Enjoy a healthy smile with modern braces

Are crowded, unevenly spaced or misaligned teeth making you feel self-conscious? Crooked teeth can affect how you feel about your smile. They can also make your teeth harder to clean, which can result in inflamed or painful gums and, in severe cases, can even lead to tooth loss. If your top and bottom teeth do not line up, you may also find that biting and chewing is difficult.


Straighter teeth are within reach

At Sheen Dental in Richmond, braces have been used for many decades to straighten teeth. Advances in dentistry mean that treatment with braces is faster, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Braces use a system of wires and brackets or retainers. These apply gentle pressure on the teeth to move them into the desired position. Impressions, photos and x-rays are taken at the start of the treatment. This enables you and your dentist to decide on the best course of action. The continued use of retainers after the treatment is complete ensures that your teeth will not move back to their former positions.

A beautiful smile at any age

We fit braces in Richmond for children and adults. Early treatment for your child means they can avoid long-term problems with their teeth and facial development. If you are an adult who missed the chance for braces treatment as a child, you can still achieve straighter teeth today and enjoy a healthy, more confident smile. With a wide range of braces available, we can help you find the right fit for your lifestyle, factoring in your dental health, cost and convenience.

Advanced techniques

Having a mouthful of metal is no longer the only option available for people needing braces in Richmond. Ceramic or clear brackets offer a far more discreet and comfortable option. There are also lingual braces that fit behind the teeth, where they are hidden from view. Clear plastic mouth trays are also available and are almost invisible to the untrained observer.

Whether you are looking to enhance your own smile or ensure the health of your child’s teeth, get in touch with us at Sheen Dental to discuss how we can help you with braces in Richmond.
