Sometimes you may want more from your smile than just clean, healthy teeth and this is when cosmetic dentistry is an option that you can discuss with your dentist in Cheshire.

What is Invisalign?


We all want the perfect smile. Misaligned teeth can be uncomfortable and embarrassing and can affect our self confidence, which in turn can impact other aspects of our lives. To solve this issue, and replace traditional metal braces, dentists have been offering Invisalign since 1997. Invisalign aligners are transparent orthodontic devices; a plastic form of dental braces, which are individually tailored, almost invisible, as hinted by in the name, and metal free. Invisalign can be used to treat gapped teeth, crowded teeth, overbite, underbite and crossbite. As long as your teeth are healthy and in good condition, this may be the ideal option for you, so speak to your dentist in Cheshire about Invisalign today.


How does Invisalign work?


We at Willaston Dental Care, will firstly book you a consultation with your dentist about what you would like to change about your smile and you will undergo a digital scan of your teeth. A 3-dimensional image will be created to show you what your teeth could potentially look like, an achievable final target will be set and the aligners will be designed and created accordingly to help you reach your desired result. The treatment involves working your way through a series of aligners which gradually help position your teeth into the correct or desired position. Each aligner is designed to move your teeth up to 0.25mm, allowing you to transform your smile comfortably and discreetly.


The advantages of Invisalign


A perfect smile boosts you self confidence and helps you feel good about yourselves. It is also one of the first things other people notice when they look at you. Invisalign has made it easier than ever to correct your visual dental problems, straighten and reposition your teeth and achieve the perfect smile. Invisalign aligners are easy to clean, as you simply remove the aligner, gently brush with toothpaste and warm water and put them back in your mouth.


With Invisalign you do not require too many appointments with your dentist either which makes the treatment process much more convenient. If you order your aligners in advance you can progress on to the next stage by yourself as necessary. Another great advantage of Invisalign is there are no restrictions to what you may eat or drink as the aligners can be taken out at any time. They are safe for everyone, comfortable and the clear aligners ensure complete discretion so you will be able to achieve the perfect smile and know one will even have to find out until you have done so.
