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.
