The Smart Clinics Dentistry team offer a wide range of orthodontic treatments, offering patients choice and expert advice about the style of programme they choose to straighten their teeth.
The importance of a great smile cannot be underestimated. First impressions are so important in face-to-face contact and it is never too late to transform your smile.
Many adults now have braces to improve their teeth for a variety of personal reasons, such as self-confidence, looking good in professional situations or in advance of a big event such as a wedding.
We also see many patients who have had braces before but are looking to the latest methods to improve their teeth again, correcting mild irregularities that have become more apparent over the years. A short course of treatment can be very effective in restoring perfect alignment.
At Smart Smile Clinics’ London Orthodontics Centre, we have a keen interest in providing discreet treatment for adults seeking orthodontic treatment. Aside from a range of cosmetic appliances, we also offer invisible braces where no one will have to know you are having treatment.
Which Braces Should I Have?
There is no single answer to this question – each system has a number of unique advantages. The starting point is to have an orthodontic assessment to establish what you are trying to achieve and fully assess your teeth and your bite.
The orthodontist can then discuss the various approaches and recommend which is most appropriate for your needs.
To book a consultation or discuss your requirements further, please call our clinic on 020 7052 0070.

Invisalign® is probably the world’s best known brand of invisible braces.
In fact, over 2.5 million people worldwide have worn Invisalign braces to straighten their teeth.
The system gradually straightens teeth using a series of custom-made removable aligners that are practically invisible in use. The aligners are replaced fortnightly, incrementally moving your teeth into their final position.
As the whole treatment is planned on sophisticated computer technology, patients can see the final result before they even start on treatment.
In addition, it has been demonstrated that braces fitted behind the teeth can be better for dental health, as the damage which can occur as a result of poor brushing during treatment is likely to be less severe, less frequent and less visible.
Lingual braces are a popular choice with celebrities who are keen to improve their smile lines without being seen in braces.
Incognito braces are an advanced generation of customised fixed brace that is fitted to the back of the teeth.
This means that there are no visible brackets or wires from the front, yet the treatment is highly effective.
Incognito is an ideal choice for those patients who are keen to improve their teeth alignment for a straighter, more even smile; without feeling embarrassed or self-conscious.
The Damon Clear system offers advantages over both traditional braces and invisible aligners.
The process combines sliding brackets with high technology archwires to move teeth with less force as the wires are not tied in. However, this approach has been shown to align teeth quickly with fewer appointments than other systems and comfortably too, achieving excellent results for patients .
The braces are discrete to wear and less invasive than other teeth-straightening methods, making them a popular choice with patients of all ages.
Ceramic braces use brackets made of composite materials rather than a metal. The main edge of ceramic braces is without doubt their aesthetic and cosmetic appeal. They are available in various colours or levels of transparency to blend with the patient’s natural teeth for a less obvious look. The ceramic brackets do not stain or discolour in use, and are usually linked using either clear plastic wire or white wires.
However, there is no compromise on performance and results, as the fixed brace approach allows for excellent control in aligning the teeth.
Ceramic braces require regular adjustment by the orthodontist in order to manage the treatment and ensure progress towards a straighter smile.
Our dentists offer professional teeth whitening using GDC (General Dental Council) approved methods and techniques.
