Teeth straightening without the metal braces

26 April 2016

Teeth straightening no longer needs to involve unsightly metal braces. At Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent, we can use a number of more discreet methods to improve the alignment of your teeth – boosting both your smile and your dental health.

Why you should consider teeth straightening

You’re wrong if you think that teeth straightening is purely about aesthetics. Whilst it’s true that straightening your teeth can have a positive impact on your self-confidence and your interactions with other people in both the professional and personal realm, it’s also true that straighter teeth are healthier teeth, because they are much easier to clean.

Brushing and flossing is much simpler when your teeth are straighter, and this in turn reduces your chances of dental decay and gum disease, which is beneficial to both your oral and overall health.

Teeth straightening in Kent

Staplehurst Dental Practice offers a number of discreet teeth straightening methods for adults and teenagers. When you come into our Kent practice for an orthodontic consultation, we will conduct a thorough clinical examination before recommending the most appropriate treatment.

Among your options at our Kent dental practice are:

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces that work quickly and discreetly, focussing on those teeth that show when you smile. They comprise clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, and have average treatment times of between three and nine months.

Invisalign

Invisalign treatment involves using a series of clear aligners to guide your teeth into a new position. We offer standard Invisalign treatment, along with Invisalign Teen and Invisalign i7 for minor correction.

Non-orthodontic options

Your dentist can also improve the alignment of your teeth with veneers, or by polishing away parts of a tooth or teeth to make them appear straighter. These options only work in cases where minor correction is required.
