A clear solution for straighter teeth
Perhaps the thought of having metal braces doesn’t appeal to you, but your overcrowded, crooked or gappy teeth prevent you from smiling to your fullest. At Sheen Dental, we have a solution: Invisalign. In Richmond, our dentists want you to feel as comfortable as possible and so this clear alternative to traditional braces might just be for you.
At Sheen Dental in Richmond, Invisalign has transformed teeth straightening for adults. It is an almost invisible alternative to metal braces. Invisalign works using a series of clear aligners placed over your teeth, which shift them gradually over time. Your dentist will take a mould of your teeth and from there, the hard work can be left to us.
Using 3D imaging technology, your clear aligners will be custom-made to fit your teeth and move them into straighter positions. You’ll visit us regularly during your treatment so that we can check all is going well and you are happy. Depending on your individual case, Invisalign can take as little as 6 months to straighten your teeth and maximally around 24 months. In general Invisalign works quicker than traditional metal braces.
Discretion and comfort
At Sheen Dental, Invisalign is a popular choice for adults wanting to straighten their teeth without sporting the train track look. The smooth plastic design of Invisalign clear aligners makes them more comfortable than fixed metal brackets and wires. Their almost invisible appearance also means you can get on with work and socialising without feeling self-conscious about your smile.
It is also the flexibility of wearing Invisalign that a lot of patients find appealing. We recommend that you wear your clear aligners 20–22 hours a day and that you remove them when you eat, brush or floss your teeth. The fact that they can be removed periodically means that they can fit around your lifestyle, whether you’re going out to dinner or wanting to enjoy a big bag of popcorn at the cinema.
