Orthodontics (Dental Braces)
It’s never too late to look and feel your best and tackle problems like crooked teeth, spaces between the teeth, or teeth that stick out and which can decrease your self-confidence.
Although most adults seek orthodontics for cosmetic reasons, many also seek treatment because of jaw dysfunction, excessive wearing of teeth and gum or hygiene problems.
Our approach is to concentrate on straightening teeth and on achieving harmony for your teeth, jaws and face. By focusing on the bigger picture, we achieve straight teeth, a healthy function of the jaw joints, a more pleasing appearance and long lasting results.
There are several types of braces, both fixed or removable, and at London Smiling we work with you to choose the best solution to straighten your teeth:
These are often referred to as the ultimate cosmetic brace. Invisalign is a revolutionary new way for teeth straightening without braces by using a series of nearly undetectable aligners instead of wires and brackets. The clear aligners move your teeth week by week, millimetre by millimetre, to the desired position.
Using 3D computer technology, each of your Invisalign aligners is made to sit snugly over your teeth and, unlike normal braces, can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing.

Fixed Tooth Coloured Braces
These are the most common type of braces and used to be known as ‘train tracks’. Traditionally they were made of metal but we now have ceramic and clear brackets available so they are less noticeable.
These are totally invisible as they are bonded to the inner surface of your teeth. We use the latest CAD/CAM technology (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing technology) to make these as accurate and effective as possible.
The Inman Aligner is a unique way of straightening teeth. It uses nickel titanium technology to very gently but efficiently move teeth. It takes considerably less time than other types of orthodontic appliances – sometimes as little as 4 weeks.
