Teeth Straightening

Beautiful straight teeth in Watford

A beautiful smile with straight teeth looks stunning.

If you have crooked, protruding or gappy teeth, you may think that teeth straightening with dental braces are not for you. But more adults from Watford, Moor Park, Chandler’s Cross, Bushey, Rickmansworth and throughout Hertfordshire are realising that teeth straightening now involves a much more updated approach.

Teeth straightening in Watford no longer means wearing painful metal braces which are fixed to your teeth for months.

Now, you can straighten teeth so discreetly that other people won’t know that you’re wearing braces.

Both of our adult braces involve wearing plastic, clear aligners that are inconspicuous, comfortable and won’t interfere with your life.

Which teeth straightening treatments are available at Watford Dental Practice?


Invisalign in Watford is our most popular option for teeth straightening for adults.
Invisalign is made up of a series of plastic aligners which are transparent and removable meaning you to take them out to eat, drink and to brush your teeth.

This revolutionary form of braces uses a digital scanner to create a 3D model of how your teeth look now and how, using the plastic aligners, they will change week by week to get straight teeth.

A set of custom-made aligners are constructed based on your digital scans. You then wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours a day, changing to the next set of aligners in the series every week.

Each set of aligners has a small difference from the previous set, and this allows for the gradual movement in the teeth straightening process.


SureSmile is a similar form of teeth straightening to Invisalign. It uses a series of plastic aligners which are worn and changed on a regular basis to gently move teeth into their ultimate position.
SureSmile, like Invisalign, is a discreet and comfortable form of teeth straightening.

At your consultation, your dentist in Watford can discuss which form of teeth straightening might be best for you depending upon the nature of your orthodontic need and what you are trying to achieve.

Benefits of teeth straightening in Watford

Patients from Rickmansworth, Bushey, Moor Park, Chandler’s Cross, Watford and Hertfordshire are choosing teeth straightening because:


  • Teeth straightening is now a far more discreet, comfortable and often a quicker experience than conventional teeth straightening using fixed and metal braces
  • Both forms of teeth straightening in Watford uses clear, plastic aligners which are practically invisible to others, meaning most people won’t know that you’re having your teeth straightened
  • Straight teeth will give you a lovely new smile and boost your confidence
  • Straight teeth are easier to keep clean and free from plaque giving you a better standard of oral health and less likely to suffer from tooth decay and gum disease
  • Invisalign and SureSmile won’t just straighten teeth, they can also help close gaps between teeth, space out overcrowded teeth and help with some bite problems
  • Teeth straightening with Invisalign and SureSmile means less trips to visit the dentist in Watford. Both methods give you several sets of aligners upfront and check in periodically to ensure that treatment is on track

FAQ's for Teeth Straightening

Are all adults suitable for teeth straightening?

Yes, most adults are suitable for teeth straightening. In rare circumstances, a patient with a severe bite problem may not be able to have teeth straightened using Invisalign or SureSmile.

How long does it take to get teeth straightened?

This is difficult to answer without first examining your teeth and assessing your orthodontic need, but on average most people using Invisalign or SureSmile dental braces, take between 6 and 12 months to get teeth straightened.

Can I get my teeth straightened on the NHS?

Unfortunately, adults cannot get their teeth straightened on the NHS and so must pay to have teeth straightened privately. Teeth straightening in adults is seen as a cosmetic dental treatment – one that is used to update the appearance of your teeth rather than affecting the health of your teeth. At Watford Dental Practice we offer 0% finance for up to 12 months for Invisalign and SureSmile to make teeth straightening affordable.

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!

Reception team were lovely. Spoke with the manager too who was a delight and very helpful, when i needed a refund for cancellation of a hygiene, as I was moving out of the area she explained in such detail of how the process worked. Thank you to everyone at watford dental.

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.

Always a wonderful experience with Watford dental practice. The receptionist staff are always helpful and friendly. I’ve just finished Invisalign treatment with Roshni who has been incredible. I’ll almost be sad to not be going back aside from for check ups! Very happy with everything from start to finish and would always recommend.

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

Watford dental practice have been our family dentist since it started. The service i get everytime I attend is second to none both from the customer facing staff to the clinical staff. Even with the very difficult challenges they face with Covid-19 protocols, We have always been dealt with professionally so I can only commend them to any prospective clients.
