Teeth can be straightened using either orthodontics or porcelain veneers or a combination of both. Only mild to moderate crowding or protrusion can be aligned with veneers alone, but orthodontics can straighten any teeth, however severely misaligned. Combination treatments are ideal for crowded and misaligned teeth that are also heavily worn, discoloured or broken down.
The Inman Aligner is the fastest way to straighten teeth with a removable appliance. It is excellent for aligning the front teeth. Treatment times typically take from 6 to 16 weeks
Invisalign use a very high-tech manufacturing process to make a series of removable clear plastic aligners which makes them almost invisible. Treatment times are typically from 6 to 18 months.
Lingual Braces are like conventional fixed braces except the brackets are bonded to the inside of the teeth so they are invisible to others. Treatment times vary depending on case type from 6 to 24 months.
Tooth Coloured Braces
Clear and Ceramic Braces (Tooth coloured braces) are a low-visibility alternative to traditional metal braces. Ceramic braces have minimal visual impact and much less noticeable than metal braces, even up close.
Porcelain veneers to straighten teeth:
Teeth can be straightened using Porcelain Veneers as part of a smile makeover. Porcelain veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that are a new front surface for a tooth.
