Discipline and dental treatment – invisible braces in Luton

Getting your teeth straightened is a commitment on several different levels. You need to be willing to undergo dental treatment with Vogue Dental Care for a lengthy amount of time. If you are an adult, you may also need to find the financial resources to pay for your equipment. We can help you understand and tackle any aspect of treatment so that you are happy going ahead.

Once you decide to have your teeth realigned with us, a member of the team at Vogue Dental Care will go through all the aspects of treatment that you will experience at home. When it comes to invisible braces in Luton, this normally requires you to adhere to strict guidelines to experience the full benefits of your treatment. For example, when you get Invisalign aligners, you need to be disciplined enough to do the following:

  • Wear your aligner for most of the day and night – teeth straightening treatments require consistent pressure to be applied to the teeth for them to move. With fixed braces, this happens all the time. With removeable braces, you can decide when you have your aligner in place. This offers a great feeling of freedom but, if you do not wear it for more than 22 hours per day, it will not work within the timeframe of your treatment plan;
  • Change your aligner at regular intervals – depending on the type of treatment that you have, you need to change your aligner every 7-14 days. This ensures that your treatment progresses at the planned rate. Occasionally you may be required to wear one or two for longer, but we can advise you on this during your regular check-ups. Choose a method for tracking your treatment. You can mark it on a calendar, set reminders on your phone or there are even some apps you can download to assist;
  • Visit for check-ups – we schedule appointments with you at roughly six-week intervals. These should be brief and simply allow us to track your treatment and offer you any support that you may need.

Invisible braces in Luton from Vogue Dental Care are an excellent choice for teeth straightening if you can manage your treatment effectively.

Life upgrade

It has been proven that a healthy, straight smile can not only make you feel good on the outside but on the inside too. Eating healthier and brushing your teeth is more effective, but it definitely makes you feel more confident and proud.

Here at Vogue Dental Care, we want our patients’ to feel confident and proud with their smile. We enjoy taking our patients’ on the journey to attain that smile and happiness. We also realise that not all our patients’ want to advertise what they are doing. Luckily for those patient’s we offer a discreet, unobtrusive and comfortable option for getting this done. There’s no point accomplishing confidence but enduring embarrassment in the meantime.

Invisalign in Luton

In Luton, Invisalign is becoming increasingly popular due to its innovative and subtle design. These aligners are placed over your teeth and over the course of the treatment, gently reposition your teeth into the desired resting place.

At your first consultation we will take photos and X-rays of your teeth. These will be input into a computer where we will then be able to show you an image of how your teeth will be repositioned. Meaning before any aligners are made, we will be able to show you your new smile!

A series of aligners will be made, exclusively designed for your mouth and teeth. Each aligner will be required to be worn for at least 7-10 days before moving onto the next aligner. This is so there is a consistent pressure maintained in order to guide your teeth into position. The aligners are removable which makes it easier for eating, completing your dental hygiene routine and for special occasions. These are a few of the reasons Invisalign in Luton is so popular. However, even though they are removable, the aligners will need to be worn for at least 20-22 hours per day for the maximum efficiency.

One more major reason for Invisalign in Luton being so popular is they are pretty much invisible. Unless you are a trained dentist or you know your friend wears them, the chances of them being seen are slim to none. The reason being is they are made of completely clear plastic.

Straighter, healthier smiles

If you want to improve the alignment of your teeth in Luton, invisible braces are a comfortable and discreet solution. At Vogue Dental Care, we have a wealth of experience in providing customised, efficient braces that will straighten your teeth without causing social discomfort. Our contemporary realignment treatments can even enhance your oral health while they improve your aesthetic appeal.

User-friendly experience

Invisible braces in Luton are made of lightweight, transparent plastic. Precisely shaped to fit snugly over your teeth, they minimise disruption to your everyday routine. They don’t need you to have any brackets or wires attached to your teeth, so you can take them out when you need to eat a meal or clean your mouth.

The first step towards invisible braces in Luton is an in-depth conversation at our friendly dental practice. We’ll make sure this method is suitable for your particular needs, and take some detailed images of your teeth.

Then, a dental laboratory will produce for you a series of transparent plastic aligners. You’ll spend around 7-10 days wearing a set of these aligners, before exchanging it for the next one in the series. Because each aligner has a subtly different shape, your teeth will slowly move into better positions as the treatment progresses.

The benefits of invisible braces in Luton

Because you can take the aligners out of your mouth when it’s time to brush your teeth, the aligners help you to maintain a high standard of oral hygiene during your treatment. Their low visibility helps you to avoid the potential embarrassment associated with more traditional methods of tooth realignment.

The overall duration of your treatment could be 12-18 months or longer. It all depends on how much repositioning you want to achieve. When it’s time to remove your invisible braces in Luton, you’ll probably have to wear a retainer at night, to help the teeth get used to their new positions.

So it may take some time to enhance your dental alignment, but you’ll be enjoying the benefits for many years after the treatment is finished. With straighter teeth, you’ll have a more appealing smile, and a reduced risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

How much do you know about Invisalign in Luton?

When you check your smile in the mirror, is there an alignment issue that bugs you? Typically, the teeth have relatively fixed positions throughout our lives so, the chances are, if there is a problem, you have been aware of it for a long spell. You may have decided that now is the right time to do something about it and you want to begin exploring your options. This is something we can help you with at Vogue Dental Care. Our knowledgeable team are standing by to give you all the information you need to say yes to the process of creating your new smile.

When you visit Vogue Dental Care in Luton, Invisalign is one of the teeth straightening options we can discuss with you. If you have not heard of this method then there are a few things about it that may surprise you. Even if you have already come across it, you may not be aware of all the benefits.

These are just some of the qualities that people enjoy while using Invisalign in Luton:

  • See-through equipment – perhaps one of the greatest patient concerns, when it comes to teeth straightening, is that the equipment will compromise the way that they look for a long time during treatment. Invisalign aligners are clear and snug. This means that they sit close to the teeth, do not move when you talk and that you can see the teeth through the aligner. Combine all of these qualities and you get a teeth straightening method that is aesthetically low-impact without sacrificing functionality;
  • Short check-ups – when people have fixed braces, the dentist often has to tighten and adjust them during check-ups. With Invisalign aligners, you work your way through a series at home. You change your aligner for the next in the series every one or two weeks. Each aligner is a slightly different shape to the last and it is this progression that continually adjusts the pressure on your teeth. This means that check-ups with Vogue Dental Care are just that – we check that you are happy, that the treatment is working and that you have all the information you need to continue to care for your teeth during your realignment journey.

Feel you need braces?

You’re not alone. Thousands of people in the UK need or want braces. Everybody would like to have a dazzling smile, right? If you are thinking on getting braces, it’s definitely money well spent. Braces are not used purely for aesthetics. Crowded or crooked teeth not only look unattractive, they can also be pretty difficult to clean. Having a wonky bite can even endanger the longevity of your teeth due to uneven wear. Making the decision to go ahead with a course of braces needs thought and planning. There’s no need to struggle; trawling through options and details online can get confusing. Vogue Dental Care can help you to make the right choice for your alignment needs.

Invisalign. Alignment on your terms

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a special tooth aligning system that is virtually invisible. With Invisalign in Luton, patients receive a fully planned treatment schedule to move their teeth from their initial position to the desired end position. Treatment takes place with a series of clear aligners, custom-made to fit your teeth and gums. These discreet aligners work by moving your teeth little by little whilst drawing almost no attention to themselves. Many patients find that others cannot tell they are wearing braces at all. Imagine the confidence this can give. Invisalign braces are very popular for this reason alone, especially with adults. There is no need to wear unattractive metal braces to get the straight smile you’ve been hankering after.

Treatment with Invisalign in Luton will include brief and usually non-invasive appointments every few weeks. During these appointments you will receive a series of aligners that you can change every 7-10 days. The transition from one step of the series to the next is seamless. Of course, there will be some discomfort each step of the way but regular over-the-counter pain relief can help as your teeth settle into each new aligner. Your life will not need to go on hold during each transition.

How long can I expect to wear my aligners?

The treatment time depends on your specific needs and is determined when we set up your treatment. Daily wear should be around 22 hours. You should take the aligners out for eating and regular cleaning.

How can I get Invisalign treatment?

If you are thinking of tooth straightening treatment with Invisalign in Luton, call or email us at Vogue Dental Care to make an appointment for an initial consultation. We can help you to decide if this is the right treatment option and give you any information and advice you may need.

Can I expect the results to last?

Stick to the treatment plan, wear your aligners for the recommended wear time and complete your treatment with retainers and you can expect the results to last. Rest assured that you can enjoy your new smile for a long time to come.

Straighter teeth with invisible braces

If you are wondering what options are available to correct your tooth alignment issues with invisible braces in Luton, this post has a few ideas for you to mull over.

What are your options for invisible braces in Luton?

Invisalign

Invisalign is an almost invisible brace system. During treatment, you will be given a series of custom-made, clear aligners that form the pathway to your new smile. Each aligner is mapped using computerised technology and will gradually move your teeth to their new position. Your aligners are designed and made at the beginning of your treatment, meaning fewer visits for check-ups during your treatment. The number of aligners in your set will depend on your specific alignment problem. You remove these only to eat, drink, brush and floss.

Six Month Smiles/Cfast

Whilst these braces are not invisible, they are not far off it and certainly less conspicuous than traditional braces. This is an extremely effective brace system that can move your teeth quickly and gently to a more desirable position. The primary treatment focus is on correcting visible front teeth and not on correcting serious bite issues. Six months is an average treatment time. Depending on the case, the treatment time is usually between four and nine months. Your braces will consist of a thin metal wire attached to the front of your teeth with almost invisible, tooth-coloured brackets.

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is really efficient, very safe and great value. This style of brace allows your front teeth to be gently guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks. In many cases treatment can be completed in 6-18 weeks. Officially, the Inman system is not invisible, however, with this push and pull system, you only see one thin metal wire in front of your teeth, making this a great deal less conspicuous alternative to traditional braces.

Here at Vogue Dental Care we assess each individual case, making sure that you receive the best possible treatment plan for your needs. If you feel you can benefit from any of the treatments listed here, get in touch for more advice from our team. We can give you more information about Invisible Braces in Luton.

Four ways you need to be disciplined when using Invisalign

At Vogue Dental Care, we want to offer you as many options as possible when it comes to straightening your teeth. That’s why we carry some of the top braces brands like Six Month Smiles, Quick Straight Teeth and Invisalign. In Luton, at our clinic, we talk to you about the differences between these methods and assess which ones might be suitable for your needs.

Today, we are focusing on Invisalign. Many patients want to work with Invisalign in Luton because the system uses clear aligners to straighten teeth. These cover the teeth and are thin so they appear to be invisible to an onlooker. They are removable so the patient has control over when they wear their braces as long as they stick to certain guidelines.

When you have Invisalign in Luton with Vogue Dental Care, we talk to you about the challenges of this method as well. Perhaps the biggest is that a certain amount of discipline is required to work with Invisalign. We give you detailed advice on using your equipment and you need to follow this to the letter or you may not achieve the results you want within the treatment timeframe. This advice covers:

  • Hours per day – although you can take your Invisalign out whenever you want, you need to make sure that you wear your aligner for upwards of 22 hours per day for them to be effective. This is because the pressure on your teeth needs to be more or less consistent or your body will not react to it;
  • Cleaning – you take your aligner out to eat. Before you reinsert it, you need to clean your teeth thoroughly. In order to do this, you should get used to carrying your dental hygiene kit around with you. You also need to clean your aligner at least once a week by soaking it in a cleansing solution;
  • Check-ups – during your teeth straightening treatment, you need to visit Vogue Dental Care every six weeks or so to let us check on your progress. This also allows you to bring up any issues you might be experiencing. Sometimes we will tell you to wear one of your aligners for a longer period of time.

You’re never too old to get your teeth straightened

Much as we all aspire to having straight teeth that line up next to each other beautifully, many of us go through our lives without making that wish come true. For many of us, our teeth didn’t have the right degree of wonkiness to qualify for straightening on the NHS, which uses its limited funding for serious bite issues. So, we have gone through life thinking that, now that we’re grown up, the window for effective teeth straightening has closed.

Thankfully, nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is that it doesn’t matter how old you are, you can still get your teeth straightened. And, if that wasn’t great news in itself, you don’t even have to have clunky metal braces to do it. Instead, you can have invisible braces in Luton.

Invisible braces in Luton are an innovative step forward from traditional metal bracket and wire systems. This is a special kind of braces that are not permanently fixed to your teeth for months, maybe years, on end. There are no brackets and wires to create painful areas inside your mouth. And, not only will they not be the first thing people notice about you, people probably won’t notice them at all. No wonder Invisalign is one of the best known and most popular straightening systems in the world.

Here’s how Invisalign works:

We kick off with you coming to Vogue Dental Care for an initial consultation for invisible braces in Luton. If we think Invisalign will solve your misalignment issues, we next make digital scans of your teeth. Hundreds of tiny photos create a 3D computer model of how your teeth need to move them into a position that creates a beautiful smile for you. You can see the end result on the screen.

Next, we email all the information to the Invisalign laboratory, where they 3D print your custom-fit aligners, each incrementally different from the previous one. The pressure from each aligner moves your teeth a tiny step over the next 7-10 days. When the pressure wears off, you are ready for the next one. The aligners, made of rigid resin, are so transparent and so thin that they are as good as invisible.

Barely there braces

What most of our patients who have wonky teeth want is to be able to get them straightened without having to go through an ordeal of months and months of feeling self-conscious every time they open their mouths to smile or talk. Wearing braces is to be expected of teenagers, so we don’t pay them much attention, but seeing an adult with braces on is much more unusual and people can get rather fascinated by them and forget not to stare.

It may only be a few minutes of gazing for the beholder, but for the braces wearer, who may have to endure being stared at many times a day, it can be excruciatingly uncomfortable. That’s why, at Vogue Dental Care, we are accredited providers of Invisalign in Luton, a way of straightening teeth that avoids having to have brackets and wires fixed to them.

Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign in Luton uses ultra-thin (0.3mm), clear plastic mouth guard-style aligners, which snap on over your teeth and pretty much disappear from view. These are great if you are self-conscious, or if you have a public-facing job that means you will be face-to-face with lots of different people every day.

In Luton, Invisalign aligners work by having pressure points built in to the aligners. Once we have detailed measurements of your teeth and have worked out how they need to move to become aligned, a series of aligners are 3D printed for you. Each one, which you will wear for about 7-10 days, will nudge your teeth one tiny step closer to their correct position. It’s hard to say how many you will need, but, on average, treatment takes a year.

As well as being almost invisible, Invisalign has the advantage of being removable. You take your aligners out every time you want to eat, or to drink something other than plain water. This may sound like a hassle, but they pop out pretty easily with a removal tool, and you still have the freedom to eat whatever you want. You must wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day to stay on track with your treatment schedule.
