3D technology for wonky teeth

Invisalign is dentistry combined with great technology. This unique alternative to braces was developed using almost invisible thermoplastic trays that can alter the alignment of teeth without being fixed in place. Using computer technology, your treatment plan is plotted to gently realign your teeth over 12-18 months. If you want to try Invisalign in Luton, look no further than Vogue Dental Care.

What to expect from your first visit

It’s important that we fully assess your oral health and look at the end result you wish to achieve. Your dentist can then determine the best course of treatment for you and proceed to providing you with Invisalign in Luton if appropriate. If these won’t give you your desired result our highly skilled dentists can provide you with a range of alternatives.

It’s a go for Invisalign, so what happens next?

Using scanning equipment your mouth and gum line will be photographed. Using these images, your orthodontist will take your starting point and your desired end point and plot a treatment path to your final destination. The thermoplastic trays or ‘teeth guards’, will then be made for you using pin-point 3D printing accuracy. A series of these trays will be printed for you, each one designed to move your teeth a small incremental step towards smile perfection.

Every 10 days or so, you will need to change your aligner to the next in the series. You will occasionally need to return to us, so we can monitor your progress and make any changes to your plan if required.

So why choose Invisalign in Luton?

Due to their clever design the aligners are invisible unless you’re in close proximity to another person. Since they are also removable there is no compromise on what you eat, and drink and they allow you your normal oral health routine. In addition to this, because changing to the next aligner is how your treatment progresses, it reduces the number of visits you need to make to your dentist.

With all the advantages this incredible piece of oral technology offers, the question shouldn’t be ‘why Invisalign?’, but ‘why not Invisalign?’. If you would like to know more, please contact us for your initial consultation.

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.

Invisible braces: we’re not kidding

Invisible braces in Luton might sound like science fiction, but at Vogue Dental Care we know it to be very much science fact. Invisible braces aren’t strictly completely invisible, as that would make them rather hard to fit but they are so close to invisible that when you’re wearing them, onlookers won’t be able to spot them.

What are invisible braces?

One of the most popular brands of invisible braces in Luton, which we provide to our patients, is Invisalign. Its power of invisibility comes from the fact that it is not made of metal but clear plastic instead. These custom-made 3D printed aligners fit snugly over your teeth and push them into alignment.

Their clear design makes them ideal for adults who don’t want to let on that they are wearing braces but still crave a straighter set of teeth. Being removable is another bonus of Invisalign in Luton. You take them out to brush, floss and at mealtimes, so you don’t need to spend ages in the bathroom picking out food trapped between your teeth and your braces. This also means your dental health is more likely to stay in good shape during the course of your treatment.

Invisalign isn’t just a timesaver when it comes to time spent cleaning your teeth. You’ll also need fewer visits than with traditional fixed metal braces as we don’t need to adjust any wires to keep your treatment on track. That’s all taken care of with the careful design of pressure points within your aligners.

Is Invisalign right for you?

Invisalign is suitable for most adults with mild to moderate misalignments. Crooked, crowded, slightly rotated or gappy teeth can all be fixed with these clear aligners. More complex issues will however need alternative treatment, which we are more than happy to discuss with you so you can find the right kind of braces for your dental health and your lifestyle.

Teeth straightening minus the embarrassment

When was the last time you blushed or cringed with embarrassment? Can you imagine feeling that way every day? That is often the worry when adults think of getting their teeth straightened, but it doesn’t have to be that way anymore with Invisalign in Luton. This innovative treatment takes the embarrassment out of teeth straightening, so you can get a more confident smile even if you missed the chance to get your teeth aligned as a child.

At Vogue Dental Care, we’ve seen many patients pleasantly surprised by just how discreet Invisalign in Luton is. How can any dental appliance that has to force your teeth into alignment possibly be so inconspicuous? Let us explain.

No more metal

When people think of braces, they, more often than not picture fixed metal appliances, with brackets, wires and elastic bands that pull the teeth into alignment. Invisalign in Luton doesn’t involve any of that. Instead a series of clear, plastic aligners are used to gently push the teeth into straighter positions.

This is made possible thanks to 3D printing technology. Detailed images or impressions of your teeth are sent to an Invisalign lab in the USA. Here custom-made aligners are designed with pressure points crafted into the inner surfaces of the aligners. These are printed out using a 3D printer and sent back to us here in Luton. Invisalign treatment can then begin.

Your Invisalign journey

We’ll give you a series of clear aligners, each of which you’ll need to wear for around 7-10 days. Then it’s onto the next set of aligners, which will push your teeth a step further along their journey towards their final positions. You’ll come in to see us periodically so we can check everything is going well and you are happy with your treatment.

The aligners are removable, so you’ll take them out to eat and brush. This makes dental hygiene as easy as it was before your treatment and also ensures your aligners don’t get stained by food and drinks.

You’ll need to make sure you wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day to ensure you get the predicted results on time.

A smile a day

In general, life seems to be about achieving goals, getting what you want and being happy about it. A smile comes into play at every stage. Showing that you’re happy at work is useful as it leaves a good impression of you and it can make others feel happy too. Feeling satisfied with your achievements in your work or personal life cannot be complete without a smile, so what if the look and feel of your teeth is getting you down? At Vogue Dental Care, we understand that crooked or crowded teeth can be a source of worry for you. This is one of the many reasons why we provide invisible braces in Luton.

We believe that it is important for you to feel comfortable and excited by the prospect of straighter and healthier teeth. You no longer have to imagine teeth straightening treatments as heavy metal appliances. Nowadays, innovative advances in dentistry means that teeth straightening treatments can in fact be discreet and almost invisible. This is often a desired among adults, who might wish to be discreet about treatment when they’re in a professional environment. In Luton, invisible braces give patients the flexibility and comfort they need during their journey towards a healthier smile.

Our invisible braces in Luton

At Vogue Dental Care, you can arrange an appointment with us to discuss the various types of teeth straightening treatments we have to offer. One of our caring and experienced dentists will talk you through the treatments in detail, giving you the opportunity to consider the treatment that would best fit around your lifestyle.

One of the most discreet teeth straightening treatments we provide at our practice is Six Month Smiles. As it suggests, this treatment aims to straighten your teeth in as little as 6 months. That means less time spent on treating your teeth and more time showing off your straighter teeth. Even during treatment, you don’t have to feel conscious of smiling because the wires and brackets are clear or tooth-coloured. You can smile and laugh in the company of friends and family, without the burden of unsightly metal braces.

An alternative to metal braces

‘Brace face’, ‘metal mouth’, ‘tinsel teeth’, you’ve probably heard them all. Nobody wants to spend months or years of their life wearing unsightly metal braces. Over time, people have recognised this and subsequently come up with ways for you to straighten your teeth without having to feel self-conscious about your ‘tin grin’.

If you are looking to subtly straighten your teeth, you could look to solutions such as clear braces or Invisalign in Luton. Here at Vogue Dental Care, we have embraced these exciting alternatives. We believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise straightening your teeth with feeling self-conscious during treatment.

What is Invisalign?

When it comes to clear braces, the clue is in the name. They function much like traditional braces, but use clear or tooth-coloured materials in place of metal.

Invisalign consists of a series of clear aligners that are custom-made to fit snuggly around your teeth. These are to be worn for 7-10 days before being replaced by the next in the series of aligners. Over time, they gently push the teeth into their correct positions via carefully planned movements. Treatment time varies from person to person, but on average takes about 12 months.

Going for Invisalign in Luton differs from traditional braces as instead of adjusting the original braces, new aligners are swapped in to replace the old ones. The aligners are also removable, which means that you can take them out for eating, brushing and flossing. In fact, to retain their clear appearance, the aligners should be taken out whenever eating or drinking anything other than water.

In order for treatment to be timely and effective, the aligners should be worn for at least 20 hours a day.

Who can get Invisalign in Luton?

Invisalign is not suited to children, as their teeth are still developing. It is best suited to adult teeth. It may also not fix severe cases of misalignment and is better suited to mild to moderate issues of crowding and spacing of the teeth.

Don’t worry if you’re not sure where you stand on the scale of misaligned teeth. During your consultation, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and help find the best solution for you.

Straighten your teeth with confidence

Everyone knows that the end goal of braces is to improve the function of the teeth, as well as boost your self-esteem. When you have finished treatment, you can smile with confidence and feel more like yourself in social situations, without having to worry about the appearance of your teeth. In fact, you probably won’t be able to stop flashing everyone your toothy grin.

But what about smiling during treatment? Here at Vogue Dental Care, we believe that you shouldn’t have to worry about the appearance of unsightly metal braces, on top of feeling insecure about your misaligned teeth. That’s why we offer invisible braces in Luton to get your teeth back on track.

What do invisible braces do?

Invisible braces in Luton serve the same purpose as traditional braces, that is, to gently nudge the teeth into their correct position. They can be used to sort out dental problems such as:

  • crossbites
  • overbites
  • underbites
  • gapped teeth
  • Crowding

As well as improving the look of your smile, getting braces will ensure that you maintain good oral health. If left untreated misaligned teeth increase the risk of gum disease and tooth loss, as they are harder to clean than straight teeth. Overbites and underbites can also cause the jaw to ache.

Straight teeth reduce the risk of bits of food getting stuck in nooks and crannies, and ensure that you clean your teeth more effectively. They also allow you to chew and so digest your food more easily.

Types of treatment

If you are considering going for invisible braces in Luton, there are a number of options out there. When you come for your consultation with us we will examine your mouth and find the best solution for you based on your individual needs.

Clear braces

If you are looking to get braces as an adult, Six Month Smiles or Cfast may be the option for you. They subtly straighten the teeth using tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets.

Inman Aligner

This is used to straighten the front teeth using two spring-loaded bows. They produce results in just 6-16 weeks.

Invisalign

Invisalign consists of clear aligners, custom-made to fit your teeth and gently nudge them into position.

Three problems you can avoid when it comes to teeth straightening

If it’s worth doing, it’s worth putting yourself out for, right? Sure, but that doesn’t mean that you have to endure every issue that is usually associated with teeth straightening. Brands like Invisalign in Luton have developed to make realignment treatment accessible for more people because it avoids the normal pitfalls associated with it.

At Vogue Dental Care, we know that the more issues we can help you overcome, the more likely you are to have your teeth straightening treatment when you need it rather than procrastinating and living with a smile you aren’t 100% happy with.

Obtrusive equipment

Perhaps one of the primary concerns for adults who are having their teeth straightened is the problem of the appearance of dental equipment. No one wants to have to endure months of feeling self-conscious about their smile. Fortunately, with Invisalign in Luton, this is no longer an issue. In fact, it will be hard for most people to tell when you are wearing one of the aligners that is used for this method.

Lengthy appointments

Fitting a dental treatment into an already busy life is enough of a challenge. When you need to have multiple appointments to keep things running smoothly, it’s even trickier. With Invisalign in Luton, you need to have regular check-ups like you do with all teeth-straightening treatments. However, these are usually short and only to monitor your progress.

Even your initial fitting appointment is short with Invisalign. This is because this system involves removeable aligners, so they do not need to be fixed to your teeth. Your ‘fitting’ appointment simply involves us giving you your custom-made aligners to take home along with instructions for their use.

Food restrictions

Say goodbye to the idea that a teeth-straightening treatment always restricts your food choices. This only applies in cases where you are actually wearing your equipment while you eat. With Invisalign, you take out your aligner to munch on anything that takes your fancy and then you clean your teeth before popping your equipment back in. this means you can choose sticky foods, crunchy bites and fibrous fruits without any concerns about how you are going to get the remnants out of your braces afterwards.

Moving past barriers to treatment with Vogue Dental Care

When you are thinking of having a long-term treatment like teeth straightening, you want to be sure you are going to have the experience that you want as well as the results. If you feel like you are going to have to endure your treatment, this might stop you going for it. Even if you do decide to go ahead, it’s better to feel relaxed and happy with your choices as it gives a generally positive slant to your treatment.

At Vogue Dental Care, we think that innovation in dentistry can support an enhanced experience for our patients. The way that teeth straightening equipment is designed these days, for example, has been much more focused on speed, comfort and aesthetics than it has been in the past. That’s why you can now get invisible braces in Luton at our practice.

One of the most common psychological obstacles that people encounter when they think about teeth straightening is due to concerns about length of treatment, discomfort or the way that they will look. Working with a brand of invisible braces in Luton, like Six Month Smiles or Cfast, can help to alleviate any worries about these problems.

  • Faster – these methods focus on getting your smile looking great as fast as possible. While you may still experience some clinical benefits, this isn’t the focus of treatment, so you can get to the result you want much faster;
  • Comfortable – there is always some sensation associated with teeth straightening. However, you shouldn’t experience any more discomfort with invisible braces in Luton than with traditional methods. The method applies similar forces;
  • Low-impact – perhaps one of the best things about invisible braces in Luton is the way that they look. To get them to blend in with the teeth, the equipment is either clear or tooth-coloured. The brackets are also smaller than they would have been with old-style braces.

These are just some of the more common barriers to treatment that melt away when you visit Vogue Dental Care. Whatever your concerns are, you can bring them with you to clinic and we will talk through them with you. In our experience, most issues can be solved when we know about them.

The secret to better teeth straightening with Invisalign in Luton

Can you keep a secret? So can the team at Vogue Dental Care. If you want a dental treatment that will straighten your teeth in a way that no one knows about but you and us, that’s possible with Invisalign in Luton.

In fact, we think your will be so impressed by Invisalign in Luton that you will choose to tell quite a few people how well it’s working for you. You’ll probably want to see the surprised look on their face when you tell them you are wearing teeth straightening equipment. The point is that you will be able to choose to tell whoever you want. It won’t be obvious to everyone you meet. That feeling of security about your look during your treatment is invaluable when in comes to having a positive experience.

How can Invisalign be so discreet?

The team at Invisalign has developed a method of teeth straightening that utilises aligners rather than braces. These are made of clear thermoplastic, which is strong but thin. The inside of each aligner is full of pressure points that push against the teeth. It is strong enough to do this while also being light and low profile against the teeth. This means you can clearly see all your teeth through your equipment and it’s hard to distinguish the aligner itself.

The fit of an Invisalign aligner needs to be snug. This works in your favour as well when it comes to discretion because it means that it does not slip or move about when you are talking, laughing or smiling. In fact, you could kiss someone wearing an aligner and they might not know about it unless you tell them.

Just for you

Each set of aligners is tailor-made for the individual who is going to wear them. This helps with the precision fit and allows them to make the right moves to align someone’s smile. As you change each aligner every one to two weeks, you should not experience any discolouration that affects their invisibility. You take your aligner out to consume anything other than water in order to maintain clarity. It is also advised that you do not smoke while wearing Invisalign.
