Clear Braces Glasgow

newimage4Our practice

Here at our practice in Glasgow City Centre we specialise in clear braces and can offer either our Six Month Smiles or Invisalign.

Six Month Smiles

Six month smiles involves using a clear brace system to straighten your teeth in around 6 months. This is generally half of the price of what metal traditional braces are and they are more visually appealing.

When you come to us for six month smiles we will assess your suitability, take some photographs, X-rays and examine your smile. We will also discuss whether or not six month smiles is suitable for you, if it is then we will discuss the treatment time and the costs that are involved with the treatment.

If you decide to go ahead with six month smiles then we will arrange for you to get fitted with six month smiles braces which are clear brackets and white wires that come directly from the Six Month Smiles laboratory in the USA. After the braces have been fitted you will be asked to visit us every 4-5 weeks for a short 10-15 minute appointment, during this we will carry out regular adjustments of your braces until the treatment is complete.

Invisalign

Although invisalign are another form of clear braces they are completely different in the sense that they involve using clear retainers to straighten the teeth instead of using wires.

Before a treatment plan can be created we will take an impression of your teeth, this will check whether or not they can be straightened using Invisalign. If you are suitable then we will put together a treatment plan which will show a series of movements that your teeth will go through during the course of the treatment. The benefits of this is that you will be able to see how your teeth are expected to look at the end of the invisalign treatment before treatment has even begun.

When treatment begins you will wear a set of custom-made aligners in two week increments. As you progress through the treatment your teeth will move gradually until they are in the final position.

You will be expected to come into our practice in Glasgow City Centre for regular check ups, this will allow us to monitor your progress and will make sure that you are comfortable with the treatment.
