There’s no doubt that our teeth play an important part in how we look and feel about ourselves. It’s probably one of the first things we notice about other people when we meet them and it can really affect our confidence if our teeth are crooked, protruding or unevenly spaced.
To ensure they have straight teeth as adults, many children are fitted with the traditional train-track braces which can take up to two years to work. This procedure is not convenient for most adults. You may think that if you didn’t have braces as a child you’ll just have to live with your less than perfect smile forever. The great news is that this is no longer true and there are a range of different options available that are both quick and discrete. Here at Staplehurst Dental in Kent, teeth straightening is one of the treatments we offer to help improve your smile.
Teeth straightening in Kent
Having straight teeth is not just a cosmetic issue; uneven, crooked or misaligned teeth are hard to keep clean and are more prone to uneven wear, cavities and fractures. Teeth that are poorly aligned can also affect your overall health as problems with your bite or jaw alignment can cause problems such as head, neck or jaw aches. Straightened teeth may help to increase the longevity of the teeth themselves. If you’re considering what benefits teeth straightening may have for you for either aesthetic or medical reasons, we offer a range of adult-friendly options here at our friendly, modern dental practice.
