Invisible, metal-free teeth straightening in Catford, Lewisham and South East London – Invisalign offers a discreet and convenient way to straighten your smile.
Metal-free teeth straightening
For many, the word ‘orthodontics’ conjures images of teens in terrifying braces – but with Invisalign, all that has changed. With no wires, no brackets and no braces, Invisalign offers a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. It’s like the secret agent of orthodontics! Discreet, fast-acting and convenient, Invisalign works by using a series of invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that no one will be able to tell you’re wearing.
At the Penerley Road Dental Practice, we’re certified providers of Invisalign. We’ll take impressions of your teeth at your initial consultation and then custom-craft a prescribed number of aligners. Each set of aligners must then be worn for approximately two-to-three weeks. After each incremental period of time, you’ll need to return to us to collect the next set. Each set of aligners builds on the work the previous set has done to gently straighten your smile.
Because it’s almost invisible, the Invisalign system is ideal for anyone with a lifestyle that wouldn’t suit traditional metal braces. They’re also removable for eating or cleaning your teeth – and you can even go brace-free for special events.
Invisalign is a cosmetic treatment designed for the front ‘smiling’ teeth – so if there are deeper problems concerning bite and function, your dentist may recommend an alternative treatment.
This is dependent on your individual case, but typical treatment times are around 9 months. You’ll need to have a permanent retainer fitted behind your teeth after treatment to maintain the results.
