Orthodontics – get ‘QuickStraightTeeth’ in less time than conventional braces
Traditionally squint front teeth have been a real problem, particularly for adult patients. Whilst wanting straight teeth, most adults don’t like the idea of wearing braces that are permanently cemented in place for 12-24 months. Here at North Berwick Dental Centre, Crawford Elrick can now improve your smile in less time than you thought possible. QuickStraightTeeth™ is a system that uses tooth coloured brackets and wires that are bonded to the teeth, alternatively a clear aligner system may be more suited to your bite or lifestyle. QuickStraightTeeth™ focusses on improving the appearance of the smile without looking to reorganise your bite. This means that treatment can be faster that you might imagine.
The tooth coloured wires and brackets mean that your braces will be barely visible. Treatment time varies depending on the starting position of the teeth and on average takes around 6 months. Our team are happy to assess your smile and discuss all of your options for short term orthodontic treatment.
Clear Removable Aligners
These are very thin, virtually invisible braces that fit over your teeth and don’t impede your speech.
They are easily removed for eating and for meetings and evenings out.
They are good for aligning mild crowding of the front teeth.
This is a fixed brace system which has a reliable and proven track record worldwide for their performance and beautiful aesthetics, being very discreet once placed in the mouth. We also use bespoke tooth coloured wires making our braces the most aesthetic compared with any similar systems available on the market today. The braces are traditionally only used on the front 6 or 8 teeth, to correct mild misalignment and give you a beautiful smile.
The treatment works much like removable aligners, but tooth movement is more predictable and is usually quicker. The braces put gentle pressure on the teeth to level and align the teeth with minimal discomfort. We do not claim to address major orthodontic issues. We aim to correct mild to moderate tooth crowding, not reorganise your bite.
Standard orthodontic mechanics are still involved in the use of Quick Straight Teeth™ , but because it’s just the front teeth, the force required is minimal. The wires exert mild pressure to move the teeth, and this is done without the need for severe tightening which causes the discomfort noted in conventional orthodontic treatments.
You also need not fear wearing our Q Fixed, teeth straightening, adult braces, “train tracks” are not the look we go for! The Quick Straight Teeth™, invisible braces system uses only clear braces (brackets) and tooth coloured wires making the clear braces virtually invisible in the mouth. Also Quick Straight Teeth™ braces are worn for only a very short time in comparison to traditional braces ensuring it is a fast, cost effective way to get straight teeth.
