Cosmetic braces and aligners to straighten adult teeth

The thought of braces makes many adults shiver. They picture traditional metal appliances that are popular with teenagers, but incompatible with a busy adult lifestyle. At Sutton Dental & Implant Clinic in Sutton Coldfield we offer a number of cosmetic orthodontic options that offer a discreet alternative to help adults straighten their teeth.


The benefits of straighter teeth

Whilst these products are referred to as cosmetic orthodontic treatments, they can also bring benefits to your dental health. Straighter teeth are usually healthier teeth, because they are easier to clean, with fewer gaps in which food particles can get trapped and plaque bacteria can build up. When your teeth are easier to clean, the chances of tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath are all reduced.

Treatment options: braces and aligners

We use a range of braces and aligners at our Sutton Coldfield clinic to straighten adults’ teeth. The essential difference is that aligners are removable, while a brace is fixed. Each have their own set of benefits and your dentist will discuss the most appropriate options for you when you come in for your initial consultation.

Here are some of the orthodontic treatments available at our Sutton Coldfield dental clinic:

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are tooth-coloured, cosmetic braces that work very quickly because they focus on your front teeth. Comprising tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets, they are not as conspicuous as metal braces, and have a considerably shorter treatment time.


Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that fit over your teeth and gently guide them into a new position. As well as being clear, the aligners are removable, meaning they have minimum impact on your everyday life.

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a single device used to treat issues with the front teeth. It gently but quickly squeezes the teeth into a better position.
