Clear Brace Orthodontics
Do you have a sticky-out tooth or mis-aligned teeth? Do you wish you’d had a brace as a child? Or did you have a brace and your teeth have moved back? Then teeth straightening or orthodontics is the likely to be appropriate dental treatment for you. At Sleep Lane Smiles we use a number of Orthodontic solutions for teeth straightening including Invisalign®, Cfast®, Smilelign, and Inman Aligner.
Call the dental practice now for an orthodontic consultation on 01275 891820 where we can discuss the appropriate solutions for you and the cost of treatment. We normally recommend teeth whitening at the end of the treatment to give you a bright and straight smile.
Teeth straightening, known within dentistry as Orthodontics, traditionally used metal brackets and ugly wires to straighten your teeth. By contrast Smilelign is an invisible orthodontic aligner system that uses the latest technology on the UK dental market. Smilelign’s revolutionary clear brace aligner gives you the straight smile you always dreamed of. Smilelign is practically invisible, so people won’t even know you’re having your teeth straightened.
How does Smilelign work?
- Smilelign treatment is completed with a series of virtually invisible, removable aligners.
- The aligners are changed every two to four weeks for the next stage.
- The process can take as little as 10 weeks depending on the alterations required.
- Each aligner is carefully designed for your teeth and will move your them in very small increments little by little, week by week.
- You will wear the clear aligners until they have moved your teeth to the final position prescribed by your dentist.

You may have heard about the new ‘invisible brace’ and wondered what it is all about. If you have teeth that are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing conventional braces, Invisalign® may give you a new reason to smile!
Because it is nearly invisible almost no one can tell you are wearing Invisalign®, so you can smile more during as well as after your treatment. You can remove Invisalign® so you can eat and drink what you like, and studies have shown that it can be better for your dental hygiene during treatment. With no metal or sharp edges, Invisalign® is comfortable to wear and does not cause allergies.
The convenience and ease of use have made it the choice of over half a million people, giving hundreds of thousands of people amazing new smiles.
How does it work?
Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign® uses your dentist’s instructions to create a series of custom made removable mouth trays (aligners). These aligners apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth, causing them to move. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position.
How long will Invisalign® take?
Invisalign® only works while you wear the aligners. We recommend they are worn full time day and night (min 22–24 hours).
Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks, (before moving onto the next in the series), moving your teeth millimetre by millimetre, week by week, until you reach your desired result.
Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average Invisalign® treatment is nine to eighteen months.
During treatment you should visit us periodically, until it is determined that your treatment is complete.
Once active treatment is complete, there may be some fine tuning to create that perfect smile.
