Cosmetic Teeth Straightening Treatments

Woman having a consultation with her dentistCosmetic teeth straightening treatments may have more benefits that people may imagine. Generally, straighter teeth are healthier teeth, so any improvements to the alignment of a patient’s teeth are worthwhile. These kinds of treatments are designed primarily to be confidence-boosting.

Much can be said for a boost in confidence. Confidence is key in a lot of areas of modern life. It could open doors in social situations and even a person’s career. This is why dental practices like Park Orthodontics offer cosmetic treatments. In Glasgow, Six Month Smiles is a popular treatment that can put the final touch to a smile.

Six Month Smiles in Glasgow

Six Month Smiles is a treatment that is closely related to traditional braces. Many developments have been made around traditional braces over the years, making them look less conspicuous and offer more comfort than in the past.

Six Month Smiles in Glasgow focus on just the front six teeth that are visible when a person smiles. This is how they can adjust a person’s teeth in just six months or, in some cases, less than six months.

The treatment is also made from clear and tooth-coloured materials making the braces and brackets blend in with the teeth for a more subtle appearance.

Six Month Smiles is considered a cosmetic treatment because it’s only capable of achieving limited adjustment on the front six teeth. The treatment is suited to patients who may have had teeth straightening treatment in the past and would like to bring their teeth back to alignment.

Invisalign in Glasgow

Another treatment that is considered cosmetic is Invisalign. Unlike Six Month Smiles, Invisalign shares little in common with traditional braces other than its use of gentle pressure to adjust teeth.

Instead of metal wires and brackets, Invisalign uses a series of custom-moulded tooth trays that adjust the patient’s teeth. The aligners are removable, allowing for a higher level of practicality than a fixed appliance.

These aligners are produced from a clear plastic that is almost invisible when in use on the patient’s teeth. Invisalign can only be used to make limited adjustments so it also considered a cosmetic treatment.
