Why should you choose Invisalign braces over regular traditional wired braces? Invisalign clear braces are removable and widely used to treat a wide number of alignment and bite issues, including crossbites, underbites, crowding etc.
Invisalign also offers our patients discretion, because they are near invisible you can complete your teeth straightening treatment without worrying about your appearance.
Our high standard of quality orthodontic care has earned us a reputation as the go-to dental studio to straighten and correct misaligned, crooked teeth.
Being one of the most recommended dental clinics means that we accept an array of patients from Surbiton (KT1 and KT5 postcodes), Long Ditton and Hook.
The modern, virtually invisible alternative to traditional metal braces uses a set of clear aligners that adjust the position of your teeth comfortably and efficiently.
In comparison, traditional braces can often be uncomfortable and straighten the teeth at a slower pace than Invisalign braces.
Many of our Invisalign patients have claimed that wearing clear braces feels like wearing no braces.
The revolutionary process has allowed our patients to receive their tooth straightening treatment without feeling self-conscious about their smiles.
As Invisalign uses transparent, thin aligners it has offered many adult patients the chance to discreetly carry out their treatment and avoid the stigma attached to metal braces.
Additionally, Invisalign braces are removable and can be taken out to eat and brush teeth – ensuring a strong standard of oral health hygiene and health.
Why Choose us for your Invisalign?
“More than 2.5 million people around the world have had the treatment already.”
One of our most experienced dentists, Dr Michael Marshall has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry and is accredited in the use of Invisalign and aesthetic dentistry.
An accomplished doctor, he has received a certificate recognising his work in Cosmetic and Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry from Advanced Dental Seminars.
If you’re considering braces to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is fast becoming the recommended popular treatment for its discreet properties. It is because of this reason, that we are seeing many adults undergo the treatment.
Aligners are widely used to treat a range of bite problems and tooth alignment conditions both mild and moderate, including:
Click on the smile questionnaire – take some pictures of your teeth and then we will get back to you with a quotation. If you wish to proceed.
Dr Marshall will invite you for a consultation at our East Molesey practice to assess your mouth, take a digital scan using iTero and provide you with a simulation of what your teeth could look like.
Your dentist will determine if the Invisalign treatment is suitable. If so, together we will begin to design a unique treatment plan custom made to suit you.
Clincheck Review – The unique ClinCheck® software allows patients to see their treatment plan from beginning to end even before the start of treatment.
We will either carry out this appointment via Zoom video call or at our clinic – whichever you prefer. We will also use this appointment to finalise any paperwork that may not be finished.
Start your treatment
The next phase will see the patient receiving a set of custom-made aligners that will be required to be worn every day. On average, you will swap out the aligners for the next series every 7 days.
Your Invisalign dentist will schedule follow-up appointments every 8 weeks to evaluate the treatment’s success.
Your smile transformed
Most adults will be able to see the results of the treatment within 4-12 months, but this can vary from case to case. Once the process is complete you’ll have a straight smile and a renewed confidence.
To protect your investment we will provide you with a set of retainers which will hold your teeth in place. These retainers should be used indefinitely to maintain the position of your teeth.
At the Gentle Dental, we have many different types of braces and payment plans available, making it easy to find the option most suitable for you.
Can Invisalign ruin your teeth?
As Invisalign promotes stronger oral health and improved hygiene, they are less likely to damage teeth compared to traditional braces.
Complications with Invisalign mostly occur when a patient is suffering from periodontal disease.
Our careful orthodontists ensure that the oral condition is in a good state before treatment.
The surgery is located within a seven-minute drive of Surbiton using the A307. Travelling to us by public transport from Surbiton train station will take you seven minutes. We are located close to Hampton Court train station. View directions here.
