Invisalign treatment in Southsea, Portsmouth
Straighten your teeth with clear, comfortable aligners. Invisalign® uses multiple sets of aligners that gradually move your teeth to the desired position.
Adult Orthodontics are more popular than ever thanks to more subtle methods of straightening teeth. When we think of braces, we no longer picture wires and metal brackets. Invisalign revolutionised orthodontics with its clear, removable aligners that are near invisible and very comfortable.
How does Invisalign work?
This discreet orthodontic technique uses a series of custom-made aligners to gradually move your teeth into a new improved position. Invisalign can be used for most cases; crowding, gaps, uneven smiles and more. As it is a less noticeable way to straighten your teeth, it is suitable for adults or teenagers who may feel self-conscious about wearing other types of braces.
Invisalign braces are especially loved by teenagers as they are almost invisible, the aligners don’t break as easy as other braces and teeth can be cleaned just as normal. So many of our patients ask us about them and they’re so pleased when even their family don’t notice they have them in!
Invisalign braces are fitted on an individual basis. At Clarendon Dental, we use state of the art iTero scanner to scan your teeth to create a bespoke appliance adapted to you. These innovative aligners can also be taken out, so you can maintain your oral hygiene as normal, eat whatever you choose and remove them for special occasions.
(Refundable £20 reservation fee is required)
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Treatment times can vary but most cases are usually completed within 6-12 months. However, you do have to be sure to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day to benefit from successful and speedy results. You will also need to wear a retainer following treatment to keep your newly aligned teeth straight.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Everything about Invisalign has been designed with comfort in mind. The accurate and precise impressions promise a secure fit and the careful gum-line trim ensures comfort.
When choosing to have a cosmetic treatment like orthodontics, it makes sense that it should be aesthetically pleasing. Invisalign appliances are made from a clear plastic that is durable and hardly noticeable when worn.
Because Invisalign is removable, you can eat and drink the same foods you did before. You simply take them out when you eat, clean your teeth and then pop them back on.
- Minimally invasive
Invisalign is a gradual and gentle treatment. You barely feel anything as it works through applying small amounts of force on the teeth that need to be straightened.
Invisalign uses cutting edge technology in every step of its creation – from the 3D scanning used to capture accurate impressions of your teeth to the SmartTrack material specially engineered to straighten teeth with maximum comfort.

The cost of treatment depends on each individual case, with complex cases needing more aligners and therefore are more expensive. We can give you an exact treatment cost based on the examination and assessment we carry out during your initial consultation. We also offer payment plans and finance options to help you spread the cost of treatment.
You can use a toothbrush and water to clean your aligner. Don’t use boiling water, as it will warp it. Usually, by the time the aligner is getting a little tired or stained, it’s time to start using your new one anyway.
