Tthe average time of completion for metal braces is around 18 months and for some people they aren’t an easy option- even though the results can be fantastic. They can be uncomfortable, difficult to clean and difficult to eat with. This is why many clients are hesitant of traditional orthodontics when looking at options to improve their smile.
If you are looking to straighten your smile but want to avoid traditional orthodontics, then Invisalign might be the option for you. Alternatively, if there is only a small area of teeth that are crooked porcelain veneers can be used to mask the teeth.
The Invisalign process involves a series of clear (almost invisible) aligners which are entirely removable and have a similar completion time to traditional fixed braces. Invisalign uses computer technology to create your custom made aligners, each with a minor adjustment to the last. By wearing the aligner trays, your teeth are exposed to a gradual force which moves them into the ideal position.
Porcelain Veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain laminates that are bonded directly to the teeth. Veneers will allow us to close spaces, transform the size, shape, position colour and position of your teeth. We love getting as much input as possible from our clients when designing their perfect smile
This is a completely conservative way to get the smile you wish for. Before beginning your treatment, you will even have the chance to see your end results in a computer generated mock-up.
There is little pain when it comes to these treatments. Regarding Invisalign, there is some discomfort after the initial insertion of your aligner trays, this only lasts for a day or two.
Jonathan was missing front teeth, and his front canines had moved into the position where his missing teeth were supposed to be. In his early 20s, Jonathan still had some baby teeth which needed to be removed, as well as missing teeth in the back of his mouth. These missing teeth had caused his bite to become misaligned, causing further problems. As he was getting married in six months, the team at ADAP chose the best treatment options for Jonathan to achieve the smile he wanted before his big day.
