Confidence boosting treatments with braces in Colchester

Having straight teeth can be a huge source of pride for a person. If you’re happy with what you see when you look in the mirror, you will feel more confident and, as we know, confidence is key to unlocking many of life’s doors.

Here at Hello Dental in Colchester, we believe that you will be able to find a teeth straightening solution that will fit in with your everyday life. In the past, teeth straightening treatments like traditional braces have gotten in the way of a person’s lifestyle.

At Hello Dental in Colchester, braces have evolved with the help of modern technology and dental techniques. More modern materials are being used in the manufacture of braces, and innovations like aligners have made getting treatment easier than ever.

Fastbraces for straighter teeth

Here in Colchester, braces treatment can take less time than in the past. The revolutionary Fastbraces system can straighten your teeth in just 3-12 months.

The treatment can correct a range of problems like misaligned, gappy, crowded teeth, and uneven bites. The treatment typically works 50% faster than traditional braces because of its unique design. They do this by beginning to move the tooth’s root from day one of treatment with a triangular bracket rather than the traditional square bracket.

Fastbraces come in two different main forms. Fastbraces Classic Series was the first to arrive in the UK and Fastbraces Turbo Series are also now available.

Fastbraces can be made from traditional metal materials, a combination of metal and tooth-coloured materials or completely tooth-coloured ceramics and clear plastic brackets. This helps the patient to have treatment without having to live with the appearance of a mouth full of metal.

ClearCorrect: the clear alternative to traditional braces

ClearCorrect is a system that uses custom-moulded plastic tooth trays to straighten your teeth. These trays are made from transparent plastic that makes them practically invisible when in use.

This treatment benefits from being completely removable at any point by the patient. This makes meal times and cleaning much easier than with a fixed brace. Most people won’t even notice you’re undergoing treatment with this type of aligner.
