Straighten your teeth discreetly with invisible braces in Colchester

Have you been wanting to straighten your teeth, but you are discouraged by the mere thought of having to wear metal brackets and wires? You are not alone. As a matter of fact, many adults are abandoning the idea of teeth straightening because they think that metal braces are their only option. Luckily, this is not the case. Modern dentistry has advanced considerably and now patients can have their teeth straightened discreetly.

At Hello Dental, we appreciate that our adult patients are reluctant to have their teeth straightened with metal brackets and wires and for this reason, we offer Smilelign, a revolutionary technique that uses clear aligners to move your teeth into their correct position. Smilelign braces in Colchester are barely visible, very comfortable and can even reduce treatment time by several months.

How do these braces work?

The first step in seeking treatment with Smilelign is to make an appointment with our dentist at Hello Dental. They will sit down with you and go over the specifics of the treatment, as well as use a special scanning system to determine whether you qualify for the treatment plan. If you are a good candidate for Smilelign braces in Colchester, we will devise a detailed treatment plan that will include the use of aligners that will slowly and gradually move your teeth to their optimal location in your mouth.

The digital scans of your teeth will be used in order to create the custom-made aligners that will help straighten your teeth. Smilelign uses a series of aligners, each of which is used for a specific period of time before moving to the next one in the series. The exact number of aligners needed will vary depending on how much your teeth need to move. In some situations, you may only require a few sets, while other people may need to go through the treatment process for longer.

Who is a good candidate for Smilelign?

As a general rule, patients who can have regular braces can also opt for Smilelign aligners. These aligners are ideal for treating moderately crooked, gapped and crowded teeth, as well as overbites, underbites and crossbites. However, they are not suitable for more complex dental problems.
