Sophie has over 15 years experience in treating patients using Invisalign clear braces. She is currently a Platinum Elite Invisalign provider.
Invisalign is a system of almost invisible clear aligners used to straighten teeth. The treatment consists of wearing a series of Invisalign aligners that you change at home weekly.
The aligners are one of the world’s most advanced clear orthodontic systems available.
The Invisalign aligners are custom made for your mouth, and your teeth only. Wearing a series of aligners, your teeth will move a small amount at a time, until they are beautifully straight.
Using the iTero scanner, we can show you the results the Invisalign system can achieve at your first consultation. This allows you to see your straight teeth before you start your Invisalign treatment.

How does the treatment work?
Overall, an average treatment takes between 6 and 9 months, and is made up of the following steps:
You meet with Sophie for a consultation about your treatment.
Based on Sophie’s treatment plan and your dental records, a virtual 3D treatment plan (clincheck) is generated that shows you the movement of your teeth from the current position to the desired final position.
Once you and Sophie have approved the plan, the aligners are made to custom-fit your teeth, and your teeth only. The number of aligners varies for each person.
You wear your aligners about 22 hours everyday, except to eat, brush, and floss, or for a specific occasion.
Every week, you switch to a new set of aligners. The aligners will gradually move your teeth into their final prescribed position.
Benefits of Invisalign
Designed to custom-fit your teeth and go with your lifestyle, Invisalign offers many benefits beyond your brand-new smile:
It is virtually invisible; hardly anyone will see that you are straightening your teeth.
It allows you to maintain your dental hygiene and brush and floss as usual.
The aligners can be removed for eating and drinking or special occasions.
There is less chance of irritation on your mouth and gums since there are no brackets or wires.
Even before you start treatment you’ll know how long your treatment may take and what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment.
