Invisalign: Straighter Teeth On A Student Budget

Invisalign: Straighter Teeth On A Student Budget

invisalign for students

Starting university is an exciting time for students all across the UK each September. As we know though, university isn’t just a time for heads in books and studying. It’s a time for meeting those who will end up pals for life. From the day you move into dorms, the folk sharing with you will either end up your best friends or your worst enemies!

That in mind, first impressions are everything. Nothing gives a better first impression than a shiny straight white smile. When we first meet someone, we are naturally drawn to the smile. It’s a human instinct. Studies indicate we make a judgement on whether or not we trust a person within the first six seconds of meeting them, often by looking at the smile alone. This is where Invisalign comes in handy.

Invisalign Treatment in Cardiff.

With a healthy student loan in the bank, why not treat yourself to the game changing treatment that is Invisalign. Getting straighter teeth doesn’t have to involve traditional metal train track braces. Invisalign is a discreet straightening system which straightens the teeth using clear aligners designed to make an effective difference to your smile. Following on from a free consultation with one of our dentists, you will be given a new set of aligners every two weeks. Each set of aligners will be adjusted slightly to help you get closer to reaching your dream smile. The aligners are removable so you can take them out whenever, making brushing, flossing and eating a lot easier.

One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign over other straightening systems is the incredible 3D technology that our staff use to help your teeth reach their desired position. Our award winning dentists will first take impressions and x-rays of your teeth before using ground breaking technology to design your new smile. It’s as cool as it sounds! 3D technology will show you how your teeth will look at each stage of the treatment. Although using removable aligners as a way of straightening teeth is nothing new, this 3D technology has revolutionised dentistry and allowed dentists to straighten teeth faster than ever.

Free Consultation.

Over three million people use Invisalign as a route to the perfect smile. If you are wondering whether or not, you could be a good candidate for Invisalign you can get in touch with us for a chat or to book a free consultation. Usual candidates for the treatment have low to medium crowding and spacing of the teeth.

Although Invisalign is very reasonably priced, we understand that university life can be expensive which is why we offer you the choice to pay monthly, little by little, at no extra cost for you. Our 0% finance payment plan allows you to have the smile you desire without having to pay the total cost up front. It’s perfect for students. Don’t just take our word for it though. We got back in touch with Jake Sefton, who studies French and Journalism at Cardiff University, and had Invisalign treatment last year.

Jake’s Testimonial for Invisalign

Hi Jake! We hope you’re well, its been a while since we saw you last. Tell us, what made you opt for Invisalign originally?

I started the Invisalign treatment when I was still in second year. I was fast approaching my year abroad in Bordeaux, and I wanted to look my best for when I moved. It felt like a fresh start was approaching, and I wanted to overcome something which was really holding back my confidence my smile. I was scared I would still have braces when I moved out there, so I wanted a fast and discreet treatment. It only took a few searches into Google to realise that Invisalign was the option everyone seemed to be going for. What I really liked about Invisalign was how the aligners just looked like gum shields but could make such a big difference.

Tell us a bit about living with Invisalign.

I’m not going to lie, it was a big strange at first. I play rugby so I’m used to gum shields, but having these aligners in 24/7 was something I had to get used to at first. However, they’re really comfortable all things considered. They were designed to fit my teeth. Eating and drinking was no problem whatsoever as I just took them out when was needed. They really are discreet. My uni pals barely noticed I had them in most of the time as they’re almost invisible.

How was your experience at Bamboo? How did Dr. Dan help you through the treatment?

The 3D technology is really cool. You can see on the screen how your smile is going to look the next time you come back. It really is a good feeling a bit like losing weight where you feel progress each time you step on the scales. Dr. Dans a really cool bloke who was always asking me about my studies and we chatted about football a lot. The whole Bamboo team were really encouraging and friendly. It was never chore to go back.

And how does your smile look now? We’re guessing you were happy with your results.

Happy is an understatement. I finished my treatment just days before moving to Bordeaux. It was a bit tight time wise but that was my fault. My teeth are super straight now. When I first moved here, every time I met people, they commented on my teeth and they obviously never knew me before when I had wonkier teeth. Its the best feeling. I turned something that was an insecurity into my best feature. I don’t understand why more people don’t do it.

Any words of advice for students who are considering getting Invisalign treatment?

Go for it. I wouldn’t pay up front though. I’d take the finance option, especially if you’re a fresher as you want all the spare cash you can get for beers and pizza! Pay monthly and you’re sorted.

Thanks Jake. Best of luck with the rest of your year abroad.
