Invisible solutions to crooked teeth

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?

Incognito in WeybridgeTeeth 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.

Orthodontics in Weybridge

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.

Orthodontics in WeybridgeWhat 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.

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.

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.

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.
