Discreet orthodontics: straightening your teeth in secret

Modern orthodontics need not involve metal braces. In fact, some of the orthodontic treatments available from Harley Street Dental Clinic don’t involve a fixed brace at all. If you’ve always wanted to improve the alignment of your teeth, but have been scared off by the thought of metal braces, why not join us at our Harley Street clinic for an orthodontics consultation?

teeth-straighteningAt Harley Street Dental Clinic our orthodontics consultations cost £200, which will be taken off the price of any future orthodontic treatment plan. Thanks to the unique collection of highly skilled dental professionals in our practice, we can treat anything from simple to complex cases.

Orthodontics isn’t all about how your smile looks. Even if that’s the principal reason you’ve decided to straighten your teeth, our Harley Street team are always keen to point out that you will enjoy additional health benefits, too.

In the simplest of terms, straighter teeth are easier to keep clean, which can cut down your risk of both tooth decay and gum disease, and all the complications they can bring.

Harley Street orthodontics: your options

When you come into Harley Street Dental Clinic for your consultation, you will be seen by an experienced orthodontist, who will conduct a thorough examination to diagnose your condition, before talking through all the appropriate treatment options.

Orthodontic treatments at Harley Street include:

Ceramic braces

Braces remain the staple of orthodontics, but the modern varieties don’t have to be made from metal. Ceramic braces comprise clear and tooth-coloured parts, and can be used for a number of different purposes – quick aesthetic correction (so-called “cosmetic orthodontics”) as well as treating more serious and complex conditions.

Lingual braces

Lingual braces are attached to the rear surfaces of the teeth, thus pass unnoticed in day-to-day life. They can be used to treat complex cases, and because the Incognito lingual braces we use at Harley Street Dental Clinic are made from gold alloy, they are a great option for those allergic to nickel.


Invisalign treatment involves the use of a series of clear, removable aligners, for minimal lifestyle impact.
