Who is the client?
In a job where immaculate appearance is paramount, Samantha felt that her teeth and smile were affecting both her appearance and her life. She desired straighter teeth for many years, but she had been told previously at other dental practices that she would need metal braces to solve her dental problems. Working in a front-line role like Samantha’s, Samantha felt that metal braces would affect her appearance and was not an ideal or suitable option for both her job and lifestyle.
Samantha visited Dental Boutique to discuss her alternatives to metal braces, and after a consultation with us, she was pleased to discover that she was suitable for Invisalign treatment. Invisalign was the ideal solution for Samantha as Invisalign is a discreet, effective and faster solution to straighten teeth compared to traditional metal braces.
How long did it take?
Samantha’s treatment was completed in 12 months and 5 visits.
1st visit: Invisalign suitability assessment and consultation of treatment alternatives to metal braces
2nd visit: Orthodontic records and analysis, preview of her final result and tailored treatment to suit her needs
3rd visit: First Invisalign “braces” goes on with teeth coloured “glues” placed on her teeth temporarily
4th visit: Changing Invisalign braces every 1-2 weeks from home, monitored remotely by Dental Boutique using advanced technology and appointment at Dental Boutique every 6-10 weeks
5th visit: Removal of temporary glue and final retainers given to maintain straightness of teeth for life
Since completing her Invisalign treatment at Dental Boutique, Samantha told us that people would comment on how beautiful her teeth look and think she has “fake teeth” – but they are all real!
