Think “orthodontics” and, if you are like the majority of people, you will probably picture metal train-track braces. While once these were the only option, things have changed a lot in recent years. At Hermes London Dental Clinic in Victoria, we are pleased to offer a number of discreet alternatives for patients who need orthodontic treatment.
Why do I need orthodontic treatment, and what are my options?
Orthodontics is the dental specialism that deals with the alignment of teeth, and how the jaws meet together (the bite). Orthodontic treatment is seen as standard for children and teenagers these days, but there are many adults who dream of having straighter teeth – if only it didn’t mean wearing obvious metal train-track braces.
At our Victoria dental practice, we understand these concerns. Traditional braces remain an excellent method of straightening teeth, but they are by no means the only option. Because they are very obvious in the mouth and are associated with treatment times of two years or more, it’s not hard to see why this puts many adults off seeking treatment.
However, at our Victoria clinic we are of the belief that everybody deserves a smile to be proud of. That’s why we embrace discreet orthodontics, which takes the traditional principles of the discipline and modernise and adapts them for the 21st Century. That means we are able to offer teeth straightening treatment without the whole world knowing you are having it done.
We offer discreet treatment with both cosmetic braces and clear aligners at our Victoria dental clinic. Your dentist will discuss the best option for your case at your initial consultation.
Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces that work on the front six to eight teeth, while Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that can treat more complex orthodontic issues.
