Invisalign: The nearly invisible way to straighten teeth.
Invisalign is a revolutionary clear aligner system that is perfect for those who don't want to openly wear fixed train track braces. We find that many adults hold back from obtaining their perfect smile due to the worry about being judged for wearing a brace as an adult. This belief is now becoming more and more irrelevant as braces are now so commonly worn amongst adults. However, many still feel self conscious about wearing them. Enter Invisalign. Invisalign is a great option as a type of braces for adults. The system comes as a series of clear aligners that fit snugly to your teeth much like a very thin gum shield. However, each successive aligner will be shaped slightly closer from your original teeth layout to your desired straight smile. As your teeth adapt to the aligner we move on to the next one in the sequence. Eventually you will have a beautiful healthy smile and nobody will be able to understand how it happened!
Six Month Smiles: Straight teeth in just six months
For the no nonsense adult seeking speedy results we have Six Month Smiles. This system is a fixed brace although it is still fairly discreet sporting clear brackets and tooth coloured wires. Bamboo Dental are the leading provider of Six Month Smiles in Wales. Our head dentist, Dr Dan is therefore extremely experienced with this treatment and is able to achieve incredible results with his patients.

The trade off
Ultimately there is a trade off here. What is most important to you - the speed that your brace will work or the level of discreteness that you can achieve whilst progressing through your journey? Answering this question will give you a great idea of the right treatment for you.
