The main thing that puts people off getting their teeth straightened is the idea of having to wear unattractive metal brackets and wires over their teeth for a long period of time. It is true that this kind of brace is still the most effective for complex alignment issues, but when it comes to what most adults want straightening out, there are invisible braces in Luton that can do the job.
There are several different kinds of invisible braces in Luton, and some are more invisible than others, but the main idea is that they are far more discreet and blend in with the teeth rather than obscuring them. Various dentists in Luton offer a range of invisible braces, including Vogue Dental Care.
Most also offer a free consultation, or take the cost of the consultation off the price of treatment once patients have signed up for it, so it is worth shopping around.
Here are some kinds of invisible braces in Luton to ask about during a consultation. They are all slightly different in regard to what teeth they straighten and how, and also how they affect people’s lifestyles.
Six Month Smiles
A smaller, more discreet version of traditional bracket and wire braces. The brackets are smaller and made of clear ceramic. The single wire is finer and has a tooth-coloured coating. These braces work on the front 6-8 teeth only and take an average of 6 months.
Mouth guard-style clear plastic aligners that cover the teeth like a second skin. They have pressure points built into them that press on the teeth to move. Patients wear a series of them over the course of a year, on average. They are taken out for meals and for cleaning, which many people find very helpful.
The Inman Aligner
Two spring-loaded bows sandwich the front teeth and pressure them into alignment. Great for the very front teeth. Treatment times are 6-18 weeks. It also doubles up as a retainer.
Everyone must wear a retainer after completing their treatment to keep their teeth aligned while the bone around them settles down.
