Teeth that are out of place can look unsightly and may also lead to problems such as with eating, speaking, and also discomfort if your top and lower sets do not align properly. Many people feel self-conscious about their teeth but there is no need as, at Smilecraft in Stevenage, braces offer a great way of straightening them. The best time to have treatment is in childhood, as this allows the jaw to develop properly and for the top and bottom teeth to function correctly. However, if you are an adult who missed out on treatment, it is never too late. At Smilecraft, braces have given people the benefit of a more beautiful smile as well as enhancing their oral health. This is because straighter teeth are easier to clean as there are fewer gaps in which plaque can accumulate. Braces also create stability in the mouth, as all teeth are properly supported, which preventss them from drifting.
Are metal braces my only option?
Years ago, the only braces on offer were fixed metal braces, which earned the nickname ‘train tracks’. People nowadays want braces that are less obtrusive and work faster, so we offer braces in Stevenage that fit these criteria. The Six Months Smiles technique uses tooth-coloured brackets and wires, which do not stand out from a distance. This means that they are more suitable for adults who have professional and social engagements. Most occasions are more enjoyable if you are not worrying about how you look.
