Invisalign®

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

You may have heard about the new ‘invisible brace’ and wondered what it is all about. If you have teeth that are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing conventional braces, invisalign® may give you a new reason to smile!

Because it is nearly invisible almost no one can tell you are wearing invisalign®, so you can smile more during as well as after your treatment. You can remove invisalign® so you can eat and drink what you like, and studies have shown that it can be better for your dental hygiene during treatment. With no metal or sharp edges, invisalign® is comfortable to wear and does not cause allergies.

The convenience and ease of use have made it the choice of over half a million people, giving hundreds of thousands of people amazing new smiles.

How does it work?

Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, invisalign® uses your dentist’s instructions to create a series of custom made removable mouth trays (aligners). These aligners apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth, causing them to move. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position.

How long will invisalign® take?

Invisalign® only works while you wear the aligners. We recommend they are worn full time day and night (min 22–24 hours).

Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks, (before moving onto the next in the series), moving your teeth millimetre by millimetre, week by week, until you reach your desired result.

Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average invisalign® treatment is nine to eighteen months.

During treatment you should visit us periodically, until it is determined that your treatment is complete.

Once active treatment is complete, there may be some fine tuning to create that perfect smile.

To our Patients of NW London Smile Centre,

Our team have been working tirelessly to keep our Dental Practice a safe environment for you. As a Dental Practice, we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything we do. In addition to our usual meticulous cross infection measures, we have been paying particularly close attention to all government guidance and updates related to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Given the unprecedented situation in the UK, we feel it is essential that we do our part to reduce the spread of this virus and so. it is with very heavy hearts that we have taken the decision to postpone all routine examinations, treatments and hygiene appointments. This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we feel it is our responsibility to protect you, our valued patients, our team and all our families.

However, looking after the health of our patients is our absolute priority and so we will be maintaining a remote telephone service advice for emergencies only; these include:

  • Severe pain for over 48 hours
  • Facial Swelling
  • Trauma and uncontrolled bleeding

Should you have any of those above please contact our telephone triage service on 07702 207 233

We understand this is inconvenient and it may mean outstanding treatment timelines are extended but we will reconvene normal service as soon as it is safe to do so. If your appointment needs to be postponed, one of our team will be in touch shortly.

Thank you for all your support during these uncertain times.

Please stay safe, please stay at home and we look forward to seeing you all soon!
