Six Months to a Sensational Smile!

Incredible smiles produced in just six months!

If you want to correct crooked teeth but are worried that you’ll have to wear braces for a long time, you might be surprised to find that many people take off their braces after as little as six months. That’s right – Six Month Smiles could straighten your teeth in just half a year!

Six Month Smiles doesn’t just deal with crooked teeth – this versatile treatment also tackles overcrowding, spacing issues and overbites.

Advantages of six month smiles

As well as the speedy treatment time, Six Month Smiles offers a discreet alternative to traditional braces. The brackets and nickel-titanium wires are designed to blend in with your tooth shade, so they’re far less noticeable than the braces you’re probably used to seeing.

Six Month Smiles is a great idea if you have a wedding or holiday coming up, as the shorter treatment time means you could be smiling confidently in time for your special day.

With Six Month Smiles, you’ll need to visit your dentist every four to five weeks so they can check your progress and make any necessary adjustments. These sessions should only take around 15 minutes, so there will be minimal impact on your day-to-day life.

About cosmetic braces

Cosmetic braces are designed to offer patients more discretion than traditional braces. Many patients worry about having orthodontic treatment because they don’t want to put up with comments about their appearance, feel self-conscious when they look in the mirror or jeopardise their chances when it comes to business meetings or interviews. With cosmetic braces, you can have treatment without any of these anxieties and enjoy greater confidence on the way to your new, straight smile.

We offer a diverse range of treatments that promise to deliver great results with minimal disruption to your day to day life. Our treatments include:

  • Invisalign: a removable aligner system that uses transparent appliances to straighten the teeth without anybody knowing that you’re undergoing treatment.
  • Inman Aligner: a fast, discreet solution for mild problems with the front teeth, this removable aligner usually takes just 16 weeks to straighten the teeth.
  • Six Month Smiles: a discreet, fixed brace system ideal for minor problems with the front teeth, this brace can have you smiling confidently in just six months.

The Stages of Treatment for Amazing Invisalign Braces

Invisalign is one of our most popular orthodontic treatments and it’s not hard to see why! This invisible treatment enables patients of all ages to achieve the perfect smile without anyone even knowing that they are wearing a brace.

The stages of Invisalign treatment

Invisalign treatment offers a modern alternative to traditional fixed braces. Rather than wearing a fixed brace made from brackets and wires, Invisalign involves wearing a series of clear plastic aligners, which are removable and invisible to others.

Before you begin treatment, you will have a consultation with one of your dentists, who will assess your orthodontic needs, analyse your bite and have a good chat with you about the treatment, what it involves, how it works and what kinds of benefits it offers.

Invisalign treatment is planned in advanced using the latest software. Using the information provided by your dentist, the programme will plot the movement of the teeth and design the templates for your bespoke aligners. Each patient receives a set of aligners, all of which are different.

When your aligners are ready, you can start your treatment and your dentist will explain how to use the aligners, when to swap them over and how to look after them. You should wear your aligners for two weeks at a time in the specified order.

During your treatment, your dentist will schedule regular follow-up sessions to see how you are getting on. If you have any questions or concerns at all between appointments, just call the clinic and we will be happy to help.

Once your dentist is happy with the results of your treatment and satisfied with the new position of your teeth, you can remove your aligner for the last time and start enjoying your amazing new smile! After treatment, you will be advised to wear a retainer to help prevent the teeth from slipping out of position. Some patients choose to have whitening treatment and we will be happy to discuss options with you.

Straighten Your Teeth Quickly and Effectively with the Inman Aligner

You can now have your teeth straightened in a matter of weeks.  No longer do you need to wait many months or even years to have straight teeth, all the while wearing an unsightly set of metal braces.  The Inman Aligner corrects crooked teeth quickly and has only a small bar across the front teeth that is visible.

The average time you will have to wear an Inman Aligner is less than six months and treatment can be completed in only six weeks.  It is totally removable, which makes eating and drinking so much easier.  Traditional metal braces can be difficult to clean and make social occasions difficult, especially if you are a young person.  Inman aligners are extremely discreet but can be taken for a special social occasion if it will benefit your confidence to do so.

The Inman Aligner is unable to rotate teeth but is ideal for small alignment issues.  It uses the power of a coiled spring on the inside of your teeth.  The spring pushes out the lateral teeth against the straightening bar at the front of the mouth, the only visible part of the Inman Aligner when you smile.

The Inman Aligner represents a huge improvement on the traditional brace with their metal brackets and wires which had to be worn sometimes for years.

Invisalign Straightens Teeth Without Wires or Brackets!

The Invisalign system is one of the main innovations of modern orthodontics, providing effective tooth straightening invisibly.

In the past patients from Central London and throughout the UK had to suffer the stigma and discomfort of fixed brackets and wires, which instantly drew attention to their mouth and teeth. Thankfully, today we have clear aligners, such as those used during the Invisalign treatment. These are used to straighten teeth, creating beautiful, straight smiles without the embarrassment of metal attachments.

How does Invisalign work?

The Invisalign system involves the use of several clear aligners (generally between 18-30), which are replaced every two weeks with a new and differently aligned clear aligner. This graduation from one aligner shape to the next gradually moves the teeth into their new position, without the need for wires or brackets.

How are Invisalign aligners made?

First, impressions and images will be taken of your teeth and these will be sent to the Invisalign laboratories. There, they not only make your set of personalised aligners, but also show you how your teeth will look after your treatment is complete, which your dentist will show you using the Clin-Check system.

How long does Invisalign take to straighten my teeth?

Invisalign can be used to treat a range of orthodontic conditions, including crooked teeth, gapped teeth, twisted teeth and overbites and generally the time it takes to straighten your teeth will vary between 9-24 months, depending on the severity of your orthodontic condition.

The length of your treatment will be discussed during your consultation.

What are the main benefits of Invisalign?

  • Treatment is completely invisible and no one will see that you are having your teeth straightened.
  • The aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and clean your teeth, ensuring that your oral health is kept at its very best.
  • As there are no wires or attachment and due to the lower forces used with Invisalign you will not experience the soreness, ulcers and discomfort most fixed brace wearing encounter.

Modern Orthodontics In Brentford

Orthodontics is one of the most exciting and innovative areas of dentistry and modern patients are spoiled for choice when it comes to treatments to straighten the teeth and correct issues with the bite. At Advance Dental Clinic we are proud to offer our patients a selection of the latest orthodontic treatments and we have options to suit patients with all kinds of orthodontic problems. Our range of treatments includes clear braces, removable aligners and discreet fixed braces and we have treatments available to cater for patients of all ages with varying treatment preferences. Invisalign is one of the most popular modern treatments and this is largely due to the fact that it has the power to straighten the teeth without anyone being able to see the brace. Rather than using metal wires and brackets, Invisalign treatment involves the patient wearing a series of removable, clear appliances, which are known as aligners. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and then swapped for the next. For patients who have minor orthodontic issues and are looking for a rapid solution, the Inman Aligner is an excellent choice. This removable appliance works extremely quickly to address mild issues affecting the front teeth, with an average treatment time of 6-16 weeks. The Inman Aligner isn’t invisible, but only a thin metal bar can be seen, making this a much more discreet treatment than conventional braces. We also offer 6 Month Smiles, a swift fixed brace treatment, which offers brilliant aesthetics, as well as speed. These braces are made from clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires and they focus on the social 6 to ensure that you look and feel amazing when you smile. As you can probably guess from the name, you can enjoy your brand new smile in just 6 months with this incredible treatment.
