Invisalign was first invented in the 1990s and it has been used in cosmetic dentistry since 1999. This innovative, comfortable, clear and removable teeth-straightening technique has gained a cult status and many followers over the years. Patients wishing to straighten their teeth can use Invisalign instead of metal braces. However, some people are still reluctant to have Invisalign due to the perceived prohibitory cost.
Invisalign is a completely different treatment than braces, since it employs aligners to create pressure points in the mouth and straighten the teeth, instead of metal brackets and wires. Overall, the cost of Invisalign in London is very similar to that of conventional braces. Each case is different, but a chat with Dr Graham Tinkler, a leading Invisalign provider, can help you dispel many myths surrounding Invisalign.
The cost of Invisalign in London is affected by the dentist providing it. More specifically, you should expect a different cost from a dentist who has just started providing this treatment, compared to a dentist who has been providing Invisalign for many years with great success. However, this doesn’t mean that the more experienced the dentist, the more unaffordable the treatment is. Dr Tinkler, who has been treating patients with Invisalign for many years and is considered one of the most successful Invisalign dentists around the world, offers clear aligners for as little as £1,995.
The complexity of your dental problem is another factor to take into consideration while thinking about having your teeth straightened with Invisalign.
In some cases, it might be cheaper to choose a different teeth-straightening method instead of Invisalign, especially if you need to fix more than one problem.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign has a limited capacity of treatment and can only fix lightly to moderately crooked, gapped and crowded teeth.
The Invisalign packages that Dr Tinkler offers have a fixed cost that will reflect your unique problem, including follow-up and adjustment appointments.
Is it worth it?
When deciding on Invisalign, you should always keep in mind that there is no substitute for experience and quality. Dr Graham Tinkler has been offering consistent results over the years.
