Did you not get your teeth straightened when you were a teenager because you did not want to wear braces? Perhaps now you suffer from self-consciousness when you smile or laugh. For the past 30 years, Smile Care Dental Clinic has been correcting a variety of dental conditions.
Dental braces have been used for decades, but in the late 1990s, a new method involving dental aligners was introduced, and we have been using it successfully. We use Invisalign Leicester to treat both youngsters and adults alike, and both are satisfied with the process and the results. Invisalign aligners are not as obvious as dental braces because they are made from clear thermoplastic, which can fit over teeth instead of being attached to the outside of the teeth.
Healthy mouth, mind and body!
Smile Care Dental Clinic has grown with the local community over the past three decades. Our primary role is the care of your teeth and gums which includes ensuring that your physical health is not adversely affected because of your oral health.
Misaligned teeth, referred to as malocclusion by dentists, can cause several problems that can affect your health. If you have crooked or overcrowded teeth, you are more likely to suffer from gum disease than someone with straight teeth. Your ability to brush your teeth properly may be inhibited because of the difficulty to get between your teeth. Suffering from malocclusion can cause plaque build-up on your teeth, resulting in more bacteria in your mouth. Misaligned teeth will cause you to have a poor bite, which can result in chipped or cracked teeth and enamel wear. Chewing your food properly is less efficient, and the bacteria build-up can cause bad breath. Headaches and a reluctance to smile will eventually affect your mood and mental well-being.
Our history demonstrates our commitment to you, and our team’s complementary expertise and skills have grown and adapted over the decades to provide the local community with a broad range of dental services to meet their demands. We are proud of the many smiles that we have created using Invisalign Leicester.
Discreet treatment on the go
Our team will conduct an orthodontic assessment of your condition using the latest oral imaging equipment, which will provide a complete virtual impression of your mouth. Using the associated software, we can show you a visual image of how your smile can look after treatment. We will discuss your options, the appropriate treatment plan that suits you and how it will correct your malocclusion. One of the features of Invisalign Leicester is the fact that because the aligners are made from a clear dental material, your treatment will be virtually undetectable. A series of aligners will be produced based on your particular condition. Each of these aligners has a slightly different design, enabling them to move your teeth into the intended positions. Aligners are required to be worn for at least 22 hours a day each and for between two and three weeks before moving to the next aligner. We will monitor your progress and guide you to ensure that continuity of treatment is maintained.
Let your joy radiate
Once your treatment has been completed you will still need to wear a final aligner to hold your teeth in their new position. At Smile Care Dental Clinic, we derive a great deal of satisfaction from seeing our patients complete successful treatments. The pure joy on their faces when they smile without any inhibition demonstrating their newfound confidence, is gratifying.
