If, when you hear the word “braces” you picture the traditional metal train-track-style devices popular with teenagers, you may be put off teeth straightening treatment. However, at Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent, we urge you to think again, because we offer a number of more discreet methods to straighten your teeth.
An introduction to discreet orthodontics
Discreet orthodontics is teeth straightening treatment for the 21st Century. Using either braces or aligners, it gives your dentist ways to straighten your teeth without everybody knowing that you are having treatment.
At our Kent dental practice we offer treatment with both tooth-coloured braces and clear aligners, all of which have their own benefits and all of which provide a subtler way to straighten your teeth.
We welcome both adults and teenagers who are interested in discreet teeth straightening treatments to our Kent dental practice for a consultation with a member of our orthodontics team.
Do I need braces or aligners?
Clear aligners and tooth-coloured braces can be used for a wide range of orthodontic correction. When you come to our Kent clinic your dentist or orthodontist will carefully examine your teeth and will talk you through the pros and cons of each appropriate treatment. That way, you can be assured you have all the knowledge and facts that you need to make a choice about your treatment.
We use Invisalign clear aligners at our Kent dental clinic. This comprises a series of aligners that fit snugly over your teeth to guide them into a new position. Being both clear and removable, Invisalign aligners have a minimal impact on your lifestyle. We also offer Invisalign Teen, specifically designed for teenage teeth.
Six Month Smiles
These cosmetic braces are made of clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires. Average treatment time is just six months, because they focus on the teeth that show when you smile.
