The idea of braces as an adult is one that makes a lot of people nervous. But it doesn’t have to! At AP Smilecare, we’ve got a broad range of adult braces treatments that not only have reliable, lasting results, but are also discreet about how they get them – so you can smile with confidence throughout your treatment. In the first of our two-part series, we explain about some of the procedures we have on offer, and how you can benefit from them. (We’ve also included information about the cost of adult braces, as it can obviously be a major factor in a lot of these decisions!)
It does what it says on the tin! This treatment is specifically designed to straighten your smile within a short timeframe, making it an ideal quick fix to correct crooked or uneven teeth. As with our other treatments, all of our clients begin by having a detailed consultation with Dr Jamshaid, one of our resident dental experts. The consultation will cover the finer details of the treatment, including what you want from the process, and how we’ll tailor the procedure to your needs. Once we’ve assessed that, we can get started in earnest.
The treatment consists of a series of metal brackets and silver wires, which are attached in two separate arches to the front of your teeth. The braces are permanent fixtures, which means they’re not removable for the duration of the treatment. You’ll be happy to hear though, that’s not very long! The high-strength wires align your top and bottom front teeth, giving you quick results within a 3-6 month timeframe. Considering that many adult braces treatments take between twelve to eighteen months, we think you’ll agree that its reputation for being fast and effective is well-earned!
Price: £1700 per arch
Despite their high rate of effectiveness, we understand that visible braces like those above are sometimes not a popular treatment option with certain people. A lot of this is to do with confidence – not everyone is comfortable with the visibility of their dental treatment. Don’t worry though, because we’ve got something for that too! Invisalign is a pioneering technology that entirely lives up to its name; it’s a removable brace that fits almost completely invisibly over your teeth, allowing you to enjoy all the benefits of dental treatment without any loss of confidence. Suitable for adjusting a single tooth or several at a time, Invisalign is renowned by dental experts throughout the UK as one of the safest and most effective ‘Adult Braces’ available.
The braces themselves fit on the inner surfaces of your teeth, and are specially made so that they’re a perfect fit. The treatment usually takes between 12-to-18 months, after which you can be certain of truly amazing results.
Price: £2500 (i.e. both top and bottom arches)
These aren’t the only adult braces treatment we offer though; we’ve also got treatments involving Incognito Lingual braces and Tooth Coloured (Ceramic) braces, both of which we’ll expand upon more in our blog next week. If you can’t wait until then, just give us a call on 01282 297 000 for any questions you might have. We’re here to help!
