Have you been feeling like hiding your smile because of your misaligned teeth? Are you at a stage in your life where you don’t want to be seen wearing braces, because you feel that ship may have already sailed?

Here at The Dental Studio, we have a wide range of discreet brace systems that you can wear to straighten your teeth efficiently.
If you have crooked or unevenly spaced teeth, we offer a wide range of options to help realign your smile. Treatment can take as little as 6 months depending on your individual needs – everybody is different! With every patient, we have an initial consultation, where we will give you a full check-up and we may use moulds and take dental X-rays as well. We can also discuss your views about your smile and we will give our expert opinion about which treatments could be best for your needs.
Here, we have a short summary of some of the different options for orthodontics in Colchester available to you.
Invisalign is designed to be discreet and almost invisible! It consists of removable clear aligners which are made bespoke to your mouth. You don’t have to wear them when you eat and drink, making it easier to keep your mouth clean with brushing and flossing. The aligners are changed every couple of weeks and they each apply a gentle pressure to move your teeth into the desired position. The best thing about them is that when you are wearing them, people shouldn’t be able to realise that they are on your teeth, unless you choose to mention it!
Invisalign helps to correct deep bites, overbites, crooked or overcrowded teeth, spacing and sticking out teeth. As long as you have your adult teeth, you could be eligible for Invisalign treatment, and we will advise you.
Six Month Smiles
If you have crooked or unevenly spaced teeth, there is the possibility that this can be improved in just 6 months, whereas conventional treatment can take around 18 months! Originating in the USA, we were proud to be one of the first UK clinics to offer this treatment. It consists of special titanium nickel wire braces that match the colour of your teeth, so they are less noticeable. The wires aren’t tightened to make the teeth move more quickly; instead, the system focuses on the position of your teeth, rather than that of your bite. This means that your teeth are moved with a low force that is comfortable and reduces risk of damage to roots and gums. After this, you will need to wear a retainer as well.
Cfast cosmetic braces
Sometimes, patients only require the front 6 teeth to be realigned and we offer a lingual brace system that is attached to the back of the teeth, rather than the front. This means that they are not noticeable to other people as they aren’t up front and on show! What’s more, if you really open your mouth wide as you laugh out loud, the brackets are made of clear plastic too. Cfast cosmetic braces are effective and less intrusive than some other options. The plus point is that you will see your teeth changing and nobody will know how!
