You’d be surprised how many people we meet at the Straight Teeth Suite in Loughborough are embarrassed to smile. Even minor so-called ‘defects’ can make an individual self-conscious and disrupt their daily lives in subtle ways. It’s a very common problem, partly because we place such a high premium on our smiles.

In the video below, one patient explains her journey of going through lingual braces treatment:

Most people associate braces with young people, school-age teenagers with a mouthful of metal, but the truth is that the invisible braces available today are ideal for older individuals who may have missed out on treatment in their youth.

As a recent patient told us:

“I was very unhappy about my teeth. They were very crowded and they really looked a mess. I was embarrassed. I was a little bit nervous about having braces.  I wanted it, but I was too old and it’s a little bit vain, but it was best thing I could have had done. It’s been a really positive experience.”

You don’t have to go through life with crooked teeth; there is something that you can do about it today. At the Straight Teeth Suite in Loughborough, we are big fans of lingual braces because they can provide a new lease of life for many older people. Women and men in their twenties, thirties and forties have benefitted from this treatment for misaligned teeth and have gone home with more confidence and a better smile.

For adults, the important feature of lingual braces is that they are not visible, which means you don’t have to walk around the workplace with a mouthful of embarrassing metal, which is something that frequently put people off improving the alignment of their teeth in the past.

According to our patient, it was partly the enthusiastic approach of the Straight Teeth Suite that persuaded her to undergo treatment in later life:

“Everyone seems really enthusiastic about the treatment as well, so it was like everyone was pleased each time I came and my teeth were a bit better. It was great.”

The whole process is designed not to be noticeable, which is why many people are beginning to come forward to get the smile they’ve always wanted. Lingual braces are perhaps one of the fastest growing dental cosmetic procedures around today, and the technology that has been developed is both highly successful and affordable.

Patients are generally surprised by the results once they have had a lingual brace fitted, and many wonder why they left it so long to straighten their teeth.  “I’m really, really happy with the result, very happy with my teeth. Other people have noticed, which is nice. I had a lingual brace at the top, which is one that you actually can’t see at all because it’s behind the teeth. I felt that was good for me. It was less noticeable.”
