An attractive smile can make you feel happier and more confident. Crooked, out of line teeth can now be straightened more discreetly and in a shorter period of time with modern orthodontic treatments.

Crooked or misaligned teeth can affect your confidence and can make you feel self-conscious about smiling. Crowded teeth can also be difficult to clean. Some adults may feel they missed the opportunity to straighten their teeth at a younger age, but with the latest treatments you can improve your smile and start feeling more confident long after your teenage years.
Invisalign straightens teeth through a series of custom-moulded aligners that are nearly invisible and easy to remove. The clear aligners are non-intrusive and comfortable to wear as there are no metal wires or brackets. They are very effective at straightening teeth without anyone knowing you are wearing braces. We now also have an iTero scanner which means no more messy impressions and more precise treatment.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is for patients looking to discreetly correct misaligned teeth in the shortest amount of time. As the name suggests, most patients only need to wear the braces for six months whilst they gently straighten crooked teeth. They are comfortable to wear and provide fast results as they only realign the teeth that show when you smile. The treatment uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that are barely visible.
The Inman Aligner is a removable appliance that quickly and safely straightens the front teeth. As it can be taken out, the treatment can fit around your lifestyle.
You will need to book your free consultation so that we can determine the most appropriate treatment option. Once confirmed, we will create a detailed treatment plan for you.

The latest orthodontic treatments are quick and safe, making straighter teeth and a beautiful smile much easier to achieve. They are also much more discreet than traditional braces.
Once your teeth have been aligned into the perfect position, you will need to wear a retainer at night to keep your teeth from gradually moving out of position while the surrounding gums and bone settle. You can then expect your teeth to remain straight for many years to come. We advise all of our patients to book regular routine appointments to maintain the perfect smile.
This will vary on the treatment selected and also on the on the severity of your case. The Invisalign treatment will typically take between 9 and 18 months. Inman Aligners can generally straighten front teeth in as little as 6 to 18 weeks.
