Local Teeth Straightening Dental Practice
Options for straight teeth using invisible, clear braces - Ashby, Burton and East Midlands
Teeth can grow into crooked positions or sometimes become more overlapped or crowded with time.
As well as a poor smile, crooked teeth can affect the health of teeth, gums and jaw joints, particularly as they are more difficult to clean around.
In the past people used to put up with crooked teeth as the treatment often involved months or even years with unsightly fixed braces.
Now we can offer appliances designed for adults to straighten teeth. If you live locally and are researching invisible braces in the Derby, Burton or Ashby area, please call our friendly team!
Your Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dental practitioner.
What’s more, a virtual 3D treatment plan (ClinCheck© treatment plan) shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment.
This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. From the results of the ClinCheck treatment plan, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you.

If you're ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other treatment works as comfortably as Invisalign.
Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life.
Check out the benefits below
- Invisible, so no one can tell you're straightening your teeth. So now you can smile more during treatment as well as after.
- Removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are no problem. Comfortable, because it has no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments.
- Invisalign® also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
- You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
- As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed.
- You'll visit your dentist about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
- Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case

Crooked teeth make many people feel self-conscious, reserved, or even ashamed of their appearance. There are various solutions to treat crooked teeth but most take at least 18 months if not 2-3 years with conventional orthodontic treatment or clear braces. However the latest in orthodontics - 6 month orthodontics or six month smiles can give you the smile that you want in a fraction of the time taken with conventional treatments.
Six Month Smile Braces utilises clear wires and brackets to gently straighten teeth in an average time of only six months! By focusing on the teeth that show when you smile and not making significant bite changes.
