Invisalign for a smile to show off proudly

Factors affecting the appearance of your smile

There are many different factors which affect the appearance of your teeth. You may find that despite having a really good dental hygiene routine and taking extra care of your oral health that you may be unhappy with the alignment of them. You may suffer from crooked or wonky teeth, you may have gaps in your teeth or you may feel your teeth are too overcrowded for your mouth. By addressing these issues, not only will you be improving the look of your smile, but you will also be improving your overall oral health. This is because teeth that are perfectly aligned are much easier to keep clean. And it is better to address the alignment of your teeth at an early age when your adult teeth have come through, such as in teenagers when it is common to see traditional orthodontic braces for straightening the teeth. By making sure you have a straight and symmetrical smile from early on in life you will be able to retain your natural teeth and enjoy better oral health for a longer period.

If you did not undergo orthodontic treatment when you were younger and have decided to  address the alignment issues of your teeth, looking for a beautiful straight smile, then speak to us today. There are many different treatment options available for correcting the aesthetic issues of your teeth and with advances in dental technology we are able to provide choices for everyone. When you book an appointment at our practice to visit your dentist you will first undergo a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums to make sure that they are strong and healthy. Here at Dee Kay Dental we are proud to present Invisalign in Sheffield.

What is Invisalign and how does it work?

Invisalign in Sheffield is a modern, convenient and discreet method of addressing the misalignment of your teeth, especially in adults who may be reluctant about considering traditional orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign in Sheffield works using clear plastic aligners which are individually manufactured to fit your mouth precisely, to provide an accurate and comfortable treatment procedure for you. With the help of specialised 3-dimensional scans, Invisalign technicians will create a series of aligners for you which are designed to be worn for two weeks at a time for around 22 hours of the day. These aligners can be taken out of your mouth and put back in again at your convenience, so they do not affect other aspects of your lifestyle or your dietary choices. Each aligner is designed to apply pressure on your teeth and move their position by up to 0.25 mm. Once you have worked your way through the whole series of aligners it should result in a perfectly aligned smile. During this time you will visit your dentist on a regular basis, preferably after every two or three aligners to make sure that the treatment procedure is coming along successfully. Speak to us at Dee Kay Dental today and find out more about Invisalign and how it can help you create a wonderful smile you can be proud to show off.
