How much does Invisalign cost?

If discretion and comfort are at the forefront of your mind when it comes to your dental treatment, then Invisalign may be right for you. Invisalign aligners are transparent and custom-made to fit the contours of your mouth. Unlike traditional braces, they can also be easily removed before you brush your teeth or eat a meal. Essentially, your Invisalign treatment will straighten your teeth without hindering your busy lifestyle.

At Revitalise Dental Centre we offer a complimentary teeth whitening session once your Invisalign treatment is complete. Invisalign can also be followed up with other treatments and many patients choose to further enhance their smile with cosmetic bonding, veneers and dental implants. Dr Alkisti Vousvouni is trained in Invisalign and bonding treatments at Revitalise.

Is Invisalign worth it?

Unlike traditional braces that can be uncomfortable and hinder flexibility in your lifestyle, Invisalign can straighten misalignment discreetly. If you are going out for an important social occasion, Invisalign’s transparent aligners can be worn in an unobtrusive manner or be easily removed before you sit down for a meal. As long as you are wearing your aligners for 22-24 hours a day, Invisalign’s patented technology will continue to gently push your teeth into the correct place. Invisalign is also twice as durable and 30% stronger than other alignment technologies.

Discreet and non-invasive, Invisalign aligners have helped over 9 million people straighten their smiles.

How long will Invisalign take?

Invisalign treatment usually takes between 3-18 months. This depends on your age and how strictly you are sticking with your treatment plan, as well as your general oral health and how misaligned your teeth are. Patients with minor misalignment can have a beautifully straight smile in just 12 weeks. Most patients require a minimum of 6 – 18 months but you will start to notice results right away.

How much will Invisalign cost?

At Revitalise Dental Centre, Invisalign treatment costs £3,800. This includes your initial consultation, which is covered with a non-refundable 10% deposit at the time of booking. Your appointments and follow-up consultations are also included, as well as your Invisalign retainers which will need to be replaced every few weeks. This is dependent on the treatment plan you have discussed with your Revitalise practitioner. You will receive a complimentary tooth whitening session and many of our patients choose to go on to request other cosmetic treatments. We also have manageable finance plans.

What issues can Invisalign remedy?

Invisalign aligners can be used to straighten twisted teeth, spaced teeth and/or crowded teeth. The treatment is also recommended to patients with a crossbite, overbite, underbite or open bite.

What is the process of Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign will take you on a journey to a straighter smile both discreetly and painlessly. During your initial consultation, your Revitalise practitioner will answer any questions you may have, as well as evaluate your overall oral health.

Dr Alkisti Vousvouni is an Invisalign-trained practitioner here at Revitalise. She will assess your suitability for the Invisalign treatment and will also be able to answer any questions you may have about further treatments you may desire to enhance your smile.

Follow-up consultation

Once your Revitalise practitioner has determined you to be a suitable candidate for the Invisalign treatment, you will return for a follow-up consultation. Your bespoke Invisalign treatment plan will be outlined and you will also receive your aligners.

For patients with veneers or crowns, there is a possibility you may not be suited for Invisalign treatment. These cases are treated on an individual basis and it is best to discuss treatment with one of our Revitalise practitioners. They will be able to assess your oral health and determine whether Invisalign is right for you.

If Invisalign is not the right treatment for you, your practitioner will discuss your other options such as Six Month Smiles ®, a revolutionary short-term orthodontic treatment that can give you a beautifully straight smile in just six months. Discreet and painless, the Six Month Smiles ® treatment uses clear braces which are fixed, much like traditional orthodontic braces but more discreet. Talk to your Revitalise practitioner if you think Six Month Smiles ® might be an appropriate treatment for you.

Continued consultations

As your Invisalign journey progresses, your Revitalise practitioner will be with you every step of the way. During these consultations, your practitioner will assess your oral health and progress with the treatment. They will also be available to answer any questions you may have and make sure you are following your treatment plan. For Invisalign treatment to work, you need to wear your aligners for 22-24 hours a day. If you are failing to comply with your plan, Invisalign treatment may take longer to straighten your teeth. Be sure to talk with your practitioner about getting your treatment back on track.

Finishing your treatment

Once your Invisalign treatment comes to an end, you will have to wear a retainer. Any follow-up treatments can be discussed by your Revitalise practitioner, who can also advise you on any other cosmetics treatments you may be interested in, such as veneers, dental implants and cosmetic bonding. To make the most of your new smile, you may want to book regular whitening appointments or enquire about cosmetic bonding with our very own internationally renowned Dr Jason Smithson.

How can I clean my aligners?

The best way to clean your aligners is by rinsing them in warm water and using Invisalign’s patented Cleaning Crystals, you can also use warm water and brush with antibacterial soap. During your Invisalign treatment you will also need to brush your teeth after each meal before re-inserting your aligners to maintain good oral health throughout the treatment. If you do not remove your aligners before you eat or brush your teeth before re-inserting them, food and drink could stain your aligners and disrupt treatment.

Do I have to go through a dentist for my Invisalign treatment?

As Invisalign treatment is considered a prescription, all aligners must be ordered through a licensed Invisalign practitioner. This is to ensure you are not only suitable for the treatment but your Invisalign aligners fit correctly. By speaking to an Invisalign practitioner you also receive advice from a licensed dentist who can make sure you are sticking to your treatment plan.

What other treatments will be available to me after I finish Invisalign?

If you would like to enhance your smile even further, our team at Revitalise are happy to discuss your options. Once Invisalign treatment is complete, many of our patients consider cosmetic treatments to further enhance their smile which can improve their confidence and the functionality of their oral health.

Veneers

Veneers are an efficient and effortless solution to stained, chipped or crooked teeth. A veneer is a thin ceramic shell securely attached to your tooth or teeth and is usually attached to your most visible teeth at the front of your mouth.

Whether you are filling a gap or treating a single badly stained tooth, our porcelain veneers can give your smile an elegant finish and boost your confidence. If teeth whitening does not give a patient a satisfactory result, veneers can also act as a treatment for discolouration. Veneers can also straighten twisted or misaligned teeth and protect your teeth if you have damaged enamel.

Revitalise has a dedicated laboratory, Dental Precision, with state-of-the-art facilities that enable our technicians to create custom-made veneers and other prostheses on-site, so you can achieve more functionality in your oral health and improve your self-confidence in just 2 to 4 weeks. We also use innovative ELab Technology which matches the shade of your natural teeth with your ceramic veneers. With the correct maintenance, veneers can last 15 years and can even relieve teeth sensitivity.  

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a long-term solution to missing or broken teeth. With a ceramic crown and titanium “root”, dental implants replicate the look and feel of a natural tooth and give patients the confidence to live their lives without hindrance.  A dental implant is a straightforward and routine treatment that can usually be completed within a day and not only replicates the organic look of your natural teeth but can greatly improve the functionality of your oral health. Dental implants are also permanently fixed in your jaw and can maintain and strengthen your jawbone. With the correct routine, dental implants can last for 20 years.  Dr Simon Martin is our in-house implantologist, with over 15 years of experience and dedication placing implants.

Dental implants come in many different shapes and sizes.

Single tooth implant

One missing tooth can be replaced with a single implant. This treatment restores functionality and improves the health of neighbouring teeth and your jawbone.

Implant supported bridge

If you have multiple missing or chipped teeth, then an implant supported bridge may be the treatment for you.

Full arch

If you are missing just about all your teeth, then you may be eligible for a full arch of dental implants. If you have any teeth remaining, they will be removed and replaced. Your upper jaw will require a minimum of four implants as the bone is often softer, while your lower jaw will need a minimum of two implants.

Cosmetic Bonding 

Cosmetic bonding, also known as composite bonding or direct resin bonding, is the application of a special form of tooth coloured plastic called dental composite resin to your teeth. It is a fast and efficient way to fix minor cosmetic issues. If you have decay, damage or discolouration, then cosmetic bonding can repair as well as improve the overall shape and appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic bonding is a non-invasive treatment and, in most cases, requires just one appointment. At Revitalise our very own Dr Jason Smithson pioneered the technique of cosmetic bonding in Great Britain over two decades ago and has since travelled all over the world educating other dental practitioners on the treatment. Dr Alkisti Vousvouni our Invisalign practitioner also offers cosmetic bonding and other Dental Treatments you may require.

At our state-of-the-art eco-building in St Agnes, Cornwall, Revitalise Dental Centre uses 3D imaging technology to create a mock-up of your anticipated result so you can see how Invisalign treatment will improve your smile before you even commit to treatment.

Can I have Invisalign if I already have veneers or dental implants?

If you are considering Invisalign treatment but already have veneers, talk to your Revitalise practitioner. Cases are treated on an individual basis, so it is important to discuss your goals and overall oral health with your practitioner. If Invisalign is not the best solution for your misaligned teeth, our team will be able to suggest other treatments that might work for you such as Six Month Smiles ®.

If you already have dental implants, your Revitalise practitioner may suggest other more suitable treatments to straighten your teeth. If you are thinking about getting dental implants but straightening your teeth is also at the forefront of your treatment plan, your dentist may recommend you complete your Invisalign treatment first before receiving your implants. By straightening your teeth first, you will receive the best possible outcome for your dental implants.

Before going ahead with any treatment, your Revitalise practitioner will map out a treatment plan to ensure the best possible end to your journey.

Client: Marion
Treatment: Complete mouth secured with implants

“The minute I met Martin, I just knew he was so calm and relaxing. So then we had a discussion and Martin said what he could do and it had to be what our pocket could afford as well and we went ahead with it. The experience I had at this dentist was unbelievable, it was a journey I loved every minute of.”


Client: Dee
Treatment: Dental Implants

“There’s always smiling, handshakes, hugs and plenty of tea and coffee. They looked after my husband who was there for the day. They do the sedation and Hayley looked after me. Obviously I was unaware of exactly what they were doing, but they always make you feel so comfortable. Although you’re nervous, I don’t think I could’ve gone and got the same treatment anywhere else.”
