Cosmetic braces and aligners: your journey to straighter teeth starts here

North Londondental spa Denchic uses cosmetic braces and aligners to subtly straighten adult teeth. We are proud to offer these treatments because we recognise the need for and the benefits of teeth straightening treatment at any age, but also understand the concerns the thought of wearing traditional metal appliances throw up for many people.

cosmetic-bracesWhy teeth straightening benefits clients of all ages

A large number of UK adults are so self-conscious about their smile that they rarely show it off in public. One of the biggest concerns reported is that they wish for straighter teeth – having either missed out on having orthodontic treatment as a teenager, or having experienced adult relapse – teeth moving back to their original position.

At our North Londondental spa we are always keen to extol the virtues of teeth straightening treatment at any age. As well as boosting your self-confidence, straightening your teeth makes them easier to keep clean. With fewer gaps between the teeth where food particles can get trapped, your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease will be reduced – so long as you have an excellent home care routine and make regular visits to the hygienist and dentist, of course.

Teeth whitening: a fast way to a beautiful smile

Teeth whitening from a cosmetic dentist is an excellent, quick, and safe way to boost the appearance of your smile. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we have successfully helped many clients to improve their smile and with it their self-confidence with the help of professional whitening treatment.

teeth-whiteningAt North London spa Denchic we understand the desire for whiter teeth. Our teeth are easily stained by food and drink, lifestyle factors such as smoking, even by some medicines and medicated mouthwashes.

When it is carried out by a dentist, teeth whitening is a highly-effective, fast and efficient way to remove common stains, even those that are below the surface.

Why you need to consult a dentist

There are many products available online or on the general market that claim to whiten teeth, but we would advise you to avoid these. The products used by a dentist are extensively tested not just for efficiency, but also for reliability, safety, and gentleness on the teeth. Whitening products from other sources are highly unlikely to be tested to such a degree, and can sometimes contain dangerous levels of hydrogen peroxide (up to 300 times the legal limit in the worst cases) which, according to the Local Government Association, is the same as blushing your teeth with bleach.

Teeth whitening in North London

The products used at Denchic are safe, reliable, and gentle. They will be delivered by a qualified cosmetic dentist, who will assess your oral health prior to starting treatment, because whitening treatment shoulfd only be carried out on healthy teeth.

We offer three teeth whitening options at our North London spa:

Home whitening – this lasts about two weeks and uses custom-made whitening trays.

Zoom power whitening – this involves an hour-long session in the spa.

Enlighten combination whitening – this combines home whitening with a final in-clinic session.

Do I need to wear metal braces if I want straighter teeth?

Metal braces are not the only option if you want to straighten your teeth. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London we offer a number of more discreet orthodontic treatment options, designed to give you the straighter smile you’ve always wanted with minimal impact on your day-to-day life.

metal-bracesWhy you should straighten your teeth

An increasing number of adults are contacting our North Londondental spa with a view to straightening their teeth. As well as the obvious aesthetic benefits this can have, and the accompanying boost to your confidence, straighter teeth are also generally healthier teeth, because they are easier to clean, and because the forces of biting and chewing are more evenly distributed in your mouth.

What is discreet orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the specialism that deals with the alignment of teeth, and with the bite (the way your jaws meet together). Discreet orthodontics uses either fixed appliances – braces – or removable one – aligners – to move your teeth into a better position, eschewing the need for obvious metal braces.

There have been rapid advances in discreet orthodontic treatment in recent years. At our North London clinic we offer both discreet braces and clear aligners. The best option will depend on your clinical need and your individual preferences, and will be discussed by your dentist when you come into our spa for a consultation.

Your North London treatment options

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces designed to work quickly and subtly. They focus on your front teeth and comprise tooth-coloured and clear components, meaning that they blend in with the natural shade of your teeth.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a system of clear, removable aligners that guide your teeth into a new position. The aligners are near-invisible to the untrained eye.

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a single, removable, clear aligner specifically designed to correct crooked or protruding front teeth.

Why treatment with braces needn’t mean a mouth full of metal

Many people associate the word “braces” with traditional metal appliances used by children and teenagers to straighten their teeth. Whilst these are effective, it’s not hard to see why adults don’t want to undergo such treatment. That’s why at North London dental spa Denchic, we are proud to offer some far more subtle options. . .

cosmetic-bracesBraces or aligners?

At our North London dental spa we offer discreet orthodontic treatment with both braces – which are fixed in place – and aligners, which are removable. The best treatment option in your case will depend on your individual needs, and will be discussed by your dentist when you come in for your initial consultation.

Aligners fit over your teeth and gently guide them into a new position, with the added benefit of being removable, so you can take them out to clean, to eat, and to brush your teeth. They are made from clear plastic, meaning they are invisible to the untrained eye, and will have minimal impact on your daily routine.

For clients who would benefit from treatment with cosmetic braces, we offer Six Month Smiles treatment at our North London practice. These fixed appliances have – as the name indicates – an average treatment time of just six months, and comprise tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires and clear ceramic brackets, so they are far less obvious than their metal counterparts.

Six Month Smiles braces work so quickly because they focus on the front six to eight teeth – those that are visible in your smile line. They are also more comfortable than traditional orthodontic appliances because of the lower forces used and the shorter treatment time.

Whilst they are considered a cosmetic treatment, at our North London clinic we are also keen to emphasise the health benefits of orthodontic treatment, because straighter teeth are healthier teeth, with fewer gaps in which plaque bacteria can build up.

Modern braces don’t have to mean a mouth full of metal

Braces have been used for many years to straighten teeth, but for many adults the thought of wearing an obvious metal device for upwards of 24 months is a barrier to treatment. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we believe that everybody deserves a smile to be proud of, which is why we are proud to offer a number of more discreet ways to straighten teeth.

Braces or aligners?

bracesDiscreet orthodontics uses either fixed appliances – braces – or removable aligners to move your teeth into a new position, improving their alignment and correcting issues such as crowding or uneven spacing.

When you come into our North London dental spa for an orthodontic consultation, your dentist will examine your smile and will talk through the relevant treatment options, discussing the pros and cons of each device so that you can be confident you are making an informed choice about treatment.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is one of the most popular cosmetic orthodontic treatments at our North London spa. This is a modern brace system that adapts the mechanics of traditional braces for the 21st Century.

Comprising tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets, Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces with – as the name suggests – an average treatment time of just six months. Some people see results in as short a time as four months. Your dentist will tell you your predicted length of treatment at your initial consultation.

These braces work so quickly because they focus on the front teeth – those that show when you smile. They are not designed for major orthodontic correction, but we have other options at our North London clinic should you require more extensive treatment.

Clear aligners

We also offer treatment with Invisalign and the Inman Aligner. These clear devices fit over your teeth to guide them into a new position, and are removable.

Teeth whitening: the perfect boost to your smile

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments available. At Denchic North London dental spa we offer several options for clients who would like whiter teeth, and as well as being a great standalone treatment we believe that whitening is an excellent addition to other treatments such as cosmetic orthodontics, leaving you with a smile you can’t wait to show off.

teeth-whiteningWe offer free teeth whitening consultations at our North London clinic, during which one of our cosmetic team will examine your teeth and gums to ensure you are in full dental health, and will talk you through all the treatment options so you can choose the best one to fit your needs.

As with all cosmetic procedures, teeth whitening should only be carried out on a healthy mouth, to reduce the chances of side-effects such as sensitivity. Should your dentist spot any health issues, these will be treated first – so do remember to factor this into your plans if you want to whiten your teeth for a special occasion.

Teeth whitening is one of the fastest ways a dentist can make over your smile. Depending on which option you pick, treatment time ranges from a single, hour-long session with a cosmetic dentist here at our North London clinic to a maximum of four weeks at home. Factors that influence treatment time include the type and amount of staining, and your personal preferences.

Here are the three options Denchic offer for teeth whitening in North London:

Home whitening

Using custom-made lightweight plastic mouth trays and whitening gel, you carry out this treatment yourself at home (under your dentist’s direction). Results will be seen in between two and four weeks.

Phillips Zoom Whitening

Carried out in our North London clinic by your dentist, this option takes one or two hours.

Enlighten Evolution Whitening

This combination treatment is fast and promises near zero sensitivity.

Cosmetic braces and aligners: the subtler way to a gorgeous smile

Braces were once considered exclusively for children and teenagers. However, at our Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we have seen an increasing demand for adult orthodontic treatment. We understand that the thought of wearing standard metal braces may not be appealing to many adults, which is why we have invested in discreet orthodontics and now offer several ways to straighten your teeth without everybody knowing you are having treatment.

Straight teeth without a glint of metal

cosmetic bracesThere are two options available at our North London dental practice for adults who want straighter teeth: tooth-coloured braces and clear aligners. The best option for your case will depend on a number of factors, including the type and amount of correction needed, how fast you want treatment to be, and your personal preference.

When you come into our North London practice for an orthodontic consultation, your dentist will examine the current position of your teeth and will assess how much correction is required. They will then run you through your treatment options, so that you can make an educated choice going forward.

Treatment options

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces designed to work quickly by focussing on your front teeth – those visible when you smile. They comprise tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets, meaning that they will blend in with the natural colour of your teeth and not be glaringly obvious.

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is an all-in-one clear aligner that is useful in cases of adult relapse, and typically takes between six and 16 weeks to work. You are able to take your aligner out for short periods, to clean and to brush your teeth, and to eat.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that fit over your teeth and gently guide them into a new position. Again, these are removable for short periods, so will have minimal impact on your lifestyle.

Teeth whitening: options for brighter, whiter teeth

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatment requests from a cosmetic dentist. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London we offer three options for patients interested in whitening treatment – home whitening, power whitening here in the practice, or a combination of both.

Why you need teeth whitening treatment

denchic-teeth-whiteningThink about what your teeth go through in an average day and it’s no surprise that they get stained. Drinks including tea, coffee, and red wine can all leave stains on the teeth, as can habits such as smoking, some medicines and medical conditions. Teeth can also become discoloured as part of the natural ageing process.

Teeth whitening treatment, when carried out by a cosmetic dentist or a hygienist on a dentist’s prescription, is a safe and predictable way to remove common stains.

How it works

Teeth whitening involves the use of special dental bleaching gel to lighten the colour of the teeth, getting rid of everyday stains and leaving your teeth several shades brighter. Depending on which option you choose, you can have a guaranteed B1 shade of whiteness – which is the brightest shade available in the UK.

This guaranteed B1 shade is only available with the Enlighten Evolution teeth whitening system. Enlighten Evolution also offers close to zero sensitivity, which can be a temporary side effect of some other whitening systems. This system involves a two-step process, with the first part taking place at home, followed by a session here in our North London spa.

We also offer Zoom power whitening, which takes place exclusively here in our North London practice. Your dentist puts whitening gel on your teeth and uses a special light to activate it. This option typically lasts just one hour.

The third option is home teeth whitening, which involves using custom-made whitening trays and gel at home. You place a small amount of gel in the trays and wear them overnight for approximately two weeks.

Do I need braces to straighten my teeth?

Braces are an excellent way to straighten your teeth, but for many adults the thought of a mouth full of metal is off-putting. Fortunately, Denchic Dental Spa in North London offers some great alternative options – ways that you can straighten your teeth without the whole world needing to know about it.

denchicDiscreet orthodontics has seen huge expansion in recent years, with many devices – both braces and aligners – being used by dentists and orthodontists to straighten teeth and correct alignment issues without having to wear standard metal appliances.

If you are interested in discreet orthodontic treatment, why not book a consultation with one of the skilled team here at our North London practice? Your dentist will carefully examine your teeth and your bite and will then run through the relevant treatment options, depending on your clinical needs, your personal preferences and your lifestyle.

The discreet orthodontic options available at our North London dental practice include:

Six Month Smiles

These cosmetic braces are a thoroughly modern method of correcting aesthetic alignment problems. Based on traditional brace principles, Six Month Smiles have an average treatment time of just six months, because they focus on the front six to eight teeth – those on display when you smile.

These braces are made from tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets, so blend in with the natural shade of your teeth.

Inman Aligner

This single clear aligner is an alternative to braces, and can be used to correct alignment issues with the top and bottom front teeth. The Inman Aligner has a fast treatment time – between six and 16 weeks – and is removable, so you can take it out for short periods, helping to maintain good dental hygiene during treatment.

Invisalign

Invisalign comprises a series of removable, clear aligners, which fit comfortably over your teeth and guide them into a new position. Your aligners will not be obvious in everyday life, and they can correct a range of orthodontic concerns.

Teeth whitening: the perfect way to boost your smile

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatment options in cosmetic dentistry – and it’s easy to see why. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we have helped many patients regain confidence in their smiles – and with it boost their self-esteem – with the help of whitening treatment. Read on to discover how you can join them. . .

Why teeth get stained

teeth whiteningThink of what your teeth go through in an average day and it’s not difficult to see why they can become stained. Dietary factors play a major part, with drinks including tea, coffee, red wine and cola being particular culprits, as do habits such as smoking. Some medicines and medicated mouthwashes can cause temporary staining of the teeth as a side-effect, and some medical conditions also result in tooth staining. Many people also find that as they get older, their teeth loose some of their natural bright white lustre. Teeth whitening treatment from a dentist is an excellent way to get that brightness back.

How treatment works

We offer three options for patients interested in teeth whitening at our North London practice: home whitening, power whitening here in the dental spa, and a combination of both. When you come into the practice for a consultation, your dentist will talk you through the options so that you can decide which will work best for you.

Whichever you choose, the basics are the same; teeth whitening involves the use of special dental bleaching gel to gently remove everyday stains from your teeth. When carried out by a dentist, or a hygienist on a dentist’s prescription, this is a safe and effective method of brightening up your smile.

Home whitening involves placing a small amount of gel in custom-made tooth trays and wearing them overnight for about two weeks. Power whitening takes place here in the comfort of our North London practice, and takes just one hour.
