If you have teeth which are crooked, spaced too widely or crowded, you may feel self-conscious about your smile. Wonky teeth can make you feel awkward in social situations, perhaps even making you shy away from having your photograph taken. If you have considered braces but dismissed the idea because you thought they would be unsightly, time-consuming, inconvenient or uncomfortable, then you may like to hear about a new range of braces. Burnham is home to The Dental Surgery Burnham and we are proud to offer techniques which will revolutionise your opinion of corrective treatment.
The discreet approach
Most people do not want to have to cope with a mouth full of metal while they have their teeth straightened. Luckily, you no longer have to, as modern methods are faster, more comfortable and less obtrusive than ever before. We offer braces in Burnham to fit into your lifestyle and give you the smile you dream of.
The Invisalign system uses a series of almost invisible clear plastic trays that are individually made to fit your mouth. They are changed every two weeks to gently guide your teeth into a new position, and are removeable so you can take them out for eating and cleaning. The whole process is very gentle and the aligner acts as a retainer once the teeth are in the correct place. Another option if you are looking for braces in Burnham is the Six Month Smiles technique, which uses very discreet clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires. It works on the front six teeth, which are the ones most visible when you smile so, although it cannot correct serious misalignments, it is a great option to rapidly improve your appearance.
Why have straighter teeth?
Aside from the obvious benefits of a more attractive smile, straighter teeth are also healthier. This is because there are fewer gaps in which plaque can accumulate, so they are easier to clean, helping avoid the risk of decay or gum problems. Having braces in Burnham can improve your dental health as well as providing a real boost to your self-esteem.
