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.
