Ways your dentist can straighten your teeth – discreetly

As a dentist, one of the most common complaints you hear from patients of all ages is that they would like straighter teeth. At Aura Dental in North London, we know that there are more than just aesthetic benefits to improving the alignment of your teeth. Straighter teeth are, generally speaking, healthier teeth, because they are easier to keep clean. With fewer gaps for food particles and plaque bacteria to build up in, your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease are reduced – so long as you pay regular visits to your dentist and hygienist, and maintain a good home cleaning routine, of course.

Discreet orthodontics – a thoroughly modern treatment

dentist north londonOne of the main barriers faced by adults who want straighter teeth is the thought of wearing traditional metal braces. Metal train-track style wire and bracket braces are often thought to be synonymous with orthodontic treatment.

Whist it’s true that these traditional metal devices are very effective at treating a full spectrum of orthodontic problems, they are not particularly compatible with a hectic professional lifestyle. Discreet orthodontics have seen enormous advances in recent years, giving your dentist or orthodontist many subtler ways of straightening your teeth. At our North London dental practice we offer both fixed and removable devices designed to give you straighter teeth without a metallic glint in sight.

What’s best for me?

The best treatment option for you will depend on your clinical need and your personal preference. When you come for a consultation at our North London dental practice, your dentist will examine you and will explain all the options available to you, letting you know the pros, cons, and projected length of each option.

Among the discreet orthodontic devices available at our North London clinic are:

Six Month Smiles

These fast-acting cosmetic braces work quickly on the teeth that show when you smile. They comprise clear and tooth-coloured components.

Clear aligners

We offer a range of removable clear aligners to collect a wide range of problems.
