Inman Aligner - 3 month Smiles


Are you someone who is longing for a beautiful, straight smile?

We are proud to introduce a new and leading edge cosmetic dentistry procedure that is taking the UK by storm – The Inman Aligner. This revolutionary concept sees misplaced and protruding or crowded front teeth transformed in a matter of weeks, ( mostly between 9 to 12 weeks ) saving the need for the tooth removal veneers and crowns require.

Only £1400-including retainer

So how does it work?


The Inman Aligner is a clear plastic retainer with two spring loaded aligning bars that fit easily over the front four teeth. It provides a constant gentle pressure on the teeth, easing them back into place over a period of around 3 months or less.

The Inman Aligner is easy to use and can be inserted and removed at any time, allowing eating and brushing to continue as normal. Once teeth have moved to the desired position, a very discreet retainer holds them in place, so they remain in their new position.

What happens at the various appointments?

During the first consultation, an impression is made of the teeth and in the second, teeth are smoothed to make room for movement and the aligner fitted. For the duration of the treatment fortnightly visits are required to review and adjust the aligner.

Finally, another set of impressions is required for the permanent retainer to be made by the Inman laboratory. This is then fixed to the back of the teeth so as to be invisible and so the teeth are finally held in their new position .
As an alternative- and still only taking around 3 months to complete- we offer Quick Straight Teeth- a tooth coloured fixed bracket and wire system. It allows easy speech and works 24/7.Otherwise the appointments are roughly the same as the Inman  Aligner. We try to finish both types of case with a fixed wire retention which is cemented behind the teeth.
