What are Clear Aligners?

Clear Aligners are discreet and comfortable braces that gradually move your teeth to their desired position. Our clear aligners are made by UK Dental Laboratory with experienced orthodontists using state of the art computer software to gently guide your teeth into position. There are no metal brackets involved and so are hardly noticeable, giving you your new smile without affecting your confidence.

The Benefits of Using A Clear Aligner?

  • Invisible, the people around you do not know you have braces and your smile in not affected.
  • Comfortable, the movement of the teeth is very gradual and therefore comfortable and also there are no mental brackets to rub on the cheeks and cause soreness.
  • Removable, they are easily removed for eating and effective cleaning of the teeth.
  • Custom Made, all your aligners are designed from precise scans at the practice to allow careful planning to achieve your desired smile.

Our 4 Step Clear Aligner Process

Strategic planning is an important step in the phase of any treatment. Below outlines our 4 step Clear Aligner plan.


At your initial appointment we will take the time to discuss your clear aligner treatment, take X-rays, photographs and a digital scan of your teeth.


A virtual 3D image will be generated to help you visualise the movement of the teeth from the start to the completion of the treatment. With your approval we will have the Aligners made. The number of aligners needed will vary from person to person.


We will provide you with a series of Aligners. You will wear the Aligners for 22 hours a day. The Aligners will be taken out when you eat and clean your teeth. Each Aligner will be worn for 2 weeks.


When the teeth have reached the desired position we will provide retainers to maintain your new smile.
