The great British smile

The British are supposedly famous for having ugly and unkempt teeth, which perhaps explains why people are seeking aesthetic improvements in huge numbers. Us Brits now spend £360 million a year on cosmetic dentistry. But it can be a costly and slow process. Luckily, braces in North London at Denchic Dental Spa are here to make the process quicker and easier than ever.

Metal mouth. Jaws. Ugly Betty. It can be no fun having braces as a teenager, but what about when you are an adult? The number of adults seeking braces has increased hugely in the last decade. So, if you think you may need braces in North London, look no further than Denchic Dental Spa.

Braces in North LondonWe believe the stigma of wearing braces is certainly less than it was years ago and the stigma of having bad teeth is worse than ever, creating the increase in demand for braces in North London.

Braces benefits

Teeth straightening can make a real difference to a person’s health – an incorrect bite can cause jaw and muscle strain and headaches, and it can be harder to clean crooked teeth. Many of our patients are motivated by the search for a perfectly straight smile that can be achieved with braces in North London.

Brace options

For those who are horrified by the idea of metal train track braces, there are less noticeable options. Modern braces in North London, such as Six Month Smiles, use clear brackets that are glued to the fronts of the teeth, making them much less obvious than traditional metal brackets.

The Invisalign system is also especially popular with our patients as it uses a series of clear plastic aligners to glide the teeth into place. These aligners will be replaced every 2 weeks with the next in your custom-made series, gradually creating your dream smile easily and quickly.

Another popular choice for our patients is the Inman Aligner. If you are seeking a simple, fast, and cost effective way of straightening your front teeth – top or bottom – then the Inman Aligner could be perfect for you. You can even achieve your final result in as little as 6 weeks.

Which one is your braces system?

We are so lucky to live in a time when there are so many ways to get teeth straightened with braces in North London. New materials and technologies seem to have unleashed an explosion of creativity among dental researchers, with liberating results for the patient.

You no longer need to just live with teeth that are a bit wonky, gappy or crowded – the kind of alignment issues that fall just outside the NHS parameters for braces funding. And the great news is that if you couldn’t get NHS funding as a child, you can fund yourself for equally effective and definitely more discreet treatment with braces in North London, with us at Denchic Dental Spa.

Braces in North LondonThe great thing about teeth is that they can move around in the jaw throughout your life, so if you want to get teeth moved into alignment, you can do it no matter how old you are. In fact, some much older people have teeth straightening so that they can have dental implants fitted.

At Denchic Dental Spa, we offer 3 kinds of braces in North London:

Six Month Smiles

Small, clear ceramic brackets hold tooth-coloured wires that use the same mechanical principles as traditional braces to move teeth. However, because they are only concerned with moving the teeth and not realigning the bite, the forces are much gentler. Six Month Smiles takes, on average, 6 months to realign the front 6 social teeth – the ones most people are concerned about because they are most often on view.

Inman Aligner

A removable device that realigns the front teeth only, using the opposing forces of 2 metal spring-loaded aligner bows. Treatment takes only a few weeks and you then use the aligner to hold the teeth in place while they settle in.

Invisalign

Not your usual braces, but transparent, plastic, 3D printed trays that fit so snugly over the teeth that they become almost invisible. You get a series of them. You start with your first tray, which is a tiny bit different than how your teeth are now. Pressure from the plastic starts to move your teeth toward alignment. You wear each tray in the series for about 2 weeks. Treatment takes about a year on average.

Braces in North London: a guide for adults

In recent years, more and more adults have been visiting the dentist for teeth straightening. Dental health has no age limit and it is very common for patients to seek teeth straightening treatment later in life. However, the biggest hang-ups for adult patients in need of teeth straightening is treatment time and appearances. Not all people feel comfortable wearing metal braces, since they can have a serious impact on their appearance and self-esteem.

Braces in North LondonAdult braces are becoming more common in modern dentistry. Advances in materials and techniques make braces accessible and aesthetically pleasing for anyone, including adults who are self-conscious about their smile. At Denchic Dental Spa, adult braces in North London are hardly noticeable. Whether you opt for Six Month Smiles braces or Invisalign, our experienced dentists will ease you through every stage of the treatment. Here are some basic things to know about our discreet teeth straightening treatments.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles treatment works just like traditional braces, but focuses only on the front teeth without altering the bite. The system is very discreet as it consists of clear or tooth-colored brackets and thin titanium wires. The gentle forces used and short treatment time, 6 months on average, result in fewer visits to our practice, saving you time and discomfort. Six Month Smiles usually costs less than traditional braces and is ideal for patients who want to straighten their most visible teeth for a more confident smile.

Invisalign

Invisalign is an almost invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile of your dreams without sacrificing your comfort. The treatment consists of a series of clear, removable, custom-made aligners that help move your teeth to the final desired positions. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks or so before being replaced by the next one in the series. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your dentist based on your individual, dental needs.

Straighten your teeth with cosmetic braces in North London

Metal braces have been around for many years and offer effective treatment to patients with crooked, crowded and misaligned teeth. Traditional metal braces have come a long way and now they are more lightweight and discreet than ever, as well as being made from exceptionally strong metals that stand the test of time. However, they are still visible when you smile and not all patients are happy with that.

At Denchic Dental Spa, we understand that while many people want to straighten their teeth, they want to do so without everyone knowing about it. That’s why we offer a range of cosmetic braces in North London suited to your individual needs. You can discuss your concerns with our experienced dentists, learn about your options and receive an accurate quote for the treatment involved.

Unlike traditional braces, Six Month Smiles treatment uses tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets to straighten your teeth gradually within on average 6 months. The reason Six Month Smiles treatment time is so short is because these braces focus exclusively on the front teeth without altering your bite.

Six Month Smiles brackets are smaller than regular metal brackets and look far less conspicuous. As well as being hardly noticeable and fast-acting, the gentle pressure that moves the teeth makes them more comfortable than traditional braces.

Invisalign

Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening treatments that uses removable, transparent aligners to help move your teeth into their right positions. Invisalign aligners are very comfortable to wear because they are made of high quality plastic with the aid of 3D technology. This technology means that your dentist can predict the movement of your teeth so will know exactly what to expect as your treatment progresses.

Invisalign aligners need to be changed every 2 weeks or so for the next set in the series. They are removable so you can therefore take them out to eat or brush your teeth. However, treatment with Invisalign requires commitment, since the aligners have to be worn for at least 22 hours per day. Treatment time varies for each patient, although it rarely exceeds 12 months.

Straighter teeth and happier smiles

If you feel confident about your smile, you can express yourself without worrying about how you look and life feels a lot more enjoyable.

Braces in North LondonWhy should I have braces?

Apart from diminishing the beauty of your smile, crooked teeth can affect your oral health. Misaligned teeth are harder to clean, as there are more spaces for plaque to accumulate. Having clean teeth avoids gum problems and keeps your teeth strong, as well as preventing issues such as bad breath. Having braces at an early age, usually when there is a mixture of adult and baby teeth, ensures that the teeth and jaw develop normally. However, if you are an adult who has missed out on corrective procedures as a child, it is not too late to benefit from braces in North London.

21st century braces

Metal is not the only material used in braces in North London. At Denchic Dental Spa, we have several systems for teeth straightening that are more discreet and comfortable. Why not come along for a no-obligation consultation and find out more about how these appliances could help.

Teeth straightening focuses on aligning your teeth and your bite. This field has seen a great deal of research and development over the past 30 years. This has resulted in a much wider choice of materials and methods, and treatments taking much less time. This increase in options has led to more and more adults getting their teeth straightened, either because they never had the chance to undergo such treatment as a child, or because their teeth have shifted since they had treatment as a young teen.

Braces in North LondonWhat we can do for you

At Denchic Dental Spa, we appreciate that the standard metal braces may not be what you want and we listen to your concerns about wearing braces in North London. To be honest, traditional appliances are really only needed in serious cases where the dentist needs maximum control over the movement of each and every tooth, and the bite is out of alignment as well as the teeth.

For you as the wearer, the main problem with metal braces is that they are very hard to miss in your mouth. Their glaring presence can be as hard to bear for many adults as having crooked teeth. Metal braces are also seen as uncomfortable,  although advancing techniques and materials are making them less so. They are also seen as taking longer to do their work.

That’s why we offer a range of discreet braces in North London. In terms of fixed appliances, we use Six Month Smiles, which are designed to correct minor to moderate issues with the front teeth. These fixed appliances are made of clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, which means they blend into your mouth. Treatment takes, on average, just 6 months.

We also offer clear aligners, which are like very thin plastic mouth guards that fit over your teeth and can be taken out to eat and to clean, which is good for dental hygiene.

Are wonky teeth ruining your smile?

If you have teeth which are crooked, spaced too widely or crowded, you may find yourself feeling self-conscious about your smile. This can make social situations awkward and having your photograph taken difficult. If you have considered braces but dismissed the idea because you thought they would be unsightly, time-consuming, inconvenient or uncomfortable, then you may like to hear about a new range of braces. North London is home to Denchic Dental Spa and we are proud to offer techniques which will revolutionise your opinion of corrective treatment.

braces-north-londonThe subtle approach

Many people do not want to have to cope with a mouthful of metal while they have their teeth straightened. Luckily, you no longer have to, as modern methods are faster, more comfortable and less obtrusive than ever before. We offer braces in North London that fit into your lifestyle and give you the smile you dream of. The Invisalign system uses a series of almost invisible clear plastic trays that are individually made to fit your mouth. They are changed every two weeks to gently guide your teeth into a new position, and are removable so you can take them out for eating and cleaning. Inman aligners are also removable and designed specifically for your front teeth. A pair of spring-loaded aligner bars create continuous pressure to realign your teeth. The whole process is very fast and gentle and the aligner acts as a retainer once the teeth are in the correct place. Another option if you are looking for braces in North London is the Six Month Smiles technique, which uses very discreet clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires.

Why have straighter teeth?

Aside from the obvious benefits of a more attractive smile, straighter teeth are also healthier. This is because there are fewer gaps in which plaque can accumulate, so they are easier to clean, helping you avoid the risk of decay or gum problems. Having braces in North London can also help keep your teeth strong by ensuring that they in the correct position and therefore stable.

Braces in North LondonSix Months Smiles is here to help

Six Month Smiles is a popular choice for braces in North London. There is an abundance of benefits to Six Month Smiles, so it’s no wonder this has become one of our bestselling treatments. Initially, when our clients hear about the Six Month Smiles treatment they often presume it is similar to traditional metal braces.

Granted, there are aspects of the treatment that are similar, such as their transformative technique through the fitting of wires and brackets, but this is where the similarity ends.

Six Month Smiles focuses on your front teeth, where the cosmetic benefits are most obvious. This targeted approach decreases the length of treatment times and also means teeth seldom need to be extracted prior to treatment. This means that there are even fewer risks of causing damage to your teeth.

Another benefit is the efficiency of Six Month Smiles braces in North London. The clue is in the name, as they do usually take, on average just 6 months. In some cases, they may take up to 9 months, but this is still a quick and efficient time frame compared to traditional braces.

Six Month Smiles are also an unobtrusive answer to braces in North London. The special nickel titanium wires are tooth-coloured and so more easily blend into the background of your teeth.

Can adults have them?

There is a preconception attached to braces that only teens can have them. Denchic Dental Spa can reveal that this is not the case. Six Month Smiles can fit straight into your life as a busy adult, whether you’re a full-time parent, or a dedicated professional.
