Most people will associate braces with children’s or teenager’s teeth. In the UK however, more and more adults are opting for braces to improve their teeth. For patients wishing to improve the visual aspects of their teeth or aiming to make it easier to clean and maintain their natural teeth, adult braces may be a good option.
Dentists, such as at Staplehurst Dental Practice, offer a wide range of teeth straightening solutions. In Kent, braces are offered to young and old as the most effective way to achieve straighter, healthier looking teeth,
New Technology Makes Teeth Straightening Treatments Easier Than Ever
In the past, with the traditional type of braces, adults may have been put off straightening their teeth due to issues with the appearance and duration of treatment. Sporting a mouthful of metal may not be ideal for those working in professional environments. What’s more, the thought of enduring this look for 2 years or more could be even more daunting. Thankfully with more modern treatments, teeth can be straightened with more discretion, greater comfort, and in a shorter time frame than ever before.
In Kent, braces don´t have to be so conspicuous either. With Six Month Smiles, the braces are made to be discreet as they are crafted with tooth-coloured materials. With this type of treatment, results can be achieved on average in just 6 months.
The Benefits of a Beautiful Smile
Having a set of straight teeth comes with many advantages. Firstly, after teeth straightening treatment, patients may experience a confidence boost. Many people up and down the UK are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth and feel more positive about their image once this is resolved.
Having straighter teeth also makes maintaining a high standard of oral hygiene easier. This is because there are fewer hard to reach places for harmful bacteria to build up. Another health benefit is that teeth will wear more evenly over time because a more equal amount of pressure will be applied to across the teeth when chewing. Even wear helps protect the teeth from unnecessary damage that comes when one area is under more strain than another.
