Could your smile do with some help?

If you have crooked, overcrowded or widely spaced teeth then you may find your heart sinking when you look in the mirror. Being unhappy with your appearance can really start to undermine your confidence and make interactions with others very awkward. Misaligned teeth can also affect your oral health as they are harder to clean and less stable. If you are an adult who missed out on corrective treatment as a child then you may have resigned yourself to living with uneven teeth if the thought of braces is unbearable. If this sounds like you then you may like to hear about Incognito. Weybridge Orthodontics is proud to offer this modern, invisible alternative to conventional braces.

Incognito in WeybridgeHow does Incognito in Weybridge work?

The Incognito brace is a fixed system in which the brackets, arch wires and bonding trays are attached to the back of your teeth. This means that they are totally invisible and only you need know that you are having treatment. They are individually made to fit your teeth and mouth precisely, using advanced techniques. A detailed consultation, including thorough measurements and the use of 3D imaging technology, enables us to create a unique prescription so that you get the results you want. This also allows you to see the predicted end results in advance. When you see what can be achieved, you will understand why so many people choose Incognito in Weybridge.

What are the advantages?

For our patients in Weybridge, Incognito braces have provided the opportunity to have straighter teeth without the procedure impinging on their lifestyle. Apart from being able to smile freely throughout your treatment, you will also find that the braces are very comfortable to wear. They are not removable, which ensures that they will be working 24 hours a day to help you achieve the smile of your dreams as quickly as possible. This also avoids the inconvenience of having to take them out for eating or cleaning.

See for yourself how using Incognito in Weybridge could give you the smile to be proud of without feeling self-conscious during treatment. Talk to us today about how you can improve your appearance and really have something to smile about.

The subtle way to enhance your smile

We all want a smile that we can share but crowded, overly spaced or misaligned teeth can detract from your appearance and have a big impact on your self-esteem. You may have considered corrective treatment but worried that metal braces are inconvenient, ugly or difficult to get used to. The good news is that there is a modern system which can straighten your teeth comfortably, effectively and unobtrusively. At Weybridge Orthodontics in Weybridge, Invisalign is a popular technique which we have used for many of our patients.

Invisalign in WeybridgeHow does it work?

An initial consultation allows us to assess the state of your mouth and take measurements. The Invisalign system uses a series of clear plastic trays or aligners which gently reposition your teeth. These are individually made to suit your mouth and you will be provided with a new set every two weeks. This is so they adapt to the changing position of your teeth and continue to guide them into the right place. We use 3D computer modelling which allows the aligners to be made precisely and means that you can see the predicted results in advance. You can try Invisalign in Weybridge and see for yourself why so many people have loved using this method.

What are the advantages?

We use Invisalign in Weybridge for mild to moderate cases where there is no severe crowding or need for teeth to be removed. The process is very comfortable and discreet, with no invasive procedures. The clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible and you can take them out for eating and cleaning so they do not interfere with daily life. As they are individually made for each person out of smooth plastic, they fit without rubbing and ensure that the teeth move in exactly the right way. When your teeth are how they should be, you will continue to wear retainers at night to make sure they stay in place so you can enjoy your new smile into the future.

Straighten your teeth invisibly with Incognito in Weybridge

Want to straighten your teeth but dread the thought of wearing metal braces? At Weybridge Orthodontics, we understand that some people do not want to commit to braces because they are worried about the appearance of their smile during treatment.

Luckily, there is an alternative option available that allows you to receive the benefits of braces without anyone ever knowing you are wearing them – Incognito. Hidden on the back of your teeth, Incognito in Weybridge provides you with the treatment results you want without the cosmetic distraction of traditional metal braces. Especially popular with working professionals and self-conscious adults, these lingual braces will have little effect on your lifestyle, but will still deliver visibly straighter teeth.

Incognito in WeybridgeHow do Incognito braces work?

Unlike traditional metal braces, which are placed on the fronts of your teeth, Incognito braces consist of nickel brackets and wires attached to the backs of your teeth, where they are virtually invisible from view.

Incognito braces are custom-made for each of your teeth using modern dental technology. First, your dentist will create a mould or impression of your teeth and send this to a special laboratory. Your braces will be made with the aid of digital 3D technology. Once ready, your dentist will fix them securely to the backs of your teeth.

Incognito braces work in the same way as traditional braces, however, their archwires and brackets are ‘self-ligating’. This means added comfort and ease of movement throughout your treatment.

Benefits of Incognito braces

Understandably, the most important advantage of Incognito lingual braces is their subtle nature. What’s more their flat finish makes them more comfortable to wear than traditional metal braces.

Lingual braces also better protect your teeth while straightening them. The area behind your teeth loses less calcium and is less prone to cavities and plaque build-up. This is what makes lingual braces better for your dental health during treatment, when compared with traditional braces.

Finally, unlike other discreet teeth straightening options, Incognito braces are suitable for more severe types of misalignment that require substantial tooth movement. This treatment is suitable for children, adults or older people who wish to straighten their teeth discreetly. Odds are, if you can have metal braces, you are a good candidate for Incognito in Weybridge.

Get straight teeth in secret with orthodontics in Weybridge

Many adults and older teenagers who have never had braces think that it is now too late for them. Others are reluctant to wear metal braces for 2 or more years. Truth is that you can still have a beautiful smile with a straight set of teeth through discreet orthodontics in Weybridge.

Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign aligners and Incognito lingual braces for patients who want to have their teeth straightened without the hassle of traditional braces. Our experienced dentist will examine your teeth thoroughly and help you decide which option is the best for you.

Orthodontics in WeybridgeIncognito lingual braces

Incognito fixed braces are placed on the backs of your teeth where they are hidden from view. Just like traditional braces, they can treat a number of dental and bite problems within the same amount of time metal braces would. Incognito braces are customised to fit your individual teeth.

Your braces are made in a special laboratory based on teeth impressions our dentist will make. They are crafted with the help of 3D computer technology. Once ready, our dentist ill fix them in place on the backs of your teeth and you’ll be on your way to a beautiful smile.

Invisalign aligners

Invisalign straightens teeth by using removable and almost invisible aligners, which are made specifically for your teeth. Each aligner is replaced every 2 weeks to gently and gradually move your teeth into their straightened positions. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners have no wires or metal brackets. Instead, our dentist controls the timing and amount of movement of your teeth through the use of the series of specially designed aligners – each shaped a little differently to push your teeth that bit further.

Invisalign aligners can treat many different dental problems but they may not be your best option if you have severely misaligned teeth.

Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear, barely noticeable and can be removed for eating and cleaning your teeth. However, you must wear them for at least 22 hours per day for effective treatment. The average treatment time is 14 months, though each patient is different.

Are you planning to go Incognito in Weybridge?

The British Orthodontics Society estimates that about 75% of all adults would benefit from some form of orthodontic treatment. If you are one of that 75% and would like to improve the appearance of your teeth, but are put off by the thought of wearing a standard train-track brace with a mouth full of metal and wires, you are not alone. For most adults, the idea of having to wear a brace is unthinkable and so many of us resign ourselves to living with gappy, crooked or uneven teeth.

Incognito Braces in WeybridgeThankfully innovation and technology are always pushing the boundaries of what is possible, and now braces have evolved into something that even the Duchess of Cambridge feels she can wear. The braces in question are known as lingual braces which are fitted to the backs of the teeth instead of the fronts, which means that they are exceedingly discreet, good enough for a princess in fact. Here at our practice in Weybridge, Incognito braces are being used to help many of our adult patients to achieve a smile that they once believed could only be possible in a fairy tale.

Magically transform your smile

Although you and your orthodontist will know you’re wearing braces, no-one else should be able to spot them. Even though it has been revealed that the Duchess of Cambridge has used this system, much of the discussion is based on the gradual change to the appearance of her teeth from the time that she and Prince William became an item. After all when you are one of the most photographed women in the world, someone is bound to notice the changes. Fortunately, very few of us are subject to the same amount of scrutiny as Catherine and so you can feel confident that all anyone will notice is your lovely smile.

One of the most important differences between lingual braces and cosmetic braces is that lingual braces can correct a much wider range of orthodontic issues. If you’re ready to discover the smile of your dreams, make an appointment and come and talk to one of our dedicated team of orthodontists and find out more about going Incognito in Weybridge.

Coming straight to the point about Invisalign in Weybridge

There is no doubt that a crooked, gappy smile or protruding teeth affect how you look, how you feel, and sometimes even how people treat you. Perhaps you received some orthodontic treatment as a child. More than 200,000 children and teenagers are fitted with braces each year; however it is estimated that three quarters of all adults would still benefit from some form of orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign in WeybridgeFixed or removable braces improve the function as well as the aesthetic appearance of crooked teeth. They can also be used to realign teeth that contain gaps or are crowded. A brace straightens teeth by gradually moving teeth into the correct position using a small, sustained force in the direction that they need to move. The main problems with fixed braces, especially those fitted to the front of your teeth is that they are rather obtrusive, and may need to be worn for a year or more.

Invisalign, clearly different

For many adults, the prospect of fixed braces is off-putting; after all there are some aspects of our lives that are better left unshared. What makes the Invisalign system different is that the aligners are both clear, and removable. These are advantages that make them a very popular choice with many of our patients here in Weybridge. Invisalign retainers can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic issues discreetly and effectively. Because they are removable, these aligners make eating and oral health care much easier than it is with a fixed brace.

The Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made aligners, which are manufactured at the start of your treatment. Each aligner must be worn for a minimum of 20 hours each day, and the aligners are changed once every two weeks. Because they are not fixed to your teeth, the aligners are a less invasive treatment than fixed braces.

You will need to see your orthodontist for check-ups during your treatment to ensure that everything is going to plan, but you could find yourself enjoying a straighter, healthier smile in as little as six months, depending on the complexity of your case. To find out more, book a consultation at our practice in Weybridge, Invisalign retainers may be just what you’re looking for.

Going Incognito in Weybridge

Many adults would love to have straighter teeth, but are understandably reluctant to wear normal braces. These are the type, worn by many teenagers, that are fitted to the fronts of your teeth. They are obtrusive and hard to ignore. As dentists, we can appreciate this is a problem for many people, which is why we offer many of our patients a range of discreet orthodontic alternatives, including Incognito lingual braces.

Incognito in WeybridgeUnlike other types of hidden or invisible orthodontic treatments, Incognito lingual braces can be used to correct a wide range of orthodontic problems from mild misalignment and more serious orthodontic issues, through to problems with your bite that can result in uneven wear and tear on individual teeth due to the incorrect distribution of pressure on individual teeth.

What’s so different about Incognito braces?

Incognito braces are also known as lingual braces, and consist of a fully customised bracket system which is fitted to the backs of your teeth instead of the fronts. All parts of these braces are custom-made and are designed to deliver an effective, targeted result without the need for an intrusive mouth full of metal for months or years on end.

Using the latest 3D imaging technology here at our practice in Weybridge, Incognito lingual braces are made just for you. Your appliance is custom-designed, and you will be able to see what you can expect your teeth to look like after the treatment from the very start of the process. As with any orthodontic treatment, you will find wearing a brace a little strange for a while. Sometimes it can take a bit longer to become accustomed to wearing a lingual brace than a standard type, but after a few days you will almost forget that you are wearing them.

As with any orthodontic treatment, it is essential that you pay particular attention to your dental hygiene and you should speak to your hygienist about a bespoke cleaning routine during your treatment. If you are looking for a way to achieve straighter teeth, but would prefer to keep the secret of your smile to yourself, you may find that lingual braces are the solution that you have been looking for, you may just find yourself going Incognito in Weybridge.

Weybridge Orthodontics, providing orthodontics in Weybridge

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the proper development of the face, as well as the jaws and teeth. To function properly, and also look aesthetically pleasing, your teeth need to be straight and well aligned. In most cases, this is achieved using either fixed braces or clear, removable aligners. While any dentist can provide orthodontic treatments; a specialist orthodontist will have trained first as a dentist, and then undertaken an additional three years of post-graduate training to become a fully qualified orthodontist.

During this training, they will have gained the necessary experience by working in maxillofacial surgery and restorative and paediatric dentistry. This specialised training is undertaken in hospitals linked to university schools of dentistry and is a full time commitment. During their training an orthodontic specialist will learn the theories of orthodontics and build their experience by treating members of the public.

Orthodontics in WeybridgeOrthodontics for all

If you think that you are too long in the tooth to have straighter teeth, you may be pleasantly surprised to find out that you are wrong. While most of us are familiar with the traditional orthodontic treatments for children and teenagers using fixed train-track braces on the fronts of their teeth, hopefully you will be less familiar with many types of braces designed for adults. The reason I say this is because the range of braces available now has increased dramatically in the past few years. Now there are braces designed to fit a wide range of orthodontic needs for adults.

In many cases as an adult, you may find that you only need to have your front teeth straightened. This means that you could look forward to having a straighter smile in just six months. Of course, this does depend on the complexity of your orthodontic requirements. In some cases, you will need a longer treatment if there are more serious issues with the alignment and your bite.

The clue is in the name

As you might expect, here at our practice in Weybridge, orthodontics are what we do. Almost all of the members of our team are all qualified in various aspects of this type of work, and we are committed to providing you a first class orthodontic treatment.

Get new teeth and a new waistline

If you are thinking about investing in teeth straightening in Weybridge, Invisalign is one of the systems you may be thinking about.

In Weybridge, Invisalign teeth aligners are available from Weybridge Orthodontics.

Invisalign is proving to be increasingly popular among adults and teenagers who do not need to have major corrections to their bite and therefore do not qualify for NHS treatment. It works differently from other kinds of braces and it has different benefits.

Invisalign in WeybridgeHow does it work?

Invisalign uses clear, rigid acrylic moulds or aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and gently push them into their desired positions. You wear between 12 and 48 of these aligners, each one brings you one step closer to your final outcome. Each aligner is worn for about 2 weeks before you move on to the next one.

One thing that many people like about Invisalign is that they are so clear and thin, at just 0.3 millimetres thick, that they are almost invisible. Another aspect of Invisalign that not so many people mention is that wearing them can inadvertently help you lose weight.

The Invisalign diet?

In order for Invisalign aligners to work effectively and to schedule, you have to wear them for at least 22 hours a day. This leaves just enough time for you to remove your aligner, clean it and carefully place it in its case before you eat, floss and brush your teeth.

Other than that, you really need to keep them in your mouth or you could end up wearing them for much longer than expected.

With the goal of straighter teeth and the need to wear Invisalign for 22 hours a day, plus the added requirement of removal and cleaning, you may find it easier to resist that leftover birthday cake in the office. Keeping trim may also be easier because you’ll switch to drinking mostly water, rather than tea and coffee with added sugar and milk, which can stain your aligner and so make it more visible.

If you google Invisalign diet, you will find it mentioned in several blogs. Of course, it’s an unintentional side effect of choosing Invisalign in Weybridge, but it’s worth knowing about and perhaps taking advantage of.

Invisalign in Weybridge – invisible braces bring visible results

Are you self-conscious about your smile but reluctant to wear braces because of cosmetic reasons? For some people, a less than perfect smile is nothing to worry about, but for others it can knock their self-esteem. As an adult, you may have put off teeth straightening treatment because you can’t face the thought of months in a row wearing metal braces, or perhaps you feel the costs cannot be justified.

That is why, here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign – an affordable, safe, and effective alternative to metal braces, which has minimal impact on your lifestyle.

Invisalign in WeybridgeWhat is Invisalign?

Invisalign employs 3D computer technology to create transparent, plastic removable aligners. These move your teeth at a rate similar to traditional braces, but without any metal or wires. The invisible braces are entirely custom-made and can be removed to eat and clean your teeth.

Invisalign aligners are made of transparent plastic, so they are generally unnoticeable when worn. Using computer imaging technology, your dentist in Weybridge can develop a personalised treatment plan for you to shift your teeth into the necessary positions and give you back confident smile.  based This imaging technology helps create your series of custom-made aligners, which have to be worn for about 2 weeks, before being replaced by the next in the series.

Although each case is unique, the usual treatment plan for adults who opt for Invisalign in Weybridge typically lasts for a year, using an average of 18 to 30 aligner trays throughout the treatment.

Am I eligible for Invisalign?

Generally, Invisalign is suitable for most patients with healthy teeth and gums. Invisalign can correct common dental issues such as crooked teeth, gappy and crowded teeth, as well as misaligned bites. However if you need to correct more severe jaw problems, your Weybridge dentist will likely recommend another treatment option.

Ideally, patients who pursue Invisalign should have good self-discipline. Invisalign is removable, but to work effectively, the aligners must be worn between 20 and 22 hours per day.
