Most people would say that dentists ‘fix teeth’; what they actually can do is create confidence – confidence in a beautiful, natural smile.
There are three factors that influence the beauty of a smile, and therefore the confidence it gives, and they are:
- The colour of the teeth
- The positioning of the teeth and
- The shape of the teeth
If today, we concentrate on the positioning of the teeth.
This can be changed in a number of ways; the safest and most effective long-term change is with the use of orthodontic braces. But we want you to show off your smile, not your braces, and that’s why we particularly advise Invisalign®.
Invisalign® are clear aligners which are worn on the teeth and changed every two weeks. Each of these aligners moves the teeth by a small fraction and thus over a period of time, and multiple aligners, the re-positioning of the teeth is achieved. The teeth are then retained by using either a removable retainer or by using a very fine wire which is bonded to the back of the teeth, out of sight.
Remember, the aligners are clear, removable, comfortable and produced with the most modern, computer aided American technology.
With the Invisalign® technique, you can have the smile you always wanted.
The best way to proceed is to book a consultation with your dentist, and even if they don’t provide Invisalign®, they can refer you to a practitioner that does and also other cosmetic alternatives can be discussed.
