It is all too common that people are unhappy with the way their teeth look, and how it affects the way people view them. It has been proven that a person’s smile is one of the first things that is noticed by others when they initially meet them – and can play a significant role in the formation of their opinion about them. A smile is one of our most valuable assets, and something which we all – hopefully – use on a daily basis to help us get through life.

People who hide their smiles away out of shame or embarrassment about the way they look, should call upon Spa Dental Sydney CBD to help them make a positive, constructive change to their demeanor and to improve their lives.
What treatment is best for me?
There are literally countless different types of cosmetic dentistry treatment options out there. Each procedure aims to combat a specific cosmetic issue or problem that a patient may have, such as teeth which are stained or marked, or to address teeth which are misaligned, crooked, or have gaps between them. As each procedure has been designed to combat one or more specific dental issues, the best approach for anyone who is seeking to find out which procedure would be best suited to them, would be to stop by a cosmetic dental practice they trust, and have a conversation with a dentist. This initial conversation will get the ball rolling, as the patient can detail to the practitioner the exact specifics of what it is about their smile they are dissatisfied with, and how it could possibly be improved through cosmetic treatment. With this information, the dental practitioner can then begin to form a detailed treatment plan that is moulded to suit the needs of the patient.
Invisalign dental aligners
One of the most popular forms of cosmetic treatment for correcting orthodontic alignment, is the Invisalign retainer method. This is a transparent alternative to conventional orthodontic braces. A large percentage of adult patients who suffer from misaligned or crooked teeth, refrain from seeking out aid or treatment from their orthodontist, as they are concerned about the impact that the treatment will have on the way that they look. The reality however, is that if they were to take the first leap and speak to a cosmetic orthodontist or dentist, then they would be informed that they do actually have an alternative, discreet, cosmetic treatment available. Invisalign works by only using a retainer – in place of fused dental brackets or wires – to gently move the patient’s teeth together by the use of pressure points that are built inside it. Every installation of Invisalign is an entirely tailored, unique process. This is because every retainer is made by using a digital impression of the interior of a patient’s mouth. Through the use of an iTero scanner, a perfectly accurate 3D rendering of the patient’s teeth can be made – from which the retainers are built. As the retainers are transparent, and made to fit exactly over a patient’s teeth, when they are worn they become almost completely invisible.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
