Many people in the UK are unhappy with how their teeth look. The most popular cosmetic treatment in the UK is teeth whitening. This is because teeth whitening is fast-acting and cost-effective. Cosmetic treatments can give you a big boost in confidence, which could open many doors in your social life or professional life.
Teeth straightening can also transform the look and feel or your smile. Advances in dental technology means that there’s more to seeing the orthodontist in Hampshire than being fitted with a set of metal brackets and wires. Here at Winchester Orthodontics in Hampshire, we can offer a wide range of treatments that can fit discreetly into your lifestyle.
At your orthodontist in Hampshire, Invisalign clear aligners are used to straighten teeth without the use of metal or wires. Traditional braces are the most tried and tested method of teeth straightening but come with a long list of issues. They are notoriously uncomfortable to wear and many adults would prefer not to have to deal with going about their daily life with a mouth full of metal.
Invisalign offers discreet teeth straightening. It uses a series of custom-moulded plastic trays. Each one is slightly different in shape from the next. This slight change in shape applies gentle pressure to the teeth, adjusting them over time.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign can be removed when it comes to meal times and when it’s time to clean your teeth. The trays are also almost completely invisible when they are in use, meaning they don’t disrupt your appearance.
Tooth-coloured fixed braces
If you have a more serious misalignment, then discreet fixed braces could suit you better. Fixed braces have come a long way since the days of unsightly metal appliances in the mouth. Our discreet fixed braces are manufactured from tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets, which make them much less conspicuous. We use modern computer imaging technology to design and produce the braces, so they are uniquely fitted to the contours of your mouth.
