Are you fed up of showing crooked teeth when you smile? No need to put up with it any longer… You can have beautiful straight teeth and a fantastic smile with Invisalign clear braces.
The reason why Invisalign® is so popular is because the aligners are incredibly discreet. They are made from a patented clear acrylic which means most people will not even notice that you are wearing them.
Our Invisalign team is led by Dr Hannah Wilson and we are very proud to have helped our patients achieve long lasting smiles. We are one of only a few dental practices in the UK to provide the latest Digital Dental techniques enabling us to perform Dentistry with optimum precision.

Invisalign® is the most popular adult orthodontic system used to straighten teeth. It is a series of custom-made, nearly invisible, removable aligners (braces).
Another advantage with Invisalign® aligners is that you can remove them easily to eat and brush your teeth, resulting in little disruption to your daily life.
At Infinity Dental Clinic we are able to treat a wide range of patients using Invisalign®. As long as you have healthy teeth and gums you are most likely to be suit able.
CONSULTATION: At your initial assessment you will have a full dental examination, x-rays, photographs and impressions taken. This will be uploaded to the Invisalign CLINCHECK® software. Invisalign CLINCHECK® is a specially designed computer programme which allows you and your practitioner to precisely design your future smile using 3D animation.
The CLINCHECK® software will show you a 3D image of your smile before and after treatment.
INITIAL FITTING OF THE ALIGNER: You will be fitted with your first aligner and shown how easy it is to wear and remove. You will then be given 4-5 aligners to take with you and given clear instructions on how often to change these. You replace your aligner every 2 weeks and your teeth will start to move.
REPLACEMENT ALIGNERS: You will attend the clinic every 2 months for an assessment and be provided with the next 4-5 aligners.
Treatment with Invisalign® can take between 4-18 months depending on the amount of tooth movements required.
COMPLETION OF TREATMENT: You will now have your NEW STRAIGHT SMILE. At Infinity Dental Clinic we can also provide teeth whitening to enhance the appearance of your new smile.
It took time, skill and investment to create your beautiful straight smile. Removable Vivera® retainers are worn at night to prevent any future movement of your teeth. Vivera® retainers are made from the same patented technology as Invisalign® aligners, this means that your smile is protected with the most reliable and comfortable material available.
You can expect some aching and tenderness in the gums as the teeth begin moving. This usually lasts for the first 3 days after a new aligner is worn. Painkillers can be taken if required.Book for a complimentary consultation with our experienced treatment coordinator
Invisalign® aligners are comfortable to wear as there are no wires or brackets. They are virtually invisible so most people will not even notice you are wearing them, but they are sure to notice your NEW STRAIGHT SMILE.
“I’ve just completed 20 months of Invisalign treatment, I know that seems like a long time but my teeth were really awful and now they’re absolutely perfect.
After years of smoking, drinking all the wrong things and a fear of dentists but also being too embarrassed to see one. Took the plunge and visited 3 dentists for advice and quotes. One dentist made me feel awful to the point I had a panic attack. Infinity – Jasmine was so lovely at point of contact and Dr Patel just seemed so nice I felt really comfortable so signed up. I’ve never once felt nervous there and the treatment took longer than originally expected but Dr Patel wasn’t quite satisfied so decided on a few amendments to get the best results. Invisalign really works but you have to follow the treatment plan and it can be difficult as it’s quite a lifestyle change and in the first couple of weeks can feel sore but worth it.
My teeth are now straight and now that Dr Wilson has finished my teeth off with composite fillings to make them even they now look natural, straight and white.
Infinity is a welcoming and friendly practice. Dr Patel and Dr Wilson are brilliant at what they do and are not satisfied with anything less than perfect. On the plus side there’s plenty free on street parking.
One regret I have is I wish I’d taken the plunge sooner and had my teeth fixed years ago. In short it’s worth every penny. Massive thanks to everyone at Infinity.” – Rachel Cleary
