How to find Invisalign near you

Invisalign have made it very easy to search for UK dentists near you that offer their world-famous clear aligners. Simply enter your town, city or postcode into their online search tool below, and within seconds you'll see a list and map view showing all the providers in your area.

From here, you can read more information about each dentist, click through to their website, or apply advanced filters.

How to choose the best Invisalign provider near you

When browsing nearby Invisalign doctors, you'll see several pieces of information which might be important. Let's take a look at how these may inform your decision.

Invisalign provider levels

You may notice that each Invisalign dentist is assigned a level from Bronze to Diamond. But what do these categories mean?

Well, they are simply a reflection of the number of Invisalign treatments that provider has performed. Bronze Invisalign providers are the least experienced, whereas Diamond providers have treated the highest number of patients.

Here's a full breakdown of the Invisalign provider levels:

  • Diamond (most treatments completed)
  • Platinum Elite
  • Platinum
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Bronze (fewest treatments completed)

This ranking is not intended to represent the skill level of a dentist; it simply shows how experienced they are with providing Invisalign clear aligners.

Near work or home

If you work during normal office hours, you may find it more convenient to visit a dentist or orthodontist close to your workplace. You'll need regular checkups during your Invisalign treatment – approximately every four to six weeks. It's therefore worth choosing a location that won't be a big hassle to reach each time.

You can search for dentists with extended office hours by using the Advanced search feature.

Free Invisalign consultations

A lot of Invisalign dentists offer a free initial consultation, but not all do. To find a free Invisalign consultation near you, search for Invisalign dentists and then apply the Advanced search filter ‘Free initial consultation'. Then, only those who offer a free assessment will be displayed.

Speedy appointments

You can also use the Advanced search to find a provider with appointments available in the next two weeks. Select this option if you're keen to get started sooner rather than later.

Invisalign orthodontist vs dentist

Not all Invisalign providers are qualified orthodontists (specialists in tooth movement). Part of the reason for this is that Invisalign's technology does a lot of the work involved with planning and carrying out treatment. This makes it possible for any properly trained dentist to administer the treatment.

However, if you'd like the extra assurance that your Invisalign provider is also an expert in teeth straightening, you may used the Advanced search feature to select only orthodontists from the list of Invisalign providers near you.

What to expect at your first visit

When you attend your first Invisalign appointment, your dentist will begin by asking about the results you wish to achieve. This is your chance to explain why you're unhappy with your teeth and why you want clear aligners.

Then, they will do a general checkup to ensure you are a good candidate. If you have any untreated gum disease or cavities, these may need to be dealt with before you can commence treatment.

To create your Invisalign treatment plan, your dentist will do a 3D oral scan using a small camera-like device. This maps out the exact shape of your teeth in just a minute or two and is much more comfortable than traditional putty dental impressions.

This scan is used to create your treatment plan, which will include an animation of your projected tooth movement.

Why choose Invisalign?

For many years Invisalign has been at the forefront of clear aligner teeth straightening. They are constantly developing new technology to make their treatment more precise and effective, and they have now successfully treated over 10 million smiles. This study shows how the design helps to treat patients effectively and achieve great results.

There are other brands out there, but we believe Invisalign is the best choice if you want:

  • Straighter teeth without fixed metal braces
  • A market-leading company with the most established processes
  • A simple 3D oral scan, rather than dental impressions
  • Regular face-to-face checkups to monitor your treatment and overall oral health
  • The choice of thousands of providers across the UK
  • An easy way to browse Invisalign dentists near you

Some Invisalign competitors have a much smaller network (or no in-person visits at all) and don't have such a handy tool for comparing your nearest providers. They also may not use the same advanced technology to make the process run smoothly from initial consultation to final retainers.

Finally, if you haven't already checked your eligibility for Invisalign, it's a good idea to do so with their quick online smile assessment. Around 90% of people are good candidates for these aligners, but the most severe cases will need to be treated with fixed braces.
