Cosmetic teeth straightening is also called short-term orthodontics or social orthodontics. This procedure is an aesthetic treatment that straightens the teeth within six months. It focuses on straightening the front teeth that are visible when you smile.
Cosmetic teeth straightening is mostly suitable for people who want a cosmetic fix for their misaligned teeth. The bones supporting the front teeth are less dense than those at the back, so treatment for straightening the front teeth may take less time.
Your dentist may recommend wearing removable aligners or clear brackets with tooth-coloured wires if you want to undergo cosmetic teeth straightening treatment. These treatments are less noticeable than traditional braces and gradually straighten the teeth
If you want to straighten your teeth for medical reasons, traditional braces may be more suitable as cosmetic braces may not correct your bite or improve the teeth function. Cosmetic teeth straightening is usually not suitable for some people, so you need to consult your dentist to know if you can undergo the process.
Cosmetic teeth straightening can improve your smile and appearance. Its main benefit is that it has a shorter treatment time than other teeth straightening treatments since it only corrects the front teeth.
Different cosmetic teeth straightening treatments are available, including Invisalign, Six Month Smiles, Inman Aligners and Cfast.
