More and more of our patients experiencing bite and alignment issues are opting for Invisalign treatment. The invisible, transparent aligners allow our patients to straighten their smiles without the stigma of a metal mouth.

Invisalign also offers patients the choice to eat what they like, as the aligners are removable and can be removed to eat, drink, and even attend big social events.

Your guide to Invisalign

We are Platinum Providers of Invisalign – we are recognised as one of the best, which means you can trust us to carry out your treatment effectively! Essentially, as Platinum Providers, we have worked with Invisalign for a long time and treated more than 300 hundred patients.

What is Invisalign?

➡ Invisalign for adults

➡ Invisalign for teens

➡ Invisalign for children

The process of Invisalign is a simple one, which uses a series of clear aligners that gradually shift your teeth into a straighter position.

The high-grade, transparent aligners have the power to close gaps present between teeth and can correct misaligned teeth to produce a better-improved bite.

The Gentle Dental has seen many patients leave our clinic feeling happy and confident after receiving their treatment. This is because Invisalign is widely known to help improve a patient’s self-confidence because of the fast, discreet journey to the perfect smile.

Also widely accredited for the advantages it can also have on your oral health, Invisalign can improve bites, helping patients to chew and eat better with no restrictions placed on diet.

How does Invisalign work?

Compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign straightens your teeth more quickly and discreetly. Every two weeks, your custom-made, almost invisible aligners will change to adjust your teeth little by little each week.

Invisalign braces are made from a very thin, clear medical plastic that allows the patient to complete their tooth straightening treatment without feeling self-conscious.

Invisalign benefits

We surveyed 100 of our Invisalign patients to highlight, other than the results, the main advantages they experienced during treatment.

It does not rely on metal wires or brackets.

As revolutionary teeth straightening process, Invisalign is unlike any other method as it uses a series of see-through medical-grade plastic aligners that are custom-designed to fit your mouth.

The aligners are practically invisible.

This reason is why Invisalign is an increasingly popular treatment method. Almost invisible to the eye, Invisalign offers the wearer the chance not to feel self-conscious whilst undergoing the treatment.

They’re removable

The fact that Invisalign aligners are removable means they can be removed for brushing and eating. This promotes a better standard of oral health and means that orthodontic patients do not need further work to prevent decay or tartar buildup.

The aligners are also permitted to be taken out for important occasions like big meetings and weddings. Invisalign has been specifically designed to suit the wearer’s lifestyle to make the process simple and easy. That’s why it’s an increasingly popular treatment for adults, who can avoid the stigma of a metal mouth.

Types of Invisalign

The Gentle offers many types of Invisalign, including Invisalign Lite (often used in teen and minor correction cases – treatment completed in 6 months) and Invisalign Express.

We also offer a wide choice of tooth straightening treatments that suit adults, children and teens, including InvisalignInman AlignersLingual BracesSix Month Braces and Ceramic Braces.

Dental Impant Surgery:I had my dental implants fitted recently and I am extremely happy with the outcome. Ali and the team have done an amazing job since I lost my 2 front teeth over 6 years ago. I had to wait for the surgery for a long time due to my age and the issues surrounding having implants at a young age.I finally had the surgery 12 weeks ago and had my two new crowns fitted last week. They look absolutely amazing and the whole procedure was way less painful than I ever thought it would be.I would highly recommend getting your implants done at the Gentle Dental Practice, you won't regret it!A massive thank you to everyone at the practice!

Fantastic work on my teeth and I would highly recommend! My teeth turned out better than I had even hoped for. If you are in need of any dental work, you would be doing a great disservice if you didn't speak to this practice first. The staff were extremely friendly, there were text updates and all in all an excellent service from start to finish. If you haven't guessed already, I am thoroughly pleased with The Gentle Dentle. Thank you!

Like many people, I have an immense fear of dentistry, and dentists, due to previous experiences.I had two broken teeth and one that had been treated incorrectly by an NHS dentist. I had been in daily pain for about 18 months, and had been put on a 6 month waiting list by my NHS dentist.I called gentle dental to explain my problem and they offered me a same day appointment. They were kind, compassionate, understanding, patient and validating. I’m not sure anybody ever feels completely comfortable in the chair, but It’s the closest I’ve ever come!The work needed was carried out, all of the staff were kind and welcoming, and it showed me that the dentist doesn’t have to be a dreaded place!Thank you so, so much gentle dental! I will definitely be returning.

Dental Implants - 3 New Teeth - June 2022I had the most professional and pain free experience when getting my new tooth implants at Gentle Dental. Honestly I put it off for some many years because I just didn't want to go through the pain. But my experience was totally the opposite. Ali and the wonderful girls were there every step of the way. All my questions got answered and I was reassured everything would work out well. And it did. I was worried for no reason.I did think about going abroad to have it done but when you consider the risk factor, time and professional standards - it made no sense to me. I have known Ali for a long time and knew I would be in the best hands and if there were any issues these would could be resolved easily.If you are thinking of having dental implants at Gentle - don't waste any more time. Just book and get it done.Was it painful ? No, uncomfortable for a few days, yes for sure.I just wish I had it done sooner. Thanks guys, love my new teeth 🙂

Can't thank this practice enough for all their help. I don't post reviews very often, so when I do, it's because an impression has been left! Dr Ali saw me at short notice to help fix a broken tooth. The nurse (I think her name was Danni) was so helpful and kind, as were the rest of the team. Thank you for being there for me in my hour of need (the same day i asked for an appointment!)

I’m so happy to find this practice. I suffer from anxiety and high sensitivity to pain. It was very stressful for me going to dentist after years of fear. The team not only make me calm and welcome but I FELL ASLEEP during treatment with Dr Marshall ! So understanding and caring. Thank you!

I have been using this dentist for well over a decade and can honestly say my teeth would be in a far worse situation if wasn’t for the Gentle Dental practice.My most recent visit was for a filling .. barely felt the injection!I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone, but especially if you’re teeth require a high level of care like mine.

This place was recommended to me by family and for a nervous patient the best experience. The reception welcome is cheerful and friendly, beautifully modern area with hot drinks and water on offer.I needed implants, crowns and bridges followed by whitening, so lots of appointments. My dentist Mr Ali Rafai was superb from start to finish, so professional and personable. Throughout the whole process I was cared for wonderfully plus lots of laughs along the way. The constant care during appointments was very comforting, no rushing, and I knew I my needs were Mr Rafai's priority. Plus check up call the next day without fail to make sure everything was going well.Absolutely deserves five stars!

Fantastic experience with Ali. It took 18 months including bone grafting, removing and replacing failed dental implants, invisaline for my bottom teeth which were all over the place and some veneers but now I'm delighted with the outcome.Ali was always very clear about how this wasn't an overnight solution in an honest and forthright manner which gave me confidence that he would deliver results.I was offered several overnight solutions from other dentists locally at a fraction of the cost but when I see how much effort and detail that went into my plan, I know i made the right choice.
