Invisalign in York

We are proud to offer the world's most advanced clear aligner system, Invisalign, to our Clifton Moor Dental Centre patients. 

Teeth straightening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments we offer. Not only do straighter teeth help you smile with confidence, they can also improve the function of misaligned and crowded teeth. An overcrowded mouth with crooked teeth can lead to plaque build up; straighter teeth are easier to keep clean and leave plaque and bacteria with fewer places to hide.

Since starting my dental treatment at Clifton moor it has massively helped me overcome my fear of dentists and needles -  I have seen a few different dentists for both dental treatment and for cosmetic reasons and have always been happy with my results. Staff are very helpful and cannot thank them enough for all of their help, highly professional service from start to finish of all experiences.

Why Invisalign?

Used to treat irregularities in the alignment of teeth, Invisalign is a discreet way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, virtually undetectable aligners. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, our York dental team can help you gain a straighter smile, without the need for metal or wires.

Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, we can plan your complete Invisalign treatment, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. We will then produce a series of Invisalign clear aligners, custom-made for your teeth only, to move them gently into their new, straighter position.

Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your Clifton Moor dentist, depending on your specific needs.

Can Invisalign straighten my teeth?

The size of your jaw and the development of your teeth over time determine how straight your teeth are in adulthood. If you have a small jaw, your teeth may overlap, whereas a large jaw can lead to a gappy smile. Invisalign treatment here in York can help you achieve the smile you dream of, with advanced clear aligners crafted perfectly to your teeth.

Invisalign treatment can help address a variety of teeth straightening conditions including:

Open bite, deep bite, underbite and crossbite

Gapped teeth

Missing teeth

Overcrowding

FAQs

Frequently asked questions about Invisalign

How long does Invisalign take to straighten my teeth?

Treatment time varies depending on the complexity of each individual case and can take anything from 6 to 18 months. After confirming your suitability for the Invisalign treatment and explaining in detail the steps involved, your dentist at Clifton Moor Dental Centre will provide you with a more accurate idea of how long your individual treatment will take. 

Do I need to keep my aligners in all the time?

For the Invisalign treatment to be effective it is recommended that you wear your aligners for a minimum of 22 hours per day, removing them to eat, brush and floss your teeth. Every two weeks, you will need to swap your aligners with a new set, which will gradually push your teeth into the desired positions.

Are Invisalign aligners uncomfortable?

While there is a small chance of a little discomfort as your teeth gradually move closer together, this is a positive sign that the Invisalign treatment is working. Most patients only report discomfort for the first few days after wearing a new set of aligners and some report no discomfort at all. 

How often will I need to see my dentist when undergoing Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign appointment intervals are generally the same as with traditional braces. However, they can be much quicker, with less time spent in the dentist's chair during appointments, as no adjustments need to be made to wires/brackets. Patients typically visit us here in York every 4 to 6 weeks to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned and to receive their next few sets of Invisalign aligners. Your dentist will decide, based on your individual treatment plan.

Will my aligners become stained?

One of the things that makes Invisalign so popular is that the clear plastic aligners are very discreet. If they become stained, they will be more visible. Fortunately, you can prevent this from happening. Remember to remove your aligners before you eat and drink and avoid smoking, as the nicotine can lead to discolouration of your aligners. You should also take care of them properly by brushing them gently with your toothbrush, just as our team will show you.

How much do Invisalign aligners cost at Clifton Moor Dental Centre?

The cost of your Invisalign treatment will depend on the complexity of your individual case. Prices for a single arch start at £2,975. We are pleased to offer 0% finance payment options, to help spread the cost of your teeth straightening treatment.
