Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Transform your smile in as little as 6 months with fast & discrete teeth straightening.
We all think of teeth straightening and braces as something we go through during our teenage years – but you can’t put a time limit on achieving a beautiful and healthy smile! According to The British Orthodontic Society (BOS), the number of adults seeking orthodontic treatments to realign crooked or crowded teeth is rising by 5% every year.
Thanks to the advances in orthodontics over the past few years – you can now enjoy fast, discrete, and highly efficient teeth straightening techniques that can restore your smile in as little as six months.
The Benefits of Teeth Straightening
Teeth straightening – or orthodontics – is the field of dentistry focused on restoring crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth.
Orthodontic treatments can last between six months and a few years, and they can help you restore your general and oral health. Misaligned teeth won’t just affect your smile’s appearance. They also knock your confidence, lead to poor oral health, and decrease the functionalities of your mouth.
Teeth Straightening Options
Today, there is a wide range of orthodontic treatments to choose from, and your dentist at the Dental Health Centre will be able to guide you in the choice. The most common options include:
- Fixed Braces – fixed braces represent the traditional teeth alignment treatment. They can be made of metal or clear plastics, and they are usually applied to your teeth. They yield reliable and long-lasting results but can cause embarrassment.
- Clear Aligners – clear or near-invisible teeth aligners are removable moulds that need to be worn throughout the day. They are highly discrete and yield great results over time.
Invisalign®: The Game-Changing Alternative for Teeth Straightening
Invisalign® is the leading clear aligner brand. They provide removable, invisible braces that are discrete and straighten teeth quickly. Your Invisalign® provider will use advanced 3D computer-imaging technology to create several moulds of your teeth and design a series of custom-made, clear aligners. You will then wear each aligner for some time (usually around two weeks) until your teeth reach the final, desired position. The duration of this treatment can vary – but you are likely to start seeing results within six months.
