You’re never too old to get your teeth straightened

Much as we all aspire to having straight teeth that line up next to each other beautifully, many of us go through our lives without making that wish come true. For many of us, our teeth didn’t have the right degree of wonkiness to qualify for straightening on the NHS, which uses its limited funding for serious bite issues. So, we have gone through life thinking that, now that we’re grown up, the window for effective teeth straightening has closed.

Thankfully, nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is that it doesn’t matter how old you are, you can still get your teeth straightened. And, if that wasn’t great news in itself, you don’t even have to have clunky metal braces to do it. Instead, you can have invisible braces in Luton.

Invisible braces in Luton are an innovative step forward from traditional metal bracket and wire systems. This is a special kind of braces that are not permanently fixed to your teeth for months, maybe years, on end. There are no brackets and wires to create painful areas inside your mouth. And, not only will they not be the first thing people notice about you, people probably won’t notice them at all. No wonder Invisalign is one of the best known and most popular straightening systems in the world.

Here’s how Invisalign works:

We kick off with you coming to Vogue Dental Care for an initial consultation for invisible braces in Luton. If we think Invisalign will solve your misalignment issues, we next make digital scans of your teeth. Hundreds of tiny photos create a 3D computer model of how your teeth need to move them into a position that creates a beautiful smile for you. You can see the end result on the screen.

Next, we email all the information to the Invisalign laboratory, where they 3D print your custom-fit aligners, each incrementally different from the previous one. The pressure from each aligner moves your teeth a tiny step over the next 7-10 days. When the pressure wears off, you are ready for the next one. The aligners, made of rigid resin, are so transparent and so thin that they are as good as invisible.
