Where to find us
Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, also known as Surrey Braces, our team of highly professional, qualified practitioners have a combined 100 years of first-hand dental experience and expertise. Our team has helped bring smiles to the faces of over 21,000 happy Surrey residents, and we are showing no signs of slowing down. By getting to know our patients on a personal level, rather than simply opting for the ‘one size fits all’ approach to orthodontics, which is all too common, we’ve found that a more formative and mutually advantageous patient/practitioner relationship can flourish. Our in-house team are on hand to provide patients with a range of different treatments, including the installation of discrete orthodontics, such as Invisalign in Weybridge.
This retainer system is one which has revolutionised the world of conventional orthodontics. Historically, those seeking dental realignment, were often faced with the decision to sacrifice their outward appearance for around twelve months for the sake of a straighter smile, by wearing large, visible, traditional metal braces. Today however, thanks to the ingenuity of Stanford University graduate, Zia Chishti, this has become a thing of the past. Chishti took the world of orthodontics by storm when he first introduced his new system, which utilises a removable, plastic retainer as an alternative to conventional fused metal brackets. This retainer is constructed from a specialist, patented plastic known as SmartTrack, which is utilised for it’s uniquely durable, yet malleable nature. When worn throughout the course of treatment — which varies from case to case, but typically lasts around twelve months — the patient’s teeth are gradually drawn into their correct specifications, using specifically placed pressure points within the retainer.
Under the surface
One of the major reasons as to why Invisalign in Weybridge has grown vastly in its popularity over recent years, over conventional methods of orthodontics, is its discrete nature. Each retainer is unique and made to fit the patient’s teeth by utilising cutting-edge 3D rendering software, which allows for a perfectly accurate and virtually perfect mould of each patient’s teeth to be created, from which the retainer is made. As the retainer is custom fitted to the specific contours of a patient’s teeth, when worn, it fits so snugly over their teeth that it becomes practically invisible. This may explain why Invisalign in Weybridge is now the number one method of discrete orthodontics for teenagers and young adults, who may be deterred from conventional methods due to the scrutiny they may receive from their peers or colleagues. Another reason for Invisalign’s success within this demographic is that, unlike conventional methods of dental realignment, the retainer is removable. This affords its users to decide a convenient time to carry out treatment, and fit around their schedules — such as when at home or asleep. Our friendly and approachable team of specialists will be on-hand to help our patients through each stage of the process of undertaking Invisalign in Weybridge, and we will always provide patients with the support and guidance they require.
