There are a number of reasons why an adult might have crooked teeth or a bad bite, and choose to receive teeth straightening treatment. Genetics is a major cause of many dental problems such as underbites and overbites. Moreover, prolonged habits during childhood, such as biting your lips or sucking your thumb can cause the front teeth to become crooked as well.
At Liverpool Smile Studio, we appreciate that most adults who seek teeth straightening treatment would rather not have metal brackets and wires. Modern metal braces are lightweight and effective, but they are still visible and this can be a deterrent factor for adults who wish to continue smiling throughout treatment. For this reason, we offer discreet braces in Liverpool. These braces are specifically designed for adults who want to straighten their teeth without altering their lifestyle.
Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening method that allows patients to have their teeth straightened with the use of custom-made, removable, plastic aligners. Alternatively known as ‘invisible braces’ because of their discreet design, Invisalign aligners are made with the help of 3D-imaging technology for enhanced comfort and precision. Patients will have to go through a series of aligners in order to help move their teeth into their correct positions.
Clear aligners can be an effective, simple and comfortable form of teeth straightening treatment. However, they are only suitable for people who are disciplined enough to wear them for at least 20-22 hours per day.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is a teeth straightening treatment created to replicate the effectiveness of braces, without the appearance and treatment time associated with them. Six Month Smiles braces consist of tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets that can be adjusted quickly and easily. Because this treatment focuses only on the front teeth and does not affect your bite, overall treatment time can take only six months or less.
