A beautiful and healthy smile is so important; however, many adults would like to avoid traditional orthodontic braces because they are unsightly, costly and time consuming. Instead many people will try to hide or ignore their smiles… but this is not sustainable.
Don’t live with a fear of smiling, there is a simple solution… cosmetic orthodontics! It’s never too late to get the smile you always wanted.
WHAT IS COSMETIC ORTHODONTICS?
Cosmetic Orthodontics is an alternative to traditional orthodontics which only straightens the front teeth and it is a less visible method of correcting crooked or out of place teeth. The goal of improving both the appearance of a smile and the long-term health of teeth, mouth and gums is very achievable. It is a much better alternative to veneers which can damage your teeth and combined with dental whitening results in straight, white teeth.
WHY GET COSMETIC ORTHODONTICS?
Cosmetic orthodontic treatment is an effective way to straighten teeth in a less obvious, and often quicker method than traditional orthodontics! Cosmetic orthodontics focus on the most visible upper and lower front 6 teeth and can often be completed within 4-6 months!
BENEFITS OF COSMETIC ORTHODONTICS?
Cosmetic Orthodontic treatments are less visible or more natural looking than a metal brace and so do not cause the embarrassment that might be felt from a traditional brace. Therefore, you can maintain your usual lifestyle with them, without the restrictions of trying to hide obvious metal brackets in your mouth.
The process takes 4-6 months to complete, which is a huge reduction in time compared to traditional orthodontics which takes on average 18 months to two years. After that, you wear either a fixed or removeable retainer, whilst you sleep, in order to maintain the position of the teeth. So, the process is not only quick, but it also lasts forever!
TYPES OF COSMETIC ORTHODONTICS?
CFast treatment is fixed cosmetic orthodontic method. It is the same process as traditional braces; however, it uses clear brackets and tooth coloured wires which look natural against the teeth. The method is discrete and focuses on straightening front teeth.
Smile TRU treatment is a non-fixed cosmetic orthodontic method. It involves a series of clear alignment trays (similar to retainers) which you progress through in two-week increments. This gradually corrects the position of teeth throughout the entire mouth.
