Do you want to help your child’s teeth grow into a perfect position and save all the stress and avoid the stigma around metal braces later in life?
Invisalign First is specially designed for little smiles, which aims to improve your child’s smile as they grow.
Using the latest materials and advanced technology, Invisalign First stops oral bite issues like overbites and overcrowding from overdeveloping.
If you want to keep your child’s smile on the right track, contact The Gentle Dental today (we’re Platinum Providers of Invisalign, which means we are part of a rare few who have treated the most cases of Invisalign in Europe).
The important bits: What parents need to know
- Invisalign First treats a wide variety of tooth alignment issues that are often seen in children, which range from complex issues like crowding, spacing, and narrow dental arches.
- The aligners are invisible and removable, which means your little ones will experience minimal disruption to their routines or daily life.
- There’s no need for brackets or wires, Invisalign is made from high-grade plastic that is very comfortable.
- Invisalign First is targeted at children’s growing teeth so they can be protected and guided into their correct position.
- They come with blue dot indicators that will help you gauge the wearing time of the aligners.
Your local Invisalign dentist knows best
The best place to begin with this journey is with an accredited provider of this treatment.
So, when it comes to finding the right Invisalign doctor, you’ll want to choose an orthodontist with many years of experience, and one that has achieved great results for hundreds of cases.
How can you tell which Invisalign dentist is the best? The level of the provider will quickly show you which dentist has invested the most time, practice, and dedication to the treatment.
We’re almost a Diamond Provider of Invisalign, so you can trust that you are in safe hands with us.

There are many common stipulations and misconceptions surrounding the Invisalign treatment.
For example, many think that it can only treat minor cases (not true) and that is so much more expensive than conventional braces (again, not true).
Invisalign First: From £2,500
Invisalign Teen: From 3,000
Invisalign: From £3,000
Invisalign Go: From £2,500
As Invisalign is not available or free via the NHS, patients can either chose to pay upfront or in interest-free monthly instalments.
Interest-free monthly payment plans can be arranged very easily and can start as little as £80 a month.
Invisalign can also be paid for with dental insurance, although we recommend checking with your provider if this treatment is covered.
What do you get with Invisalign?
The Gentle Dental calculates the following into the cost:
- Other corrective work like teeth whitening or cosmetic bonding (however, this is more viable for our teen and adult cases – Invisalign First will concentrate only on alignment).
- iTero Scan worth hundreds of pounds
- Your entire set of clear and removable aligners
- Vivera retainers
- All your appointments and check-ups
It only takes 2 minutes to apply and you’ll get an answer immediately – applying for a loan has never been easier.
0% finance is available for many treatments up to £30,000. Credit decisions will be subject to individual circumstances. You must be over 18 and earn an income to apply.
Your Invisalign journey
- The chance to go through your options and questions with an Invisalign co-ordinator
- Time with the expert orthodontist who will assess and examine the oral condition (consultations charged at £69)
- Impressions, X-rays, and scans were taken of the mouth to be uploaded digitally to Invisalign immediately upon agreement of the procedure (here you pay your deposit to secure the treatment, production, and dentist)
- Invisalign make and design your aligners and within just a few weeks they will arrive ready for your delivery appointment
- Next, you will be expected to pay your remaining fee and we will fit the aligners and book in your follow-up sessions. You will receive your first set, which you will need to swap out every few weeks or so
We will begin mapping out your Invis journey with a customised care plan that will be overseen by one of our Invisalign-trained doctors like Dr Ali Rifai.
Using hugely advanced technology like the iTero scanner, we are able to offer our patients peace of mind as they can go from imagining their dream smile to actually seeing it on the screen.
Not every dental practice can offer this, but we are proud to offer you this scan in an Invisalign consultation (worth £250) so we can map out your new smile and draw up a treatment plan that works for you.
