Inman Aligner: when speed is of the essence

No one likes the idea of spending up to two years wearing braces, especially if you’re an adult with work and lifestyle commitments that aren’t compatible with a mouth full of train tracks. That’s where the Inman Aligner comes in, offering a discreet teeth straightening solution that can fix crowded or crooked teeth in just a few months! The Inman Aligner is a removable, spring-loaded retainer-style brace, designed to treat the front four upper or lower teeth. Because treatment is focused on correcting the most visible part of your smile, treatment times average just 6-16 weeks!

ClearSmile Aligner: when looks really matter

The ClearSmile Aligner uses clear, made-to-measure aligners (similar to Invisalign®), which sit over the top of your teeth and are barely visible when worn. Commonly referred to as invisible braces, they’re removable for when you want to eat or clean your teeth, too, so you won’t experience the kind of hygiene problems traditional braces can cause. If your lifestyle commitments mean fixed braces are out of the question, ClearSmile Aligner offers the perfect solution for your front ‘smiling’ teeth, with treatment times in the region of months, not years.
