Teeth straightening in Cheshire

Teeth straightening, also known as Orthodontics, involves wearing appliances to straighten crooked or crowded teeth. It can also correct gaps between your teeth and common issues like protruding front teeth or a deep bite.

Say goodbye to crooked teeth and hello to a confident smile.

If you had a choice, would you wear braces on your teeth or clear aligners?

If your answer is clear aligners, you’re not alone. Clear aligners have grown in popularity over the past couple of decades as an option for straightening or realigning your teeth.

Invisalign® can be used for a variety of purposes, including crowding and spacing issues, as well as some mild to moderate bite issues

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the brand name of a type of thin clear aligner used in orthodontic treatment. The aligner is made from a flexible thermoplastic material named SmartTrack.

As the name suggests, this product is designed to make orthodontic treatment less conspicuous.

Although Invisalign aligners may not be completely invisible, these clear coverings fit tightly over your teeth and are much less noticeable than the brackets and wires of traditional braces.

Cottage Dental is an official Invisalign® provider.

What’s involved with wearing Invisalign?

The first step in the process involves a visit to our Dentists with a Special interest in Orthodontics, who will create a 3-D image of your mouth and jaw.


They’ll use this image to put together a plan for moving your teeth into their proper place.

They will then use that plan to create a series of customized plastic aligners. These aligners will apply carefully managed pressure to your teeth, gradually shifting them and moving them into the desired places.

Depending on our orthodontist’s instructions, you’ll switch out one set of aligners for a new set about once every week or two. Typically, you’ll need to wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day.

What can affect how well Invisalign works?

For Invisalign to work effectively, it’s important to wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day.

The only time you’re supposed to remove Invisalign aligners is when you’re:


The complexity of your orthodontic issues may also affect how well Invisalign works for you. It may take longer for this treatment to work if you’re dealing with more complex spacing or bite issues.
