We offer some excellent discreet and short term options for people with moderate crowding who would prefer to look their best during treatment, which are particularly popular with people working in public facing roles.
Invisalign is a well known removable aligner system that can fix mild to moderate cases of misalignment. The patient is given a series of clear gumshield-like appliances to wear and change every two weeks.
A great deal of preparatory work goes into orthodontic treatment, and this begins at the initial consultation where we will produce a three dimensional scan of your mouth and begin looking at viable options to deliver your vision. Read more
Part of our responsibility is to leave your teeth in a stable position at the end of treatment, protecting you from the risk of a relapse and the need for further treatment.
This is important for a number of reasons, not least because of the time and money implications, but also because unstable teeth are in far greater danger of being permanently damaged over time as they come into contact awkwardly with other teeth and lose enamel.
When we recommend a type of treatment to you therefore, it is offered as a way of providing a long term and stable solution to misalignment, not just a short term cosmetic fix.
At Portmore we don’t offer our patients a one size fits all solution. Your dentist will carefully examine your teeth, and discuss your aims and priorities before helping you decide which type of orthodontic treatment is best for you. We offer the Invisalign and Six Month Smiles systems to choose from, and may recommend one over the other depending on your case.
