Enjoying your clear braces W1

For those people who need to straighten their teeth or realign their bite for an improvement in appearance and general wellbeing, using one of the many options that are available these days may enable you to actually enjoy your journey.


Although few people would consider straightening their teeth as an enjoyable experience, we have worked hard to meet the needs of our patients so that their treatment is, in fact, aligned to their wishes as it straightens their teeth.

By listening to the reasons why adults put off their treatment, by recognising trials that previous patients have experienced throughout their treatment and modifying devices to minimise or eliminate these features, we are doing what we can to make the experience more comfortable, more convenient and more available to those who need it.

If you believe that you need to straighten your teeth, whether you are a teenager or an adult, then we are confident that we have a solution that meets your very unique and personal needs. Why don’t you speak with one of our experienced team members who can guide you through the options that are available to you, so that you can see for yourself the choices that await you?

What are some of the features that modern treatments possess?

One of the major points of concern for both young and adult patients is their physical appearance throughout their teeth-straightening journey. Wearing visible braces can have an impact on an individual’s self-esteem and can potentially impede on their professional ventures, depending on their line of work.

As a result, clear braces W1 are fast becoming a popular option for many who wish to straighten their teeth discreetly. There are a vast range of different clear braces W1 that you may be able to choose from, depending on the severity and type of misalignment that you are presenting with.

It is important that you speak with us at Harley Street Dental Clinic about your desire to wear clear braces W1 so that we are able to work with this from the beginning. Options for both fixed and removable braces that are clear or invisible are available, so we do encourage you to enlighten us as to other expectations you might have that would make your teeth straightening journey that much more pleasant for you as well.

Let’s look at the different options

Should you be looking for a more generic and affordable option, then your traditional front-facing fixed braces can be made from clear or white materials that resemble your natural tooth colour. Although not invisible, this clear option can be difficult to see whilst providing our dentists with the device that they need to straighten your teeth correctly. Also a number of removable aligners come under the heading of clear braces, suitable for mild to moderate misalignments.

If you are looking for truly invisible teeth straightening options, then lingual braces although not ‘clear’ are the option for you. Not suitable for every misalignment, these fixed braces are attached to the back of your teeth and are coated in a plating to protect your tongue and limit the amount of debris and bacteria that might remain there after brushing.
