Cosmetic teeth straightening focuses on moving the teeth visible in your smile line, usually your front 6 to 8 teeth.
As these treatments focus on fewer teeth, results can be achieved quicker than full orthodontic treatment, in as little as 6 months.
It is often more comfortable than may other orthodontic systems, as it uses less force to move the teeth ensuring it is gentler on the gums and soft tissue.
Treatment is discreet too! At Tisbury Dental & Implant Clinic we use a choice of clear ceramic brackets, to blend with your natural teeth, or near invisible removable aligners. These discreet options means your braces often go unnoticed.
As the name suggests, this treatment is a cosmetic treatment rather than orthodontic treatment. It won't correct any problems you have with the jaw alignment or bite, and therefore may not be suitable for all patients. We will invite you in for an initial consultation with a Tisbury Dental & Implant Clinic dentist, to establish your individual needs, and recommend the best options for a straightening solution for you.

Who can benefit from orthodontic treatment?
At Portman, we have treated thousands of patients, aged from eight to 88 years old. There is never a point in life where we cannot move healthy crooked teeth into their ideal positions.
Why are my teeth not straight?
There are many causes of overcrowding, gaps and crooked teeth. For some people it can be inherited or possibly acquired, either due to a habit (sucking of the thumb, prolonged use of a dummy), or because of the premature loss of milk teeth or adult teeth.
What other benefits does teeth straightening offer?
Orthodontic treatment improves chewing efficiency by re-establishing the correct relationship between lower and upper teeth, removing the difficulty you may have when chewing certain kinds of food, and so providing better nutrition.
In some cases, orthodontics can also prevent complications in the temporomandibular joint (the joint which joins the jaw to the skull). Chronic pain in the head, face, neck or ears, as well as dizziness, nausea and restricted ability to open and close the mouth can originate here.
