Stunning straight teeth with Invisalign braces in Watford

You may not have thought of having your teeth straightened, because you don’t want to wear ugly, metal braces on your teeth for months on end.

Invisalign is the new way to straighten teeth invisibly. They are made up of a series of thin, plastic aligners which sit over the top of your teeth and gently move your teeth into the correct position. They are so discreet that most people won’t know that you are wearing braces.

Invisalign are removable braces. You wear them for a minimum of 22 hours a day, but you can take them out to eat, drink anything other than water and to brush your teeth. They are more hygienic than traditional braces as food cannot get trapped.

We treat hundreds of patients from Watford, Bushey, Rickmansworth, Chandler’s Cross, Moor Park and throughout Hertfordshire for teeth straightening with Invisalign braces. Patients love the fact they are discreet, removable and because they are made from plastic, they are comfortable too.

How do Invisalign braces work in Watford?


The first step is to x-ray and take digital images of your teeth using Invisalign’s unique scanner.

These images will be uploaded to form your bespoke Invisalign plan. The plan will give you an indication of how your teeth will move and how long your treatment will last before you start wearing braces.

Create your bespoke Invisalign aligners

Your Invisalign plan is then used to create a series of bespoke plastic trays or aligners which are custom-made to fit your mouth.

Once your aligners are ready, they will be sent back to Watford Dental Practice where we can show you how to wear and remove your Invisalign braces.

Wear your Invisalign aligners

You wear each set of aligners for a minimum of 22 hours per day for a period of two weeks. You then move on to the next set of aligners in the series.

Each set of aligners is slightly different allowing for the gradual movement in your teeth.

You continue wearing your Invisalign braces in this way until you have reached the end of the series and your teeth have reached their final position.

What can Invisalign® fix?

Crowded teeth

Crowded teeth is a condition where you do not have enough room for your teeth to fit normally. This can cause plaque or tartar and other harmful bacteria to build up as it is harder for you to brush and floss well.

Gaps between teeth

Gaps between teeth is when there is extra space between two or more of your teeth. This can cause pockets between your teeth and gums and can cause food to get stuck making them tender and sore. This might also lead to gum disease.

Open bite

An Open bite is when your upper and lower teeth don’t touch when you close your mouth. An open bite can make it hard for you to chew or difficult to bite even the most common of food like apples.


An underbite is when you close your mouth and your lower front teeth are in front of your upper teeth. In many cases, this is actually a problem with your lower jaw being too far forward. An underbite can make it hard to chew properly and speak clearly, and it might cause your teeth to wear down more quickly.


An overbite is when your upper front teeth overlap with your lower front teeth. Most people have at least a little overbite. When your overbite is too large, your doctor might tell you you have a deep bite. This can cause problems, from your teeth wearing down to pain in your jaw.


A crossbite is when you close your mouth and yet some of your upper teeth are sitting inside your lower teeth rather than on the outside. A crossbite can make your teeth wear down or chip. It can also make your gums start to recede or make little notches above your gum line. This kind of damage can lead to painful gum problems or even bone loss.

Benefits of Invisalign braces at Watford Dental Practice

Patients from Rickmansworth, Bushey, Moor Park, Chandler’s Cross and Hertfordshire are choosing Invisalign braces because:


  • Invisalign is made from thin clear plastic which sit over the top of your teeth, making them extremely discreet. Most people won’t be able to tell that you’re having your teeth straightened
  • Invisalign aligners are removable so you can take your braces out to eat, drink anything other than water and to brush your teeth
  • Invisalign can be used to treat a range of orthodontic issues including overcrowded, crooked, misaligned and protruding teeth
  • There are no brackets, wires of elastic band with Invisalign so most patients find this form of teeth straightening more comfortable than conventional metal braces
  • You can maintain a better standard of oral hygiene with Invisalign as you can remove your braces and brush your teeth thoroughly as usual without any food getting caught in your braces
  • You don’t need to visit your orthodontist as frequently with Invisalign as you do with metal braces because you do not need to have your braces tightened. Instead, you’ll be given several aligners up front and only need to check in with your dentist occasionally

FAQ's for Invisalign

Why do I need to remove my Invisalign braces to eat and drink?

Your Invisalign aligners are made of a thin, transparent plastic so you risk chewing through them if you eat with your braces in. We recommend only drinking water whilst wearing Invisalign because anything else may stain your aligners which will make them unsightly and unhygienic.

It may seem strange to remove your aligners before eating, but you will quickly get used to it.

Are Invisalign braces suitable for everyone?

Most adults are suitable for Invisalign aligners, but we assess your teeth, jaws and bite before commencing treatment to make sure. A small percentage of people are not suitable for Invisalign, and this is usually due to a severe bite issue. If this happens, we can discuss alternative options. Children and young teenagers are not always suitable for Invisalign because their teeth and jaws are still growing.

How long will it take to straighten teeth with Invisalign?

This is difficult to answer without first seeing your teeth. On average, most patients reach the end of their treatment within 9 to 12 months. You will be given a more precise treatment time after your teeth have been scanned and before you commit to going ahead with Invisalign.

Wearing your aligners regularly and for a minimum of 22 hours a day can help ensure you stay on course with your treatment time.

Very impressed....very professional...very modern clean environment.... dentist was excellent...will stay with practice...
R Hirani is an excellent dentist who makes me feel at ease….I would highly recommend her and this dental practice
This practice and the staff were a complete life saver! I was suffering from impacted wisdom tooth pain, and unable to get an appointment at my usual dentist any sooner than 5 days time. I was referred here by NHS 111, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The receptionist was lovely, very empathetic and was able to get me an emergency appointment two hours later. My appointment was with Mr. Aftab Hussain, and he was superb! Diagnosed the issue speedily, provided me with the treatment, discussed preventative measures and how the issue would be treated if it occured again, and made me laugh. Excellent all around! Thank you so much!

Nishma S.
Had a really nice experience today at Watford Dental Practice. I am always anxious to visit the dentist and I was on this occasion too. However from the moment I was called in I was made to feel relaxed. The dentist explained everything to me and made sure I understood what was going on. The dentist was very gentle and I can honestly say the whole appointment was much better than I anticipated. I have recently changed to this dental practice and whole heartedly recommend them.

I’ve been coming to this Practice for over 20 years and have had the same Dentist all this time Mr Shah is fantastic always puts me at ease due to my health there has been times I’ve had to cancel at the last minute once the receptionist has spoken to Mr Shah who is very understanding a new appointment is made so I’m sure they don’t strike you off for medical reasons more like not turning up without an explanation I would always recommend this practice and of course Mr Shah

I would highly recommend Watford Dental Practice. I have seen most of the dentists here and they are all amazing and all go out of their way to make sure you get the best care possible. I would like to especially thank Aftab and Zara who have both recently done treatment on my teeth. You cannot tell that my teeth have been restored they all look completely natural and white.Aftab and Zara were able to fit me in quickly at fairly short notice so that I could start my ortho treatment. Thanks for always being amazing 🙂

The experience I had here today was fantastic! My appointment was with Zara and she is first class. As soon as I arrived I felt incredibly comfortable and like I was being looked after by a true professional. Zara’s knowledge, passion and interpersonal skills truly make her one of the best in her field. I couldn’t recommend her enough. I left with a big smile on my face and that’s how you should feel after the dentist. Ready to show of those teeth 😀
Barbara M.
I highly recommend this practice. It was my first choice when I moved to Watford as it came recommended from friends, and they have not let me down. I’ve been a patient for over 2 years and they have never failed to see me when needed. I recently had a crown fit, by Zara, who is an incredible dentist and a credit to the practice. The reception team have always been efficient and polite too!
Candice D.
I wouldn't go anywhere else than seeing Zara at this dental practice. She and the team were very professional, I felt that I was in good hands. Zara was very gentle and kind to me, explaining what was going on. Having a phobia of dentists and not returning to one in over 10 years I will quite happily return to see her again and not avoid a visit for another decade
