Clearly Confident Invisible Braces

With celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Gwen Stefani and Nicholas Cage spotted sporting braces; we’re asking whether attitudes towards dental braces are changing. Nowadays, wearing braces no longer carries the stigma it used to and orthodontic idols such as pop singer Estelle show us that braces can be cool at any age. With even the coolest of celebrities, including Radio 1 DJ’s Tim Westwood and Nick Grimshaw discussing wearing braces, ‘putting your teeth in prison’ or ‘grills’ is now more than ever seen as a fashion accessory.

Once seen as the geekiest of accessories, large, unattractive braces were often referred to as ‘train tracks’, with many a wearer cruelly taunted as a ‘metal mouth’. Nowadays braces are no longer worn solely by children and teenagers as more and more adults are choosing to achieve the smile of their dreams using new teeth straightening and aligning technology.

The availability of white and invisible braces has transformed perceptions and attitudes. Invisalign are clear braces used to treat a number of dental problems, including misaligned or crooked teeth, overcrowding and gaps between teeth. Invisalign treatment employs custom made invisible braces alongside advanced computerised technology to straighten and realign your teeth without the need to wear a metal or fixed brace. The ‘aligners’ or straighteners are comfortable, painless to wear and virtually invisible. They gradually move your teeth into the required position in order to achieve a straight and beautiful smile

Invisalign has many benefits compared with Metal Braces. They are:

  • Custom manufactured using computer technology allowing for the best fit and a more predictable result in achieving straighter teeth
  • Lack of metal and the smooth material they are made from means more comfort and no rubbing or pain on the gums and teeth
  • Invisalign aligners can be removed when you eat or drink which means you aren’t restricted to ceratin foods
  • Invisalign aligners can be removed when you brush or floss your teeth-this means food doesn’t get trapped in your braces (as it sometimes can in metal ones) leading to less likelihood of dental decay and poor oral health
  • Treatment time is reduced with Invisalign compared with conventional metal braces

Cosmetic White Smiles in Derby are pleased to present a special offer on Invisalign treatment which includes free consultation and free tray whitening. Finance options, including interest free credit, are also available.
