What is teeth straightening?
Lots of people have crowded or crooked teeth, or their teeth don’t meet correctly when they bite. These problems can mean the teeth are more likely to become damaged or put a strain on jaw muscles. This is in addition to any cosmetic concerns regarding the appearance of the teeth.
Teeth straightening is an cosmetic dentistry procedure used to correct the position of your teeth.
What is the procedure used for?
Orthodontic braces are the main way most teeth are straightened, but nowadays there are multiple types of braces and other options available. The options can tailor to your needs, for example, speed of treatment, budget, aesthetic look plus others.
Who is the treatment suitable for?
Most people are suitable for the majority of orthodontic treatments, but please book a consultation with our dentist to discuss your requirements in full.
What happens during the procedure?
Your exact treatment will depend on the problems with your teeth. The length of any treatment is usually between 3-18 months.
We will discuss your exact requirements as part of our consultation, but we offer a range of treatments including:
This treatment straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
Cfast is a simple, gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that corrects alignment issues with the top and bottom front six teeth, and can level and round out the arches, thus satisfying the needs of the vast majority of adult patients who seek orthodontic treatment.
This is single appliance that can be removed and inserted easily. It can be used to quickly align teeth either as a standalone treatment, or before aesthetic or restorative treatment.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is a clear brace that's designed to straighten your front teeth in around six months.
What are the side effects or risks?
Again, this depends on the treatment you receive, but generally the risks associated with cosmetic dentistry are minimal. Side effects can include a small amount of discomfort, swelling or pain from the anaesthetic, but your dentist will work with you to minimise any discomfort.
