How Invisalign Works

Using revolutionary digital technology, the clear aligners create your dream smile by gradually moving your teeth into new, accurately planned positions in a discreet and highly effective way.

At Aspire Smiles, we’re dedicated to providing Invisalign treatment to the highest standard possible. We’re exceptionally proud of our high quality service and helping our patients achieve stunning smiles.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?


No one needs to know about your journey to beautifully straight teeth unless you choose to tell them. Invisalign’s discreet aligners slot seamlessly into your everyday life, are removable, and are barely noticeable when worn.


If you’re going to wear aligners for over 22 hours a day, it makes sense for them to be comfortable. Invisalign uses clear aligners custom-made from highly accurate scans, with no metal to irritate your mouth.


Innovative digital 3D scans capture highly precise images of your teeth, and specialised SmartTrack material is used to create aligners, ensuring your treatment is as accurate and effective as possible.


As a gradual straightening treatment, Invisalign is highly effective for a range of issues. It can be used to correct misalignment, overcrowding and gaps, as well as improving the overall appearance of your smile.

What does Invisalign treatment involve?

Invisalign treatment is straightforward and effective, and takes around 9-18 months to complete, depending on each individual case. The complete success of your treatment does require your commitment to wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours per day - your reward is a beautifully straight smile you can be proud to show off!


Beginning treatment

At your initial consultation, we discuss your treatment in detail, examine your teeth and take high-quality digital scans and images. We create your bespoke treatment plan and ensure you are happy with the predicted end result.



Once your clear aligners have been custom-made, we show you how to fit them and how best to remove them for eating and cleaning. You will change the aligner every two to three weeks to continue your treatment progress and your journey to your dream smile.

We will see you regularly throughout treatment to ensure everything is going as planned, and making small adjustments if necessary. It may seem like a lot of appointments, but it ensures we reach an incredible outcome.



Once your treatment is complete, it’s time to start showing off that smile! We give you a retainer to keep your teeth in their new positions, and advice on how to wear it to maintain your smile for the long term.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will Invisalign affect my speech?

    You may find it takes a few days to get used to the aligners, and may have a slight lisp at first, but you should be talking clearly and confidently before long.

  • Are the aligners comfortable?

    Yes, Invisalign aligners have been designed with comfort in mind, enabling you to easily wear them for up to 22 hours a day. They fit snugly over the teeth and have no metal brackets or wires to irritate the skin.

  • How often must I wear my Invisalign aligners?

    Invisalign aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours daily for the best results. They should only be removed for eating, drinking anything other than water, brushing, and flossing. Consistent wear is crucial to achieving the desired results within the planned timeframe.

  • What are Invisalign aligners made of?

    The Invisalign aligners are made from strong medical grade thermoplastic material, which has been uniquely developed for the Invisalign system.

  • What should I do if I lose an aligner?

    If you lose one of your aligners, please contact us as soon as possible for further advice. In the meantime, you can wear an aligner from your previous set to prevent your teeth from moving too far out of line. We may also advise that you move straight onto your next set of aligners, depending on your individual case.

  • How long does Invisalign treatment typically take?

    The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the case's complexity, but it generally takes between 12 to 18 months. Some patients may see results in as few as six months, while more complex cases may require more prolonged treatment. Regular appointments with your orthodontist are necessary to monitor progress and adjust treatment as needed.

  • What is Invisalign, and how does it work?

    Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Invisalign works by gradually moving your teeth into the desired position. Each aligner is slightly different, applying pressure to specific parts of your teeth to slowly adjust their alignment. Patients typically switch to a new set of aligners every one to two weeks as directed by their orthodontist.

  • What are the benefits of choosing Invisalign over traditional braces?

    The primary benefits of Invisalign include aesthetics, as the clear aligners are less noticeable than metal braces; comfort, since the smooth plastic aligners don't have sharp edges; and convenience, as they can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. This flexibility allows patients to eat without restrictions and maintain better oral hygiene. Invisalign also tends to be faster at achieving results in some cases, although this can vary depending on the individual's needs.

  • Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

    Invisalign is suitable for teenagers and adults with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. It may not be suitable for more complex cases or individuals who might have difficulty adhering to the regimen of wearing the aligners for the required time each day.

  • Are there any restrictions on what I can eat or drink with Invisalign?

    Since Invisalign aligners are removable, there are no restrictions on what you can eat or drink during treatment—this is one of the significant advantages over traditional braces. However, removing the aligners before consuming anything other than water is crucial to avoid staining them and maintain proper hygiene.

  • How do I care for my Invisalign aligners?

    To care for your Invisalign aligners, rinse them under lukewarm water and brush them gently with a toothbrush without toothpaste, as some toothpaste can be abrasive. It's also recommended to soak them in a denture cleaner or Invisalign cleaning crystals to keep them fresh and clean. Always ensure they are clean and dry before reinserting them into your mouth after meals.

  • What happens if I lose or damage an Invisalign aligner?

    If you lose or damage an aligner, contact your orthodontist immediately. In many cases, you might be advised to move on to the next aligner in the series or to wear a previous one while waiting for a replacement. It's crucial to address this issue promptly to prevent any disruption to your treatment plan.

  • Can Invisalign correct all orthodontic issues?

    Invisalign is effective for correcting many common orthodontic issues, but it may not be the best solution for more complex problems, such as severe malocclusions or cases that require dramatic dental movements. An orthodontist can determine if Invisalign is an appropriate treatment option during an initial consultation.
