If you’ve always wished for perfectly aligned, straighter teeth, you’re not alone. As the appearance of teeth has become more of a focus in the media in recent years, an increasing number of UK adults are investing in fixing their crooked teeth.
Fortunately now there are numerous ways that specialists can help you achieve a healthier and more attractive looking smile. If you were previously put off by the thought of having to wear metal braces, there are now various ‘invisible braces’ available which can straighten teeth faster and without being so noticeable.
Here are some of the common concerns adults have about teeth straightening treatments, which these innovative invisible brace treatments can remedy:
1. Only teenagers wear braces
Adult orthodontic treatments are becoming more and more popular, especially with the availability of invisible braces. Remember, it’s never too late to straighten teeth and achieve the smile you want!
2. Everyone will be able to tell that I’m wearing them
Unlike traditional braces of previous years with obvious metal brackets, invisible braces are highly subtle and are designed to blend in with your teeth. Clear, removable aligner treatments such as Invisalign and RX Aligners, are virtually invisible and are customised to perfectly fit each individual wearer. Other invisible braces, including Six Month Smiles, use very fine brackets and wires to shape your smile without having to wear bulky metal braces for an extended period of time.
3. They will be uncomfortable
Because invisible braces are manufactured individually and are tailored to your mouth, they’ll fit more comfortably and won’t interfere with your day-to-day routine. Many people fear the discomfort associated with metal braces, however these advanced teeth straightening treatments won’t be so cumbersome in the mouth or rub like traditional brackets and wires.
4. I can’t go to events
A common concern for adults is that they won’t look as good at important events and so delay having treatment. The smile is a key feature for making brilliant first impressions, however your braces are an investment in a better smile for the long term, so don’t be put off! If you are worried about your treatment being noticeable, Invisalign and RX Aligners are removable and can be taken out for a couple of hours for special events.
5. I’ll get food caught in my braces
Again, since invisible braces can be removable they will not interfere with your diet. You can simply take them off when eating to avoid getting food caught in your appliance. For invisible treatments such as Six Month Smiles, you may just want to be a bit careful when eating hard, crunchy or chewy foods. However these braces are only fixed to the front teeth, meaning that good oral health will be easier to maintain than with traditional braces.
6. Teeth straightening treatments are too expensive
Investing in invisible braces is an investment in gaining improved oral health and a better smile in a faster and more convenient way. We work with the specialist finance provider Dental Finance to offer a range of finance plans enabling you to spread the cost of your invisible braces treatment, very often on an interest free basis. This allows you to pay for your treatment in more flexible, manageable instalments. For a quote, all you need to do is complete a simple application and we will normally have an answer for you the same day.
It will take too long
Whereas traditional metal braces will give you the desired results in one to three years, invisible braces are a perfect solution for adults as they work in a matter of months. Invisible braces are subtle and efficient, offering predictable straightening results.
At Riverside Dental Spa we’ll put together a personalised plan which will make the ongoing treatment process as efficient and accommodating to your daily lifestyle as possible.
