Smiley faces and selfie sticks: getting a smile you love with Invisalign in Cornwall

Have you ever looked at people’s selfie sticks and thought, “don’t point that near me!”? Have you cringed at the thought of smiling ecstatically into the lens of a camera because you feel self-conscious about your misaligned teeth? At Archway Dental Surgery, we believe that having realigned teeth could help you to feel happier about the appearance of your smile. With Invisalign in Cornwall, getting an improved smile is discreet, convenient and effective – we just can’t promise you’ll ever love a selfie stick!


What is Invisalign in Cornwall?

Invisalign in Cornwall comprises plastic aligners which are worn over the teeth like a gumshield. It is streamlined and more comfortable as the aligners are made bespoke for your mouth thanks to iTero technology. This digital scan gets the measurements for your aligners to be manufactured and it also generates a 3D animation of what your teeth will look like after treatment before you get started!

As you wear your aligners, they apply pressure to the teeth to gently push them into the desired position. Each week, you will need to switch to a new aligner and we will provide you with 6 weeks’ worth of aligners to take home with you at each checkup that you have with us. Within approximately 6 to 18 months, you should have the smile you’ll love!

What are the benefits of choosing Invisalign?

Invisalign is a convenient and discreet treatment. When you are wearing the aligners, nobody else should realise that you have anything in your mouth because the plastic is transparent and only your teeth would be seen. You can also remove the aligners for up to 2 hours a day, which means you can have a little break when you need to or when you want to play sports, for example. You can also take them out at mealtimes, and you won’t have to change your diet in any way. You also won’t need to clean the aligners after eating, so there won’t be any mess when you’re out having lunch with friends or family!

Another benefit of Invisalign is that you won’t have to worry about keeping up your normal oral hygiene routine. By removing the aligners when you want to brush and floss, you can continue to do so as normal. As your teeth become more aligned, the cleaning process should just get easier as well, as your teeth will be where they are meant to be without obstructing each other if they were crossed, for example.

How do I get Invisalign?
