Fast Adult Orthodontics

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

There are a huge range of systems and brand names available and our team have experience with many of these. They are broken down into 3 categories

Removable Braces – like the Inman Aligner – best for limited tooth movements, rapid treatment but moderate control of the final position of your teeth. Costs are lowest with this system. Find out more and see examples

Clear braces – the best-known brand name is Invisalign, these are removable and take a little longer but have good control over tooth position and are probably the closest thing to “invisible braces” costs tend to be higher with this type of treatment

Six Month Smiles – this is a fixed system and provides maximum control of the tooth positioning. Treatment times vary but are generally a little faster than with clear aligners. Costs are higher than Inman Aligner but Lower than Invisalign. Other systems like quick straight teeth and Cfast work in a similar way. Find out more and see examples


6 Month Smiles

The Inman Aligner is not suitable for everyone but our team can now also offer 6 Month Smiles treatment which is able to help patients who are not suitable for the Inman Aligner. We will be pleased to advise you on your own adult orthodontics situation. To find out more just book an appointment.

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.
