Invisalign: The virtually invisible teeth straightening solution!

Do you want to straighten misaligned teeth? Are they overcrowded or widely spaced? Do you have a crossbite, an underbite, or maybe widely spaced teeth; or perhaps you have a deep bite? If any of these are issues concerning you about your teeth, The Garden Dental Practice may have a solution for you; Invisalign in Golders Green. This is a brace system that uses clear plastic aligners which are fitted bespoke to you, they apply gentle pressure to move your teeth into position. You will change your aligners approximately every 2 weeks and you can remove them when you eat and drink - forget the difficulty of keeping your teeth and gums clean with fixed braces! What’s more, they are virtually invisible when you’re wearing them as they are made of clear plastic. Nobody needs to know you are wearing them, unless you decide to share your secret!

If this sounds appealing, we’ve got some detailed information to help you decide if this might be the solution for you.


As an adult, taking the plunge into wearing braces may feel overwhelming. You might be feeling as though you should have tried this out at school, not when you’re sitting in your office. This is where wearing clear braces really comes into its own; people will find it difficult to spot that you are wearing them and while you are, you are working your way towards a smile that shines! To find out if you are eligible for this type of treatment, you will need to visit us for a case assessment, where we will take some photos of your mouth to determine whether or not this is right for you.


If we decide that you are good to go with clear braces, then you will have X-rays and digital scans made of your teeth. From this, we can produce a 3D video, using state-of-the-art technology, to show you how your teeth will look after treatment - it’s not a bad way to get you motivated to wear them! From this, your aligners will also be made uniquely for you. You will need to change them every 1-2 weeks at home and come in for check-ups every 4-6 weeks. You need to wear them for about 22 hours a day, removing them for eating and drinking, and perhaps when you do something special or are playing sport. Either way, the aligners fit in with your lifestyle as they discreetly work their magic while you get on with your day. Once your treatment using Invisalign in Golders Green is completed, you will need to also wear retainers.

Are they comfortable to wear?

Because aligners are made to fit your mouth precisely, they are comfortable to wear. The technology in Invisalign in Golders Green has been used since 1997 and over 2.5 million people across the world have been happily treated using them.

What next?

If you think this all sounds appealing - straightening your teeth with clear aligners that people are highly unlikely to notice - then why not contact us at The Garden Dental Practice for your case assessment? We will be delighted to chat to you about your concerns surrounding your teeth and we’ll gladly answer any questions that you may have, before checking if this is the treatment for you.
