Are you 100% happy with the appearance of your teeth? If yes, then read no further. If the answer is no and you are looking for a discreet and effective way to straighten you teeth, the Invisalign system may be exactly what you are looking for. The Invisalign system uses a series of thin, clear, custom-made aligners that are designed to gently move your teeth into a new and straighter position. Here at our practice in Weybridge, Invisalign aligners are used for mild to moderate teeth straightening. These are cases where your teeth are not severely crowded and you do not need any teeth to be removed at the start of the treatment. One of the great things about this tooth straightening treatment is that you will have a clear idea of how your teeth will eventually look before your treatment even begins.
More than 4 million people around the world, including Tom Cruise and Oprah Winfrey, have used the Invisalign system to achieve a straighter, healthier smile. It is popular with people in the public eye because the aligners are virtually invisible, which means that you can carry on your daily life with no intrusive comments about your braces. Each aligner is made to move your teeth over a two week period, and needs to be worn for a minimum of 20 hours each day for maximum effect. You should only remove the aligners when you are eating, or cleaning your teeth and the aligners.
Not just straighter, but healthier too
Apart from making your teeth look better aesthetically, having straighter teeth and an even bite helps to ensure that your teeth remain healthier for longer too. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean and an even bite will ensure that there is no excessive pressure on individual teeth, which can cause long-term damage to them.
For many people in Weybridge, Invisalign aligners offer an effective, affordable and safe solution to teeth straightening, which allows them to achieve the smile they have dreamed of without having to wear fixed metal braces. Why not find out about the well kept Invisalign secret, the one that 4 million people now share.
Here at our practice in Weybridge, orthodontics are our passion and we offer a comprehensive range of orthodontic treatments for patients of all ages. Perhaps you may be wondering why your dentist has referred you to an orthodontist, as many dentists now offer orthodontic treatments themselves. The reason for your referral may be that the orthodontic treatment that you need is more complex and needs additional experience to ensure that you achieve the best results from your treatment. Most of the orthodontists at our practice have specialist orthodontic qualifications, having undergone a minimum of three additional years of specialist training in orthodontics. We are proud to say that several of our specialist orthodontists also act as consultants at eminent UK dental hospitals.
Leading the way with orthodontic therapists
We were one of the first orthodontic practices in the UK to train and employ a team of orthodontic therapists whose role it is to carry out some orthodontic procedures, such as cleaning and preparing the tooth surfaces ready for orthodontic treatment, taking impressions and the removal of fixed appliances and cement. Orthodontic therapists work under the supervision of a dentist who is usually an orthodontist.
Since opening this practice, we have treated many people who have needed orthodontics in Weybridge, and have created over 21,000 happy smiles so far. Although when you think about orthodontics, you may imagine that an orthodontist is only concerned with fitting braces and straightening teeth, but there is much more to orthodontics than meets the eye. An orthodontist is concerned with correcting the growth of teeth, jaw and face and this is why most major orthodontic work is carried out on children and teenagers while they are still growing.
Orthodontic treatments are now becoming more popular for adults and your treatment will differ in a number of ways from that of your children. Most of the orthodontic treatments for adults are generally for aesthetic purposes and often focus on just your front teeth. Although all orthodontic treatment to correct and realign your teeth will help with issues such as improved oral hygiene and more even wear on your teeth.
Do you want perfectly aligned teeth but would prefer to obtain them without broadcasting it to the world? At Weybridge Orthodontics, Incognito braces are an innovative product that will do just that. Discretion is the main aim for this modern alternative to the ‘in your face’ braces we are accustomed to seeing. Braces do not have to involve a mouth full of metal. You can now have the straight teeth you have always wanted without your work colleagues ever knowing you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment.
Living up to the name
Incognito braces are just that: incognito! It is a safe, comfortable, and discreet teeth straightening treatment that now available in the UK market. They are cleverly positioned on the backs of your teeth, so no-one will ever suspect that while you are chatting, smiling, eating, and carrying on with your day, your teeth are busy getting aligning. Incognito braces are uniquely crafted to the shape of each of your individual teeth. In Weybridge, Incognito braces are designed specifically to you to ensure your comfort during the treatment period and to provide reliable results. So if you want to have an effective, inconspicuous treatment that can improve both your smile and your confidence, it is worth exploring Incognito with one of our dentists at Weybridge Orthodontics.
How does it work?
When you decide to go with Incognito in Weybridge, we will use 3D imaging technology to obtain an accurate picture of how the final result will look. Our attention to detail means you will receive carefully planned treatment with custom-made braces, comprising archwires, brackets, and bonding trays. Incognito braces are fixed on the backs of your teeth for the duration of your treatment. This means you cannot remove them, which can take a little getting used to. However most patients adjust quite quickly to eating, drinking, and talking with their braces. After the treatment is completed, our dentist will carefully remove your braces so that you can start enjoying your new smile. So if you have been longing for beautifully straight teeth but have been too embarrassed to wear traditional fixed metal braces, try Incognito braces at Weybridge Orthodontics. We are waiting to enhance your smile.
Many people are put off having life-changing braces through fear of the upkeep, or the change in appearance and lifestyle during treatment. It is true that with a traditional fixed brace you may have to be careful with what you eat so as to not damage the braces. You also have to return to the dentist multiple times in a year for adjustments. Moreover, the whole course of treatment can take several years to complete in some cases. Fortunately, due to advances in technology, we have teeth straightening treatments that are faster, more comfortable and easier to fit into your lifestyle, such as Invisalign. In Weybridge at Weybridge Orthodontics we can offer this modern and clinically proven treatment to you today.
What is Invisalign in Weybridge all about?
Invisalign is a treatment that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to move your teeth little by little into their straightened positions. As the name suggests, Invisalign treatment is virtually undetectable, which is what often appeals to adults, especially those working in areas where appearances matter.
Each transparent aligner is custom-made to fit snugly around your teeth using 3D computer technology. The aligners are changed every 2 weeks, moving you along through the series until your teeth are re-aligned. The total number of aligners you will need depends on the extent of the misalignment of your teeth.
Due to their removable design, your usual oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing will be easy to maintain, so you don’t have to worry about your dental health suffering during your treatment. You can also enjoy mealtimes as normal by removing your aligners when you eat. However aligners should be worn for 20–22 hours a day for the treatment to be effective and run on schedule.
The benefits of straighter teeth
Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean, reducing your chances of gum disease and tooth decay. This means you’ll be spending less time visiting the dentist and more time showing off your new smile and enjoying the confidence boost that comes with it.
So if you are unhappy with your crooked teeth, then get in touch with us to find out about Invisalign in Weybridge.
All of us want those perfectly aligned teeth, but very few people are born with them. In recent years, adult interest in teeth straightening has significantly grown, however, not many adults like the idea of wearing traditional braces. Despite the fact that modern braces have come a long way and are now more lightweight and discreet than ever, there is no way to hide them and this can be negative for adult lifestyles.
At Weybridge Orthodontics, we are excited to be able to offer our adult and teenager patients an alternative to traditional braces with hidden lingual braces. With Incognito in Weybridge you can have your teeth straightened without anyone knowing. Lingual braces can achieve the same results as traditional braces in a discreet and effective way.
How does Incognito work?
As their name suggests, lingual braces are fitted to the back surface of your teeth above your tongue. Unlike regular braces, Incognito braces – the brand of lingual braces we use at Weybridge Orthodontics – are customised to the shape of your teeth and to your individual dental needs. This ensures the brackets of the braces fit perfectly against your teeth.
Once your braces are fitted, you many experience mild sensitivity or discomfort, but it will go away as soon as your mouth adjusts to them a few days later. Just like metal braces, lingual braces gradually move your teeth into their right position by applying constant pressure to your tooth roots.
Am I eligible for Incognito braces?
After your initial consultation and evaluation, our dentists will determine if lingual braces are the best method for straightening your teeth. The best thing about Incognito braces is that they can fix most of the same problems regular braces can fix, therefore, they are ideal for many people who wish to straighten their teeth and restore their bite discreetly. Incognito braces are also suitable for younger patients as well.
If you are interested in Incognito in Weybridge, we would be happy to discuss the treatment with you and answer any questions you many have. To get your treatment journey started, book a consultation with one of our friendly dentists and we look forward to seeing you soon.
If you never had the chance to straighten your teeth as a teenager, teeth straightening can offer many advantages to your smile. However, not that many adults are happy about wearing metal brackets and wires due to cosmetic and other practical concerns. Well, we’ve got news for you. You can now straighten your teeth invisibly by taking advantage of adult teeth straightening options, specifically created for self-conscious adults.
At Weybridge Orthodontics, we use Invisalign to help you straighten your teeth without compromising on the rest of your appearance and lifestyle. Invisalign in Weybridge offers a safe, effective and invisible alternative to metal braces.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is an innovative approach to teeth straightening. Your Weybridge dentist will provide you with a series of custom-made, transparent, plastic aligners to help move your teeth into their right position over a specific period of time. Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth and unlike metal braces they do not cause any irritation or sensitivity on your gums.
Wearing the aligners for at least two weeks before moving to the next set in the series, will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist has planned for you. Treatment with Invisalign can last anywhere between 12 to 18 months, although each patient case is unique.
Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign advantages are clear, making Invisalign ideal while you go on with your life. Invisalign aligners are also removable. This means that – unlike braces – they can be taken out to eat and drink whatever you want without having to worry about hard, chewy and sticky foods. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. However, you must remember to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day for effective treatment. Invisalign aligners are very comfortable and do not cause any irritation to your mouth the way traditional braces potentially would.
And no matter how old you are and what stage you’re at in life, you will greatly appreciate the minimal interference of Invisalign in your life.

When most people think about braces, images of teenagers with mouths full of metal come to mind. If this picture has put you off having treatment to straighten your teeth in the past, it may be time to revise your opinion. At Weybridge Orthodontics, we have a range of braces that are very discreet, so you can use them as an adult without worrying about whether other people can see them. For our patients in Weybridge, Incognito braces have proved very popular. The brackets, archwires and bonding trays are fitted behind the teeth so they really are invisible.
Why have straighter teeth?
Teeth that are out of place look unsightly and can knock your confidence if you are unhappy with how you look when you smile. Many people with wonky teeth feel self-conscious about their appearance and find it makes interacting with others difficult. If your teeth are very misaligned, they can create problems with eating and speaking. In severe cases this can lead to head or neck pain as the jaws cannot function well and the muscles become strained. Straighter teeth are also much easier to clean as they do not leave gaps where plaque can accumulate. This keeps your teeth strong, your breath fresh and your gums healthy. Choosing Incognito in Weybridge is an investment in a beautiful smile and your long-term wellbeing.
What are the advantages of Incognito?
The most obvious benefit of these braces is that the appliance is hidden so you could talk to someone wearing using Incognito in Weybridge and never suspect that they were having corrective treatment. This also means that there is no risk of damage to the enamel on the front of the teeth. The braces are not removeable so are very effective as they apply gentle pressure all of the time to realign your teeth. Traditional braces can rub the delicate tissue on the inside of your lips and cheeks but people using Incognito in Weybridge find that it is a very comfortable system.
It sounds too good to be true but you really can have straight teeth without the visual impact of braces with Incognito. Weybridge Orthodontics look forward to talking to you about how we can help.
Do you wish you had straighter teeth? You may be worrying about your how you look or experiencing pain or difficulties with eating or speaking. If this sounds like you, then Weybridge Orthodontics can help. Orthodontics focuses on how the teeth, jaws and face develop. Treatment is best carried out during childhood when there is a mixture of baby and adult teeth. Every year over 200,000 children and teenagers in England and Wales have orthodontic treatment and make a long-term investment in their health and wellbeing. However, if you an adult who has missed out on corrective procedures as a child, you can still have work done now.
What are the benefits?
Straighter teeth look better which enhances your self-esteem and improves your confidence. They are also healthier. Teeth which are properly aligned are easier to clean as there are fewer gaps in which plaque can accumulate. Correctly positioned teeth are also more stable as they are properly supported and less likely to move around in the mouth, get damaged or become loose. For our patients in Weybridge, orthodontics has also helped with discomfort due to poorly positioned teeth as well as issues around using the mouth normally. You may associate orthodontics with metal braces but there are now a variety of different techniques available to suit your needs.
Options to suit everyone
We offer orthodontics in Weybridge for a range of issues, from resolving crowded or poorly spaced teeth to aligning upper or lower dental arches and correcting the bite of the teeth. A good bite allows the upper and lower sets to meet and work together properly during eating. While we offer metal braces, advances in dental technology have allowed us to also provide faster, more comfortable treatment that is much less obtrusive. Modern braces make use of materials such as tooth-coloured wires and brackets or clear plastic in the form of aligners. You can have the smile you want without the inconvenience, discomfort and unsightliness of traditional methods. With many braces, the treatment time is shorter than before, so it can often save you money too.
Our experienced team looks forward to discussing how orthodontics in Weybridge can help you.
In April four of Weybridge Orthodontics team members set off for Wales to visit Snowdonia. The trip was inspired by Fiona and love of mountains.
Julie, Anielle, Simone and Fiona had a few reasons for their visit to Snowdonia, firstly was to discover and tackle a climb on Snowdon which is the is the highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level, it is the highest point in the British Isles south of the Scottish Highlands.
The Weybridge team also wanted to improve their own fitness levels and spend some time bonding as a team. What a better way to do this that be out in the fresh air and to face challenges along the way.
Encouraging each other is a fantastic way to develop skills as a team, and helps team connect and bond in a different environment to the orthodontic practice setting.
At Weybridge Orthodontics, we aspire to have fantastic communication skills within our team and most importantly with our patients. Team building exercises develop these skills and motivates our team to ensure we maintain our happy, encouraging and healthy environment at Weybridge Orthodontics.
The team were thrilled to reach to top and achieve their goal, with support, hard work and encouragement from one another. The climb was followed by a hearty meal, an overnight stay and a very good night’s sleep.
Well done Team Weybridge, we are all proud of you!
