Considering getting Invisalign teeth in Glasgow? Many of our patients come to us feeling embarrassed or uncomfortable about misaligned teeth. However, for most adults, the idea of wearing fixed braces is a definite no.
We want our patients to look and feel their best. That is why we recommend Invisalign; an effective way to correct crooked or gap teeth without having to wear visible braces.
What are Invisalign aligners?
Invisalign clear aligners are thin plastic trays that are shaped to your teeth and worn throughout the day and night. They are only taken out for eating and for drinking hot drinks. They are like invisible braces to help you get straighter teeth.
As you wear them, the aligners gradually move your teeth to their desired position, making them straighter and better aligned.
The great thing about Invisalign is that they are totally transparent. Most people will not know you’re wearing them unless you tell them.
Who are Invisalign teeth for?
Invisalign Glasgow can work well for a number of teeth imperfections, including:
• Crooked teeth
• Large gaps
Invisalign is also an effective treatment for people who have already had braces, but whose teeth have moved overtime.
They can be worn by adults and teens, with many adults opting for this treatment instead of traditional fixed, visible braces.
What is the Invisalign process?
Your teeth will be assessed, and a custom treatment plan will be created for you. Using 3D scanning technology, you will be able to see a virtual impression of your brand-new smile.
You will then receive your first sets of clear aligners to be worn throughout the day and night. You will change these plastic trays every ten to fourteen days as your teeth move.
When your teeth have been moved to the correct position, a set of retainers will be fitted to keep your new smile in-tact.
How long does it take?
The length of the treatment can vary, depending on your level of teeth misalignment. Generally, it takes between three to nine months to perfect your smile.
