What Are Invisible Braces?
Invisible braces are an orthodontic treatment in which the patient wears a series of clear, removable aligners that straighten the teeth. Also known as clear aligners, they can also help to improve the bite as well as the overall aesthetic appearance of your teeth. For many years, people have wanted and looked for a discreet solution to correct their teeth as an alternative to traditional braces.
At Smile Cliniq, we are happy to provide this with invisible braces in London, UK, which will help to restore your smile confidence even whilst wearing them. As a leading cosmetic dentist, we can help assess your suitability and provide high-quality, long-term results.
Benefits of Invisible braces London over fixed braces:
- They are clear – meaning they are much less noticeable when wearing
- No cuts or abrasions – wires or brackets in traditional braces could cause minor discomfort, so clear aligners are more comfortable to wear with no cuts or abrasions experienced.
- The aligners are removable – allowing you to eat, drink, brush and ﬂoss with freedom.
Disadvantages of invisible braces London over fixed braces:
- Not suitable for severe misalignments – depending on the degree of your misalignment, clear aligners may not be able to provide the results you want, with other orthodontic treatments possibly recommended.
- Not suitable for complex cases – if you have multiple issues with your teeth, you may require other treatment first before going ahead with invisible braces.
Clear Aligner Treatment Use
To be a successful candidate for invisible braces London treatment, during your consultation we will assess your suitability for treatments. Clear aligners are ideal in the following circumstances:
- Mild to moderate dental irregularities
- Crowding which can be corrected with mild to moderate expansion of the dental arch
- Crowding which can be corrected with reductions in tooth width (Inter-proximal reduction or slenderising 0.1-0.4mm)
- Mild spacing
- Aligners are most commonly used in cases needing alignment of teeth without extractions.
What Types of Invisible Braces in London Are There?
Invisalign uses custom-made, clear aligners to gently align your teeth. They are virtually invisible, and you can remove them when you eat and drink. It’s one of the most popular invisible braces in London, UK, due to its convenience and stealth-like aligners.
The aligners from Invisalign are comfortable to wear, moving teeth gently into the correct alignment. The dentist will monitor the progress of your Invisalign treatment to ensure optimal orthodontic pressure is applied for beneficial results.
Lingual braces are attached behind your teeth, completely out of sight. Cast-gold brackets are custom-made to fit each tooth for maximum comfort and discreetness. Your invisible braces in London will be almost impossible to spot, even up close.
Lingual braces, or incognito braces, are used to correct severe orthodontic irregularities and bite issues. They give teeth a beautifully symmetrical look to enhance smiles in the same way as traditional braces, but without noticeable fixtures to the front of the teeth.
Clear aligners and braces are just like traditional braces, but even more discreet. The metal brackets are swapped for clear, ceramic braces. No matter the shade of your teeth, your braces will blend into the background for a subtle alternative to classic train tracks.
Using Invisible Braces Instead of Generic Train Tracks
Invisible braces have proven to be effective in many patients worldwide, with clear aligner technology helping to straighten teeth that are crowded, rotated, tilted forward, or backwards using impressions (moulds) taken by the dentist. Custom-made clear aligners are then fabricated from the impressions, using scanning software that plans tooth movements in advance.
