Invisible braces in Luton: a step-by-step guide

If you have been wondering whether invisible braces are the right treatment for you, then you may wish to know more about this treatment.

At Vogue Dental Care, we are certified providers of invisible braces in Luton. More specifically, we use Invisalign to help our patients regain their smile without changing their lifestyle. Treatment with invisible braces in Luton is comfortable and relaxing. Our experienced dentists will help you feel at ease during every stage of the treatment, providing as much information as possible on the steps involved.

First step – book your consultation

To ensure that you are a good candidate for invisible braces in Luton, you should undergo an Invisalign assessment. This will enable our dentists to determine if you can benefit from this treatment. Invisalign is a good match for many people – however, some limitations apply. Children and young teenagers are not eligible for this procedure. Moreover, patients with heavily crooked, twisted and misaligned teeth cannot benefit from Invisalign.

Second step – virtual treatment plan and Invisalign aligners

Once our dentists give you the green light to proceed with Invisalign, we will take digital impressions of your teeth, which we will send to the Invisalign laboratories. These impressions have a dual purpose – not only will they be used as a basis for the creation for your aligners, but also they will help your dentist to create a personalised treatment plan, where all the movements of your teeth will be detailed in advance.

The virtual treatment plan will help you see how your teeth will look at every stage of the treatment. Once your aligners are ready, your dentist will give them to you along with personalised instructions.

The number of Invisalign aligners that you will need to wear throughout your treatment depends on many factors including how complex your dental issue is. Usually, you will have one aligner for a week to 10 days.

Third step – enjoy the journey to your new smile

Invisalign aligners are very comfortable to wear and are very discreet since they are made of transparent plastic. Moreover, since they can be removed, you will be able to eat and clean your teeth as you normally would.

Another way to fight plaque

You know plaque is the mortal enemy of your teeth. You are super-disciplined with your oral health routine. You brush every morning and night for 2 minutes with a soft-bristled brush. You floss every day. And yet, still when you visit the hygienist, you have to have loads of it scraped from the crevices between your wonky teeth. You know that if you don’t do something, as you get older, you are more likely to get gum disease in those areas. So, what to do? Have you thought about getting Invisalign in Luton?

You’ve never heard of Invisalign? In Luton, it’s an increasingly popular way for people to get their teeth straightened. With so many wearers, you’d have thought you’d have noticed it by now. But you haven’t and there’s a good reason for that. Invisalign in Luton is so discreet that once it is in place over the teeth, it is virtually undetectable.

Here at Vogue Dental Care, we love seeing people’s reactions when we first put their Invisalign aligners in for them. These amazing straighteners are made from transparent plastic that is so thin and so well fitting that it hugs every contour of your teeth. Put them on over your teeth and they disappear from view. You have to get very up close and personal to spot that someone is wearing Invisalign aligners.

Invisalign is designed to work on mild to moderate misalignments. You get a series of aligners, each with a slightly different placement of bumps inside that, when one worn after the other in numerical order, create a sustained pressure on your teeth that gently moves them into alignment.

As well as being very hard to spot, the other big advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners come out. You take them out for eating and then clean your teeth and put them back in again. It’s a lot less hassle cleaning-wise than traditional bracket and wire braces. You must wear your aligners for at least 20 hours a day to keep up the pressure and stay on schedule with your treatment.

Clear solutions for wonky teeth

Even if your teeth are only slightly misaligned – maybe one or 2 are slightly twisted, or lean in or out, or are a tiny bit set back or forwards from the others – you can become so self-conscious about it. You may even feel the need to hold your hand over your mouth when you smile or laugh. Maybe you have perfected the art of smiling with your lips closed.

The reason for such self-consciousness is that human beings have evolved to be very aware of each other’s smiles. We use them to assess others for friendliness and health. In other words, for safety. We may not have to worry so much about disease or being attacked these days, but we still suss each other’s smiles out and we really do notice if other’s people’s teeth are damaged, discoloured or out of alignment and, if they are, we can tend to steer clear. We can’t help it.

But invisible braces in Luton from us at Vogue Dental Care can correct mild to moderate alignment issues without compromising your look. When you come in for an assessment with our braces dentists, we can develop a treatment plan that uses the right invisible braces in Luton for your alignment issues, your lifestyle and your budget.

Some braces are more invisible than others

Our range of invisible braces in Luton varies from the discreet to the almost completely unnoticeable. Some are removable and some fixed.

Fixed invisible braces in Luton

Six Month Smiles and Quick Straight Teeth use bracket and wire technology, but the brackets are made of clear ceramic and the fine wires are tooth-coloured. They work on the front 6-8 teeth, and are fixed in place, blending in with the teeth harmoniously.

Removable invisible braces in Luton

Invisalign clear aligners are ultra-thin clear plastic aligners that snap on over the teeth like mouth guards. They don’t interfere with speech and it takes a very hard stare to spot them once they are in place. They come out for eating and cleaning.

The Inman Aligner sandwiches the front teeth between 2 clear aligner bows and can straighten them in as little as 6 weeks.

Step into your life with Invisalign in Luton

If you want to get your teeth straightened at Vogue Dental Care, we want going ahead to be an easy decision for you to make. We encourage patients to have the work they want by utilising methods that integrate well into busy lifestyles. We understand the pressures of life and we don’t want your dental treatment to be one of them.

These days, dentists like us can choose to work with big brands that offer dental equipment. What this means for you is that you can benefit from our relationship with highly experienced providers of teeth straightening equipment like Invisalign. In Luton, at Vogue Dental Care, members of our team are trained to offer this innovative method for realigning your teeth. The reason we chose to work with Invisalign in Luton is that the treatment offers lots of benefits that work well for our patients.

Ease of use

Invisalign in Luton is easy to use. The aligners simply fit over the tops of your teeth. You do not need to have any equipment fixed to your smile and you can take your aligner out whenever you want to. If you hit the minimum number of hours that are required each day (about 22), then you have complete flexibility to remove your aligner as required.

No restrictions on food

Invisalign aligners need to be taken out to enjoy meals and snacks. This means that they do not interfere with the eating experience at all. You can still enjoy all your favourite food whether they are crunchy, sticky or mushy – all textures that can be tricky with traditional equipment.

Clear and thin

Each aligner is very thin. This means that it sits close to the teeth. As Invisalign equipment is see-through, this combine with the low profile to ensure that no one needs to know that you are having your teeth straightened. This is one of the primary benefits for many people as it means that they do not need to be concerned about how they will appear at their job or when out socialising.

If you have any concerns about teeth straightening, come and talk to us about Invisalign in Luton as it may be able to provide the solution.

Embrace straight teeth with invisible braces

Us Brits have a reputation for bad teeth, in the US, teeth straightening is de rigueur, with most adults entering the search for straight teeth. Beyoncé famously sported braces in her bid for smile perfection, so if it’s good enough for Beyoncé, should us Brits embrace it to? Although aesthetics may not be your only motivation for wanting straighter teeth, incorrect bite can cause jaw and muscle strain and headaches, it’s a motivational factor and one strong enough to get us past the fear of ‘metal mouth’.

It could then be a revelation to hear that whilst we’re worried about a mouth full of metal, it may not be necessary. In Luton, invisible braces offer the opportunity to correct alignment issues without compromising the way you look. At Vogue Dental Care, we have a great range of invisible options available to you.

In Luton, invisible braces are very much in vogue

After an initial consultation, we can look at the end result you desire and offer you a treatment including:

Invisalign

Invisalign is a great treatment for slow realignment of crooked teeth. Using clear, custom-made plastic teeth guards or trays that fit over your teeth, your teeth are guided over 12-18 months into a new position. These aligners are fully removeable and highly convenient. However, you may need corrective work that requires braces that fix in place.

Quick Straight Teeth

These clever braces use clear brackets and tooth coloured nickel-titanium wires that are invisible unless you’re standing in close proximity to someone. Usually worn for around six months, they can offer you great results without the look or feel of metal. However, if you’re wanting results quickly it might be worth investing in the Inman Aligner.

Inman Aligners

Although these are not strictly invisible, only a very thin metal wire that fits around the front of your teeth is visible. The advantage of these near-invisible aligners is they can offer results in as little as six weeks.

With these options it won’t be long before your showing our American cousins your perfect smile. In Luton, invisible braces are braces that can be embraced by everyone.

3D technology for wonky teeth

Invisalign is dentistry combined with great technology. This unique alternative to braces was developed using almost invisible thermoplastic trays that can alter the alignment of teeth without being fixed in place. Using computer technology, your treatment plan is plotted to gently realign your teeth over 12-18 months. If you want to try Invisalign in Luton, look no further than Vogue Dental Care.

What to expect from your first visit

It’s important that we fully assess your oral health and look at the end result you wish to achieve. Your dentist can then determine the best course of treatment for you and proceed to providing you with Invisalign in Luton if appropriate. If these won’t give you your desired result our highly skilled dentists can provide you with a range of alternatives.

It’s a go for Invisalign, so what happens next?

Using scanning equipment your mouth and gum line will be photographed. Using these images, your orthodontist will take your starting point and your desired end point and plot a treatment path to your final destination. The thermoplastic trays or ‘teeth guards’, will then be made for you using pin-point 3D printing accuracy. A series of these trays will be printed for you, each one designed to move your teeth a small incremental step towards smile perfection.

Every 10 days or so, you will need to change your aligner to the next in the series. You will occasionally need to return to us, so we can monitor your progress and make any changes to your plan if required.

So why choose Invisalign in Luton?

Due to their clever design the aligners are invisible unless you’re in close proximity to another person. Since they are also removable there is no compromise on what you eat, and drink and they allow you your normal oral health routine. In addition to this, because changing to the next aligner is how your treatment progresses, it reduces the number of visits you need to make to your dentist.

With all the advantages this incredible piece of oral technology offers, the question shouldn’t be ‘why Invisalign?’, but ‘why not Invisalign?’. If you would like to know more, please contact us for your initial consultation.

Now you see them, now you don’t

It sounds like a magic trick, a sleight of hand, but invisible braces in Luton are the real deal. At Vogue Dental Care we take great joy in showing our patients in need of teeth straightening just how discreet invisible braces are today. One of the leading brands that we provide is Invisalign. The name says is at all; it’s a portmanteau of invisible and alignment.

So how can you invisibly align your teeth? It involves some innovation, a good amount of discipline and the care and guidance of one of our dentists.

The innovation part

Invisalign invisible braces in Luton are only possible thanks to the innovation of 3D printing. They don’t involve metal brackets or wires but instead are a series of clear, plastic aligners, which are custom made to fit over your teeth. These aligners are printed in a lab in the USA and sent back to us here in Luton. Invisalign treatment involves you wearing each aligner for around 7-10 days, during which time specially designed pressure points within the aligners will push your teeth into straighter positions.

The discipline part

Your clear aligners will only stay clear if you take them out whenever you eat or drink anything other than plain water. You’ll need to give your teeth a clean before you pop your aligners back in after a meal and you’ll also need to rinse your aligners every day to remove any residue that may have built up on them. To make sure your treatment with these invisible braces in Luton runs to schedule you will need to make sure that you wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day.

The dentist part

When you come in to see us for invisible braces in Luton, we’ll thoroughly examine your teeth to check that Invisalign is a suitable treatment for you. In general, it works well for adults with mild-to-moderate misalignment issues. We’ll then take impressions of your teeth so that your aligners can be carefully designed using special computer-imaging software. We’ll track your progress throughout your treatment and make sure you are happy with how things are going.

Invisible braces: we’re not kidding

Invisible braces in Luton might sound like science fiction, but at Vogue Dental Care we know it to be very much science fact. Invisible braces aren’t strictly completely invisible, as that would make them rather hard to fit but they are so close to invisible that when you’re wearing them, onlookers won’t be able to spot them.

What are invisible braces?

One of the most popular brands of invisible braces in Luton, which we provide to our patients, is Invisalign. Its power of invisibility comes from the fact that it is not made of metal but clear plastic instead. These custom-made 3D printed aligners fit snugly over your teeth and push them into alignment.

Their clear design makes them ideal for adults who don’t want to let on that they are wearing braces but still crave a straighter set of teeth. Being removable is another bonus of Invisalign in Luton. You take them out to brush, floss and at mealtimes, so you don’t need to spend ages in the bathroom picking out food trapped between your teeth and your braces. This also means your dental health is more likely to stay in good shape during the course of your treatment.

Invisalign isn’t just a timesaver when it comes to time spent cleaning your teeth. You’ll also need fewer visits than with traditional fixed metal braces as we don’t need to adjust any wires to keep your treatment on track. That’s all taken care of with the careful design of pressure points within your aligners.

Is Invisalign right for you?

Invisalign is suitable for most adults with mild to moderate misalignments. Crooked, crowded, slightly rotated or gappy teeth can all be fixed with these clear aligners. More complex issues will however need alternative treatment, which we are more than happy to discuss with you so you can find the right kind of braces for your dental health and your lifestyle.

Teeth straightening minus the embarrassment

When was the last time you blushed or cringed with embarrassment? Can you imagine feeling that way every day? That is often the worry when adults think of getting their teeth straightened, but it doesn’t have to be that way anymore with Invisalign in Luton. This innovative treatment takes the embarrassment out of teeth straightening, so you can get a more confident smile even if you missed the chance to get your teeth aligned as a child.

At Vogue Dental Care, we’ve seen many patients pleasantly surprised by just how discreet Invisalign in Luton is. How can any dental appliance that has to force your teeth into alignment possibly be so inconspicuous? Let us explain.

No more metal

When people think of braces, they, more often than not picture fixed metal appliances, with brackets, wires and elastic bands that pull the teeth into alignment. Invisalign in Luton doesn’t involve any of that. Instead a series of clear, plastic aligners are used to gently push the teeth into straighter positions.

This is made possible thanks to 3D printing technology. Detailed images or impressions of your teeth are sent to an Invisalign lab in the USA. Here custom-made aligners are designed with pressure points crafted into the inner surfaces of the aligners. These are printed out using a 3D printer and sent back to us here in Luton. Invisalign treatment can then begin.

Your Invisalign journey

We’ll give you a series of clear aligners, each of which you’ll need to wear for around 7-10 days. Then it’s onto the next set of aligners, which will push your teeth a step further along their journey towards their final positions. You’ll come in to see us periodically so we can check everything is going well and you are happy with your treatment.

The aligners are removable, so you’ll take them out to eat and brush. This makes dental hygiene as easy as it was before your treatment and also ensures your aligners don’t get stained by food and drinks.

You’ll need to make sure you wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day to ensure you get the predicted results on time.

A smile a day

In general, life seems to be about achieving goals, getting what you want and being happy about it. A smile comes into play at every stage. Showing that you’re happy at work is useful as it leaves a good impression of you and it can make others feel happy too. Feeling satisfied with your achievements in your work or personal life cannot be complete without a smile, so what if the look and feel of your teeth is getting you down? At Vogue Dental Care, we understand that crooked or crowded teeth can be a source of worry for you. This is one of the many reasons why we provide invisible braces in Luton.

We believe that it is important for you to feel comfortable and excited by the prospect of straighter and healthier teeth. You no longer have to imagine teeth straightening treatments as heavy metal appliances. Nowadays, innovative advances in dentistry means that teeth straightening treatments can in fact be discreet and almost invisible. This is often a desired among adults, who might wish to be discreet about treatment when they’re in a professional environment. In Luton, invisible braces give patients the flexibility and comfort they need during their journey towards a healthier smile.
