Do you cover your mouth when you smile, laugh or talk?
Always wanted straight teeth but don’t want people to know?
Millions of adults are unhappy, self-conscious and embarrassed about their teeth and wish they had braces when they were younger. In the past orthodontic treatment involved unattractive metal wires and brackets. Now, more and more adults want straighter teeth but are too self-conscious to have metal braces. The good news is, you are never too old to straighten your teeth and there is an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign is a virtually invisible, affordable, comfortable and effective way of straightening your teeth to give you that smile you have always wanted. There are over 2 million people worldwide who have been treated with Invisalign.
Invisalign® is a revolutionary simple alternative to conventional braces where clear plastic aligners gradually straighten teeth and shift them into their ideal positions. These aligners are virtually invisible and more comfortable than traditional braces because they are removable smooth plastic without any abrasive metal bands or wires.
You will first need an Invisalign consult to determine your suitability for treatment. It is also essential to have an up to date comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums to ensure there is no dental disease present, as this could effect your Invisalign treatment and also compromise the final outcome.
When you are ready to begin, a series of photographs and accurate moulds are taken of your teeth. A 3D virtual tooth movement software will be designed to allow patients to see their teeth before and visualise how their smile should look at the end of treatment. This planning stage is very important and multiple movies may be made so that we show you the final result and make sure you are happy before you decide to commit to any treatment.
Once you and your dentist are both satisfied with the expected outcome, the aligners are designed using 3D computer imaging technology. Treatment involves a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are changed every two weeks. As you progress, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they are straightened to their final position.

Having straight teeth will also allow you to clean more effectively allowing for healthier teeth and gums and improved overall oral health.
If you are unhappy with the shape of your teeth then you may need to consider other cosmetic options such as veneers or crowns.
