Super-Charge your Smile with Cosmetic Braces at Epsom Dental Centre 

 Many people in the UK want straighter teeth, but don’t want the traditional train-track braces that are usually needed. Fortunately, there’s a way to achieve a winning smile without them.

What are the Benefits of Straighter Teeth?

Straighter teeth can improve your confidence by giving you the smile that you have always wanted. According to research, 61% of us in the UK have been attracted to someone based on their smile alone, so it’s not surprising that many of us want to make the most of our smile.

Not only that, but there are proven health benefits to straighter teeth. Crooked teeth tend to overlap, creating difficult to clean spaces which are a haven for bacteria and plaque. Straighter teeth are easier to clean, so they tend to be healthier. Healthier teeth usually mean that less dental work is needed, so you can actually save on dental fees in the long run. Straight save you money, improve your health and boost your confidence!

What are Cosmetic Braces?

When you think of braces, the image that probably comes to mind is one of the traditional metal wired braces, commonly known as “train-track” braces. These braces are typically made of stainless steel and have a rubber band which holds the wires in place.

Braces are proven to be the most reliable method for straightening teeth, but while traditional braces are excellent at solving structural flaws in the teeth and jaw, many people feel uncomfortable at the thought of having to wear such obvious braces for a long period of time.

If you want straighter teeth, but don’t want train-tracks, then you should talk to your dentist about cosmetic braces. Cosmetic braces are an alternative to train-track braces that are designed to be much less noticeable. There are a range of different cosmetic braces available, one of the most popular are Six Month Smile braces.

Why Choose Six Month Smiles Braces?

Six Month Smile braces retain all of the advantages of traditional metal braces, while at the same time being much more appealing cosmetically.

Unlike train-track braces, Six Month Smiles braces use brackets and wires that are coloured to match your teeth. This makes them difficult, if not impossible, to spot during everyday conversation. Six Month Smiles have the added benefit of being fixed semi-permanently, which means that they correct your teeth quicker than typical removable orthodontic systems, with an average treatment time of just six months.

Six Month Smiles provide braces that are comfortable, appointments that are fast and painless, and a solution to crooked teeth that is typically cheaper than train-tracks, aligner therapy or veneers. Their trademarked Lucid Lok brackets and tooth-coloured wires are designed to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a gorgeous smile.

What about Invisalign?

Invisalign are an alternative type of cosmetic braces that work differently to conventional braces. A series of translucent aligners fit exactly over your teeth, moving them slowly to the correct position, without being noticeable in day-to-day conversation.

If your dentist thinks that you are suitable for aligners, then they will take some rubber impressions of your teeth, which will then be sent to the invisalign scanning centre. They can then digitise your teeth and produce a video to will show the end result of the process. If you are happy with the projected outcome, then a unique set of aligners will be manufactured for you.

Invisalign treatment typically includes around twenty aligners, each worn for about two weeks. When you are finished with an aligner, you can discard it and insert a new one.
