Invisalign: orthodontic treatment that fits around your lifestyle

Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most popular alternatives to braces at Weybridge dental practice Surrey Braces. They can be used to correct a number of orthodontic conditions, whilst having minimal impact on your lifestyle.

invisalignThe growing demand for straighter teeth

More and more adults in the UK are seeking orthodontic treatment. Whether you missed out on treatment as a teenager, or you had treatment only to discover that your teeth have moved back to their original position, if the alignment of your teeth is making you unhappy we invite you to join us at our Weybridge dental practice for a consultation.

Straightening your teeth with products such as Invisalign has more than just cosmetic benefits. It is easier to keep your teeth clean if they are properly aligned, because there are fewer gaps in which food particles can get trapped and dental plaque can build up. Therefore, with regular visits to your dentist and a good oral care routine at home, straightening your teeth can reduce your chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign comprises a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, guiding them gently into an improved position.

Because they are clear, Invisalign treatment is invisible to the untrained eye in daily life, and because they are removable they have minimal impact on your lifestyle. You can remove them for short periods to clean and to brush/floss your teeth, as well as to eat and drink.

Invisalign consultations in Weybridge

When you come to our Weybridge practice for a consultation, we will assess if Invisalign is the best treatment for you. Impressions will be taken of your teeth, and we will use 3D imaging technology to show you what results to expect before starting treatment.

The number of aligners required will depend upon the amount and type of correction needed.

Invisalign: the benefits of aligner treatment

Invisalign clear aligners are just one of the teeth-straightening treatment options available at our Weybridge orthodontic clinic. They offer a number of benefits in addition to straighter teeth, including making dental hygiene a breeze during treatment and having minimal impact on your lifestyle.

invisalign-weybridgeWhy you should consider orthodontic treatment

As well as causing embarrassment when smiling – which can have a negative impact on your self-esteem, personal and business relationships – crooked and misaligned teeth are also more difficult to clean, as food particles can get trapped in gaps, leading to a build-up of dental plaque, which increases your chances of developing gum disease or tooth decay. By using aligners such as Invisalign, or tooth-coloured braces, to straighten your teeth, you can help to improve your dental health.

Why choose Invisalign?

When you come to our Weybridge practice for a consultation with an orthodontist, they will undertake a careful examination of your teeth and gums to assess the type and amount of correction you require.

Invisalign can be used to correct a range of mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Treatment involves using a series of clear aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth to gently guide them into an improved position. The exact number of aligners required, and the length of your treatment, varies from case to case, and will be discussed by your orthodontist at the outset of treatment.

Because they are removable, Invisalign aligners have minimal impact on your lifestyle. Of course, you should still wear them most of the time to ensure swift and effective treatment, but you can take them out for short periods – helping to avoid the dental hygiene difficulties sometimes associated with braces.

Invisalign is just one of the discreet orthodontic options available at our Weybridge clinic, so even if they are not the best option in your case, we will find an appropriate subtle method of teeth straightening.

How Invisalign can straighten your teeth without impacting on your lifestyle

Invisalign is one of the most popular alternatives to traditional metal braces for patients who want straighter teeth. At Surrey Braces, Weybridge, it is just one of the many discreet orthodontics options available.

How Invisalign differs from standard braces

invisalignThe Invisalign system has been designed with both discretion and convenience at its heart. Many patients tell their dentist or orthodontist that they would love to straighten their teeth, but have no desire to wear standard braces because they are very obvious and not always compatible with a professional adult’s lifestyle.

At our Weybridge dental and orthodontic practice we fully empathise with this predicament, while also knowing the benefits orthodontic treatment can have on your self-esteem, dental and general health.

We believe that our patients should have access to the most reliable and effective solutions to their dental health concerns, and have found that Invisalign is an excellent option in many cases.

Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that fit comfortably over the teeth and gradually move them into an improved position. Unlike traditional braces, the aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and drink, to clean, and to brush your teeth. This, combined with their near invisibility, means that they have minimal impact on your lifestyle, as well as making maintaining good dental hygiene during treatment as easy as brushing your teeth, with no need for specialist techniques to clean around your braces.

How treatment works

We welcome patients from Weybridge and beyond for Invisalign treatment. If your orthodontist agrees this is the best option for you, they will take impressions of your teeth so that your bespoke set of aligners can be created.

You will be given a series of aligners, which you change every few weeks as your teeth move. The exact number of aligners will be discussed at your initial consultation.

Invisalign: a clear alternative to standard braces

Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most popular ways for teenagers and adults to straighten their teeth. They are just one of the discreet orthodontic devices offered by Surrey Braces in Weybridge, and can correct mild to moderate issues with the alignment of teeth.

More options than braces

invisalignThink orthodontics, and most people still picture traditional metal wire and bracket braces. Whilst these remain one of the most effective ways to correct problems with the alignment of teeth and with the bite (how the jaws meet together), and whilst they are still popular with teenagers thanks to the customisation options now available, at our Weybridge dental centre we appreciate that they do not always sit comfortably with a professional adult’s lifestyle.

There have been many great advances in the field of orthodontics in the past few decades, with discreet orthodontics one of the fastest growing areas of modern dentistry. We are proud to offer a number of discreet choices at our Weybridge dental clinic, with something to suit all needs. Invisalign is one of the most popular options, because as well as being discreet it fits around your lifestyle.

How it works

Invisalign comprises a series of removable clear aligners that fit snuggly over your teeth and gently guide them into a new position. When you come into our Weybridge clinic for a consultation, your dentist or orthodontist will carefully examine you and will find out what you want to achieve from treatment, to establish whether these aligners are the most appropriate treatment option for you.

Thanks to the latest computer software, your Invisalign provider will be able to show you exactly what results you can expect from treatment, with the aid of impressions, photographs and 3D modelling.

The exact number of aligners varies from patient to patient and will be established when you come into our Weybridge practice for your initial consultation. You will need to change your aligner every couple of weeks as advised by your orthodontist.

Invisalign: straighter teeth without a metallic glint on show

At Surrey Braces in Weybridge, Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most popular methods for patients to straighten their teeth.

What is Invisalign?

weybridgeorthodonticsInvisalign is a system of clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and gently move them into a better position. Each set of aligners is custom-made following a detailed consultation at our Weybridge dental practice, so you can be sure that your aligners will fit your teeth perfectly.

Before starting treatment, your dentist will take a series of impressions and photographs and, with the aid of our state-of-the-art computer software, they will be able to show you what results you can expect.

Every patient’s needs will be slightly different, so the number of aligners you will require, and the length of your treatment, will depend on your individual circumstances. Your dentist or orthodontist will be able to advise you of this at the start of treatment.

As your teeth begin to move, you will need to change your aligner every two weeks or so. You will also need to come in for a check-up every few weeks at our Weybridge clinic so that we can check your treatment is progressing as planned. At the end of treatment, you will need to wear a retainer.

What are the advantages of treatment with Invisalign?

The most obvious advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners are clear, meaning that nobody will notice them in everyday life and no-one need know you are having treatment unless you choose to tell them.

Another big advantage is that the aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and drink, to clean, and to brush your teeth.

Why Invisalign is “clearly” a market leader in discreet orthodontics

They are just one of the discreet orthodontic options available at Weybridge’s Surrey Braces, and we are certain that whatever your treatment requirements, we will find the perfect appliance to straighten your teeth without anyone needing to know about it – unless you choose to tell them.

What is Invisalign used for?

surreybracesInvisalign can be used to treat a number of mild to moderate orthodontic problems, including crooked, crowded, and poorly aligned teeth. Treatment times will vary depending on the type and amount of correction that is required, and will be discussed by your orthodontist when first you come into our Weybridge dental practice for your consultation.

How the treatment process works

Every set of Invisalign aligners is custom-made to suit each patient’s individual needs, and to fit snuggly over their teeth. The aligners gently guide your teeth into a new position, and you will need to change your aligner every two weeks or so as your teeth begin to move – as often as your dentist or orthodontist advises.

The number of aligners required to complete treatment varies from patient to patient. When you come to our Weybridge dental practice for your initial Invisalign consultation, you will be advised of how many aligners you will need.

Your consultation

Impressions will be taken of your teeth and, with the aid of photographs and advanced computer software, your practitioner will be able to show you the expected results from the outset.

If you opt to go ahead with treatment, your aligners will be made up and when they are ready you will be called back to our Weybridge practice to start treatment.

Invisalign Does More Than Just Straightening Your Teeth

Many go for Invisalign treatment to look good rather than have better dental health. While looking and feeling good are obvious advantages of the treatment, there is more to Invisalign than meets the eye.

weybridge orthodoticsComfort is another plus factor for Invisalign, as you can be assured that the treatment won’t cause you any discomfort. But, did you know that it can also improve your overall oral health? Our Invisalign treatments give you aligners which are made only for your teeth. The aligners follow your teeth’s changing positions, making sure they gradually align to the prescribed position. We all know that straight teeth help improve dental health. But, using the right treatment allows you to keep your mouth healthy while straightening your teeth.

Invisalign Aligners are Easy to Clean

Invisalign braces are clipped to the teeth, and they are removable. When eating or drinking, you can do without the mouthpiece and not worry about food staining the trays. Cleaning them is a lot like cleaning your own teeth. You just brush them and put them in lukewarm water to kill bacteria. Some dentists recommend Invisalign cleaning system, which only takes a few minutes to remove plaque and bacteria from aligners.

Invisalign Lets You Clean Your Teeth Thoroughly

Invisalign braces are removable. That means you can brush and floss like you normally do, since they do not keep you from doing so. During orthodontic cleaning, teeth and gums are not hard to reach. Thus, they are cleaned better. Oral problems such as gingivitis and loose teeth are caused by bacteria and plaque build up. Wearing metal braces may cause them to worsen, as it is difficult to brush thoroughly with braces. Clearly, this is not the case with Invisalign.

Invisalign Helps Prevent Periodontal Problems

The root cause of periodontal diseases is improper dental hygiene. Gum problems from plaque build up may cause teeth to rot and fall out, and gums to bleed. Invisalign lets you take proper care of both your aligners and your teeth, preventing you from having oral diseases.

Crooked teeth also cause serious dental problems, all because they are impossible to clean thoroughly. Invisalign gives you straight and easy-to-clean teeth.

Healthy oral condition comes from proper hygiene and tooth position. Invisalign enables you to have both. Considering Invisalign treatment? Here at Surrey Braces Ltd., we offer Invisalign treatment in Weybridge. You may contact us for inquiries and more details.

How it works: the Invisalign clear aligner system explained

Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most popular ways for patients to straighten their teeth here at Weybridge Orthodontics. The system has several advantages: the aligners are almost invisible, meaning few people will notice you are wearing them. There is no metal in the aligners and no tightening involved in treatment, maximising comfort levels. The aligners are also removable, so you can take them out to eat and drink, to brush your teeth and to clean.

Is Invisalign the right treatment for me?

invisalign systemThe Invisalign system can be used to treat a range of orthodontic conditions. If you are interested in this treatment, you should book a consultation with one of our experienced orthodontists here at our Weybridge clinic. They will carefully examine your mouth to learn more about your dental situation, and will establish whether you are a suitable candidate for this treatment.

Step by step

If your orthodontist decides Invisalign will work well for you, they will start the initial phases of treatment.

Step 1

Your orthodontist will first take impressions of your teeth, and will send these to the Invisalign laboratory in the USA.

Step 2

You will be called back to our Weybridge clinic approximately three weeks later. This is for a clinical check. Using special software your orthodontist will demonstrate a virtual 3D treatment plan, enabling you to see how your teeth are expected to move during treatment, and what the end results will be.

Step 3

So long as you are happy with the clinical check results, you will be asked for a deposit and your Invisalign aligners will be manufactured. Weybridge Orthodontics offers payment plans of between 18 and 24 months, enabling you to spread the cost of treatment.

Step 4

When your aligners are ready, you’ll be called back to our Weybridge practice and your first aligner will be fitted. You should change aligners approximately every two weeks, and will have periodic check-ups during treatment.

Straighten your teeth discreetly with Invisalign

Adult orthodontics patients who want to straighten their teeth may be interested in treatment with Invisalign clear aligners. At our Weybridge orthodontic practice, these aligners are just one of the systems we use to straighten people’s teeth using discreet orthodontics.

teeth discreetly with invisalignStraighter teeth are top of the wish list for many adults when asked what they would like to change about their smile. However, many are put off seeking orthodontic treatment because they wrongly think it will mean wearing obvious metal braces for a considerable period of time.

At Weybridge Orthodontics we are keen to point out that this doesn’t have to be the case. Many tooth-straightening systems are now invisible or almost invisible. Invisalign is one of the most popular choices for adult patients here in Weybridge.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign comprises a series of near-invisible clear aligners that fit precisely over your teeth to gently move them into a more desirable position. Each set of aligners is custom-designed to fit your teeth exactly. You will need to change your aligner every two weeks or so as your teeth start to move.

What are the advantages of this system over other treatment options?

We’ve already touched upon one of the major advantages of Invisalign – the fact that the aligners are nearly invisible, making this treatment highly discreet.

Another huge advantage is that the Invisalign aligners are removable. That means that you can take them out to eat and drink, to clean, and to brush your teeth. This helps to allay concerns about dental hygiene that some people have with braces, because unlike standard braces the aligners require no special cleaning techniques.

There is no metal in these aligners, which means there will be no discomfort from metal contacting the tongue or elsewhere inside the mouth. It also means the treatment is suitable for patients with metal allergies.

The Model’s Way to Photogenic Smiles

In a world of selfies and instant photo sharing platforms, a picture-perfect smile is your best asset.

photogenic smilesEveryone wants to look good in photos. Some may have difficulty flashing the camera a photogenic smile—you might be one of them. Fortunately, you need not be a professional model to achieve that glowing grin.

Flawlessly Natural Always Works

Scripted smiles do not have any place in your photographs. When it is time for a photo, just smile naturally. Do not overthink the way you should grin. Do so gently and in a relaxed manner. When you pressure yourself to come up with the perfect smile, chances are your smile will look put-on.

A natural smile is the complete opposite of a quick grin. You open your mouth slightly and the curve of your upper teeth matches your lower lip.

Ladies, Lipstick is Your Friend

For the women, lipstick enhances your already beautiful smile. Keep in mind that the right shade of lipstick makes your teeth appear whiter. To find the right one, choose the shade that works best with your skin tone. The wrong one, on the other hand, makes your smile less appealing.

Shades such as red wine, plum, rosy pink, wink or cherry are your best options. If you wish to hide yellow stains in your teeth, use pink-based or blue-based lipsticks.

Mind Your Teeth and Gums

The picture-perfect smile sometimes calls for a little behind-the-scene preparations with the help of the nearest dental practice. From Weybridge Invisalign aligners to whitening, your options are endless.

If your teeth are yellowing with age, in-clinic whitening from your dentist is the best solution. You can also correct your cracked, broken or chipped teeth with some implants or braces. Do not forget your gums as well. Keep them in good shape by maintaining good oral hygiene.

Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we can help you smile like models. Our services can transform your smile from a simple grin to a camera-ready beam. Book an appointment with us now and face the cameras with confidence.
