Confidence is key in the modern world and with our incredible lingual braces, we can provide you with a stunning straight smile without impacting on your confidence or your looks during the treatment process. With lingual systems, the braces are completely invisible, so nobody will even know that you’re wearing braces at all.
What are lingual braces?
Lingual braces are fixed braces, which offer complete invisibility throughout the treatment process. These braces are attached to the back of the teeth, so they cannot be seen when you speak or smile.
STb Social 6 lingual braces are designed to correct issues with the front teeth, also known as the social 6. Treatment times are very short, the braces are invisible and they use the latest technology to minimise discomfort.
The advantages of STb Social 6 braces
STb Social 6 braces offer patients a quick, invisible solution to orthodontic uses that affect the social 6, the front teeth on the top and bottom arches. With this system, you’re guaranteed amazing results in a very short space of time and you can relax safe in the knowledge that nobody can even see your braces. Many patients come to us wishing they had straighter teeth but worrying about the impact braes would have on their looks and their professional image; with this system, there is no impact and patients have complete peace of mind.
The average treatment time is just 16-20 weeks and the braces are much smaller than traditional fixed braces, so you should find them comfortable.
If you have minor issues with your front teeth and you’re looking for a discreet, rapid solution, STb Social 6 could be the perfect treatment for you. Call us now to find out more!

We are pleased to offer our clients the most amazing veneer treatments in the heart of London. With our veneers, we can create dazzling smiles and ensure you feel and look great every time you show off your smile.
We offer Da Vinci porcelain veneers and Lumineers.
About Da Vinci veneers
If you’ve ever watched a television makeover show, which featured a dramatic smile transformation, it’s likely that you’ve come across Da Vinci veneers. These veneers set the gold standard in aesthetics and are frequently the choice of Hollywood stars. They are known for their incredible looks and they can transform even the most unattractive teeth into a bright, sparkling smile. Da Vinci veneers are made from polished porcelain; they are secured onto the natural teeth to create an amazing new smile.
Lumineers by Cerinate are made from a patented pressed ceramic material, which is incredibly strong, but also extremely aesthetically pleasing. Lumineers are wafer-thin and they require minimal preparation work, which protects the structure of the tooth and makes treatment less-invasive. Although Lumineers are very thin, they are also very strong and they are up to twice as durable as traditional porcelain veneers. They have a beautiful luminescent sheen and are an excellent choice for anyone who longs for a natural, radiant look.
Which treatment is best for me?
We will be able to ascertain which treatment suits you best when you have your consultation; we can go through the pros and cons of each treatment with you and chat to you about the kind of look you would like to create to help you choose the best option.

If you have a gummy smile or your smile lacks balance and it’s getting you down, we can help! Gum contouring is a simple, effective procedure, which can make an amazing difference to the aesthetic of the smile.
What is gum contouring?
Gum contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure, which is used to treat a gummy smile. A gummy smile occurs when there is more gum tissue visible when you smile than normal; this means that more of the tooth crown is covered and the teeth look smaller and shorter. A gummy smile is not a medical problem and it doesn’t cause any unpleasant symptoms, such as pain; however, it can make people feel very self-conscious about their looks, especially when their smile is on show.
With gum contouring, we are able to remove tiny pieces of the gum tissue to ensure that more of the tooth crown is visible; this makes the teeth look longer and larger, which increases the balance of the smile and makes it look more attractive.
What does the procedure involve?
We use innovative laser treatment to contour and shape the gums and the procedure is quick and completely painless. We use the laser to gently trim away the excess gum tissue and shape the gums, to produce a more attractive aesthetic. With laser treatment, we are able to shape the gums without any pain and with minimal risk of bleeding or infection; the results are incredible and you can feel much more confident when you smile in future.
If you’re unhappy with the look of your smile and you would like to find out about cosmetic treatments that could help, call us now and book a consultation!

We are delighted to offer our patients amazing same-day restorative treatment thanks to the incredibly innovative Cerec system. With Cerec, we are able to create and fit bespoke restorations to cater for all your needs in one single day.
What is Cerec?
Usually, if you need a crown, an inlay or onlay or some veneers, treatment takes place over 2 sessions and we send impressions of your teeth away to a dental laboratory. With Cerec, we are able to complete the entire restorative treatment process on-site and this enables us to offer same-day treatment. Cerec technology takes care of the design and manufacturing processes and we then fit your new restoration.
With Cerec, we take images of the teeth with a camera and these are converted into accurate 3D models; these designs are sent to the on-site milling machine and the custom-made restoration is ready seconds later. Once your new restoration is ready, we can fit it there and then, so there’s no need to worry about booking multiple appointments or getting time off work.
The benefits of Cerec
The most obvious benefit of Cerec is speed; a process, which often takes 2 weeks, now requires just one treatment session. This also increases convenience for patients, as they don’t need to schedule more than one appointment. The process is also cleaner and more accurate and patients don’t need to put up with putty moulds, which can be uncomfortable, especially for those with a sensitive gag reflex. As dentists, we also have more control of the design process and we can show patients how everything works to give the greater understanding of the procedure.
When can Cerec be used?
We are able to use Cerec to create bespoke veneers, inlays and onlays and crowns.

If you’re tired of wrinkles or you’re desperate to wave goodbye to facial lines for good this winter, we have the perfect solution. Our non-surgical facial treatments are designed to tackle the common signs of ageing to give you a fresher, brighter and younger complexion.
We offer Botox and dermal filler treatment to combat lines, wrinkles and folds and inject youthful beauty into your skin.
What is Botox?
Botox is a very popular non-invasive facial treatment, which is most commonly used to target wrinkles. Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which works to smooth lines and create a more youthful appearance by reducing muscle contraction in the facial muscles. It does this by blocking the action of nerve signals to the muscles. The procedure for Botox treatment is very simple and fast and most sessions are complete within 20 minutes. A very fine needle is used to inject Botox into different areas of the face (usually the forehead, around the eyes and the skin around the nose and mouth). The result of Botox treatment usually last between 3 and 6 months; it is possible to prolong the results by continuing treatment in the future.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are designed to add volume to the skin and they help to add firmness and bounce, which may have disappeared due to a loss of collagen, which occurs as part of the ageing process. We use Restylane, a filler treatment, which uses ingredients found naturally in the body, to plump up the skin and enhance the features. As well as tackling lines and wrinkles and adding volume to dull, sunken skin, we can also use Restylane to create fuller lips.
The procedure for filler treatment is very similar to that of Botox; a fine needle is used to inject the filler into the areas of the skin, which require some TLC and the results last for up to 9 months. There’s no pain involved and you can get back to whatever the rest of the day holds straight after your treatment session.

If you’re looking for an innovative way to straighten your teeth, look no further than the Inman Aligner. This incredible removable appliance takes a matter of weeks to produce stunning straight smiles.
What exactly is the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance, which uses gentle forces to align the teeth comfortably and quickly. The aligner is essentially made up of a coiled spring, which sits behind the front teeth and a metal bar, which runs across the front teeth; these parts generate forces, which push and pull the teeth, causing them to move in the desired direction.
This treatment is geared towards patients who only require a small amount of movement; it targets the front teeth and also provides a solution for patients who have experienced relapse following previous treatment.
Could the Inman Aligner be the right choice for me?
If you have minor issues that affect your front teeth, such as mild crowding or a small gap between your front teeth and you’re searching for a swift orthodontic solution, the Inman Aligner could be the ideal match for you. This treatment produces results in just 16 weeks and the metal bar is much more discreet than traditional fixed braces; the aligner also uses the latest technology to reduce friction, so you won’t feel any pain.
The Inman Aligner is also a really good choice for patients who prefer the flexibility of a removable brace; with this treatment, you can eat and clean your teeth without wearing your brace, which means that you don’t have to make any drastic changes to your diet or your daily oral hygiene regime.
