There are several reasons teeth become misaligned. Genetics, trauma, infection, and prolonged thumb sucking are all common causes.
Whatever has led to your teeth becoming overcrowded, gappy, or crooked, the outcome is the same—a smile you feel self-conscious about and a lifetime of potential dental issues.
Invisalign® could change all this. This subtle and versatile treatment is one of the most popular ways to straighten teeth.
At The CDC, we’re Invisalign® Diamond Apex Providers. This makes us the number one practice in the Northeast and within the top 1% of dentists in Europe providing this treatment today!
Plus, we’re the region’s first clinic to host an Invisalign® zone where you can learn all about this revolutionary treatment and take a peak into the future at what Invisalign® could do for your smile.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
Invisalign® is a discreet and comfortable transparent aligner system that straightens teeth without impacting your life. Much like other orthodontic treatments, Invisalign® aligners exert a constant, gentle force across your teeth to straighten them slowly. The beauty of Invisalign® is that the aligners are translucent and removable. This means they’re barely visible— and you can take them out to eat!
Every Invisalign® treatment is bespoke. We’ll take digital scans of your smile, plan your treatment, and then have custom aligners produced just for you!
Your treatment will involve multiple stages. At every step, you’ll get a new aligner. Although each new aligner might look the same as the last, the slight differences make a big impact over time. Within a few months, you’ll start to see a smile you’ll love.
Invisalign® is a versatile treatment for mild to moderate issues. It can:
- Reduce overcrowding
- Straighten crooked teeth
- Close gaps in your smile
- Fix bite issues like overbite, crossbite, underbite, open bite, and more
The Benefits of Invisalign®
One of the things some patients find off-putting about orthodontic treatments is how obvious they are. Traditional braces are often metal and use brackets and wires attached to the front of the teeth, which makes some people feel self-conscious about smiling.
The clarity of Invisalign® means that your aligners will often go unnoticed by others, so you can feel good about smiling throughout your entire treatment.
Lightweight and Comfortable
Invisalign® is made from a patented medical-grade plastic called SmartTrack. After wearing the smooth, lightweight aligners for a while, you may even forget it’s in. Invisalign® aligners are so comfortable you can even sleep wearing them.
Mealtimes are not a problem with Invisalign®. You won’t need to worry about eating the right thing, and food won’t get trapped in your aligner. In addition, your Invisalign® aligner is removable, so you can take it out when you eat. This also makes brushing your teeth and keeping your aligner clean easier.
A Smile You Can
Feel Good About
If you’ve spent a long time feeling negative about your smile, your confidence levels will quickly rise when you see the changes Invisalign® brings. For many, this self-esteem boost is a game-changer!
Improved Oral Health
Crooked, crowded, and gappy teeth are often difficult to clean, making them prone to tooth decay. In addition, the position of your teeth can affect your jaw and cause problems while chewing. This could lead to pain that spreads from the jaw to the face, head, and neck. Straightening your teeth improves the outlook for your oral health.
No Adjustments Needed
Unlike fixed braces, we don’t need to adjust your appliance. This reduces the frequency and length of dental appointments needed.
Before starting a treatment that takes months or more, it’s sometimes hard to envisage the outcome. That’s not the case with Invisalign®. During your initial assessment, we’ll take digital scans of your teeth and use powerful planning software to plot the entire course of your treatment.
The software will create the step-by-step alignment process and generate an accurate image of how your smile will look after you have completed your treatment.
It’s Never Too Late
Misaligned teeth are often a problem for people of all ages. Due to its discretion and convenience, Invisalign® is just as popular with adults as it is with teenagers. It’s so subtle, someone you know could be having treatment, and you wouldn’t even know!
Talk of the Tyne
Don’t just take our word for it listen to what our patients have to say about The CDC service.
Andy says crooked teeth made him reluctant to smile. He says treatment with Invisalign® from The CDC was life-changing.
Make All the
Elena loved her smile, but a few small gaps and other minor niggles were letting the side down. The CDC achieved these stunning results with Invisalign® and whitening.
Jayne had a misaligned bite—which meant that any cosmetic dental work would always be prone to chipping and wear. Invisalign® from The CDC was the first step on Jayne’s journey to smile perfection.
Before & After
The Invisalign® Journey
Every Invisalign® treatment starts with an initial consultation. Then, we’ll take digital scans and use innovative software to calculate the precise tooth movement. At this stage, we can show you an image of your future smile so you can decide whether Invisalign® is right for you.
Next, the lab will create your bespoke aligners. You will then wear your aligner for at least 22 hours each day. Every two weeks, we will replace your aligner. Although we don’t need to adjust your aligner, we will check your treatment progress from time to time.
It’s essential to maintain high standards of oral hygiene during your treatment. In addition to thorough brushing, you should also clean your aligner twice daily.
The exact duration of your treatment will vary depending on the amount each tooth must move. Once Invisalign® has worked its magic, you’ll need to wear a retainer to preserve the results.
