The Appeal of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces

We’ve been delivering effective Invisalign treatment in Bath for many years and demand for the treatment continues to rise, but exactly what are the outstanding differences from traditional braces? Invisalign treatment is a relatively new treatment in our industry, having first been introduced in 2000, whereas, traditional braces have been about for a number of decades now.

Both options hold the same objective – to align and straighten teeth – but more and more people are opting for Invisalign braces over wire braces.

How Does Invisalign Work?

With traditional braces, alignment of the teeth is a consequence of metal wire and brackets being attached. These have to be worn for an extended period of time while some will need to wear them for several years to see a set of fully aligned, straight teeth.

Invisalign aligners are full trays that are completely transparent and similar to gum shields in appearance. Made from an advanced BPA-free (bisphenol A) plastic, Invisalign plans the exact stages that your teeth will go through on their journey to fully straight alignment through computer modelling. A succession of specially formed trays is made for each of the stages.

Invisalign Appearance

An obvious benefit of Invisalign is that it’s near enough impossible to tell that someone is wearing a brace as subtle, clear or tooth-coloured braces are applied. Traditional braces, however, are much more conspicuous.

Are Invisalign Braces Hygienic and Easy to Maintain?

Trays are very low maintenance and once created, you do not need to go back to your dentist. With braces, you’ll need to go to an orthodontist for check-ups and tightening. Trays are removed for eating, meaning hygiene and cleanliness are extremely easy to monitor, while traditional braces can cause discolouration of the teeth and in some cases breakages.

Are Invisalign Braces Comfortable?

Naturally, traditional braces are going to cause discomfort due to wires rubbing a getting caught in your gums. Certain areas of the mouth will become sore throughout the process of your teeth re-aligning. You may experience slight discomfort with Invisalign, however not on the scale that you could with wire braces.

Generally, having Invisalign braces are less likely to hinder you in performing your daily routine. Eating hard or sticky foods and participating in contact sports, for example, may pose difficulties with traditional braces.

Invisalign braces or trays have one glaringly exceptional advantage over wire braces: their ability to go undetected day-to-day. However, as outlined above, choosing Invisalign treatment over traditional braces will not only benefit you appearance-wise during the alignment process, but also in terms of comfort and practicality.

Celebrities That Have Used Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign is slowly being used by more and more around the world. The reason why is simple: before, many didn’t realise you could perfect your smile without most knowing. With Invisalign, including our treatment here in Bath, that’s exactly what you can do. And it’s not only us 9-5ers who are using it; due to this incredible feat, the treatment has become a popular choice amongst many celebrities, too! Here’s who’s had the treatment!

Justin Bieber

Teen sensation Justin Bieber’s teeth used to look less than impressive. That was no secret. As his stardom grew, so did his and his agent’s want for Bieber to have that knockout smile. So he had this teeth whitened (which we offer, too!) and also got Invisalign to straighten his pearly whites. From then, he’s had one of the best smiles in Hollywood and his stardom has only risen! Perhaps without those great looking gnashers, he may not have had the bravado to pull hits like What Do You Mean out the bag. Who knows!

Serena Williams

Whilst most celebrities like to receive this treatment surreptitiously – such is the unique selling point of Invisalign, – Serena actually spoke about the treatment and praised it; advising those conscious to get Invisalign treatment simply because of how great she found it! Serena now has perhaps the most impressive smile in tennis and as tennis is a confidence game, she, like you can to, invariably improved her career by getting Invisalign!

Tom Cruise

Tom’s terrible teeth were a common topic in Hollywood once. We mean, they were really atrocious – if you haven’t ever seen the state of his smile, have a look at what he once donned. But, with services that we offer here, Tom totally transformed his smile. Invisalign treatment made him go from an actor who was in the one film one time to being one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. If he never had them fixed his career wouldn’t have had such longevity, we’re sure!

Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl rose to prominence on Grey’s Anatomy. Whilst on that show, she showed off what we would consider an 8/10 smile. Very respectable, of course. However, when it came to her wedding in 2007 she decided she needed a 10/10, knockout smile! And of course, she turned to Invisalign treatment of this. It really is a modern marvel.

Kate Middleton

Like many of these celebrities, Kate’s smile wasn’t too bad beforehand. But considering all the cameras that were going to be on her it seems she wanted a show-stealing smile rather than a slightly nice one! Indeed, reports say the Duchess of Cambridge used Invisalign in the months preceding her big day. Her smile sure did look something on the day, didn’t it? The Invisalign treatment treated her well.

There’s no denying that this could lead to a new promotion.

New Sparks

Perhaps you’re in the queue waiting for your morning coffee and listening to your favourite podcast, it makes you laugh – as it always does – resulting in you showing off those A-lister pearly whites. You catch an eye, or two. You spark up a conversation. You go on a date. No one knows what could come next.
