Cosmetic braces

Crooked teeth make many people feel self-conscious, even ashamed of their appearance. In some places the wearing of conventional metal braces is deemed to be the fashionable thing to do but if you have spent many years hiding your smile it may be a step too far to show off the fact that you are making changes.

Luckily, modern advancements mean that many brace systems can now be almost invisible and can give you the smile that you want in a fraction of the time taken with older treatments. Clear or tooth coloured braces help hide them as do tooth coloured wires. Removable clear aligners and Inman aligners are almost see-through and can be taken out for social engagements. If you want something completely invisible then braces attached to the insides of the teeth (lingual) are now possible for some people.

Also, by focusing on the teeth that show when you smile and not making significant bite changes, Anterior Alignment Orthodontics (limited to the front teeth) can improve less crowded mouths in an average time of around six to nine months. This means that in some cases your friends and colleagues will barely notice that you have even had braces at all.

We can use many cosmetic branded systems such as Six Month Smile, Purity, Clarity and In-Ovation C where appropriate and can also use tooth coloured wires so that there is as little on show as possible. We can show you how they may look and choose one that fits your lifestyle. Inside the teeth braces that have proved successful are the 2D Lingual and MTM no trace systems. All have their place these days in our cosmetic orthodontic practice.

Why not be brave and show us your smile in our photographic studio or even email us a photograph. We can then show you how easy it can be to have a smile you can be proud of.
