Bamboo Teeth Straightening

Invisalign Dentists in Cardiff

Meet the equivalent of an invisibility cloak for your teeth. Only you will know that you’re wearing an Invisalign brace so you can let it work its magic while you get on with your life.

It uses a set of clear aligners to straighten your teeth. The Invisalign aligner will correct overcrowding and gaps in your teeth and it’s removable, so it’s easier to clean and you can take it out for special occasions.

The best thing about it is that you could see results in as little as 12 weeks.

We’ve seen thousands of happy patients leave our practice in Cardiff with new smiles thanks to Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign straightening is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth into their correct positions.

It’s a popular alternative to traditional braces thanks to the discreet looks it offers, and is commonly used to treat conditions such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, gap teeth, open bite, and overcrowded teeth.

What is the average cost of Invisalign in the UK?

The cost of Invisalign depends on how long your expected treatment plan is, and how many arches you need (i.e. which set of teeth). Invisalign Express (our three month option) is available from Bamboo Cosmetic Dentistry from £1595, and payments can be spread across our payment plans making treatment more affordable and convenient.

Can you pay for Invisalign monthly UK?

Our Invisalign payment plans mean you can spread the cost of your treatment over 12 or 24 months, with 0% interest free credit available up to 18 months. For more information on pricing, check our out pricing page for a monthly payment calculator.

Is Invisalign worth the money?

Don’t just take our word for it – view our Smile Gallery to see hundreds of patients who have had their smiles and their lives transformed by Invisalign! It’s difficult to put a price on the confidence of being able to smile with confidence, but Invisalign will help you get there.

Does Invisalign work permanently?

Yes! Though there is a small potential that your teeth may want to shift back to a previous position after your treatment, Invisalign is generally designed to be a permanent, transformative procedure. Follow your dentist’s guidelines during and after your treatment for the best possible results.

Do you sleep with Invisalign in?

Invisalign is generally meant to be worn for most of the day (up to 22 hours), so in short, yes, you should sleep wearing your Invisalign. Think of it as having your teeth straightened, while you sleep!

Is Invisalign faster than braces?

Depending on the severity of any misalignment, and your personal goals, Invisalign can be faster than traditional braces — often by up to six months or more. Our average treatment length for Invisalign depends on several factors including the level of complexity and misalignment, but we’ll walk you through the process during your consultation and set realistic timelines.

How does Invisalign work?

After you’ve visited us for a consultation, and together we have decided that Invisalign is a good option for you, we’ll perform a 3D digital scan of your teeth and gums. We can use this to produce what’s known as a clincheck. A clincheck is a digital representation of your teeth as they are before treatment and at every weekly stage of treatment right the way through to the end result. Just like magic you will be able to see what your teeth will look like before committing. Once you are happy with it, we can proceed with your treatment.

We’ll then send the scan of your teeth to our Invisalign technicians who make the clear aligners. Each aligner will be worn for one week or until your teeth have moved into the position of the aligner. When this happens, it’s time for a new one so we will fit a new aligner and repeat the process until your teeth are perfectly straight. Often we will give you a bunch of aligners to be getting on with at home so you only need to see us approximately every 6 weeks.

You’ll wear the aligners for around 22 hours a day and throughout the treatment, we’ll do our very best to make sure that you’re as comfortable as possible while you get used to wearing them.

Your cosmetic dentist may have mentioned the need to place temporary composite attachments on some of your teeth. The attachments help the aligners grip the teeth and make the tooth movements more efficient, speeding up the process. Very rarely is a tooth removed to make space for cosmetic teeth straightening, instead cosmetic dentists tend to make space by removing tiny amounts of ‘dead’ tooth enamel at strategic points in your mouth. This is typically done on your Invisalign fit appointment and is painless, if a little strange feeling.

Similar treatments

Invisalign is a hugely popular dental procedure that is proven to yield great results for patients.

If you’re looking for alternatives, we also provide Six Month Smiles, which as the name suggests, can provide a transformed smile in as little as six months. Although both set out to provide straighter teeth, there are a few key differences between the two procedures:

Comfort
Because Six Month Smiles involves a brace stuck onto your teeth, it can take a little longer to get used to. Invisalign takes around 2 weeks to get used to and the Six Month Smiles takes a month. The Six Month Smiles brace will rub your lips more than Invisalign in the early days after fitting, and you may need to use the dental wax we give you to provide comfort. All brace systems will cause some tenderness to the teeth once they begin to move, and there is no real difference here between the two types.

Flexibility
Invisalign is removable, and we suggest this when eating or drinking to avoid any complications. Traditional braces such as those used in Six Month Smiles for example, are typically fixed and cannot be removed until the treatment is completed. Apart from avoiding hard foods like thick crusty bread and foods that stain like turmeric you can eat whatever you want with the Six Month Smiles brace. Depending on who you ask, the flexibility of having a brace you can remove will either be a good thing or a bad thing.

Duration of treatment
Six Month Smiles is often a quicker procedure than Invisalign, but the biggest difference is the predictability of the finish point. Six Month Smiles more often than not finishes when your cosmetic dentist predicted on initial consultation. Invisalign can in half of cases go on past the initial treatment time, with the need for additional aligners (often without extra cost). If time is a priority, Six Month Smiles may be more suitable.

Key benefits of Invisalign

The major benefit of Invisalign is its virtually invisible appearance. The aligners are clear and fit snugly over your teeth, making them discreet compared to traditional metal braces. They’re also removable, which means you can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss, and our patients love this flexibility.

Other benefits include a good level of comfort and fewer dental visits compared to some more aggressive types of straightening. The thing we hear most from our patients is the confidence that an almost invisible treatment like Invisalign offers, particularly when compared to some outdated views of ‘old-school’ braces.
