Today, we’re talking about Invisalign braces, a popular choice for teeth straightening in and around Manchester. A five-star treatment we’re proud to offer at our dental practice, it’s a fantastic way to improve the appearance of your smile while correcting any concerns you have over tooth alignment. Read on to find out more about it.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a treatment that straightens your smile through removable aligners. These are created based on scans of your smile, which predict how your teeth should move over time. It’s a great alternative to fixed metal braces, as no wires or brackets are involved and it’s much more discreet.

Which treatments go with Invisalign?

Teeth whitening is one of the top ones, as it can really elevate your results. That’s because the smile will not only be beautifully uniform after Invisalign, but will also appear whiter, brighter and healthier. It’s the reason we often recommend teeth whitening after Invisalign treatment.

Composite bonding might also be an option for patients who have areas of their smile that they want to refine, for example a jagged tooth that could be nicely rounded off, or a tooth that’s cracked but otherwise functional.

Finally, crowns and veneers may be a potential treatment for patients with cracked, chipped or broken teeth, which again will need to be carried out after Invisalign treatment.

Why have teeth whitening after Invisalign?

This orthodontic treatment gently repositions your teeth, which means it’s possible that more of the surfaces are exposed after treatment. In this way, it’s therefore better to undergo teeth whitening once your teeth have been straightened, to ensure all the surfaces can be lightened.

How do I book teeth whitening?

We often suggest the treatment to those patients undergoing Invisalign as a final ‘polish’ for the smile and a way to complete your makeover. If you’ve had braces previously, or it’s been a while since you had Invisalign treatment, it’s still a great option for lifting and enhancing the appearance of your smile.
