Cosmetic Orthodontics

This is a branch of dentistry which is concerned with correcting misaligned teeth purely for cosmetic reasons and focuses on the teeth visible when you smile. This is a particularly good treatment if you have suffered mild relapse after orthodontic treatment, or you have misaligned front teeth only. Treatment can typically be completed within a short space of time and often much quicker than conventional orthodontics.

Examples of the types of braces used for cosmetic orthodontic treatment are:

Many people are not happy with how their front teeth look when they smile but are put off wearing braces because they don't want to wear visible metal braces for a year or two. ClearSmile Brace is a rapid and aesthetic orthodontic system that focuses mainly on the front 10 teeth. The speed and less visible appearance of ClearSmile Brace make it a highly appealing option that can fit anyone's lifestyle.

What is the ClearSmile Brace system?

It is a type of short term orthodontics, which means that average treatment time is between 6 and 9 months, and combines traditional orthodontic techniques with cosmetic braces. We use small tooth coloured brackets which are bonded to the teeth, and a thin fixed wire to move them.

Why choose ClearSmile Braces?

It will correct 80% of any tooth position problems. The outcome is predictable, and the brace is aesthetic.

Are Clearsmile Braces for me?

If you feel your teeth are crooked, crowded or with some spaces between them, or you feel they don’t look symmetrical, then there’s a good chance 6MS will work for you.

When will it not work?

As the dentist, our job is to firstly work out why your teeth are not straight. If the teeth are not straight because of the shape of the jaw or the alignment of the jaws, then 6MS may not be for you.

Choose Clearsmile Braces if....

You want to see improvement in your smile in a shorter treatment time.

Invisalign® Tooth Straightening

Invis Aligners

Invisalign can help you get the great smile you've always wanted because it's... invisible, so no one can tell you're straightening your teeth. So now you can smile more during treatment as well as after.

Removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are no problem.

Comfortable, because it has no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments.

Invisalign® also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. And it's been proven effective in both clinical research and in practices nationwide.

How does Invisalign® work?

  • You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed.
Before and After Invisalign Treatment
  • You'll visit your orthodontist or dentist about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
