If every time you think of teeth straightening, braces are the first thing to come to mind, then think again. Modern advances in dentistry have made it possible to straighten your teeth without the need to endure unsightly, metal brackets and wires for months on end. Your cosmetic dentist at Harley Street Dental Clinic can recommend invisible braces in Harley Street for effective and discreet results.
Generally, invisible braces are more comfortable than traditional braces and can straighten your teeth in less time. They can either be fixed (lingual braces, clear braces) or removable (Invisalign) and they will make you want to smile more without anybody knowing that you are undergoing treatment. With invisible braces in Harley Street, there’s nothing to hide.
Just like metal braces, lingual braces are fixed, metal braces. However, as their name suggests, they are attached behind the teeth, opposite the tongue and for this reason they are virtually invisible to other people. Lingual braces are capable of complex movements and can correct severely crooked and misaligned teeth. They are ideal for image-conscious adults or professionals, who are not eligible for Invisalign. They can also be used by children.
Clear braces are fixed braces as well, which are made of tooth-coloured brackets and wires that blend naturally with the colour of your teeth. Clear braces are barely invisible and provide the patient with much needed confidence when wearing them.
Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening method that helps move teeth into their right position over time. The treatments consists of a series of removable aligners, which need to be replaced every two weeks or so. Because they are custom-made, Invisalign aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth and gums, allowing your dentist to make all the necessary adjustments required for straightening your teeth. Perhaps more importantly, Invisalign aligner are removable, therefore, you can take them out whenever you wish to eat or brush and floss your teeth. However, remember to wear them at least 22 hours per day for effective results.
