What are adult braces?

Adult braces are made from transparent ceramic material and remain hidden inside the mouth. Unlike the conventional metal braces, they’re hardly visible and so have great appeal with adults. These clear, removable, plastic aligners are worn over the teeth without using any metal or wire.

What benefits do adult braces offer?

Just like teen braces, adult braces too are meant for teeth straightening and smile makeover. Crooked teeth are difficult to brush and can increase the plaque build-up. Less plaque indicates a significantly less chance of developing gum disease, cardiac problems and diabetes.

At the Shirley Park Dental, we provide a wide range of adult braces. These braces are easily removable and allow you to maintain your normal lifestyle without compromising with your favourite foods and drinks. Our orthodontist possesses great track record in successfully handling cases involving teeth straightening in South Croydon with adult braces.

Combining teeth straightening using adult removable braces with other minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry treatments like teeth whitening that we provide, you can achieve your dream smile absolutely hassle-free.

  • Clear fixed braces: Traditional ceramic braces available in the colour of the teeth. They work in the same way as traditional metal braces but remain almost invisible inside your mouth.
  • Lingual braces: These are attached to the back of your teeth to facilitate the teeth movement.
  • Damon braces: Damon braces provide greater comfort than their conventional counterpart and also move your teeth faster.

What is the average time required for straightening adult teeth?

As far as treatment with adult braces is concerned, the time varies from case to case. Cases of minor adjustment take about 6 months while complicated ones last nearly 2 years. However, straightening only the front teeth for pure aesthetic improvement can be achieved much earlier.

Our orthodontist in South Croydon will thoroughly analyse your current mouth condition and will be able to give you an approximate treatment time that is necessary for the re-positioning of the teeth.
