For adults who never achieved teeth straightening in childhood, invisible braces offer the new alternative. There are no unsightly metal bars or brackets to cause discomfort. Your teeth are gradually repositioned, giving you the smile you deserve.
Almost regardless of your age, your confidence and comfort can be boosted by realigning your teeth with invisible braces. Invisible braces/tooth positioners are not visible to the normal eye and are suitable for minor tooth movements to more complex cases. You can trust us to advise on the best treatment for your individual situation.
Invisible braces can be used to correct crooked teeth, close up gaps, re-position twisted teeth, improve overbites and underbites. All procedures are aimed to improve your smile and give you long-term comfort.
Invisible braces, or clear aligners, are often preferred to traditional metal braces because they are more comfortable to wear, with no metal or sharp edges and are virtually invisible. They are specially fabricated to fit your teeth and to gradually move them into the desired position.
As part of our treatment we provide retainers to be worn at night after the treatment has finished. This ensures that your teeth remain in the correct position and that over time they do not shift.
