What Are the Top Ways to Straighten Your Teeth?

Getting rid of the imperfections - the tooth that sticks out in photos, the gap that shows when you smile or the rotated, crooked teeth you want to hide – can now easily be managed with a growing number of teeth straightening treatments. These convenient solutions are widely used to help adults get perfect teeth and be proud to smile. Here are the popular ways people are choosing to achieve straighter teeth through orthodontics, and how you can benefit from them:




Invisalign is a highly popular teeth straightening option for adults across the UK. Why? Because it’s a virtually invisible appliance which can be removed and so won’t affect your lifestyle.

Invisalign is a custom-made, clear aligner made of medical grade plastic. Acting like a mouthguard, the appliance is wafer thin. The fact that it’s barely noticeable makes it ideal for people who don’t want others to know they’re straightening their teeth, or for those put off by wearing metal braces.

Changed every 2 weeks, Invisalign aligners gently and gradually move the teeth to the desired position, effectively straightening crooked, gapped or even overlapping teeth. Invisalign is unique in that it lets you eat, drink and take part in activities as you normally would.


Lingual braces

Lingual braces

Like Invisalign, lingual braces are a highly discreet teeth straightening option. Although they are a metal appliance and work in the same way as traditional braces, they are custom-made to fix neatly to the back of the teeth. As such, they won’t be seen as you smile.

The brackets and arch wires custom made with solid gold, using state of the art technology to ensure they are comfortable and an exact fit for your teeth. Lingual braces are a popular alternative to traditional braces, however, still working as efficiently and with reliable straightening results.


Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are a great option for adults who may have more extreme irregularities in the teeth but would like a subtler option than traditional fixed braces. Fitted to the front of teeth, they are composed of clear or tooth-coloured brackets, which makes them blend in more with the teeth. Additionally, ceramic braces won’t stain, meaning that they’ll be less noticeable throughout treatment.

Ceramic braces again offer the predictable, effective and efficient results that traditional braces allow, but they’re a more popular teeth straightening solution for many adults because enable people to smile confidently without the worry of their treatment being obvious.
