Are braces for me?

Let’s set the record straight. The world of dental braces has undergone a big change. Long gone are the days of fixed, unsightly metal braces and lengthy, uncomfortable treatments. Technology has enabled a revolution in the design and application of braces, widening the choices available as well as shortening treatment times. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, braces are what we know well. Come and join the dental revolution and say goodbye to old fashioned braces and hello to a brighter, healthier smile.

Braces in North LondonSix Months Smiles is here to help

Six Month Smiles is a popular choice for braces in North London. There is an abundance of benefits to Six Month Smiles, so it’s no wonder this has become one of our bestselling treatments. Initially, when our clients hear about the Six Month Smiles treatment they often presume it is similar to traditional metal braces.

Granted, there are aspects of the treatment that are similar, such as their transformative technique through the fitting of wires and brackets, but this is where the similarity ends.

Six Month Smiles focuses on your front teeth, where the cosmetic benefits are most obvious. This targeted approach decreases the length of treatment times and also means teeth seldom need to be extracted prior to treatment. This means that there are even fewer risks of causing damage to your teeth.

Another benefit is the efficiency of Six Month Smiles braces in North London. The clue is in the name, as they do usually take, on average just 6 months. In some cases, they may take up to 9 months, but this is still a quick and efficient time frame compared to traditional braces.

Six Month Smiles are also an unobtrusive answer to braces in North London. The special nickel titanium wires are tooth-coloured and so more easily blend into the background of your teeth.

Can adults have them?

There is a preconception attached to braces that only teens can have them. Denchic Dental Spa can reveal that this is not the case. Six Month Smiles can fit straight into your life as a busy adult, whether you’re a full-time parent, or a dedicated professional.

Let us set things straight

If you are one of the people in the UK that have less than straight teeth, you may have wondered how a straight smile would look. You may have crooked or misaligned teeth, large gaps, twisted or protruding teeth. Perhaps you an overbite, underbite or a crossbite.

Teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean and are at risk of being lost because of tooth decay or other dental diseases. It is now easier than you think to straighten out that smile, with braces in North London at Denchic Dental Spa.

Braces in North LondonOur dentists will diagnose, treat and prevent irregularities of the teeth with the use of cosmetic braces. Braces are fixed or removable dental appliances. These devices can be used to straighten teeth, correct an irregular bite, close unsightly gaps and bring teeth into proper alignment.

We are also happy to give our patients an Easter offer. This includes 15% off your braces in North London, complimentary teeth whitening and even a free electric toothbrush!

Invisalign cosmetic braces

One of our most popular procedures for braces in North London is Invisalign. It is an innovative new technique designed to take away the pain or discomfort of traditional metal braces. It is a system designed to realign teeth to give you that A-List celebrity smile you have been desiring.

Our braces are completely clear so no-one even needs to know you are wearing them. Imagine a life free of unappealing braces. Denchic Dental Spa has taken steps to provide Invisalign braces at an affordable price. We even offer 0% interest free credit options, with payments spread equally over 12 months.

How do they work?

Invisalign braces in North London work using clear aligners. These aligners gradually reposition your teeth over a period of between 6 to 18 months.

They are also removable so there is no need to worry about having them in for your big night out, as they can be removed in seconds. This also makes them currently the most hygienic braces available. Removing them when you eat means you won’t need to deal with food getting stuck between your teeth and your braces. Invisalign therefore gives you greater freedom to get on with your day as usual.

At Denchic Dental Spa we love that spring feeling of renewed life and energy and to celebrate we are offering a 15% discount on clear braces in North London.

Clear braces are different from the more traditional bracket and wire braces that are fixed to your teeth. The latter use the pulling action of wires through the brackets to move the teeth.

At Denchic in North London, braces use a different mechanism that pushes teeth into position. These braces are made of rigid clear acrylic and instead of brackets and wires, they look more like mouth guards.

Braces in North LondonHow does it work?

When you come for a consultation, we will take detailed impressions of your teeth as they are now. Then, using computer programming, we’ll work out the trajectory your teeth need to follow in order for them to reach alignment.

All this information is then sent off to a laboratory that makes these clear braces. At the lab, they make a series of braces, each one of which will gently push your teeth along their path to straightness. Depending on your individual case, you will need to wear between 12 to 48 of these clear braces to get the beautiful straight teeth you desire. Each one takes about 2 weeks do its work, and then it’s on to the next one.

The great thing about clear braces is that they are almost invisible. The clear acrylic is only about 0.3millimetres thick and the braces fit so snugly over your teeth that someone would have to get very close to spot them. They won’t impair your speech either.

Because the braces are not fixed to your teeth, you can take them out to eat your meals and to brush your teeth. This means you avoid the hassle that some people have with fixed braces of getting food stuck in between your braces and your teeth.

Clear braces require discipline however. You must wear them for at least 22 hours a day if they are to move your teeth on schedule.

Teeth whitening in North London explained

Teeth whitening in North London with Denchic Dental Spa is a treatment that many patients are now choosing to enhance their look. We want to make it easy for you to choose this relatively simple cosmetic dentistry treatment.

Making teeth whitening a part of your beauty treatment regime means you are paying attention to your smile which forms the centre of your face. A bright smile radiates self-assurance and happiness.

teeth-whitening-north-londonHow does it work?

Teeth whitening bleaches the teeth by using a special gel. If you choose in-clinic teeth whitening in North London with us, you have the gel applied and a special light activates the whitening ingredient.

If you decide to opt for at-home whitening, we supply you with custom-made trays. These are formed using impressions of your teeth to ensure they fit snugly and that the product you use will not leak. You wear them for a few hours each day or overnight for around two weeks to see great results.

Who is suitable?

Almost everyone is suitable for teeth whitening as long as they have healthy, clean teeth. If you need a visit to the hygienist and a polish, it is advisable to have this done prior to whitening so that the gel can work directly on the surface of your teeth. Any cavities need to be seen to as well, so that the gel cannot get into any holes.

There are some marks that do not respond well to teeth whitening. These are called intrinsic stains that are built into the teeth. One of our team will let you know if this is your situation, and provide possible alternatives to standard teeth whitening for improving your smile.

It is not advisable to have teeth whitening if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. The procedure is safe but there are lots of changes going on in the body during these time periods and some of those affect the teeth. On balance, it is better to wait before you have this treatment under these circumstances.

For similar reasons, teeth whitening is not advised for young people under the age of 18. The teeth are still forming and changing, so it is best to let them finish doing that before applying any kind of bleaching agent.

teeth-whitening-in-north-londonStained and discoloured teeth are a very common occurrence and affect virtually anyone. Although ageing and genetics determine changes in the colour of our teeth, yellowing can also occur because of certain types of food and drinks which contain chemicals that naturally stain the teeth (i.e. tea and coffee, red wine, blueberries, tomato sauce etc). Brushing your teeth immediately after consuming them can help eliminate some of the effects, but pigmentation can still build up over time. Moreover, some medications can also affect the colouring of your teeth, as well as smoking.

At Denchic, North London, teeth whitening is something we offer to our patients on a regular basis so we know how positive it can be for people. We are skilled at guiding you through the process and providing the right advice for you, whatever your circumstances.

teeth-whitening-in-north-londonThe patient experience

The first thing your dentist will do when you want to opt for teeth whitening in North London is check your teeth and gums. They are looking to see that they are in a good state of health. If you need a little work, a polish or have any potential issues then it is best to get these seen to first.

Once you are ready to go, you have a number of options to choose from. We offer patients teeth whitening in North London at our clinic or you can choose to treat yourself at home. In either case, we provide all the equipment you need and give you plenty of details about what will happen and what to expect.

Impact on your life

Having any kind of cosmetic treatment is designed to lift your look and boost your confidence. When you have your teeth whitened, you can smile with renewed self-assurance. This is because we associate white teeth with youth, health and vitality.

After your treatment, you are more likely to spend time looking after your smile so it could have a positive impact on your dental health as well.

Effort required

One of the reasons why so many patients choose teeth whitening is that there is very little effort involved in treatment. The process is easy. If you experience any side effects at all, it is likely to be a slight increase in sensitivity that usually goes away by itself once you stop treatment. It is also on the lower end of the scale when it comes to costs that are usually incurred when you have a cosmetic treatment. This makes it accessible for more people.

Invisalign, Inman Aligner and Six Month Smiles

There are so many different ways to straighten your teeth that the number of options can be confusing. At Denchic Dental Spa, North London, braces are one of the treatments we can help you sort through until you feel comfortable with the level of knowledge you have about each method. This will mean you are able to make an informed decision about your own treatment. Some are only suitable for certain issues and we can advise you on this.

braces-in-north-londonInvisalign

Invisalign is one of the great methods that we work with at our clinic in North London. Braces have come a long way and Invisalign are a perfect example of this. This method works with a set of removable aligners that come in a series. You work through the set at home, changing them as often as advised by one of our dentists. Invisalign are completely see-through, so they appear to be invisible when you are wearing them. You take your aligner out to eat and drink anything other than water. Cleaning your teeth before you put it back in prevents build-up of food or deposits on your teeth and the discoloration of your aligner.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are fixed braces. In North London, at Denchic Dental Spa, we offer them to patients who want to work on the cosmetic appearance of their smile. They focus on the most visible teeth and, therefore, they only take a short while to get the results you want when compared to traditional braces. This method requires brackets and wires to be added to your teeth. These are clear and tooth-coloured for maximum discretion.

Inman Aligner

Perhaps our swiftest method for teeth realignment is the Inman Aligner with average treatment times in the six to 18 weeks range. This aligner is removable, although you will need to wear it for at least 20 hours per day.

You get a single aligner with this method, which uses a spring-based pressure system on the front and back of your teeth to encourage them to move. Many patients find that this method temporarily affects their speech but, as you get used to the presence of the aligner, this problem quickly corrects itself.

Teeth straightening with Invisalign braces in North London

When some people hear the phrase ‘teeth straightening’, they picture teeth covered in metal. Teeth straightening technology has undergone significant advances over the last decade, and it is now possible to straighten your teeth without compromising on aesthetics.

braces-in-north-londonWhen it comes to discreet teeth straightening, Invisalign is one of the most well-known treatments, used by more than 4 million people worldwide. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London,we believe that improving your smile doesn’t have to be complicated. This is why we recommend Invisalign clear braces for an improved look with minimum effect on your daily life.

How does it work?

Teeth straightening with Invisalign is made possible by a series of transparent, removable, plastic aligners which are custom-made for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have reached their proper position prescribed by your dentist. You can remove the aligners to eat and brush your teeth, but you have to commit to wearing them for at least 22 hours per day for optimal results.

During your first appointments, you will be able to go through a virtual personalised treatment plan generated by 3D technology, predicting the movements of your teeth over the course of the treatment. This 3D image will be the basis for the creation of your tailor-made aligners.

Am I a suitable candidate?

Invisalign clear braces in North London can fix widely spaced or overcrowded teeth, overbites and underbites. Our dentists will assess your individual needs and develop the right treatment plan for you.

However, Invisalign is not suitable for all people and all cases. If your teeth are severely crooked or you have jaw alignment issues, then it may not work for you. Likewise, children and some teenagers cannot use Invisalign because their adult teeth have not fully developed.

If you are looking for Invisalign clear braces in North London, you want the right dentists with the right experience. For a smile that will transform your appearance and boost your self-confidence, Invisalign at Denchic Dental Spa is the clear choice.

Teeth whitening – the most popular cosmetic dental treatment

Getting a brighter, whiter smile is something most patients can do with teeth whitening in North London at Denchic Dental Spa.

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment for many reasons that we can explore both here and with you when you come to our clinic in North London. Teeth whitening has been around for a long time. The Romans used to rinse their mouths with urine to enjoy the restorative effects of the urea. Fortunately, things have come a long way since then and we can offer you much more palatable options.

teeth-whitening-in-north-londonSimple and non-invasive

Teeth whitening is simple when compared with many other dental treatments. You have gel applied to your teeth in some way and then go ahead and wait for it to work. There are additional details we can fill you in on but these do not change the essence of the treatment. It does not require you to have any drilling, needles or any of the usual things that people associate with unpleasantness at the dentist.

You do need to have clean, healthy teeth before you begin. Even if you only need a simple polish or filling, it is best to get this sorted out at a regular check-up or appointment with your hygienist before you get going.

Plenty of choices

Your treatment can be done either at home or at our clinic in North London. Teeth whitening is achieved using a bleach that breaks down the stains on your teeth without having a significant impact on them. Some people can experience sensitivity during or after the process, but this can be mitigated by reducing the frequency of treatments or with special, additional products that correct the issue.

Big impact on your teeth and your life

The other great plus of whitening is how much of an impact you get for your efforts. This is why so many people are choosing it as their favourite treatment. Many patients can get lighter than their natural shade and still have teeth that look integrated into their face. Your teeth appear cleaner, healthier and younger. Also, because you’re more likely to be smiling more, you’ll be happier too!

Making an appointment with us to start the process is easy – just get in touch via our website or on the phone.
