Braces are a popular and effective treatment but not everyone looks forward to wearing them. Braces are very common for children and teenagers, but adults would rather not have a mouthful of metal brackets and wires. Luckily, dentistry has advanced and teeth straightening treatment can be accomplished through alternative methods.
At Orpington Dental Care, we care about comfort, aesthetics and efficiency, when it comes to braces in Orpington. You probably have friends with regular braces who aren’t allowed to eat their favourite foods and need to visit the dentist regularly for adjustments. With Invisalign, you can enjoy all your favourite foods without altering your lifestyle. Six Month Smiles, on the other hand, helps you gain beautifully straight teeth discreetly.
Invisalign – no one needs to know
Invisalign is a discreet teeth straightening treatment, which consists of plastic, removable aligners. These aligners are customised to fit over your teeth and help them move into their optimal position over a specific period of time. If you opt for Invisalign, you need to ensure that you wear your aligners at least 22 hours per day for best results. Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating and brushing your teeth and they are easy to keep clean and hygienic. Last, but not least they are more comfortable than regular braces and require fewer adjustments.
Six Month Smiles – smile confidently
Just like regular braces, Six Month Smiles braces in Orpington are fixed to the teeth. However, these braces only focus on the front teeth and do not move the tooth roots, therefore they cannot affect your bite. Six Month Smiles braces have taken the technology of regular braces and modified the treatment to offer patients a cosmetic solution in only six months (or less!). These braces are ideal for patients who want to straighten their teeth for a special event, like a wedding or a graduation.
If you are not completely confident about your smile, and you would like to look into your options, contact us today and we will book a consultation appointment for you. With our discreet braces in Orpington, you can focus on doing what you do best – being yourself and keep smiling.
