Craigshill Dental Centre.
Whilst we are committed to the NHS we are also aware that the NHS does not meet the needs of all patients. For this reason we also offer a dental plan (from £14 monthly). This entitles you to two dental examinations and two hygiene visits per year, as well as 20% off all treatment which will be provided under a private basis.
You will also be treated as a priority should you need to be seen between visits. Signing up for our dental plan also entitles you to dental insurance, which covers you for expensive dental bills whilst elsewhere in the UK or overseas.
Private services that we provide include:
- Cosmetic dentistry all aspects of crowns, bridges and veneers
- Botox and facial rejuvenation
- Tooth Whitening
- Private Dentures
Invisalign offers a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Invisalign works by using a series of clear and comfortable aligners that no one will be able to tell you’re wearing. They’re barely visible on your teeth and removable for when you want to eat and brush your teeth.
How does Invisalign work?
Using the innovative Align Technology together with impressions of your teeth, a series of custom-made aligners will be produced for you. These aligners are replaced every one to two weeks by the next set in the sequence thus slowly helping to move your teeth into the desired position.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t have any metal parts which can rub and irritate the mouth. The aligners are made from a clear, strong medical grade plastic which sits around the teeth.
Benefits of straightening your teeth
- By straightening your teeth you can dramatically improve the attractiveness of your smile and therefore your confidence. This in turn can increase your social and career success!
- Well aligned teeth are also a lot easier to clean, this reduces the risk of cavities forming and gum disease.
- Teeth straightening can also help improve dental function. By aligning the teeth, the forces exerced on them when you chew and talk are balanced, resulting in better long term health of your teeth, gums and jaw.
Why choose Ivisalign?
The Invisalign system is ideal for anyone with a lifestyle that wouldn’t suit traditional metal braces. They’re definitely the treatment to choose if you have a busy social life, a professional role that puts you in the spotlight, or are simply image conscious because they’re almost invisible, and you are able to remove them for eating and cleaning your teeth.
Is everyone suitable for Invisalign?
Designed for the front ‘smiling’ teeth, Invisalign may not be appropriate if you have more extensive orthodontic requirements. If, for example, there are deeper problems concerning bite and function, your dentist may recommend an alternative treatment.
What’s involved in the Invisalign treatment?
If your dentist agrees that you’re suitable for Invisalign, you’ll begin with a free consultation during which you’ll be able to see a 3D time-lapse image of your teeth before, during and after treatment. We’ll take dental impressions, which will be sent to a lab so that your bespoke Invisalign retainers can be crafted. Then you’ll wear the retainers for the prescribed amount of time, returning for reviews once a month until your treatment is complete.
How quickly will I see results?
This of course depends on your individual case, but typical treatment times are around six to nine months. We’ll likely fit a permanent retainer behind your teeth after treatment to maintain the results.
If you are looking for a tooth straightening system that is virtually invisible yet highly effective then Invisalign® invisible braces could be the perfect option for you.
