How can we help?

Have you struggled with the look of your smile for years? Are you conscious of your misaligned or buck teeth? Have you decided that 2017 is the year you’re going to take steps towards a brilliant new smile? If so, you may be thinking about treatment options. Here are some of our incredible cosmetic braces to give you food for thought.

Removable braces

Removable braces are incredibly popular because they give you more flexibility during treatment. You can remove them when you want to eat, drink or brush your teeth, and this makes life a lot easier. There’s also the option to take them out if you’re going to a special occasion or event. We offer both invisible and barely visible solutions, including:

  • Invisalign
  • Simpli5
  • Inman Aligner
  • Perfect Clear

Perfect Clear, Simpli5 and Invisalign are clear aligner systems, which use a series of bespoke removable plastic braces to address misalignment. The Inman Aligner is slightly different; it is made from a coiled spring and a metal bar, and it works by generating forces that squeeze the teeth, causing them to move. The Inman Aligner does have a visible metal bar, which runs along the front of the teeth; however, treatment only takes 16 weeks and the brace is a lot less visible than traditional fixed braces. Generally speaking, removable braces are recommended for patients with minor or moderate needs.

Fixed braces

Fixed braces used to be bulky and unsightly, but things have changed remarkably. Today’s fleet of fixed braces offers security and guaranteed results, as well as discreet aesthetics. Our fixed brace treatments include:

  • Damon Braces
  • CFast
  • Six Month Smiles
  • Lingual braces: Incognito and STb Social 6

Damon Braces are an aesthetically pleasing, rapid, and comfortable alternative to traditional fixed braces; they use innovative technology, including sliding brackets, to straighten the teeth around 4-6 months faster than conventional braces. These braces are also made from ceramic materials, so they look more discreet. Damon Braces can achieve a lot of movement and this makes them a great option for patients with complex needs.

Both CFast and Six Month Smiles are fast-acting fixed brace systems, which focus on the front teeth. Treatment can usually be completed in 6 months, and both braces are made from transparent and tooth coloured materials for superior aesthetics. Ideally, these systems are suited to those with minor or moderate needs.

Lingual braces are different to our other fixed brace options because they are fixed to the back of your teeth; this enables you to undergo treatment in secret. When your braces are in place, you can smile without anybody knowing you’re wearing them. Our lingual braces systems include STb Social 6, which is a perfect choice for those with minor issues, and Incognito, which is suited to those who require intensive treatment.
