Braces for straight, healthy teeth
With treatment times as little as 6 months to complete and an option to suit everyone, QuickStraightTeeth™ can restore your confidence, boost your self-esteem and give you a beautiful smile
QuickStraightTeeth™ is one of the most widely used orthodontic systems in the world. It uses nearly-invisible braces to gently straighten your teeth, and give you that smile you’ve always dreamed of. The word ‘braces’ can conjure up images of old-fashioned ‘train-tracks’ or Ugly Betty! However, you will be pleasantly surprised with QuickStraightTeeth™. The braces look beautiful and discreet with top quality tooth-coloured brackets and wires - making them virtually invisible. Most people won’t know you are wearing braces at all and treatments can take as little as 6 months to complete.
QuickStraightTeeth (QST) is only used on the front 6 or 8 teeth, to correct mild misalignment and give you a beautiful smile. Because it’s just the front teeth, the force required is minimal. The wires exert mild pressure to move the teeth, and this is done without the need for severe tightening which causes the discomfort sometimes experienced in conventional orthodontic treatments.
We mainly use 3M brackets for teeth straightening as they have a reliable and proven track-record worldwide for their performance, beautiful aesthetics, and they are nearly invisible once placed in the mouth. We also use tooth coloured wires, making our braces the most aesthetic compared with many similar systems.
These brackets are an alternative to the conventional QuickStraightTeeth brackets. These do not require elastic ties, making the process easier and more aesthetically pleasing.
Damon Self-Ligating brackets offer the following:
Fixed, ‘train tracks’ are not the look we go for here at Springmount Dental & Aesthetics! With an option to suit everyone, QuickStraightTeeth™ can boost your confidence, raise your self-esteem, and give you a winning smile.
Getting a beautiful straight smile is fast! Treatments for teeth straightening take between 4 and 24 weeks, depending on complexity. However, QuickStraightTeeth™ works by only concentrating on the front 6 to 8 teeth. The invisible brace can correct mild to moderate problems quickly, making it more affordable than similar options and more agreeable to patients.
Our brackets and wires are all tooth coloured, and designed to blend in and appear nearly invisible in the mouth - giving you the ability to get straight teeth quickly, without large, bulky braces. Most people will be unable to tell you are wearing QuickStraightTeeth™ invisible braces at all.
Our adult braces have been designed to ensure optimum wearability and comfort. You can rest assured that we only use the very best 3M, gold standard products to ensure the best outcome for our patients.
Yes you will. It is our belief that retention is for life! Teeth have a tendency to continually move throughout a lifetime, so the more we can do to prevent that, the better. We can provide all necessary retention. Any patient not taking up this option will assume responsibility for the teeth drifting back to their original position.
As with all tooth movements, treatment comes with a calculated risk. QuickStraightTeeth™ takes every precaution to make sure this procedure is as safe as can be.
Patients who have a mild to moderate crowding or protrusion of their front teeth could well be suitable for treatment with QuickStraightTeeth™. At Springmount Dental & Aesthetics we offer patients a FREE consultation to assess your suitability for teeth straightening treatment.
You need to wear your aligners (clear braces) at all times during treatment, apart from when eating, brushing or flossing teeth. Remember our clear braces will only work if you’re wearing them! Ideally, a patient should wear the Aligner for 20 hours a day, every day. Any less and the treatment could take longer to complete. Remember we want you to achieve results quickly! It is acceptable to remove the appliance for special occasions, such as photographs or important meetings, but they should be replaced as soon as practicably possible.
As with all Orthodontic treatments, QuickStraightTeeth™ will take a short space of time for you to adjust to the clear brace. QuickStraightTeeth™ has developed a range of clear braces that reduce discomfort significantly. Patients only ever feel minimal discomfort for a couple of days, after which your mouth adjusts to the appliance. We have had no complaints about any major or long term discomfort.
The total duration of treatment will depend on the complexity of the treatment. The average treatment time is 1 – 6 months depending on complexity. You will be given an estimation of the total treatment time after a consultation with your dentist.
