Modern orthodontics is about so much more than metal braces. As an increasing number of adults are realising the value of a beautifully aligned smile, so a wide range of subtle orthodontic appliances have been developed to produce excellent results without having to endure a mouth full of metal for months on end.
Discreet orthodontics may involve the use of subtle fixed appliances or clear, removable aligners. These treatments are suitable both for adults who turn to teeth straightening later in life and teenagers who fail to qualify for NHS orthodontics – or want a subtler alternative.
Denchic Dental Spa in North London offers a range of subtle orthodontic treatments, involving both cosmetic braces and removable aligners. Many such appliances also have considerably shorter treatment times than standard with standard orthodontics, meaning that in many cases your new smile could be a matter of months away.
If you’re thinking about straightening your teeth, it’s worth noting that the benefits are always more than just aesthetic, too. When your teeth are straighter, it’s much easier to keep them clean. Brushing and flossing becomes much less effort, with fewer hard-to-reach areas where plaque can gather.
As long as you keep up regular visits with both your dentist and hygienist, you can significantly reduce your chances of developing gum disease and tooth decay by straightening your teeth.
Popular discreet orthodontic options
The Inman Aligner is an effective method of correcting issues with the front teeth rapidly and discreetly. It has a unique design to improve issues with the top and bottom front teeth – such as buck teeth – in as little as six weeks.
Six Month Smiles
These cosmetic braces are a popular choice for people who have issues with the “social six” front teeth in the smile line, in the top or bottom jaw. Made from clear and tooth-coloured components, Six Month Smiles are designed to blend in with the natural colour of your teeth.
These clear, removable aligners can correct a wider range of orthodontic problems, and are one of the subtlest treatments around. They fit snugly over the teeth and gently guide them into a new position. You change your aligner every fortnight.
