Help for crooked teeth

Woman having her crooked teeth fixedA beautiful smile can light up a face and give a person confidence to face the world. However, if teeth are crooked, spaced too widely or crowded then it can have a negative impact on the appearance. The best time to realign teeth is during childhood when there is a mixture of baby and permanent teeth, but today, many adults are seeking treatment. For people in Kent, braces used to mean having a mouth full of uncomfortable, unsightly metal for months on end. Fortunately, this is no longer the case. Having braces in Kent is now a much quicker, less obtrusive and more gentle process due to a range of new braces.

A discreet solution

Most of us have a busy life and this includes interacting with a variety of people, professionally and socially. Generally, this is a more enjoyable experience if there is no anxiety over whether braces are visible. Dentists such as Staplehurst Dental Practice offer braces in Kent for adults to fit into their busy lifestyles and give them a smile to be proud of. It is even possible to have a new smile in around half a year. The Six Month Smiles technique uses clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires that do not stand out. This makes it a much more subtle approach than traditional metal appliances.

A new smile in six months?

For many patients in Kent, braces need to work fast. This might be because of an upcoming engagement such as a wedding or important event. Or it may be that they simply do not have time to consider undergoing treatment for a year or more. If the teeth are not severely out-of-place then it really is possible to have straighter teeth quickly with the Six Month Smiles system. This is a fixed appliance, which means that the brackets are bonded to the teeth. It focuses on the front teeth, which are the ones which are visible when people smile. People who have needed braces in Kent and used this procedure have corrected misaligned bites, poorly spaced and crowded teeth. As well as being fast, the Six Month Smiles method can be cost-effective as the treatment time is shorter.
