How Much Does Invisalign Cost in the UK?

Invisalign is growing in popularity and fast becoming one of the most popular teeth straightening systems in the UK. It is a revolutionary system that allows you to straighten your teeth without needing to wear traditional fixed braces.

Instead of fixed braces, you wear a series of clear plastic aligners. These aligners apply gentle pressure to your teeth and gradually move your teeth into the correct alignment. With every aligner change, your teeth will be a little bit closer to perfect alignment.

The best part of this system is that you can remove them to eat, drink and brush your teeth. This means that no foods are off limits for the duration of your treatment and you can also care for your teeth with ease. No specialist brushes or taking extra care to brush around your brackets. Simply remove your aligners and then leave your aligners to soak in a cleaning solution while you brush your teeth.

If you are convinced that this system is right for you, you might be wondering about the associated costs. In this guide, we’re looking at how much Invisalign costs in the UK and how you can make this treatment more affordable and accessible.

Is Invisalign available on the NHS

Is Invisalign available on the NHS?

Invisalign is not currently available on the NHS, so under 18s won’t be eligible for free Invisalign treatment. The only option is to choose a private dentist for your Invisalign treatment, and the price can vary between dentists.

In general, the more treatments a dentist carries out, the cheaper they can offer their Invisalign product. So a boutique dentist that doesn’t treat many Invisalign patients is likely to charge a lot more than a dentist seeing plenty of Invisalign patients.

How much does Invisalign treatment cost in the UK?

The final cost of your Invisalign treatment will vary depending on the severity of your case and how you would like to straighten your teeth. The average cost for a full case of aligners for your top and bottom teeth starts at around £3,500.

Your final cost could be a little more expensive if your treatment lasts longer, or if you need specialist considerations, such as precision wings or attachments. If you require more dental checkups, this can also increase the final cost of your treatment.

There are also factors that can make your treatment cheaper. You could opt to only straighten the top or bottom arch, depending on which bothers you the most. You could also choose an express system that focuses on the top front teeth that are visible when you smile. This will be a much simpler treatment plan, and therefore the cost will be much lower.

Added benefits of Invisalign treatment

Added benefits of Invisalign treatment

Dentists are often bound by the pricing structure set by Invisalign, so they cannot offer Invisalign for a cheaper price. However, they can offer extra add ons that will increase the value of your Invisalign treatment. Common perks include:

  • Free dental hygienist treatments at the start and/or end of your treatment

  • Free teeth whitening at the end of treatment

  • Free retainers to keep your teeth looking beautiful and straight at the end of treatment

Make treatment more affordable with a payment plan

Another way that dentists can help to make Invisalign more attractive and affordable is to offer a payment plan. While you might not be able to get this treatment on the NHS, you can spread the cost of your treatment to avoid having to part with a lump sum to start your treatment. This is an ideal way to manage the cost of your treatment and split it into affordable monthly repayments.

It’s important to note that Invisalign is not like mail order aligner companies that have made the headlines recently. This is a dentist-led treatment, so there is no risk of the company going bust and failing to provide your aligners, or leaving you without support in the middle of your treatment plan.

Final thoughts

While Invisalign might not be available on the NHS, there are ways to make sure you get more value from your treatment, or spread the cost of your treatment to make it more affordable. It would be impossible to say how much your Invisalign treatment will cost, as every patient is unique, but the average treatment starts at around £3,500.
