At Staplehurst dental in Kent, braces are a treatment we love to carry out for patients. Apart from the satisfaction of having straighter teeth after as little as a few months in some cases, braces are non-invasive, so nothing too scary can happen for patients either, which dentists also enjoy!
The biggest benefit for patients who choose braces in kent, is the increase in confidence that they will feel having straighter teeth which can also have an improved bite due to the braces having realigned the teeth.
Almost anyone can have braces if they have wonky teeth or a misaligned bite. Different braces have different requirements. For example, lingual braces are usually only used on front teeth and so may be no good to a patient wanting to straighten out teeth towards the back of the mouth.
Our braces in Kent come in different forms.
Invisalign are the most widely recognised clear braces solution, with millions of cases resolved worldwide. But what are they? Invisalign braces are clear aligners that look a bit like gum shields – but fit a lot more comfortably within the mouth due to being custom made for your unique dental case.
Invisalign aligners are made from a comfortable clear plastic and uses force to gently push the teeth into a straighter position within the mouth.
Six Month Smiles are braces in Kent that can potentially achieve much faster results than traditional braces. The trick is that they are as strong as traditional braces, use an advanced system and also they use tooth coloured brackets and a tooth-coloured wire, giving you the power of metal braces, but the benefit of more discreet braces.
Typically veneers are not classed as braces, however in some minor cases where there is only a slight misalignment – or misalignment on one tooth only, veneers can provide a clever solution to create straight teeth by adding a porcelain veneer to the front of the offending tooth.
