What can we offer you to straighten your teeth?

11th November 2016

What are you looking for in a dental treatment? Everyone is different of course, and may prioritise one factor above another, but at Slough Braces Centre, we talk to our patients regularly and there are some issues that come up again and again.

At our clinic in Slough, braces are something we offer to those who want to restore their smile though realignment. We offer Six Month Smiles to many people after detailed consultation and assessment. Here are some of the factors that come up for people regarding treatment, and how we address them:

How will I look?

We understand that aesthetics are an important factor for many people. And we know that this is not just after treatment is complete but while it is in process as well. One of the advantages of Six Months Smiles as an option for braces in Slough is that it address this concern. The brackets are near invisible against the teeth and even the wires are tooth-coloured to make them more understated.

How long will it take?

Ultimately, the teeth can only be moved so fast, but developments in dental processes mean that, depending on what you want done, you can achieve the result you want faster than you think. Six Month Smiles can give you a new smile in as little as, you guessed it, six months. The total exact time varies from person to person, but this is a good average figure.

As for total time visiting the dentist, you will need to have an impression of your teeth taken and then return for a second visit to our clinic in Slough. Braces are fitted at this appointment. After that, you will need regular, relatively brief visits to ensure that everything is going well.

Will it hurt?

Moving the teeth will create sensations in the mouth for most people. Six Month Smiles is very gentle and so should not be very uncomfortable but, when it is, it will be mild and will pass quickly. Your dentist can give you advice on how to handle this and what is normal. Usually they will recommend over-the-counter painkillers as a temporary measure. If you have any concerns however, you are always welcome to contact us at Slough Braces Centre and we will be happy to help.
