Get a straighter, healthier smile for summer

As the nights grow longer and the air begins to warm, thoughts of sunny summer days start to enter our minds. Long summer days are a time to smile and laugh with abandon. But wait! What about your wonky teeth?

If your smile is less than perfect, you may not feel confident to show a broad grin. As an adult, you may think that the time has passed for teeth straightening, but that isn’t necessarily true.

To make the most of those heady summer days, start off with a spring clean for your teeth and find out if one of our modern braces systems at Hello Dental is for you.

Modern and discreet

The braces in Colchester that we offer are Fastbraces and Clear Correct.

Fastbraces work in just 3-12 months. They adjust the root and crown at the same time, which is why they work more quickly than traditional metal braces in Colchester.

Clear Correct transparent aligners are discreet and removable, making them ideal for adults. The plastic trays fit over the teeth and gums like mouth guards and are taken out for eating and cleaning, so they are very easy to maintain. And best of all, no one will know you are wearing them.

Healthier teeth

Getting braces in Colchester is not just about cosmetics. Without those wonky crevices to build-up in, the bacteria that cause tooth decay are less likely to get a hold. Straighter teeth are also easier to clean, meaning it’s more likely that you’ll hold onto them for longer.

A cocktail of happiness

As well as the dental benefits, having a smile you feel proud of gives a lift to your wellbeing. When we smile, we release a cascade of happy chemicals such as endorphins, dopamine and serotonin. This cocktail of happiness helps our muscles to relax and boosts our immune system.

Having a great smile also helps our relationships. When we see others smile, we can’t help but respond with a smile and this creates a feeling of friendliness and rapport. And when we feel able to smile and laugh freely, we feel more confident, more at ease with ourselves and so are more likely to attract positive experiences into our lives.
