‘Invisible braces’ are a form of orthodontic care which are considered to be far more discreet than traditional metal braces. Traditional metal braces use a combination of metal wires and brackets to apply pressure on patients’ teeth, these braces can produce effective and long lasting dental results for the more complex dental cases. Despite this however many of our patients may wish for a more subtle alternative, which is something we strive to accommodate at our dental clinic within Luton.
What are orthodontics?
Orthodontic dentistry is the treatment of crooked, misaligned, irregularly spaced, and front protruding teeth (referred to as underbites and overbites). At our dental clinic many of our invisible braces in Luton are considered as ‘cosmetic dentistry’ due to their virtually invisible appearance and the conditions they address.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental work which focuses on improving the physical appearance of the teeth, all of our braces aim (and produce) this result. Some other common examples of cosmetic dental work we provide at our dental clinic are white fillings, crowns, bridges, and tooth whitening.
Which dental treatment is right for me?
Navigating the modern world of orthodontic care can be tough for many of our patients, however our dental team is here to help you. There is now a wide array of orthodontic options, making it even harder for patients to know which choice is right for them, and their dental case, however our dental team will determine the best possible orthodontic option for you.
For more serious dental cases
Many of our patients may be suffering from more serious orthodontic conditions, if this is the case our dental healthcare professionals may refer you to a specialist orthodontist.
Do you only offer Invisalign?
No! Invisalign is a large brand provider of clear aligners within the United Kingdom, and one that we happen to offer our patients at our clinic, however we also offer alternative forms of discreet braces at our clinic in Luton. One other example of our invisible braces in Luton are Inman aligners.
What are Inman aligners?
Inman aligners are not completely invisible (unlike clear aligners) however they are deemed within the world of dentistry as a long term and fast solution to eliminating dental imperfections within the mouth.
How they work
Inman aligners contain just one thin metal wire, meaning they are dramatically less conspicuous than traditional metal braces (which use a combination of metal wires, and brackets). Inman aligners are considered an excellent solution for moderate to severe overcrowding of the teeth, in addition to overbites, and underbites.
Inman aligners may be suitable for patients who wish for rapid dental results, as they can produce straighter smiles in as little as six weeks! This could be perfect for patients who wish to improve their smile for a significant work or social event.
How much do Inman aligners cost?
The cost of our Inman aligners can vary greatly depending on the individual case, once our dental healthcare professionals have assessed your mouth with an initial consultation, we can give you an indication as to the exact cost of your Inman aligners.
