An introduction to Invisalign at Elegance Dental


Are you considering straightening your teeth, but unsure about the best dental treatment available for you? Maybe you have gaps between your teeth or crowding or overlapping teeth? Whatever your situation at Elegance Dental we provide dental treatments within general and cosmetic dentistry for all the family, as well as facial aesthetic treatments to help you achieve your desired outcome.

A bit about us at Elegance Dental

Our practice, Elegance Dental is based in Hertfordshire and we provide our patients and visitors a high quality dental service using the latest dental technologies. We are proud to provide a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere so our patients feel comfortable when arriving for their dental treatment.

If you are a new patient at our practice we offer an introductory consultation in order to get to know you better. Our consultation will consist of us carrying out a full dental examination using intraoral cameras, a digital scan and a low dose digital X-ray in order for us to determine any dental issues you may currently have. We will also carry out a gum health assessment and an oral cancer screening during this consultation and you will be asked to complete a medical history questionnaire which is completely confidential. As we understand how an individual’s general health can affect their oral health, it is important for us to obtain this information through a questionnaire for our records.

This consultation will also give you the chance to voice any concerns you may have, and discuss anything about your teeth you may like to change cosmetically. If you are in need of dental treatment, we will recommend the treatments which are most suitable for you. If you have crooked or crowded teeth or your teeth have gaps, you may want to consider one of the adult cosmetic orthodontic treatments like Invisalign Hertfordshire which we offer at Elegance Dental.

Invisalign at Elegance Dental

Considered to be the most trusted clear aligner system, Invisalign Hertfordshire uses Align Technology’s 3D computer technology in order to create a unique 3D treatment for our patients. At Elegance Dental we offer a Free Virtual Consultation, you can then proceed to book your inhouse smile assessment prior to the Invisalign treatment.

The smile assessment costs £100 and will include one of our dentists carrying out an oral health examination of your teeth by using X-rays, along with taking photos of your teeth and bite and conducting a digital scan of your teeth. No messy impressions. The smile assessment will also be able to show you a simulation of how your teeth will look once you have completed the treatment.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign in Herts uses sets of clear removable aligners which gradually shift your teeth into their desired position. The aligners are custom 3D printed just for you and during the treatment you will be required to wear the aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day for best results. Each set is generally worn for around 7 days. At Elegance Dental we utilise Dental Monitoring using a Scanbox and your phone. So your treatment progress is checked on a weekly basis without you having to visit the surgery.

Invisalign is a very popular orthodontic treatment for our patients as they are clear and discreet, so often undetectable to others . As they’re removable, you can maintain good oral hygiene throughout your treatment and they don’t interfere with your lifestyle as you can eat whatever you like. As they are custom 3D printed they fit very comfortably and don’t interfere with your speech.
