Modern cosmetic dental braces – an even smile without a long wait.
If we were to be asked which is one of the most misunderstood dental treatments currently available, it would probably have to be orthodontics (braces). A large number of people still believe that the only way to straighten teeth is to use old fashioned metal braces and they are often surprised to find out that dentistry has moved on a long way in this area.
There is now a wide range of cosmetic braces available at our Wickford dental practice that offer faster treatment times and are more comfortable too.
A good example of one of these new types of braces that we offer at the Cygnet Dental Practice is the Six Month Smiles orthodontic system. This is a popular system for people seeking to have a nicer smile in a relatively short period of time. Other orthodontic treatments are also available for patients with different needs and this will be determined during your consultation, where we will advise the most appropriate method for your particular case.
Six Month Smile
Unlike some dental braces, which attempt to straighten all of the patient’s teeth, the Six Month Smile system focuses purely on the top six front and bottom teeth, and as such, can truly be described as a ‘cosmetic’ orthodontic treatment.
No metal is used in this particular system and it is this which makes it a much less visible way of straightening teeth than traditional braces. The brackets and wires in the system are both smaller and more refined and are also made from tooth coloured materials matched closely to the shade of your own teeth. This means that your orthodontics are much more discreet and are less likely to be noticed by others as you go about your daily life.
Crooked front teeth
The fact that the Six Month Smile system focuses only on the front ‘social six’ teeth means that less force is required to move the teeth towards their correct position. This makes wearing these braces more comfortable than some other types and we feel confident that you will be pleasantly surprised at how little discomfort there is once you have adjusted to the feeling of something new in your mouth.
Depending on the severity of your misaligned teeth, this system can actually take less than the six months mentioned in its name, to work. We will be able to give you an estimated time frame for the treatment once we have examined your teeth thoroughly at your dental consultation here in Wickford.
Crooked teeth can certainly detract from an otherwise nice smile. So if you suffer from this dental problem and would like to find out more about how we can safely and comfortably straighten your teeth, please call the Cygnet Dental Practice on 01268 733078.
