Getting your smile straightened has never been easier. Even as an adult, you can still correct your wonky teeth, in a discreet and simple way.
In Luton, Invisalign is a very popular treatment among adult patients. Four million people worldwide have benefited from this advanced dental technology. We know that having a quick, easy and hidden braces system is what our adult patients want, and for many, Invisalign in Luton is the solution.
How does it work?
Invisalign is a series of clear resin braces, much like a thin mouth guard. Our dentists at Vogue Dental Care use digital imaging technology to take a scan of your teeth and gums then create a 3D treatment plan that shows how the teeth will gradually move over the course of a few months, until they reached their desired end point.
We send away this plan to the Invisalign technicians in the US who then manufacturer all the aligners you will need for your course of treatment. You wear each set of braces for two weeks, then swap to the next set in the plan.
What are the benefits?
If you want to maintain an active social and professional life in Luton, Invisalign is a great solution:
- the braces are clear so they can’t be seen, unless someone is really close up and examining your teeth;
- they are removable, you can even take them out for an hour or two for a special occasion;
- you can also remove them to eat and to clean – so no bits of food getting stuck in wire braces to contend with;
- they are more comfortable than other kinds of braces. They are custom-made to fit your teeth and gums and there are no brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth;
- they work more quickly than traditional braces (which can take up to two years);
- they are cheaper because they require fewer check-ups throughout the process.
How long does it take?
It takes 9-18 months for a complete course of treatment, depending on the level of misalignment. Invisalign in Luton isn’t suitable for everyone so do come in for a consultation to find out if it could work for you.
There are many different kinds of braces. You are probably familiar with the ‘train track’ ones, worn mostly by teenagers. As an adult, you may feel it’s too late to get your teeth straightened, or perhaps you just don’t want to go down the road of having such visible wires and brackets stuck to your teeth for two years.
Luckily, there are discreet solutions available in Luton. Invisible braces come in different forms.
These are wire and bracket braces that are fixed to the back of the teeth, and so can’t been seen when you smile. They are custom-made and take about six weeks to produce. The dentist then cements them to your teeth for the course of the treatment, which can take up two years.
You can have traditional braces made in clear or tooth-coloured materials to blend in with the teeth. Not entirely invisible, but certainly more discreet than metal wires. One brand that we use at Vogue Dental Care in Luton is Six Month Smiles. Not only discreet but, as the name suggests, also quick, the average treatment time being six months. This treatment focuses on the ‘social six’ front teeth.
Metal wire aligner
Again, though not totally invisible, all that can be seen is one thin metal wire across the front of the teeth. This works on the front teeth and is fast acting – it shows results in 6-18 weeks. It’s also removable and only has to be worn for 16-20 hours a day. Our dentists use the Inman aligner.
If you really don’t want others to know you’re wearing invisible braces in Luton, these clear, removable aligners are the real deal. Clear aligners have no brackets or wires and are custom-made so they are comfortable and easy to maintain. You can take them out to eat, clean and even for the odd special occasion. We use Invisalign, a leading brand that has been used by 4 million patients worldwide.

Come into the surgery and find out how invisible braces in Luton can give your smile a boost.
Crowded or crooked teeth often look unappealing and can be difficult to clean. A misaligned bite can impair your dental function and put strain on your jaw. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, Invisalign provides a solution to problems like these. Using sets of aligners made from transparent plastic, custom-moulded for comfort and efficiency, Invisalign will improve your dental positioning without attracting too much unwanted attention.
What happens when you choose Invisalign in Luton?
You’ll begin your treatment with a detailed consultation at the comfortable Vogue Dental Care practice. If Invisalign is the right way to achieve your desired improvements, we’ll take some detailed dental images, and work out a precise treatment plan.
A dental laboratory will then produce a series of aligners based on your specific measurements. They are carefully shaped to fit your teeth, and you’ll wear one of them for around two weeks, before exchanging it for the next in the series. The slightly different shape of each subsequent aligner will gently pressure your teeth into improved positions over the treatment’s duration.
In typical cases, it can take between 12-18 months to complete Invisalign in Luton. The exact length will depend on the complexity of your condition, and your dentist will let you know how long things will take before you commit to the treatment. After you’ve removed the final set of aligners, you’ll need to wear a retainer at night. This will help your teeth become securely fixed in their new positions.
For adults in Luton, Invisalign is popular because the transparent plastic keeps it discreet. Compared to traditional wire-and-bracket braces, attached to the front of the teeth, Invisalign is barely noticeable. The aligners fit your teeth snugly, and you can take them out to brush your teeth and at mealtimes.
Once treatment is done, you’ll have straighter teeth that function more efficiently and are easier to keep clean. Your risk of gum disease and tooth decay will be lower, because there’ll be fewer awkward spaces in the mouth where bacteria and food particles can hide. Having Invisalign in Luton will transform your dental experience.
If you are made self-conscious by your wonky teeth and want to get them straightened, then you are probably looking for a way to do so without becoming even more self-conscious. Braces, it seems, are just as bad as actually having wonky teeth, and the thought of attracting all that unwanted attention puts a lot of people off getting treatment.
But what if we told you that teeth straightening does not have to involve months of excruciating embarrassment when you come to Vogue Dental Care, because we can offer you invisible braces in Luton?
If the idea of invisible braces in Luton seems unlikely, we’re glad to tell you that we really are not exaggerating. Dental researchers have put a lot of effort into creating braces that are discreet and we offer one brand that is so hard to spot that many celebrities use it.
These really are invisible braces in Luton. They disappear completely when in placed on your teeth. This is because they don’t rely on brackets and wires to pull your teeth into position, but rather use ultra-thin transparent plastic aligners that are created to hug your teeth so neatly that they can’t be seen when you put them on. Think mouth guards, but 0.3 millimetres thick, and you’ll have an idea of what we mean. If Invisalign is the right treatment for your particular issues, you will receive a series of these aligners, moving from one to the next every couple of weeks. The pressure from each one not quite fitting perfectly is what moves your teeth. A simple, but brilliant idea that has revolutionised teeth straightening since it came on the market in 2000.
Six Month Smiles
These are bracket and wire braces, but so delicate, with clear ceramic brackets and fine tooth-coloured wire, that they grace your teeth rather than dominating them. Designed to move only your front six teeth, they take about six months to do their work.
The Inman Aligner
Not invisible, but only one wire across your front teeth to move them, and quickly, sometimes in as little as six weeks.
When you decide to have braces to straighten your teeth, you may think you are committing yourself to months of inconvenience, discomfort and self-consciousness. None of that sounds very appealing, especially if you are an adult who needs to look smart and professional for their job.
None of this needs to be the case, either, if you choose Invisalign in Luton with us at Vogue Dental Care. There is much about this braces treatment that is convenient, comfy and hassle-free. Let’s take a look at the advantages of getting your teeth straightened with Invisalign in Luton.
No need to be self-conscious
One of the most appealing aspects to Invisalign is that these mouth guard-style aligners are made of ultra-thin, transparent plastic. Once you snap them on over your teeth, they become unnoticeable. No one will see them, and they won’t interfere with your speech. So, unless you want to tell people about Invisalign in Luton, you get to keep your teeth straightening treatment strictly private. You may want to take them out for very special occasions, but there really is no need.
No need to change your diet
One of the problems with fixed braces – brackets cemented onto the teeth with wire strung between them – is that they can make eating a bit tricky. Food can get stuck and you can find yourself spending ages cleaning them up. Also, if you choose clear brackets, they can become discoloured by tea, coffee, and wine. None of this happens with Invisalign because you remove them whenever you need to eat, or drink anything other than water. You do need to clean your teeth after every meal, but you don’t need to avoid certain foods for months on end.
All you have to do is make sure you wear your aligners for at least 20 hours a day to stay on schedule with your treatment.
No need for endless appointments
Because the aligners come in a series that adjust the teeth, you don’t need to waste time coming back to us for adjustments. We need to see you, but not as often as if you were using fixed braces.
Did you know that you are never too old to get your teeth straightened? Yes, it’s true. Even though we tend to think of teeth straightening as something you need to get done in your early teens, the truth is the teeth can be moved at any age, it’s just a question of applying sustained pressure. So, if you are an adult who wants their teeth straightened, why not come to us at Vogue Dental Care and find out about our range of invisible braces in Luton?
A discreet road to straighter teeth
Braces have come a long way in the last decade or two, and there are invisible braces in Luton that have been designed specifically with adults in mind. Developers realised a while ago that there are plenty of people out there with teeth that need straightening, even if their jaws bite together perfectly well. These are the people who didn’t qualify for NHS braces treatment as young teenagers.
If you are reading this, you are probably one of those people. You’ve grown up with teeth that are kind of wonky. That can be embarrassing, and prevent you from smiling as much as you need to in order for your body to release its natural feel-good chemicals, such as serotonin. Yes, wonky teeth really can bring you down. And yet, they are so easy to fix these days, and with our range of invisible braces in Luton, you won’t draw unwelcome attention to your teeth while you are undergoing straightening treatment.
These braces are designed to move just the teeth, which is often much quicker than trying to realign the jaws as well. It’s the jaws that often require the heavy-duty metal braces, moving only the teeth, particularly the front ones, can be much quicker. If it’s only your very front teeth, it can sometimes be done in as little as six weeks, with a device called the Inman Aligner. The other front teeth, known as the social six because they are the ones that are mostly visible when we converse, can be moved in a matter of months rather than years, and with much gentler forces too.
Straightening your teeth will improve the way they function, make them easier to clean, and make them look more appealing. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, Invisalign can provide these enhancements in a discreet and efficient process, guiding your teeth into healthier positions using transparent plastic aligners that won’t spoil your appearance. And the aligners can be removed at mealtimes and when you brush your teeth, so you can maintain good oral hygiene while treatment is ongoing.
Customised and gradual
The first stage of Invisalign in Luton is a detailed consultation at our practice. Our friendly dental professionals will make a detailed assessment of your teeth, taking high-quality images and forming a precisely-customised treatment plan. After this, a series of transparent plastic aligners is produced, tailored to your needs. You’ll wear each one of these aligners for around two weeks, before moving on to the next one. The total duration of your treatment will depend on the complexity of your realignment requirements, but typical cases last for around 12-18 months. Afterwards, you may need to wear a retainer at night, to help the teeth get used to their new positions.
Moving the teeth takes time, but the oral health benefits are significant and long-lasting. Many people opt for Invisalign in Luton because of its minimal impact on their lifestyle. The clear plastic aligners attract much less attention than traditional braces that are fixed to the front of the teeth. The aligners are customised for your comfort, and the computer-aided planning means that the duration of the treatment is as short as it can be. And once treatment is complete, you’ll enjoy the benefits of neater teeth for many years. The risk of jaw strain will be reduced, because the teeth are in more effective positions. And because they’re easier to clean, you’ll be at less risk of bad breath, plaque build-ups, and gum disease. Your improved smile and optimised oral health could even bring a boost to your overall self-confidence. Contact the Vogue Dental Care team today, to find out more about what this contemporary realignment treatment can do for you.
At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, invisible braces offer a way of realigning the teeth without attracting too much unwanted attention.
Because they’re made of clear plastic, they’re much less eye-catching than the traditional wire-and-bracket appliances. And because they’re not affixed to the surface of the teeth, they can be removed during mealtimes and oral hygiene routines, helping you both to enjoy your food and to keep your mouth healthy during treatment. For these reasons and more, invisible braces are a popular choice for adults.
Customised for efficiency
The first step towards getting invisible braces in Luton will be a consultation at our friendly dental practice. Our team will learn about your dental history, and how you’d like your teeth to look after realignment. After taking high-quality images of your mouth, a detailed treatment plan will be produced, while your set of realignment appliances is formed from transparent plastic in a laboratory.
You’ll wear each one of these appliances for two weeks, before moving on to the next one. Because the shape of each one is slightly different, your teeth will be gently pressured into new positions over the duration of the treatment. Their snug fit helps you stay comfortable, while the clear plastic keeps them discreet, so you can keep working and socialising with confidence as your teeth are gradually realigned.
Your dentist will let you know how long treatment will last before it begins. In Luton, invisible braces can take 12 months or longer to achieve their effects, but the exact length will depend on the complexity of your needs.
Straighter teeth can function more efficiently, reducing the risk of jaw strain. They’re also easier to keep clean, because there are fewer awkward areas in the mouth in which food particles and bacteria can gather, so the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, or bad breath will be reduced. And although your braces will have remained invisible, the improvement in your smile will be plain to see. This aesthetic enhancement can give you an overall confidence boost. And with proper oral care, you can enjoy all of these benefits for many years to come.
If you are an adult who has considered teeth straightening, you have probably heard of Invisalign. This innovative treatment has been around for quite a few years and it is among the top choices for those who want straighter teeth without wearing unsightly metal brackets and wires.
At Vogue Dental Care, we appreciate that not everyone enjoys the idea of wearing metal braces in order to straighten their teeth. With Invisalign in Luton, you can straighten your teeth without anybody knowing. This treatment has many benefits over traditional braces and discreet appearance is only one of them.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign aligns your teeth with the use of clear, removable, plastic aligners, which are made with the help of 3D technology. To achieve straighter teeth, you will wear each aligner for two or three weeks (depending on your dentist’s instructions) before moving to the next one in the series. You can expect to wear the removable trays for approximately 20-22 hours a day, except while eating or brushing and flossing your teeth. In this time, your teeth will move gradually into their correct position. Treatment time is different for each patient, however, most people take 9-12 months to have their teeth straightened with Invisalign.
Benefits of Invisalign aligners
The most obvious benefit of Invisalign is invisibility. Since the aligners are made of transparent plastic, they are difficult to spot. Moreover, Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic with no metal in them, therefore, they cannot cut and scar the inside of your mouth or tongue. Because they are removable, personal oral hygiene is not compromised. All the same, you can enjoy your favourite foods. Finally, Invisalign is not painful at all and requires fewer adjustments by the dentist compared to regular braces.
Am I a good candidate?
If you wish to have Invisalign in Luton you are advised to call us at Vogue Dental Care and book an appointment. Generally, Invisalign is ideal for teenagers and adults with moderately crooked teeth. However, if you are typically forgetful or if you have an extremely complex bite problem or misalignment issue, our dentists may speak to you about more appropriate solutions, so you can still achieve a straighter, beautiful smile.
Are you stuck with the embarrassment of crooked teeth because you dread the idea of wearing metal braces? It’s not uncommon for adults to feel this way, especially if you feel the need to cover your smile during conversations. It seems unnecessary and intrusive, and some would rather compromise their oral health for the sake of escaping unsightly traditional tracks.
However, you don’t have to avoid teeth straightening treatment. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, invisible braces are provided as a favourable alternative.
Invisible braces for visible smiles
Invisible braces in Luton are recommended to patients who would feel uncomfortable with metal tracks, as comfort certainly means confidence during treatment.
If you’re looking for both a clearer and quicker alternative to the traditional, then Six Months Smiles could be an ideal solution for crooked teeth. Just as you might have guessed, Six Month Smiles is a clear braces system intended to straighten your teeth in just six months. They function in the same way traditional braces do, only with the sole purpose of straightening teeth and improving their appearance. Using clear brackets, this treatment is discreet and affordable due to the short time it takes.
Invisalign is another choice of invisible braces in Luton. This treatment involves a series of clear aligner designed for the straightening of your teeth, which you move onto every 1-2 weeks. By doing so, these aligners shift your teeth to their desired positions over time and guide you to a confident, everlasting grin. This is a flexible alternative, as you can choose to remove them when you eat, drink or brush your teeth. Invisalign requires fewer visits to the surgery than ordinary braces, so you can go about your lifestyle without much interruption.
Whatever your choice of invisible braces in Luton, it is most important to remember that all our staff at Vogue Dental Care are experienced in caring for our patients’ best interests. From the beginning of your treatment to the end, and even beyond, we will make sure you feel comfortable and confident to smile during your teeth straightening journey.
