Worn by over 5 million people around the world, Invisalign comes as a series of clear aligners that are custom-made to your individual smile for optimum comfort.
Each aligner is worn for 1-2 weeks before being replaced by the next in the series - gradually moving your teeth towards their projected final position within as little as six months.
Unlike fixed braces, there are no metal wires or brackets. This means they are virtually invisible when you wear them. Also, Invisalign aligners can be removed briefly for you to eat, brush your teeth and attend special occasions.
Custom-made to move your teeth little by little, Invisalign works in the following ways:
Accurate - with Invisalign treatment, your teeth are straightened using a pair of transparent aligners which are custom moulded to the exact shape of your teeth using 3D computer imaging.
Gentle - every fortnight the aligners are replaced by the next pair in the series so that your teeth are gradually moving and straightening without pain or discomfort.
Efficient - the use of aligners exerts a controlled force on the teeth at different stages in the process, which means that only certain teeth will be allowed to move quickly and efficiently.
As your Invisalign dentist in Leicester, we understand how important your smile is to you, and that you might be conscious about having fixed braces in your mouth as an adult.
It is for this reason that we believe in providing Invisalign Clear Aligners, so that you can smile throughout your entire orthodontic treatment without worrying about how you look.
