Invisalign is the leading provider of clear alignment technology for young people and adults. Using a series of bespoke gum shields made from patented SmartTrack material, Invisalign aims to straighten smiles in just 12 – 18 months.
Many patients choose Invisalign over fixed braces due to the flexibility they provide. After an initial consultation to determine your suitability for Invisalign, we will determine a course of treatment and your bespoke Invisalign retainers will be created.
Dr Alkisti Vousvouni provides Invisalign and bonding treatments as Revitalise.
Your Invisalign Journey at Revitalise:
Before you can begin your Invisalign journey, you will need to visit the practice for an initial consultation to assess your suitability for treatment. During this session, your dentist will also answer any questions you may have regarding treatment, and assess anything which may stop you from being a suitable candidate for treatment.
A follow-up consultation
Once we have determined whether you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment, you will return to the practice for a second consultation. During this time, we will discuss your bespoke Invisalign treatment plan and you will receive your retainers.
Should we find that Invisalign is not suitable for you, we can discuss other options for treatment. Although Invisalign might not be right, many patients choose to take advantage of our diverse orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry offering to correct any existing problems. For patients who are not suited to Invisalign, we also offer Six Month Smiles, a discreet fixed brace option.
Throughout your Invisalign journey, you will have regular consultations with your Revitalise practitioner. During these consultations, they will answer any questions and assess your overall general oral health.
Once you have completed your course of Invisalign treatment, you may have to wear a retainer. Your Revitalise practitioner will advise as to whether this is necessary and offer any further advice you may need for looking after your newly straightened teeth. On completion of treatment, many patients are ready to begin the next steps in correcting their smile and will book further treatments such as crowns or veneers. Many maintain a regular whitening regime to make the most of their newly straightened smile.

Assessing your suitability for Invisalign treatment
During your initial consultation, we will assess your suitability for Invisalign treatment. For most patients, this is a straightforward process as Invisalign is suited to most patients seeking discreet realignment. However, Invisalign is not suitable for all patients.
If for any reason you are not a suitable candidate for Invisalign, we can offer alternative treatment options. Our Six Month Smiles orthodontic treatment may be more suitable for some patients.
For patients with veneers and crowns, it may be possible to use Invisalign. However, we treat these cases on an individual basis and will be able to offer further guidance during this initial consultation.
Invisalign in conjunction with other treatments
Invisalign can work in conjunction with other treatments to improve your overall oral health. Where you might have missing teeth, Invisalign can correct the positioning of the remaining teeth before dental implants are fitted.
If you are looking to get a Hollywood smile, Invisalign can correct your natural alignment before veneers are placed or cosmetic bonding is used to improve the shape of the teeth.
If you have been struggling with your overall oral health due to your teeth alignment, Invisalign can begin the process of making it easier to look after your teeth and restore your oral health to the best it can be.
All Invisalign treatment at Revitalise comes with a complimentary teeth whitening service, which means that your teeth are ready to show off as soon as your treatment has ended. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is minimally invasive and does not leave staining on the teeth.
