Perfect your smile with our dentist in West Byfleet
If you are unhappy about the look of your smile then you will be prone to smiling less than you would like to. This can not only affect your self-confidence and self-esteem, but over time can have a negative impact on many aspects of your life. Teeth which are misaligned or protruding are also more prone to disease and damage. This is because crooked and wonky teeth are harder to clean, as your brush or floss will not always reach those nooks and crannies in which bacteria will then build up and thrive. Increased bacteria in the mouth leads to increased plaque and tartar build-up on your teeth, which is the main cause of an array of dental illnesses, ranging from bad breath to gum disease and even tooth loss.

For patients who require extensive orthodontic treatment they will benefit from a fixed form of dental brace, whereas those with mild or minor imperfections may wish to find out about removable orthodontics. This completely depends on your dental requirements and your personal preferences. Subtle orthodontics can be both fixed or removable. For fixed orthodontic treatment you are looking at options such as lingual braces and ceramic braces. These braces work in the same way as traditional orthodontic treatment; however they are almost invisible in the mouth. Ceramic braces are coloured to match your natural dentition whilst lingual braces are attached to the backs of your teeth, so that they cannot be seen. Both are highly effective at straightening your teeth, especially if you have extensive orthodontic treatment necessary to help correct your smile. Removable dental appliances include treatment options such as Invisalign, which is a highly popular method of teeth straightening where the aligners apply gradual pressure on your teeth to push them into position. This is a highly convenient treatment procedure, which is almost invisible and the aligners can be taken out of your mouth and placed back in as necessary.
