People often get in touch with us seeking improvement in the appearance of their smile in the shortest time possible. Often this is due to an upcoming event such as a wedding or a significant birthday. Sometimes simply the thought of wearing a brace for a long time is putting them off!
When treatment time is important to a patient we can discuss the 'mini brace' options.
Moving only the teeth that concern you
All of our the braces we use to straighten teeth come in a mini brace option which move the front eight teeth only. This means you could still have metal fixed braces, clear fixed braces, invisible lingual braces or clear aligners to move your teeth. Because this treatment is only designed to improve the appearance of the smile or help general alignment, it takes an average of six months to complete and often less time!
It is very important to understand that this type of treatment is only suitable in certain situations. Sometimes, even though tooth alignment is corrected, other problems can appear as a result such as buck teeth or big over bites.
This is why it is essential to have a specialist orthodontist carry out your assessment before starting this type of treatment. We have the experience and training to advise on all treatment options to make sure you are happy with the end result.
Shorter Treatment Times
Mini brace treatments focus on the six to eight front teeth which show when you smile, instead of attempting to align all your teeth like traditional braces would. This results in quick and effective treatment. Patients with gapped, twisted or crooked smiles will benefit from this treatment option.
Comfortable and Discreet Treatment
Mini brace is one of the most discreet fixed brace treatments. The brackets are made from ceramics and the wires are made from nickel titanium coated in a tooth-coloured material. They aren't invisible, but they blend in with the teeth rather than stand out from them.
