13 Jan Teeth Straightening in London: Is it Worth the Money?
Teeth straightening is an expensive treatment. We’d be lying if we said it wasn’t, but you probably already know this. You also probably know that crooked teeth negatively impact self-confidence and consequently your opportunities in life, both personally and professionally.
Having straight teeth will make a world of difference to your self-confidence. It can – if you’ll forgive the pretentious wording – be life-changing. With straight teeth, you’ll smile more and leave stronger, more positive impressions on the people you meet.
Straight teeth are healthier and easier to clean too. There is less build up of plaque and bacteria, keeping your gums and teeth at optimal health.
Here at Bright & White Dental Spa in South Woodford, London, we feel an enormous sense of gratification when our beaming patients return to tell us how their lives have dramatically changed for the better following teeth straightening treatment. There is no doubt in their minds that the cost of treatment outweighs the subsequent benefits it brings.
That’s why getting your teeth straightened is such a significant investment. The sooner you do it, the more confident you’ll feel and the more opportunities will arise.
How much does it cost to get your teeth straightened?
The cost of teeth straightening treatment is very much dependent on individual circumstances. Some dental malformations take longer to fix and are therefore more costly, while others may seem complex but are actually quick and easy to fix. The cost of treatment is roughly the same across the UK, including London.
Bright & White Dental Spa cater especially for busy, London-based professionals with hectic weekly schedules, by remaining open in the evenings and also on Saturdays.
These are our prices for teeth straightening treatments in 2017:
|Fast Braces||£2800 – £3500|
|Six Month Smiles||£1800 – £2500|
|Clear Removable Braces||£3000 – £4500|
All our teeth straightening treatments include complimentary whitening and retainers, and come with the option of a 12-month interest free finance plan.
How long do braces take to straighten teeth?
One thing you must realise before having your teeth straightened is that it takes time for the treatment to take effect. You must be patient. Some people’s treatment cycle can last merely 3-6 months (read more about Six Month Smiles here) while others must wait up to a year before their teeth are fully straightened.
Every patient’s dental formation is unique and this must always be taken into consideration. Therefore every set of dental braces is unique too. The time it takes braces to straighten teeth depends entirely on the severity of the malformation.
How can straight teeth improve your career?
For many patients, straight teeth lead to a better career, more success and wealth. A 2012 study conducted by Kelton Global – a globally recognised market research consultancy – revealed that people with a straighter smile are perceived to be 45% more likely to get a job when competing with someone who has a similar skill set and experience, with a crooked smile. Read more about the study here.
It’s a harsh reality but straighter smiles really do help career progression.
How can straight teeth improve your social life?
In the same study, a staggering 73% claimed that they would be more likely to trust someone with a nice smile than someone with a good job, outfit, or car. So it seems the key to building relationships and trust within them is smiling more.
In the busy working world of London, many young professionals use dating sites because they don’t have time to find a partner the ‘old-fashioned’ way. A straight, white smile isn’t necessarily the most important factor in this context but presenting the best version of yourself is what teeth straightening is all about. In fact, the same study revealed that 57% of people more inclined towards a partner with a straighter smile.
How can Bright & White Dental Spa help you?
Bright White Dental Spa has a long-standing reputation for high standards, discretion and efficiency. We can provide several flexible treatment plans that allow us to distinguish which method is best for you. These include:
The “almost invisible” way to straighten your smile without wearing conventional metal braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable custom-made aligners to move each tooth into place. As you remove your aligners before you eat and drink, there are no food restrictions or problems with flossing or brushing. This technology is also more comfortable and avoids the mouth abrasions that can be caused by the metal and wires of conventional braces.
This technology is the easiest, fastest, safest and most affordable way to straighten your teeth. With the patented triangular design of the braces, cutting edge techniques and a special heat-activated wire, this new technology is revolutionary.
This is a clear brace with small, tooth-coloured wires that are designed to blend in with the smile for ultimate discretion. These wires gently move the tooth into place causing minimal discomfort, and treatment is usually complete within four to nine months. The braces are also a cheaper alternative to traditional systems.
The benefits of these treatments extend past the aesthetics of a straighter smile right through to increased self-confidence and better oral health.
The start of a new calendar year is the perfect time to begin the process of teeth straightening, while you are motivated to improve your personal health. Myself and the hard-working team at Bright & White Dental Spa welcome any questions or discussions you would like to have about treatment. So please don’t hesitate to book in for a free consultation.
We’d love to hear from you 🙂
