Sometimes the thought of getting braces can be an unpleasant one, with traditional ´train track´ braces often being uncomfortable and conspicuous. Adults considering braces may want something less conspicuous that doesn´t get in the way of their normal lifestyle.
At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, invisible braces are an increasingly popular option with our adult patients, who want a teeth straightening treatment that better fits into their modern lifestyles.
What are invisible braces and what are their advantages?
There are a few types of invisible braces in Luton. One such treatment is Invisalign. This involves a series of plastic trays that are molded to your teeth. Each of these trays is shaped slightly differently to gradually move your teeth into place using gentle pressure. A huge advantage of this type of treatment is that the trays are removable, allowing you to eat what you want and better manage your dental hygiene.
Invisalign treatment is considered an almost invisible because the plastic trays are clear, making them virtually unnoticeable when you are wearing them. This treatment also requires less visits to our dental clinic as your treatment can be completely planned before the treatment even starts. However you will still come into to see us, so that we can check all is well and you are happy with how the treatment is progressing.
Another less conspicuous treatment is Six Month Smiles. This treatment consists of a fixed appliance that is entirely tooth-coloured, blending into the background of your teeth with ease. A benefit of this treatment is that you can achieve the desired results in as little as 6 months, as opposed to the years once expected when undergoing braces treatment.
The benefits of straighter teeth
It´s no mystery that having straighter teeth will give you a big confidence boost. Our smiles are one of the first things we notice when meeting a new person, so it pays on a cosmetic level to have straighter teeth. What you may not know is that having straighter teeth carries several other dental health benefits.
In short, straighter teeth are easier to keep clean, helping you to avoid gum disease and tooth decay. Straighter teeth are also less prone to uneven wear and chipping, keeping you smiling without hesitation.
