Proudly providing Invisalign in London
With Invisalign, you don’t have to compromise on your confidence. At Kensington Dental Practice, we recommend Invisalign for adults and teens who want to improve their smile quickly and discreetly – with no wires, brackets or braces involved! The high-tech straightening system involves wearing a set of clear, made-to-measure aligners that fit over the top of your teeth. When worn, they’re barely visible, yet they work gently, quickly and effectively to move your teeth into the desired position. Invisalign’s advanced material makes the clear aligners extremely comfortable to wear, and you can remove them for cleaning, eating and even for special events. At Kensington Dental Practice, we offer a range of Invisalign systems, including Invisalign Lite, Invisalign i7 and Invisalign Teen – we’ll recommend the best option for your individual needs.
The fast-acting, removable Inman Aligner
With the Inman Aligner system, the team at Kensington Dental Practice can straighten front teeth in an average of 6-18 weeks – ideal if you have a special event on the horizon, or your lifestyle makes lengthy orthodontic treatment an impossibility. The Inman Aligner is a removable, retainer-style system with a patented nickel-titanium design that moves teeth gently and quickly into the desired position. Because you can take it out to eat and to clean your teeth, you won’t experience the kind of hygiene problems that fixed braces can sometimes cause.
Fast fixed brace systems
While traditional fixed braces are an economical option, they generally take a couple of years for treatment to be completed. But with the new generation of fast-acting fixed braces, teeth straightening is becoming easier than ever, proving that it’s never too late to enjoy a straighter, healthier smile. At Kensington Dental Practice, we offer a range of fast-working fixed brace systems, including Damon Braces, Six Month Smiles and CFast. All are designed with high-tech materials so that they feel comfortable to wear and look discreet (with tooth-coloured brackets and wires, for example). Because they focus on the cosmetic front teeth, rather than deeper problems with bite, treatments can be completed in considerably less time than with traditional metal braces.
Six Months Smiles
If time and discretion are of the essence in correcting your teeth, this may be the best treatment for you. Advantages include tooth-coloured brackets, white wires, 4-6 month treatment with minimal discomfort, and usually even a lower cost than traditional metal braces. This treatment emphasizes on aligning the teeth mainly. The special wires made of nickel titanium are able to move your teeth gently yet effectively into position.
You need to expect to wear a retainer as long as you want your teeth to stay in their new straighter position. Depending on preference and your personal situation, you may have a choice between a retainer that is removable and one that is bonded permanently behind your front teeth.
This treatment is, quite simply, the superior option for many people. Six Month Smiles works for adults and adolescents over the age of 15, who have gaps or crooked teeth in the front, without serious bite issues. If this describes you, contact your dentist today for a consultation.
