Correcting misaligned teeth with Invisalign in Gainsborough

Does smiling make you feel so self-conscious that you cover your mouth with your hand when you do it? Are you worried about your confidence slipping if you spend years in a set of metal braces even though your crooked teeth have already caused a massive lack of confidence as it is? At Dee Kay Dental, we want to change all that and help transform your teeth to give you the smile you deserve with Invisalign in Gainsborough so that your confidence can be fully renewed and you can smile and laugh without hiding.

Why choose Invisalign over traditional braces?

Clear aligners are the most advanced orthodontic system available on the market today, they have given more people straighter smiles in less time and discomfort than it takes for traditional braces. Traditional braces utilize a strong glue to secure a metal bracket to each tooth, some people may find some discomfort in wearing these metal brackets, although it is a common treatment and most people are content with the traditional wired braces. A metal wire is threaded through these brackets and is set at a different tension each month in order to pull the teeth into position. This technique takes a very long time to work often being the deciding factor in whether to choose Invisalign or traditional braces.

With Invisalign in Gainsborough, you don’t have any of the issues that are presented with traditional braces but what you do get is all of the results which have been seen in as little as 4 months while the average case usually takes under 9 months. The best part of all of this is that the treatment is just about invisible; clear aligners are used to gently push the teeth into position over time with no one even noticing that you are even wearing an orthodontic appliance, that’s how discreet it is. The pushing of the teeth is also said to be much more gentle than the pulling technique that braces use and this ease of comfort makes life under treatment much more enjoyable.

The Invisalign system is removable and can fit into any lifestyle, whether it be corporate and professional or active and sporty, this also means you can take them out to enjoy whichever foods you would normally eat and you can ensure that they and your teeth are properly cleaned.

What can Invisalign fix?

Invisalign in Gainsborough can fix overcrowded teeth as well as crooked or gapped teeth and it can correct malocclusions (problems with the bite) like an overbite, underbite, and crossbite.

How appointments work

First, you will partake in a virtual consultation with our dentist to help you decide if you want to move forward with this treatment and then we can book an in practice appointment for the treatment itself.

At this appointment your mouth will be scanned with a 3D digital scanner, this is pain-free and only takes a few seconds. The information collected in this scan will be sent to a lab which then creates your custom clear aligners which will then be sent to you in order for you to begin treatment.
