Invisalign: How Long Does It Take?


Invisalign is one of our favourite dental treatments. And there’s no surprise – it can transform your teeth, giving you a uniform smile while correcting issues like crowding, overbite and poor oral hygiene.

At Stella Dental, your Stafford dental practice, our team of expert dentists has carried out countless Invisalign braces transformations. And we’d love to do the same for you. So, if you’re still on the fence, weighing up your decision or simply trying to find out more, read on – this blog is for you.


What is Invisalign?

It’s a clear, removable brace treatment for teens and adults. It works through a series of plastic trays that straighten teeth little by little. These trays are made from comfortable and clear acrylic, and it’s all done by computer to ensure your treatment stays on track.


How does the scanner work?

We use an iTero Scanner to take digital impressions of your teeth. The computer software then shows the repositioning needed to achieve your desired smile and makes the aligners according to these movements. Invisalign can even show you your expected result.


How long does Invisalign take?

The scans and software are covered early on in your treatment so that the aligners can be made and you can get wearing them quickly. You’ll also need a consultation to check the treatment is suitable for your needs. Once this is all out of the way, the real journey begins. Anticipated treatment time varies, from 6 months or so to around 24 months. It depends on the individual case.
