We understand that there is a lot of pressure put on the concept of the perfect smile. From first impressions, to making people feel comfortable, to just generally feeling happy and confident when out and about. It all comes down to your smile and how you feel wearing it. We also understand that not everybody is born with the straightest of teeth and, unfortunately, no matter how good your dental hygiene regime is, it is unlikely that any misalignment can be fixed from brushing and flossing. That’s where our Invisalign Leicester comes in.

Here at Smile Care Dental Clinic, you’re important to us. Everything you have to say and the way you feel is at the centre of our clinic. You influence the decisions we make and the treatments we use, right down to the colour of our walls. As one of our patients, you’re a part of our ever-growing family and that makes you the priority. From the moment you enter our practise, we want it to feel like a place you can call home.

In this article, we’ll talk about Invisalign Leicester and what is included in this treatment, as well as the long list of benefits.

What is the intention?

If you’ve had crooked or misaligned teeth all your life, you might be ready for a change. Whether this is due to an overbite, underbite or another form of misalignment, Invisalign Leicester should be right up at the top of your list. The intention here is to offer an invisible alternative to your standard braces that are also completely removable. These are your teeth, straightened on your time.

I’m an adult, can I use them?

We understand that for some adults, getting braces to straighten your teeth might not sound exactly appealing. You might be embarrassed that you’re only fixing your teeth at this point in your life, or you’re worried about how they might look and how they might make you sound when at work. This is what is so great about the invisible aligners. It is unlikely that anyone around you would be aware that you’re even wearing them! You can also take them out for short periods of time, meaning that if you’re worried about damage, food getting stuck or not being able to eat a certain meal, you can just pop them out and go ahead with your plans.

How do they work?

The aligners work by subtly moving your teeth into the desired position over a period of months. You will receive more than one invisible tray so that once the teeth have been moved a certain amount the new tray shape will allow them to keep moving.

What are the benefits?

The most notable benefit is that they are completely removable. This means that you can take them out and clean them thoroughly, as well as clean your teeth. You won’t miss any areas once they’re removed.

The change in your teeth is subtle and over due course. Within six months, it is possible to have an entirely new smile and everyone around you will be none the wiser!

The trays are made to be comfortable. Unlike with metal braces, the aligners are made from smooth plastic, avoiding any discomfort you might get from sharp pieces of metal.
