Orthodontics is a specific branch of dentistry that concentrates on identifying, averting and treating dental and facial irregularities. There are many options available to patients who would like to get their teeth straightened, several of which we offer here at Viva Dental.
So, if you aren’t happy with your smile because your teeth have too many gaps, are too crooked or you have an overbite, please read about the different braces we have on offer below. After all, having a stunning smile is worth the brief inconvenience of wearing braces.
If you would like to understand just how effective our orthodontic treatments can truly be, our ‘before and after’ photos will show you some of the beautiful transformations that we are responsible for.
Lingual braces are fitted behind your teeth rather than in front, so that no-one knows you are even wearing them. They are a modern and discreet solution to misaligned teeth and work in as little as six to nine months. Each bracket is designed to perfectly adapt to the shape of your teeth and applies gentle pressure so that they slowly shift into the desired position.
This type of alignment treatment is an ideal alternative to traditional, metal braces because it is invisible, more comfortable and lets you continue eating and drinking as usual. The treatment involves nine to eighteen months of the patient wearing an aligner that is replaced every two weeks. Slowly but surely, you will notice your teeth becoming straighter, until they have finally reached their desired position. May require some tooth coloured attachments to facilitate tooth movement.
6 Month Braces
6 Month Smiles is another discreet way to straighten your teeth and, as the name suggests, treatment lasts for a maximum of six months. The aligners are invisible and the brackets are the colour of your teeth, so they blend inconspicuously and are barely noticeable to others. In some cases time may be extended depending of individual tooth movements.
