A charming smile is about more than simply looking and feeling good about yourself, however important that may be; our teeth are responsible for breaking down our food, allowing us to speak clearly to our audience and even shaping our faces, so keeping them in top condition is paramount. Teeth maintenance should be a vital part of our daily routine, but what about if you want to go one step further and achieve that straight, gorgeous smile you’ve always wanted? If you aren’t beaming at every opportunity then Smiles Better is here to help.

This wealth of experience is on display with the wide range of treatments they have on offer, their friendly staff dedicated to making your experience as easy and comfortable as possible while you wait for your smile to return to its dazzling state.

One such treatment on offer is orthodontics, with Invisalign leading the way on transforming your smile with as little discomfort as possible. The most advanced clear aligner system in the world, backed by more than two decades of innovation, Invisalign® clear aligners are able to position your teeth whilst being virtually invisible. There are no wires and brackets, so you don’t need to change the way you brush and floss, and you can even continue to eat all your favourite foods.

Beginning with a consultation with an Invisalign®-trained Doctor, your smile will first be evaluated and then the doctor will map out a precise, customised digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your smile. Once you approve your plan, your unique aligners will be created. You will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by your doctor.

Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, until you reach your beautiful new smile. Depending on the complexity of your case, you could complete your treatment in as little as 6 months but you'll start seeing results within a matter of weeks.

If you’ve been persuaded by the ease of a removable aligner, you might want to consider how you’d go about it. An award-winning practice, Smiles Better can accommodate everyone regardless of their dental dilemma, and that’s what puts them one step ahead of the rest, says Practice Manager Andrew Lazenby.

“We’ve got a multitude of specialisms, with some of the most advanced technology and equipment all under one roof. We’ve got everything we need right here so that we can cater to everyone, for any issue they might have.”
