As we have learnt from the story of the tortoise and the hare, it can sometimes pay to take your time in order to get the best result in the end.
The quickest way to a great looking smile is the veneers route, which is great if you want to look your best in a very short time, perhaps for a wedding or graduation, but this quick-fix comes with a lifetime of care and maintenance and veneers need to be replaced, on average, every ten years.
More and more young people are instead turning to aligners as their chosen route to the smile of their dreams. A 2018 One-Poll survey of 1,000 16-to-30-year olds found a third of those who had chosen veneers would have chosen a less drastic option if given the opportunity.
If your main concern is the appearance of your front teeth and you’ve no problem with your bite or jaw joints, short-term orthodontic treatment with aligners can often provide an effective cosmetic solution.
Aligners work over several months to achieve the desired results, however movements happen from day one and provide a natural result without the need to remove tooth structure.
Here at Zental we are excited to be able to offer you the Invisalign™ system for straightening teeth without the use of conventional braces. Invisalign, which recently entered youth culture with a reference in the lyrics of the 17-year-old rising music star Billie Eilish’s latest album, is also highly popular with our older patients too!
The system works by repositioning teeth little by little, using a series of custom-made transparent plastic ‘aligners’. They are virtually undetectable, easy to use, comfortable to wear, and correct the alignment of the teeth in as little as a few months.
We offer a haven of tranquillity, thoughtfully designed to stimulate the senses and complemented by state-of-the-art technology that makes your experience calm, relaxing and ultimately re-energising.LOCATE A ZENTAL PRACTICE
