Many patients are unhappy and embarrassed about their teeth because they are crooked, crowded or gappy. When most people think about orthodontics and braces, they imagine traditional metal braces, which are very obvious and can cause further self-consciousness, as well as taking a long time for treatment to complete.
At Sandown Dental we offer a number of solutions which can discreetly straighten your teeth in a much shorter timeframe including Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles®. We have considerable experience in treating cosmetic orthodontic problems and offer a free consultation to those interested.
Only Invisalign clear aligners use SmartTrack® material to shape your smile with such precision, comfort and predictability. Each set of aligners is custom-made using state-of-the-art technology, moving your teeth gently and efficiently.
- Once your dentist has confirmed that you are eligible for treatment, they will take photos, X-rays and a dental impression of your teeth. These records will be used to create a ClinCheck® 3D treatment plan, just for you, so you'll be able to see what your new smile is predicted to look like before treatment even begins.
- After being custom-made, you'll receive a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home - on average every 1-2 weeks.
- You'll visit your dentist every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. After finishing your treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain your new smile.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is a discreet cosmetic orthodontic solution, using clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires that can successfully treat a wide variety of orthodontic complaints, including spacing between teeth, crooked or rotated teeth, and crowding or symmetry problems.
The treatment is more gentle than conventional braces because it uses lower force than other orthodontic treatments and focuses on the cosmetic aspect of your teeth - those that show when you smile
