A beautiful smile is important for your self-confidence and self-esteem, and can positively impact you, both in your social life and in a professional environment. There are many issues which may affect the aesthetics of your smile. During the course of life teeth can become chipped or broken, they may be misaligned or have gaps, they may be discoloured or stained, and dental issues may even result in tooth loss. These things can affect your smile which may negatively impact you in many ways. Speak to your dentist in St. Albans to discuss the cosmetic treatments available to help achieve your perfect smile.
What is Invisalign used for?
At UK Dental Specialists we can help achieve your perfect smile using Invisalign. If you have all your adult teeth and do not suffer with any dental issues, but are concerned with the aesthetics of your smile then speak to your dentist in St Albans to find out if Invisalign may be the treatment for you. If you suffer with crooked teeth, misalignment of your teeth or if you have gaps or overcrowding of your teeth and you do not want to have traditional metal braces, then speak to your dentist in St Albans about Invisalign. If you have issues such as an underbite, overbite or a crossbite then Invisalign may be able to help treat these issues too.
How does Invisalign work?
Following a consultation with your dentist in St. Albans to discuss your suitability for the treatment, X-rays and scans will be carried out of your mouth, and we can create a 3-dimensional simulation of your mouth to show you the different stages that will take place and the process that your teeth will go through to achieve the final result of your choice. Each treatment plan is individually tailored and a set of aligners will be created specifically for your teeth. These will then need to be worn in a specific order, for 2 weeks each and around 22 hours per day, until you move onto the next aligner. Step by step they will gradually move your teeth into their desired positions. A gradual change is advantageous because sudden drastic movement of your teeth can be detrimental, making them unstable, causing them to become mobile over time. The gradual movement also promotes longevity of the treatment itself.
Why choose Invisalign?
Invisalign has become a popular choice among adults who are unhappy with the aesthetics of their smile. They are transparent and therefore almost invisible so you do not have to feel self-conscious or worry about others noticing that they are there. They are easy to clean which makes them extremely convenient. To clean your aligners you simply take them out of your mouth, brush them with your toothbrush, clean them with water and put them back into your mouth. They do not cause any restrictions with your food and drink as you can take them out as necessary to enjoy all your favourite foods. They are comfortable, convenient and discreet, no one will have to know what you have planned until you are ready to show them. So speak to us at UK Dental Specialists today to find out if Invisalign is for you. Be happy and smile!
