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.
What 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.
