Dental tips, news and insights
A beautiful smile can change everything in your life, including your confidence, outlook and self-esteem. People with crowded, misaligned or crooked teeth avoid smiling as they are self-conscious about their appearance. A lot of them are sceptical when it comes to teeth straightening, because they think it can only be achieved with traditional metal braces.
Achieving the smile you have always dreamed of doesn’t have to affect your lifestyle and daily activities. At Parkfield Dental Practice, we offer Invisalign, an innovative cosmetic treatment that straightens your teeth quickly and discreetly without the use of metal brackets and wires.
Invisalign consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom made specifically for your teeth. The aligners are made of smooth plastic that fit comfortably over your teeth and gums. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move little by little, gradually reaching their final position.
Invisalign may not be the best treatment for severely crooked teeth or major bite alterations. In this case we may recommend a different teeth straightening method for effective results.
Treatment time with Invisalign varies from patient to patient, however most people don’t have to wear the aligners for more than 12 months.
Finally, with the removable Invisalign trays, it may be possible to use them to whiten your teeth after your treatment has completed. Please contact the practice today to speak with any of our friendly and professional team, who will be more than happy to advise and discuss any queries you have on 0161 445 2397.
