Braces or aligners – what’s the best way to straighten my teeth?

Modern braces and aligners offer subtle, effective, and in many cases rapid ways to straighten your teeth. Denchic Dental Spa in North London offers a number of discreet orthodontic treatment options, designed for anything from minor cosmetic correction to solutions for more extensive issues affecting your bite.

straighten-teethAt our North London dental spa, we strive to provide our clients with treatments that produce excellent results whilst having as little impact on their lifestyle as possible. We are also always keen to emphasise the additional health benefits of orthodontic treatment. Depending on your situation, using either braces or aligners to straighten your teeth can also:

  • Reduce your risk of dental decay and gum disease by eliminating gaps in which plaque can build up
  • Better protect front teeth from accidental damage if they currently protrude
  • Improve your self-confidence, with a knock-on effect on business and personal relationships.

Each system of cosmetic braces and aligners comes with its own set of benefits, and is more suited to certain clinical requirements. When you come for an orthodontic consultation at Denchic Dental Spa, North London, we will ascertain how much and what type of correction is needed and will then work with you to find your ideal treatment.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is a popular system of cosmetic braces that are designed for mild to moderate aesthetic correction of issues affecting the front teeth. Made up of tooth-coloured nickel titanium wires and clear ceramic brackets, this fixed system works in as little as half a year.

These braces work so quickly because they focus on the social six teeth – those that show when you smile.

Good for: Rapid treatment of issues affecting the front teeth.

Inman Aligner

This removable aligner is suitable for treatment of crowding and protrusion issues with the front teeth, working in as little as five months.

Good for: Adult relapse and protruding front teeth.

Invisalign

A system of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign can be used for more extensive orthodontic correction than cosmetic braces.

Good for: Issues affecting more than just your front teeth.
