Everywhere you look you’ll see smiley, happy people (maybe even holding hands). From social media posts to magazines to the red carpet, everyone seems to be able to smile without a second thought. But if you have misaligned teeth, you may not feel the same euphoria when faced with a camera lens. You may even wish you had a different set of teeth altogether. Thankfully, this isn’t necessary and there may be a discreet way to realign your teeth without anyone knowing that you are wearing anything in your mouth to do this!

Invisalign Harley Street is a treatment that is used to treat mild to moderate alignment issues and is well worth checking out. It can yield results in as little as 6 months depending on your individual circumstances.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign involves clear plastic aligners that apply gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into the desired position over a period of time. You will be provided with sets of aligners to change between over a period of 6 weeks, before having a checkup with your dentist and receiving more sets of aligners to take home again. After treatment has been completed, you will then need to wear retainers.

Where does one begin? Probably the most advantageous aspect of choosing Invisalign is the fact that when you are wearing the aligners, nobody should notice that you have anything in your mouth at all. They are light years away from fixed metal braces in that they go unnoticed and they also do a special range for teenagers who may not want to have their teeth realigned if people can see visible braces. There also shouldn’t be any complaints from teenagers and adults alike as the aligners are comfortable to wear; they are made bespoke to fit your mouth thanks to the iTero technology that is used to take a 3D scan of your mouth from which the measurements will be made to make your aligners fit snugly on the gum line. From the scan, you will also be able to see a digital animation of what your teeth will look like after treatment before you have even started wearing the aligners. It’s a great way to motivate yourself to wear the aligners when they then arrive.

Another benefit of Invisalign is the fact that they are removable for up to 2 hours a day. This means that you can take them out when you are eating and drinking, and you won’t have any mess to clear up afterwards – on your aligners anyway. It also means that you don’t have to wear them when doing other things such as sport or going to a job interview, for example. You can also maintain your normal oral hygiene routine by removing them while you brush and floss. Finally, there is very little risk of your plastic aligners breaking, unlike with metal wires and brackets. This means that you should not have to spend as much time visiting the dentist.

If you think that you’d like to get a smile on your face that you are proud of, why not contact your dentist and find out more? There’s never a better time to smile than now!
