Invisalign is often coined as the alternative to metal braces. Indeed, Invisalign is very discreet and can straighten your teeth as well as solve a multitude of oral problems (i.e. crossbites, underbites, overbites), but works very differently from conventional braces. Moreover, unlike metal braces that look unattractive and may cause irritation, Invisalign aligners are very discreet and are customised to fit snugly over your teeth.
At Vogue Dental, we use Invisalign invisible braces in Luton to treat mild to moderate dental problems within 2 years or less. Patients who opt for invisible braces in Luton can smile confidently while wearing their aligners, since they are practically invisible when they are inside their mouth.
Behind the mechanism of Invisalign
Invisalign is not a retainer. This innovative treatment consists of a series of plastic, customised, see-through aligners, which are created by a specialised lab after your dentist sends them impressions of your mouth. These impressions are taken with a special 3D software that allows precision and effectiveness. Each aligner moves your teeth up to a certain point, so the next one in the series has to build upon what the last one did, and so on. That’s why you should follow your dentist’s guidelines and recommended wearing times.
Invisalign aligners fit precisely over your teeth and can be taken out since they are not glued to the teeth like metal braces. Your dentist will recommend wearing them for 20-22 hours every day but you can take them out if you feel like eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. You can have your aligners on while drinking water.
In some cases, invisible braces in Luton could straighten your teeth quicker than standard braces; however, this is not the rule. Treatment time will depend upon many factors such as the type of the misalignment you want to fix and the number of teeth you need to correct.
Exclusive benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign aligners not only work to improve your smile, but are also practical and easy to use. Not only are they designed to be virtually unnoticeable on the teeth, but they can also be removed during various activities for added comfort. Need we say more?
In the modern world of teeth straightening, there’s no need to compromise on your professional image while you undergo treatment. If you have mild to moderate alignment issues, there’s a very good chance that you can get your smile straightened with a treatment that is so discreet, it might as well be invisible.
Invisalign in Luton uses a different method to straighten teeth. Instead of the usual bracket and wire technology that pulls teeth into their correct positions, Invisalign uses mouth guard-style aligners that push teeth into alignment.
There’s no fussing around with adhesives on your teeth or sore patches from sharp parts. With Invisalign in Luton, you get a series of aligners made out of smooth, clear plastic that are so thin that once they are in place over your teeth, no one can really see them.
How to get Invisalign in Luton
The first thing to do is book yourself a consultation with us at Vogue Dental Care. Our Invisalign dentist will make a thorough examination of your teeth.
They will use a scanner to take detailed images of your teeth, which we build up into a 3D image on a nearby screen. We can view your teeth from all angles and even show you how they will be moved to line up properly.
If you go ahead with treatment, you will receive a series of aligners. You wear one after the other. Each one will feel as though it doesn’t quite fit. This is due to the carefully placed pressure points that press on your teeth until they shift out of the way. It takes 7-10 days for this to happen, and then, when your aligner feels like it fits, you take it out and put the next one in.
The aligners are removable. You take them out to eat and drink, and also to brush your teeth. Aside from these times, it’s important to wear your aligners no matter what else is going on. Teeth need sustained pressure to move and if you keep leaving your aligners out, the process is interrupted and your overall treatment time will slip out of schedule.

If you are planning to get your teeth straightened, you might imagine that you will have to put your social life, your work life, your dating life on hold while you suffer from brace face. Brace face is what happens when you wear metal train track braces and everyone stares at you whenever you open your mouth.
You can go about straightening with metal braces if you want to, but if you’d rather have a life and have braces, it’s worth checking out invisible braces in Luton.
Here at Vogue Dental Care, we offer a great range of invisible braces in Luton. There’s bound to be a design that will suit your alignment issues, your budget and your lifestyle.
Fixed invisible braces in Luton
These are a discreet take on traditional bracket and wire braces. You still have brackets on your teeth, but they are way smaller and made of clear ceramic. The teeth are moved by the wire between the brackets, but it’s much finer and it’s also tooth-coloured. Your braces, while not entirely invisible, can’t be seen from a distance and, up close, look more like tooth jewellery than a dental device. These braces use gentle forces that work well on the front 6-8 teeth, which are more easily moved because they only have one root.
Removable invisible braces in Luton
No brackets, no wires. Nothing that resembles braces, in fact. Instead, you have very thin plastic that is moulded to cover your teeth like a second layer of enamel, hugging your gumline so that these clear aligners cannot be seen at all once they are in place. Clear aligners really are invisible braces in Luton. They move your teeth by pressing on them with carefully placed bumps and ridges. The progression of movement is achieved by wearing a series of aligners, each one for 7-10 days. Take them out to eat and to clean your teeth.
Removable single devices
These are great for the front teeth, using spring-loaded bands or wires on a plate that goes over the teeth. Treatment can be completed in as little as 6 weeks.

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.
