Many people associate orthodontic treatment with lengthy amounts of time… However, with the technology and advancements of the last few decades, it’s easier than ever to get the straighter smile you’ve been dreaming of.
Smile Rapide at Park Lane
Here at Park Lane, we have our own range of short-term orthodontic treatments for those who don’t require more complex treatment or a strictly traditional approach. Our very own treatment ‘Smile Rapide’, focuses primarily on straightening a patient’s front teeth in a short space of time (the clue is in the name)! We particularly recommend this type of treatment for occasions such as a wedding, when you want to look your best in a short time.
Smile Rapide aims to produce results in less than a year and does not require us to take impressions of your teeth, which is a factor that shortens the process significantly – this also means you do not have to pay additional laboratory costs.
If you aren’t suitable for fast braces there are more discreet options available to you and here’s more information about them:
Fixed clear braces
Fixed clear braces are a great alternative to fixed metal braces, which can put patients off due to their visibility. They are translucent ceramic braces which means they blend in with the natural colour of your teeth and with the use of tooth-coloured wires there is no need to compromise on aesthetics.
What could be better than a barely visible brace? How about one that can be taken out! Invisalign is a different way to straighten teeth. Its a series of clear aligners that are worn for 22 hours a day and changed every 2 weeks. Each aligner gradually nudges the teeth into position, leading to straighter teeth. As you can remove it for eating, drinking and cleaning it’s an ideal way to have braces when you have a busy life. It’s also suitable for teenagers too – great if they play brass or wind instruments or a budding singer.
Invisible lingual braces
This type of brace is placed behind your front teeth, making them barely noticeable to others. Like fixed clear braces, these deliver fast results and there is no compromise on quality. Lingual braces have the components of traditional metal braces such as brackets and archwires but because they are fitted behind the teeth they are hidden from view.
