5 Brilliant Benefits to Invisible Braces

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

InvisalignIn days gone by, people used to think of braces as cumbersome metal devices, which were painful and unsightly. Today, orthodontic treatment looks entirely different, and a growing number of people are taking advantage of incredible invisible braces. If you’re thinking of having braces, here are five amazing benefits you could enjoy:

  1. Invisibility: of course, the most important benefit of invisible braces is the fact that nobody can see them. Most of us are conscious about our appearance, and the idea of wearing braces doesn’t appeal to many. With invisible braces, you can get amazing results without any worry about what you look like.
  2. Confidence: confidence is very important. For many of us, the way we look can impact our confidence levels. Wearing braces can make people more self-conscious. Invisible braces enable you to go through treatment without feeling anxious about what others think or how you look now that you’ve started treatment.
  3. Simplicity: invisible braces enable you to get on with life as normal, even though you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Most invisible braces are removable, which gives you flexibility, and more control over your treatment.
  4. Positive impressions: many people have put off having braces in the past because of the stigma attached to wearing visible braces. With invisible braces, you don’t have to worry about people making judgments based on your braces. If you’ve got a high-powered job, it’s not going to affect your career prospects. If you’re trying to fit in at school, your braces aren’t going to make you the butt of jokes and jibes. Nobody will know that you’ve had braces until your smile looks perfect, and you’re ready to show it off to the world.
  5. Results: invisible braces don’t just boost your confidence during treatment. They also provide you with a stunning smile that will make you look and feel a million dollars. Most of us consider our smile our most important feature, so it’s worth investing in invisible braces.

Invisible Braces, Showstopping Results!

header_image4If you dream of a showstopping smile, Invisalign could be the perfect treatment for you! This invisible brace system produces stunning results with the magical bonus that nobody will even know that you’ve been having treatment. If you’ve been searching for a brace that affords you the opportunity to remain incognito during treatment and provides a beautiful smile at the end of the process, look no further!

About Invisalign

Invisalign is an aligner system that uses a sequence of custom-made plastic aligners to re-position and align the teeth. Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic and slide onto your teeth. Once they are sat in place, it is virtually impossible for other people to detect them.

Invisalign works differently to traditional braces and uses multiple appliances, rather than a single orthodontic device. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and the sequence follows until treatment is complete.

As well as offering virtual invisibility, Invisalign also offers patients:

  • comfort: the aligners generate gentle forces and there are no metal parts
  • convenience: Invisalign aligners are removable, so they fit into your normal day to day life very easily. You won’t have to adapt the way you eat, the foods you buy or the way you clean your teeth
  • improved oral health: braces can be notoriously hard to clean, but with Invisalign, there is no added risk of decay as you remove your aligners to brush your teeth
  • confidence: many people worry about having braces because they think they look unattractive or affect the way other people view them. With Invisalign, you can go through the process without any worries at all about what you look like or how you come across to other people

If you think Invisalign sounds like the perfect match for you, why not call us today and book a consultation? Our friendly dentists will explain the ins and outs of orthodontic treatment, go through the pros and cons of Invisalign treatment and carry out some tests to check whether or not you are a good candidate for this system. If Invisalign is not a good match, we will be happy to explore other, more suitable, options.

Invisalign – a Discreet Brace System

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

header_image4Invisalign braces are removable, clear aligners that are used as an invisible alternative to braces made of metal. They are suitable for all people of all ages, and work to straighten and correct teeth in the same way as metal braces.

Invisalign is the perfect solution for those who feel their smile needs adjusting or improving. The technique used for Invisalign is also used to successfully treat overly spaced or overcrowded teeth. Invisalign braces can also help with crossbites, overbites and underbites.

Benefits of Invisalign braces:

  • They can be removed, allowing you to floss, eat and drink normally, as well as take them out for a special occasion
  • You will have an improved smile even before the treatment is complete
  • The braces are comfortable and will not irritate your cheeks or gums due to their smooth edges
  • They are totally clear and practically invisible, so no-one needs to know that you are undergoing treatment

Treatment is made up of 4 stages:

  • The first appointment at City Dental Leeds will involve discussion of problems with your smile, in terms of both aesthetics and function. You will also be asked what results you are hoping for. Once it has been established that Invisalign is right for you, your treatment can be planned.
  • Photos and impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to Invisalign so that they can create 3D images of your treatment. This will allow the dentist to see what your teeth will look like at all stages of the process, as well as allowing you to get a glimpse of what the final result will be.
  • Aligners to be worn at each stage in the treatment will be created and customised using state-of-the-art technology. Usually between 20 and 30 aligners for each arch will be required during treatment, although this will vary for each patient.
  • Aligners must be worn at all times, apart from while you are eating and drinking. This is necessary for treatment to be completed in the time frame determined at the start. You will need to attend check-ups so that your progress can be monitored and your aligners swapped. You will be able to observe your teeth gradually shifting into the correct position throughout the treatment, leaving you with a smile you can be proud of.

No Need to Hide Your Smile During Invisalign Treatment

Monday, February 16th, 2015

header_image4If you’re thinking about having braces, you may assume that you’ll need to hide your smile for months to come. But with Invisalign, you can show off those pearly whites without any worries about how you look or what your friends or colleagues will think. Invisalign braces are virtually invisible, so you can feel confident throughout your treatment.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern, innovative orthodontic treatment, which employs a series of custom-made aligners to straighten out orthodontic issues. Invisalign aligners look similar to gum shields, but they are much thinner and lighter and they are completely clear. When they are in place over the teeth, it is very hard to notice them.

The Invisalign treatment process differs to normal orthodontic treatment because more than one appliance is used. In fact, each patient is given a series of aligners, all of which are bespoke and the aligners are swapped every two weeks. Each one is slightly different and treatment is planned in advance so you can see exactly how your teeth will move and what your smile will look like at the end.

The many benefits of Invisalign

Understandably, many people are worried about having braces because of the way they look, the treatment duration and the social stigma attached to them. However, with Invisalign there’s no need to even think about these potential stresses. Invisalign aligners are clear, so nobody will be able to tell that you’re wearing a brace, you can take them out when you’re out for dinner or drinks and you can go to meetings or dates without anyone being drawn to a highly visible brace.

As Invisalign aligners are removable, they give you more flexibility and reduce the impact of treatment on your normal daily routine. You don’t have to worry about getting bits of food lodged in your brace and you can brush your teeth in the normal way. As teeth cleaning is straightforward, there is also a lower risk of oral health problems associated with wearing a brace.

How long will treatment take?

Treatment times vary depending on how much tooth movement is required and the complexity of the orthodontic prescription. Most patients wear their aligners for around 12 months.

Invisibility for your Mouth in Central Leeds

Sunday, August 26th, 2012

There are a lot of factors involved in keeping a healthy balance to your mouth and one of those is the way your jaws come together.

If they close perfectly, then there is less stress placed upon the tiny joints of the jaws where they meet. But teeth don’t follow the rule book and for some people in central Leeds, teeth can develop awkwardly and grow crooked which means they have to be straightened by the use of a brace or aligner. Now this can throw up a lot of fears in some people.

Traditionally, braces have not been renowned for their beauty and wearing them can be an ordeal- that was until Invisalign came along. It comes in the guise of a gum-shield, but throws off the shackles of stigma that comes with traditional braces. It is made from a clear plastic, which from a vanity angle is marvellous because it is almost invisible when fitted and as the treatment progresses and you get fitted with different ones as your teeth move, you will find that your teeth move quickly, up to three times faster than other braces.

It can also be removed whenever it takes your fancy so from a hygiene point of view, this is another plus. It is more expensive than other treatments but the rewards of this treatment and the way it works far outweighs any costs incurred. Anyway, you need the treatment so why not make it a pleasurable one.
