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.
