Come out from behind your lips

Is your smiling hidden away behind closed lips? If so, and it’s because you think your teeth are too wonky to be shown the light of day, then you doing yourself a disservice. Having a great smile has important knock-on effects that are not to do with vanity. Being able to smile a knock-out smile has a subconscious effect on other people that makes them warm to you and want to help you. Your smile makes others feel good and, in return, they usually want to make you feel good too by getting closer to you and being generous with you. In short, your smile is your first port of call in the world of non-verbal communication and you need to be able to use it as often as you can. If you aren’t happy with your smile, we can help you with braces in Colchester, that’s why we are called Hello Dental.

Now, you may think that having braces is too much effort and takes too long to get results, but, if you don’t have issues with the alignment of your bite, treatment with braces in Colchester can take as little as three months. Most adults don’t have issues with how their jaws line up because this problem is treated on the NHS and must be done before the jawbones set hard at around age 18. The NHS does not have the funds to align teeth that are only mildly to moderately wonky, so there are lots of adults out there who need braces.

You don’t often see any adults wearing braces in Colchester, not because they are not doing so, but because modern braces are often so discreet that they don’t catch the eye in the way the braces of the 1970s and 80s did, when they were so big and clunky that they were impossible to miss.

At Hello Dental, we offer two brands of braces that can align your teeth in 3-12 months. Fastbraces is the only system that guarantees straight teeth for life. ClearCorrect is a clear aligner system that is a great alternative to fixed braces.
