Invisalign: the benefits of aligner treatment

Invisalign clear aligners are just one of the teeth-straightening treatment options available at our Weybridge orthodontic clinic. They offer a number of benefits in addition to straighter teeth, including making dental hygiene a breeze during treatment and having minimal impact on your lifestyle.

invisalign-weybridgeWhy you should consider orthodontic treatment

As well as causing embarrassment when smiling – which can have a negative impact on your self-esteem, personal and business relationships – crooked and misaligned teeth are also more difficult to clean, as food particles can get trapped in gaps, leading to a build-up of dental plaque, which increases your chances of developing gum disease or tooth decay. By using aligners such as Invisalign, or tooth-coloured braces, to straighten your teeth, you can help to improve your dental health.

Why choose Invisalign?

When you come to our Weybridge practice for a consultation with an orthodontist, they will undertake a careful examination of your teeth and gums to assess the type and amount of correction you require.

Invisalign can be used to correct a range of mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Treatment involves using a series of clear aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth to gently guide them into an improved position. The exact number of aligners required, and the length of your treatment, varies from case to case, and will be discussed by your orthodontist at the outset of treatment.

Because they are removable, Invisalign aligners have minimal impact on your lifestyle. Of course, you should still wear them most of the time to ensure swift and effective treatment, but you can take them out for short periods – helping to avoid the dental hygiene difficulties sometimes associated with braces.

Invisalign is just one of the discreet orthodontic options available at our Weybridge clinic, so even if they are not the best option in your case, we will find an appropriate subtle method of teeth straightening.

Orthodontics for adults: your options

Orthodontics is now seen as standard for children and teenagers, but many adults would also like to have straighter teeth. At Surrey Braces in Weybridge, we understand the desire for teeth straightening sometimes conflicts with no desire to wear obvious metal braces. That’s why we are pleased to offer a number of subtler ways to improve the alignment of your teeth.

orthodonticsWhether you missed out on treatment as a child, or have experience of orthodontics only to find your teeth have moved back to their original position, the skilled team at our Weybridge dental clinic can help.

Discreet orthodontics uses either braces or clear aligners to gently move your teeth into a better position. The best option for your treatment will depend on the amount and type of correction that is required, as well as on your lifestyle and personal preferences. This will all be discussed at your initial consultation, so you can make an educated choice about treatment.

You may be referred to our Weybridge orthodontics clinic by your dentist, or may refer yourself. However you come to us, your first step will be to have a detailed consultation with an orthodontist, who will carefully examine your teeth, gums, and surrounding structures before talking you through all appropriate treatment options.

What’s on offer?

Treatment options at our Weybridge clinic include:

Tooth-coloured braces

These braces comprise clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires for a high degree of discretion. Depending on your needs, you may be prescribed cosmetic braces that focus on your front teeth, or standard braces that work on all your teeth.

Clear aligners

Clear aligners fit over your teeth and have the added benefit of being removable, which means they help you maintain good dental hygiene during treatment.

Lingual braces

Attached to the rear of your teeth, these braces can treat even complex cases.

Incognito: the braces that nobody will see

Incognito are braces that are different. They are lingual, which means they are attached to the rear surfaces of your teeth, thus they are invisible to the untrained eye in everyday life. These braces are just one of the discreet orthodontic options available from Surrey Braces in Weybridge.

Braces – not just for teenagers

incognitoBraces remain, in many cases, the best way to straighten teeth. They give your orthodontist maximum control over tooth movement, and can be used to correct anything from mild to moderate orthodontic problems.

At Surrey Braces dental practice in Weybridge, we welcome new patients of all ages who are interested in discreet orthodontic treatment. Whether your own dentist has referred you or you have referred yourself, your first step will be a consultation with an orthodontist here in the comfort of our Weybridge clinic.

How Incognito lingual braces work

If your dentist or orthodontist recommends treatment with Incognito braces, you will have a unique prescription created to suit your individual dental situation and to achieve the results that you want.

Incognito lingual braces are the only 100% customised invisible fixed appliance system available on the UK market. The latest technology is used to create braces that are entirely customised to fit the shape of your teeth and your treatment needs.

Your orthodontist will use state-of-the-art 3D imaging technology to create a realistic view of the finished product and to accurately predict what the result will be. Our orthodontic team pay exceptional attention to detail when creating your braces to make sure they fit your teeth perfectly.

We have treated many patients successfully with Incognito braces at our Weybridge practice. They provide the full functionality and predictability of traditional metal brace systems, without anyone knowing that you are having treatment unless you decide to tell them.

After treatment you will need to wear a retainer, and again we have many discreet options available.

Discreet orthodontics: subtle ways to straighten your teeth

Discreet orthodontics involves the use of clear or tooth-coloured appliances to move your teeth into a better position without treatment being immediately obvious. At Surrey Braces in Weybridge our skilled orthodontists offer both fixed and removable discreet appliances designed to move improve the position of your teeth subtly and with minimal impact on your lifestyle.

Who is orthodontics for?

discreet orthodonticsOrthodontics is now seen as standard for children and teenagers, but at our Weybridge dental practice we have seen an increasing number of adult patients who would like to straighten their teeth, without wearing traditional braces.

At Surrey Braces in Weybridge, we believe that orthodontic treatment is for anyone who wants it. Whether you are referred to us by your dentist or come to us on your own volition, if you would like to straighten your teeth or improve your bite (the way that your jaws meet together) we invite you to join us for a consultation.

What happens at my orthodontics consultation?

Your orthodontist will take a detailed medical and dental history, and will listen to your concerns before undertaking a thorough clinical examination of your teeth, gums, and bite. They will then discuss the pros and cons of all appropriate treatment options, so that you can make an educated choice about the best way forward.

What are my options?

Modern orthodontics means more than just metal braces. Depending on your clinical need and your personal preference, your orthodontist may recommend a fixed appliance (braces) or a removable one (aligners). Both options have many advantages and we are confident that we can find the best treatment for you, no matter what your needs.

Braces

We offer a number of fixed appliances at our Weybridge dental centre. These may be tooth-coloured or lingual – attached to the rear surfaces of your teeth.

Aligners

Clear aligners that fit over your teeth have the additional advantage of being removable, for minimal impact on your lifestyle.

How Invisalign can straighten your teeth without impacting on your lifestyle

Invisalign is one of the most popular alternatives to traditional metal braces for patients who want straighter teeth. At Surrey Braces, Weybridge, it is just one of the many discreet orthodontics options available.

How Invisalign differs from standard braces

invisalignThe Invisalign system has been designed with both discretion and convenience at its heart. Many patients tell their dentist or orthodontist that they would love to straighten their teeth, but have no desire to wear standard braces because they are very obvious and not always compatible with a professional adult’s lifestyle.

At our Weybridge dental and orthodontic practice we fully empathise with this predicament, while also knowing the benefits orthodontic treatment can have on your self-esteem, dental and general health.

We believe that our patients should have access to the most reliable and effective solutions to their dental health concerns, and have found that Invisalign is an excellent option in many cases.

Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that fit comfortably over the teeth and gradually move them into an improved position. Unlike traditional braces, the aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and drink, to clean, and to brush your teeth. This, combined with their near invisibility, means that they have minimal impact on your lifestyle, as well as making maintaining good dental hygiene during treatment as easy as brushing your teeth, with no need for specialist techniques to clean around your braces.

How treatment works

We welcome patients from Weybridge and beyond for Invisalign treatment. If your orthodontist agrees this is the best option for you, they will take impressions of your teeth so that your bespoke set of aligners can be created.

You will be given a series of aligners, which you change every few weeks as your teeth move. The exact number of aligners will be discussed at your initial consultation.

Why Incognito could be your perfect teeth straightening option

At Weybridge’s Surrey Braces, we know that many patients want straighter teeth without obvious braces. Incognito lingual braces are one of our most popular options, and we have helped many patients to straighten their teeth with these discreet orthodontic devices.

What are Incognito braces, and what can they be used for?

incognito bracesIncognito braces are just one of several discreet orthodontic treatment options available from our Weybridge dental practice. These are metal braces with a big difference: they are lingual, which means your orthodontist will attach them to the rear surfaces of your teeth. This means that they are hidden from view in everyday life, whilst also being one of the best discreet orthodontic devices in many cases because they can correct a wide variety of issues.

Lingual braces such as Incognito work just like standard braces, using wires and brackets to guide your teeth into an improved position. Incognito braces’ brackets are custom-designed for your teeth, offering maximum comfort as well as maximum discretion for the duration of your treatment.

The Incognito lingual system used at our Weybridge dental practice was the first fully-customised lingual bracket system created to correct problems with tooth alignment. The brackets, archwires and bonding trays are all custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly, delivering targeted and predictable results – beautifully straight teeth.

If you are interested in treatment with Incognito lingual braces, you should come into our Weybridge dental centre for a consultation with one of our orthodontists. We use the latest 3D imaging technology to create your appliance, meaning that you will know exactly what results you can expect before you start treatment.

After a thorough examination by your orthodontist, they will pay close attention to every detail to ensure that your braces fit your teeth perfectly. For more information about discreet orthodontic treatments, get in touch with our Weybridge dental team today.

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.

Why Incognito braces are an excellent option for adults who want straighter teeth

Many adult patients at our Weybridge dental practice have used Incognito braces to straighten their teeth. Unlike some other discreet brace options, which are mainly targeted at patients who have cosmetic orthodontic concerns, Incognito braces can treat a huge spectrum of orthodontic problems. What’s more, they are one of the most discreet brace solutions available.

Adult orthodontics

bracesLots of adults want straighter teeth, but do not want to wear obvious metal braces for reasons that are, well, obvious. Wearing a highly visible metal appliance for up to 24 months is not particularly compatible with busy professional lifestyles, and can be a barrier to patients seeking treatment.

At Surrey Braces dental practice in Weybridge, we understand and empathise with these concerns. That’s why we offer a wide selection of discreet orthodontic devices, and why we are confident that whatever your issue with the alignment of your teeth, we will find the perfect solution for you.

What makes Incognito so different?

Incognito braces are lingual braces, which means that they are attached to the rear surfaces of the teeth. This means that they are not visible in everyday life, and you can speak and smile with confidence at all times.

Lingual braces such as Incognito can correct a vast array of orthodontic issues large and small. These braces are made using the latest state-of-the-art technology and materials, and every set is custom-made to fit the shape of your teeth and suit your dental situation. The patented bracket design means that these are also some of the most comfortable orthodontic appliances available.

If you are interested in treatment with Incognito lingual braces, you should book a consultation with one of the orthodontic team here at our Weybridge dental practice. You will be carefully examined and assessed to ascertain whether this is the best treatment option for you, before a treatment plan is drawn up.

Orthodontics: so much more than just metal braces

Orthodontics doesn’t just mean metal braces. At Surrey Braces in Weybridge, our highly-qualified team of specialist orthodontists have numerous options for patients who want to straighten their teeth in a more discreet manner, regardless of how much orthodontic correction is required. We welcome patients of all ages and have, to date, treated more than 21,000 happy customers. Read on to discover what we could do for you. . .

Discreet treatment

orthodonticsThese days, orthodontic treatment is considered routine for children and teenagers. However, an increasing number of adult patients are also starting to recognise the benefits orthodontics can have on their smile, as well as on their dental and general health.

There is just one stumbling block for adults seeking orthodontic treatment, and that is that many people still believe orthodontics is synonymous with metal “train-track” style braces. Whilst these remain a popular treatment option for children and teenagers, adults often worry that metal braces will be incompatible with their lifestyle.

At our specialist orthodontic practice in Weybridge, we understand this – which is why we offer a number of more discreet options. Discreet orthodontics may involve the use of braces or aligners, with the best option depending on a number of factors including the amount and type of correction required, your personal preferences and lifestyle.

What are my options?

We offer both direct access treatment and referrals from other dentists at our Weybridge practice. When you come for your initial orthodontics consultation, you will be examined carefully by one of our skilled team members, who will then discuss all relevant treatment options.

These include:

Clear aligners

These removable devices fit over your teeth and help you maintain good dental hygiene because you can take them out to brush your teeth.

Tooth-coloured braces

These blend into your mouth and are almost invisible.

Lingual braces

These are attached to the rear surfaces of your teeth.

Invisalign: straighter teeth without a metallic glint on show

At Surrey Braces in Weybridge, Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most popular methods for patients to straighten their teeth. There is increasing demand for ways to correct tooth alignment problems without the whole world knowing about it. Depending on your individual needs, in many cases Invisalign could be the best option.

What is Invisalign?

weybridgeorthodonticsInvisalign is a system of clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and gently move them into a better position. Each set of aligners is custom-made following a detailed consultation at our Weybridge dental practice, so you can be sure that your aligners will fit your teeth perfectly.

Before starting treatment, your dentist will take a series of impressions and photographs and, with the aid of our state-of-the-art computer software, they will be able to show you what results you can expect.

Every patient’s needs will be slightly different, so the number of aligners you will require, and the length of your treatment, will depend on your individual circumstances. Your dentist or orthodontist will be able to advise you of this at the start of treatment.

As your teeth begin to move, you will need to change your aligner every two weeks or so. You will also need to come in for a check-up every few weeks at our Weybridge clinic so that we can check your treatment is progressing as planned. At the end of treatment, you will need to wear a retainer.

What are the advantages of treatment with Invisalign?

The most obvious advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners are clear, meaning that nobody will notice them in everyday life and no-one need know you are having treatment unless you choose to tell them.

Another big advantage is that the aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and drink, to clean, and to brush your teeth.
