How do Invisalign in Weybridge compare to conventional metal braces?

Invisalign is often considered by many patients as an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces. They are essentially clear aligner dental trays which consist of a plastic transparent material, working by slowly encouraging the teeth to move in a positive, and therefore straighter position within the mouth. Invisalign has risen greatly in popularity within recent years, due to its aesthetically pleasing physical appearance, as well as the long lasting (and of course rapid) dental results.


The ways in which they differ…

Individuals who are looking at receiving any form of orthodontic work may be considering various options, and may therefore be interested in the differences between modern orthodontics. Both traditional metal braces and Invisalign in Weybridge strive for the same dental results, being a straighter and happier smile. However, they both work in different ways which will be explained below.

How they work

Traditional metal braces use a combination of metal brackets and wires to apply pressure on the misaligned teeth. They may be more suitable for more serious dental cases (such as severe overcrowding, overbites, and underbites).

The Invisalign in Weybridge treatment process

Invisalign produces effective dental results without the use of metal brackets and wires. The transparent plastic trays are replaced every several ways in order to slowly achieve the desired position of the teeth within the mouth.

How much does Invisalign in Weybridge cost?

This is a question we get asked frequently at our dental clinic, however the price may vary greatly depending on the dental surgery, in addition to the unique dental case (such as the severity). If you are interested in paying for your Invisalign treatment over the course of 18 or 24 months (interest free!) then you can use our online payment calculator to find the right monthly price and time period for you.

Can I pay for my clear aligners upfront?

Yes! Despite monthly payment plans working for many of our patients, many individuals may find it easier to pay for their Invisalign treatment upfront. This means they can enjoy the results of their treatment without having to worry about future payments.

Is Invisalign available under the national health service?

No! Unfortunately clear aligners are considered as ‘cosmetic dental care’ this is due to their invisible and therefore aesthetically pleasing physical appearance, (in comparison to traditional metal braces). Despite not being available under the national health service, our dental team always ensures our patients feel as comfortable as possible when paying for their chosen dental treatment, therefore finding a plan that works for them, and their financial position.
