Have you always wanted to straighten your smile a bit, but have never approached a dentist about it?
But, if you are one of the many adults who regrets not undertaking orthodontic treatment as a child or adult, you may now believe that it is too late to do anything about it. You may have heard that wearing braces as an adult is not as effective as wearing them as a child or teenager and that the only type of brace you will be able to get will be the large, metal aligners.
Thanks to advances in modern orthodontics, many adults have found that they are actually able to straighten their teeth without needing extensive and uncomfortable metal braces. Thanks to the creation of clear and invisible braces, you can now realign your grin without drawing unwanted stares.
At Vogue Dental Care, we are proud to be able to offer our patients treatment with both clear and invisible braces. Using well-known brands like Invisalign in Luton, we can guarantee a fast, comfortable alternative to metal braces, without breaking the bank. Perfect!
But, before you rush to book your appointment with us, you will probably want to know a bit more about Invisalign in Luton. Here, we provide a brief guide to this treatment.
What is this brace and how does it work?
First things first, what is Invisalign in Luton?
Falling under the category of invisible aligners, this brace is made from a malleable plastic which is custom-moulded into a set of trays. As treatment progresses, you will change these trays in the order our team specifies to get the smile that you have always wanted, as each tray applies gentle pressure to your teeth.
It is custom-fitted, removable and easy to use around a busy lifestyle.
Who is suitable for it?
If you are over the age of 18 years, have good oral health and have a minor to moderate misalignment, then you are probably suitable for this brace.
If you are under the age of 18, you can ask our team about the teen based braces in this brand.
Can it treat more serious misalignments?
This is a tough question to answer; this brace can treat more complex dental issues, but this is entirely up to the discretion of our team. If you have a complex case that they are confident they can treat, then that’s great! If not, you may be more suited to clear or traditional braces.
How long does the average treatment take?
Similarly, this will depend on the severity of your misalignment and how disciplined you are at wearing the brace for 22 hours per day.
On average, treatment with this aligner takes about 6 months to complete.
Will it be expensive?
As is the way with adult aligners, the overall cost of this brace is high. But, with Vogue Dental Care, you may be suitable for one of our financing options, which will break down the cost into monthly instalments. Now that’s great!
