Why teeth straightening no longer needs to mean a mouth full of metal

12 April 2016

When you think about teeth straightening treatment or orthodontics, do you picture metal train-track braces? Most people do, but most people are ill-informed. At Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent we offer a number of far more discreet ways in which adults and teenagers alike can achieve the straighter teeth they’ve always dreamt of.

Discretion is key

In the selfie age, it’s not hard to see why people looking for teeth straightening treatment might balk at the thought of having to wear traditional metal braces for long periods of time. Whilst they are very effective, they are also very obvious, and have a habit of interfering with everyday life.

We understand these concerns at our Kent dental practice, but we also know the health benefits of teeth straightening treatment. Straighter teeth are generally healthier teeth – so long as you visit the dentist and hygienist regularly, and have a good oral healthcare routine at home. That’s why we are proud to offer discreet orthodontic treatment using either tooth-coloured braces or removable clear aligners.

When you come to our Kent clinic for an orthodontic consultation, your practitioner will examine your teeth and your bite – the way the jaws meet together. They will then discuss the pros and cons of all relevant treatment options, so that you can make an educated choice.

Among the subtle teeth straightening treatments at Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent are:

Six Month Smiles

These tooth-coloured cosmetic braces are designed both to work quickly, and to blend in with the natural colour of your teeth. They focus on the front teeth that show when you flash a smile.

Invisalign

Invisalign comprises a series of clear, removable aligners that fit over your teeth to guide them into a better position. We also offer treatment with Invisalign i7 (for minor correction) and Invisalign Teen, specifically designed for teenagers’ teeth.
