Adult braces in Edinburgh are not as uncommon as you may think

It should come as no surprise to you that many of us who may have needed braces in Edinburgh when we were younger missed out, potentially because they were too expensive, there was a limited access to dental care or because the teeth were not in dire need of correcting but was merely a cosmetic issue.

Braces in Edinburgh

Fast forward 20 or 30 years, and you may be feeling like you have missed out on the opportunity to have beautiful, straight teeth and must simply live with what you have. But here is where you are wrong. Teeth straightening has never only been for children and teenagers, although many adults were simply put off by the appearance of traditional braces and the length of time that they took to work.

Thankfully, over the years, technology has significantly improved, allowing not only for traditional metal braces to have a makeover and take a lot less time to provide results, but more modern and sleek devices have come into popularity, that may just be what you are looking for.

We offer braces in Edinburgh that can adapt to suit your lifestyle. We understand that you do not want to feel like you may compromise your career or social life throughout your teeth straightening journey, so we have several invisible options that can correct the alignment of your teeth and jaws without you needing to compromise.

By speaking to one of our understanding, compassionate and dedicated team dentists, we can set you on the right path to the beautiful smile that is waiting to be discovered. Every one of our team members has the technical prowess, coupled with an eye for aesthetics, that enables them to bring your unique and beautiful smile into its best appearance.

What are some of the models available?

A lot of us do not need to bother with correcting a bite, but simply wish to visibly alter the teeth that we see. We are able to effectively and quickly do this with a few models that are specifically designed for this purpose.

Six Month Smiles is a fixed system that allows dentists maximum control over teeth positioning. They offer fast results, as the name suggests, and can be used for a variety of different issues that you may have.

We also offer removable options, such as the popular Invisalign or the Inman Aligner. The Inman Aligner works best for slight dental movements and works extremely quickly, whilst Invisalign can take a little longer but offers more control over teeth positioning.

We are able to discuss with you what we believe to be the best choice for your personal situation, after we have sat down with you and gone over what your smile goals are and what benefits you would like to have throughout the treatment process.

Each model comes with its advantages and potential downsides, depending on what you are seeking, so before you consider what model you believe will be best suited for you, we recommend that you speak to a professional to gain further insight regarding your personal situation.
