There are many different types of braces to straighten your teeth and create a beautiful, neatly aligned smile. Neatly aligned teeth are healthy and easier to look after. They are less prone to dental health complications and they allow you to smile happily and confidently in front of the world. If you are thinking about straightening your teeth then visit our dentist in Cheam at Cheam Village Dental Studios. Our dentist in Cheam can explain the different types of braces that are available at our practice and carry out a smile assessment to let you know which ones are suitable for you.
The different types of fixed braces
Fixed metal braces have been used in dentistry for a very long time and are the gold standard in orthodontic treatment. They are suitable for all types of orthodontic needs and create beautiful, long-lasting results. Fixed metal braces can be used for patients of all ages. They are more discreet than they once were a few decades ago and they are able to help achieve the most stunning results. If you are reluctant to have fixed metal braces and are looking for a more discreet version to tackle your complex orthodontic needs then you can speak to our dentist in Cheam and find out about ceramic braces. These are more expensive than fixed metal braces, however they have tooth coloured components which means they are less visible in the mouth. The components are still the same, therefore the process is highly efficient for straightening your teeth.
Lingual braces are also fixed to your teeth, but for further subtlety they are attached to the back surface of your teeth, which means they cannot be seen from the outside. Lingual braces are also very good at correcting complex orthodontic issues and although they are more expensive than ceramic braces and metal braces they help you straighten your teeth at your complete discretion. They are ideally suited for those who do not want to draw unwanted attention to their mouth.
Invisalign removable aligners
If you are unsure about fixed braces then you can find out about removable options. Here at Cheam Village Dental Studio we are pleased to offer you Invisalign as an alternative to traditional or fixed orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is a modern method of teeth straightening that uses clear thermoplastic aligners that are worn over your teeth. These are designed and manufactured using modern digital dental technology. They are highly convenient and can be taken out of your mouth as required. They can tackle a range of orthodontic issues in a short period of time with an average treatment taking between 6 and 12 months. Invisalign aligners are almost invisible when they are in your mouth offering you comfort, convenience and discretion.
