Traditional Type of Braces

Train Track style braces are by far the most popular option for patients who are not concerned about wearing an orthodontic appliance. The benefit of traditional style braces is that they are working 100% of the time and your orthodontist has the most control over your tooth movement and therefore, the result.

This type of brace is right for you if you have moderate to severe crowding or a deep or complex bite. It can be used to treat even the most complicated of malalignments.

Fee for one arch of treatment from £1800

Tooth Coloured Traditional Type of Braces

Much like the aforementioned traditional braces, the tooth coloured version is 99% suitable for everyone. with the exception of those that have a deep or destructive bite. This is because the ceramic that they are made from is harder than the metal version and if your teeth bite into the edge of a bracket, it’s likely your enamel will come worse off.

This option is the best type of brace for you if you aren’t too bothered about actually wearing braces, but would prefer them to be a little more discreet. From a couple of feet away – people won’t notice that you’re wearing a brace at all!

Fast Types of Braces

If you have a really mild case, we may be able to treat your crowding in as little as 14 weeks! Invisalign offers an i7 treatment that promised to correct your front smiling teeth in just 7 sets of aligners! (Each set of aligners is worn or 2 weeks each)

This is the best option for you if you do not want a full orthodontic correction as the treatment will not address or align all of your teeth. It focuses on the smiling front 6 teeth alone.

Fee for one arch of treatment from £1750

Invisible or Lingual Braces

These are the ferrari of the type of braces that we offer. The newest and most invisible brave option of them all. Fitted to the back of your teeth they will straighten any and all malalignments and discrepancies – from the inside. Not one will know you’re wearing braces at all. They do take a bit of getting used to and can affect your speech for a few weeks after they have been fitted – but 99% of our lingual patients will agree that it is worth it for the ultimate in discreet orthodontics.

Lingual braces are the best option for you if you cannot bear the thought of anyone seeing you wearing braces. Actors, Models, Celebrities and TV personalities (even Royalty) have opted for this secret brace treatment.

Fee for one arch of treatment from £2950
