Invisible braces for visible smiles: Invisalign in Richmond

Surveys have shown that more than 200,000 children and adults in England and Wales started orthodontic treatment last year. Whilst the vast majority were children, an increasing number of adults are turning to orthodontics in order to restore their smile and recover the lost time. However, it is a no secret that many adolescents and adults are embarrassed and terrified at the possibility of having to wear traditional braces since the idea of a ‘metal mouth’ is not appealing at all. Today’s orthodontics offer more options than ever before.Invisalign aligners are a revolutionary treatment in orthodontics. In Richmond, Invisalign can help you achieve the smile of your dreams at Sheen Dental.


Invisalign aligners

Since its introduction, Invisalign treatment has transformed the face of orthodontics since it allows people to straighten their teeth without having to wear braces.More than 4 million patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign to date and the number of Invisalign smiles grows constantly.

At Sheen Dental, our dentists are trained to treat patients using Invisalign to the highest standards. In Richmond, Invisalign trays are made of medical grade plastic, are very comfortable to wear and are completely invisible. In contrast to traditional or lingual braces, the Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing your teeth.

Invisalign is an ideal solution for patients who are concerned about the aesthetical side of orthodontics, but they might not be suitable for severe cases of misaligned teeth.

If you decide to use Invisalign in Richmond, your initial consultation appointment at Sheen Dental for the creation of your first pair of aligners should be followed by visits every six to eight weeks for check-ups and replacement of the trays. It is recommended that you wear the aligners at least 20 hours per day throughout your entire treatment for best results.

The cost of Invisalign is dependent on the complexity of your dental problem and your specific type of treatment. Generally, Invisalign does not cost more than traditional metal braces.
