Smooth out your smile with braces in North London

There’s something so important about having beautifully lined up teeth. They tell the world you are strong and healthy and somehow that subliminal information opens all sorts of doors that can otherwise need a good shove. It’s just how people are hardwired to react to a smile. They see a good strong, white smile, complete with genuinely crinkled up eyes, and their instincts say ‘This is a warm, friendly person. I want to be around them and help them.’ When your teeth don’t line up beautifully, people can’t help but react to them. It’s how we are wired and sadly, wonky teeth are a feature of modern life.

The good news, if you are a person with wonky teeth, is that they are easily and discreetly fixed with braces in North London from us at Denchic Dental Spa.

Braces in North LondonIf you’ve made it to adulthood without getting your teeth straightened, this is probably because you didn’t qualify for funding on the NHS. The NHS only funds treatment for severe misalignments involving the jaws as well as the teeth. The good news for you is that if it’s only your teeth that need fixing, and it probably is, then it’s a lot quicker and requires smaller braces than getting your bite realigned.

In fact, we stock some great braces in North London that are specifically designed for adults who want quick, discreet teeth straightening.

Invisalign

These are plastic aligners that go over the teeth like snug mouth guards. Carefully placed pressure points nudge the teeth into alignment. The aligners are very hard to spot once in place and are removable for eating and cleaning.

Six Month Smiles

Small, clear ceramic brackets and dainty tooth-coloured wires can straighten out the front six teeth in an average time of only six months.

The Inman Aligner

Two spring loaded aligner bows go in front of and behind the front teeth to straighten them. Treatment can take as little as six weeks.

With all three methods you will need to wear a retainer for a while after treatment to keep the teeth in the correct position.

Slightly wonky is so easy to fix

It’s so easy to fix those slightly wonky teeth of yours that you pretend you don’t mind about but secretly you can’t stand. Do you put your hand over your mouth when you smile? Or smile with your lips closed? You may think you are fooling other people, but the message they receive when you do either of those things is that you are not a very warm friendly person. We know that’s not the case, but humans are hardwired to use the smile as a gauge of whether someone is a friend or foe.

Braces in North LondonGentle realignment

And yet, with the right braces in North London, from us at Denchic Dental Spa, your slightly wonky teeth would be a doddle to straighten out. It’s the misaligned bites that take years and lots of discomfort to sort out. Mild to moderate misalignments of the front six teeth, known as the social teeth, only need gentle forces to nudge them into position. And at Denchic Dental Spa, we offer a range of braces in North London that have been designed specifically to realign mildly wonky teeth. One brand, the Inman Aligner takes only 6–19 weeks to realign your front teeth.

Discreet straightening

Maybe you have been putting off getting braces in North London because you think it would be worse to have to live with ugly train track braces on your teeth than the misalignment that you know you can put up with. We can understand that adults would rather not wear the metal braces associated with awkward adolescence, which is why our braces have discretion as one of their key selling points.

We have braces that blend in with your teeth so that they are not the first thing that people notice when they meet you.

One brand, Six Month Smiles, looks more like tooth jewellery than braces with its clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured wires, it could almost be a necklace for the teeth.

Another brand, Invisalign, is almost invisible once it is in place over your teeth.

The smile you want in just six months

If this sounds like just what you need then look no further than Six Month Smiles. They are a form of adult cosmetic braces in North London and are designed for straightforward cases – scenarios where the teeth don’t require a huge amount of movement to correct.

Six Month Smiles braces in North London may appeal to patients who perhaps had braces when they were younger, but didn’t continue to wear their retainers, resulting their teeth partly shifting back to their former positions. A small adjustment would therefore be enough to get back their ideal smile.

One of the major benefits of Six Month Smiles at Denchic Dental Spa is the length of the treatment time. The average treatment lasts just six months, hence the name Six Month Smiles. However, treatment can range anywhere from four to nine months depending on your specific dental issues.

Braces in North LondonCan I have Six Month Smiles treatment?

So how do you know if you would be a good candidate for Six Month Smiles braces in North London? Well that’s where Denchic Dental Spa comes in. When you arrive at our practice, you will be welcomed by our friendly team. At your initial consultation, we will take x-rays of your teeth, we’ll check for any areas of decay and assess what kind of movement you require to see if you qualify for Six Month Smiles braces in North London.

What next?

If you decide to go ahead with Six Month Smiles treatment, we’ll take a set of impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be sent to our lab to prepare the brackets that will be placed on the fronts of your teeth. The brackets and wire are tooth-coloured or clear so they will blend into the background of your teeth.

Once your new braces are fitted, you’ll come back to our practice every three to four weeks for some minor adjustments, as this will give us an opportunity to see how your treatment is progressing.

Once you are happy with the position of your teeth, we can make retainers for you. We ask that you wear your retainers every night. That way you can keep your new smile for many years to come.

Which one is your braces system?

Modern dentistry just keeps getting better and better, and nowhere more so than in the area of teeth straightening. The digital age has led to new technologies and the use of new materials and technologies that allow researchers to come up with systems of braces that are more discreet and comfortable than ever before. There are now so many great systems of braces in North London.

It doesn’t matter if you couldn’t get NHS funding as a child, you can invest in your own equally effective and more discreet treatment with braces in North London, with us at Denchic Dental Spa.

Braces in North LondonPeople don’t seem to realise that teeth can move around in the jaw throughout life, no matter how old someone is, and getting braces is not age-dependent once you have at least some adult teeth. In fact, it’s not unusual for much older people to have teeth straightening so that they can have dental implants fitted.

At Denchic Dental Spa, we offer three kinds of braces in North London:

Inman Aligner

This removable device realigns the front teeth only. It uses the opposing forces of two metal spring-loaded aligner bows which fit in front of and behind the front teeth. Treatment takes only 6–18 weeks and the aligner doubles as a retainer to hold the teeth in place while they settle in.

Invisalign

These are transparent, plastic, 3D printed mouth guard-style trays. They fit so snugly over the teeth that they become almost invisible once they are in place. You start with tray 1 in the series, which is a tiny bit different than how your teeth are now. Carefully placed pressure points inside the aligner starts to move your teeth toward alignment. You wear each tray in the series for about a week to 10 days. Treatment takes about a year.

Six Month Smiles

Small, clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured wires use the same mechanical principles as traditional braces to move teeth. However, because they are moving the teeth and not realigning the bite, the forces are much gentler. Six Month Smiles takes, on average, six months to realign the front six social teeth — the ones most people are concerned about because they are most often on view.

What’s your investment in yourself this year?

Now is the time that people often think about upgrading their lives in some way and what better way is there than to upgrade your smile with braces in North London?

When you choose to have teeth straightening with us at Denchic Dental Spa, you get a wide choice of contemporary straightening systems. And when you have gone through your treatment, what better way to celebrate your lovely new smile than with our complimentary teeth-whitening treatment? Our free electric toothbrush will also help keep your lovely new teeth in great condition.

Braces in North LondonHere at Denchic Dental Spa, we have carefully chosen our range of systems of braces in North London to cover every alignment issue or lifestyle need. With more and more adults now opting to get their teeth straightened, priorities include discretion and speed.

Six months to straighter teeth

One treatment is Six Month Smiles. This fixed bracket and wire system combines modern dental materials with tried and trusted mechanics. These braces in North London are designed to make minor to moderate adjustments to the front six social teeth only, the ones that show when you speak and smile. It uses gentler forces created by smaller brackets, made of clear ceramic, strung together with tooth-coloured wires, blending in with the teeth rather than dominating them. They provide precise and accurate movement, which takes on average only six months.

Almost invisible

Another system, Invisalign, uses clear plastic aligners, rather like mouth guards, that seem to not quite fit properly. This pressure moves the teeth. Each patient gets a series of aligners, somewhere between 12 and 48 of them, and wears each one for about two weeks before moving on to the next. These are removable for easy eating and teeth cleaning, which is a great plus for many people.

The need for speed

The Inman Aligner uses spring-loaded aligner bows in front of and behind the teeth to move the front teeth only. This aligner can move the teeth in as little as 6–18 weeks. Afterwards it doubles as a retainer, reducing costs.

Why bother with braces in North London?

Many adults have got mildly misaligned teeth. Very few of us are born with perfect alignment, but, on the other hand, our problems are not severe enough to qualify for NHS treatment. You have to have serious bite problems to get that. So, we grow up with a bit of twisting, leaning in or out, gappy bits, teeth that didn’t descend enough. And we think, ‘Well it’s ok. It would be pure vanity to get my teeth straightened’.

Well, no actually, it wouldn’t be vain. It would be very sensible, and that’s why at Denchic Dental Spa, we encourage our adult patients to invest in braces in North London.

Braces in North LondonAlthough in terms of labelling, a lot of brands of braces in North London come under the dental umbrella term of cosmetic braces, they do, in fact, play a very important role in preserving strong, healthy teeth. And here’s why:

Plaque

Plaque is that sticky substance that builds up on the teeth during the day. We remove it when we brush out teeth, which should be twice daily. But, if we leave that plaque for three days, it starts to harden into tartar. Plaque is in fact a film of bacteria that live in the mouth and feed off the sugars in it. They multiply, creating the plaque, and then give off acid. The acid eats into the enamel of our teeth, creating the holes for more bacteria to sneak in through and start the decay process. Acid irritates our gums and causes gum disease.

It’s far harder to brush away plaque from wonky teeth than lovely aligned ones. The plaque that is missed, hiding away in nooks and crannies, is the cause of decay and gum disease and both can lead to tooth loss.

Pressure

When the pressure of eating is even distributed along the length of each arch, the teeth work well. When only one or two are taking the brunt of pressure from chewing, they will probably crumble away before their time.

Align your teeth with braces in North London and they are far more likely to last longer, maybe even for life.

You can do it without anyone noticing

You know what puts most adults off having their teeth straightened with braces in North London? It isn’t the cost. It isn’t the discomfort. It isn’t even the hassle. It’s the thought that other people will be able to see their braces and may ridicule them for getting important work done on their teeth.

Braces in North LondonThis may sound silly, but, even now, wearing braces in North London is forever associated with nerdy young teenagers. You know them? They’re the ones all the other kids in class took the micky out of. Who wants anything to do with that? Not us at Denchic Dental Spa, that’s for sure. And that’s why we have a range of braces for adults that are nothing like unsightly ones from years gone by.

When you come to us to get braces in North London, we will do a thorough examination of your misalignment before suggesting the system most suited to correcting it, and also the one most suited to your lifestyle and your budget.

Explore your options

It may be that you don’t want anyone to know you are wearing braces and have mild to moderate issues, in which case you may be best suited to Invisalign. This system uses mouth guard-style clear plastic aligners that snap on over the teeth. The plastic is so thin that, at 0.3 millimetres, that no one can spot it once the aligners are in place. The other great thing about these braces in North London is that they are removable for eating, drinking and cleaning your teeth, which takes a lot of the hassle out of treatment.

Or perhaps you don’t mind a bit of braces on show and would rather get treatment over with quickly. If it’s your front teeth that need help then Six Month Smiles could be for you. The brackets are made of clear ceramic and are much smaller than usual, and the wires are tooth-coloured. The whole thing blends in with your teeth rather than dominating them.

Or, if it’s only your very front teeth that need help, you could go for the Inman Aligner.

Simply wear them every day, taking them out to eat and brush your teeth, and you will have a confident new smile soon.

These are far less obvious than traditional braces. Six Month Smiles braces focus on just your front teeth, exerting gentle but constant pressure on them. More importantly, Six Month Smiles braces will straighten your teeth and give you a beautiful smile in 4-9 months, with six months being the average treatment time.
