But before we compare Diamond Whites Aligners to other brands of clear aligners, let’s find out a little bit more about them.  

What are Diamond Whites Aligners? 

Diamond Whites is a clear aligner company based in the UK, co-founded and primarily run by celebrity dentist, Dr Richard Marques. It is a self-proclaimed hybrid company that offers treatments both remotely and in person at its clinic in London. 

As well as their main London clinic, they often have pop-up clinics across the UK for those who prefer in-person consultations. They create treatment plans based on your initial digital scan or moulds from your home-impression kit. 

Your treatment plan will determine how many sets of aligners you need and how long it will take. 

The aligners themselves are custom-made clear plastic trays that fit snugly to your teeth and gradually align your smile. They are made from BPA-free clear plastic that is completely safe, and when worn, the aligners are barely visible. 

If you want to see how you could look after orthodontic treatment with clear aligners, try Invisalign's Smile View tool. Regardless of whether or not you are interested in the Invisalign system or treatment with Diamond Whites Aligners, just upload an image of yourself and get your smile preview back in a few minutes. 

How does Diamond Whites Aligner treatment work?

If you are considering these aligners, the first step would be to order an at-home impression kit or head into their main clinic or one of their pop-up clinics for a digital 3D scan of your teeth. If you get a 3D scan you will be able to see a digital image of how your teeth will look before and after treatment with DW Aligners

It is important that we receive a perfect impression in order to move forward with the production of your aligners. Please take the time to review this video and take each step in the time stated to avoid the putties setting too early!

Using your impressions or your 3D scan, the dental professionals at Diamond Whites can assess if you’re a candidate for treatment and then create your treatment plan. Once you have agreed to your treatment plan, your next steps are as follows: 

  1. Receive your custom sets of aligners and begin wearing the first set. 
  2. Wear your aligners for the recommended 22 hours per day.
  3. Monitoring of your treatment progress is done with ScanBox technology that is linked to an app.
  4. The app will notify a team of dental professionals and Diamond Whites on your progress.
  5. Change to a new set of aligners when prompted.

With your DW Aligners you will also receive a whitening kit, which you can use at any point in your treatment. At the end of your treatment, you will need to purchase a retainer to maintain your new smile. The cost of your treatment does not include retainers, so you will need to purchase one for an extra £200. 

Who is eligible for treatment with Diamond Whites Aligners? 

These aligners are designed to treat mild and some moderate orthodontic cases and may not be suitable for everyone. Some of the mild to moderate issues that DW Aligners may be able to help treat include: 

You must be over the age of 18 to be a candidate for DW Aligners treatment and your teeth and gums must be healthy. If you need any dental work such as fillings or extractions they must be done before you apply for treatment. 

How much do DW Aligners cost? 

The full treatment plan with Diamond Whites Aligners costs £1,300, and payment plans are available. This price includes your sets of aligners, a Scan Box and a whitening kit. Your initial appointment and scan, or your home-impression kit are also included, both of which cost £99 if you don't end up getting treatment. 

Once your treatment is complete you will need to pay another £200 for your retainers to help maintain your smile.

Diamond Whites Aligners vs Invisalign

The main difference between Diamond Whites Aligners vs Invisalign aligners is the complexity of cases that can be treated. DW Aligners are predominantly for mild cases, and the occasional moderate case depending on the orthodontic issues that need to be corrected. 

Invisalign aligners are some of the most advanced aligners on the market and can treat mild, moderate and some complex issues. They are also continually improving their aligner technology which means that more and more cases can be treated. 

Another difference between these two aligners is that although Diamond Whites claim to be a hybrid aligner company, your treatment is still monitored remotely. While you can go into their main office, or a pop-up clinic to have your initial appointment, the rest of your treatment is done via an app. 

The Invisalign system is able to monitor your treatment in person easily because there are providers all over the UK. It is simple to find a provider near you that suits your needs, whether it's close to your work or home, you can choose one that fits your routine seamlessly.

Diamond Whites does have one benefit that sets them apart from other remotely monitored aligner treatments, and that’s their Scan Box technology. You will receive a Scan Box that links to an app on your smartphone that you use to scan your teeth and monitor your treatment. 

You can see how Diamond Whites Aligners remotely monitors your treatment in the following video.

Invisalign offers monitoring both in practice and via an app, giving you above and beyond service. It also gives you the personable feel of face-to-face monitoring. Invisalign providers are potentially less likely to miss something going wrong and many people prefer to consult their dentist or orthodontist in person if they have any concerns. 

If you’re interested to know if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system there’s a quick way to check. Just fill out their online Smile Assessment and get an answer back in minutes. It’s simple to find a provider near you, with the option to book a consultation to learn more. 

Diamond Whites Aligners before and after reviews

Let’s take a look at DW Aligners reviews and see what people are saying about their experiences.

Olivia tells us all about her journey so far with Diamond Whites and Dr Richard's Invisible Aligners… You can start your plan for just £99.99 and if happy, pay as little as £1.51 a day to receive your aligners! Visit www.dwaligners.co.uk for more information!

This first review is from Olivia Bowens who reviews her DW aligner experience so far. At this point, she is on stage seven of her Diamond Whites teeth straightening journey and she is extremely happy with her results so far.  

In her review, she goes through her thoughts on the aligners and shows how the remote monitoring process works. Olivia also shows her before and after photographs to show how far her teeth have moved since beginning treatment. 

Diamond whites aligners – Week 4

This review from YouTuber Lauren Eastwood starts when she is on week four of her aligner treatment. She shows us her aligners and discusses her treatment so far.

At the end of her review, there is a series of pictures showing her Diamond Whites Aligners before and after photographs so far. You can follow her entire Diamond Whites experience on her YouTube channel. 

The next Diamond Whites teeth aligners review is far from positive, and although their treatment started out really well, it didn’t end well. 

“I would avoid diamond whites, at first they were amazing but when I was struggling they didn’t want to know.”

– Ellie Lofthouse

Ellie Lofthouse claims that when she felt her treatment wasn’t going to plan, the advice she was given was to “go back three stages”. She followed the advice but her teeth did not move any further. When she rang back they informed her it was too late and she would need to pay for a new aligner. 

Conclusion

Diamond Whites teeth aligners are clear aligners that can be used to treat mild and some moderate orthodontic cases. You can have your first appointment in their London clinic, or in one of their pop-up clinics around the UK. 

With remote monitoring done through an app, you will receive a Scan Box with your aligners which links up with your smartphone to monitor your treatment progress.

It's easy to find an Invisalign provider near you and book a consultation to learn more

In comparison to the Invisalign system, DW Aligners cannot treat as complex cases. They generally focus on treating mild orthodontic cases. Invisalign treatment is monitored both in-person and via an app, so any issues will be picked up right away. 

If you aren’t sure which orthodontic treatment to go with, why not have a consultation with an Invisalign doctor. There are providers all over the UK, and you are likely to have the pick of a few near you. Just use their postcode search tool to find your nearest provider to discuss treatment options further.
