We understand that many people who want straighter teeth are put off by the thought of a lengthy process, especially if they have an important occasion coming up.
Developments in dentistry mean that there are actually some fantastic options available to give patients quick results. It does of course depend on the amount of straightening required, but some of our treatments give patients a smile they are proud to show off in as little as 8 – 16 weeks.
If you are considering straightening your teeth, your dentist will begin by carefully examining your mouth and teeth so they can make a recommendation based on your individual circumstances.
For us there’s more to you than your clinical needs. We want to look after the emotional you and the financial you, too, so we take everything into account, including the timescale you are hoping for. We will also take the time to answer any questions you have so you can make an informed decision in your own time.
Your dentist may advise you to consider fast-acting fixed braces for just your front teeth, which can create results in just six months. Or they might feel you would benefit from a custom-made aligner, that has a spring and thin bar that sits over the front teeth, gently moving them into position. Whatever route you decide to go down, we would always recommend you also attend regular hygiene therapy sessions, which will help you keep your braces clean.
