If you’re looking to straighten your teeth but hate the thought of having to wear fixed orthodontic braces, then we have the answer. At Beyond Dental Care we provide the most efficient clear aligner solutions. Want to know more? Book a consultation with our experienced and caring team today!
What Are Clear Aligners?
Unlike ‘bracket and wire style’ orthodontic appliances that are fixed to the teeth for the duration of your treatment, our clear aligners are removable dental trays that are worn over the teeth, just like a mouthguard.
Their clear nature makes them very discreet, so discreet in fact that people won’t know that you’re wearing them unless you decide to tell them.
Both SureSmile® and Invisalign® clear aligners have a proven track record in fixing a wide range of bite problems including overbites, underbites, gapped and crooked teeth and each treatment is customised to your exact requirements.
How SureSmile and Invisalign® Clear Aligners Work?
After an initial consultation with our Beyond Dental Care team, we’ll suggest the right clear aligner treatment based on your requirements, needs and budget. Once agreed, we’ll then take a series of scans. Using the latest virtual technology, you can see what your smile will look like before treatment goes ahead. Once everything has been signed off, your clear aligners are custom made.
Unlike fixed orthodontic solutions where one appliance is worn for your entire treatment, SureSmile and Invisalign® involve multiple aligners – typically somewhere between 12 and 48 depending upon the length of treatment. Each clear aligner is designed to be worn in sequence and will move the teeth a designated distance. Once the first aligner has done its job, it’s removed, discarded and replaced by the next one in the series. This continues until the last aligner has been worn and you have the straight, healthy and brilliant smile you desired!
Usually, aligners are swapped out every one to two weeks depending upon the brand, and are worn for anywhere between 6-18 months.
The results are a hassle-free teeth-straightening experience that allows you to stay in full control until your desired result is achieved!

The Advantages Of Clear Aligners
Aside from the fact that clear aligners offer a discreet way of straightening teeth, there is a range of other benefits that include:
Both SureSmile aligners and Invisalign® are designed to be easily removed at any time. So while there are ideal wearing periods for optimal results, you are in full control of when and where you wear them.
No food restrictions
Because Invisalign® and SureSmile are designed to be removed when eating or drinking, you get to eat whatever you like. This means not having to avoid certain foods like popcorn or toffee that can otherwise wreak havoc with fixed braces.
Little or no discomfort
Unlike fixed orthodontic braces, clear aligners don’t need brackets and arch-wires to move teeth. As a result, there are no sharp edges that can sometimes catch the tongue or rub on the inside of the cheek. As such, you will experience little or no discomfort when wearing them.
In most cases where patients have the choice of fixed orthodontics or removable clear aligners, aligners will typically straighten teeth faster.
Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
