Your smile is an important thing. Having a good looking and healthy smile can give people much more confidence to be themselves, however, it also affects how other people perceive you in all kinds of interactions, from job interviews to first dates.
Research shows that 99.7% of adults feel that a great smile is an important social asset, but having straighter teeth can also help to improve oral health and prevent bite problems or the risk of tooth decay.
Orthodontics is the specialist branch of dentistry which focuses on aligning teeth which are crooked, gapped or rotated and improving the smile. When people think of orthodontic treatments, the first thing that probably comes to mind are the traditional metal braces that adults would avoid wearing as teens, however, there are a wide range of subtle and fast orthodontic treatments available which deliver reliable results.
Lingual braces act in the same way as conventional braces, using fixed brackets and arch wires to guide the teeth into the desired position. The essential difference though, is that lingual braces are fitted to the backs of the teeth. They are custom-made to precisely fit the contours of the individual teeth, for a less intrusive and virtually invisible way to improve the smile.
We offer Incognito and STb Light lingual systems, giving people who would like straighter teeth without having their orthodontic treatment on show, the least noticeable way to achieve great results. Find out more about the lingual braces we offer here.
Although ceramic braces are fitted to the front of the teeth, they are a much more subtle orthodontic alternative to traditional braces and more cost-effective than other discreet treatments, making them a popular option for adults and teens alike.
Ceramic braces use small clear or tooth-coloured brackets, meaning that they blend in well with the teeth. Because they offer the same efficient and predictable results as braces, they are the suitable option for people with more moderate to severe malocclusions. See the types of ceramic braces we provide.
Fast becoming a household name, adults across the UK are choosing Invisalign to improve their smile and boost their confidence. Invisalign is a set of clear aligners which gently and gradually guide the teeth to a straightened position. They are extremely thin and custom made to comfortably fit in the mouth and align crooked, gappy or overlapping teeth.
The major benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners can be removed when you want to eat, brush your teeth or even briefly for an event where you’d prefer not to have your treatment on show. Invisalign is an almost invisible form of orthodontic treatment, giving wearers their perfect smile without the inconvenience of wearing metal braces.
