No, orthodontics for adults is becoming more and more common. We can talk through your Invisalign® options with you.
Whitening can be an important part of a smile makeover and a boost to your confidence. We always check the suitability of your teeth, as it may not be recommended if you suffer from high sensitivity. It’s important to know that we may not be able to treat all of your teeth, for example whitening can’t alter the colour of fillings, crowns, veneers etc. Your dentist can explain and suggest any options open to you.
Yes, our Dentist is trained to provide Invisalign® and has treated many patients with excellent results.
We would like to invite you for an initial consultation to find out more about improving your smile.
Invisalign® Is the most popular and world leading system in clear, removable braces.
Invisalign® is the clinically effective, nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth without metal braces.
You wear a series of clear, removable aligners which gradually move your teeth into the desired position.
Our aligners can be removed for eating, flossing and brushing your teeth.
We offer Invisalign® treatments from as little as £2900 which includes:
- An initial consultation
- All photographs, impressions and records
- Aligners for entire treatment
- Any refinements that may be needed
- Check-ups every 1 – 2 weeks
- Custom made retainers
- Teeth whitening
We also offer 0% finance through Tabeo over 3, 6 or 10 months.
Once approved by your Dentist, a series of aligners are custom made in Align Technology’s laboratories using advanced 3D computer imaging technology.
You wear each aligner for two weeks before replacing it with the next aligner in the series until your teeth have been moved to the position prescribed by your Dentist.
Aligners are nearly invisible – they straighten your teeth without hardly anyone noticing.
Aligners are comfortable – there are no visible wires or metal to cause irritation to your mouth or gums.
Aligners are removable – for eating, drinking, dental care or other activities.
Better oral hygiene during treatment – brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth.
Adults with fully erupted dentition or teenagers with partially/fully erupted permanent dentition can be treated with Invisalign®, even if you have crowns or bridges.
Many common issues, of varying complexity, can be successfully resolved with Invisalign®.
After your initial consultation with your Dentist you will discuss your goals for a new smile.
This information will then be used to plan your treatment, take impressions and photographs of your teeth and smile.
With advanced computer technology the Dentist can then show you a 3D simulation of how your final smile could look, before you even start you treatment.
It depends on the condition of your teeth and the severity of your treatment.
Most treatments can take between 6 – 18 months to complete.
The aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day for the best result.
Every two weeks you change to a new aligner and we recommend a check-up with every new aligner.
The aligners are made from clear plastic, so they are nearly invisible.
Even when very close, most people will not notice you are straightening your teeth – unless you tell them!
No. The aligners are removable so you can still enjoy your favourite food and drinks.
Be committed to wearing your aligners at all times except for eating, drinking, cleaning and flossing.
The smooth aligners are not harmful to the inside of your mouth, however it is normal to feel some pressure during the first few days after you change to a new aligner.
This is a good sign as it means the aligners are moving your teeth.
Aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people, and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two.
Align Technology Inc, the company that manufactures Invisalign®, was founded in 1997.
Since then over 9 million patients have been or are in treatment with Invisalign®.

Our wide Range of services
A very friendly, welcoming and professional practice, very impressed with Ravi and all of his staff.
Best dentist I have ever been to. Cannot recommend this practice, or Aarti enough. She's an absolute pleasure and fantastic at keeping me calm and letting me know what's going on. I've never trusted or felt so at ease at a dentist before and that was having two root canals done!
Since having a 'break' from the dentist I returned to the practice due to a broken tooth. I have always been a nervous patient, but Aarti was very calm and reassuring and has provided great treatment. The procedures have been pain-free and I couldn't even feel the injection on my last visit! All the staff are very friendly and welcoming and I would highly recommend!
Excellent dental practice. They are friendly, professional and do great dental work. I can't recommend them enough.
They made me feel so welcome and calm. Couldn't give any more thanks for the help. I'm free from pain and ready for my next appointment. Amazing staff.
