A clear reason to smile
Anyone with crooked teeth knows how debilitating it can be. They can cause physical problems, but most people worry about them because of their visual impact. Everyone wants to look their best and if you are unhappy with your appearance, you may be familiar with hiding your smile or feeling awkward talking to others.
If you have dismissed corrective treatment because you assumed it would involve metal braces, think again. You may be interested in a system that can straighten your teeth comfortably, effectively and discreetly. At Sheen Dental in Richmond, Invisalign is a technique that uses clear plastic aligners. It is popular with many of our patients.
What are the advantages?
The main benefit is that the aligners are almost invisible unless someone is trying to see them. They are made of clear plastic, so you can smile without feeling self-conscious and are removeable for eating, cleaning or special occasions. This ensures that they fit into your lifestyle and that their impact on everyday activities is minimal. For our patients in Richmond, Invisalign has been a great solution that avoids the inconvenience or embarrassment of having ugly metal braces.
What should I expect when I have Invisalign in Richmond?
The first stage is a consultation, in which you can ask any questions you may have and we can assess the state of your mouth, and take measurements. Invisalign aligners gently reposition your teeth and are individually made to suit your mouth so you can get the results you want. You will need to wear them for 20-22 hours per day and will receive a new set every week to 10 days. This is so they adapt to the changing position of your teeth and continue to guide them into the right place. We will invite you for an appointment every six to eight weeks to ensure that treatment is progressing well. Treatment usually takes between six months and two years, depending on the severity of your misalignment. You can try Invisalign in Richmond and join over four million people who have benefitted from it worldwide.
We look forward to talking to you about whether Invisalign in Richmond is the treatment for you.
