What's the big deal with Invisalign?

People love how flexible Invisalign braces are: they’re not fixed to teeth, but instead are clear plastic trays that are worn a bit like a retainer. This makes them comfortable, too – and of course, they can be taken out at any time.

Invisalign is also extremely discreet. The clear braces are virtually invisible on the smile, meaning other people often can’t spot when they’re being worn.

Finally, Invisalign braces are a dream to clean. Most of the time, a quick rinse is all that’s needed – with a soak in a cleaning solution every few days.

Who wears Invisalign braces?

Celebrities love these clear braces, and many of them are vocal about undergoing treatment. Some A-listers who’ve admitted to their secret include:

  • Action star Tom Cruise
  • Hollywood actress Katherine Heigl
  • Tennis ace Serena Williams
  • Singer Justin Bieber

Now, all of these celebs top best-dressed lists and are known for their impeccable style and winning smiles.

How does Invisalign work?

These clever clear braces are modelled on your natural smile, with plastic aligners created for each stage of treatment. A scan is first taken of your smile, and then a computer plots each tiny movement your teeth need to make to align them correctly. You’ll be able to see a prediction of your final result, as well as different stages of treatment.

How long does Invisalign take?

Treatment time varies, as it depends on what level of treatment you need. For example, those who may be correcting a severe bite problem may need more sets of aligners and ultimately need more time to align their smile. Results can be seen in a matter of months, which get better over time – and treatment can take as little as 6 months, or more typically, around 18-24 months.
