How can our dentist realign your smile?

It may come as no surprise to hear that orthodontics provide one of the most popular areas of dental treatment that we offer here at Align & Smile. Why? Because for patients with misaligned teeth, it can be a cause of low self-esteem and we have a range of discreet treatments that address this issue and enable patients to get a smile they can be proud of, without other people knowing how they are achieving the results. One example of such a treatment is Invisalign. Invisalign is used by our dentist in Canary Wharf to treat alignment issues such as crowded or gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, or crossbites in just 6 to 18 months on average.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign is a clear plastic aligner system, which our dentist in Canary Wharf may use to treat your teeth. The aligners are made bespoke for your mouth, using iTero technology to digitally scan your mouth to obtain the measurements for them. From this, you can also see a video of what your teeth will look like after the treatment is finished, before you’ve commenced wearing the aligners. It can be an exciting look into the future to see your amazing smile! The aligners are worn over your teeth and should be as comfortable as possible to wear, because they are made to measure. When they are being worn, only the teeth should be visible to others through the clear plastic. What’s more, the aligners push the teeth into the targeted position and all you will need to do is to change your aligners every couple of weeks. During this time, you are also able to remove the aligners each day for a couple of hours.

Removable convenience

You should find it very convenient to be able to remove the aligners each day, because it means that you won’t have to eat whilst wearing them. You won’t have to clean food off them and you won’t need to avoid eating any particular foods for fear of breaking the aligners. You will also be able to clean your teeth without your aligners in your mouth and this should mean that you don’t develop any issues with your oral health. What’s more, you should also have time to remove them for other reasons, such as playing sports or singing an aria – whatever you feel like doing, basically! At Align & Smile, our dentist in Canary Wharf will simply want you to be happy about your treatment and Invisalign should tick the happiness box for most!

Is this the right treatment for me?

To find out what the appropriate treatment is for you, you will need to come in for an initial consultation to discuss what your goals are for your smile. We will be able to examine you and recommend the treatments you can consider. We are open for 3 late evenings until 7pm during the week, and we open on Saturdays as well, so whatever your schedule, you should have time to meet our friendly and experienced team who are ready to get you the treatment you need. If you do use Invisalign, you will end up with a fantastic smile, but nobody else needs to know how you’ve achieved it!
