While traditional metal Braces are capable of treating a wide variety of bite and teeth misalignment issues, they are no longer the only option for effective teeth straightening. There are now a number of subtler alternatives to metal brackets and wires for those who wish to straighten their teeth discreetly.
At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we want to ensure you receive the very best results and this starts with recommending the right teeth straightening treatment for you. Our well-trained dentists will examine your teeth carefully and help you decide whether invisible braces in Harley Street are the right option for you. Our patients can choose from various treatments including lingual braces, Invisalign, and clear ceramic braces.
Invisalign is a discreet way to straighten your teeth using a series of custom-made, virtually undetectable aligners. All you have to do is change your aligners according to your dentist’s recommendations every 7-10 days. Invisalign aligners are comfortable and can be removed any time to eat and brush your teeth. While they can correct mild to moderate dental problems, they are not ideal for severely misaligned teeth. Your dentist might recommend regular braces as an alternative.
Lingual braces are very similar in functionality to metal braces. The most significant difference is the absence of metal supports in front of the teeth. These braces are fitted to the rear of your teeth and not in the front. This effectively hides the metal brackets and wires, even as they effectively move your teeth into their correct position. Unlike with traditional braces, the brackets for lingual braces are customised for each individual case. Lingual braces can correct a vast number of dental problems, including crowded and rotated teeth.
Clear braces are very similar to metal braces, except the brackets are made from porcelain, which blends in with the natural colour of the teeth. Clear braces are almost invisible and are often a popular treatment option for adults.
