If you want straight teeth and a beautiful smile but you’re not keen on wearing traditional fixed metal braces, then Invisalign was designed for you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment system that consists of a series of very thin, removable, clear plastic aligners for wear over your teeth. The aligners gradually shift your teeth and gently realign them into your new, desired position. Each aligner is custom-made for you and replaced every two to four weeks from one of our London clinics.
Invisible braces, visible results
When we first tell our patients about Invisalign, many of them think it sounds too good to be true. But the results speak for themselves, and results are what you get here at The Kensington Orthodontic Clinic! The technology of Invisalign and other invisible braces (like Transaligner™) means they work for most cases, but the result you receive is still heavily dependent on the experience and expertise of the practitioner who is treating you.
Here at The Kensington Orthodontic Clinic, our specialist orthodontists are highly experienced in the use of Invisalign and, for the most part, can recommend it as a treatment method to fix both major and minor cases.
To begin with, Invisalign aligners are removable. This means you can take them off to eat, pose for pictures and go out for special occasions. What’s more, unlike traditional braces, you don’t have any restrictions on what you are and aren’t allowed to eat!
Invisalign also gets faster results than traditional braces. Although total treatment time is different for each patient, the average treatment time with Invisalign is 9 to 15 months. Here at The Kensington Orthodontic Clinic, we also offer even faster orthodontic treatment using Fast Align and Lingual Fast Align braces. These can achieve results in as little as four months.
Invisalign aligners are made from clear, medical grade plastic which means they’re comfortable to wear. Thin and smooth, there are no irritating metal wires or brackets that can rub against the inside of your cheek. Plus, they’re custom-made to your teeth so they’ll be the perfect fit!
The biggest benefit is the fact that they’re virtually invisible. Friends, family, co-workers, none will be any the wiser to the fact that you’re having your teeth straightened, unless you choose to show them that is – (or maybe if they look really closely).
Our highly qualified and experienced specialist orthodontists can achieve great results using Invisalign but the treatment isn’t right for everyone. At your consultation, we can examine your teeth and recommend the best orthodontic treatment just for you.
