Dental veneers are usually more associated with covering up gaps, cracks and general wear and tear in the teeth and gums. Crooked teeth are normally rectified by the use of aligners or braces. However, in some cases, a veneer can be used as a solution to crooked teeth as well- a term known as instant orthodontics. Most dentists are very unsure about using this technique in severe crookedness as it involves removing a lot of the tooth’s surface area and core below, but it is ideal where there is minimal crookedness. Once the tooth has been shaved and cleaned, it’s a matter of taking a cast so that the veneer can be made, and then it is simply cemented into place, hiding any signs of problems beneath. The reason people opt for this method is that the whole treatment is over with in a couple of weeks, where the average orthodontic treatment to re-align teeth is over a year.

Having crooked and misaligned teeth is a common complaint in the United Kingdom. Not only does it make your smile not look as good as it can do, it can also have implications for the health of your mouth. If your teeth are not aligned correctly, it can contribute to patients grinding their teeth in their sleep – known as bruxism – which can cause teeth to become damaged as the enamel is worn away. Inman aligners are an effective way of improving the look of your smile by straightening out your crooked teeth.
For many, many years, the only option available was for patients to be fitted with a traditional metal brace. These devices left patients with a mouth full of metal that could leave their confidence suffering for the years they had to wear the brace. Inman aligners can deal with many of the same problems as braces without the afore mentioned disadvantages.
First off, Inman aligners are far more discreet than braces. Instead of all the metal brackets and wires, Inman aligners work with just one visible part, a bar running across the front teeth. This increased discretion will be welcome news to any teenager who is worried about the look of a brace. Teenage years are awkward enough with the trials and tribulations of puberty. Inman can at least eliminate the extra discomfort of having a brace.
They are far more efficient than traditional, metal braces too. They work in just six months, achieving a set of straight teeth by using a concealed, coiled spring that pushes the teeth against the straightening bar. Your Sunbury dentist will be able to tell you all about Inman aligners and how they work if you are interested in this effective solution to a crooked smile.

If you have crooked misaligned teeth, you will get them straightened out with a brace or an aligner, but what about if you have a tooth at the front of your mouth which is stained, cracked or chipped? The answer is to ask your dentist about stunning porcelain veneers. These effective covers for unsightly teeth leave you with a beautiful looking smile having undergone a simple treatment that won’t break the bank.
Essentially a thin strip of porcelain is attached to the front of the tooth, covering up the element that you do not wish to be seen. Porcelain is lightweight but also durable and has the added bonus that it won’t become stained because, in many ways, it is like glass in that respect. Some of the existing tooth might need to be removed so that the porcelain dental veneer can fit just perfectly, but this is not always necessary because of how thin modern veneers can be.

Braces consist of a series of metal brackets which are attached to your teeth. These brackets have metal wires threaded through them which your dentist can adjust to pull your teeth into the required positions to give you a perfectly aligned smile. This can be achieved at regular appointments in the surgery where your dentist will make the necessary adjustments.
Braces are worn, on average, for about two years but it really depends on what needs to be achieved in the mouth as to how long you will need to wear it for. They can be difficult to clean and some people worry about food getting trapped within all the brackets and wires. But it really just takes a little extra effort and you will find that you are soon used to your new routine.
Some people find them a little unsightly to look at, but just imagine what your teeth will look like once the treatment is finished! You will be able to feel comfortable in your skin and confident about the look of your smile thanks to the work done by the brace. If you have any anxieties about the length of the treatment or whether it will be painful then you should talk to your Weybridge dentist as he or she will be able to give you all of the relevant information.

Since the Inman aligner came onto the market in Molesey, it’s gained many plaudits within dental circles and has reflected quite wonderfully, just how far dental procedures have come over the years and the engineering that goes into keeping our mouths healthy. This remarkable device works only on buck or crooked teeth at the front of the mouth, but boy, how it works! It has an ingenious mechanism. Once fitted, a wire sits around the outside of the teeth and gets straight to work, pulling the teeth into place. But the wire is also connected to a spring mechanism and a bar on the inside of the teeth, reversing the forces. The overall affect is that the teeth are constantly under pressure, moving to and fro in the mouth. The result of all this, in lay-mans terms, is that the teeth move extremely quickly, in fact, so fast, that the treatment can be completed in a little as 6 weeks! Now, the benefits are plain for all to see, especially for adults who may feel they simply can’t bear to go through any lengthy treatments at their time of life. You can plan around any social events you may have coming up with this treatment, but the benefits of having an Inman fitted doesn’t stop there. The device can be taken out at any time; for functions or after dinner speeches, but most importantly, for cleaning the teeth and the aligner after meals. If you’ve got the money and your teeth are suitable to have this type of treatment, then get down to your dentist now.
