What are Invisalign braces?

The convenience and ease of use of the Invisalign system have made it the choice of over half a million people. In fact, Invisalign has been effective in giving hundreds of thousands of people amazing new smiles.

If you have been looking into orthodontic treatments, you may have come across Invisalign before and wondered what it’s all about. It is generally acknowledged that whilst braces help to improve your smile, in the long run, one of their main drawbacks is their appearance in the short run.

Traditionally, braces are made using metal, plastic or ceramic brackets. These brackets are fixed in place to the front of the tooth and a wire is then held between them. Whilst braces are clinically proven to deliver very effective results, many prospective patients are afraid to wear them as they do not like the idea of their appearance during treatment.

At Stourcote Dental Practice we offer a solution as our trained clinicians can fit you with Invisalign which will give you a beautiful smile as conventional braces will, but without compromising your appearance during the treatment.

Invisalign offers the patient a series of clear, removable aligners which are changed every 2-3 weeks. There is no tightening to be done, no changing of wires and no elastic bands to get in the way. Instead, all of the adjustments are made with one new aligner every few weeks.

Since the aligners are clear they are hardly visible in the mouth at all and will fit perfectly against your teeth. As each aligner is individually moulded to specifically fit each patient, Invisalign is much more comfortable than conventional braces.

Invisalign programme

Invisalign offers a complete cosmetic orthodontic programme. We will begin with the most important part of straightening your teeth with the series of Invisalign aligners. After this stage has been completed, we will whiten your teeth (if required), followed by any recontouring (if required) to truly give you that perfect smile!

You will then have the choice of having removable or bonded (our preferred choice) retainers to help maintain your new smile. This is already included in your treatment plan.

How long do treatments take?

The time needed for Invisalign to work its magic will depend on the severity of the patient’s case. This means that cost will also vary from patient to patient as some people will need many aligners and others will require just a few.

Testimonials

Excellent service and COVID safety all in place. On time appointment and friendly team as always.

Sue, Working Feedback

Brilliant service! I wasn’t a patient at this practice when I phoned for my initial appointment, but I had a dental emergency and was not getting the right care at my previous practice. Stourcote Dental fitted me in for an appointment fast, identified what needed to be done, and sorted me out. They were friendly and caring from start to finish. Everyone I dealt with was lovely, I’ve never had such great dental care. I’m terrified of going to the dentist so extra special thanks for taking care of me. I’ll be a lot less nervous when I come back!

Jess, Working Feedback

I’ve been a patient and my children have too and i must say that the reception staff especially Ann are wonderful. So helpful, friendly and polite all the time. Their customer service is second to none.
Viz the dentist I’ve been seeing is amazing so kind and caring and a perfectionist. Boys treatment under NHS has been very slow. There was an admin error at the beginning which delayed their treatment but not sure who’s fault that was but Ann has been a great help moving this forward. Obviously due to Covid its not a priority by any means. Thank you for your hard work and adapting so swiftly all the time.

Alison, Working Feedback

I recently joined Stourcote after a traumatic experience with another dentist. From the outset they were really welcoming & listened to my concerns & demonstrated that they wanted to help.
I’ve now seen Manisha a few times & even though I’m a ridiculously nervous patient (I started crying as soon as I sat in the chair today), she was so lovely and understanding. I felt safe, in control & comfortable.
I will never enjoy visiting the dentist but Stourcote have made it manageable for me, so I can’t recommend highly enough.

I have suffered some awful mouth sores over the past week and I was pleased with the very prompt appointment today (Monday) that I was provided with, having raised an online request only on Saturday.
On Saturday evening, one of the doctors (Dr Jandu?) phoned me and helped me with a recommended course of action and he followed through by making me the appointment with Matthew Walker today. I was greeted in a friendly, upbeat manner by the dental nurse and I felt very reassured after today’s visit. Mr Walker will phone me in a week, to see how things are progressing.
Overall an excellent level of care and all “very joined up”.
