These traditional braces are fixed to the teeth and can’t be removed during the treatment process. Some people like to have colour on their metal braces. Your orthodontist will tell you which colours are available and they can change the colours each time you visit. They are cost-effective and can provide great changes to the position of the teeth.
Virtually invisible, clear braces can have advantages over traditional braces and aligners. They are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with truly spectacular smile and facial results.
Available from skilled dentists such as Enhancedental in Leeds, clear braces combine the best of traditional braces and invisible aligners to deliver a discreet treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth.
Lingual braces are placed on the inside surface of the teeth and as such are truly invisible. They work in the same way as traditional metal braces, just the other way around. They take a little longer to adapt to and can be a bit more expensive, due to their customised manufacture. They provide a great option for patients who, for whatever reason, do not want anyone to know they are undergoing teeth straightening treatment.
Invisalign clear aligners
Invisalign are clear and virtually undetectable to the naked eye. In comparison to traditional braces, they are much more comfortable to wear and cause less irritation. Invisalign involves a series of clear plastic aligners which are custom-moulded to fit your mouth. The aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a beautiful, straight looking smile. They are also removable for eating, brushing and flossing. They also work very quickly, as you can have results in as little as six months.
Although not invisible like Invisalign, the Inman Aligner completes all movements using just one single aligner. This means you don’t need to change your aligners every other week. With the Inman Aligner specialising in correcting dental problems with just the front teeth, this treatment could be perfect if you want to get a straighter smile without wanting a full set of braces or Invisalign aligners.
