Invisalign®: Straighten your smile with no fixed braces or wires. Custom-made, comfortable and clear.

If you want a straighter smile but hate wearing braces, Invisalign® is a hugely effective treatment used to straighten crooked, overcrowded, protruding, or gappy teeth.

Removeable, extremely accurate and tailor-made to your teeth and gums, Invisalign® clear aligners are designed for comfort and to fit in with your lifestyle, so you’ll be able to remove them to eat, drink and brush your teeth during treatment.

Maybe you’ve already heard about Invisalign® and are interested in the benefits that they provide? Here’s everything you need to know…

Everything you need to know about Invisalign®.

  • FREE teeth whitening and a set of retainers are included with all of our Invisalign® packages.
  • You can spread payments with Humm.  0% finance also available.
  • Invisalign® aligners are discreet and virtually invisible – nobody will even notice that you’re wearing them, making them a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day activities.
  • Invisalign® aligners are lightweight and comfortable – once you’ve worn them a while, you’ll hardly notice them.
  • The aligners are removable. This gives you the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply taking them out.
  • Unlike traditional braces, it’s much easier to clean your teeth when undergoing treatment.
  • 3D treatment plan – when you have your initial consultation, our specialists will plan out your treatment using the latest 3D scanners, ensuring a precise and comfortable experience throughout your journey with Invisalign® clear aligners.
  • Shorter treatment times – with Invisalign® aligners, it’s usually only necessary to be treated for 6-18 months, unlike traditional braces which can take 2 years.

How we assess our Invisalign® patients in Blackrock.

As with all orthodontic treatments available at Shields Dental & Orthodontic Clinics, Invisalign® treatments are devised following a full discussion with you, the patient, to see if they are your ideal solution. Your Invisalign® dentist will then plan a strategy for moving the teeth gradually into position. Following this, you will visit us regularly over the course of your treatment.

Invisalign® FAQs.

Invisible item
What is the Invisalign® process?

You will book a orthodontic consultation with our orthodontic dentist. 

Once your Invisalign® dentist has confirmed that you are eligible for treatment, they will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression of your teeth. These records will then be used to create a ClinCheck 3D treatment plan, just for you.

After being custom-made and shipped to us, you’ll receive a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks.

You’ll subsequently visit your orthodontic dentist around every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. After finishing your treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain your new smile.

How long does it take?

This depends on the individual but the average time is between 3 and 18 months.

How much does it cost?

It is difficult to say until the current state of your teeth and what you are looking to achieve can be assessed by our orthodontic dentist. However, you can view the price range here.

Is Invisalign® as good as traditional braces?
Invisalign® is very effective and has a proven track record. However, for some more complex problems we still recommend traditional braces. Invisalign® is best suited to milder, more moderate crowding, spacing or bite problems. Book a consultation to see if you are eligible.
