Teeth straightening process

To begin the process of straightening your teeth we’ll arrange an initial assessment where you’ll be advised of the most appropriate option for you and the costs of treatment.

The process from thereon depends on the option selected, however during your first appointment you may be sized for your teeth straightening appliance.

Your progress will be carefully monitored and your device adjusted as required during a number of appointments over the course of the treatment. When your teeth are at the desired position your brace will be removed, leaving you with a fantastic new smile!

Finally, you’ll be offered aftercare, including retainers to help ensure the longevity of your results.
