The quick and easy answer is: NO. You do not need to use the traditional metal braces to straighten your teeth. Dental and orthodontic procedures have since evolved and those ugly and uncomfortable train tracks are SO LAST YEAR.
Our new tele-dentistry technology is used to create your invisible aligners, the new FETCH dental appliances of the 21st Century. This process also means there is either little to no time spent in waiting rooms, you can undergo treatment from your own bed and under the care of our licensed dentists & dental team.
You receive all of your aligners in one neat box, you do not have to wait for the next shipment and not a waiting room in sight. You can read the benefits of invisible aligners over metal braces here.
How you can straighten your teeth without traditional metal braces?
1. Impress us with your teeth.
We need to generate a 3D model of your teeth, which can be created using a impression kit which you can use at home or you can visit our Smile Clinic to capture your impressions via a scan. This information is then sent to our dentist and dental teams, it is then determined whether you are suitable for the treatment.
2. Why braces are not needed to straighten teeth.
When you are deemed suitable for the treatment, you will be sent your Treatment Plan, 7 - 10 days after your impressions have been received. This is basically a 3D preview of how your smile is going to transform over the coming months. Once you accept the Treatment Plan, your aligners are put into production and within a month you will receive all of your invisible aligners, right on your doorstep. You will be under constant remote supervision by our dentists and dental team - via email, chat and phone.
3. Retain your new smile with our invisible retainers.
After you have followed your treatment plan; wearing your invisible aligners 22 hours a day, and changing the aligners every 2 weeks etc. your new #SmileGoal will have been met. But bear in mind that some people may need refinements - especially if they have not firmly stuck to their routine. But when the desired smile transformation is met you are provided with a FREE retainer worth £149 / € 149.
Your invisible aligners treatment is faster, less painful and easier on your budget than that of the traditional metal braces. You can read the benefits of buying invisible aligners online here.
