How could Invisalign improve my smile?

Invisalign Luton refers to a dental procedure that is designed to align the teeth and to give you that perfect smile. Having crooked or misaligned teeth can put a damper on your self-confidence and impact on your social lifestyle. But you will not need to be disheartened any longer. If you visit Vogue Dental Care, our experts will be able to give you a thorough consultation and determine whether Invisalign is the best treatment for you.

Invisalign Luton comprises a set of trays that are similar to retainers. They are essentially invisible and cannot be seen by anyone when you open your mouth to speak or eat, and they work by aligning the teeth and making them straight. This will then improve your smile, giving you a confidence boost and enhancing your overall appearance.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign Luton is a non-permanent method of aligning your teeth. The aligners do not get attached to your teeth, but can be inserted and removed from your mouth as and when you please, particularly when eating and drinking, to give yourself more comfort. Before you start your Invisalign treatment you will need to undergo a thorough assessment, so that your dentist can ensure that your teeth are ready for the procedure. It is essential that you maintain good oral hygiene leading up to your appointment to ensure that this does not cause an issue.

At your appointment your dentist will do a full examination and determine the length of your treatment. This will depend entirely on your teeth and the level of alignment required. Usually Invisalign treatments last between 12 and 18 months. Your dentist will take an imprint of your teeth and send this off for the Invisalign trays to be created. Once these are returned you will go to visit your dentist again where you will try on the trays to ensure that they are a comfortable fit for your teeth. The number of trays you will be provided with will depend on the length of your treatment. You will need to visit your dentist every six weeks to ensure that your Invisalign treatment is working and also to ensure that the trays are still in shape and not causing you any discomfort. Once you have completed your Invisalign treatment your dentist will provide you with retainers that will need to be worn each night for up to six months. This is to ensure that your aligned teeth do not start to move back into their original position and undo all the hard work and effort that you have put in over the duration of your treatment.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Firstly, the Invisalign trays are invisible. This helps to give adults a confidence boost and enables them to go about their daily lives as normal without having to worry about their appearance. Also they are removable which means that you can take them out before that very important meeting to make sure that they do not impair your speech. Invisalign is a fast-acting procedure – you will start to see the results within the first 6 months of your treatment. But it is important not to get complacent and be sure to carry on with the process for the duration of your treatment.
