What Is Teeth Straightening?

Many people have crowded or crooked teeth or, their teeth don’t meet correctly when they bite. These problems can mean that the teeth are more likely to become damaged or put a strain on jaw muscles. This is in addition to any cosmetic concerns regarding the appearance of the teeth.

Teeth straightening itself is a cosmetic dentistry procedure used to correct the position of your teeth. Here at Zenith, we offer a range of teeth straightening procedures including Invisalign, CFast, Inman Aligner and Six Months Smiles. Our dental team work with you to recommend the best teeth straightening service to give you quick straight teeth, and work towards achieving your dream smile.

How Long Does Teeth Straightening Take?

Your exact treatment will depend on the current problems with your teeth. The length of any treatment is usually between 3-18 months. We do our very best to get you quick straight teeth.

We will discuss your exact requirements as part of our consultation, but we offer a range of treatments including:


Invisalign is a teeth-straightening treatment available in Nottingham and London. It works by straightening teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position. The treatment time for Invisalign is typically between 6 and 18 months. You can read more about our Invisalign treatment here.

Find out more about what you can expect from Invisalign treatment by taking a look at this video:


Cfast is a simple, gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that corrects alignment issues with the top and bottom front six teeth, and can level and round out the arches, thus satisfying the needs of the vast majority of adult patients who seek orthodontic treatment. Cfast, as the name suggests is quick teeth straightening procedure and you should see a significant improvement in your smile in just 6 months.

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a single appliance that can be removed and inserted easily. It can be used to quickly align teeth either as a standalone treatment or before aesthetic or restorative treatment. This revolutionary treatment can be completed in as little as 6 - 16 weeks. However, it is worth bearing in mind that this particular teeth-straightening procedure isn’t for everyone, it’s only suitable for mild orthodontic problems affecting front teeth. Whilst it isn’t as discreet as Invisalign, it is an extremely fast-acting treatment.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is a clear brace that's designed to straighten your front teeth in around six months. The treatment involves the fitting of tooth-coloured brackets and wires that remain largely unnoticed during treatment, making this a popular choice. The procedure involved in Six Month Smiles help to correct the positioning and alignment of teeth when smiling, and unlike alternative teeth straightening procedures, the time needed to correct the teeth is much shorter.

Teeth Straightening Side Effects/Risks

Again, this depends on the treatment you receive, but generally, the risks associated with cosmetic dentistry are minimal. Side effects can include a small amount of discomfort, swelling or pain from the anaesthetic, but your dentist will work with you to minimise any discomfort.
