Many adults in the UK want to improve the appearance of their smiles. There are more cosmetic treatments today than there ever has been in the past. People can find treatments for anything from tooth discolouration to gummy smiles.
At practices such as Denchic Dental Spa in North London, braces are offered to correct cosmetic issues with crooked teeth and overcrowding. Braces have evolved a lot over the years and more modern treatments don’t have the same downsides as traditional fixed braces.
Cosmetic braces options: Invisalign
Invisalign is a truly modern treatment that sprung from the advent of 3d printing. It is a huge change from traditional fixed metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of plastic aligners, each slightly different in shape from the next one in the series. They gradually reposition the patient’s teeth using gentle pressure.
The advantages of Invisalign is that the aligners are made from translucent plastic that can barely be seen when they are in use. This is a big improvement on traditional metal braces.
The aligners are also removable making the daily maintenance of the teeth much less of a hassle than with a fixed appliance. Invisalign treatment takes, on average, 12 months to complete and after treatment a retainer is supplied to keep the patient’s teeth straight.
Cosmetic braces options:Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles can give a patient’s smile a new lease on life. This treatment is based on the traditional braces system and works on the same principles.
The treatment time is reduced dramatically because this treatment focuses on just the front six teeth that are visible when people smile often called the ‘social six’.
These braces in North London are made from clear and tooth-coloured materials so they aren’t as conspicuous as their predecessors.
Cosmetic braces options: Inman Aligner
The Inman Aligner is another removable device that can correct crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. This treatment also works faster as it works on just the front teeth.
The treatment is usually complete in 6–18 weeks, giving patients effective yet speedy results.
Due to the range of choices, now is a better time for patients to straighten their teeth than ever before with braces in North London.
