Braces and aligners for adult teeth straightening

In the modern day and age, braces don’t have to be obvious and metal, and teeth straightening need not always involve using fixed braces at all. Ace Dental in Camden is always keen to extol the virtues of straightening your teeth whatever your age, and offers a number of subtle ways to do so.

Whilst most adult patients come to our Camden dental practice for orthodontic treatment because they are concerned about the appearance of their teeth, there are more than just aesthetic benefits to be gained from teeth straightening.

Whether you use braces or aligners, straightening your teeth makes them easier to keep clean. As long as you visit your dentist and hygienist on a regular basis, and have a good dental care routine at home, straightening your teeth can reduce your risk of both dental decay and gum disease – two leading causes of tooth loss.

Camden braces and aligners

When you come into Ace Dental in Camden for a teeth straightening consultation, your dentist will conduct a thorough clinical examination before talking you through the pros and cons of all our relevant treatments, enabling you to make an educated choice.

Depending on your clinical needs, we may recommend:

Six Month Smiles

Most adults are primarily concerned about the alignment of the teeth that show when they smile. Often called the “social six” teeth, it is these that Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces focus on.

These braces comprise clear and tooth-coloured parts, so will blend in with the natural colour of your teeth. They also use lower forces than traditional orthodontic appliances, so are more comfortable to boot.


This system of clear, removable aligners is a popular choice at our Camden clinic. They fit over your teeth and gently guide them into a new position, and because they are removable they have minimal impact on your lifestyle.

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a single-use aligner used to quickly correct issues with the front teeth. It uses gentle special forces to correct issues such as protrusion or crowding, and takes as little as six weeks to work, making it one of the fastest teeth straightening options at our Camden clinic.
