What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the brand name of a type of thin clear aligner used in orthodontic treatment. The aligner is made from a flexible thermoplastic material named SmartTrack.
From simple fixes to the most complex of cases, Invisalign clear aligners can help. Make an appointment with one of our a specially trained Invisalign Doctors. They’ll carry out an assessment and discuss your treatment options with you. See if Invisalign Treatment could be right for you.
Why choose Invisalign?

- Healthy – removing the aligners allows for normal brushing, so it’s easier to maintain oral health during treatment.
- Comfortable – no metal brackets or wires to irritate your gums oryour mouth.
- Confidence – no highly visible metal brackets means you’ll smile more – you’ll feel more relaxed and less stressed during treatment.
The Invisalign Journey
Six steps to a new smile
Start by booking an Invisalign Consultation with one of our Invisalign providers here at the Highgate Dental Practice. Your Invisalign provider will confirm that you are eligible for treatment.
Your Invisalign doctor will take fast and precise 3D digital scans of your teeth using the state-of-the-art iTero element scanner and will work with you to map out a custom treatment plan that you are happy with.
We’ll use your digital scan to map out the proposed movement of your teeth. You will see an animation of both your expected month-to-month progress and the final results of how we expect your smile will be.
Once we receive your first aligners from the Invisalign lab, we’ll fit them for you and make sure they are comfortable. Small clear attachments may be fixed to your teeth speed up your progress.
Wear Your Aligners
After being custom made and shipped to our office you will receive a series of aligners to wear every day and to change at home-on average every 1-2 weeks. You will visit us every 6-8 weeks to monitor the progress and to receive new aligners.
Your New Smile is Complete
After you finish your last set of aligners, your beautiful new smile will be complete. Retainers should be worn after your treatment is finished to keep your teeth straight and in place.
Why is Invisalign treatment different?
- Only Invisalign uses SmartTrack material which controls tooth movement with precision, comfort and predictability.
- Say goodbye to old-fashioned, messy dental putty impressions. We use our cutting-edge iTero scanner to create a 3D digital image of your teeth that you can see in real time and with no need for X-rays or biting into dental impression trays.
- Custom-made aligners are made using state-of- the-art 3D printing technology, moving your teeth gently and efficiently.
- ClinCheck technology technologically maps your entire Invisalign Journey so you can see what your new smile will look like even before the journey begins.
Watch video all about Invisalign
We have been treating pre-teens and teenagers with Invisalign. Three million teenagers worldwide have straightened their teeth with Invisalign treatment thanks to our cutting-edge technology. At the initial consultation, your Invisalign trained dentist can first help you visualise with the iTero scanning tool, showing 3D digital images of your child’s teeth.
Then, they will use ClinCheck software to map the route to your child’s smile from the very start. Your child can go from just imagining their straighter teeth to seeing them.
Here at The Highgate Dental Practice one of our experienced dentists can advise you on a cosmetic dental treatment of your choice and suitability. We strongly believe on minimal intervention approach, treating your child/teen with Invisalign.
To optimise treatment time we advise that you wear the retainers 22 hour per day only removing them for eating and tooth brushing. When you eat or drink something you should remove the retainers first and then clean them before replacing them.
Yes! Invisalign technology has changed significantly in the past few years and most traditional orthodontic treatment can now be done with Invisalign.
Treatments start from around £2,500 and can go up to £5,000 depending on the type of Invisalign aligners you need and the complexity of the issues with your teeth.
