Straighter teeth – with no need for metal braces, brackets or wires: Invisalign has revolutionised teeth straightening for adults who might otherwise have been resigned to living with a crooked smile. With its removable system of custom-made clear aligners, which are barely visible in the mouth, Invisalign is as flexible as it is comfortable to wear. Because Invisalign addresses cosmetic concerns with the front “smiling” teeth, as opposed to more complex bite problems, it works fast – typically in months, not years. If you are interested in having Invisalign in Newbury, come and see us for an orthodontic consultation soon.
Faster, more comfortable: discover Damon braces
Damon braces do all the same work as traditional metal braces, so they’re ideal if your crooked smile isn’t purely a cosmetic issue with your front teeth alone. But the Damon system is far superior to “train tracks”, taking the whole face into account to produce a fuller, wider smile, better facial balance and an overall more youthful look. The self-ligating system means that no elastics are required, and advanced materials provide optimum comfort. Damon braces also significantly reduce the treatment time compared with traditional braces.
Guaranteed results with ceramic braces
Tooth-coloured ceramic braces offer a fixed, aesthetically discreet system that is ideal for all kinds of orthodontic problem, from crooked front teeth to bite issues. The great advantage of ceramic braces is that, unlike removable systems, the system works on your teeth 24/7, without the worry of being forgotten about or lost. Additionally, ceramic braces feature smaller, smoother brackets than traditional metal braces, so they are much more comfortable to wear.
Available at Westbrook House Dental Surgery, Invisalign’s near-invisible aligner system is ideal for anyone with a lifestyle that wouldn’t suit traditional metal braces. Invisalign is removable for when you need to eat or clean your teeth. It is a cosmetic treatment designed for the front ‘smiling’ teeth – so if there are deeper problems concerning bite and function, we may recommend an alternative treatment.
If your dentist agrees that you’re suitable for Invisalign, you’ll begin with a consultation during which you’ll be able to see a 3D time-lapse image of your teeth before, during and after treatment. You’ll need to sit for dental impressions, which will be sent to a lab so that your bespoke Invisalign retainers can be fabricated. Then you simply wear the retainers for the prescribed amount of time, returning to change them every few weeks until your treatment is complete.
Unlike other dentists, we can offer a range of Invisalign alternatives in Newbury, which will address your problem more appropriately – including Damon braces and ceramic braces. Come and see us for an orthodontic consultation so we can take the first step towards straightening your teeth.
