Change your smile and outlook on life with braces in Colchester

Updated: Nov 22, 2019

Let’s face it: we live in a world that prioritises perfection. How we look and how well we groom ourselves has become important, thanks to social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.

Humans are a naturally imperfect species; we all have our flaws, some of which we have hang-ups about. There are certain aspects about ourselves that we have to live with, but walking through life with embarrassingly crooked teeth is not one of those things.Braces in Colchester are now available for anyone looking to improve their smile by having their teeth straightened.

Gain confidence and increase your self-esteem with a straightening aid fitted by our experienced dentists – there are several different types of orthodontic devices from which to choose. Whether you have children going through adolescence or are a fully-fledged adult, we have braces that are suitable for you.

There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to braces

We live in a changing world with ever advancing technology, and that includes modern orthodontics. Less than 50 years ago, a person wanting straight teeth had one option available, metal braces with large brackets that were uncomfortable to wear and noticeable. Sure, braces were effective in what they could achieve, but not what you want to be seen wearing as a self-conscious teenager or adult for an extended period.

Since their initial introduction to society, however, there have been several other developments and upgrades to the archetypal metal braces.

No two people have the same dental issues, which means that methods for treatment from one person to the next vary, even if only slightly.

In this article, we will take a look at some of the more popular types of braces in Colchester that we offer our clients.

Fastbraces: it’s in the name

Aside from their appearance, a common complaint about regular braces is that they work slowly, meaning you have to wear them for longer than you would like, for at least one or two years. With Fastbraces, you can achieve more or less the same results in half the time.

Unlike metal braces, that work in two stages: first aligning the crown of the tooth, followed by the re-positioning of the root, Fastbraces straighten your teeth with triangular-shaped brackets and unique wiring that start to align the root of your teeth from the start.

ClearCorrect: the joy of invisible braces

If you are looking for alternative braces in Colchester that are removable and practically invisible, ClearCorrect might be a more suitable option for your needs and wants.

The mechanics for straightening teeth with ClearCorrect are also different from traditional methods. Using custom-made aligners that you can slip in and out of your mouth, your teeth are gradually made straight a few at a time.

Aside from the invisible nature, people enjoy ClearCorrect because they can remove their plates when they need to eat or brush their teeth, meaning there is no need for you to adjust your lifestyle around your braces.

It is never too late to attain a scintillating smile with us!
