Did you know there is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear metal braces?
Here at Family Dental Westcliff we can help you have the smile you have always wanted using invisible braces.’
A favourable option for adults who don't feel comfortable wearing unsightly 'train track' braces for months on end. The technology behind invisible orthodontics is highly advanced and often gives patients a much shorter treatment time, depending on their individual cases.
It is important to remember that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. Properly aligned teeth and less gaps reduce areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay.
A beautiful smile is generally defined by the following:
- Straightness and symmetry of teeth
- Tooth proportion and smile width
- Spacing of teeth
- Shape, colour and fullness of lips
- Gum health and gum line
- Colour of teeth
Unlike traditional fixed braces, Invisalign clear aligners are removable and nearly invisible.
We offer a range of payment plans to help make paying for your Invisalign treatment manageable for you.
Invisalign in Westcliff on Sea is ideal for patients with moderate alignment issues or bite problems such as overbites, underbites and crossbites. At Abbey Dental Practice, you can choose from different types of Invisalign, which are designed to target a range of dental problems. For instance, Invisalign Lite is ideal for less complex alignment issues, whereas Invisalign Teen comes with special features for teenagers.
We would be happy to discuss your options and help you decide the best treatment based on your specific dental needs and lifestyle.
Invisalign is a different kind of braces system than you may be familiar with. Instead of metal brackets and wires pulling the teeth into position, it uses thin, clear mouth guards to gently nudge the teeth into place over time. Each pair of aligners is custom-made and specially designed to move your teeth.
As the aligners are clear, Invisalign is almost invisible: only a professional (or perhaps your mum) would notice you are wearing them. They are taken out for eating and cleaning, so are easy to maintain and to fit into your lifestyle.
Give us a call today and find out how you can benefit from these wonders of modern dental technology.
How does Invisalign work?
We can show patients their "digital smile" so they are able to see what their teeth would look like after orthodontic treatment even before we have started treatment, no more sticky impression material, the 3D scanner records the exact contours of the teeth while the patient can sit back and relax.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Each patient is unique and for this reason, treatment times are different. In general, most people enjoy a straighter smile within 12-18 months on average with Invisalign in Westcliff.
Will Invisalign fit my lifestyle?
With Invisalign, there is no need to change a thing in your daily routine. The aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed whether you wish to eat or brush your teeth through the day. Moreover, Invisalign appointments are not lengthy and can be coordinated with your schedule.
