What are my options for straight teeth quickly?

With such busy and hectic lives we know how things can often be overlooked, perhaps you are getting married and have just realised you’re not happy with your smile? Perhaps you have a big birthday or other celebration coming up and have suddenly realised you need to look good for the photos?

Depending upon how long you have got there are a few options available to get fast results, let’s take a look.

Quick correction of mildly crooked teeth

If you have just a single tooth which is mildly rotated or twisted or perhaps even a couple of front teeth then this can often be corrected with dental bonding. Dental bonding is where your dentist as a small amount of tooth coloured composite material to the visible part of your tooth, this material can be built up to make your teeth look straight.

Dental bonding to correct mild crooked teeth

How quickly can I have straight teeth with dental bonding?

The process is done with you sitting in the dental chair and can take anywhere from 45 min up to a few hours, depending upon the number of teeth you want straight. For fast results, dental bonding certainly beats every other form of straight teeth treatment but it is only suitable for correcting very mildly crooked teeth.

Quick correction of moderately crooked teeth

If you have moderately crooked teeth, in other words, a few teeth which are quite crooked or many crooked teeth then dental bonding is a possibility as are veneers and orthodontics.

Dental veneers work on the same principle as bonding, they cover the surface of your tooth, leaving your natural tooth where it is and simply building out areas of your tooth to make it look straight. Dental veneers are more permanent than dental bonding and will last longer. A big advantage with dental veneers is that you are able to have instant straight white teeth as the veneers can be made any colour and as white as you like.

Moderately crooked teeth can also be straightened quickly using Invisalign Go.  This is a clear removable brace which moves teeth rapidly compared to other orthodontic systems. The Inman aligner is also a system able to straighten moderately crooked teeth rapidly. The Inman aligner works by simultaneously pushing and pulling teeth on different parts using a revolutionary new spring system.

Typical treatment times are between 12 and 16 weeks, assuming you only have moderately crooked front teeth.

Typical treatment times range from approximately 4 to 7 months, assuming you only want the front teeth straightened.

From start to finish we recommend allowing at least four weeks. This will give you time to have a consultation with the dentist, have some initial diagnostics done to work out the final shape of your teeth and then have the teeth prepared by the dentist and veneers made by the technician.

Quick correction of severely crooked teeth

Severely crooked teeth will almost certainly require extended treatment with orthodontics. Whilst bonding and veneers are excellent at straightening rotated teeth, if the body of the tooth is not in the correct position then orthodontics will most likely be the best option. There are orthodontic systems to give fast results however these generally only work on the top or bottom front teeth. If you need other teeth to be moved as well then more complex orthodontics maybe your best option.

Orthodontic systems such as Invisalign and Six Month Smiles are ideal options to straighten more severely crooked teeth.

Typical treatments with Invisalign take between 12 and 24 months, depending upon the severity of your crooked teeth.

Summary

There’s no one size fits all solution to having straight teeth quickly, it depends upon your clinical situation and budget, the best way to find out which technique is best for you is to visit your dentist for an initial consultation.

Do you have crooked teeth, and would like them straighter but do not want people to know you are having orthodontics?

Or perhaps you had orthodontics when you were younger and your teeth have moved again, and being older you don’t want metal train track braces?

There are now two new amazing treatments for almost invisible braces, available from Blue Court Dental Centre in the heart of Harrow. These are Clear Braces and Six Month Smiles.

Invisible Braces with Clear Braces.

This revolutionary modern orthodontic technique provides you with a series of clear orthodontic braces, which are almost invisible. Each Clear Brace moves your teeth a small amount towards your straighter smile. You simply where each almost invisible Brace for the prescribed time, normally a couple of weeks, then replace it with a new Brace. We will provide you with a series of clear aligners (braces)so there will be no need to keep returning to the practice each time.

Invisible Braces with Six Month Smiles.

This again is a modern technique and is an up to date version of the traditional train track braces. However this time the braces are made with clear brackets and tooth coloured barely visible wires. Opting for Six Month Smiles with fixed braces, means that tooth movement can be achieved more rapidly as we are able to put slightly more pressure onto each tooth.

If you live in Harrow and are looking for a dentist to provide invisible braces for a straighter smile, then please do visit our website and download a voucher for a free assessment. This will include a full clinical consultation to discuss how you wish your new smile to look after you have had your invisible braces.
