If you are an adult with crooked teeth, you may be thinking about braces. However, most adults are not keen on spending a year or more in metal brackets and wires. Fortunately, discreet braces are becoming more mainstream and they are now available in many dental practices across the UK.
At Denchic, our offering of discreet braces in North London is for patients who wish to improve the alignment of their teeth without sacrificing their appearance. While the choice is ultimately your, we strongly advise you to book a consultation appointment so that our dentists can examine your teeth thoroughly.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign was introduced in cosmetic dentistry quite a while ago, but it received mainstream recognition only recently (partly due to its endorsement by celebrities). This treatment is one of the easiest and most innovative ways to straighten your teeth without using metal. Invisalign is made of a series of clear aligners made of a special thermoplastic material that is very durable and can sustain tooth movement. These aligners will slowly reposition your teeth over a specific period of time (which is different for each patient).
With Invisalign, your dentist will take accurate impressions of your teeth using digital technology. Once you receive your aligners, you will need to change them every 7-10 days according to your dentist’s instructions. Invisalign aligners are very sensitive to dental movements and should be changed according to the plan your dentist has created for you.
What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a non-customised teeth-straightening system that consists of tooth-coloured brackets and metal wires. Six Month Smiles can move the front upper and lower teeth within a limited amount of time, but is not ideal for complex dental problems including jaw or bite problems. The combination of low-movement forces and short overall treatment time increases the benefits of this system.
As with Invisalign, once your treatment is over, your dentist may suggest wearing removable retainers for a specific period of time.
We want to help you achieve the smile of your dreams
If a beautiful and healthy smile is what you really want, then you can take advantage of our discreet range of braces in North London.
Getting dental braces might seem a scary or daunting process for some people, but in fact, braces are very helpful for your oral and overall health.
At Denchic Dental Spa, we offer a comprehensive range of cosmetic braces in North London, which are specifically designed to move your teeth into their correct position swiftly and discreetly.
Cosmetic braces have many aesthetic benefits, but they are also very beneficial for your health in ways you may have not imagined.
Prevent infection and oral disease
Crooked and cracked teeth are more prone to gum disease and tooth decay, because they tend to trap plaque and bacteria in small crevices created in-between them. Instead of spending a fortune on professional dental cleanings all the time, simply invest in braces in North London and enjoy the health benefits of a straight smile.
Improve your bite and release pressure from your jaw
Braces in North London will also help you achieve a better and more functional bite, especially if you have an overbite, an underbite, or a crossbite. Irregular bite patterns cause unnecessary stress on your jawbone and can lead to long-term medical problems such as migraines and jaw deterioration.
Enhance your digestive health
Have you noticed that it’s almost impossible to eat all foods with crooked or misaligned teeth? This is because your bite pattern is altered and chewing and biting become more difficult. Food that’s not properly chewed can affect your digestive system and may result in indigestion problems or bowel movement complications.
It’s all about confidence
Crooked, misaligned, overcrowded and gapped teeth are not attractive and can cause a serious blow to your confidence and self-esteem. Worrying about your smile should be the last of your concerns, therefore investing in braces in North London is the way to go.
Braces are adaptable
Apart from their other benefits, braces are also adaptable. Cosmetic braces in North London, in particular, are created to suit each patient’s dental problem and lifestyle by taking into consideration their needs and desires.

Which was your favourite fairy tale when you were a child? At Denchic Dental Spa, we like the ones where beauty that already exists is drawn out with a little magical help, like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella or even The Ugly Duckling. This is because we see this kind of fairy tale come true all the time. Everyone has the potential to enjoy a beautiful smile with a little help from equipment like braces in North London.
What’s magical about our methods?
Just because we’re all adults now, it doesn’t mean we can’t see a little magic in everyday processes. Grown-up magic can mean using tools created by experts to make changes in ways that are far less effort than they might have been in the past. This is how we view our braces in Clapham.
In place of the fairy godmother, we work with superstar providers of dental braces like Six Month Smiles and Invisalign. They have patient interests at the centre of their vision, and they have made plenty of dreams come true.
Once upon a time, you would have had no choice but to work with metal, traditional braces. These were so obtrusive that it is no wonder that many adults gave up on the vision of having a straight smile. Fortunately, modern methods are designed with aesthetics in mind so you can decide to get your teeth straightened without having to become an ugly sister (or brother!) in the meantime.
Step into the story
At Denchic Dental Spa, we like to help people find their happy ending with braces in North London. It all starts with an initial appointment to find out what’s possible, how long it will take and various other details about the treatment process.
Many of the best stories involve a quest of some kind. We want you to feel like you are setting out on an adventure to achieve a stunning smile when you begin your treatment with us. The road can last anything from a few months to a year or more, but we are here to support you throughout. Once you reach the end, you’ll find that the gift of a straight smile is worth its weight in gold.
If you had braces recently, then you may be wondering how to take good care of them following your dentist’s advice. Depending on the type of braces you are wearing you may need to adjust your oral hygiene routine to ensure that your teeth remain healthy and plaque-free throughout your teeth-straightening treatment.
At Denchic Dental Spa, you will find a good selection of cosmetic braces in North London – whether fixed or removable. If you want to learn more about each of them, simply arrange a consultation appointment with one of our skilled dentists – we are here to help you make the best decision possible.
Brush and floss your teeth daily
Regardless of the type of braces you are wearing, you should brush and floss your teeth daily. Invisalign wearers have an advantage over other patients because they do not need to change their oral hygiene routine. Invisalign aligners are invisible, therefore they can be taken out every time you have to brush and/or floss your teeth. Patients with fixed cosmetic braces in North London, on the other hand, such as Six Month Smiles, should be careful enough to remove all food remains from around their brackets. This can be achieved with the help of a soft-bristled toothbrush or special equipment (i.e. interdental brushes).
Show up at your dental appointments
Again, your choice of teeth-straightening treatment will largely determine the amount of time you will have to spend in the dentist’s chair. However, your dentist will want to monitor your progress every now and then and check if everything goes as planned. It is really important not to miss your regular dental appointments while wearing braces in North London.
Don’t neglect your oral care while wearing braces
Taking care of your braces in North London while undergoing treatment is really important to prevent complications. Even if you wear the most effective cosmetic braces available, if you don’t take good care of your teeth, chances are that your overall teeth-straightening treatment will be compromised. To learn more about braces and how to take good care of them, visit Denchic Dental Spa today.
If you’d like to straighten your teeth and improve your smile and quality of life, then you’d better join the thousands of people in the UK who have benefited from cosmetic dentistry. In the past, many adults were afraid to wear braces because they didn’t like the idea of metal brackets and wires against their teeth. Luckily, dental technology has evolved since then, and now adults can proudly show their teeth while undergoing treatment with discreet, cosmetic braces in North London.
Cosmetic braces at Denchic Dental Spa can address more teeth straightening problems than you may think. From crooked teeth to bite problems, discreet braces in North London are durable, versatile and reliable and can help with most types of mild-to-moderate teeth-straightening problems.
Below we will try to dispel common myths surrounding cosmetic braces in North London.
Braces are only for children
Braces are not only for children and it is never too late to improve your smile. If you feel that you are too old for braces in North London, your dentist will convince you otherwise, because metal braces are not your only option. Even if you had braces a child, chances are that teeth-straightening problems may return later in life and doing nothing for them can cause more problems in the long run. Modern braces allow you to straighten your teeth properly while looking great.
Braces take too long
It’s true that regular braces are time-consuming, but this is not the case with cosmetic braces. Some types of braces, such as Six Month Smiles and the Inman Aligner, can straighten your teeth in only a few weeks, provided that your dental problems are not serious enough.
Teeth-straightening treatment is painful
There is a difference between pain and discomfort. While you may feel uncomfortable while getting used to your cosmetic braces, you will hardly feel any pain. In general, some people are more sensitive than others but discomfort should go away within a few hours after your first fitting – if not, you should consult your dentist.
Braces are expensive
Contrary to popular belief, cosmetic braces are not more expensive than conventional braces. If anything, they could cost less.
It’s hard not to be self-conscious when you first get braces in North London. You are likely to be highly aware of the changes to your teeth even if everybody else isn’t. At Denchic Dental Spa, we like to offer dental treatments that have as little negative impact as possible. We want all the experiences you have after treatment with us to be positive and to help you get noticed for all the right reasons.
With some of our treatments, it’s easy to make this kind of promise. All the work is done in-house and it’s just the stunning results that get seen in the outside world. However, teeth straightening inevitably requires you to wear some sort of equipment for a while to get the smile you want. With our range of braces in North London you can choose equipment that has minimal impact on your look, so you can feel reassured about how you will feel while wearing them.
What are your options?
We have three different braces options for you to choose from when you have realignment with us. It may be that you need to choose a particular option for clinical reasons in order to get the result you want. Whichever one you work with, we think you will be pleasantly surprised at the low-impact experience.
- Six Month Smiles – this is perhaps the most visible of our options because you still have braces fixed to your teeth. However, the equipment is specially designed to blend in with your teeth in order to render it hard to see and certainly less visually impactful than traditional methods. As Six Month Smiles is fixed, it’s a system that is easy to use and convenient for people who want fast results;
- Invisalign – you have to be super-vigilant to spot someone who is wearing Invisalign. All you should see, when someone is using an Invisalign aligner, is the teeth underneath because they are totally see-through;
- Inman aligner – another removeable method that is sometimes appropriate for minor work. All you can see with this method is a thin band of silver running the length of the teeth. It’s hardly noticeable and, even though you can see it, it’s neat and unobtrusive.
At Denchic Dental Spa, we see an increasing number of adults investing in their oral health through braces in North London. There are many reasons why adults are in need of teeth-straightening treatment, even if they had braces when they were children. As we age, our teeth can get out of position because of genetics or other habits (i.e. clenching or biting your lips). It is also natural for teeth to move if there are gaps in our smile caused by missing teeth.
Luckily, teeth-straightening treatment with braces in North London can help. If you think you are eligible for adult braces, contact us and we will arrange a consultation appointment for you during which we will examine your teeth thoroughly.
Ideal candidates for adult braces in North London
Most adults with crooked, gapped and overcrowded teeth are good candidates for braces in North London. More specifically, if you have:
- Moderately misplaced and crowded teeth
- asymmetrical jawbones
- excessive spacing and gapping between your teeth
- or you need to realign your teeth before having a dental procedure
then you are a good candidate for adult braces in North London.
What are my options?
Some adults don’t end up having adult braces because the mere thought of metal brackets and wires is unpleasant. At Denchic Dental Spa, you can find fixed and removable adult braces such as Invisalign and Six Month Smiles. Each of these braces targets different types of problems but they have one thing in common – they are virtually invisible.
Invisalign aligners are very popular among adults. These transparent, custom-made, plastic aligners sit snugly on the teeth and gradually move them into their right position. Invisalign aligners are very comfortable to wear and can be removed for up to 4 hours every day to eat and brush your teeth. Invisalign aligners can correct most types of moderate teeth straightening problems and various bite issues.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles are tooth-coloured fixed braces that target your front teeth. Their most impressive feature is that they can straighten your teeth in 6 months, or less.
For some people, braces are associated with children and adolescence. Some of them used to wear braces younger and have no sympathy for metal brackets and wires. But we have news – conventional braces are not the only teeth-straightening technique available anymore. You can now straighten your teeth and improve your bite with the help of specially formulated adult braces in North London.
Adult braces at Denchic Dental Spa are discreet since they are usually made of tooth-coloured or transparent materials. Looking beyond aesthetics adult braces in North London have many important health benefits as well. Get them now and you will be investing in your future.
While it’s possible to have crooked teeth and high self-esteem at the same time, not all people are happy with their natural dentition. This is because your smile and the state of your teeth are directly related to how others perceive you. Straightening your teeth can help you rebalance your emotional wellbeing.
Long-term oral health
Getting braces in North London for cosmetic reasons is valid. However, your first concern when undergoing teeth straightening should be your oral health. If you never wore braces as a child you may struggle at first (even with adult braces), but soon the benefits will replace any potential downfalls. Letting your teeth-straightening problems go untreated is a slippery slope and can lead to even more serious problems in the future. Overcrowded, gapped and crooked teeth come with many risks; most of them, however, can be fixed with the righty type of braces.
Discover your options
There are many different options for adult braces in North London. At Denchic, you can choose from Invisalign, Six Month Smiles and the Inman Aligner. And you can take advantage of our 15% offer off clear braces plus complimentary teeth whitening and a free electric toothbrush. Clear braces in North London are almost impossible to be seen in your mouth but are very effective at aligning your teeth and correcting your bite problems.

If you grew up in the 80s you will no doubt have negative associations with braces. Many people were put off as teenagers, believing they would look like Metal Mickey and never be visible to the object of their desire. Finding yourself in your mid 40s, or to be honest, any age beyond your teenage years, you may well be regretting the decision to put it off. Yet, now you have bosses to impress, functions and parties to attend and dates to go on, so the idea of braces will still be off putting. However, in the 30 plus years since the 80s, braces have come along way. For people in North London, braces no longer have to be an eyesore.
Adult braces in North London
The braces available today have a range of benefits that were not available in the past. Some braces are almost invisible or at the very least more discreet. Some options are removeable, and others are incredibly quick at fixing smiles. Here is a roundup of the top brands of adult braces in North London.
Six Month Smiles
These are highly cost-effective braces that target your front teeth. They are the most alike to traditional braces, as they have brackets and wires fixed in place. The brackets are completely clear, and the wires are tooth-coloured, creating a discreet look. They adjust misaligned teeth in 4-9 months.
This efficient brace targets only your top and bottom front teeth. It’s perfect for protruding teeth and gently applies pressure using spring loaded aligner bars. The brace itself comprises of a single visible wire and a clear aligner. In addition, this clever brace can give you results in as little as 6 weeks.
This is great for overbites, underbites, crossbites and small misalignments. This is not truly a brace, it is more accurately a pair of clear plastic aligners. Due to the way Invisalign is 3D-printed to fit the contours of your mouth, it does not need any fitting by a dentist. It is transparent and can be removed on occasion. If in doubt, talk to us here at Denchic Dental Spa in North London. Braces could give your smile a new lease of life.
Have you ever wanted straighter teeth, so you can smile with confidence? If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, twisted or protruding teeth or have large gaps in your teeth, you may well have wanted dental treatment but put it off. Often this is due to the misconception that it’s too late or that it’s only a cosmetic issue. You may also have thought metal braces are going to really impinge on your image. In North London, braces come in a wide range of options, so get ready for all your misconceptions to be dispelled.
In North London braces at Denchic Dental Spa provide the chance to have straight teeth with minimal inconvenience. There are 2 forms of braces available, fixed and removable.In addition to this, most braces are now almost invisible or incredibly discreet. They come in clear or tooth-coloured varieties as well as braces that fit to the backs of your teeth, where they are hidden from view. Each brace has been created to adjust specific issues, meaning our dentists have a range of options that will straighten your teeth in as short a time as possible with minimal impact visually. A perfect example of this combination of technology and dental expertise providing bespoke braces is Invisalign.
How does Invisalign work?
Using 3D imaging we take a scan of your mouth. From here we can create an ‘end destination’ for the way you want your teeth to look. Your dentist will then plot incremental steps to your end smile,each step representing a bespoke aligner. This is sent away to the Invisalign labs in the USA to 3D print your clear aligners. All you need do is then follow the treatment plan, replacing each removable aligner every 7-10 days. These bespoke clear aligners are virtually invisible, extremely convenient since they are removable and require no additional dental intervention to prepare wearing the aligners.
This is just one example of the incredible innovation in braces in North London. To find out about your braces options book your consultation today as it’s never too late to smile with confidence again.
