Dental tips, news and insights
Are you shy or embarrassed about showing your less than straight teeth in public? If you are an adult who missed out on teeth straightening treatment as a child, it is never too late. Teeth straightening is about more than just aesthetics.
Poorly aligned teeth can affect your oral health, being harder to keep clean and more likely to develop cavities, decay and uneven wear.
Modern dental treatments offer many discreet teeth straightening options for self-conscious adults.
At Parkfield Dental Practice, it is now possible to correct misaligned teeth, close gaps and correct your bite without using unattractive metal braces.
Our Smile Designer in Didsbury, will guide you through our various treatments for discreet teeth straightening and help you determine which one is the best for your individual needs and lifestyle.
Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic dentistry system that employs traditional techniques to align the front teeth.
However, unlike traditional metal braces, we can use tooth-coloured brackets and wires to gradually straighten your teeth. This means your braces will more easily blend into the background of your teeth.
This treatment option is ideal for patients who do not have serious misalignment or bite problems, but would like to improve the appearance of their teeth.
Six Months Smiles offers results- as the name suggests- in as little as 6 months.
Invisalign straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of transparent aligners, which gradually move your teeth into position.
The clear braces are made of a smooth and almost invisible plastic, which is formed into moulds that fit tightly over your teeth.
You will be provided with a new set of aligners about every 2 weeks, until your treatment is complete.
Invisalign aligners are removable, therefore you can take them out to eat and brush your teeth. However, they must be worn for at least 22 hours per day for effective results.
Finally, with the removable Invisalign trays, it may also be possible to use them to whiten your teeth after your treatment has completed.
