Getting a brace as an adult can be a rather daunting prospect. Many people put up with crooked teeth for their entire lives, rather than facing the horrors of being the only person in the office with “train tracks”. Thankfully, braces have come a long way in recent years, and there is now a variety of less embarrassing options available. At the Sparkle Dental Boutique near Hounslow, we offer the Invisalign® treatment – with these, nobody needs to know you’re wearing braces.
The Invisalign® braces don’t consist of metal wires, but are instead transparent aligners, much like a mouthguard made out of very thin, and clear, plastic. The aligners gently push your teeth into their optimum positions. Rather than the pain and discomfort of having metal braces periodically tightened, you are given a series of aligners, each one replaced every two weeks or so as your teeth move into position. Furthermore, these aligners can be removed at any time for cleaning and eating, so you can carry on living your life as normal.
Invisalign® is such a successful method because it uses 3D computer-imaging to design the aligners. A three dimensional model of your mouth is made and then adjusted to produce a model of how your teeth will look after the treatment. This technology shows the “before” and “after” picture, and also tells our dentists how to get from the former to the latter. The aligners are then designed to follow these steps, gradually correcting your teeth.
The Invisalign® braces are a quick, easy and subtle approach to orthodontics – an ideal choice for anybody considering braces in adulthood. Book an appointment now and you could have perfectly straight teeth in as little as three months, and certainly no longer than eighteen months. And with our flexible plans for payment, the cost can be spread out to suit your circumstances.
