Teeth Straightening

Teeth Straightening - Find a Local Dentist in the UK

Having your teeth straightened will improve your confidence in your appearance, and will also help you to maintain good dental hygiene.


Once you have found a dentist through Dentists Near Me you can make an appointment at which the dentist will assess what needs to be done and recommend what the best teeth straightening option for you would be.

Some of the teeth straightening treatments available are:

  • Invisalign® consists of teeth aligners that are clear and removable and that are worn every day, gradually straightening the teeth. These braces are often called ‘invisible braces’ because they are almost impossible to detect. Gaps between teeth can be closed and crooked teeth can also be corrected. An impression will be taken of your teeth and the aligners will be made to your specific requirements. You will need to go for a check up every 6 weeks with this treatment.
  • Six Month Smile® is a system designed to correct crooked, crowded or twisted teeth that can affect your confidence when you smile, and can also make good dental hygiene harder to achieve. The Six Month Smile's Lucid-Lok™ offers clear brackets and tooth coloured wires that can barely be seen as they work to move the teeth into the right position.
  • Lingual braces are a discreet alternative method of straightening teeth. The braces that are made to fit your teeth are fixed to the back of the teeth making them discreet and barely noticeable. They are fixed and will only be removed by your dentist at the end of the treatment.
  • Orthodontic metal braces for upper and lower jaw tooth straightening, braces that are metallic or ceramic are fixed to the front of the teeth and threaded together with wires that are gradually tightened and the gentle pressure applied will move the teeth into the correct position.
  • For straightening teeth on both your upper and lower jaws, metal or ceramic brackets can be fixed to the front of your teeth and threaded together with wires. These wires are gradually tightened over time, applying gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into the desired position.
  • The Inman Aligner applies gentle pressure to the teeth that are being moved. Once the position of the teeth has been corrected a very discreet retainer is fitted and that will hold them in place in the new position. This straightening treatment is used for the front teeth of the upper and lower jaw only.
