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.
Adult 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 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.
