More and more people are choosing to get invisible braces these days. That's because they know that with invisible braces from our dentist in Cheam, they can get straight teeth without anyone ever knowing they're wearing them! Invisible braces can be placed behind your teeth, making them completely hidden, and they work just as well as traditional braces. You'll love the results!
What are invisible braces, and how do they work?
Invisible braces are a type of braces that are not visible to the naked eye; they work by using clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth and gently move your teeth into the correct positions. Invisible braces are a great option if you want to keep your braces hidden from view. They are also a good option if you have a busy lifestyle and don't want to wear traditional braces for a long time.
Who is a good candidate for invisible braces?
Invisible braces are becoming more and more popular due to the many benefits they offer. They are a great choice for people who want to improve their smiles but don't want to have traditional braces that are visible to others. However, invisible braces are only suitable for those who have mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
How long does the treatment take and what are the results?
The typical treatment time for invisible braces is between 12 and 18 months, depending on the severity of your case. The results are typically a straighter, more aligned smile.
Unlike traditional metal braces, invisible braces are virtually undetectable and can straighten your teeth in a relatively short amount of time. Additionally, because they're made from clear plastic, you can keep them on during meals and even while you sleep!
What should you expect during your appointment for your invisible braces?
When you go in for your appointment to get your invisible braces, our dentist in Cheam will take a 3D scan of your teeth. This scan allows us to create a custom fit for your braces. You may also need to have a CT scan or an x-ray taken of your teeth so that our team can get a clear view of your teeth's alignment. After that, our dentist in Cheam will determine how long it will take to fix your teeth and give you an estimate of how much it will cost.
