Teeth Straightening – What Are the Options?

Everybody longs for that perfect set of teeth. Perfectly straight, white teeth that you can be proud of and have the confidence to show off. If you have crooked or uneven teeth it can really knock your confidence but there are treatments available that can remedy this.

Many people are put off by the thought of getting braces especially if you’re past your teens but with all the options that are available now you really don’t need to worry. Teeth straightening treatment can be rapid, very discreet and in some cases almost invisible. Here are some of the options we can offer you:

Inman Aligner:

The Inman aligner is a very versatile way of straightening teeth; it’s discreet and extremely hassle-free. There are no unsightly wires or brackets and it’s removable so you can easily pop it out when you’re eating. The Inman aligner is the ideal option when just a few front teeth need adjusting, it’s also a very quick option with treatment often only lasting between 8-12 weeks.


The Clearstep is a plastic aligner which is almost invisible and, just like the Inman aligner, it’s removable too. This form of treatment takes significantly longer (between 6 and 18months) however it can straighten teeth over a broader range than the Inman aligner.

Lingual Braces:

These braces are similar to fixed braces however they are completely invisible as the brackets and wires are placed on the back of your teeth. This treatment option is suitable for a wide range of problems – the duration of the treatment can vary from 6 to 14 months depending on the severity of the problem.
