Can I have braces when I have a crown in Nottingham?

Posted on: August 27th, 2014 by freshadmin No Comments

One of the most commonly asked questions by patients that already have a crown is whether they can wear braces as well or if having a crown is restrictive to orthodontic treatments of any sort.

Truth is, nothing can stop you from acquiring that wonderful smile you have always been dreaming off, even if you have crowns! At Straight Teeth Suite, in Nottingham, we can make sure you get the best of both treatments.

How we do it?

We bond your bracket with a special bond enhancer and just carry out your routine treatment! No matter how simple it may sound, it takes skilled, trained, and experienced dentists to apply this treatment. You do need to have your brackets successfully bonded to your crown(s), which is a challenging task untrained professionals cannot deliver efficiently, if at all. You can’t imagine how easy it is for braces to come off, if not applied properly and bonded to your crown(s). The inconvenience caused though could be skipped if you knocked on the right door…

We, at Straight Teeth Suite, have managed to reduce the risks of debonds with the use of a special bond enhancer.

The following example is distinctive of the work done at Straight Teeth Suite, in Nottingham.

6 months braces

Here is a case of a male patient, who hated his front crown, but also wanted to straighten his teeth at the same time and was treated by Dr. Raha Sepehrara.

The treatment was divided into 3 carefully planned stages:

  1. We selected the 6 Month Smiles treatment as the most suitable to the patient’s needs.  It only took us 5 months to reach the desired results, though! After the patient had straight teeth, we proceeded to the next step.
  2. Whitening is a recommended treatment after teeth-straightening that gives a splendid final outcome and enhances a smile.
  3. We used superior quality porcelain (produced by a highly-skilled lab technician, of course), to have a new crown on the upper left lateral incisor. Dr. Kalpesh Bohara, our missing teeth experts carried out this procedure.

You can’t tell the new crown from the rest of the teeth, which means another of our treatments is…crowned by complete success! You can see the outstanding results by yourself. Utmost discretion and excellent work done at all times is absolutely guaranteed.

Two (2) Important Points to Note

  • We may have reduced the risk of debonding, but the risk does exist and your brackets may come off more easily if you have a crown. In order to avoid this unwanted situation as much as possible, it is important you are extra careful with what you eat. Also, habits that increase the risk of debonding should also be taken care of (see nail-biting).
  • There is always a chance your crown margin may become visible after teeth straightening. This means you may need a new crown after your orthodontic treatment is complete. Why does this happen (sometimes)? Because once the teeth have been removed, the end of the crown can become visible from the gum.

In order to avoid unnecessary costs and inconvenience, you can ask for our expert’s opinion before starting your braces treatment. Dr. Raha Sepehrara is always available for a FREE consultation so you can have all your questions answered.

6 Months Braces: The best Straight Teeth Option for Adults in Loughborough

Posted on: July 28th, 2014 by freshadmin No Comments

Are you among those adults that feel somewhat withdrawn from wearing braces to get straight teeth and a beautiful smile, because they think braces are for children, are not aesthetically pleasing, and takes forever to wear them? Forget all about it…

Good news is that Straight Teeth Suite has a fantastic straight teeth treatment that is not only discreet, but also fast. The 6 Month Braces is the most preferred teeth straightening option in Loughborough, and our dentist was one of the first in the COUNTRY to have received full training in this system. Ever since, she has completed hundreds of cases, all crowned with utmost success.

The 6 Months Braces treatment is particularly loved by brides, judged by the hundreds of future wives that have trusted us with their orthodontic treatment, just before they walk down the aisle! They have all ended up far more confident smiling for their special days, which makes us extremely proud and happy! What is more, with 6 Months Braces, it is like wearing braces without wearing them! Meaning, they are so discreet that it is hardly unlikely someone that doesn’t know you are on a straight teeth treatment will notice you are wearing braces! This is why plenty of adults choose to have this treatment done over any other. You can refer to our patients’ feedback and read amazing reviews about our adult patients going passed unnoticed while having braces, up to the very end of their treatment, when they showed off their new smiles!

What is 6 Months Braces Treatment?

It is a treatment that consists of fixed tooth coloured braces (almost transparent) attached to the front of the teeth. What is great about this treatment is that the wires used are also  tooth-coloured and allow the teeth to move. Unlike other orthodontic treatments, with 6 Months Braces you don’t have to take the braces out when you drink or eat; so, nothing stops you from enjoying such daily pleasures!

Who Does 6 Months Braces Appeal to?

People with healthy gums and teeth and patients that want to fix up to 8 front teeth (both jaws included). Furthermore, it is the ideal straight teeth option if you don’t face any serious bite issues (see overbites, crossbites, and underbites). Therefore, If you see a reflection of yourself somewhere in between these lines, you are a definitely an excellent candidate for the 6 Months Braces treatment!

What are my Options after the Completion of the Treatment?

Once your orthodontic treatment is complete, you can opt for tooth whitening to achieve a beautiful straight white smile. Also, as a means to ensure your excellent result is maintained for long, you will need to have retainers at the end of the treatment, so we make sure your teeth don’t move back to their original position.

You are only a step away from getting your self-confidence back and starting spreading lovely, enchanting smiles to the world. Just allow us, at Straight Teeth Suite in Loughborough, to contribute the best we know we can, and you will soon see wonders happening all around you, deriving from your great, smiley attitude towards life!

What are the benefits of 6 months braces in Loughborough

Posted on: July 10th, 2014 by freshadmin No Comments

When it comes to adult orthodontics, Dr. Sepehrara is a pioneer, as she has brought the 6 Months Braces treatment, also referred to as 6 Month Smiles, to the East Midlands and was one of the first dentists in the UK to offer the treatment. The founder and Clinical Director of Straight Teeth Suite has introduced a teeth straightening system in Loughborough that has become very popular overtime, due to the fantastic results achieved! No matter how simple or complex a case, we guarantee a beautiful smile as the end result. Why are we so confident? Because we have accumulated a wealth of experience and have successfully treated all sorts of cases, in the field of adult orthodontics.
What are the Benefits of the 6 Months Braces in Loughborough?

    • To begin with, the 6 Months Braces treatment is much faster than any traditional orthodontic treatment. It will take you as little as 4 months to achieve a great smile, while the treatment may also need up to 10 months tops, which is still very little, compared to the 2 full years you would need, when wearing traditional braces.
    • It is a very discreet treatment that allows you to wear colored braces that mimic the color of your teeth. We also use clear elastics, and colored wires to have an overall unnoticed result.
    • With 6 Months Braces, you will experience no speech problems, unlike other traditional treatments where you have to struggle to utter the words correctly.
    • You get a continuous non-end teeth straightening process, since you don’t have to take them out when eating. You can’t do that with other treatments!
    • You say goodbye to painful adjustment appointments. With 6 Months Braces, your visits to our practices are short and pain-free!
    • If you have gappy teeth, crowded teeth, sticky out teeth, or rotated teeth, we can still treat them and give you the beautiful smile you deserve.
    • Last, but not least, you have an expert team by your side all the way, looking after you. Since you are in good hands, you have nothing to worry about!

If you take a look into our huge portfolio of before and after cases, as well as our patients’ feedback, you will not only see the splendid results we have achieved with 6 Months Smiles, but also read how most of our adult patients, who have jobs dealing with the public, have commented on how no one notices they have braces on! Yes, 6 Months Braces are THAT discreet!
Why is this treatment faster than others?
This is a common question asked by the majority of our patients. The 6 Months Smiles treatment takes significantly less time than traditional braces, mainly due to the fact that we are only moving the front teeth with this treatment, while with traditional braces, we move all of your teeth including the back ones, which take longer to move.

Furthermore, we do not take out teeth with this treatment. Usually, when the extraction of 2-4 teeth is required, it takes at least 18 months to close those spaces. What we do is create space by using a procedure called Interproximal Reduction (IPR), which involves the shaving off of your enamel, by just a few micrometers, so enough space is created for the teeth to move. In some rare cases only (e.g. severe crowding of the bottom teeth), we may take a lower front tooth out. Don’t worry, though. The gap will close quickly, in about 2-3 appointments.

In this photograph, you can see a case treated by me where the patient wanted to straighten her really crooked and rotate her top front teeth. She didn’t want traditional braces and asked for something fast and discreet. With a combination of IPR, some expansion, and the discretion provided by the tooth colored wire used, we were able to achieve beautiful straight teeth within 6 months.
