Do you feel unhappy about the appearance of your teeth but fearful at the prospect of wearing visible metal braces? Rest assured, Claradent have the perfect solution. With Invisalign, our team can help you show off your smile without showing off your braces!

The importance of a straight smile

Whether you’re socializing with friends or attending an important meeting at work, the appearance of your smile is important. A beautiful set of straight teeth helps you relax and feel confident, but if you don’t like your smile then you’re more likely to feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. Many people believe that braces will only cause further insecurity, but Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so you’ll be straightening your smile in secret!

What does Invisalign do?

At Claradent we use Invisalign to treat a variety of orthodontic problems, including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps in the smile
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbites
  • Crossbites

Traditionally, these problems could only be treated with highly visible, fixed braces. Understandably, this might raise objections about having treatment, but this convenient system is removable, clear and comfortable, so your lifestyle doesn’t need to change at all.

Invisalign The treatment process at Claradent

Invisalign treatment at Claradent begins with a consultation. At this point, we will carry out a full examination, talk to you about your desired outcome and work up a digital model of your treatment. From this, you’ll be able to map out your orthodontic journey and see the end result before your aligners are even prepared! Once you’re happy with the plan, we’ll get to work creating your custom-made aligners.

Your aligners must be worn in a specific order and you’ll need to move on to the next one in the set every two weeks. Each one will be slightly different to the last as they gradually guide your teeth into the desired position. We’ll invite you back to the practice every couple of months so we can keep an eye on your progress.
