At Sheen Dental, we offer a wide range of treatments from general dentistry, orthodontics and preventive dentistry, through to restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and emergency care. We even have facial aesthetics treatments for patients who want help from dentists who are experts in facial anatomy and are skilled in carrying out delicate work. Whatever your needs, we can help. As a practice that has been established for over 25 years, we have experienced and friendly staff who are ready to take good care of you. With our investment in using the latest technology during our treatments, you can also be sure that you are getting the most effective treatment from your dentist Richmond. For patients who need to realign their teeth, we have one such example of the latest technology being used to get you a great smile.
If you are looking for a dentist Richmond to help realign your teeth, you may be delighted to discover that you can do so without the need for metal wires and brackets that are on show to everyone. If you have mild to moderate alignment issues, we have a treatment which is discreet, efficient and can achieve results in just 6 to 18 months, depending on your specific needs.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses the latest iTero technology to scan your mouth to get the measurements for bespoke clear plastic aligners to be made for you. These aligners are worn over the teeth and sit along the gumline. They are a bit like a rugby gum shield, but they are a whole lot more streamlined! Other people will only be able to see your teeth showing through the clear plastic, so they shouldn’t notice you are busy realigning your teeth when you’re chatting to them. The iTero technology can also be used to generate a 3D animation of how your teeth will look after treatment has been completed, before you embark upon using the aligners. This can be a real motivating factor in the treatment as you have the best idea of how your teeth will look after wearing your aligners for 22 hours a day.
Yes, we did say 22 hours a day and no, we can count! With Invisalign you can remove your aligners for up to 2 hours a day. You don’t have to wear them when you are eating and drinking, which means that your diet can remain unchanged. You can also take them out when you want a little break, perhaps for playing sports or for meeting up with friends - the flexibility of choice is yours!
Along with the discreet factor and the convenience of removing the aligners when you need to, you also won’t need to come and visit us too often (as much as we love seeing you!) You will be provided with 6 weeks’ worth of aligners to change between on a regular basis, so you only have to come in for a check-up every 6 weeks, allowing you more time to get on with your busy life, we know you have better things to do than keep us company. You also shouldn’t need to see us for emergency appointments, as plastic is a lot harder to break than metal wires and brackets!
If you want to find out more about any of our treatments and how we can help, why not book in for an initial consultation with our dentist Richmond? We can examine your mouth fully and discuss your goals for your teeth. We can then come up with a treatment plan that suits your needs together and get you smiling your best smile, congratulating yourself on having visited the practice that has it all in one place.
