Invisible braces in Clapham and you, Houdini!

Invisible braces in Clapham and you, Houdini!

There are many reasons why people may be reluctant to realign their smile when they are worried and anxious about their misaligned teeth. For some, it can be the prospect of having to have the inconvenience of adapting to wearing braces, for others it can be the fear of people thinking that they look terrible with a mouth full of metal – surely that’s only right for a nemesis in a Bond movie?! 

Thankfully, there is no need to put up with misaligned teeth or suffer the potential embarrassment of wearing metal braces. There are invisible braces in Clapham that can bring you the joy of an improved smile and most people won’t know how you did it – magic!


While there aren’t any white rabbits or great escapes required for wearing Invisalign, the excitement might not be too far behind. Invisalign consists of clear plastic aligners which, when worn, apply pressure to your teeth to move them into the correct position over time. They are comfortable to wear as they sit on the gum line having been made bespoke to fit your mouth thanks to iTero technology, where a 3D scan takes the measurements for your aligners. During the consultation where this takes place, you can also view an animation of how your teeth will look once treatment has been completed. There are so many reasons to feel like shouting, ‘Hey, presto!’ 

Other benefits of Invisalign are that you can remove the aligners whenever you need to. It means that you can remove them for eating so you don’t need to change your diet or clean off masticated food! What’s more, you shouldn’t have too many issues with them breaking as they are made of plastic rather than metal wires and brackets.

Damon Braces

For some people, wearing braces with brackets may be required, depending on the type of alignment issue that you have. But, don’t despair! This doesn’t mean that you have to endure aesthetically displeasing braces. Damon braces comprise of clear brackets that have a mechanism that slides to connect archwires to the brackets. This means the wires can move freely and you won’t need elastic ties either. When you wear them, people will hardly notice thanks to the transparent brackets that are used.

What do I need to do?

If you fancy finding out more about the options available to you, you don’t need to join the Magic Circle; instead, book in for a consultation with your dentist to explore the options available. An initial consultation will probably involve scans, x-rays and, in some cases, impressions. You will also be able to ask your dentist for the low-down on what options are available to you, as well as ask any questions about the recommended treatments. It is most important that you feel confident in any treatment plan that you opt for as you need to be committed to making the most of the opportunity to realign your teeth. 

While you may not be able to wave a magic wand to get the results you’re looking for, you should be rather pleased with the magic of using discreet, comfortable and effective methods of realigning your teeth. Get ready to say the magic words – (not, abracadabra!) – Yes, please!
