What is Invisalign Treatment?
In this age of perfect pearly whites on models and celebrities, those with less-than-perfect teeth can feel self-conscious and second-rate. Whether you didn’t have braces as a child and now long for straighter teeth, or whether an accident as an adult has left you misaligned, the thought of highly visible, old-fashioned braces – as an image-conscious teen or professional adult in particular – may fill you with dread.
But now there is another way you can achieve that perfect smile, without the indignity of traditional braces. Along with other dental services, we also provide Invisalign in Dubai, a discreet – almost invisible – orthodontic treatment, which means you can get on with your life without embarrassment, whilst achieving the smile of your dreams.
Results and Benefits
The Invisalign boasts multiple benefits over rival treatments, namely:
Discreet: Invisalign’s clear plastic design enables you to remain confident with your smile even when undergoing treatment to straighten your teeth.
Comfortable: Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign will not irritate mouths and gums, and as they are not attached to your teeth permanently, they are far less painful.
Convenient: The removable aligners can be taken out when eating, or for short-term special occasions when you may wish to showcase your natural smile.
Hygienic: The removable feature also ensures no trapped food remains in the aligners and allows regular brushing and flossing to continue.
Effective: Teeth will begin to realign immediately, with noticeable improvements continuing week by week.
Transparent: Unlike other brands of aligners, they are transparent and no one will be able to see them.
Safety: These aligners are made from patented SmartTrack material, which is more comfortable and provides a better fit. Moreover, this material is hygienic and free of health risks.
