Invisible Braces St Albans

Invisalign

This is the popular U.S. brace system. Using 3-d computer aided technology we digitally create a mock-up of your teeth and align them to prescription. Once you and your dentist are happy with the final result we have a set of clear aligners manufactured. You wear the aligner for 2 weeks at a time returning to ensure the teeth are moving as planned. After all the aligners are used the teeth should reach their desired position and then retainers are placed to hold the teeth in these positions long term.

To improve efficiency we sometimes add white filling material to the front of the teeth to help the trays engage with the tooth and move it in the desired direction.

To create space if needed we can either remove teeth, or ‘strip’ tiny amounts of enamel between a number of teeth to create space for the teeth to move. This is usually done progressively during the treatment to ensure we stay as minimal as possible.

Clear Aligners

Our dentists provide clear removable aligners, such as Invisalign.

Invisalign works by creating a digital copy of your teeth and virtually straightening them. These movements are transferred to clear plastic trays which slowly move your teeth over the next weeks and months.

Each tray is used for 2 weeks and worn all day and night, except when eating and brushing your teeth. Average users wear each aligner approximately 18-20 hours a day.

The length of treatment with Invisalign is determined by the complexity of each case and can range from 2-3 months to 18 months.

The cost also varies with complexity – our prices can be found in Our Fees.

Our dentists have a vast amount of experience in using these appliances and have been doing so for the past 5 years since they launched.

Alignment Bleaching & Bonding

This is new cosmetic dental term in minimally invasive dentistry. It avoids the need for dental veneers and cutting healthy teeth to stumps for the desire of straight, even, white teeth. We now use your natural teeth to realise the maximum potential they hold in creating your perfect smile.

0% Interest payment plans are available for all these treatments.
