With the advent of new systems for straightening teeth, adult orthodontics is now becoming increasingly popular. For most people conventional traditional orthodontics has just been too much to consider. With treatment times averaging two years, unsightly brackets and wires in place, this means for most, that modern life and working patterns are interfered with too much.
However, with the introduction of Short Term Orthodontics or Cosmetic Tooth Straightening with Clear Braces all that has changed.
We use several systems for straightening teeth including:
Which system we use will depend on what we are trying to achieve as well as your personal preference.
All of our Clear Brace systems use either clear, “invisible” aligners or tooth coloured “almost invisible” brackets and wires.
All our systems concentrate on improving the alignment and appearance of the front six teeth. We are not looking for major changes with the biting teeth and this is what makes these treatment times so much quicker than conventional orthodontics.
Of course, you may require changes to the biting teeth and if that is the case we are also able to offer the more conventional treatments but with cosmetic brackets and wires or aligners.
Clear aligners or cosmetic brackets and wires, whichever you choose, will give you a great aesthetic result without having to damage and cut down teeth for crowns and veneers as may have been offered in the past.
Patients often choose to have some tooth whitening at the end of treatment and with some minor tooth adjustments via contouring or adding tooth coloured composite, this can really give you a smile to be proud of.
The first step is to discuss your preferences with our team and we can carry out a full assessment to see if you would be suitable for one of our clear brace systems.
