If you have crooked teeth, overcrowding, an overbite or underbite, or even a misaligned jaw, you will need cosmetic braces to straighten your teeth and achieve a perfectly aligned smile.
While traditional metal braces will work the same way, cosmetic braces have the advantage of being unnoticeable or invisible.
Cosmetic braces are perfect for people who would prefer to avoid treatments with the stigma of obvious braces. They work as well as the traditional metal fixed braces without stealing anything from your confidence.
Cosmetic braces, also known as “clear braces” or “invisible braces,” are a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires to straighten teeth. They work in a similar way to traditional metal braces, but are less visible and can be a more appealing option for adults or older teenagers who are self-conscious about their appearance during treatment.
There are several types of cosmetic braces available, including:
1. Clear ceramic braces: These use clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured wires. They are less visible than traditional metal braces, but may not be as durable.
2. Clear aligners (Invisalign® Aligners): These are custom-made, clear plastic trays that fit snugly over the teeth. They are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating and brushing.
3. Lingual braces: These are similar to traditional metal braces, but the brackets and wires are placed on the back of the teeth, making them invisible from the front.
Cosmetic braces can be used to correct a variety of orthodontic issues, such as crowding, spacing, bite problems, and more. However, they may not be suitable for all cases and the dentist or orthodontist will need to evaluate the individual case to determine if cosmetic braces are the right option. The treatment time may vary depending on the case, but usually it takes between 6 to 18 months.
When getting braces, our orthodontic specialist will scan your mouth using the latest iTero® scanner to make a 3D model of your teeth and this will be submitted to the lab for manufacture of your bespoke treatment.
Braces and aligners can be made in as short as four to six weeks and can work in as fast as six months, depending on the complexity of the treatment.
First impressions last, and your smile will tell plenty about you.

The length of time you will need to wear braces can vary depending on the specific issues being treated and the type of braces you choose. Traditional metal braces typically need to be worn for 18-24 months, while clear or ceramic braces may need to be worn for slightly longer. Invisalign and other clear aligner options can vary from 6 to 18 months. It all depends on the severity of your individual case.
Our braces start from £5000 for both upper and lower arches. Cosmetic braces like Lingual braces and Invisalign® aligners are more bespoke and require greater knowledge and set of skills to be able to provide the high quality results our patients deserve and expect. We often see patients who have gone for cheaper options elsewhere but have not been happy with their results. This means they have to spend more money and time fixing what should have been done right in the first place.
We offer in-house payment plans to spread the cost of treatment or if you wish to save a little on the cost of treatment then you can take advantage of our 5% discount offered for payment in full.
Don’t waste your money and go for quality services.
You may experience some discomfort or soreness in your mouth after getting braces and after each adjustment appointment. This is usually minor and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
You will typically need to visit the orthodontist every 4-8 weeks to have your braces adjusted.
Some of our patients over the age of 70 years old have decided to have braces.
You can have braces at almost any age after all your adult teeth have come through.
Yes. If you have gum disease or any other dental problems, we will have to treat them first before you can be eligible for braces.
There are certain foods that should be avoided while wearing braces, such as hard or sticky candy, popcorn, and chewing gum, as these can damage the braces or dislodge the wires.
Unfortunately not. Once an implant has been placed and you decide later on that you would like to realign your teeth, braces will not be able to move the position of your implant.
A new implant crown could be made if the alignment of the existing implant is not in the correct position. One of our experienced team members would be able to advise on this.
It’s important to brush and floss your teeth regularly while you have braces to prevent plaque build-up and tooth decay. Your orthodontist may also recommend using an interdental brush or an oral irrigation device to help clean around the braces.
