    We are a Platinum Invisalign Provider

    An Invisalign platinum provider Dr Blandy is an expert in improving smiles with Invisalign – the clear alternative to braces.The Invisalign System is the nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth and improve your smile – without braces. Invisalign treatment works through a series of clear, comfortable and removable aligners that are custom made as per Dr Blandy’s treatment plan. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position.If you want to show off your smile and not your braces, make an appointment with us to find out more.
