When it comes to orthodontic treatment, we want all our patients to enjoy the best results and this is why we offer the world’s leading treatment systems. One of our most popular treatments is Invisalign, a clear aligner system that moves the teeth without anyone being able to see a brace.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an invisible alternative to fixed braces and uses a series of aligners to re-position and realign the teeth. These aligners work in a set order to gradually move the teeth into the desired position. Each aligner is different, but all are worn for two weeks and treatment is planned in advance, so you can see images of the treatment process and get an idea of what your smile will look like once you remove the last aligner for the final time.
This system is hugely popular because it provides patients with an option that eliminates anxiety and worry about image. With these aligners, the look of the smile won’t change and you can go through your treatment without suffering from a lack of confidence when you smile or speak to people.
What is so good about Invisalign?
Invisalign is simple, effective and invisible. The aligners cannot be seen, which gives you more confidence once you start treatment, and they are removable, so you have control of your treatment and can enjoy more flexibility than with a fixed brace. Invisalign aligners contain no bands or metal parts and they are suitable for patients with a wide range of orthodontic issues, from minor and moderate crowding to spaces between the teeth.
How does treatment work?
The treatment process is fairly straightforward and involves wearing each aligner in a set order for two weeks at a time. The aligners should be worn for a minimum of 21 hours per day and removed when you intend to brush your teeth or eat.
Many people around the world suffer from crooked teeth. Crooked teeth can spoil the beauty of your smile and also the way you feel about yourself and can be a serious self-confidence breaker. One of the most popular and effective ways to treat crooked teeth is Invisalign. Invisalign treatment involves the use of clear plastic aligners that are fixed around the teeth in order to gently push them back into position.
Patients who do not want to use metal braces can opt for Invisalign, as the greatest advantage of Invisalign is that they are almost invisible. However, not everyone can use this technique to fix their teeth. If you are a patient from London and have issues with your bite or severely rotated teeth, Invisalign might not be the best option for you. The best way to find out is by consulting a dentist.
How it works
First the orthodontist will create a 3D image of your teeth and then a lab technician will use the mold and the 3D map to make clear plastic retainers specifically designed according to your teeth’s size and shape. The retainers will be securely fitted onto your teeth and will slowly and steadily move the teeth into perfect alignment. As the teeth moves into place, you will need to get new aligners, with new aligners required every two weeks. They must be worn at all times, except while drinking or eating, in order to get fast and maximum results.
Many patients with crooked teeth have benefited from Invisalign treatment. If aligners are properly worn as per directions and if they stay on your teeth except for eating or drinking, then the results will start to show within weeks.
It’s impossible to predict the time required for this treatment to be completed, since every case is different. However, before the treatment begins the dentist will be able to give you an approximate completion time. On average an individual would need 20-30 aligners for both the upper and lower teeth, so it may take somewhere in between 12 to 18 months
What would you say if we said we could straighten your teeth in just 5 simple steps? This may sound too good to be true, but with Invisalign, achieving a stunning smile really is that easy.
5 steps to a straight smile with Invisalign
Step 1: At your consultation, we will carry out some tests to see if you are a good candidate for Invisalign and explain how the treatment works, what benefits it offers and how it could impact your smile and your confidence. If you want to go ahead with Invisalign, we take photographs and impressions of your teeth and these are sent away to the Invisalign laboratory.
Step 2: Invisalign software covers the photographs and impressions of your teeth into detailed models used to create your bespoke removable aligners. When your aligners are ready, they are sent back to us. Most people have between 12 and 48 aligners.
Step 3: We fit your first aligner and your treatment begins! We will explain how to use your aligners, when to take them out and how to keep them clean and of course, we will be happy to answer any questions you have.
Step 4: you wear your aligners every day for at least 22 hours, removing them when you eat and brush your teeth. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks. We arrange progress sessions every 6 weeks or so to se how you are getting on.
Step 5: you remove your last aligner for the last time and your treatment is complete! Congratulations, you can now start showing off that fabulous new smile!

Invisalign treatment involves a simple process: you are given a sequence of aligners, each of which is worn for two weeks at a time and then replaced until treatment is complete.

Invisalign has been developed with the needs and preferences of patients in mind and provides a solution to any of the complaints commonly made by dental patients.

Invisible braces have taken the world by storm, but what’s so good about them and how do they work?
About invisible braces
One of the main reasons people used to put off having orthodontic treatment was the prospect of wearing highly visible, unattractive braces. Today, patients can enjoy treatment without this concern, thanks to amazing invisible braces, like Invisalign.
Invisalign is a modern orthodontic system, which offers a solution for all those patients who dread the thought of showing off a metal brace every time they smile. With Invisalign, you can get the smile you’ve always wanted without anyone else even knowing you’re having treatment because the braces are made entirely from clear plastic. Invisalign aligners slide onto the teeth in a similar way to a gum shield and once they are in position, they are virtually impossible to detect. This means you can do presentations at work, sit in interviews and enjoy social occasions without any anxiety related to what you look like or how you come across.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign adopts a different approach to other orthodontic systems in that it uses a series of appliances, rather than a single brace. Each patient is presented with a set of custom-fit aligners, which work in a set sequence. The aligners are made based on a personalised treatment plan, which is created using the latest imaging software.
Each aligner is slightly different and this allows room for the teeth to move. The aligners gently encourage the teeth to move into position and by the time you take the final aligner out, your teeth should look amazing.
The treatment process is simple and hassle-free. You wear the aligners in order, replacing each one after two weeks. It is best to remove the aligners when you eat and brush your teeth, but you should take care to ensure the aligners are in place for a minimum of 21 hours per day.
The advantages of Invisalign
There are lots of benefits to be enjoyed with Invisalign, from amazingly discreet aesthetics and improved confidence to impressive results, convenience and a lower risk of oral health problems. With Invisalign, you can enjoy treatment in secret and get a beautiful smile without having to adapt your normal day to day routine. You can eat, drink and brush your teeth just as you used to and you don’t have to worry about what other people think of your braces or how you look.
If you like the sound of Invisalign, why not call us and book a consultation?
If you are interested in Invisalign, the best thing to do is to book a consultation. The consultation is an informal appointment where you get to meet your dentist, learn more about the treatment and other potential options and ask any questions you may have.
What will we talk about during my Invisalign consultation?
A consultation is nothing to be worried or anxious about and there’s no pain involved or dreaded dental drill encounters. We simply have a chat with you to talk about the treatment, why it could benefit you, how it works and what treatment entails. In order to make sure you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment, we carry out some basic tests (such as X-rays or scans) to ascertain more information about your bite and the nature and complexity of your orthodontic needs. Invisalign has many benefits for patients, but it is sometimes not the best option if you need a lot of movement, so it’s essential to carry out these tests and examinations in order to achieve the best possible results for you. None of the tests are painful and your dentist will explain exactly what they are looking at and why the tests are required. They will also discuss their findings with you, so you have a sound understanding of your dental needs and you can learn more about why orthodontic treatment could be beneficial.
During the consultation, your dentist will outline the stages of treatment, talk to you about what actually happens to your teeth when treatment is underway and discuss issues such as cost and projected treatment time with you. They are on hand to answer your questions, so fire away and don’t be afraid to ask questions you think sound silly or aren’t relevant. If you want to know the answer to a question related to your treatment in any way, our dentists will help.
Once you are clear about the ins and outs of treatment and are sure you want to go ahead with Invisalign treatment, we can set the ball rolling and make impressions and take photographs of your teeth. These are then sent away to the laboratory in the USA and we will await the arrival of your custom-made Invisalign aligners shortly after.
Few people are blessed with perfectly aligned teeth, but thanks to modern treatments it’s now easier than ever before to achieve a beautiful smile. With innovative systems such as Invisalign on offer, we are able to straighten out orthodontic issues with minimal disruption to your look or you normal daily routine.

If you ask anyone that has ever had to endure wearing traditional fixed braces in Chepstow, two issues will always crop up.
