Metal braces may result in a smile that stands out from the crowd – but, whilst you’re having treatment, you may fear standing out for the wrong reasons. Denchic Dental Spa recognises the need for discretion when it comes to straightening adults’ teeth, which is why we offer a number of subtler alternatives to traditional metal braces in North London.
The benefit of teeth straightening
As well as giving you the smile of your dreams, the teeth straightening options available from our North London dental spa can make your mouth heathier, too. This is for the simple reason that when your teeth are better aligned, the easier it is to keep them clean, with fewer areas in which dental plaque can build up. Whether you choose braces or aligners to close the gaps, straightening your teeth can help to protect you from tooth decay and gum disease – as long as you have a good oral hygiene routine, and visit your dentist and hygienist regularly.
North London braces and aligners
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles are popular cosmetic braces that work in as little as half a year by focusing on the front six teeth – the teeth people see when you smile. Indeed, six months is the average treatment time, with some milder cases at our North London dental spa completing in just four.
Unlike metal braces, Six Month Smiles comprise clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, and blend in so well with the natural shade of your teeth that they will not be obvious in everyday life.
A very popular choice at our North London clinic, treatment with Invisalign involves the use of a series of clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to guide them into an improved position, week by week.
Unlike fixed braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, meaning you can take them out to clean, as well as to brush and floss your teeth in the usual manner.
Your dentist will prescribe you the required number of aligners, which you will change every fortnight as your teeth being to move.
