Treatment: We discussed the options including clear aligners, but the amount of movement required made fixed brackets the option of choice for the best and most predictable outcome. So we used tooth-coloured fixed brackets, and E wore them for 6 months.

The results speak for themselves, and E is understandably thrilled with her new smile.

Cost:  € 2995 spread over 6 months, and this included upper and lower fixed and removable retainers and full mouth whitening.

Sometimes the only way to straighten teeth is to use braces (orthodontics).

But if the mis-alignment is small, we may be able to use cosmetic bonding to get an excellent result in just a single appointment, with none of the side-effects or inconvenience of braces – and at considerably reduced cost.

Ian came to us unsatisfied with his smile and knowing he had dental work outstanding.

We consulted with him and formulated a plan that suited him. Ian had some restorative work that needed to be completed first to ensure his teeth and gums were healthy and following this Ian had short term orthodontics and 3 anterior crowns with one veneer.

The whole process took 7 months to complete and Ian attended for his final review appointment this week.

The results speak for themselves!

What I like about this case is the effect the smile has on Ian’s face and confidence as a whole! Well worth the time and effort, well done Ian!

Patient: J, a lady in her late 20’s/early 30’s presented with what she described as a “snaggle” lower tooth.

JM pre ortho 3

 

Treatment: This case was more complex than normal, as some cross-bite correction was required to get her lower tooth into the correct position and bring her upper teeth outside her bite. Mild crowding of both upper and lower teeth was present also. We delivered a fantastic result for her with short term Orthodontics, and when we saw her wedding photos afterwards, she was sporting a beaming smile.
