The quick, safe, comfortable way to make minor adjustments
Clear Aligners, which look like transparent gum shields, are designed to straighten your front 6 to 8 teeth – with no discomfort or rubbing from metal or bars. Using exact impressions taken by a dentist, Clear Aligners will straighten teeth that are tilted backwards or forwards, or teeth that are crowded or rotated. And because Clear Aligners are transparent no one will know you’re wearing them – unless you tell them!
How Clear Aligners work
Clear Aligners are custom made to fit snugly over your top or bottom teeth, applying constant, but gentle and precise, pressure to ease teeth back into position.
Before treatment starts you will be able to view a simulation of the end result; if you’re happy with what you see, your aligners will be made using the latest 3D printing technology.
During treatment you must wear your Clear Aligners throughout the day; they should only be removed for eating and cleaning or for special occasions.
Are Clear Aligners for me?
Everyone’s teeth are different, so a straightening consultation with Dr Grant will determine whether Clear Aligners or an alternative straightening treatment is best for you. During the consultation, which costs £30, Dr Grant will listen to your hopes, needs and concerns and really take the time to explain and advise on what’s best for you.
