Correcting your smile with our dentist

So you are looking for a dentist in Cheshire who can help you on your journey to correcting your smile. Of course there are many different reasons as to why a patient may wish to change their smile, and we would be thrilled to talk through your personal journey in greater detail. Simply give us at Willaston Dental Care a call, or head down to our practice to chat things through with a member of our team.

There are many dental needs which may warrant wanting to change your smile, and we are proud to offer a range of treatments to help meet each patient’s needs. Maybe you are struggling with keeping your teeth clean and are looking for a way to correct your smile to enhance your dental hygiene routine. Possibly you have missing teeth, or a single missing tooth which you would like to discuss replacing. Perhaps you wish to go down the route of teeth straightening for cosmetic purposes, or teeth whitening for the same reason. For more details on the range of treatments we offer, a detailed list is available on our website.

How can I straighten my teeth?

There are many possible avenues which may be explored when looking at straightening one’s teeth. It is very important that you consult our dentist when trying to decide about which avenue is best for your personal needs. This is because our dentist in Cheshire will ask questions to explore your dental and medical history, they will probably conduct a full examination of your mouth, and may even take X-rays or scans if necessary. All of these things help to build a picture as to the most suitable treatment for yourself and your needs.

With our dentist in Cheshire we are pleased to offer Invisalign clear aligners to our patients. It may be that, following the aforementioned dental appointment, our dental practitioner would recommend Invisalign aligners to you.

What are Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligners are made using SmartTrack technology to create a series of transparent aligners. This may leave you wondering why multiple aligners are used. There is a simple explanation for this method. Each of the clear braces differs from the previous one which allows for gentle progression from the initial position of your teeth to your realigned smile. The aligners are changed every few weeks, at our dentist’s instruction, and regular check-ups are required for assessing progress and for you to collect your next set of aligners.

How are Invisalign aligners adapted to fit my teeth?

Invisalign aligners are able to be made completely unique to you through the possible use of photographs, X-rays, 3D scanning technology and dental impressions. The impressions are particularly key in creating the first set of aligners and making sure that the aligners fit your teeth snugly. The other technologies may be used in order to help inform your individual care plan. During your initial Invisalign consultation (after it has been decided that this could be a recommendable course of action for yourself) we will discuss your end goal for your smile, and from there your plan can be created. This is also a valuable opportunity for you to discuss any questions with our dentist, including how long you may expect your treatment to take. As a guide, it can take anywhere between 6 and 24 months to complete an Invisalign care plan. This is of course dependent upon the severity of the issues that are to be addressed through the plan, and the patient’s personal requirements.

If you prefer to discuss anything with us in person, you can expect to receive a warm welcome at our dental practice.
