American comedian Tom Wilson said”a smile is happiness you will find right under your nose”. That’s true, unless you feel uncomfortable and self-conscious because your teeth are gappy, crooked or uneven. Some people are lucky enough to have had braces while they were growing up, but many adults did not have their teeth straightened as children. You may be one of those people who wish that your teeth were straighter, but because of the obtrusive appearance of traditional train track braces, you have decided to live with crooked teeth.
What you may not realise is how much things have changed in recent years. Dentists have recognised that a mouthful of metal is not a good look in a boardroom, or any area of adult life. So now, a wide range of clear, invisible and removable braces are available that are specifically designed with adults in mind. Here at Staplehurst Dental in Kent, teeth straightening is helping many adults find their smile, and their happiness right under their noses.
I’ve waited too long, I want straighter teeth now!
You may be pleasantly surprised to find out that you could have the straight teeth you’ve been dreaming about in just 6 months. Of course, this depends on the complexity of your teeth straightening requirements. In many cases the teeth straightening treatments for adults focus on just your front teeth. All braces work on a similar principle, using pressure on the teeth to guide them in to their new positions. Fixed braces usually need to be adjusted every 5-6 weeks, while removable retainers are usually changed every 2 weeks.
Wearing braces can now fit into your daily life, and almost no-one will guess what you are doing. Just think how great it would be to start your treatment at the beginning of the summer and be showing off your lovely straight teeth in time for your Christmas party.
