When you’re considering braces to straighten your teeth or close the gaps between them, there are several options available that are more discreet than traditional metal braces. One of the most discreet options is Invisalign, an almost invisible teeth straightening method that has revolutionised the field. It uses a series of clear, plastic aligners, rather than metal brackets and wires.
You may be wondering about the advantages of using Invisalign, compared with other braces. So let’s take a look at some of the benefits of using Invisalign.
It is removable
Invisalign clear aligners aren’t permanently fixed onto your teeth, which means you can take them out to eat a meal or brush your teeth and then pop them back in. No need to worry about spending ages fishing out food trapped between your teeth and your braces. Just eat and brush as you normally would.
It is almost invisible
Invisalign has a clear design, which makes it great for anyone who is worried about sporting a mouthful of metal as they get their teeth straightened. Professional and social occasions needn’t see you hiding your smile when you’re wearing Invisalign clear aligners.
It is comfortable
With no metal brackets or wires but simply smooth plastic, Invisalign offers greater comfort than traditional fixed braces.

Let’s face it, the only people who don’t mind too much about having metal braces on their teeth are kids. Even many teenagers would rather not have to wear clunky braces, let alone adults. Braces equals adolescence, which is not a good look for anyone who needs to present a professional image. Imagine a traffic warden trying to give you a ticket while wearing big metal braces; you’re hardly going to take them seriously are you?
So, if you need to be taken seriously, or just want to look your best, and you want to get your teeth straightened, then it’s time to check out invisible braces in Luton at Vogue Dental Care.
Some braces are more invisible than others. Some really can’t be seen, others are more discreet than invisible. Let’s take a look at the various devices here at Vogue Dental Care:
This is a great device for correcting the position of the front teeth. Two spring-loaded aligners go behind and in front of the teeth and use opposing forces to bring the teeth into their correct position. Depending on how your teeth start out, you may be done with treatment after as little as 6 weeks, certainly not more than 18 weeks.
Six Month Smiles
These discreet braces feature a modern twist on traditional brackets and wires. Designed for aligning the front 6-8 teeth, which only have one root rather than 3, they use gentle forces exerted by small clear ceramic brackets and fine wires that are tooth-coloured.
The average treatment time for these braces is only 6 months, hence the name.
No brackets, no wires, just smooth, clear plastic mouth guards that are so thin that once they are on over the teeth they cannot be seen. You wear a series of them, each with incrementally different pressure points inside to press on your teeth.
Newly positioned teeth can wander so it’s important to wear a retainer for some time after treatment is complete. You can choose from one bonded to the back of your teeth, or a removable retainer to wear at night.

Wondering whether you can bear to wear braces over your teeth for months on end and spoil your looks? Yes, the end result will be worth it, but what about how people will treat you in the meantime? Are braces going to interfere with your professional image? What if you could get your teeth straightened and still look great? What if no one even knew you were getting your teeth straightened?
You can get the best of both worlds when you choose Invisalign in Luton from Vogue Dental Care.
Invisalign in Luton means invisible alignment. There are no brackets fixed to your teeth with wires strung between them to ruin your smile. Instead you receive a series of ultra-thin, transparent plastic aligners that look like mouth guards. You put them over your teeth and the plastic is so thin that they disappear from view.
How Invisalign in Luton works
It all starts with a consultation, during which we take pinpoint accurate measurements of the inside of your mouth. These get transferred to a screen where we can build up a 3D image of your teeth and gums. We can show you how they look now and how they can be moved into alignment. People find this part of the treatment inspiring.
The measurements go off to the Invisalign factory in the US, where a series of aligners are made. Inside each one are computer-placed pressure points; each aligner is slightly different. You wear one after the other and they each press on your teeth to get them to shift into their correct positions.
You need to wear your aligners for at least 20 hours a day in order to keep on schedule with your treatment. But you take them out to eat and drink anything more than plain water. Give your teeth a good brush and pop the aligners back in.
The average treatment takes a year and everyone must wear a retainer for a period of time after treatment is complete to hold their teeth steady while they settle into their new positions.

Transforming your smile has never been more discreet with invisible braces in Luton. There has been incredible innovation in the type and range of braces that are now available that use clear plastic brackets and tooth-coloured wires or even, clean plastic aligners that are fully removable. Straightening teeth no longer needs to be lengthy, uncomfortable and obtrusive; they can be targeted, simple and almost invisible. One of our most popular teeth-straightening options is Invisalign.
Bespoke fit for the perfect reset
Firstly, you’ll need to be assessed by one of the team at Vogue Dental Care. We will look to see if invisalign is the best realignment option for you and the results you’d like to achieve. If it’s not, we will then look at our other options for invisible braces in Luton. Once we’ve agreed on the treatment plan, we will then take detailed images of your mouth. These are then sent to the laboratory and a series of aligners will be 3D printed to fit your teeth precisely.
Each aligner represents a small shift in the position of your teeth. It will take between 7-10 days for this subtle shift to occur, moving your teeth an incremental step towards their final destination. Over a typical period of 12-18 months, your teeth will be moulded into a new position, completing their transition to a new straight smile. The benefits of these clear aligners is choice. You can take them out for special occasions and because they fit so tightly to your teeth, it’s only close up that they will be at all visible.
Care of your aligners
Since they are completely removable you can take them out for eating and twice-daily brushing. It’s important to be fastidious in this routine as small bits of food debris could otherwise be held against your teeth, creating possible hot spots for tooth decay.
Long-term benefits of straighter teeth
Invisible braces in Luton have effectively replaced traditional braces with fast, efficient and unobtrusive teeth-straightening apparatus. It means that during treatment your look will never be compromised. Once your brace journey has ended, your teeth are now in a new position that not only looks good, it actually functions better.
Invisalign is an innovative teeth-straightening system that allows for more freedom in your daily life compared with metal braces. However, Invisalign patients should be careful enough to follow the rules set by their dentist if they want treatment to be effective.
At Vogue Dental, Invisalign in Luton is available for older teenagers and adults who are responsible enough to understand the specifics of the treatment and care for the aligners. However, some restrictions apply since not everyone is eligible for this treatment. If your teeth are heavily misaligned or you suffer from severe bite problems, then Invisalign in Luton is not the right treatment for you.
Brush and rinse your Invisalign aligners every day
One of the best ways to keep your aligners clean and prevent the build-up of plaque and bacteria is to brush and rinse them on a daily basis. However, you shouldn’t use a regular toothbrush. Instead, opt for a soft-bristled toothbrush or a special brush and use it gently to remove food remains and other debris from your aligners. Then rinse your aligners only with lukewarm water, since extremely cold or extremely hot water can destroy them. These steps should be ideally followed every time you remove your aligners for eating and before re-inserting them in your mouth.
Is it ok to soak my aligners when I don’t wear them?
While you don’t have to soak your aligners in special cleaner every day, it’s not a bad idea to do so every now and then. You can either buy a special cleaner designed for Invisalign or a regular denture cleaner.
It goes without saying that you should store your aligners safely when you aren’t wearing them. Moreover, you shouldn’t eat or drink anything but water when you are wearing Invisalign. The aligners are very sturdy, but they susceptible to damage if not treated properly. Using a case for your aligners every time you remove them to eat, drink or brush your teeth is the best way to keep them safe and germ-free.

Invisalign is sweeping the dental world in recent years and many patients are eager to straighten their teeth without wearing metal brackets and wires.
At Vogue Dental, as much as we’d love Invisalign in Luton to help everyone overcome their dental problems, it can’t fix every alignment issue. Just like most dental treatments, Invisalign in Luton is not for everyone.
The best way to determine if you can have Invisalign treatment is to schedule an appointment with your dentist. However, here are some ways to help you out before you reach out to us.
What type of misalignment would you like to fix with Invisalign?
The state of your teeth and the extent of your alignment issues are the most important factors to take into consideration when looking into Invisalign in Luton. Certain conditions such as twisted, undescended, heavily misaligned, or severely crooked teeth cannot be treated with Invisalign. Your dentist will recommend regular braces or another method but in some cases, you may be able to switch to Invisalign later in the treatment.
Am I too young for Invisalign?
Invisalign is great for older teenagers and adults, but is not ideal for children or teenagers whose teeth have not developed sufficiently. Invisalign aligners require precision and children’s teeth change day by day. Moreover, children and young teenagers don’t carry the same level of self-responsibility as adults. Invisalign aligners should be worn at least 20-22 hours per day and not following this rule can result in treatment complications and serious delays.
Metal braces may be more efficient
Efficiency may not be the primary concern of Invisalign patients, but it should be taken into consideration, especially when metal braces can give the same result in less time. If you are concerned about time and not aesthetics, it’s worth talking to your dentist about how long each treatment would take for your individual case.
Always consult your dentist
It’s important to point out that only an accredited dentist can determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign after examining your teeth and assessing your unique situation. Do not rely on the internet to see if you can have Invisalign or not – instead book a consultation appointment with our dental team at Vogue Dental.
When people think of braces, they usually think of unattractive metal wires and brackets. But what if you are no longer a teenager and you decide you would like to make some changes to your smile? Luckily, dentistry has advanced considerably, allowing patients of any age to correct their crooked teeth without having to rely on metal braces.
Nowadays, an increasing number of adults seeks teeth straightening treatment. Perhaps you didn’t wear braces as a child. Or maybe you weren’t quite diligent enough with wearing your retainer and your teeth have shifted over the years and you have become more self-conscious of your smile. Our experienced dentists at Vogue Dental Care can help you restore your confidence in your beautiful smile with invisible braces in Luton.
Invisalign consists of a series of clear, removable, custom-made aligners that straighten teeth without the use of metal or wires. Each aligner moves the teeth gradually into their right position.
Your dentist will use specialised software to demonstrate the complete treatment plan from the initial position of your teeth to their final, desired position. You will have to wear each set of aligners for at least one week, before proceeding to the next one.
Generally, Invisalign takes a bit longer than metal braces, but this depends on each individual case. A typical treatment with Invisalign will last about a year from start to finish. Commonly, you will go through 20-24 aligners in total during your treatment, but the treatment time and the number of aligners are customised for each patient.
Are invisible braces in Luton ideal?
Invisalign can address quite a few dental problems. Whether you need minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, you are probably a good candidate for Invisalign. The invisible braces are particularly ideal for treating moderately overcrowded or gapped teeth. Invisalign can also fix overbites, underbites and crossbites. However, Invisalign is not suitable for children, young adults or patients with very complex alignment cases.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is very gentle and not painful at all. And, since the aligners are removable, you can floss and brush your teeth normally. However, you must wear them at least 22 hours per day for effective treatment.
If you need teeth straightening but are afraid you are going to have to wear unsightly metal brackets and wires, relax, you now have the option of Invisalign in Luton.
This effective and discreet technique makes use of a series of aligners that help move your teeth into their correct position over time. At Vogue Dental Care, Invisalign in Luton can be customised to fit your individual dental needs. If you think that life is too short to worry about your teeth, don’t hesitate to book a consultation appointment with us.
Invisalign is a great treatment, but it’s not for everyone
If your friends have talked you into Invisalign, you should definitely explore this treatment. However, be aware that Invisalign in Luton is not for everyone. Our experienced dentists will know if you are a good candidate for this treatment after examining you, but there is no reason to undergo this examination if you are underage or your teeth are severely crooked. Sometimes, Invisalign is used after treatment with braces or other teeth straightening techniques, since our aim is to ensure that our patients’ teeth are safely straightened.
If your teeth are severely misaligned, then Invisalign is not for you
Invisalign in Luton is great for patients with mild or moderate dental problems. It is also great for bite complications such as underbites and overbites, provided they are not serious enough. However, if your teeth are severely crooked, twisted and/or rotated, Invisalign is not the right choice.
Age is an important factor when considering Invisalign in Luton
Invisalign is not only for adults, older teenagers can also take advantage of this treatment, provided that their jawbone has grown. Young teens and children are advised against Invisalign because it’s impossible to create accurate aligners for people whose teeth are constantly changing.
Are you willing to commit to your treatment?
Last but not least, Invisalign is not as easy a treatment to go through as it seems. While the aligners can be removed during the day for eating and brushing your teeth, you have to wear them for most of the day for the treatment to be effective. You’d be surprised to know how many people find this difficult.
If you are reaching the final days of your treatment with invisible braces in Luton, you will be looking forward to showing off your new smile. However, your braces are only step one of the teeth realignment process.
Step 2 is equally important: you will need to be diligent and committed to this stage of treatment. Whilst wearing your brace, your teeth are guided into a new position, loosening the connective tissue around your roots, so once the brace is removed, your teeth need a gentle hand to hold them in place whilst your jawbone regrows, securing them into position. A retainer achieves this for you, as your dentist at Vogue Dental Care will discuss with you. So, here is an overview and round-up of what retainers do and the types we can offer you.
What are retainers and why will I need one?
Once your invisible braces in Luton is removed, a retainer replaces your brace, holding your teeth in their new position as your jawbone grows and resettles around this new position. Your jawbone will then take over from your retainer and the process of realignment is permanently completed. This whole process can take up to a year and you will need to be patient, diligent and thorough in the wearing, cleaning and maintenance of your retainer.
The retainer itself comes in various styles, these are vacuum-formed, fixed and Hawley.
Fixed retainers are great for anyone who has a very busy life and therefore possibly more at risk of forgetting to replace their retainer. These are fixed to the back of your teeth rendering them as invisible as your invisible braces in Luton. They require careful cleaning to ensure food particles do not clog your retainer, increasing the risk of decay.
This retainer is clear and fits snugly over your teeth, and are discreet in appearance. You do not need to wear them for eating and drinking.
These consist of a plastic section that fits to the back of the teeth and a thin wire that then goes across the front, holding your teeth in place. It is fully removable but can be difficult to speak with initially.
