Treatment combining for a perfect smile

Expedience and invisibility are two keywords when looking for braces in Edinburgh. Traditional braces are highly effective; however, our patients have found that the time taken and the concession to looks is off-putting. Thanks to innovations in brace design, targeted solutions have been created that reduce treatment time. In addition to expediency, most straightening apparatus are made from tooth coloured brackets and wires or are made from clear plastic, creating braces in Edinburgh that are discreet.

Braces in Edinburgh

At Craigentinny Dental Care we offer 3 such solutions that have been picked due to their targeted approach.

Inman aligners

Inman aligners offer the quickest approach to teeth straightening, offering results in as little as 12-18 weeks. The braces consist of two spring-loaded bows that push against the teeth whilst the apparatus is formed from a thin metal wire and clear plastic. Although not completely invisible they are very discreet. They target only the front 6 teeth or ‘social 6’ and don’t correct overbite so can offer great results, quickly. Completely removable, they make eating and cleaning easy.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles, similarly to Inman aligners, don’t correct overbite but concentrate on straightening teeth. They are fixed in place, using white plastic brackets and tooth coloured wires, rendering them highly discreet. They take between 6 months to 2 years depending on your specific aims. However, they are highly effective, creating long lasting results for misaligned teeth.

Invisalign Aligner

Invisalign is the most ‘invisible brace’ on the market. Made from clear plastic, the bespoke aligner fits tightly against the teeth. They gently move teeth into their new position over 9 to 18 months using a series of aligners.

During an initial consultation, we will discuss the best straightening option for you. Once your teeth have been realigned, we can use other dental techniques to perfect the look of your teeth. We can address the shape of teeth and gums; including cosmetic treatments such as veneers to even the look of teeth or give your teeth a youthful lustre with teeth whitening.

Braces in Edinburgh could be the start of a journey to the smile you have always wanted thanks to our multidisciplinary approach to dental practice.
