For many of us, getting a perfectly straight smile is among our top priorities, but the thought of having to wear traditional metal braces puts it on hold.
The smile is one of our most attractive features and most important in making first impressions that count, so it’s vital that we feel happy and confident showing it off. However for adults the uptake of traditional braces is low. Metal braces have to be worn for some time and are known to be associated with the ‘metal-mouth’, awkward teenager stereotype which is off-putting for adults.
If you’ve always wanted to have straighter teeth but cannot see yourself wearing braces, there are other solutions available. Advancements in orthodontics means that there are now numerous fast, effective and highly discreet teeth straightening alternatives specifically designed for adults. Invisible braces have become extremely popular among adults looking to enhance their smile without the embarrassment of wearing metal braces. Here are some of the main invisible braces treatments helping more and more people achieve their aspirations worldwide:
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Invisalign clear aligners are a highly popular treatment for adults as they are a virtually invisible removable appliance. Using medical-grade smooth plastic, the Invisalign aligner trays are custom made to fit over your teeth. The aligners will gently and gradually shift the teeth into the desired position and are changed every two weeks to get the best results.
Like Invisalign, the RX Aligners are virtually invisible, clear removable aligners. Each aligner tray moves your teeth a small amount until the required position is achieved. They use the latest digital technology to exactly fit your teeth, but they are also finished by hand and custom made for you.
Six Month Smiles
The Six Month Smiles treatment is a new teeth straightening solution which, as the name suggests, can give you the desired results in just 6 months. This invisible brace system uses very fine tooth-coloured brackets and wires to correct the teeth. However, Six Month Smiles only concentrates on the front teeth as these are the ones that are noticed most. This way you can achieve an improved smile much more quickly and more discreetly than with traditional braces.
Why choose Invisible Braces?
- Because of the clear materials used which are custom fitted to fit the contours of your teeth, most people won't even realise that you're straightening them
- Depending on the individual, invisible braces can help achieve a straight smile in as little as 6 months
- They can effectively treat a wide variety of cases, including crowding, spacing and misaligned bites
- The appliances require much less maintenance than traditional braces and can allow you to carry out daily activities with little interference
