Invisalign: a subtle way to straighten your teeth

Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most popular teeth-straightening options at Surrey Braces in Weybridge. They are a modern and effective way by which a dentist or orthodontist can straighten your teeth, invisible to the untrained eye and removable for short periods so you can eat what you like and can easily maintain good dental hygiene.

invisalign-teethWhat is Invisalign for?

Unlike some cosmetic brace systems, Invisalign can be used to correct a wide range of orthodontic issues. When you come into our Weybridgedental centre for a consultation, your orthodontist will conduct a thorough clinical examination, and will assess whether this is the best treatment option for your needs.

Treatment with Invisalign involves the use of a custom-made series of clear aligners that are made to fit comfortably over your teeth, gently guiding them into a new position. Your treatment progresses in two-week increments, which means that you will need to change your aligner every fortnight as your teeth begin to move into their new position.

At the end of treatment you will need to wear a retainer to make sure your teeth don’t try to shift back to their original position. We offer a number of discreet retainer options at our Weybridgedental clinic.

Your Invisalign consultation

Your orthodontist will first assess your suitability for Invisalign treatment, and will then take impressions of your teeth. Using the latest computer software, they will be able to show you the results you can expect at the end of treatment.

Your aligners will be custom-made at the Invisalign laboratory in the USA and you will be called back to our Weybridgedental centre when they are ready. Whilst the aligners are easily removable, you should wear them for approximately 22 hours a day. You will require periodic check-ups at our Weybridge clinic during treatment.

Orthodontics in later life: why you’re never too old for treatment

Orthodontics might be traditionally associated with children and teenagers, but at Surrey Braces in Weybridge we believe you are never too old to enjoy the benefits of teeth straightening treatment. Whether you require quick cosmetic correction or have more extensive alignment issues, we are convinced that we can help you – in a more discreet way than you might think.

Another common mistake that people make is to think that orthodontics has to mean obvious metal braces. At our Weybridgedental centre we offer a number of more discreet alternatives – orthodontic treatment designed for the modern age, designed to adjust the position of your teeth without everybody knowing that you are having treatment.

If you are interested in discreet orthodontics, call into our Weybridgedental clinic for a consultation. Your orthodontist will perform an in-depth clinical examination in order to diagnose your condition, then will talk you through the pros and cons of all relevant treatments.

At Surrey Braces we believe your dental treatment should fit around your lifestyle as much as possible. We offer treatment with both fixed appliances – braces – and removable ones – aligners – and whilst the primary concern will be to find the best option to suit your clinical needs, lifestyle factors will also be taken into consideration.

Among the options for patients interested in orthodontics at our Weybridgedental centre are:

Tooth-coloured braces

Tooth-coloured braces may be primarily cosmetic, or may be used for more extensive correction. They comprise tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets.

Clear aligners

Aligners such as Invisalign aren’t just next-to invisible, they are also removable, which means you can take them out to eat, drink, and clean – making maintaining dental hygiene during treatment easy, with no special cleaning techniques required.

Lingual braces

Fitted to the rear surfaces of your teeth, nobody will notice these braces in daily life.

Incognito: the braces nobody knows you are wearing

Incognito lingual braces are an excellent treatment option for patients who want to straighten their teeth without anybody knowing they are having treatment. At Weybridgedental practice Surrey Braces we find these braces are an excellent option for those people who require more extensive correction than many cosmetic orthodontic devices provide.

incognitoOne of the huge benefits of Incognito is that they can correct anything from mild to extensive orthodontic issues. They are metal braces, but unlike the train-track devices that are popular with teenagers but not so much with adults, they are fitted to the rear or lingual surfaces of your teeth. That means that they are invisible in everyday life, so nobody will know you are having treatment unless you decide to tell them.

WeybridgeIncognito appointments

If you are interested in treatment with Incognito lingual braces, we invite you to join us at our Weybridgedental practice for a consultation with an orthodontist. They will perform a thorough clinical examination to assess if this is the best type of treatment to suit your needs.

We always stress that dental treatment should fit around your lifestyle, whilst also producing predictable and beautiful results. In many cases, Incognito is the best way to achieve this.

The braces are custom-made to fit your teeth exactly, for maximum comfort. The brackets are designed for maximum comfort during treatment, and whilst it may take a little longer to get used to an appliance on the back of your teeth, you very soon won’t be bothered by them.

Musicians who play woodwind or brass instruments may have to alter their playing technique, and some people find their speech slightly affected for a few days, but again you will quickly adapt and get used to your braces. Treatment times will vary depending on your needs, and you will be advised of yours at your initial consultation.

Invisalign: a subtler route to straighter teeth

Invisalign affords your dentist or orthodontist a subtler way to straighten your teeth. At Weybridgedental practice Surrey Braces, we have helped many patients to improve the alignment of their smile, and with it boost their self-esteem, with the help of this system of custom-made clear aligners.

Invisalign in Weybridge

invisalignIf you are interested in teeth-straightening treatment, perhaps having missed out on orthodontics as a youngster or having had treatment only to suffer adult relapse, we invite you to join us at our Weybridgedental practice for an Invisalign consultation.

We believe that dental treatment should work with your lifestyle, whilst also achieving excellent results. For adult patients interested in teeth straightening, we often find that Invisalign provides the perfect solution. Unlike some other cosmetic orthodontic systems, which focus only on the front teeth, these aligners can correct a wider range of orthodontic concerns.

When you come into our clinic you will be seen by an experienced orthodontist, who will perform a detailed clinical examination to assess your suitability for this treatment. Thanks to the advanced computer software that backs up Invisalign, they will be able to show you exactly what results you can expect right from the outset.

How treatment works

Treatment with Invisalign involves using a series of clear aligners that are made to fit comfortably over your teeth, gently guiding them into a new position. The exact number of aligners required varies on a case-to-case basis and will be discussed by your orthodontist at your initial consultation.

You need to change your aligner every two weeks as your teeth start to move, and you will need to come for periodic check-ups at our Weybridgedental practice to ensure that your treatment is progressing as predicted.

The aligners are clear and removable, meaning that you can take them out for short periods to eat, clean, and brush your teeth. You should wear them for approximately 22 hours a day.

Incognito: the braces that no-one need know about

Incognito lingual braces can correct anything from mild to severe orthodontic problems, without anyone knowing you are having treatment. They are one of the most popular options at our Weybridgedental practice, and the unique design of their brackets means they are much more comfortable than traditional orthodontic appliances.

incognito-lingual-bracesAn increasing number of adults are contacting our Weybridgedental clinic wanting to straighten their teeth, but not wanting the whole world to know about it. It’s not difficult to see why the thought of traditional braces can be off-putting to adults, because they are not particularly compatible with a busy adult lifestyle. That’s where Incognito lingual braces come in.

There are a number of discreet orthodontic appliances on the market, but many of them focus primarily on the cosmetic aspect of your smile. They are designed to work on the front teeth – those on display when you smile – and are an excellent treatment option for minor correction. However, if you need to make more significant adjustments to the positioning of your teeth, or of your bite – how your jaws meet together – Incognito braces could be the perfect solution.

When you come for an Incognito consultation at our Weybridgedental clinic, your orthodontist will be able to provide a realistic 3D image of what results you can expect from treatment thanks to the advanced computer software we use.

Incognito lingual braces are custom-designed to fit your teeth perfectly, so a thorough clinical examination will be required at the start of treatment.

Your exact treatment time will depend on the amount and type of correction required, and your orthodontist will advise you of this when you come to our Weybridge clinic for an Incognito consultation.

Woodwind and brass instrument players may find that they need to adjust their playing style when wearing these braces, but they cause no significant problems with speech or comfort.

Orthodontics: not just for teenagers

Orthodontics isn’t just for teenagers. At Surrey Braces dental practice, Weybridge, our skilled orthodontic team offer a number of treatments designed to help adult patients straighten their smile – and the good news is, many of these treatments are practically invisible. That means you can get the straighter teeth you’ve always dreamt of, without the mouth full of metal you’ve always feared.

orthodonticsWhat is discreet orthodontics?

Discreet orthodontics uses either clear or tooth-coloured appliance to guide your teeth into a new position. These may be fixed appliances – braces – or removable ones – aligners. When you come to our Weybridgedental practice for a consultation your orthodontist will discuss the pros and cons of all relevant treatments with you, so that you can make an educated choice about your treatment.

We also offer treatment with Incognito lingual braces at our Weybridgedental clinic. These are traditional metal braces with one big difference – they are attached to the rear or lingual surfaces of the teeth, making them unnoticeable in daily life. Lingual braces can correct a huge number of orthodontic problems.

Clear aligners

One of the most popular discreet orthodontics treatments at our Weybridge clinic is the Invisalign system of clear aligners. These clear plastic appliances are practically invisible, and most people won’t even know that you are having treatment.

You will be provided with a series of aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth. They guide them into a new position, and you change your aligner fortnightly as your teeth move.

Tooth-coloured braces

We offer a number of tooth-coloured braces at our Weybridgedental practice, including Damon and Clarity. These braces have been designed to blend in well with the natural colour of your teeth, using clear and tooth-coloured components for a high degree of discretion.

Many of these braces also have considerably shortened treatment times when compared with traditional orthodontics.

Incognito: the subtler way to straighter teeth

Incognito lingual braces are one of the subtlest teeth-straightening treatments around. At Weybridgedental practice Surrey Braces we have helped many people enjoy the benefits of straighter teeth thanks to these revolutionary braces.

straighter-teethA common conundrum faced by adult patients contacting our Weybridgedental practice is that they wish they had straighter teeth, whilst having no desire to wear obvious metal braces. Our team understands and empathises with these concerns, which is why we offer discreet orthodontic solutions.

Unlike some of the other discreet orthodontics products available, Incognito lingual braces can treat anything from mild to severe orthodontic problems. As well as straightening your teeth, they can correct problems with the bite – the way that your jaws come together – which can help to avoid teeth getting worn because of unevenly distributed biting and chewing forces.

How do I get Incognito braces?

Your first step on your journey to straighter teeth begins with a consultation here at our Weybridgedental practice. We will carefully examine your teeth, jaws, and bite, and will assess if Incognito is the most appropriate treatment option.

Incognito lingual braces have been specially designed with patient comfort in mind, with low-lying lingual brackets that are custom-made to fit your teeth. Thanks to the advanced 3D imaging software behind this treatment, your Weybridge orthodontist will be able to create a realistic image of the finished product, and predict your results and treatment time with a high degree of accuracy.

Are there any down sides to lingual braces?

As with all orthodontic treatments, it may take a few days to fully adjust to your Incognito braces. You will need to visit the hygienist regularly for advice on how to clean around your braces effectively, and if you play a brass or wind instrument may need to adapt your playing technique. However, all these issues are swiftly overcome in most cases.

Orthodontics: Not just for kids

A lot of people mistakenly believe orthodontics is just for children and teenagers. At our Weybridgedental practice, we are keen to stress the benefits of orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages – as well as to point out that orthodontics no longer has to equal obvious metal braces.

orthodonticsIncreasing numbers of adults are turning to discreet orthodontics to straighten their teeth. Straightening your teeth has numerous health benefits, not least the boost improving your smile can have on your self-esteem and your interactions with others.

Straighter teeth are healthier teeth, because they are easier to keep clean. There is less chance of food particles getting trapped in gaps between the teeth, reducing the chances of plaque build-up, gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. You will still need to brush and floss regularly and effectively, of course, and visit your dentist and hygienist every six months, but straightening your teeth can have a hugely positive impact on your dental health.

Ensuring that your bite is properly aligned also reduces strain on your teeth by ensuring the forces generated when you bite and chew your food are more evenly distributed.

At our Weybridgedental practice we understand that most adults will not want to wear obvious metal braces for long periods of time. These remain effective, and popular with teenagers who enjoy the ability to customise their braces, for example with the colours of their favourite football team, but they can be incompatible with a busy adult lifestyle.

Discreet orthodontics involves the use of tooth-coloured and clear devices to straighten your teeth in a subtler way. These may be fixed appliances (braces) or removable appliances (aligners). Each have their benefits, and the most suitable option will be discussed during your initial consultation at our Weybridge clinic. We also offer treatment with lingual braces, which are fitted to the back sides of the teeth.

Invisalign: orthodontic treatment that fits around your lifestyle

Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most popular alternatives to braces at Weybridge dental practice Surrey Braces. They can be used to correct a number of orthodontic conditions, whilst having minimal impact on your lifestyle.

invisalignThe growing demand for straighter teeth

More and more adults in the UK are seeking orthodontic treatment. Whether you missed out on treatment as a teenager, or you had treatment only to discover that your teeth have moved back to their original position, if the alignment of your teeth is making you unhappy we invite you to join us at our Weybridge dental practice for a consultation.

Straightening your teeth with products such as Invisalign has more than just cosmetic benefits. It is easier to keep your teeth clean if they are properly aligned, because there are fewer gaps in which food particles can get trapped and dental plaque can build up. Therefore, with regular visits to your dentist and a good oral care routine at home, straightening your teeth can reduce your chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign comprises a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, guiding them gently into an improved position.

Because they are clear, Invisalign treatment is invisible to the untrained eye in daily life, and because they are removable they have minimal impact on your lifestyle. You can remove them for short periods to clean and to brush/floss your teeth, as well as to eat and drink.

Invisalign consultations in Weybridge

When you come to our Weybridge practice for a consultation, we will assess if Invisalign is the best treatment for you. Impressions will be taken of your teeth, and we will use 3D imaging technology to show you what results to expect before starting treatment.

The number of aligners required will depend upon the amount and type of correction needed.

Incognito: the braces that are invisible in everyday life

Incognito braces are one of the most popular treatment options at Weybridge dental practice Surrey Braces. These metal appliances can be used to correct a wide number of orthodontic issues with one key difference to standard braces: because they are placed on the rear, or lingual, surfaces of the teeth, they will not be noticed in everyday life.

invisible-bracesOrthodontics for adults

It is now considered standard for children and teenagers in the UK to have orthodontic treatment as required. However, there is also an increase in demand among adult patients who want to straighten their teeth.

At our Weybridge dental practice we understand that many adults will balk at the thought of wearing standard metal braces, with treatment times of two years or more. However, we are also keen to stress that there are more than just aesthetic benefits to be gained from straightening your teeth.

With regular visits to your dentist and hygienist, straighter teeth are healthier teeth, because they are easier to keep clean, with fewer gaps in which particles of food can get trapped.

Incognito: a more discreet solution

Incognito lingual braces are just one of the products at our Weybridge dental practice that fall under the category of discreet orthodontics. This is one of the fastest-growing areas of modern dentistry as more and more adults are demanding treatments that combine maximum discretion with excellent results.

Designed with your comfort in mind

Incognito braces are designed to be more comfortable than traditional braces, too. They are customised to fit your teeth and your orthodontist at our Weybridge clinic will pay close attention to every detail to ensure your braces fit your teeth perfectly.

Because they can be used to correct all manner of orthodontic problems large and small, Incognito lingual braces afford more flexibility than some other, more cosmetically-focussed discreet orthodontic products.
