Why did I choose Invisalign? My experience by Sally

Sally has recently completed a course of Invisalign with us, and is kindly sharing her story with us.

Why did you want your teeth straightened Sally?
I have always had a crooked smile, and with time my one front tooth became noticeably shorter through wear. I hated seeing photos of myself and would always avoid cameras wherever possible. Being in my 50s I’d assumed that I was too old for any form of teeth straightening and was resigned to keeping my crooked smile.

What made you choose Invisalign?
When Steven Neal asked me whether I’d thought about teeth straightening I was surprised that there might be a viable solution, even for someone of my age! Having several dental implants a conventional metal brace was not an option, so I was delighted to hear that I could have a barely visible brace called Invisalign which would safely straighten my teeth without damaging my implants.

Why did you choose Cotteswold House?
I have been been with Cotteswold House for about 30 years and have always been happy with the professional service that they provide, so choosing them for my Invisalign was an easy decision.

How do you feel about your teeth now?
Since finishing my Invisalign treatment and associated minor cosmetic work, I have the smile that I have always wanted. Straight, even teeth and a smile that I am now happy to have in any photograph!

Jess’s Six Month Smiles Straight Teeth Wedding Journey



Patients of Cotteswold House Dental Care will no doubt recognise Jess from their visits to the practice in Gloucester. You will also see what a beautiful radiant smile she now has after undertaking teeth straightening, or orthodontic treatment using the Six Month Smiles teeth straightening system. Jess has kindly agreed to share with us her story and her beautiful wedding photos. We hope you enjoy her story just as much as we did!

Why did you want your teeth straightening Jess?
“I had always been conscious of my teeth, especially working in a dental practice. I’d “put up” with my narrow, crooked smile for such a long time but it wasn’t until my, now Husband, popped the question on Christmas Eve in 2012. I really didn’t want to look back through my Wedding album and regret not having them straightened. It still took me a further few months to pluck up the courage and ask for treatment as I was so nervous that it might be painful. Turns out I was very wrong!”

Why did you chose 6MS Jess?
“Obviously working in a dental practice was a big advantage for me as it meant I didn’t need to travel out of Gloucester to have my teeth straightened. We had been treating patients with the six month smiles (6MS) system for a few months and it all seemed pretty straight forward, however I still felt I didn’t know too much about the treatment. My main worry (aside from it hurting) was how long it would take as my Wedding day was slowly creeping closer. Stephen Waters reassured all would be done by September which was great news for me. I booked myself in and got started.”

How did it impact on your everyday life Jess?
“At first I felt they were really noticeable as my lips seemed to feel more puffed out and I spoke a bit funny. Eating wasn’t easy but it didn’t take me long to get used to things. Many people knew that there was something different about me but couldn’t put their finger on it. It wasn’t until I’d pull a cheesy grin to show off the braces. I became quite proud of them in the end and often smiled for photos with my teeth and braces showing… something I’d not done before! I even had to have a tooth extracted during my treatment, but was still happy to show off the little gap!”

jess-patient-coordinator-cotteswold-dental-gloucester“During my treatment, the dentists would often use me as a visual aid to show patients how the braces looked and how I felt the treatment was going personally. It was during this time that I felt we really needed something more for our patients. I was asked so many questions and it felt patients were more inclined to ask me things over the dentists, which was a nice feeling. I felt sometimes I really made a difference and helped them make a decision on whether to go for the 6MS treatment or not. The fact that I was going through it/had been through it meant I could really be honest with the patients.”

How does Jess feel now?
“I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of my treatment. Not only has it given me the confidence to smile (and wonderful Wedding photos!) but it has given me a new role at Cotteswold House.” “I have recently taken on the role of Patient Coordinator. This is a position that allows me to speak daily to our patients about treatments we offer; cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, dental implants, and also more day to day dentistry such as fillings, extractions and crowns. I also welcome all of our new patients to the practice and I’m always on hand to chat at any point if a patient needs to. It was only by having treatment myself that I was able to put myself in patient’s shoes.”

Jess was a slightly more complex case than usual for Six Month Smiles, hence taking a little longer at 11 months. Most cases tend to take between five and nine months.

“You only have to look at Jessica’s beautiful wedding photos to see what a difference the Six Month Smiles teeth straightening system has made to her smile” said Stephen.

BRACE YOURSELF AND SAVE £270 WITH INVISALIGN!

If you’ve ever considered braces but don’t fancy the idea of the traditional “train track” look, then Invisalign by our friendly team of dentists at Cotteswold House Dental Care, Gloucester, is the clear solution!

The Invisalign system is a series of clear, removable positioners that are changed every few weeks to move the teeth into a desired position.

Invisible Braces in Gloucester

Most crowding can be resolved using Invisalign in a short period, sometimes as short as seven weeks. More complex cases may take longer and this obviously varies from person to person.

Not only is Invisalign a great way of moving teeth discreetly, it also has other benefits such as less time in the dental chair, the teeth are easier to keep clean as the positioners can be removed and you also have the added option of whitening the teeth, which can be done using the positioners. Choosing Invisalign also means that you are doing no damage to the teeth to get the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.

Once you have completed your Invisalign journey, we advise that a retainer is worn to keep the teeth exactly where you’d like them! This can be in the form of a removable retainer, a bit like the invisalign positioners, or with a small, fixed retainer that is bonded to the back of the teeth and hidden from sight.

To find out more, please book a free consultation with our treatment co-odinator.
