If you are reluctant to talk or smile in public without hiding your teeth then tooth straightening could give you back some social confidence.
If you are reluctant to talk or smile in public without hiding your teeth due to noticeably crooked, crowded, gappy or protruding teeth, then a VIDA dentist may consider whether tooth straightening could give you back some social confidence. Straighter teeth may help you improve your gum health and cleaning by simplifying your cleaning routine. VIDA dentists are increasingly asked for straightening options for health reasons rather than as a cosmetic treatment.
The popularity of discreet adult teeth alignment treatments are growing rapidly, largely because they improve self confidence during and after treatment in patients who are unhappy with their appearance.
We offer a range of orthodontic treatments to reposition misaligned, twisted or crooked teeth. We know when to refer to a Specialist orthodontist as some cases require more complex work, but you can be assured you will always be presented with your full options and have time to talk through what it is you want to achieve. At VIDA, all advice is bespoke to you.
At VIDA many patients mostly choose almost invisible brace systems such as Invisalign. These systems are a discreet alternative to fixed wires and brackets and this natural looking approach fits with the VIDA ethos of natural looking dental treatment.
A whitening and Invisalign story…
A lovely young patient of ours came to us less than a year ahead of her Wedding Day. We undertook some gentle straightening, whitening and recontouring of her teeth to bring a more harmonious appearance to her smile and improve an already stunning appearance.
The great news is that she was ready in time for her big day and her smilemakover requires minimal maintenance in future: just top-up whitening gels, some maintenance of her composite recontouring fillings, and retainers to keep her teeth in their straight positions.
With our Invisalign treatments you can see a movie of how the treatment is likely to progress, also showing you a simulation of the likely final result. We may email a copy of this to you to view in the privacy of your own home, after the VIDA dentist has talked you through the movie one-on-one and you’ve had time to ask questions.
At VIDA we keep pricing simple and can tell you which level of investment you need to make based on how many Invisalign aligners you will need- this is easily calculated from the treatment movie. We can often give you an idea of likely level when we meet you for a Complimentary Consultation. While Invisalign is available for under £1000, very few patients fall into this level of care so we prefer to quote you on a bespoke basis so you have accurate information on which to base important decisions. At VIDA we also tell you upfront if you need a contingency fund, what that might be for, and what we think you will need to budget for on an ongoing maintenance basis (for retainers).
With Invisalign and other removable braces you can remove the braces so your daily cleaning routine is not complicated by your decision to straighten your teeth. You also remove the braces for eating, which makes cleaning your brace much easier too!
In a social situation or conversation it would be very difficult indeed to spot somebody wearing our Invisalign braces. Many celebrities on TV choose Invisalign for this reason.
Many VIDA patients work in customer-facing roles, or travel with their work, and find Invisalign compatible with that lifestyle. Furthermore, our appointments can be scheduled on Saturdays so no time is required away from work and you may only need to see us every 4- 6 weeks depending on your treatment plan.
