Having misaligned teeth can affect people’s self-esteem; avoiding camera phone wielding opportunists, keeping your mouth shut while you smile or spending time staring in the mirror wishing you could change the appearance of your teeth may be some of the relatable signs. For some people, they may think that they don’t mind their teeth being misaligned since they missed their chance at high school to get things sorted and there’s no way you’ll be having a mouth full of metal now; there’s nothing that being a bit of a bon viveur can’t cure – smile and the world smiles with you, after all. At Elegance Dental, we understand that patients have different reasons for considering realigning their teeth, but for those with mild to moderate alignment issues we can offer a discreet and convenient solution with Invisalign in Hertfordshire. So, even when you think you don’t need to bother improving your smile, why not find out how effective and simple Invisalign can be in getting your smile the one to watch?
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign consists of sets of clear plastic aligners which are worn over the teeth and fit snugly on the gumline (a bit like rugby mouth guards, but far more streamline and comfortable). In fact, they are made bespoke to fit each person’s mouth which is why they fit like a glove. Each aligner applies a varying amount of pressure to the teeth to gently push them into alignment over a period of time. Invisalign is suitable for those with mild to moderate alignment issues such as crossbite, under or overbite, overcrowding or gap teeth.
What are the benefits of choosing Invisalign in Hertfordshire?
While it may not be a treatment option for everyone, Invisalign does have a lot of plus points for those who are eligible for treatment. The biggest plus point is that they are barely visible to anyone else when you are wearing them. This means that you can go to work, meet friends, even go on a date, whilst wearing your aligners. They also only need to be worn for around 22 hours a day meaning that you can remove them when you eat and drink and for other periods of time as and when you need to, offering you flexibility to suit your needs. This means that you can avoid having to clean your aligners after food you’ve eaten and it also means that you can brush and floss as normal, allowing you to continue with your oral hygiene routine.
Another benefit of Invisalign is that it can be a quick course of treatment. Before you begin treatment, we will give you a Free Smile Assessment, which will include the iTero scan. If you decide to go ahead with treatment, we can create a 3D animation of what your teeth will look like upon completion of treatment before you even start! As members of the MiSmile Network, we are proud to be part of the only GDP Network that is endorsed by Invisalign Align Technology. You will gain a natural looking smile both from the alignment of your teeth and, we hope, because you want to smile more with pride. Over 10,000 patients in the network have been treated and are smiling improved smiles with Invisalign.
