You have probably heard about invisalign, clear braces or secret smile but what exactly is it?
It is essentially as way of moving your teeth using gentle forces without having to wear traditional braces, the metal train tracks that can be a little unsightly. Instead, Invisalign are clear, near invisible braces. Whilst train tracks are an acceptable form or orthodontic treatment in your teenage years, young adults are not so keen on this. The beauty of invisalign is that the braces are completely clear & inconspicuous. We have models such as Shauna Lyndsey and Sinead O’Brien (Sinead’s Curvy Styles) who are undergoing this treatment, wearing the clear braces 24/7 and you would never know. Its an amazing innovative way to improve your smile to give you the confidence to smile a beautiful healthy straight smile, with our succumbing to traditional braces.
How does the system work?
Invisalign straighten teeth using a series of custom-made clear aligners. Every 2 weeks you replace the aligners and your teeth will gradually move into the final position, which you have pre-determined with your clinician using ClinCheck® technology.
How long will I have to wear the aligners?
The treatment time will vary from person to person, depending on the complexity of treatment. It also depends on how often you wear the braces, you set the treatment goals by virtue of your lifestyle. Usually however the treatment time will be from 10-18months.
How much does it cost?
The extent of the treatment and the number of aligners required will dictate the cost of the invisalign treatment. However, in general the fees are between €3500 to €3950. We offer interest free payment plans over the course of the treatment, so the treatment can cost as little as €152 per month (with a €750 initial deposit). Once you have completed treatment, you can claim 20% tax back on submission of a Med2 form to revenue. All you final retainers and final tooth whitening are included free in the total cost.
