In order to achieve the perfect smile your dentist can use a range of treatments, this includes straightening crooked teeth with orthodontic braces.
Teeth straightening is one of the most minimally invasive ways you can achieve a perfect smile. Orthodontic teeth braces twist and move teeth to be in perfect alignment, usually without having to extract or remove healthy tooth structure from your teeth.
Teeth straightening treatments can also be augmented with teeth whitening for a brighter smile and/or cosmetic bonding to in your teeth.

Teeth straightening frequently asked questions
Is teeth straightening safe?
Yes, teeth straightening is very safe as it is usually one of the most conservative and minimally invasive treatment options available to achieve a perfect smile.
How does teeth straightening work?
Teeth straightening with orthodontics works by applying pressure to specific areas of your tooth. This pressure can be used to twist, tip or move teeth in a particular direction. The skill with orthodontic braces is being able to apply exactly the right amount of pressure in exactly the right price to move the tooth in the desired way. This pressure to move teeth can be applied using conventional orthodontics with brackets bonded to your tooth and wire between. Alternatively that same pressure can be applied with a clear appliance such as Invisalign.
Can retainers straighten teeth?
No. Retainers are passive appliances and are there purely to maintain your teeth in their final position after having orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic braces are active appliances which move your teeth.
Can adults straighten their teeth?
Yes. With the advent of more cosmetically appealing orthodontic appliances, such as Invisalign more and more adults are choosing to have their teeth straightened with orthodontics. In the past adults didn’t like to have orthodontic treatment as the only options were conventional metal train track braces, however these days are now gone and adults can have straighter teeth often in around six months.
