Invisalign® works by using series of transparent removable aligners to gently move your teeth into the desired position. It is a gradual process that can often take months.
Once you have completed your Invisalign® treatment with Bishopsgate Dental Care, you will be given 18 months free aftercare to give you added peace of mind.
To make sure your teeth remain where we want them to be, you may need to continue using your Invisalign® aligner after your scheduled treatment to keep your teeth in place. We will advise you when you come in for your consultation and answer any questions you may have.
To assess your current smile and know Invisalign could work for you. Dr Vega will show you how the Invisalign system works, advice how long treatment is likely to take and give an estimate of treatment costs and monthly payment plans available.

We may need to place some small white pressure points on your teeth (attachments) to help with tooth movements which we will remove at the end of treatment. In some Invisalign cases, we would also need to carry out some minor inter-proximal re-contouring or slenderising to create space to allow tooth movement to occur.
You will need to come and see us once every 4-6 weeks so that we can monitor your treatment and provide you with new aligners and attachments as necessary.

"When I took over Bishopsgate Dental Care I had a clear vision of what kind of dentistry I wanted to provide my patients. I believe in prevention and I try to be as conservative as possible. This is the reason I believe so strongly about Invisalign. With Invisalign you are using what you have, your own teeth but in a better more beautiful position!.
Invisalign is for everybody - from teenagers, to young professionals trying to got ahead in their career, to people in their 50s and older."
