sleep the night before and knew I had to finally face my fear and go to the dentist and get this sorted. Sat up all night due to lack of sleep watching and reading horror stories on having a Wisdom tooth removed and was dreading it more and more as time went on. Called Smileworks at 9am Saturday morning to get an emergency appointment and was given one within 3 hours. When i arrived I was greeted with cheer into what could only be described as the coolest dental reception area of all time. The receptionist (forget her name) automatically put my mind at ease. Normally my experience at dentists was sit and wait for an absolute age to be called. Not at Smileworks. MJ came into the reception area so cheery and got me and brought me to the room which was something out of a futuristic movie it was absolutely amazing. From start to finish MJ kept my mind at ease telling me every step of the way on what was happening and what the plan of action was. We even meditated over the removal of my wisdom tooth which really calmed me down. MJ was absolutely amazing in the removal and I had built up such a hype and horror pictures of what was going to happen. The exact opposite happened. This had made me build up my confidence in a dentist again and I would highly highly highly recommend Smileworks to anyone.

I arrived at Smileworks just as they were closing early for the Christmas break. When I explained my situation (needed emergency treatment) & was going on holiday on Boxing Day MJ agreed to sort out my tooth. She was so friendly & I didn't feel like I was putting her out at all. One of the girls who had her coat on to go home even offered to stay to help. Within 20 minutes I was sorted out & could get on with my Christmas shopping!!! Thank you MJ & the nice dental nurse I now know I go away without having to worry about my tooth. 👍

I felt so welcome and comfortable here! I admire Dr MJ very much, because I did root treatment, which I thought was painful and complex. But it only took 1 hour and I did not feel a little pain. I trust them so much that I feel sleepy! And the reception girls are energetic and full of smiles. This is a wonderful place to make your smile beautiful and confident!

Smileworks are by far the best dentist I’ve been too!! So friendly and welcoming, the waiting area is fun, the receptionist are very helpful and informative, the dentists are highly skilled and make you feel comfortable and are very reassuring. I have had metal braces before when I was younger and feared getting them again but I am happy I went with Smileworks MJ and Bambi who have both been my dentist are fab as well as each assistant that supports them. I actually enjoy going each month and finding out what stage I am at and what’s to come next I never feel anxious. I’ve actually referred two people here, worth every penny 🙂

I’ve been going to Smileworks for all my treatments since it first opened and I have not and will not go anywhere else. Everyone is always commenting on how good my lips look, my skin. My teeth are straight after only 3 months of a brace. Everyone there is so friendly and everything is explained throughly. The surgery is so clean and modern and MJ is the most qualified person out there for anything you need. I shall be continuing to go there for the rest of my time. Amazing. Love all the team at Smileworks 💕

Called and obtained next day appointment. Clear instructions on how to find the surgery. Very thorough examination. X-rays and dental photos fully explained. Options for further treatment discussed. Follow up appointment arranged to check burn on my palate roof of which I was unaware and make sure nothing more serious. Dental hygiene scale and polish carried out and very pleased with outcome. Excellent service from Rebecca and Lucy. Recommended A+++++

A very welcoming, warm, friendly and professional atmosphere. I Felt very relaxed and at ease whilst I had my treatment which was a 1ml of lip filler. MJ was very informative and listened to what I wanted and personalised my treatment. I am super happy with the results and could not have asked for a better practitioner whilst receiving this procedure. Fantastic company and would highly recommend anyone to go here!

I've recommended Smileworks to a few people now, as I've had nothing but good experiences within the past 6 months. I decided to get my braces fitted here because I thought, with all the good reviews, I couldn't go wrong. I'm so glad I braved it because the results, only 5 months into the treatment, are amazing!!! MJ and Georgi are absolutely lovely. They're so friendly, and really just make you feel so comfortable there, which is a massive plus for nervous patients, as I was to begin with. The waiting area and reception is so fun. It makes a really nice change to what you usually see in a dentists waiting room. So, if you're thinking about going to Smileworks, do it! They're fantastic 😀

I needed an emergency appt & got one quickly. I needed a tooth extraction - I had an excellent (female) dentist who gave a really good local (enough & I could still feel my face!). The extraction was tough but I was well cared for. I've not had any problems at all since and I had it taken out 4 days ago. Thank you.

I had the best first appointment. I had to change dentists because the last one was simply not fixing my issues. I was very hesitant to try a new dentist but I am glad I did. The staff are very polite and attentive. Dentist office itself is exceptionally clean. After my check up everything was explained well. Very good experience .

I was initially nervous and apprehensive. I hadn't visited this practice before but I had done my homework and went here on recommendation. I booked with MJ and went to have some work done with my upper lip & facial aesthetics. She put me at ease completely and I was expecting pain. It was so easy, straightforward, and I will definitely go back. I was a little tender the day after, but there was no discomfort on the day of treatment and it was much easier than having a dental filling 🙂 My result has been fabulous and I am very happy and would certainly recommend.

A superb experience! From the initial call to the reception team through to the treatment and after-care level of service, my expectations were exceeded in every aspect. This is a very smart, clean, modern and friendly dental clinic with customers at the heart of service. The team of professionals take time to understand the issue, explain possible causes, possible treatments and put you at your ease. This was a first-class experience and although I don't live near here, I am considering switching from my regular dentist to Smileworks Liverpool. Oh and for aviation geeks, the clinic has an airline theme which is refreshingly different to the traditional style of dental surgeries.

I chose Smileworks for my braces and could not be happier with my decision and have been recommending them ever since! There is always a friendly atmosphere at Smileworks and I’m always talked through what will be happening during my appointment. The late opening hours are perfect for fitting in around work and I have never had to wait longer than my given appointment time on every visit so far. In just 5 months Smileworks have managed to drastically straighten my teeth which I didn’t even think was possible after expecting a minimum of 1 year treatment!

Honestly the best customer service I have ever received. The receptionist is so friendly and helpful and the staff who looked at my teeth were very professional, always making sure that I was okay throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and they made sure that I left with full knowledge of what my teeth whitening procedure was going to be and answered all questions! Will definitely be recommending to friends and I cant wait to come back for my next appointment!

I would recommend this place to anyone wanting dental treatment and I would definitely return.

Excellent treatment performed by professional dentists. I did NOT feel the dentist's hands when digging the tooth that caused a strong pain. I did NOT feel at all what happened:) smile and thanks a lot after 30 min of treatment. A narrative: The clinic gave me a fast track consultation as an emergency appointment when I call them in the early morning because of sudden and increasing pain over night after passing another clinic in a day before. Recent equipments of x-ray 4k that can take images of teeth and identity problems before handelling any treatment clearly after 5 min. The clinic is on high standards. It is highly appreciated and highly recommended. Thanks a lot.

The customer service at this dental practice is some of the best I have experienced in any organisation period. All staff are a credit to themselves and their employer. Friendly, bubbly, knowledgable and considerate. The treatment was top class, the facilities brilliant and the location very central and convenient. I don't often bother to leave reviews on Google, but I think it's worth the effort this time. Well done to all at Smileworks - outstanding.

Amazing customer care and advice and treatment for removal of a very painful wisdom tooth. NHS removal via my own dentist was going to be 6-8weeks waiting time. Smileworks were very understanding and arranged emergency appointment and then an extraction within a few days. There were no complications and the whole experience was first class. Everything was explained and there were excellent follow up calls to check I was Ok and no issues. So glad not to be taking anymore pain relief. Am considering switching my dentist!

Amazing! In order to get braces I have done a comprehensive research and booked initial appointments in several places in Liverpool. I have found out that in many of them I wouldn’t be treated by an orthodontist, but by a person who only has a certificate (and is lacking the knowledge and experience that an orthodontist has), and in some places there was a weird, cold, "we don't really care" attitude, plus I would only see a dental nurse. Smileworks keeps it's standards high, will always welcome you like an old friend, with smiles and care! Laurence, the orthodontist, very nice and very professional guy, investigated my case, went through a treatment plan with me, and I left happy, knowing I found my place and that I can trust them. My first appointment with Smileworks was 10 months ago, and since then I enjoy every visit, every conversation, every appt follow up, everything about this place! Great energy, great people and great results. It’s a no brainer, I can’t recommend it enough! Thank you for creating such an amazing experience for your customers!

The best money well spent, my appointment was with Zoe. I felt welcomed, I was thoroughly advised on my options and what to expect. Very honest about the pros and cons regarding the treatment. I had one tooth pulled out and I felt nothing bearing in mind that this "thing" was "rotten" but "clinging for dear life", yet I felt nothing. Zoe made me roar with laughter with the conversations she was having with me and her colleague, whilst playing "tug of war" with the tooth. Errors made by my previous dentist Zoe corrected and I am well pleased. Very sterile, good looking business. Thankyou

I unfortunately lost a tooth a few years ago due to a nasty abscess that too many root canal treatments could not cure. I decided at the beginning of the year that it was time to fix my smile and went for a consultation for a dental implant. I visited a couple of dental practices and decided on smileworks due to the friendliness of staff and their ability to answer all of my questions and put my mind at ease. Plus an added benefit was that they offered credit to help finance the treatment. I could not be more happy with my decision and my results. I have a perfect smile once more and dealing with the team was an absolute pleasure! I cannot recommend their services highly enough.

Went to smileworks to have my eyebrows done by Hannah! From the moment you walk in everyone is super friendly and Hannah greets you like an old friend! This was my second visit as it was a top up! My eyebrows are really not easy as they pretty much non existent and what was there was super wonky! Hannah was amazing! She was so patient and spent a ridiculously long time making sure I went home happy! Would 100% recommend to everyone!! X

I went to smileworks last week for a new retainer. The service I received was great, from meeting the receptionists to when I was receiving treatment from Paula and the dental nurse. Everyone was very smiley, friendly and helpful. Paula especially took the time to explain whitening treatments to me (as I mentioned I would like whiter teeth on my patient details form) and also explained treatments such as composite bonding which could help me achieve the perfect smile I was looking for. The dental nurse helping was also very calming and patient. I would definitely recommend to others and would really like to compliment their great customer service. Thanks smileworks and all their lovely staff.

Had bad experiences with other dentists. Went to smileworks. I could not have been treated better. The staff are amazing and my dentist Susan is fantastic. She put me completely at ease. I've never said this before but I now enjoy going to see her and get work done on my teeth. Would highly recommend smileworks

Had my first appointment today with Paula and Jess. It was very nice, friendly and professional! I was talked through a plan for future treatments that I wanted and given a price estimate, so helpful! Appointment was also 2 days after I phoned them, so seen very quickly!

I feel 5 star is not enough and those guys deserve an infinite number of stars and a unicorn on top of that! I have a severe phobia if it comes to my teeth, I'm a survivor of Polish public dentist care and let me tell you that's something straight from nightmares and torture chambers. As a results my teeth are not in a great way (those that did survive), to add to the "fun" I also have major orthodontic issues. I knew I needed help and it took me about a year and a half (this is not an exaggeration) to make my way to Smileworks. In the meantime I tried two other 5-star rated places and I wasn't convinced enough to stick around. The second I called Smileworks I had a warm fuzzy feeling in my belly that this place is the right place finally, It took a few months and multiple appointment before the right treatment plan could be created, since my case is complicated to say the least. I feel that there was a LOT of thoughts put into finding a solution, which made me feel at ease and gain enough trust to go ahead with the treatment. Every time I come to visit everyone is just brilliant. All the ladies and gents are nice and bubbly, which definitely helps to relax. Their approach is very gentle, a lot of attention is given to the patients and you just get the feeling that this guys really know what they do. I feel spoiled and I stopped fearing every dentist visit as I used to in the past. I know it sounds odd, but if anyone is able to make dentist appointments as pleasurable as possible, that's the people at Smileworks! As to address the money, things like that cost a lot, that's the unfortunate reality and there's no way to avoid that. For what I've been offered i think that's worth every penny. If it comes to the plane theme, I think it's amazing and I absolutely love it, especially because of all the little details. Finally a place with a sense of humor! I get how people scared of dentist AND flying can find it disturbing, but I think that's just an edge case. I will preach the genius of this place forever and share it with anyone who is eager to listen (or is not eager to listen at all but just haven't ran fast enough from me).

For many patients this is not enough and it involves extra investment from you because ceramic brackets are more expensive than metal ones.  Then there’s the food issue.  When patients wear fixed braces they can trap food and require more cleaning and looking after than clear retainers.  Many patients dislike eating with metal braces on and the fact that you can remove Invisalign® is a huge benefit.  Here at Smileworks we have had Invisalign® patients who are actors, lawyers or even people who don’t want their family to know they have braces on! But your reason for wanting a discreet option for your braces is up to you.  The majority of patients just don’t like the sound of braces – so Invisalign® is the obvious choice for them.

 

 

Is Invisalign® right for me?

 

Invisalign® can correct a whole host of orthodontic contraindications.  Here are some examples of the problems Invisalign® can fix.

 

 

Underbite

 

An underbite can also be described as a reverse overjet and is where the lower front teeth (or jaw) protrudes relative to the upper front teeth or jaw. If you’d like to learn more about whether you have an overjet then read our article here about the Overjet.

This is where the bottom teeth overlap the top

If you’d like to learn more about the overbite and how this common malocclusion is caused then read our main article here: Overbite.

Overly crowded

overcrowded teeth
Where the teeth do not have enough space in the jaw and appear crooked

 

 

Crossbite

braces for crossbte
Where the lower teeth bite outside the upper teeth.

 

 

Gappy Smile

Where there is a tooth sized discrepancy because the teeth might be too small for the jaw

 

You can read in-depth articles about the above if you’d like a really deep understanding from our dentists and specialist orthodontists about these various dental classifications:

 

Overjet  |  Overbite  |  Overcrowded Teeth

 

 

It’s very important that your Invisalign® is carried out by an experienced Invisalign® provider.  You should be able to find your Invisalign® provider on the ‘Doc Locator’ on the Invisalign® website.  Here’s our very own Dr Laurence Masters on the Invisalign® website with details of his cases, experience and Smileworks contact details.  Dr Laurence is a specialist orthodontist and we wouldn’t recommend having your Invisalign® treatment with a general dentist as the knowledge and results that a specialist can achieve are truly exceptional.  Invisalign treatment takes a little longer than conventional braces as the tooth movements are gradual.  You’ll expect to be in treatment for around 18 months to 2 years compared with some much faster treatments that can be completed in 6-9 months.

 

Patients who want the particular benefits of Invisalign will usually not mind that they are in treatment for slightly longer.  It’s very important that you wear your retainers though.  One of the downsides to Invisalign® is that patients who don’t wear them can be in treatment for much longer.  Your cosmetic dentist will advise precisely how long your clear braces treatment will take so you will have a good idea of the timescales.

 

 

What does the system look like?

 

The Invisalign® system is basically a number of clear plastic retainers.  Similar to whitening trays that you might get for your whitening procedures.  They are all slightly different but the differences between them won’t be visible to the untrained eye.

What does Invisalign cost?

 

We have a dedicated article comparing the prices of all our invisible braces systems.  You can read it here: Invisalign Cost.

 

 

The cost of Invisalign is determined by the severity of your case.  You’ll need to come along for a consultation where Dr Laurence will be able to measure the severity of your problems.  So when patients ask the question, ‘how much does Invisalign cost’, we will typically tell them ‘it depends’.  This can be frustrating.  however,  there’s no way of telling with precision until you’re seen by the orthodontist.  The cost of Invisible braces at Smileworks starts from £3,000 – but can be closer to £4,500 for highly complex cases.  This is a little more than some of our other braces systems but the technology and advanced systems involved cost more.

 

 

One example of this technology is the ‘clincheck’.  This is where cad/cam images of your mouth are taken and sent to the Invisalign® laboratories.  They feed this information into a computer that models precisely how your teeth will move in an animation over time.  This also involves a smile assessment and precise details of the time and movement that you will experience.  The computerised models are also used to 3D print your clear retainers.  This process is cutting edge – and reflected in the Invisalign prices.

 

 

Here at Smileworks we see no point in giving people beautiful straight teeth if they might not be as white as our patients like.  So we give you plenty of Enlighten Whitening to create a straight and white smile.  You put the enlighten gel directly in your Invisalign retainers.  The cost of Enlighten whitening is usually £350 but is a complementary gift from all of us here for our beautiful Invisalign® patients.

 

 

Is Invisalign® safe?

Invisalign is extremely safe.  It has been used in almost every country in the world on millions of adults and teens since the 90’s.  The retainers may feel tight at times (especially if you forget to wear them) but the discomfort is short lived.  Patients rarely complain of pain or discomfort with removable retainers.  One main reason for this is that you can take them out if they cause you discomfort.  Metal fixed braces are more uncomfortable than removable retainers or clear braces generally.

 

 

The procedure from start to finish

Firstly you’ll need to make an appointment at Smileworks for a braces assessment.  The best way to do this is call us on 0151 236 5166 .  When you come in your orthodontist, Dr Laurence Masters will assess your case.  He then presents you with a treatment plan outlining the price and a rough estimate of costs to within £500.  Then we take impressions or moulds of your teeth and send them to Invisalign® to be scanned into their software programs.  They then send back your clincheck and you’ll be able to watch it on the screen at your first second appointment.  Your retainers will arrive shortly after and you can begin your treatment.

 

 

You’ll have your progress reviewed every few weeks by your orthodontist to make sure that things are going to plan.  Then when your teeth have moved into the position we want you’ll get your whitening gels and be able to start whitening.  Here at Smileworks we love braces and we love Invisalign®.  Here at Smileworks we’re also not a one-trick pony.  Your braces will determined by what’s the best system for you so that you can start living a life of confidence, happiness and success with your beautiful new smile.
