Your secret to a beautiful smile is Invisalign®

We know many of our patients worry about the look of traditional braces and the impact it will have on their lifestyle. At Dan Smethurst Orthodontist, we are a leader in Invisalign® treatment – the technology that enables you to achieve straighter teeth discreetly!

Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic method that uses clear aligners to straighten teeth without the need for metal braces. These aligners are custom-made to your teeth using clear, medical-grade plastic and are designed to offer flexibility that fits your lifestyle.


How does Invisalign® work?

At the start of Invisalign® treatment, your orthodontist uses specialised computer software to design a plan for moving your teeth from their current positions into the best possible alignment. With your treatment broken into a number of stages, your orthodontist will have you wear a different set of plastic aligners every few weeks to accomplish gradual movement. 

Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, and you will remove them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move, little by little, until they have straightened to the final position we have prescribed.

Benefits of Invisalign®

Once we have introduced Invisalign® to many of our patients, it is an easy choice for them to make. Invisalign offers so many benefits, including:

  • Discreet: the virtually invisible aligners blend in with the colour of your teeth, meaning many people won’t even know you’re having treatment.
  • Effective: Invisalign® aligners achieve the same results, if not better, then traditional metal braces, so there are no disadvantages to wearing them.
  • Convenient: being able to remove the aligners makes it easy to continue your lifestyle. Simply take them out at meal times or when speaking in public.
  • Hygienic: because the aligners are removable, you can brush and floss without any metal appliances getting in the way.
