Adult braces in Colchester are your best bet for straight teeth

In recent years, an increasing number of people have gathered the confidence to undergo teeth straightening as adults. Your teeth are so important to your wellbeing and a great smile can work wonder for your confidence. Instead of settling for a lower quality of life, maybe it is time to consider adult braces in Colchester at Hello Dental.

What are my treatment options?

Braces have come a long way since the days of metal brackets and wires. At Hello Dental, we use the most advanced teeth-straightening systems available, such as Fastbraces and Smilelign, to ensure that your crooked, gapped and misaligned teeth are fixed in no time. Braces in Colchester are destined for busy adults who do not wish to spend months (or even years) on end to achieve a straighter and healthier smile. Both these treatments are tried and tested with success among our patients.

How long will my treatment take?

The average time frame an adult will wear braces in Colchester can be anywhere between 3 months (Fastbraces) to 2 years (Smilelign), depending on the type of treatment you choose and the oral problem you are addressing.

What foods are off limits?

Depending on the treatment you choose, some modifications to your diet may be required. If you opt for Fastbraces, your dentist will encourage you not to eat chewy, sticky and hard foods, since they can break your brackets. However, if you opt for Smilelign you can have whatever foods you like, since these braces are not attached to the teeth and can be removed when you want to eat. However, be careful not to keep them out of your mouth too long, since you may end up compromising your entire treatment.

What’s next?

Whether you are considering Fastbraces or a more invisible alternative to braces such as Smilelign, only an experienced dentist has the training, and expert knowledge to be able to offer you the best treatment available. To help you decide which treatment is right for your needs and lifestyle, book a consultation with a Hello Dental dentist today. We are here to answer your questions.
