There are a series of dental issues you may be suffering with, which cosmetic braces can fix, such as crooked teeth, misaligned teeth, gaps in your teeth or overcrowding. All of these issues can make dental care difficult and affect your smile. These are also issues which if left untreated, could lead to more serious issues later in life and require more extensive treatment to fix.
If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, this could mean that once your mouth is closed, they don't fit together properly, causing additional strain on your jaw. Also, it is likely that there are gaps and other hard to reach areas as a result, making brushing more difficult and increasing the chances of bacteria causing tooth decay. There is also the possibility of the teeth being in a position that makes it impossible to floss, which is a very important part of a dental care routine. This could lead to bacteria build up in these gaps, causing tooth decay which will eventually lead to tooth loss. This would require a dental implants treatment to fix and prevent even more serious damage.
Overcrowding teeth can also cause misalignment, pain and other issues which could even lead to gum disease. Overcrowding which causes the teeth to become misaligned can result in a crooked smile and harm your confidence as a result. Often, this will need to be treated with a form of braces, as the teeth will need to be moved into a more natural-looking position. Treatments such as composite bonding will be unable to move the teeth or make them appear straighter, especially if there are overlaps between multiple teeth.
Dental issues don't necessarily have to affect your dental hygiene or daily life (eating, drinking, etc...), they may simply affect your appearance. Everybody is different and what may be an issue for one person may not be an issue for another, but that's no reason not to do what is right for you. Receiving dental treatment is a very personal journey and can result in a total rebuild of your confidence and self-esteem, once you see the incredible results. There are no rules when it comes to receiving treatment and no restrictions, as every client's situation is unique.
By taking this approach to every client and treating their situation as completely unique, we're able to create a treatment plan which is specifically tailored to the individual and delivers the exact results they expect. This means that even if your teeth aren't causing you severe difficulty or discomfort, you can still receive cosmetic braces to straighten your teeth and give you a smile that you view as perfect.
In some cases, those who have suffered dental issues from a young age sought out corrective procedures, such as fixed braces, around their teens. For those who didn't, there is often a fear that receiving dental treatment in your adult years will impact your life (including appearance and confidence) too much. This is one of the reasons why we offer cosmetic braces options and love being able to offer clients who previously had fears of the dentist, a treatment that squashes those fears. Cosmetic braces are able to fix your teeth without altering the appearance of your mouth in dramatic ways.
As we offer a wide range of services here at Dental Excellence, we're able to provide a service that covers all aspects of issues you may face with your teeth. For example, if you're looking to achieve straighter teeth but have issues with discolouration, we can offer a whitening treatment too. Our services aren't limited to just one type of treatment, we're able to offer composite bonding treatments which can improve the colour of your teeth whilst retaining your natural tooth. If your teeth are damaged or unhealthy, we can explore options that can replace your unhealthy tooth with an artificial tooth which will improve your oral health and your smile, as a result of the tooth being a much more vibrant white colour.
