Discreet ways to straighten your teeth

There are many different kinds of braces. You are probably familiar with the ‘train track’ ones, worn mostly by teenagers. As an adult, you may feel it’s too late to get your teeth straightened, or perhaps you just don’t want to go down the road of having such visible wires and brackets stuck to your teeth for two years.

Luckily, there are discreet solutions available in Luton. Invisible braces come in different forms.

Lingual braces

These are wire and bracket braces that are fixed to the back of the teeth, and so can’t been seen when you smile. They are custom-made and take about six weeks to produce. The dentist then cements them to your teeth for the course of the treatment, which can take up two years.

Tooth-coloured braces

You can have traditional braces made in clear or tooth-coloured materials to blend in with the teeth. Not entirely invisible, but certainly more discreet than metal wires. One brand that we use at Vogue Dental Care in Luton is Six Month Smiles. Not only discreet but, as the name suggests, also quick, the average treatment time being six months. This treatment focuses on the ‘social six’ front teeth.

Metal wire aligner

Again, though not totally invisible, all that can be seen is one thin metal wire across the front of the teeth. This works on the front teeth and is fast acting – it shows results in 6-18 weeks. It’s also removable and only has to be worn for 16-20 hours a day. Our dentists use the Inman aligner.

Clear aligners

If you really don’t want others to know you’re wearing invisible braces in Luton, these clear, removable aligners are the real deal. Clear aligners have no brackets or wires and are custom-made so they are comfortable and easy to maintain. You can take them out to eat, clean and even for the odd special occasion. We use Invisalign, a leading brand that has been used by 4 million patients worldwide.
