Short-term orthodontic treatment is an excellent option for patients who require mild orthodontic correction. At our Essex dental practice we offer a number of short-term orthodontic products that are, in most cases, as discreet as they are rapid.
Orthodontics is now seen as standard for children and teenagers in the UK, but at our Essex clinic we are also seeing an increasing number of adults who are interested in straightening their teeth. It goes without saying that most of them have no desire to wear obvious metal braces for extended time periods. That’s why we are proud to offer a number of discreet orthodontic options.
The best treatment for you will depend on your clinical need (the type and amount of correction required) and your personal preference. When you come into our clinic for a consultation, we will perform a complete clinical examination and will then recommend the best treatments to suit your needs.
Among the fast and discreet orthodontic treatments at our Essex practice are:
This single-use clear aligner is used to correct adult relapse and issues with crowded or protruding front teeth. It is very discreet and won’t be noticed by most people in everyday life, and typically only takes a few months for treatment to be complete.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces that work in as little as half a year. They are able to move your teeth quickly because they focus on the front six to eight teeth – those on show when you smile. Six Month Smiles comprise tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires and clear brackets, meaning they blend into your mouth.
