Teeth straightening with our dentist in Welling

Straightening your teeth helps you achieve a beautiful and attractive smile but it also helps you improve your dental health. If you undergo teeth straightening with our dentist in Welling then not only will you improve the aesthetics of your smile but you will also promote the longevity of your teeth at the same time.

If you are proud of your smile it is more likely that you will maintain a better dental hygiene routine, visit the dentist more often and want your teeth to look the best they can do. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile then you are more likely to neglect your teeth, visit the dentist less often and therefore your teeth become more prone to decay or disease.


Teeth that are crooked, wonky or uneven have more hard to reach areas in which food and bacteria linger and therefore there is greater chance of plaque and tartar developing on the surface of your teeth. Plaque and tartar are the main causes of decay and disease and over time cause irreversible damage to your teeth. By correcting the misalignment of your teeth using the different teeth straightening options that are now available here at your dentist in Welling, you can prevent dental health issues and enjoy a happy and healthy mouth for life.


Invisalign


Here at Smile Welling we are pleased to present Invisalign as one of our most popular teeth straightening options. Invisalign is a modern and highly effective method of teeth straightening. It has become hugely popular worldwide. Over the last few decades it has helped correct over 12 million smiles across the world and continues to be the most popular teeth straightening option amongst young people and adults. This is because not only is it highly effective but it is discrete and convenient, ideal for the modern generation. Invisalign works using clear thermoplastic aligners which are bpa-free and almost invisible when they are worn in the mouth. Each aligner is individually designed and manufactured. Invisalign uses the latest in digital Dental Technology to create these aligners and therefore they produce excellent aesthetic results. Patients report that they are also comfortable to wear and easy to become accustomed to. Most patients become used to the aligners within the first 24-hours. They can be taken out of your mouth as a necessity, however it is important that you wear them for at least 20 to 22 hours a day. Each aligner is designed to be effective for up to 2 weeks after which they will no longer move your teeth and you move on to the next aligner in the series. You may find that the alignment of your teeth is corrected within as little as 4 months or it may take up to 18 months depending on your dental requirements.


Invisalign is ideal for those with mild or moderate misalignment issues and for more complex cases it will take longer to straighten your teeth.
