Having crooked or uneven teeth can be a source of real embarrassment and even lead to low self-esteem and self-confidence. It can make people reluctant to smile and even to make eye contact with people and have a significant effect on their life. This is one of the reasons people opt to have orthodontic teeth straightening to improve the appearance of their smile and for peace of mind and greater self-confidence. Being happy with the way you look is really important and by using the tried and tested method of braces you can easily improve your smile.
There are many types of braces available on the market today. Traditional fixed metal braces, also known as train track braces are very effective and produce excellent results but patients often find them uncomfortable and the treatment can last a very long time Fortunately, there are many other options, each one with its own distinct advantage over the others.
For example, the Invisalign brace is more or less completely invisible. Being made form one millimetre thick clear plastic, the brace completely reduces the visual impact of a brace while straightening teeth and giving you a great smile. Other braces such as the Inman aligner are also very discreet but also have the added advantage of being very fast. In some cases, the Inman aligner has been known to produce straighter teeth in as little as ten weeks, although treatment usually lasts longer than this.
Other braces available from London W1 dentists include the Damon brace and Six Month Brace. Both of these braces offer a vastly more discreet and improved treatment than traditional braces. Find out more information about braces at your next appointment with your dentist.
