Define Clinic

Providing an all encompassing face and smile treatment service for our patients

Cosmetic or Invisible Braces

  • Prices start from £2500.

At Define Clinic, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry and orthodontic treatments designed to make the most of your natural smile and correcting concerns you may have with the alignment of your teeth, while never sacrificing the comfort and ease of our patients. For many, when they think of braces, they think of the conventional metal style that are highly visible, which may deter them from seeking treatment. Dr Mark Hughes and our expert dental team are pleased to offer “invisible” braces for cosmetic purposes, offering an almost undetectable method of straightening teeth over time.

The type of braces required to achieve your desired result will vary depending on each individual patient, and we are pleased to offer a variety of different braces to treat a wide range of conditions. Some may be removable, reducing the hassle of maintaining traditional metal braces, such as restricting diets. At Define Clinic, we can utilise cosmetic braces to address dental issues caused by crowding and spacing concerns, malocclusion, underbites, overbites, and more. Often, we use braces in conjunction with other treatments, including a Smile Makeover or Porcelain Veneers as a part of a comprehensive treatment plan, achieving the most flawless, natural results and reducing unnecessary cosmetic procedures.

Invisible braces can be used to treat crooked teeth, protruding teeth, deep bites, or gaps between the teeth. At Define Clinic, we are proud to provide patients with the latest, most innovative dental technology, giving them more options than ever when it comes to teeth straightening. Whilst all designed to provide maximum comfort, at the same time as reducing potential obstructions.

For Invisalign ™ treatments Dr Hughes is extremely experience and is an international speaker and key opinion leader for Align Technology. He and his cosmetic dentists will work with you during your in-depth consultation to help select the best treatments for your unique needs and lifestyle.

Frequently asked questions

Invisalign® and Invisalign® Teen are just two of many options we offer, and have been hailed as a breakthrough when it comes to teeth straightening treatments. Invisalign® uses removable, transparent aligners to gradually guide teeth into the optimal positions. Several sets of aligners are used, and they are custom-designed to fit your unique dental imprints, being replaced every two weeks. By choosing a skilled and experience cosmetic dentist such as Dr Hughes, Invisalign® can be just as effective in achieving the desired results as traditional braces. For more challenging situations we also offer orthodontic specialists who can provide you with Incognito™ Hidden Braces, which braces behind the teeth for maximum discretion in treating a spectrum of orthodontic issues, including more complex cases. Incognito™ Hidden Braces are proven to produce visible results in a shorter treatment time than traditional brace methods. We also offer Damon™ Braces, which applies frictionless force to move the teeth. This is achieved through self-ligating brackets, smaller in size than those used in traditional braces and with a tooth-coloured option for extra discretion. Damon™ brackets allow for an efficient, comfortable experience without the need for metal or elastic ties or tightening. Also available are short-term orthodontic braces for fast, mild corrections to the front teeth.
Every patient’s desired tooth position will be different, and determining your cosmetic goals in relation to your current smile is necessary to settling on the right treatment for you. During your consultation, one of our experts will perform a comprehensive examination of your current teeth positioning, allowing them to take into account any dental concerns whilst discerning the right treatment for you. Using digital technology, we will provide you with a visual of how you can expect results to appear before treatment starts, giving you time to make amends prior to undergoing any dental work. For more complex corrections, fixed brace options, such as, Damon™ and Incognito™ braces are often recommended.
The visibility of your braces will be entirely dependant on the type of treatment you opt for. Whilst Incognito™ and Invisalign® braces are virtually invisible, allowing patients an almost undetectable method of tooth straightening, Damon™ braces are visible, though the tooth coloured option provides some camouflage.
Invisalign® braces are removable, allowing patients to easily and thoroughly brush and floss the aligners. However, Damon™ and Incognito™ braces can be tricky to clean, and regular hygienist appointments are recommended. This is particularly important with Incognito™ braces, as they are positioned behind the teeth and therefore can be difficult to reach and see.
Patients may experience some sensitivity or mild discomfort as the teeth are guided into the optimal position, and may take some time to adjust to Damon™ braces. However, Incognito™ and Invisalign® braces are custom fitted to your mouth for maximum overall comfort.
The length of treatment will depend entirely on what dental concerns are being corrected, but both Incognito™ and Damon™ braces are known to produce effective results quickly. Invisalign®, however, takes longer to achieve the desired results than fixed brace treatments.
