Among the many things that have become familiar to us during ‘the new normal’, seeing our face on a screen has become an every-day occurrence. Working from home, video quizzes with friends or just simply keeping in touch with family, we have all spent hours looking at our own faces.
One of our most noticeable features is our smile and crooked, overcrowded teeth can sometimes affect the way you feel, in some cases making you cover your mouth. Making the decision to straighten your teeth not only changes the way you look, but may also increase your confidence – particularly on those Video Calls!
If straightening your teeth is something you are considering, then Bristol Dental Specialists can start your journey to the perfect smile without you even having to visit the practice. In recent months we have risen to the new challenges - which we have all faced - to keep our patients and our staff safe, whilst delivering the highest standards of specialist dental care. Our FREE VIDEO Consultation service allows one of our Specialist Orthodontists to talk with you directly and safely. We can understand your concerns and wishes, discuss the options of teeth straightening and decide on the best course of treatment for you. We can then send you an “in-principle” digital Treatment Plan with details about the proposed treatment options, associated costs and payment options. If you wish to go ahead, we will arrange for you to visit our beautiful practice to confirm the treatment and take records before beginning your transformation.
One of the systems that our Specialist Orthodontist use for straightening teeth is Invisalign® Clear Aligners. This system offers a discreet way to straighten teeth and is ideal for both adults and teenagers. An alternative to braces, Invisalign® is a gradual method of straightening teeth using a series of custom-made clear trays called aligners. The aligners themselves are removable and therefore do not affect your lifestyle, making straightening your teeth just that little bit easier. Invisalign® can treat a wide range of orthodontic concerns, including crooked teeth, gaps, and crowded mouths.
Once we scan your teeth, we can then generate your treatment plan remotely and arrange a follow up video call to share the digital set up of your teeth; you can even watch a 3D transformation of your teeth, right in front of your eyes!
In some cases, you will not even need you to come back to the practice as we can post your aligners to you and review and talk you through treatment online. If we do need to see you, your Orthodontist will arrange a convenient appointment with you. You will see the same Specialist at each visit and with only General Dental Council registered Specialist Orthodontists working at Bristol Dental Specialists, you are in very safe hands.
If you have made the decision to find a new, straighter smile, Invisalign® may be for you. It is a discreet and non-disruptive method, with minimal visits. If however Invisalign® is not the best option for you, our specialist Orthodontists will be able to advise you on an alternative treatment.
