Fixed metal braces aren’t the only way to straighten your teeth. At Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent we use both discreet fixed appliances and removable aligners to subtly improve the position of both adults’ and teenagers’ teeth. Depending on your individual clinical situation, treatment can be complete in just a few short months.
At out Kent dental clinic we are always keen to extol the health virtues of teeth straightening treatment at any age. Put simply, it is easier to keep better aligned teeth clean, so using either braces or aligners you can also improve your dental hygiene, and cut your risk of gum disease and tooth decay – both of which lead to tooth loss if allowed to become severe.
The major barrier faced by adults when seeking teeth straightening treatment is the false believe that it has to involve metal braces, which are known for being very obvious, uncomfortable, and for having lengthy treatment times.
At Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent we are keen to offer some more discreet alternatives, so that you can enjoy all the benefits of teeth straightening treatment with none of the hassle.
When you come into our Kent clinic for a teeth straightening consultation, your dentist will assess your clinical situation and talk you through our relevant treatment options.
Teeth straightening at Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent may involve:
Six Month Smiles are popular cosmetic braces, which are designed to act in as little as half a year by focussing on the teeth that show when you smile. Although they will be fixed to your teeth for the duration of treatment, few people will notice Six Month Smiles immediately. That’s because they comprise clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, thus blend in with the natural shade of your teeth.
Invisalign is a popular alternative to fixed braces. Treatment involves using a series of clear, removable aligners to gently adjust the position of your teeth. Because you can take them out for tooth brushing etc, Invisalign make it easy to maintain good dental hygiene during treatment. You should wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day.Back to Blog
