Few people are lucky enough to be born with perfect teeth, and, if you weren’t, teeth straightening treatment can make a huge difference to your smile and overall health. However, many adults who have never had braces, feel like their chance for straight teeth has passed, or they are reluctant to commit to two or more years of wearing unattractive metal braces.
Modern dentistry has come a long way and there are now many options if you are looking for a more discreet way to straighten your teeth. At Cheltenham Dental Spa, we offer a wide range of cosmetic teeth straightening options including Invisalign, Incognito, Six Month Smiles and Clarity ceramic braces. Most cosmetic braces in Cheltenham are best suited for mild to moderate spacing or crowding of the teeth, and minimal bite alignment issues.
Treatment with Invisalign involves multiple clear aligners that you wear in a predetermined order to achieve the desired treatment result – each new aligner takes the adjustment of your teeth one step further. Invisalign aligners are easy to wear and can be removed for eating and brushing your teeth. Since they are transparent, nobody will know that you are undergoing dental treatment.
Incognito lingual braces
Incognito braces, also known as lingual braces, offer a invisible option for teeth straightening treatment. While lingual braces in Cheltenham use the same methods as traditional braces, they have one major difference: the brackets are fixed to the inside of the teeth and they are customised to fit each individual tooth. This means they are hidden, creating a treatment option that is as discreet as possible.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles braces reduce treatment time to around six months by concentrating only on straightening the front teeth. These braces are made of tooth-coloured brackets and wires and can be used to treat a wide variety of problems, including crowding, crossbites, overbites and gaps between teeth.
Clarity advanced ceramic brackets
Ceramic braces work in the same way as traditional braces, but the brackets are made from a clear, translucent ceramic material. Ceramic braces are very comfortable and will not harm the soft tissues in your mouth due to their slim dome-shaped design.
