Start your journey to a perfect smile with braces in Colchester

Here at Hello Dental in Colchester, we want to help our patients feel good about showing their teeth. Having straight and white teeth can be a big source of pride in someone’s life and having a warm and welcoming smile can open many doors for you.

As we age our teeth can move and become misaligned and crooked. This can happen even if we have had teeth straightening treatments before if we don’t use a retainer.

This happens for many reasons, from genetics to tooth grinding and even our habits.

Teeth straightening options for adults

Luckily, with today’s modern dental techniques, we don’t have to live with a mouth full of metal for years on end to get the most out of our teeth. In Colchester, braces have evolved over time and newer, more modern treatments have sprung up with the increase in demand.

Many adults wouldn’t consider getting traditional braces because of the known downsides, but with modern treatments, these downsides aren’t an issue.

Fastbraces: straight teeth

Fastbraces is a system that evolved from traditional braces. There are a few notable differences that are vast improvements on traditional braces. Fastbraces can straighten a patient’s teeth in just 3-12 months.

The brackets and wires can also be made from tooth-coloured ceramics and clear materials, making them much less conspicuous. Fastbraces mostly focuses its movement on the front six teeth that are visible when smiling. This is how the treatment time can be short-term.

Do away with braces in Colchester

There are new treatments that don’t even require the patient to wear a brace at all. ClearCorrect straightens your teeth using gentle pressure provided by a series of custom-made plastic aligners.

These aligners work like tooth trays and fit your teeth perfectly. This type of treatment is much more comfortable than braces because the plastic trays are smooth and removable.

This removability also comes in handy when eating and keeping your teeth clean. You just look after your teeth the way you normally would with ClearCorrect.

We believe that you shouldn’t have to live with teeth that you are unhappy with so we offer free consultations for all of our braces.
