Invisalign is one of the most popular discreet orthodontic devices available. At Aesthetic Smiles in Leicester this is just one of the ways our skilled dental team can straighten your teeth without the whole world knowing you are undergoing treatment.
The problem with metal braces
Braces remain an excellent way to straighten teeth. However, as well as being effective, traditional metal braces are also pretty obvious in your mouth in everyday life. Whilst teenage patients often enjoy being able to personalise and customise their braces, older patients can find the concept of wearing obvious metal devices for an extended of period of time distressing to the point where they decide to just put up with crooked teeth.
At Leicester’s Aesthetic Smiles we are always keen to point out that there are health benefits as well as aesthetic ones to straightening your teeth. In a nutshell, straighter teeth are easier to clean, which helps to minimise your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease, thus diminishing your chances of tooth loss.
However, we also understand and empathise with the concerns of people who do not want to wear obvious metal braces. That’s why the dentists at our Leicester practice offer a number of more discreet ways to straighten your teeth. Invisalign clear aligners are a very popular and effective option.
How Invisalign works
Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. They are made from clear plastic and are custom-designed to fit perfectly over your teeth.
Your dentist will prescribe you a series of Invisalign aligners. The exact number of aligners will depend on the amount and type of correction required, and your dentist will tell you how many you will need when you start treatment.
You need to change your Invisalign aligners regularly, and pay frequent visits to our Leicester dental practice to monitor your treatment. You also need a retainer at the end of treatment.
If you are looking for a fast, invisible way to straighten your teeth, you may be interested in Invisalign clear aligners. At our Leicester dental practice we offer a wide selection of discreet orthodontic treatments. Clear aligners are a hugely popular choice with busy adults in need of orthodontic help.
What is Invisalign?
There are a number of clear aligner systems available, and Invisalign is one of the leading brands. Unlike other systems, such as the Inman Aligner which consists of a single aligner or Six Month Smiles clear braces, with this system you will be given a series of aligners that you change regularly as your teeth start to move. Your dentist will tell you how frequently you need to change your aligner.
A huge benefit of Invisalign is that it is removable. This means that as well as not having to come into the dental practice every time your aligner needs changing, you can also take it out to clean, to brush your teeth and to eat and drink.
If you are considering adult orthodontic treatment, your first step should be to book a consultation at Aesthetic Smiles in Leicester. One of our experienced dentists will conduct a thorough assessment of your smile and will recommend the appropriate treatment.
Patients who are treated with Invisalign will benefit from being able to see what results to expect before treatment begins, thanks to the exclusive ClinCheck software, which uses photographs and 3D imaging to show you the projected outcome.
When your aligners are ready, your dentist will advise you on how long you need to wear each aligner for. This is usually a period of two weeks. If you are interested in treatment with Invisalign, please book a consultation with one of our Leicester dental team and take the first step towards your beautiful new smile.
Adults who want to straighten their teeth are turning in droves towards Invisalign braces. These revolutionary orthodontic products move your teeth into a more desirable position gently, quickly and discreetly. At Aesthetic Smiles dental practice in Leicester, we have treated many happy patients with Invisalign, giving them the straight teeth they have always dreamt of.
Many patients, when asked by their dentist what they would like to change about their smile, reply that they would like straighter teeth. They often wrongly believe that, having missed out on orthodontic treatment as a child or teenager, there is no help available to them, or that if there are treatments available they will be highly inconvenient and noticeable, too much for a busy adult’s lifestyle.
At Aesthetic Smiles we have treated many happy patients from Leicester and beyond who want straighter teeth. Invisalign Braces can be used to treat both adults and teenagers with mild to moderate orthodontic problems. These braces are clear, custom-made to fit your teeth and are removable, which means you can take them out to eat and to clean your teeth.
What are Invisalign braces?
Invisalign comprise a series of clear aligners or braces that are made to fit your teeth exactly. They gently move your teeth into a new position, and you change your aligner every couple of weeks as your teeth move.
Invisalign braces are removable, which means you can take them out yourself to eat, to clean them, to brush your teeth and for short periods for social occasions. However, you should always follow your dentist’s advice and wear them for most of the time, or your treatment will take longer.
At our Leicester dental practice you can even see the results you can expect before starting treatment, using special computer technology.
