Keeping up appearances in SW14

Are you a well-known face in Richmond? Do you spend your time shaking hands with people in the local community? Does your job mean that you are meeting and greeting all the time? Whether you are a teacher, a local politician or receptionist, if your job puts you on the front line, appearance matters.

And if you already feel self-conscious about your teeth, chances are that you aren’t going to want to draw any more attention to them by wearing conspicuous braces. In order to get a straighter smile and a grin you are proud of, do you need to sacrifice up to two years to a mouth full of metal?

The good news is – no you don’t! In SW14, Invisalign is an increasingly popular way to straighten your teeth without anyone even knowing you are having treatment.

Invisalign isn’t like other braces: it doesn’t use brackets and wires. The Invisalign system is made up of a series of clear, plastic aligners, much like thin mouth guards. The aligners fit snugly over the teeth and can’t be seen unless someone is very close up.

You take the aligners out for cleaning, eating and if you are drinking anything other than plain water, so they don’t stain. And although you need to wear them for at least 20 hours a day, if you do need to attend a high-profile event or special social occasion in SW14, Invisalign aligners can be removed for an hour or two.

At Sheen Dental in SW14, Invisalign is one way we help our patients to a happier smile. Because there are no wires to be tightened, it means that you don’t need to come and see our dentist that often while you are having treatment – once every six to eight weeks is enough. You replace the aligners yourself every week to 10 days. Each set gently nudges your teeth a bit further towards their desired end position.
