If you’ve always wanted a straighter smile but worry about having to wear traditional braces, then Invisalign could be the solution for you. This groundbreaking treatment uses clear, almost invisible aligners, which are changed every 1 to 2 weeks to move your teeth little by little and week by week to their perfect position. As an Invisalign Gold provider, we’ve helped many of our patients (as well as staff and family members) discover their smile with Invisalign.
Overcrowded or crooked teeth, gaps and problems with bite can leave even the most confident of people feeling self-conscious. Unfortunately, traditional braces with wires, metal or brackets cause a similar kind of embarrassment.
At Shine Dental Care we provide Invisalign as it brings so many benefits to our patients. Discreet and comfortable with removable aligners for eating, brushing and flossing – we believe this treatment has truly transformed orthodontics.
Invisalign has been designed to fit in with your life and cause as little disruption as possible
You’ll be able to eat what you like and talk and smile freely without worrying about metal braces. We have several dentists providing Invisalign treatment ensuring that appointments available outside of working hours and on Saturdays for your convenience.
Most patients visit us each month to check that their progress is on track with treatment time varying from a few months to 2 years depending on the complexity of your needs.

Invisalign is also suitable for teenagers. Options include the same Invisalign treatment used by adults and Invisalign Teen – we can talk through this in detail during a consultation.
Our prices are clear and transparent, you’ll know exactly what to expect and when. We also provide a range of payment options to help spread the costs.
The Invisalign treatment process
At Shine Dental Care, Mansfield
As orthodontic and Invisalign providers, we’re highly experienced in assessing our patients’ suitability for Invisalign. We’ll take some impressions of your teeth and identify any potential issues such as acute gum disease or missing teeth. We’ll then talk through treatment options including whether or not Invisalign is appropriate for you.
If you are suitable for Invisalign treatment and decide to go ahead, we’ll take photographs, X-rays and digital scans. These will be used by Invisalign to create a bespoke ClinCheck® 3D treatment plan. The plan shows how your teeth will move over the treatment course. You’ll be able to see your new smile before treatment even begins as ClinCheck® digitally maps your Invisalign journey from start to finish.
Your almost invisible aligners
The next step is for your aligners (invisible braces) to be custom made. You’ll replace each aligner every 1 to 2 weeks to help your teeth gradually move to their ultimate position. When your first aligners arrive, we’ll help you practise putting them in and out as well as talking through the dental hygiene routine that you’ll need to stick to.
We’ll carefully monitor your progress throughout Invisalign treatment with regular visits at convenient times to suit you. You can also download the My Invisalign Smile app to compare your progress every time you change aligner.
At the end of your treatment, we can make any final adjustments to ensure you’re completely happy with the results. We’ll also provide your retainer to help you maintain results. The Invisalign system uses Vivera retainers, which are renowned for their strength, comfort and durability.
