Millions of people suffer from having crooked teeth that they would like to have corrected. A straight, attractive smile can make you feel happier and more confident. Invisalign® aligners can correct a wide range of orthodontic concerns and help you achieve the smile you have always wanted. The traditional route to correcting issues such as crooked teeth, gaps and crowded mouths has been with visible fixed braces. However, Invisalign® is clear, removable and comfortable, so it won’t interfere with your appearance or your life.
Your first visit with us will be a free consultation with our Treatment Co-Ordinator & our Invisalign® Platinum Provider Gareth Riley who will discuss with you how you feel about your smile & your new smile expectations. He will advise you on the tooth straightening options we have and which product best suits your needs.
He will scan your teeth using some very clever technology called the iTero Element Scanner which will show you an illustration of how your teeth could look after a course of tooth straightening treatment. How clever is that? We can also confirm at this appointment the approximate cost and roughly how long your treatment will take.
Should you decide to go ahead with a new Invisalign smile journey with us we will complete a full dental health examination to ensure you have optimum oral health before we start your treatment. We will then prepare a computer generated 3D animation of your proposed treatment. This will illustrate where your teeth are now and how we will design your new straight smile using the Invisalign aligners.
Once you are happy with the proposed treatment your very own sets of bespoke Invisalign® aligners will be made just for you.
Your new Invisalign journey starts here. Book a free consultation to find out more.
Life continues as normal while wearing Invisalign – from brushing and flossing as normal to eating whatever you like!
Digital Impressions At The Riley Dental Studio
We are one of the few practices in the Stoke on Trent/Staffordshire area to use an iTero® intra oral scanner.
The scanner is used to map out the mouth in preparation for improvements in the bite and smile. In order to do this the scanner gathers the information needed that indicates the exact position and location of the teeth and gums. With the iTero scanner we can illustrate to you how your teeth look now and how they could look if you had them corrected with Invisalign aligners. How clever is that?
SEE YOUR NEW, STRAIGHTER SMILE EVEN BEFORE YOU START YOUR TREATMENT!
The iTero® scanner works by using digital technology to produce a 3D diagram of the mouth and this becomes the blueprint by which the Invisalign aligners will be made. The scan is much more precise than what is normally achieved with traditional impressions.
Using the digital impressions process with the iTero is fast and comfortable and is a dramatic improvement over the traditional more uncomfortable & messy method. The digital scan is sent electronically to Align Technologies – this transmission is instant and means the process of producing your ClinCheck or making your aligners is much quicker, meaning that you will be on your way to a straighter, more confident smile before you know it!
You’ll wear each clear and comfortable Invisalign aligner for one or two weeks before moving on to the next set in your series of aligners. As each is slightly different from the last, they will move your teeth gradually & gently into the desired position. During treatment you will visit us periodically, usually every 6 – 8 weeks so we can monitor your progress do any adjustments if necessary and provide you with your next set of aligners. More about Invisalign
‘I’ve hated my smile for so long but I finally decided to do something about it. Gareth & the team have been so helpful from initial consultation to the end result. Looking back I realise just how much my teeth had moved, not helped by a missing canine. Gareth certainly had his work cut out and I’m so pleased with the result. Gareth & Invisalign have restored my smile & my confidence!’
‘I would put such effort in to never showing my teeth when I smiled. I checked and you’d struggle to find a picture of me full on smiling before embarking on Invisalign. The point being, my teeth were my biggest insecurity and I’ve gained so much confidence since, to the point I now forget how upset I used to get about them. I don’t have a mad panic about showing any sort of happy emotion anymore, it’s not a thought. Just shows what good hands I was in when going through this’
‘I started the enquiry process of Invisalign with great trepidation. I had terrible anxiety over visiting the dentist after receiving poor treatment in the past. Gareth was so friendly and explained the whole process in great detail showing me an image of what my teeth could look like. The level of detail Gareth went in to and the information pack provided convinced me he was head and shoulders above the rest of the Invisalign practices I had visited. I now know that I really did make the right decision.
Gareth was very upfront with me and advised that because of the over rotation in my front teeth it would take time to resolve. Every single visit I have been serviced by such a wonderful team. Meg on reception couldn’t be more helpful when working out appointments for me around work. Stacey and Sam were always so gentle when adding or taking off my attachments. I can hand on heart say that this has been a completely pain free process.
I can’t thank the whole team enough for their persistence to offer the most incredible attention to detail and present me with the most wonderful smile at the end.
Myself and my wife have had Invisalign and we have both completed the process with all the love and care of the magnificent team at The Riley Dental Studio.
Everyone is just so customer focussed and very friendly.
We were a little concerned about the process but trust me it wasn’t a problem and the time went so quickly and now we have straight teeth forever.
Thanks Super Gareth & Team.
