Are you one of the millions of adults who are unhappy, self-conscious or even embarrassed of your smile? Would you like to increase your self-confidence??
Braces in Basingstoke are in high demand. Every year, more than 200,000 patients in England and Wales choose to straighten their teeth with braces.
Increasing numbers of patients come to us in their 30's, 40's and 50's with crooked teeth seeking to improve their smiles but they do not want or have the desire to file their teeth for veneers. A lot of people probably have a fairly outdated idea of what orthodontics is and they probably go back to a time when it was literally a mouthful.
Why is straightening teeth so popular?
Straight teeth can not only improve looks but one's outlook too! They create an increase in self-confidence and enhanced self-esteem and above all, it makes teeth easier to clean reducing the risk of decay and gum disease, meaning you can eat more comfortably.
It's certainly a look many of us desire - a recent study by the British Orthodontic Society revealed 45 per cent of adults are unhappy with their teeth and 20 per cent would consider having some form of treatment.
In recent times in the UK, it seems perfectly acceptable to see an adult wearing a fixed brace and it's becoming more so. This may be due to the fact that there are many different options for straightening teeth out there, to include removable clear aligners and fixed appliances which are white in colour and aesthetically pleasing.
Did you know that in some cases teeth can be straightened in as little a time as 6 months??? Some brace systems are highly efficient at moving our front teeth only in a short space of time meaning you can have the smile you always wanted in time for an important event.
Surveys suggest a holly wood smile puts you on the highway to a job promotion, while health experts reckon that having straight teeth is the only way to ensure they will be kept in working condition late into life.
