Patients hoping to attain straight teeth in Belfast are now able to take advantage of the revolutionary Invisalign 'invisible' braces treatment here at Creative Smiles. Invisalign removes the need for metal wires or brackets, giving patients a discreet treatment for cases when they have misaligned or crooked teeth.
Mark Gilbert, owner and leading dentist here at Creative Smiles, has been trained to the highest calibre when it comes to Invisalign, in order to make sure patients are given the best possible results. Invisalign is the discreet way to correct crooked teeth by using a sequence of specially made, almost entirely 'invisible' aligners.
What does treatment involve?
Upon initial examination, Mark will need to ascertain whether Invisalign treatment is suitable for you. This will depend on the severity of each individual case. If Invisalign is deemed inappropriate for your particular case then Mark will be able to discuss other alternative orthodontic treatments available. However, if you are given the thumbs up for treatment then a treatment plan will be created and impressions will be taken. Then, the impressions will be delivered to Invisalign in the United States in order for your aligners to be created.
Using the most recent technological advances in 3D computer technology, the impressions and instructions as sent by Mark will be carefully translated at the Invisalign dental laboratory into a sequence of precisely specially made aligners. Each aligner will need to be worn in the sequence as prescribed by Mark. After two weeks of wearing an aligner it will be time to move onto the next one, in order for your teeth to move accurately and steadily. As time goes by, millimetre by millimetre, you will achieve the intended result and you can bask in the glory of your straighter teeth.
Can the aligners be removed?
You can remove your Invisalign aligners during treatment and can therefore take pleasure in an assortment of your favourite foods. This also makes the task of maintaining oral hygiene much simpler. However, Mark and our other experienced dental staff do recommend that you wear each aligner for 22 hours each day in order to achieve the best results.
‘’ I was very unhappy with my smile and really wanted to have my teeth straightened without using metal braces. I opted to have the Invisalign clear brace which I wore for 1 year. I finished off by having my teeth whitened and I am happy to say that the end result was better than I could have expected. The staff at this practice are very friendly and made me feel at ease. I had a fear of coming to the Dentist but don’t mind at all now’’.
‘’It has changed my life completely and for the first time in 10 years I can hold my head high and smile!!’’
‘’I always disliked my teeth and had zero confidence when smiling. Since having the clear invisalign braces, tooth whitening and my existing crown replaced, I now feel confident in conversing, especially in my job in the bank. I can smile fully and love all the compliments I receive!! This practice is very welcoming and pleasant. I was always made to feel at ease, 100% satisfied with every aspect. It has made such a difference to my life, well done Creative Smiles I am extremely grateful to you all!’’
After seeing the Invisalign brace being worn by a friend and how clear it looked I decided to have a consultation at Creative Smiles to see if I was suitable as my front tooth sticking out really annoyed me and I felt the shape of them overall had changed over time.
I am really happy with my end result and with the treatment I received here at this practice. All the girls and Mark have been really helpful. My treatment has been a complete success as I am now way more happy and confident with my teeth
''I had always wanted my teeth straighter but did not want to wear metal braces so I was recommended to Creative Smiles by my own Dentist as she was aware that Mr Gilbert provided patients with invisible tooth straightening options.
I went ahead with invisalign braces. Throughout my treatment everyone was friendly and I am so pleased with the outcome and the entire process. I would recommend Creative Smiles to all my friends and family. Since having the treatment carried out I am much more confident when I smile and when getting my photo taken!''

The staff were always so helpful and quick to respond to any enquires I had. I am delighted with the outcome. It is far beyond what I ever expected and since having the treatment carried out it has made me more confident. I do not mind smiling for pictures anymore, thank you all very much!''
