Invisalign Teeth Straightening
Straighten your teeth with clear, comfortable aligners. Invisalign® uses multiple sets of aligners that gradually move your teeth to the desired position.
This discreet orthodontic technique uses a series of custom-made aligners to gradually move your teeth into a new improved position. Invisalign can be used for all cases; crowding, gaps, uneven smiles and more. As it is a less noticeable way to straighten your teeth, it is suitable for adults or teenagers who may feel self-conscious about wearing other types of braces. Invisalign braces are especially loved by teenagers as they are almost invisible, the aligners don’t break as easy as other braces and teeth can be cleaned just the same without them. So many of our patients ask us about them and they’re so pleased when even their family don’t notice they have them in!
Invisalign braces are fitted on an individual basis. Here at Lighthouse Dental Practice, we use state of the art Trios 3D scanner to scan your teeth to create a bespoke appliance adapted to you. These innovative aligners can also be taken out, so you can maintain your oral hygiene as normal, eat whatever you choose and remove them for special occasions.
Treatment times can vary but most cases are usually completed within 6-12 months. However, you do have to be sure to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day to benefit from successful and speedy results. You will also need to wear a retainer following treatment to keep your newly aligned teeth straight.
