Adult Orthodontics

If you are looking for straighter teeth as an adult then Short term orthodontics may be the solution for you. Treatment  focuses on the teeth that you see in your smile and does not attempt to reorganise your bite, for this reason, is faster than, comprehensive orthodontic treatments that are still considered “best practice” for younger patients.

Traditionally squint front teeth have been a real problem, particularly for adult patients. While wanting straight teeth most adults don’t like the idea of wearing braces that are permanently cemented in place for 12-24 months. At Craigentinny Dental Care you can now improve your smile in less time than you thought possible with braces in Edinburgh. 6 Month Smiles is one of many systems that use tooth coloured brackets and wires that are bonded to the teeth.

Like most of our orthodontic treatments, 6 Month Smiles focuses on improving the appearance of the smile without looking to reorganise your bite. This means that treatment can be faster than you might imagine.

The tooth coloured wires and brackets mean that your braces will be barely visible. Treatment time with braces in Edinburgh varies depending on the starting position of the teeth and on average takes around 6 months. Our team are happy to assess your smile and discuss all of your options for short term orthodontic treatment including 6 Month Smiles, Inman Aligners or Invisalign.
