Invisalign is the invisable way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. And it’s been proven effective in both clinical research and in practices nationwide. So whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you’ll have a new reason to smile.
Dental Options are part of the Clearbraces.ie group. The Clear Braces group was established by the most experienced providers of Invisalign in Ireland.

Invisalign is leading the way in advances in cosmetic dentistry technology. A virtually invisible way to straighten teeth, Invisalign uses a series of removable, see through aligners that have been specially created to perfectly fit your teeth and gradually, comfortably straighten them. Invisalign does this using the latest advances in dental technology, including computer imaging and 3-D design in order to create aligners that perfectly fit your teeth and your treatment needs.
If you are interested, then you can consult your dentist for more details. Your dentist will decide during this initial examination whether Invisalign will be right for you and your teeth. If you both agree, your dentist will write up a treatment plan for what you want to achieve and take impressions and photographs of your teeth. These are sent to Invisalign’s state of the art laboratories. There, Invisalign’s technicians and experts will translate your dentist’s plan into a series of precise custom aligners. Each set is worn for around two weeks before being replaced with another bespoke set, each aligner gradually straightening your teeth until you achieve your intended result.
At Dental Options we are one of the only practices in the country with an Itero scanner. What makes the Itero Digital Scanner different? It scans your teeth and then creates a 3D visual graphic of what your teeth would look like if you decided to straighten them. For patients who are confused about the benefits of orthodontics, this service, which is free of charge for them, it is an absolutely fantastic tool in helping patients to make an informed decision.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Invisalign Work?
Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign translates your doctor’s instructions into a series of nearly undetectable aligners. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, millimeter by millimeter until you’ve achieved the desired result.
How Often Will I Have To Wear My Aligners?
Invisalign only works while you’re wearing the aligners. It’s recommended that you wear your aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush and floss your teeth – or as directed by your doctor.
Is Invisalign Effective?
Thousands of doctors are treating patients with Invisalign. It works for a wide range of people whose teeth are too crowded or have spaces between them, as well as for those whose teeth may have shifted after having worn braces in their youth.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
The duration of treatment depends on the severity of your case, which determines the number of aligners you need. However, the average is about 12 months, but only your doctor can determine the length of your treatment.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
As with traditional braces, the cost will be based on the complexity of your case and the length of treatment. Many doctors charge the same for Invisalign as they do for traditional braces. Also, if your dental insurance plan covers traditional braces, it will typically cover Invisalign to the same extent.
