For years 'teeth straightening' has been seen as a treatment only carried out on teenagers. Now with the latest technology, adults too can benefit from wearing a brace but without all the hang-ups of years gone by.
At Mint Dental Care we're committed to helping all of our patients achieve a smile to be proud of. That's why we offer a Free Teeth Straightening Consultation - so that we may take the time to discuss your questions and concerns, the range of teeth straightening treatments we provide, as well as the choice of finance options available to you.
We offer a choice of modern, discreet and comfortable teeth straightening systems - these include CLEARGUIDE Invisible Aligners, Radiance Clear Ceramic Braces and Fixed Metal Braces.
Clear Aligners are ideal for minor adjustments to mal-aligned smiles, with treatment usually lasting between 6 to 18 months depending on each unique case.
Treatment with Clear Aligners uses a pair of transparent aligners which are moulded to the exact shape of your teeth using 3D computer imaging. These aligners are so comfortable to wear that you will soon forget that they are there - they are also invisible when worn and so there is none of the embarrassment that comes with wearing large metal braces.
The aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing your teeth, but otherwise are worn continuously. Every fortnight the aligners are replaced by the next pair in the series so that your teeth are slowly moving and straightening without pain or discomfort. The use of aligners exerts a controlled force on the teeth: at different stages in the process, only certain teeth will be allowed to move. Thus the whole process is gradual, controlled and painless.
Available to patients of any age, Clear Ceramic Braces are able to comfortably, affordably and effectively correct minor to advanced cases of crowding and mis-aligned teeth. Clear Ceramic Braces work like metal braces - only better, because they blend in with your teeth for a great look. A perfect combination of strength and beauty, they are fitted to the front of your teeth, and consist of subtle, clear or tooth coloured brackets with metal wires running through them.
At Mint Dental Care, we are proud to use an appliance called Radiance Clear Ceramic Braces from American Orthodontics. Radiance Ceramic Braces are extremely durable as they made from sapphire, which is almost as strong as diamond. Each bracket is made from a single clear sapphire crystal which is heat treated and polished to make it exceptionally smooth to the touch and comfortable in the mouth, as well as resistant to staining.
Having been in use for over 100 years, are the tried and tested way of straightening your smile. They consist of small metal brackets which are fitted to the front of your teeth with a wire running between them kept in place by small elastic bands. A series of different sized wires are then used to gradually move your teeth into place.
