Belfast Bride’s happy-ever-after
This bride-to-be popped into Creative Smiles to ask us about creating the perfect smile in time for her wedding.
We used Invisalign discreet removable aligners to straighten and close gaps before the big day, with cosmetic bonding and whitening to complete.
The results speak for themselves – a smile worthy of a white wedding and stunning photographs to cherish forever.
What does treatment involve?
Upon initial examination, Mark will need to ascertain whether Invisalign treatment is suitable for you. This will depend on the severity of each individual case. If Invisalign is deemed inappropriate for your particular case then Mark will be able to discuss other alternative orthodontic treatments available. However, if you are given the thumbs up for treatment then a treatment plan will be created and scans will be taken. Then, Invisalign in the United States will create the aligners before delivering your Invisalign to Belfast for fitting.
Invisalign Tech in Belfast
Using the most recent technological advances in 3D computer technology, the impressions and instructions as sent by Mark will be carefully translated at the Invisalign dental laboratory into a sequence of precisely specially made aligners. Each aligner will need to be worn in the sequence as prescribed by Mark. After two weeks of wearing an aligner it will be time to move onto the next one, in order for your teeth to move accurately and steadily. As time goes by, millimetre by millimetre, you will achieve the intended result and you can bask in the glory of your straighter teeth.
Can the aligners be removed?
You can remove your Invisalign aligners during treatment and can therefore take pleasure in an assortment of your favourite foods. This also makes the task of maintaining oral hygiene much simpler. However, Mark and our other experienced dental staff do recommend that you wear each aligner for 22 hours each day in order to achieve the best results.
"I was nervous about visiting the dentist but now I don’t give it a second though."
“Thank you so much for my new smile! As a nervous patient I never thought it would be possible to have my teeth straightened and I am over the moon with the results. I was very self-conscious about my teeth and would have laughed with my hand over my mouth, I now feel confident with my smile and am a lot happier with my appearance. Invisalign was a great choice for me at 28 as I didn’t feel comfortable with traditional braces. The process was pain free and the 11 months flew by! Before coming to Creative Smiles I was nervous about visiting the dentist but now I don’t give it a second thought. Thank you for making me feel so at ease and making the whole process enjoyable”Photograph courtesy of Mark Barnes Photography Belfast Read more Testimonials
