At Richmond Smiles Dental, we’re passionate about offering patients a holistic approach to dental. As a certified Invisalign provider, we are proud to offer our patients Invisalign as an alternative way to straighten crooked or gapped teeth.
Just deciding you’re ready to transform your smile is a big step. The next step is deciding the best way
to do it. See why over 5.5 million people have chosen Invisalign clear aligners.
Invisalign is virtually invisible.
This means you can always smile with confidence, as compared to traditional braces where the wires and metal brackets can be seen.
Invisalign aligners are made with SmartTrack® flexible material, making it super easy to put on and remove, unlike braces which are fixed. Now, you can enjoy your favourite food any time you want without holding back.
SmartStage® and SmartForce® technologies ensure there will only be gradual, gentle yet effective teeth movement throughout your treatment.
Unlike braces where you have to visit your doctor every 3-4 weeks, Invisalign aligners free up your schedule – with doctor visits only required approximately every 6-8 weeks.
Invisalign treatment allows you to visualise every stage of the treatment, giving you a clearer picture of the treatment duration.
Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can still floss and brush your teeth as per normal – whereas braces may make it difficult for you to clean in between metal brackets, which can result in plaque accumulation and poor oral hygiene.
Here are some common problems that Invisalign can help with.
An overbite is when your upper front teeth overlap your lower front teeth. Many people may have a little overbite.
An underbite is when the lower teeth are in front of the upper teeth when you close your jaw.
This is when you close your mouth and some of your upper teeth are sitting behind your lower teeth.
When you have extra space between two or more of your teeth, your doctor calls this spacing issues or gap teeth.
When you don’t have enough room in your jaw for your teeth to fit normally, your teeth can bunch up, overlap and twist.
You like your smile — but you really want to love it. Maybe you have a special event coming up, or you want the confidence to take on the world at work or at school. Small fixes can make a big difference
