Arrange your FREE Invisalign™ consultation today!

Invisible braces – the perfect choice for patients who want to keep their treatment to themselves.

Invisalign™ is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional braces, often chosen by those patients wanting to correct their smile without advertising the fact they’re doing so. The aligners are almost invisible, allowing you to achieve exceptional results with no obvious sign that you are receiving any form of treatment. Invisalign™ is fast-becoming the preferred choice of adult professionals. The system employs a series of custom-made, removable aligners to gradually improve the smile. Each aligner is worn for around two weeks, for approximately 20 and 22 hours a day, and they should only be removed for eating, brushing and contact sports.

Invisalign™ is as simple as it is discreet. Over a series of visits to our orthodontic practices in Aylesbury or Marlow, we will fit removable, nearly invisible braces to gently move your teeth into optimum position.

iTero is specifically designed to provide the best workflow with the Invisalign system. The Invisalign®️ Outcome Simulator chairside application is powered exclusively by iTero scanners to help patients visualize how their teeth may look at the end of Invisalign treatment.

Advantages of Invisalign®

If you’re considering orthodontic treatment but don’t like the thought of fixed braces, then clear aligners could prove the ideal solution. Our patients love the fact that they’re practically invisible, and because they are removable you’ll find it easy to brush and floss your teeth as normal throughout your treatment.

Disadvantages of Invisalign®

Because Invisalign is removable it can often be tempting to take your aligners out for increasing periods of time. However, your teeth will only move while you’re wearing your brace, so it’s really important to wear it for at least 20 hours every day. If you think this will prove difficult, you may be better suited to a fixed brace.

Invisalign Testimonial

Invisalign Full

Our foundation treatment option. Straightens teeth with a series of removable, virtually invisible aligners for a wide range of malocclusion cases.

Invisalign’s Full Braces

Invisalign’s “invisible braces” system uses removable clear aligner trays so you can discreetly straighten your teeth. Invisalign Full is the original system from Invisalign, designed only for Orthodontists, suitable for treating a wide range of teeth alignment problems from simple to complex malocclusions. The Invisalign Full is the only Invisalign product, which emulates most of the advantages or movements possible by Clear Fixed Appliance Systems.Treatment with Invisalign Full may take anywhere between 9 to 24 months. During this time, you’ll need to visit your Orthodontist every 4-8 weeks to check how your teeth respond and order your following sets of aligners.

Your Orthodontist may fit small attachments (G8 attachments) to some of your teeth as part of your treatment. These help the braces adjust your teeth faster and more efficiently. According to some people’s Invisalign reviews, the attachments are the most prominent part of the braces.

Not everyone is suitable for Invisalign treatment, but around 70% of orthodontic patients can benefit from this aligner system. Are you one of that 70%? Find out with Invisalign’s free Smile Assessment tool. It just takes two minutes to fill in some details about how your teeth look right now.

Here you can read about the benefits and drawbacks of Invisalign Full, including what to expect if you do choose this option. We’ll also look at how much Invisalign Full costs in the UK so you can decide whether it’s the correct type of brace for you or your teen.

How do Invisalign Full braces work?

Invisalign braces are entirely different to the traditional style of clear fixed braces, which use brackets. Instead, they use a series of clear plastic aligners and G8 attachments on the teeth to shift the teeth into the correct position gradually.

The Invisalign Full is the top of the range Invisalign, which has far greater control in moving the teeth in all three dimensions i.e Intrusion, Extrusion, Expansion, Distalisation, Tipping, Multidirectional movement of teeth simultaneously. Of course, the above movements can only be emulated by only well trained Specialist Orthodontist in terms of diagnosis, treatment planning, optimum biomechanics and experience with orthodontic fixed systems available.

Each aligner is carefully shaped to apply pressure to certain teeth as treatment progresses. Usually, you’ll need to switch to a new aligner every two weeks to keep your teeth moving into place.

Invisalign braces use state-of-the-art technology including mouth scanners and 3D printing to create an accurate treatment plan. Even before your treatment begins, you’ll be able to see a computer-generated image of how your teeth should look at the end. In fact, you can get an idea of what your new smile could look like right now, using Invisalign’s smart SmileView tool. Just click below and upload a selfie to see your results!

Benefits of using clear aligner braces

The most significant advantage for many Invisalign patients is that these braces are much more discreet than traditional metal braces. Most casual observers won’t notice you are wearing braces at all.

Invisalign braces are tough to notice. The aligners are also removable, useful for people who have a big event or meeting to attend. You may want to remove your braces for a minute while someone takes a photo. You can’t do that when you have metal brackets glued to your teeth!

Aligners still need to be kept in for 20-22 hours per day for successful treatment. They must be removed for cleaning, eating, and drinking anything except water. It’s simple to clean the trays with a toothbrush, and you’re free to brush and floss your teeth as you usually would.

Finally, many wearers find removable braces more comfortable than traditional braces. Metal wires and brackets tend to cause mouth sores, especially when they are first fitted. Periodic adjustments can also leave teeth sore for a few days.

Invisalign treatment is a suitable solution for 70% of orthodontic cases. However, keep in mind that another type of brace may be needed for:

  • Moving teeth vertically
  • Rotating teeth
  • Correcting severe malocculsions
  • Patients who lack the willpower to keep aligners in for the required 20-22 hours per day

Fortunately, there is an easy way to check whether Invisalign is right for you. Take your free Smile Assessment to find out in under two minutes if Invisalign braces could help improve your smile.

Here Is A Summary Of The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Invisalign Full To Straighten Your Smile:

AdvantagesDisadvantages
 Almost impossible to notice Requires willpower
 Comfortable, smooth surface Could be more expensive than traditional braces
 Removable – no eating restrictions May affect speech at first
 Works for 70% of cases Need to check your eligibility first
 No pain from tightening and adjustments
 Easy to clean teeth as normal

Other types of Invisalign braces

Invisalign has several other treatment systems to suit different types of patient. These include:

  • TeenSimilar to Full but with certain features to encourage teenagers to complete their treatment
  • Lite: For mild to moderate cases, this treatment takes about seven months
  • i7: Aimed at treating milder cases of misalignment, this system uses just seven aligners over the course of about three months

You should speak to your dentist to find out which type of invisible brace is best for you. And whichever type of brace you’re considering, you can use Invisalign’s SmileView tool right now to see what you’ll look like with straighter teeth.

How much does Invisalign Full cost in the UK?

The first thing to know if you’re in the UK is that Invisalign braces are not available on the NHS. Under-18s can often get metal braces on the NHS. So if you have chosen to have orthodontic treatment as an adult, you will almost certainly need to pay for it privately.

As with any private dental/orthodontic treatment, you’ll find varying prices for invisible braces wherever you look. As a rough guide, though, you’ll pay between £4000 and £6000 for Invisalign Full braces in the UK, with a Specialist Orthodontist. We are a Gold Invisalign Provider and competitively priced @ £3995 to £4995.

The cost quoted to you will depend on the complexity of your treatment, since more work means a longer treatment course and therefore more aligners.

We are certainly very competitively priced as a Specialist Orthodontist practice in this area, compared to other Specialist Orthodontists.

Conclusion

Invisalign Full is an excellent solution for adults who want straighter teeth without the ‘train tracks’ usually associated with braces. As long as you have the willpower to keep your aligners in, you’ll benefit from the convenience of being able to remove them to eat and brush your teeth.

Many adults are surprised to find that Invisalign costs are comparable to other orthodontic solutions. These braces can treat 70% of orthodontic cases, so why not check now to see if you’re eligible?

Invisalign Lite

Invisalign Lite is one of the treatments offered by Invisalign. It provides mild to moderate teeth straightening, meaning it costs a little less than the complete treatment. … Features of Invisalign Lite include: Almost invisible aligner trays which fit over the teeth. Aligners changed every two weeks.

The difference between the full Invisalign treatment and Invisalign Lite is the number of aligners (7-14 aligners) used to correct orthodontic conditions. … Treatment time for Invisalign Lite is approximately six and a half months, while full Invisalign treatment spans seven to twenty-four months.

Is Invisalign Lite cheaper?

Because it is a less involved treatment process than Invisalign Full, Invisalign Lite is generally less expensive and takes less time—approximately 4-6 months.

The i7 has been introduced as an Orthodontic tool for Specialist Orthodontist to match the pricing of Invisalign Go and Go Plus systems. Which is a much added value for money, for patients looking at correcting, very minor imperfections.

The functionality is enabled by our patented SmartTrack material and SmartForce features as the Invisalign Full & Lite, which provide more predictable tooth movement* and greater comfort for your patients.

The Invisalign Full is the only Invisalign product, which emulates most of the advantages or movements possible by Clear Fixed Appliance Systems. Treatment with Invisalign Full may take anywhere between 9 to 24 months. During this time, you’ll need to visit your Orthodontist every 4-8 weeks to check how your teeth respond and order your following sets of aligners.

Is Invisalign I7 Cheaper?

Invisalign i7 is cheaper than the Full Invisalign treatment and same as the Invisalign Go pricing, provided by the General Dentists. This is because there are fewer aligner trays and a shorter treatment time. Although it is less costly, you will still have the same access to pre-and-post-treatment perks.

Invisalign I7 Vs Invisalign Full

The main difference between Invisalign i7 and the full Invisalign programme is the length of treatment. Invisalign i7 is a shorter treatment programme suitable for minor imperfections and simple cases,  moves only the front six teeth. As compared to Invisalign Full is designed to emulate the movements produced by Clear Fixed Appliance system and move all the teeth and treat most malocclusions from simple to comples.

Invisalign i7 uses fewer as 7 aligners, so treatment time can be as short as 14 weeks. Invisalign i7 is designed to be completed with up to 7-14 aligners, so it wouldn’t be suitable for more complex cases.

The full Invisalign programme can use around 20 to 60 trays over 9-18 months. In more complex cases, as many as 50 aligners may be used. It’s a common misconception that Invisalign is only suitable for minor changes. With precision wings and attachments, Invisalign can tackle even the most complex cases.

Advantages Of Invisalign I7

The short treatment time can get results in just 4 months.
Suitable for simple cases such as misalignment and gaps.
Lower cost than the full Invisalign treatment plan.
Invisalign aligners are discreet and removable.
No need to give up your favourite foods.
Easy to care for teeth throughout treatment.

Disadvantages Of Invisalign I7

Not suitable for all cases.
Not available on the NHS.
Removable aligners are more likely to be misplaced.
There is the risk that the patient won’t wear them for 22 hours per day.
You will need to remove the aligners before eating or drinking.
Aligners need to be rinsed every time they are removed and washed twice per day.

Advantages Of Invisalign Full

Suitable for a most range of orthodontic corrections.
Can be incorporated with Restorative treatments.
Can remove the aligners to eat, drink and brush teeth.
Payment plans are available to help spread the cost.
Almost invisible aligners, so less self-consciousness.
Can easily enjoy your favourite foods throughout treatment.
Teeth are easier to care for than with traditional fixed braces.

Disadvantages Of Invisalign Full

Treatment can take up to 9 -18 months.
Not available on the NHS.
A lost aligner will need to be replaced, which could prolong treatment.
Need to remember to wear aligners for 22 hours per day.
Have to remove the aligners to eat and drink.
Need to rinse the aligners before replacing them and clean them twice a day.

Invisalign I7 Vs Invisalign Full: Which Is Better?

As you can see above, all Invisalign treatment plans have their pros and cons. But the choice between Invisalign i7 and Invisalign Full will nearly always come down to a clinical choice.

This means that some people won’t be candidates for Invisalign i7 or Invisalign Full. And in some cases, other orthodontic treatment options such as traditional fixed braces might be more suitable.

If you are prone to misplacing things or would struggle to wear your aligners for 22 hours per day, Invisalign might not be the right option for you.

Invisalign Go and Go Plus Systems

The Invisalign Go system is designed specifically for General Dentists to treat mild misalignment cases only on the front 6(Go) to 8(Go Plus) teeth. With its expanded treatment capability, the Invisalign Go system can be easily integrated into a wide range of restorative treatments in a general practice. But the Invisalign Full and Lite, are more comprehensive tools then the Go System to provide the best overall outcome to a restorative cases, which is important for long term stability for maintaining the long term outcome. Orthodontists can provide i7, which is equivalent to Invisalign Go.

The functionality is enabled by our patented SmartTrack material and SmartForce features as the Invisalign Full & Lite, which provide more predictable tooth movement* and greater comfort for your patients.

Another disadvantage is that it’s not suitable for everyone. Some types of tooth movement prove too much for aligners and in these cases we’d recommend clear braces or lingual braces as discreet alternatives.

At Belur Orthodontics we offer the original and much-loved Invisalign Full™ brace, as well as Invisalign™ Teen, Invisalign™ Lite and the newest member of the family, Invisalign™ i7 which is equivalent to Invisalign Go but provided by a Orthodontist.

Invisalign Go/Go Plus Vs Invisalign Full

The main difference between Invisalign Go/ Go Plus and the full Invisalign programme is the length of treatment. Invisalign Go is a shorter treatment programme suitable for minor imperfections and simple cases and moves front 6 to 8 teeth.

Invisalign Go uses fewer than 14 aligners so that treatment time can be as short as 28 weeks. Invisalign Go is designed to be completed with up to 14 aligners so that it wouldn’t be suitable for more complex cases.

The full Invisalign programme is designed to treat more moderate to complex cases and emulate the movements of clear fixed appliance system. It can use around 20 to 60 trays over 9-18 months. In more complex cases, as many as 90 aligners may be used. It’s a common misconception that Invisalign is only suitable for minor changes. With precision wings and attachments, Invisalign can tackle even the most complex cases.

Is Invisalign I7 Cheaper?

Invisalign i7 is cheaper than the standard Invisalign treatment and same as the Invisalign Go pricing, provided by the General Dentists. This is because there are fewer aligner trays and a shorter treatment time. Although it is less costly, you will still have the same access to pre-and-post-treatment perks.

This includes the Invisalign iTero scanner which allows you to see what your teeth could look like after treatment. We find that this visual guide helps keep patients on track with their treatment, as they know exactly what they can expect to achieve.

As you can see above, all Invisalign treatment plans have their pros and cons. But the choice between Invisalign Go/Go Plus and Invisalign Full will nearly always come down to a clinical choice, complexity of treatment, what the patient desired outcome and more importantly Clinicians ability to treat functionality of teeth, keeping aesthetics in mind.

If you are prone to misplacing things or would struggle to wear your aligners for 22 hours per day, Invisalign might not be the right option for you.

Disadvantages Of Invisalign Full

Treatment can take up to 9 -18 months.
Not available on the NHS.
A lost aligner will need to be replaced, which could prolong treatment.
Need to remember to wear aligners for 22 hours per day.
Have to remove the aligners to eat and drink.
Need to rinse the aligners before replacing them and clean them twice a day.

Alternatives to Invisalign

Another disadvantage of Invisalign, is that it’s not suitable for everyone. Some types of tooth movement prove too much for aligners and in these cases we’d recommend clear braces or lingual braces as discreet alternatives.

If you’re worried about the cost of Invisalign, there are other types of invisible brace available at lower prices. You can find details in our guide to Invisalign alternatives.

Another discreet way to straighten teeth is lingual braces

There may be other reasons why Invisalign isn’t right for you or your teen. Perhaps your teeth are too badly misaligned, or you’re worried that your child will be tempted to keep their braces out for too long.

Other types of inconspicuous braces include clear braces (with brackets made from a clear material) and lingual braces (hidden behind the teeth).

Whichever option suits you, we hope the Orthodontic information we provide helps you make a confident decision!

ITero Scanner

What is iTero?

iTero is specifically designed to provide the best workflow with the Invisalign system. The Invisalign® Outcome Simulator chairside application is powered exclusively by iTero scanners to help patients visualize how their teeth may look at the end of Invisalign treatment.

What is an iTero scanner used for?

The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once your orthodontist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.

How long does an iTero scan take?

Most iTero scans take 10-15 minutes to perform. Once they’re done, both professional and patient can spend as much time as they like going over the scan and visualizing both projected progress and the final expected end result.

How much do digital impressions cost?

Traditional impression materials require minimal initial costs, as the average conventional impression with stock tray costs between $18 and $35. Conversely, digital impression systems necessitate a substantial upfront investment, costing on average anywhere between £20,000 and £30,000.

Vivera Retainers

KEEP YOUR TEETH STRAIGHT FOR A LIFETIME

Invisalign’s custom-made aligners will straighten your teeth, Vivera’s custom-made retainers from Invisalign will keep them there.

Conclusion

After orthodontic treatment, it’s normal to wear retainers regardless of which teeth straightening treatment you may undergo. Retainers ensure that your orthodontic treatment doesn’t relapse.

There are many kinds of retainers available, and Vivera retainers from Invisalign are a popular option. They are manufactured using the latest technology, and with proper care, you can ensure they last a long time.

How Do Retainers Work?

Vivera retainers are custom-made just like Invisalign aligners are. They’re moulded to the shape of your teeth and are designed to keep your newly straightened teeth in position. Clear and discreet, just like Invisalign’s aligners are, you’ll need to wear them once your treatment has finished and until the gum tissue around your teeth has stabilised.

What Makes Vivera Retainers Different?

  • Vivera retainer material is at least 30% stronger and twice as durable as other leading clear retainer materials1
  • Your Vivera retainer is custom-fit for your smile, with your comfort in mind…which is important since you’ll wear it while you sleep
  • Doctors who have used Vivera retainers are more satisfied with Vivera retainers than with other retainers2

Benefits Of Invisalign Retainers

  • These retainers from Invisalign offer many benefits over other clear retainers:
    According to Invisalign, their retainers are 30% stronger than other retainers. This makes them more durable and better at keeping your teeth aligned.
    They are lab-tested to last longer than other retainers.
    They are smooth and comfortable, with little irritation to the lips and mouth. This is mainly due to 3D imaging technology that creates a perfect fit.
    These retainers from Invisalign can be reordered easily because your 3D imaging is digitally stored for future reference. No additional appointments for impressions and imaging are needed.
    They do not affect your speech.

How much do Vivera retainers cost?

Invisalign Vivera retainers cost slightly more than most clear retainers due to their durability. The cost of getting these retainers ranges from £400 to over £550 for three sets.

Here’s a quick overview of the various kinds of retainers you can choose from:

Type of RetainerApproximate CostPrimary Benefits
Vivera£400 – £550 for 3setsMade of long lasting materials, very durable, custom-fit
Hawley£130 – £230 per setVery affordable, more durable than Essix retainers, easy to clean, easy to order online
Essix£105- £200per setLast up to 5 years with proper maintenance, easy to take out of mouth while eating, clear and practically invisible
Permanent£239 each – £369 for a setVirtually invisible, impossible to lose, you don’t need to remember to put them in, last for several years

How to order Vivera retainers

The process for ordering a retainer after Invisalign or any other orthodontic braces is relatively straightforward:

  1. Tell your dentist that you want Vivera.
  2. Your orthodontist may need to take a scan of your teeth. The results of your scan will be stored in Invisalign’s database, so for future orders, you won’t need to get scans done again, unless your teeth have moved a lot.
  3. Post-appointment, you’ll pick up your retainers from your dentist.

How long do Vivera retainers last?

Three sets of Vivera retainers last about two and half years to three years with good care

Three sets of these last about three years with good care before you’ll need an Invisalign retainer replacement. They are meant to last longer than standard options.

That’s because they are made from tougher thermoplastic material and manufactured with the latest technology.

The thermoplastic material is 30% stronger than other leading retainers like Essix and Hawley retainers. With Vivera retainers you will rarely encounter cracking or breaking.

How To Clean Your Retainers

You can use mouthwash and lukewarm water to gently clean the retainers while rubbing with your fingers. Cleaning Viviera retainers with toothpaste and brush might be too harsh. The retainers are strong but not as hard as your tooth’s enamel. Toothpaste is usually too abrasive for cleaning retainers.

For more information on how to clean your retainers, you can use our Vitis Retainer Cleaning Tablets.

FAQs

How Do I Clean Vivera Retainers?

  • Rinse your retainer with warm water and soak in warm water mixed with mouthwash or a cleaner made for dentures. Don’t brush them with your toothbrush and toothpaste, as you might damage them. Also don’t wash them with hot water.

Will Vivera Retainers Fit In My Mouth?

All Vivera retainers are fitted to your exact smile. Your Orthodontist will scan or make an impression of your teeth for the perfect fit. Then your scans will be stored in Invisalign’s database. So if you need replacement retainers, you won’t need additional scans.

Where Can I Buy Vivera Retainers?

You can buy Vivera retainers through your Orthodontist. Many people opt for these Invisalign retainers after Invisalign orthodontic treatment, but you can also get a Vivera retainer even if you had regular braces.

How Long Should I Wear Vivera Retainers?

Just as with any post-orthodontic treatment with retainers, you’ll probably need to wear these retainers for the rest of your life. Usually, after a few months of wearing them, you’ll be able to switch over to nighttime wear only.

How Much Are Invisalign Retainers?

Invisalign retainers cost between £400 and £550 on average for three sets; however, you are getting four sets of top and bottom retainers made from long-lasting materials.

Retainers should normally be worn at night for the rest of your life.
