So, you want to straighten your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile but you’re wondering how much it costs, right?
As you are reading this blog post, I am going to assume you have already decided you would like the more discreet option of using nearly invisible aligners–such as Invisalign.
Invisalign is a treatment designed to gradually straighten your teeth–using a series of clear, removable aligners – instead of conventional metal brackets and wires.
There are over 50+ different forms of clear aligners–Invisalign is just one of them.
At Park Place Dental Practice we enjoy using Invisalign due to the degree of control and predictability that we can achieve for our patients. We have been straightening teeth for over 10+ years so your smile is safe in our hands.
The average cost of Invisalign treatment in Cardiff can range between £2500-£6000. The reason for this wide price range is due to several factors which we will discuss below.
But you may be asking why some Dental Practices charge as low as £2500.00 and others close to £6000.00.
Who can carry out Invisalign treatment for me?
This can be done by a specialist orthodontist (which is recommended for complex cases) or by a general dentist.
When straightening your teeth, you should choose a dentist/orthodontist who is going give you great results, whilst also factoring in reducing the risk of possible future relapse (after all almost 50% of our patients have had orthodontic treatment in the past).
Accurate 3D scans
When planning your case we will take an accurate 3D scan of your mouth–not an impression. This typically means increased accuracy for your case as we can get aligners that fit and adapt to all the contours of your teeth snuggly.
Comprehensive smile photographs
We treat each case as a cosmetic smile design case–so we take a full series of photos. These photos allow us to see how your teeth fit within your facial frame, how they fit between your upper and lower lip, and how they look when in your mouth, and when you’re smiling. This usually consists of 18 photos. By using these photos we can plan exactly where we want your teeth to end up after we align them.
Personalised prescriptions done by us (not relying solely on the technicians to choose the final position of your teeth)
Using the photos and digital scan, we submit a personalized prescription to the Invisalign technicians that dictate exactly how and where we want every single tooth in the mouth to end up once we finish.
A few days after this, the technicians will send us your initial plan. We very rarely accept this. This is because, even with all the photographs, 3D scans of your teeth, and personalized prescriptions, there are always ways we can make your case more predictable. This often includes–changing the final tooth positions for aesthetic purposes and reducing the risk of relapse, tailoring the attachments to allow faster movement, and reducing the interproximal reduction to limit any unnecessary tooth contouring.
Your Final Digital Plan – worth £250.00
We only call you back to review your final case once we are 100% happy. This saves you multiple appointments. At this stage, if there’s anything you would like to tweak for your final design we do just that! This is a great time for you to see exactly how we want your teeth to look at the end of your treatment.
Digital Monitoring – worth £350.00+
Once you have started your Invisalign treatment we track your progress on a weekly basis from the comfort of your home. This means you have fewer appointments, you can change aligners more quickly and if anything isn’t going as planned we can pick it up extremely early and correct this. We do not charge extra for additional aligners!
We offer early morning, lunch, and late evening appointments so they can fit around your schedule–meaning less time out of work and more time with your family and friends!
Tooth whitening – worth £350.00
All our Invisalign packages include tooth whitening. After all, we want you to have a beautiful smile so it’s only fair that this isn’t a hidden extra cost – we hate hidden costs!
Bite stabilisation – worth £300.00
A common issue with clear aligner orthodontics is that once your teeth look lovely and straight your bite isn’t often in its best position because of your back teeth. This can increase the risk of your teeth moving again and can increase the risk of other jaw and teeth problems. After your alignment, we include a bite stabilization appointment so you can live comfortably with your results for a lifetime.
Additional benefits – worth £1000+
Once your teeth are aligned you may want to smooth off or build up any uneven edges on your teeth –we offer 20% off these treatments with your Invisalign package.
Keeping your teeth in that position – worth £198.00
Our Invisalign packages include end-of-treatment retainers to ensure that your teeth stay in that position for life. If you follow our protocol we can guarantee your teeth won’t move and you can benefit from your new smile for the rest of your life!
So, hopefully, you can now see what’s involved in the process of creating your perfect smile. Invisalign is just a product that some dentists use to achieve your perfect smile.
Our Invisalign Packages are below:
- Straighten only your upper or lower teeth – £3000.00
