Adult braces have increased in popularity as it has become the most natural way to create a straight and healthy smile, without having to drill your teeth for crowns and veneers.
Tooth Straightening is our most popular cosmetic dental treatment here at The Edge Dental, with hundreds of patients having undergone adult braces with Nadeem Ahmed, our resident dentist with specialist interest in Orthodontics.
We offer most of the systems available on the market, to ensure there is something that will suit your needs. Some patients want the convenience of an invisible brace, some want the quickest solution and others want a more affordable option. The team at The Edge Dental are here to give you their honest opinion on what will suit you the best.
We offer the following systems:
Fixed Cosmetic Braces
These are small ceramic blocks placed on every tooth, which are held together with a wire. All the components used are tooth coloured to ensure they give a great cosmetic appearance. The wire is changed and adjusted every month to allow the teeth to move.
Once you have finished your braces, you will be provided with fixed and removable retainers to ensure your teeth remain in the same position indefinitely.
Fixed Lingual Braces
These are small metal blocks placed on the inside surface of the teeth and function in the same way as conventional fixed braces. However, lingual braces are completely invisible to everyone else, so you can continue to carry out your everyday tasks
Invisalign is an invisible brace that offers an innovative and modern alternative to straightening your teeth.
The technique has been used successfully by millions of people worldwide and gives the desired results without disrupting your day-to-day life. Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth.
Although every patient is different, treatment is usually completed within 12 to 18 months. Our experienced orthodontics are accredited Invisalign providers and have helped hundreds of patients achieve their dream smile using this treatment.
