What is Invisalign and can you get it from our dentist in West Byfleet?


If you are looking for a discreet way to straighten your smile, then here at Byfleet Dental Boutique, we can offer you the Invisalign treatment to help with this. Your dental boutique dentist in West Byfleet will take care of you and help you through the whole process, and make sure you are comfortable and knowledgeable about it before you begin. Invisalign has really helped our patients to efficiently and effectively straighten their teeth, with minimal discomfort.

How does it work?

Firstly, as with any dental treatment, we will have a consultation appointment with you so that we can discuss everything with you and take some scans. This meeting is vital in making sure that we can examine your teeth and ensure you are eligible before continuing. This is also a good opportunity for you to ask us any questions you may have regarding the treatment. We will take scans or X-rays to get a detailed picture of your teeth, which enables us to then create a precise plan for how your teeth will be straightened over time with each aligner.

Once you and your dentist in West Byfleet have completed the consultation appointment and you decide to go ahead with the treatment, we will send the scans to the dental laboratory where your customised aligners can be created. The aligners are made out of a thin, clear plastic that fits snugly around your teeth for added comfort.

When your aligners have been created, your dentist in West Byfleet will give them to you and then you can change each set from the comfort of your own home. We recommend that you wear the aligners for around 22 hours a day, which may sound like a while, but due to the soft, plastic material used, you will barely notice they are in. You can easily remove the aligners whenever you need to, which is very handy when it comes to eating. You can simply take your aligner out, eat whatever you want to, give your teeth a brush and pop them back in. It’s as simple as that! The average treatment time varies from 6 months to a year depending on your specific needs, and during this you will usually be changing your aligners every 2 weeks.

Here at Byfleet Dental Boutique, we take pride in creating a comfortable and sympathetic environment within our dental practice. When you choose to straighten your teeth, you want to use a dental practice that you can trust, and you can do just that here. Our team is dedicated to delivering treatments of the highest quality for you to enjoy.

What are the advantages?

When you choose Invisalign to straighten your smile, there are so many benefits for you to enjoy both during and after the treatment. One of the main ones being that due to the thin, clear plastic used, they are very discreet and other people will not even be able to tell that you have them in. This is great if you have a more sociable lifestyle/career and don’t want to draw added attention to your teeth. The comfort of these aligners is also a great benefit, as there is nothing metal or sharp used that could damage your mouth.
