Crooked, crowded or gapped teeth can compromise your confidence, make you smile less and affect your personal and social life. Adults can receive the same benefits as children do from wearing braces – an improved smile and better oral health. However, quite a few adults avoid teeth straightening treatment simply because they don’t want to wear unattractive braces.
Fortunately, modern teeth straightening solutions are specifically created for adults. They will leave you with beautifully straight teeth without anyone knowing that you are undergoing teeth straightening in Kent. At Staplehurst Dental Practice, you can choose between Invisalign and Six Month Smiles braces in order to align your teeth quickly and discreetly. Our experienced dentist will help you decide which treatment is ideal for your unique dental needs.
Invisalign treatment is a clear teeth straightening alternative to metal braces. The treatment consists of a series of transparent, removable, plastic aligners that help move your teeth into their correct position over a prescribed period of time. Invisalign aligners are made with 3D technology, allowing your dentist to monitor your progress over time. Treatment time varies per person, but rarely exceeds 12 months. During this time, you will go through a series of clear aligners that are changed every two weeks for optimal results.
Invisalign aligners are invisible and removable and are ideal if you wish to straighten your teeth without altering your lifestyle. You can remove the aligners to eat or brush your teeth and you can enjoy your favourite foods without worrying that you will break them. However, you must wear them at least 22 hours per day for effective treatment.
Six Month Smiles
Unlike Invisalign, Six Month Smiles braces are fixed braces attached to the front teeth. However, they blend in with your teeth, because they are made of tooth-coloured brackets and wires. Six Month Smiles braces work just like regular braces, but focus on the front teeth without altering your bite. They are ideal for patients who wish to straighten their teeth in anticipation of a special occasion.
