Keeping Your Smile Happy. A Quick Look at Getting Straight Teeth, Fast

Not everyone is blessed with magazine perfect or textbook teeth. But the good news is your smile doesn’t have to stay that way. Of course, you want nice teeth, and once you’ve made that decision you‘ll likely want straight teeth as quickly as possible too.

And those teenage braces… is the wire look really necessary? After all, we’ve got cars that drive themselves these days…

But is there such a thing as getting quick, straight teeth?

Adult Braces. It’s Time to Think Again

It’s common now to hear of adults wearing braces, and it’s just normal to see a brace on a work colleague. Or you might not see, because a key part in many treatments today is discreetness.

Once upon a time, you’d get a mouth full of metal. But today those traditional train tracks can be a thing of the past. In their place most patients who opt for cosmetic teeth straightening will have discreet ‘invisible’ aligners or braces to get quick straight teeth.

They’re subtle, but effective.

So How Are Teeth Straightened?

Well let’s rewind just a little. There are two broad categories of teeth straightening. Comprehensive Teeth Straightening and Cosmetic Teeth Straightening.

Metal train track braces are a go-to for comprehensive teeth straightening treatments, because they tend to be given primarily to teenagers to fix issues with the way the teeth come together as well as how they look.

However, most adults don’t have problems with how their teeth come together. So we can often focus on straightening the part of your smile that’s seen, and that gives you straighter teeth in a much quicker time frame. Straightening the side and front teeth alone means an average treatment time of just six months, sometimes sooner.

There are always exceptions, and for roughly 1 person in 100 a comprehensive approach is required to deliver those straighter teeth. And unfortunately, this isn’t as quick, typically taking around 18 months.

So, forget everything you think you know about adult braces and let’s look at the options for straightening teeth quickly:

So, What Are the Options For Quick Straight Teeth?

Does getting quick, straight teeth even exist? After all comprehensive methods, from a ‘normal’ dentist will take around 18 months from start to finish.

But like we said, forget metal mouth, train tracks and all that stuff.

At Bamboo Dental, we use three types of teeth straightening treatments:

  • Invisalign
  • Six Month Smiles
  • Inman Aligners

Invisalign. 3D Teeth Straightening Wizardry

If you’ve not heard of Invisalign, the name gives it away.

Invisalign uses a set of clear aligners to straighten your teeth. It fixes overcrowding and gaps in your teeth. And it’s removable so nice and easy to clean. Finally, before you start, you’ll get a 3D image of how perfect your teeth will look at the end of the treatment.

The average treatment time is just a little longer then the Six Month Smiles brace at around 6 months but you could see results in as little as 12 weeks. You can start to see straight teeth, pretty quick.

Six-Month Smiles? Yes Please!

Ok, it’s not the length of time your new smile will be on your face (that comes after the treatment), but the time it will take to get your teeth straight. Actually, the treatment time can be from 4 - 9 months, but the average is six months or under. Quick enough for straight teeth?

Six-Month Smiles aligns the teeth that show when you smile and uses a system of small clear brackets and tooth coloured wires giving you a quick teeth-straightening solution.

Straight Front Teeth, Fast? I’m In, Man!

Finally Inman Aligners are simple removable devices that guides your teeth into place. It’s used to straighten troublesome front teeth quickly and safely. It's not quite as ‘invisible’ as some other braces but you’ll hardly notice it and you’ll see results in 6 - 16 weeks.
