It’s often said that the first thing people notice about us is our smile, and if yours is less than perfect it can really dent your confidence. Modern dentistry techniques offer a variety of options for those looking to achieve a radiant smile and lovely straight teeth, some of which work a lot more quickly than you might think.
Obviously, everyone’s mouth is different, and the type of treatment your dentist recommends will differ depending on individual circumstances. It’s therefore very important to go and see your dentist and talk things through with them before making any firm decisions about the sort of treatment you want to have. The most traditional sort of orthodontic treatment to straighten out teeth is fixed braces. This treatment is most commonly used on children and teenagers whose teeth are still developing, and although effective, it can take anything up to two years to straighten out teeth completely. Fixed braces are also fairly unattractive, and although straight teeth will give a long term boost to confidence, having braces for such a long period can understandably put a lot of people off.
There is a new method of teeth straightening which we use at Scottish Smile Clinic called C-Fast, and it has several benefits over the traditional method. The most important benefit of C-Fast for teeth straightening is the speed; whereas it can take up to two years to straighten teeth using traditional braces, C-Fast can achieve the same results on your front six teeth within 2 to 6 months. The brace and wire itself is designed to blend in with the rest of your teeth and is a lot less obvious. C-Fast is appropriate for most patients who want to have their teeth straightened, so why not book a consultation to see if it would be suitable for you?
