Ceramic Braces

Patient 1

This patient had severe upper crowding. He was particularly embarrassed about the instanding upper lateral incisors and the prominent canines. He was treated with self-ligating fixed appliances to align his teeth without any permanent tooth extractions.

Patient 3

Karen was unhappy with her divergent upper incisors and her ageing dentition. She preferred not to have a lower brace, so an upper clear brace was used and the upper central teeth were enhanced with tooth coloured composite. She also had a new lower crown.

Patient 4

Clarity Advanced braces were used to close the large spaces which the patient found embarrassing.

He was understandably very unhappy with the gaps and often hid his smile as he was very self-conscious. Upper and lower ceramic braces were used to close the gaps and align the teeth. Permanent retainers were fitted and the importance of retention stressed. He is totally delighted and can’t stop smiling. Treatment duration was 18 months.

Metal/Gold Braces

Patient 1

This patient was miserable due to her teeth. She had an ectopic canine tooth in the palate, narrow upper dental arch, and prominent and rotated upper teeth. The ectopic tooth was aligned using a surgically attached gold chain and she had two upper premolars extracted along with a quad helix and fixed metal braces. Treatment time was over 24 months but "well worth it!"

Metal/Gold Braces

Patient 1

There was minimal crowding of the teeth. However, this troubled the patient to the extent that she rarely smiled. She had been refused treatment elsewhere and was very embarrassed, so she opted for hidden Incognito braces that were fitted on the back of her teeth. She was delighted with the result, which only took a few months.

This patient was deeply distressed by her reverse bite. She also disliked the crowding and did not wish to have jaw surgery to correct the main cause of this. She opted instead to have extraction of four teeth and fixed braces to move the teeth into the correct relationship.

Invisalign®

Patient 1

Many people wrongly believe that an important event or deadline can complicate orthodontic treatment and visible braces could spoil a special occasion. In this case, Invisalign® clear aligners were chosen as they could be removed for her wedding day and treatment could continue up to and after the event, without any detriment.

Invisalign®

Patient 2

This patient disliked the alignment of her front teeth and the lack of an overlap when she closed together. As she worked in the cosmetic sales industry, a visible brace was not an option. She opted for the convenience of Invisalign® invisible braces.

Patient 3

This patient had Invisalign® clear aligners as she did not want to have any fixed braces.

She disliked the prominence of her upper front teeth and the crowding of her lowers. There was an instanding upper incisor and a missing lower incisor tooth. She chose Invisalign® clear aligners as she was uncomfortable with the thought of any metal in her mouth. Treatment time was 21 months.

Metal/Gold braces

Patient 1

This young professional had previously had two upper teeth and one lower tooth extracted. He was unhappy with the crookedness and asymmetry of his smile. There was also significant tooth wear related to his “edge to edge” bite. Incognito lingual braces were used to align the arches, correct the asymmetry and improve his bite. This was followed by anterior cosmetic dental treatment to achieve this fantastic smile.

Patient 3

Previously, this young patient had lost her two upper central incisors in an accident and worn a removable denture ever since. She was quite fed up and could not believe that she could have hidden lingual braces to realign the teeth correctly, before replacing the missing teeth with a bridge. At no point did any of her friends suspect she was wearing braces! We were able to place temporary replacement teeth directly into the Incognito brace without anyone knowing!

This patient was unhappy with his narrow smile and the dark spaces between the teeth and cheeks. Incognito braces were used to broaden the arches and provide a fuller, straighter smile. An implant was subsequently placed in the idealised lower space.
