If your teeth are crooked and you are not happy with how they look, then braces in St John’s Wood could be a great option for you. They move your natural teeth to put them into the best position possible for a straighter smile. We offer a few different types of braces here at Aura Dental, and we will always have a consultation meeting with you before we start any treatments to pinpoint which brace will be the right one for your needs.
Lingual braces at St John’s Wood are similar to traditional metal braces in the sense that they move your teeth over time to the desired position. The difference is that lingual braces are placed on the back of your teeth, this comes with many benefits.
One of these benefits is the appearance, if you are worried about other people seeing your braces, then lingual braces would be a good option. To other people, it doesn’t even look like you have them on! It also stops the slight staining that can happen from appearing on your front teeth, for others to see, and is contained to the back of your teeth. This will, of course, be cleaned off once your braces are removed.
This type of brace is an aligner which focuses on straightening the front teeth specifically. If you have crowding or crooked front teeth, these can be a great help. Our patients typically see results within 6-18 weeks depending on their needs, so it can be a quick and low budget way to help straighten your front teeth. This is a removable aligner which moves the teeth at a great pace so you can achieve straighter teeth fast. You will have appointments with us every 2-3 weeks so we can see your progress and how your teeth are moving.
Invisalign aligners are very popular with our patients who are looking for a discreet way to align their teeth. These are clear removable plastic trays that straighten your teeth over a certain amount of time depending on your needs. They are also lightweight which means they are comfortable to wear and do not affect your speech massively.
Our patients love Invisalign because once you are given your set of trays, you can change them in the comfort of your own home, with minimal dental appointments. This is great if you have a busier schedule and cannot fit in regular appointments with us. All you will need to do is make sure you change your aligners when needed, and keep them and your teeth clean! It’s as simple as that.
