Orthodontics in Hampstead, London

At Heath Street Dental, we have developed a high class orthodontics service to provide you with a beautiful smile.

We offer orthodontics for both adults and children, to align the teeth comfortably and aesthetically.

Our commitment is to meet the individual needs of our patients by providing the highest quality care, ensuring maximum satisfaction. We have a wide range of options in orthodontics to suit your requirements. We also offer interest free, 0% finance payment plans to help make your treatment affordable.

A straighter smile can make the world of difference to your face. It can also improve the health of your teeth and gums. Crooked teeth are harder to keep clean and can therefore contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.

An early orthodontic assessment is the best way to ensure that your children have a healthy, straight smile later in life. Our specialists recommend that the initial consultation should occur by age 7. However, you should have your child’s teeth evaluated sooner if there are any signs of orthodontic problems.

Orthodontics can make a huge difference to patients of all ages. Orthodontics is now extremely popular for adults too. This has been driven by advances in brace technology to allow virtually invisible options for orthodontics.

At Heath Street Dental, we provide a range of orthodontic options including Invisalign, lingual, ceramic and metal braces.

With so much choice, it’s often hard to decide between brace options. Here’s a handy table to show you the differences:

Metal Braces

Metal braces are strong, fixed appliances used in orthodontic treatment. These traditional fixed metal braces remain the type of treatment most commonly fitted by orthodontists in the UK, particularly for children. They consist of very small metal brackets attached to a wire that are placed on the front of your teeth. They are popular with teenagers as they can be brightened up with different colours to make the smile unique.

Ceramic (clear) Braces

Ceramic braces consist of very small tooth coloured brackets attached to a wire that are placed on the front of your teeth. Similarly to traditional braces, ceramic braces use constant as well as gentle pressure, which over time, move your teeth into their proper positions. Ceramic braces are much less visible than metal braces. The tooth coloured brackets and tooth coloured wires make the braces barely noticeable so you can smile with confidence. As a credible cosmetic orthodontic option, ceramic braces are often very popular with adults (such as Tom Cruise!).

Lingual (invisible) Braces

Lingual braces are a revolutionary system that offer an almost invisible way to straighten the teeth. Lingual braces consist of very small metal brackets attached to a wire that are placed behind the teeth, thus making them virtually undetectable. They use constant, gentle pressure, which over time, move teeth into their proper positions.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign straightens your teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. The aligners work by placing gentle, sustained pressure on specific teeth, moving them slowly into their new position. Invisalign is considered to have revolutionised orthodontic treatment and is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional braces.
