For effectively invisible straightening.
Invisalign, as its name suggests, is a virtually invisible way to treat simple misalignment of the teeth. This clever system features a series of clear, custom-made aligners, which gradually move crooked teeth to a more pleasing position. Although Invisalign is not an orthodontic cure-all, it can achieve great results if only a few of your teeth are out of place and you have only mild bite related problems.
Thanks to its hardly visible appearance, Invisalign is particularly suitable for adults and older teens who may feel self-conscious about wearing fixed braces. The aligners can also be taken out for teeth cleaning, eating whatever you fancy and for those special occasions when you want to look your best (but make sure you pop them straight back in afterwards!).
- Barely visisble
- Can be taken out
- Designed just for you
- Thin and comfortable
- Our first job is to work out if your problem can be treated successfully with Invisalign. If so, we will collect a wealth of information about your teeth, which will include taking impressions and photographs. .
- We then use advanced 3D technology to create a personalised plan, which details how your teeth will move and what they will look like at the end of the treatment process..
- When your specially produced aligners are ready to go, you will wear a different one every two weeks until your teeth are moved to an improved position.
- Treatment times will vary, depending on your case, but most problems are rectified within 6-12 months.
Brace extra bits
It may feel a little uncomfortable when you wear a fresh aligner, but this is normally just a feeling of pressure and a good sign your teeth are on the move.
Even though Invisalign aligners are fully removable, they should be worn for at least 22 hours a day to ensure the quickest, most effective results.
Keep your smile straight
Don’t forget, you will need to wear a retainer following any kind of treatment with braces to keep those straighter teeth in line.
