With so many people concerned about crooked teeth and desiring a straighter smile, adult braces are becoming more and more popular. There’s even a few celebrities getting involved; Fearne Cotton has recently flashed her lower braces on Instagram, while One Direction’s Niall Horan and Holly Willoughby have also publicly undergone treatment in the past.
However, adult braces are not just for the rich and famous, there are numerous systems available that make a straight smile accessible to everyone, whatever your budget or lifestyle. At Evolve Dentistry in Portishead, Bristol, we offer a wide range of choices so there is bound to be one that suits you.
For many people, an invisible option is a must. If you’re conscious about wonky teeth the last thing you want to do is draw more attention to them, and we completely understand that. Adult braces tend to be geared around this need, so there are plenty of options available to you such as Invisalign – a series of removable clear aligners – and Incognito, which is fitted to the back of your teeth.
The speed of treatment is also a popular concern, and that is something we have solutions to as well. Six Month Smiles and the Damon Appliance are both fast systems that are fixed to the teeth and are not removable. Both of these options, along with the Inman Aligner and Ceramic Brackets are also more cost effective options, so if budget is a factor your solution could lie in one of these!
As with anything, there are pros and cons to each system and the answer will depend not only on your priorities but also on which one is clinically suitable for you. The best thing to do is call us on 01275 842550to arrange a free consultation where we can discuss the options available to you, allowing you to decide from there what you think will work best with your lifestyle.
