If you missed out on teeth straightening treatment as a child or have been unfortunate enough to have your formerly straightened teeth shift back, you haven’t missed the boat. Your teeth can be straightened at any age and what’s more, this doesn’t mean wearing cumbersome train track braces.
North London is home to our friendly practice, Denchic Dental Spa, where we offer discreet braces to resolve crooked, crowded or spaced out teeth. Let’s take a look at a few of the options available:
Six Month Smiles
As you may have guessed from the brand name, with these braces in North London you can straighten your teeth in, on average, just six months. They focus on your front teeth, the ones that have the biggest impact on your smile. The clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires ensure these fixed braces won’t dominate your teeth, but will instead blend into the background. Gentler forces are used, without compromising the effectiveness of the treatment, making Six Month Smiles more comfortable than their traditional metal counterparts.
Invisalign hardly resembles what most people consider braces in North London. These clear, plastic aligners are custom-made to fit over your teeth. Minor imperfections alongside the inner surface of the aligners nudge your teeth into position. You will be given a series of aligners, with each worn for about two weeks before you move onto the next. The aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat, brush and floss. All you need to ensure is that you wear your aligners for at least 20–22 hours a day, so that your treatment will run to schedule.
When it comes to speed, the Inman Aligner is the way to go. Targeting the front six teeth with two spring-loaded bows, your teeth will be pushed into alignment within 6-18 weeks.
What is the right choice for you?
With so many different braces in North London to choose from, it is important to come in for a consultation with one of our experienced dentists. They will be able to advise you on which treatments are most appropriate based on the state of your teeth, as well as other factors such as cost and convenience.
