At Sutton Dental &Implant Clinic in Sutton Coldfield, braces can be a surprisingly quick and discreet treatment that will improve your smile’s aesthetic appeal while repositioning your teeth so that they’re easier to keep clean. Our contemporary dental appliances are made of low-visibility materials, so they don’t attract unwanted attention to your treatment. And with precisely-customised treatment, your teeth can be straightened in a relatively short amount of time.
For adults in Sutton Coldfield, braces made of transparent or tooth-coloured materials help to minimise the potential embarrassment of wearing a realignment appliance. At social events or business meetings, your braces may go unnoticed by all but the keenest observers.
There are several modern options for straightening your teeth. Which one is most appropriate will depend on the complexity of your situation, and the results you want to achieve. Your dentist will have an in-depth discussion with you about the available options.
Variety of methods
Braces like Six Month Smiles are affixed to the front of the teeth. They blend in with the appearance of your teeth, so that they’re not too noticeable when you open your mouth. Focussing on the position of the front teeth, this treatment can typically achieve good results, as its name suggests, in around six months.
With Invisalign, you will wear a plastic aligner over your teeth. It is transparent, and can be removed when you brush your teeth and during meal times. Around every two weeks, you will be given a new aligner with a slightly different shape. As you wear this series of aligners, usually for around 18 months, your teeth are guided into new positions. This popular treatment is customised for your comfort.
These are just two of the options your dentist may mention when you come in to discuss your braces in Sutton Coldfield.
Time and results
Improving the position of your teeth with braces in Sutton Coldfield takes time. And after you’ve stopped wearing the braces, you’ll probably need to wear a retainer at night, to secure the teeth in their new positions. But once this is all done, you’ll enjoy the enhanced appearance and optimised function of your teeth for many years to come.
