Crooked, crowded, gappy and misaligned teeth can seriously undermine confidence and self-esteem and potentially affect the personal and social life of many teenagers and adults. Teeth straightening treatments are nowadays more accessible than ever, but many adults do not wish to spend a year or two wearing unattractive metal brackets and wires.
Luckily, this concern has led to the development of many discreet teeth straightening solutions that will leave adults with beautifully straight teeth and confidence to smile more. Adult braces in St John’s Wood are lightweight, subtle and effective. They are widely available at many dental practices, including Aura Dental. Each patient can choose the right treatment based on their dental and lifestyle needs.
The Inman aligner is a simple, yet effective, teeth straightening treatment. It is designed to treat problems affecting the front teeth, such as mild crowding, rotated teeth and crossbites – where one or more of the top teeth bite down on the inside of the lower teeth. Unlike other types of adult braces in St John’s Wood that may take several months, straight teeth can be achieved with the Inman aligner in as little as 6 weeks.
Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening treatment, consisting of a series of transparent, invisible, plastic aligners. Invisalign aligners are custom-made with the aid of 3D technology and help move teeth into their desired positions within a specific time frame. The aligners have to be changed every 2 weeks or so and they are replaced by the next set in the series. Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating and brushing, but they have to be worn for at least 22 hours per day for effective treatment.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles braces are tooth-coloured braces and wires appropriate for correcting gaps as well as crooked and crowded teeth.They are very similar to conventional braces, since the mechanism for moving the teeth is the same for both treatments. However, unlike metal braces, Six Month Smiles braces only focus on the front teeth without altering a patient’s bite. Since treatment can be completed in only six months, they are ideal for patients who want to have teeth straightened ready for a special occasion.
