How to Straighten your Smile in 2018!

Published: 18 January 2018

Are you fed up with hiding your smile because you feel insecure about your teeth? The time has come to regain your lost confidence in your smile and embrace 2018 with the whitest, straightest, most beautiful smile ever! Here are some ways our dentists at Clyde Munro can help you achieve the smile of your dreams…

There are four main types of braces you could consider to have your teeth perfectly aligned.

  1. Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are perfect options if we need to correct severe problems. This is a fixed option that gradually and gently moves teeth into ideal positions. However, they are more discreet than traditional metal braces as we are now able to use tooth-coloured brackets and wires (instead of the silver-coloured ones) that blend with the colour and look of your own teeth so seamlessly that they are barely noticeable.

  1. Lingual braces

Lingual braces are one of the newest additions to the orthodontic family and are fast becoming a highly requested option. Although they are just like traditional metal braces, the brackets are attached to the back of the teeth, leaving them literally invisible from the outside! This is a great technique for mild cases of misalignment.

  1. Invisalign

Invisalign is another excellent alternative to metal braces that were initially used to correct mild cases of misalignment. However, the technology behind the system has evolved so much that it is now a treatment that can fix a host of misalignment issues, making them available to a wider cross-section of patients than ever before.

Invisalign is a set of custom-made, clear, plastic aligners that cover all of the teeth. They are removable, which gives you full freedom to eat and drink whatever you want, and they need to be replaced around every two weeks as the alignment of your teeth gradually changes.

  1. Short-term orthodontics

If you fancy the idea of having a new smile in just a few months, then short-term orthodontics will grant your wish. These orthodontic systems are an accelerated option that aligns the teeth in an average of only six months using extremely thin wires and tooth-coloured brackets that make the braces much less noticeable! It is a budget-friendly treatment that focuses on the teeth that show when you smile, which is why the treatment times are much shorter than any other option.

If you would like to straighten your smile in 2018 then we will be able to help you find the best solution to suit your lifestyle whilst correcting your misalignment problems.
