Invisalign in Richmond: show off your smile, not your braces
A genuine and heartfelt smile always makes the best impression. However, very few people are born with perfect teeth. If you are an adult with crooked teeth and you would like to avoid metal braces, then Invisalign is the right option for you.
Invisalign in Richmond is an innovative teeth straightening treatment that helps you straighten your teeth discreetly without traditional, metal braces. Our experienced dentists at Sheen Dental will examine your teeth and jaw thoroughly and help you determine whether this is the right treatment for you. Most people can take advantage of Invisalign, however, if your teeth are severely crooked, your dentist may recommend a different treatment.
How does Invisalign work
As an alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign offers a teeth straightening adjustment method that uses a series of transparent aligners, to gradually adjust your teeth. These aligners are made of high-quality plastic and are customised to fit snugly over your teeth. They are created with the help of 3D technology to help your dentist monitor your progress throughout the treatment.
Patients are required to wear each set of aligners for at least two weeks, before moving to the next set in the series. Gradually, their teeth will move little by little until they have reached their final position. Treatment times vary for each patient and depend upon many factors; however, most people have their teeth straightened with Invisalign between 9-12 months.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign has many benefits compared to traditional teeth straightening methods. Invisibility is one of them. Invisalign aligners are transparent, therefore, nobody will know that you are undergoing treatment. More importantly, Invisalign aligners can be removed. This means that you can brush and floss your teeth as you normally would, as well as eat your favourite foods without worrying. However, it is important to wear your aligners at least 20 hours per day for effective treatment. Finally, Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear and do not cause any harm in your mouth or soft tissue.
