Teeth straightening options have expanded over the past decade to allow adults to achieve their dream smile discreetly, comfortably and affordably. In this article, we will explore the benefits of straightening your smile, what options there are for adults braces in Altrincham, and how you can begin your journey to your new smile. 

What are the benefits of adult braces?

There are many benefits to adult braces and not just that you will end up with a beautifully straight smile at the end of the process. The main benefit of adult braces is that your confidence will be greatly boosted. You won’t be able to help but show off your brand new smile!

What adult braces options do we offer?

At Regent Dental Centre in Altrincham, we offer two different types of adult braces to suit our patients’ different lifestyles. 

Cfast tooth alignment uses tooth-coloured brackets and wires to offer a discrete alternative to traditional ‘train track’ style fixed braces. The advantages of this treatment option is that it offers effective and fast results. Patients should expect to complete their treatment process within 6-8 months – a shorter treatment time means a lower cost for you. 

We also offer the SmileTRU adult braces treatment solution to our patients. We would recommend this option for patients with less severe cases of misalignment. It consists of a series of clear removable aligners that are designed to gently guide you teeth into the new desired position. The factor that attracts patients the most to this solution, is that the aligners are completely removable, meaning you can eat, drink and brush your teeth as normal. 

How long will it take for you to get straight teeth?

Every patient is different. We cannot give a definite answer to how long your treatment process will take. However, in your initial consultation with one of our highly trained orthodontists, you will be guided through the treatment process and how long the orthodontist thinks it will take. There are several factors that can impact the duration of your adult braces treatment including the severity of your crooked teeth and how often you wear your aligners.
