A bespoke teeth straightening solution
Many of our patients tell us they would love to have a straighter smile, but worry about the impact wearing braces would have on their appearance, and social and work lives. However, what people don’t realise is that there are now incredibly subtle, virtually invisable treatments available to help you have a smile you’ll be proud to show off.
As a forward-thinking practice dedicated to offering leading treatments to help patients get the smile they have always wanted, we’re proud to offer the incredible Invisalign straightening system here at The Essex Smile Centre.
These custom-made, removable aligners are clear trays that are changed every two weeks, as your teeth move in to their new position. Each aligner tray is made especially for your mouth, based on the treatment plan and final result you have discussed with your experienced dentist.
Unlike other orthodontic treatments, Invisalign retainers can also be removed for eating and cleaning, making them a convenient, easy to use system, although it is important to wear them for at least 22 hours each day.
Want to see how your smile will look after treatment? Our state of the art, iTero Scanner can track the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment, showing you how we expect your new smile to look.
At the end of your treatment you will have a beautiful, straight new smile that will allow you talk, smile and laugh with confidence. We can also offer a range of finance options designed around you and your treatment plan.
The Initial Consultation
During the initial consultation, your dentist will discuss the issues you have with your teeth and explore what kind of results you’re hoping to achieve. If Invisalign is suitable for you, a treatment plan will be mapped out with your goals in mind. The dentist will then use our state of the art iTero Scanner to take detailed pictures of your teeth, that will be sent to the Invisalign laboratories for processing. This removes the need for messy dental impressions and ensures that you always receive the best possible outcome from your Invisalign treatment.
Your Treatment Plan
The impressions of your teeth will be digitised in order for your dentist to work with a computerised 3D image of your teeth. Then, your dentist will plan your tooth movements throughout your entire treatment timeline. You’ll be able to see a virtual representation of your teeth before, during and after completion of the Invisalign process (so you can see what your smile should look like when you’re done with treatment).
Your Bespoke Aligners
Once you and your dental practitioner have agreed to the treatment plan, bespoke aligners are then custom-made for you and have to be worn for approximately two weeks before you switch to the next aligner in the series. While the number of aligners varies for each individual, a full treatment typically includes 15-29 aligners for both the upper and lower teeth which will take approximately 8-16 months depending on your individual case.
The Treatment Process
Aligners should be worn for a minimum of 22 hours day and night, except when eating, brushing or flossing teeth in order to complete your treatment in the timeline determined by you and your dentist. You’ll go in for checkups every 4-10 weeks to monitor your progress and to receive your next series of aligners. During the entire treatment process you’ll notice gradual movement and your teeth will slowly move into a beautiful even and healthy smile.

“With the hectic working life that I lead the receptionists always do their up most to find appointments that suit me and I am forever grateful for the appointment reminder phone calls that I received from them.
I must thank you and your staff for the outstanding treatment I have received, from the greeting you get the first time you walk through the door to the new smile you leave with. See you in 6 months for my routine check up!” – Howard
