Adult braces in Kent – discreet teeth straightening made simple

25 April 2017

Think you’re too old for braces? Think again. Contrary to popular belief, teeth straightening is not only for children and teenagers. In recent years, many adult patients are turning to teeth straightening in order to fix their teeth and improve the quality of their life. However, unlike children, adults are more self-conscious of their image and are not always thrilled to wear metal braces.

At Staplehurst Dental in Kent, braces have come a long way. Modern dentistry has improved in many exciting ways and we are now able to offer discreet teeth straightening treatments for self-conscious adults. These range from invisible aligners to tooth-coloured brackets.

Invisalign

Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening method, which consists of a series of custom-made clear, plastic aligners that look similar to whitening trays. The aligners are removable and are only worn for two weeks at a time before being replaced. They are custom-made and fit snugly over your teeth and gums in order to help your teeth gradually move to their right position over a prescribed period of time. The number of aligners you will wear in total depends on the length of your treatment and the severity of your case.

Invisalign aligners have some obvious advantages over other teeth straightening methods. To start with, they are completely transparent, thus almost invisible. You can now wear them throughout the day without worrying that people will notice you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment. Invisalign aligners are also removable. They can be taken out to eat, brush and floss your teeth, however, you must wear them at least 20 hours per day for best results.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are tooth-coloured brackets and wires, designed to move your front teeth both quickly and subtly. As suggested by their name, Six Month Smiles braces take an average of six months to straighten your teeth. Sometimes, people get their teeth straightened even sooner than that.

Six Month Smiles braces work just like metal braces, but they only target the front teeth that appear when you smile. They are ideal for people who want to have their teeth straightened quickly and effectively for a special occasion.
