Alternatives to braces

Do you have crowded teeth, crooked teeth or teeth that stick out?

Many adults have resigned themselves to feeling self-conscious about problems like these for the rest of their lives either because:

i) They think they've left it too late and that teeth straightening is only for children or

ii) They assume they would have to wear unsubtle, traditional metal braces that could make them feel even more self-conscious


The good news is that:

i) People of all ages can take advantage of orthodontic technology to enjoy the new confidence of an attractive, straight smile.

ii) Adults have more teeth straightening options than ever before including some "invisible" options as well as discrete, smaller metal braces.

You no longer need to feel embarrassed about wearing braces and you could have straight teeth within months.

Many adults say their teeth straightening treatment has changed their lives.

Alternative to braces to straighten teeth

Here are two "invisible" alternatives to traditional braces for adults:


Invisalign clear, plastic aligners are tailor-made to fit snugly over your teeth, which means most people will have no idea you're wearing them.

You can take them out for things like eating and brushing your teeth but, for the best results, you should wear them for 20-22 hours a day.

At the start of your treatment, we'll give you several sets of bespoke plastic aligners.

Each set of aligners, which you should wear for one or two weeks at a time, slowly push your teeth towards their final, straight position.

You could have straight teeth within months of starting your treatment.

Lingual braces

"Invisible" lingual braces are placed at the back of the teeth. They're completely hidden so no one need know you're being treated.

Lingual braces, which can be used to straighten a single tooth or a number of teeth, use wires and brackets to steadily straighten your teeth.

With life-changing lingual braces, fitted at Wytes, you can also enjoy a confidence-boosting smile in months.


Maybe you've never liked the way your teeth looked or maybe you feel your teeth have become worse over the years.

Either way, it's time to stop worrying about your smile.

It's never been easier for adults to enjoy attractive, straight teeth and you can achieve this without wearing unsubtle, old-fashioned metal braces.
