When you look in the mirror, are you happy with the appearance of your smile? If the answer is no, then you may have been frustrated about having teeth that aren’t aesthetically pleasing. The technology involved in addressing misaligned teeth is an area of dentistry that is burgeoning, and at Elegance Dental, we have been at the forefront of change. For mild or moderate alignment issues, such as crowded teeth, gapped teeth, crossbites, overbites and underbites, for example, we could offer you Invisalign Hertfordshire. We are part of the exclusive MiSmile Network, which has treated over 10,000 patients and is the only GDP network that has been endorsed by Invisalign Align Technology. Choosing Invisalign Hertfordshire with us could, therefore, be a savvy choice for you if you are looking for an experienced dentist with a proven track record.
Free smile assessment
Of course, you will need to first discover whether or not Invisalign Hertfordshire is the appropriate treatment for you. We offer a free smile assessment, which includes us x-raying your mouth followed by a thorough oral examination. We will then take photos of your teeth as they currently appear, including how your bite works and then use a digital scan that utilises iTero technology. This scan will allow us to acquire the measurements we need for your removable aligners to be made, and with this, we can also show you an animation of what your smile will look like by the end of the treatment before you’ve even started it. This Invisalign outcome simulator can be very enlightening, helping you understand the benefits of choosing Invisalign. We then upload the photographs and the digital scan to our ClinCheck software, which identifies how many aligners you are likely to need, as well as the movements in your teeth that will be made. It’s hi-tech stuff that is entirely free whether you decide to proceed with Invisalign or not.
How Invisalign works
If we believe that Invisalign is the suitable treatment for your alignment needs, and you are happy to proceed, then you will have bespoke aligners made for you. When you wear them, the aligners should be virtually invisible as they will be made of transparent plastic. The aligners will apply pressure to your teeth to push them into the correct positions. You will need to change your aligners every couple of weeks, and you could see results in as little as 6 to 18 months. You will be able to remove your aligners before you have a meal or clean your teeth, and you should also have enough time to take them out for other activities as long as you wear them for 22 hours daily. Invisalign offers you convenience for these reasons, as well as discretion, which may be important to you if you go to school or are heading in to work for your next board meeting.
