If you have ever dreamt about having a straight smile, then Invisalign Hertfordshire might be the treatment for you!
When we were children, it might often have seemed that wearing braces was normal. We might even have been jealous of our friends who had them! Some adults might look back at that time and wish they had had the opportunity to receive a teeth straightening treatment, if only to avoid the self-consciousness they may sometimes experience due to their misaligned teeth now. Here at Elegance Dental, we want nothing more than to have you leaving our practice with a smile from ear to ear. We understand that our patients may have a variety of concerns before starting a treatment with us, which is why we’re always on hand to ease your worries.
Getting straight teeth doesn’t have to be a traumatic experience, especially as an adult. If having braces sounds daunting, in a world where first impressions are very important, the clear aligner alternative found with Invisalign Hertfordshire could be the breath of fresh air that you’ve been waiting for.
How do I get started?
If you’re itching to get started with your Invisalign Hertfordshire journey, you could begin by getting in touch with us. From here, we can get you an appointment set for your initial consultation, where we can get to know you, your dental history and see the kind of misalignment that is affecting your teeth and mouth. This time is just as much for you as it is for us, meaning that you should ask any questions that pop into your head, no matter how trivial they might seem.
The smile assessment will take place just before your clear aligners are set to be created. During this time, we will take X-rays to check your oral health as well as pictures of your teeth and bite, before taking a digital scan of them. All of this information will be sent over to the aligner team, who will make your unique aligner based on everything we will find out during this assessment. What is even more exciting, however, is that we can offer you an outcome simulator, allowing you to see first hand how your future smile will look.
How do they work?
Similar to braces, the clear aligners work by adding pressure to your teeth and moving them into their desired position. Unlike with braces, however, that need to be adjusted over time to keep your teeth moving, all you need to do is swap each aligner for the next set indicated. Don’t worry about knowing which set to use, though, as we will provide all the information required to keep your teeth straightening journey moving smoothly.
What are the benefits?
One of the benefits that makes this treatment so unique is that the aligners are nearly invisible. If you are concerned about people looking at your mouth or making comments, you can let this go as nobody will be aware of the aligners unless you want them to be. As mentioned previously, braces need to be adjusted within the practice, but our clear aligner alternative removes the need for constant visits, as when the time is right, you just have to switch your aligner. A lack of metal means that they are even more comfortable within your mouth, especially as they are made to fit your teeth precisely.
