A clearer way to straight teeth

Many adults are beginning to appreciate that having straight teeth means that their natural pearly whites will last much longer, possibly even for the rest of their lives.

When the teeth are lined up straight, they support each other much better, whereas when they are wonky, some teeth take more of the chewing pressure than others. Constant excess pressure can lead these teeth to crumble away, and can also create jaw, neck, and head pain.

Clear Braces in Harley StreetAlong with these, when the teeth are straight, there are fewer places for bacterial plaque to hide away and build up to create decay and gum disease.

A discreet solution

When it comes to teeth straightening in Harley Street, clear braces are the most popular method for adults. This is because metal braces are obtrusive, and however good they are, they come with connotations of awkward adolescence and that is something adults in positions of authority or trust wish to avoid.

At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we offer clear braces in Harley Street that work just as well as metal braces. Many adults are content to just straighten the teeth that are on display at the front of the mouth. These are known as the social six teeth, and straightening them with clear braces in Harley Street can be quite a bit quicker than people think. This is because we are not dealing with complications to do with aligning the jaws, which takes much longer, two or three years, to complete. With the front social six teeth, the crowns are supported by fewer roots than the back molars, and so do not need as much force to get them to shift.

This means that the clear braces can be smaller in form. The brackets are smaller and made of clear ceramic, and the wires, which are tooth-coloured nickel titanium, can be finer too. With shorter treatment times as well, it’s no wonder that more and more adults are choosing to get their teeth straightened with us at Harley Street Dental Clinic. Why not make an appointment and find out if we can align your teeth, quickly and unobtrusively?

The power of a great smile

Never underestimate the power of your smile. In a survey conducted by this year’s National Smile Month, a smile is the first thing someone notices about you when they meet you for the first time. Our smile is our universal currency of friendliness and warmth, and speaks beyond language. When you think about how many people you encounter in a typical day in a busy city like London, you can see how important a smile is.

At Harley Street Dental Clinic, having a great smile is as important as having healthy teeth. Our cosmetic dentist in Harley Street is a vital part of our team because we want everyone who comes through our doors to be able to have the treatments they need to have a world class smile.

Cosmetic Dentist in Harley StreetSeeing a cosmetic dentist in Harley Street plays a vital role in people’s wellbeing. Not only because smiling is vital for smoothing one’s path through daily life, but also because smiling keeps us happy. When we smile we release the body’s natural feel-good chemicals, like serotonin. When we don’t smile, we can end up isolated and depressed.

Your journey with us

If you wish your smile was more lovely then why not schedule a consultation with our cosmetic dentist in Harley Street? You can tell them all about what makes your unhappy about your smile, and how you would like to look. Our cosmetic dentist can talk you through the various treatments available here and suggest one, or a combination of treatments, that can help you create a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

Depending on what you want done, the whole process can take as little as one appointment, and as long as several months. Whitening is our quickest treatment and can be completed in as little as an hour. It is a great stand-alone smile enhancer and is also often used to add that final finishing touch to treatments such as teeth straightening.

Veneers and composite bonding are great ways to repair and cover up damaged teeth, while at the back of your mouth, inlays, onlays, and crowns can shore up teeth that need very big fillings.

Comfortable, modern dentistry

At our dental clinic in W1, we aim to put you at ease in the relaxed environment of a converted Georgian town house. Our team of friendly dental professionals are sensitive and reassuring, and in the waiting area there is a separate room for prayer or quiet contemplation.

Experience and knowledge

In our W1 dental clinic, we get to know you as a patient, discussing your dental history and oral health in depth, so that we can tailor our approach to suit your preferences. With up-to-date equipment and contemporary dental knowledge, our range of treatments can repair damaged teeth, realign smiles, and improve your oral health. When you visit our practice for regular check-ups, our experienced professionals can provide oral hygiene advice and reassurance.

Dental Clinic in W1Positive changes with lasting benefits

Our cosmetic dentistry solutions can turn discoloured or untidy teeth into bright and orderly smiles. If you’ve lost a tooth or even a whole set of teeth, we can give you durable replacements that look and feel natural. For children as well as adults, at Harley Street Dental Clinic we provide a high level of overall dental care, keeping your future oral health in mind while providing treatments with long-lasting benefits.

A set of veneers will make your front teeth whiter and neater, but they will also defend the teeth’s enamel surfaces from erosion. Realigning the teeth with braces will make them look and feel better, but they will also be easier to clean, helping to reduce the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. And dental implants will give you replacement teeth that can last for the rest of your life, while also helping to maintain the bone density in your jaw, protecting you from future weakness and reducing the risk of injury.

Affordable improvements

Our range of payment options makes visiting our W1 dental clinic affordable, so you can get your treatment at the time you need it, without having to wait to save a lump sum or dip into what you’ve already saved. Monthly payment plans reduce the financial impact of your dental health improvements, removing one of the barriers that can deter you from making positive changes to your dental health.

Quality oral health care

As your Harley Street dentist, we aim to provide an experience of dental care that is suited to your needs as a patient. Our practice is a spacious and elegantly converted Georgian townhouse. You’ll find a welcoming and friendly team of dental professionals, in a waiting area with comfortable furnishings, a television, and a discreet separate room for prayer or quiet contemplation. Our highly-trained and knowledgeable staff will talk to you about your feelings around London dentistry in general, as well as your oral health, so they can match you with a dentist who will provide the most suitable experience.

Dentist in Harley StreetTact and efficiency

You look after your overall health when you look after your oral health. And optimum oral health that minimises risks while it maximises benefits cannot be achieved without regular visits to the dentist. Harley Street Dental Clinic offers a range of services that will improve the condition of your teeth:

With routine check-ups, we can detect the early signs of decay and disease that are too subtle for you to see at home.

With preventative dentistry, we can make sure your oral health is robust and resilient, avoiding unnecessary complications as you age.

Our cosmetic dentistry options will enhance the appearance of your teeth, which can be uplifting to your social confidence. A brighter smile can change the way you feel about your overall appearance.

We can repair existing problems using modern methods and up-to-date equipment. If your teeth are chipped from injury or decay, dental veneers will make your smile neater and defend the teeth’s enamel surfaces against erosion.

By getting to know you as an individual, we can make recommendations that have real value, keeping your long-term oral health in mind at all times.

Accessible fees

The words ‘Harley Street dentist’ can sound expensive to many potential patients. We offer monthly financial plans for our treatments, so that you can access the solutions and improvements you need without enduring the financial discomfort of a lump-sum payment. Unnecessary delays are not good for your oral health, so we aim to reduce them as much as possible.

The key to a lovely smile

When you come to Harley Street Dental Clinic wanting to get your teeth straightened, you will be made an appointment with our orthodontist in Harley Street.

At our practice in Harley Street, the orthodontist is the dentist whose area of interest focusses on the branch of dentistry concerned with aligning the teeth and jaws.

When it comes to an orthodontist in Harley Street, we’ve got two to choose from.

Orthodontics in Harley StreetDr Emma Laing

Dr Laing qualified from Bristol University in 2002 with distinctions and the gold medal for best student. She has worked in various London hospitals to gain a Fellowship in Dental Surgery. She started training in orthodontics in 2005, qualifying as a specialist, registered with the General Dental Council, in 2008.

Dr Darsh Patel

Dr Patel qualified in dentistry in Manchester in 1998, and after gaining experience from numerous vocational training posts in London, qualified as a specialist orthodontist, registered with the General Dental Council, in 2001. Dr Patel is involved in face-driven orthodontics, which involves the removal of fewer teeth for orthodontic procedures.

More discreet than ever

Both our orthodontists in Harley Street can offer a wide range of devices for straightening teeth, many of which are far more discreet and more comfortable than the older types of metal train track braces that we associate with 1980s awkward adolescent movies. The modern braces are far more appealing for adults who didn’t get their teeth straightened as teenagers, or who did, but their teeth have now drifted out of alignment.

Very often, adults who want their teeth straightened do not need the major realignment of their jaws, but just tiny movements to bring the teeth at the front of their mouths, known as the social six, into order.

This means that the braces required can be smaller and treatment times can be quicker. Clear braces have smaller brackets and tooth-coloured wires, and sometimes only take about six months to do their work. There are also clear aligners, which look more like mouth guards. A series of these is worn, each for about two weeks, to align the teeth.

The best way to find out what system you need to align your teeth is to book a consultation with one of our orthodontists.

Replacing teeth with like for like

When we lose our teeth, we don’t really want to be told that they can only be replaced with things that take away our sense of taste, confine us to a soft food diet, or will mean losing healthy teeth to get them to stay in our mouths. Yet, up until not so very long ago, these were the available options. However, all that changed with the discovery of titanium as an implant material in the 1950s, and the resultant increasing availability and versatility of dental implants in Harley Street.

Dental Implants in Harley StreetAt Harley Street Dental Clinic, we think it is fair to say that the use of dental implants has reached a tipping point so that they are now more in demand than dentures and fixed bridges. And this is not surprising, considering that Harley Street dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that gives you back the full functionality of your teeth.

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants replace the root of the tooth as well as the crown. Having a new root firmly embedded into the jawbone allows once again for a stable and secure chewing base, capable of withstanding the multidirectional pressures, which can be about 200lb or 97kg for the average male chew. Compare this to dentures, which can only offer about a quarter of the chewing pressure, or bridges which can offer more, but you can’t have bitty foods, such as nuts, which get under the bridge and can be very uncomfortable.

In Harley Street, dental implants are more expensive than bridges and dentures, but we believe they still offer good value-for-money. This is because implants have a success rate of about 98% and can be expected to last for the rest of your life, provided you look after them with thorough cleaning to keep plaque at bay. The porcelain crowns of the implants cannot decay, but they are as susceptible to gum disease as natural teeth, and if gum disease attacks the bone holding your implants, they can become loose and fall out.

To find out if dental implants are right for you, why not book a consultation?

Effective braces with a discreet appearance

Many dental patients can be reluctant to have their teeth straightened because they don’t want to wear an uncomfortable appliance. Also, they don’t want that appliance to be embarrassingly eye-catching whenever they open their mouth in public.

But with modern invisible braces, Harley Street Dental Clinic provides you with a way to improve the appearance and health of your teeth, with technology that’s much more discreet than the traditional metal appliances.

Invisible Braces in Harley StreetA precisely-measured solution

Treatment with invisible braces in Harley Street will begin with a relaxed conversation in our friendly dental practice. We’ll use up-to-date equipment to take detailed images of your mouth, so that your treatment plan can be precisely adapted to your particular dental needs. Then we’ll produce a set of clear plastic aligners, 3D-printed to match your required improvements with efficiency and minimal discomfort.


You’ll wear one of these aligners in your mouth for around two weeks, before moving on to the next one. As our dentist keeps the procedure on track with regular check-ups at our practice in Harley Street, invisible braces like these will gently pressure your teeth to move into healthier positions. They can be removed during mealtimes and when you brush your teeth, so that disruption to your oral hygiene routine is kept to a minimum. Afterwards, you’ll probably need to wear a retainer at night, to secure the teeth in their new positions.

Advantages for many conditions

There are many reasons why we use this technology to realign patients’ teeth. Front teeth that stick out too much, teeth that are crowded and awkward in the mouth, and misaligned bites are all treatable by this method. For our patients with professional careers, the transparent material of their Harley Street invisible braces has enabled them to keep working and attending meetings with a minimum of social distress.

Healthy teeth look better

After your treatment, your smile will look much smarter, and you will enjoy a long-term overall improvement in your oral health and hygiene. Because the teeth are straighter, they are easier to keep clean, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. And their more efficient alignment will put less strain on your jaw.

Improving looks, feeling smarter

It’s often the desire to freshen their appearance that leads people to visit a cosmetic dentist in Harley Street. Discolouration can gradually turn the teeth from their natural white into a variety of undesirable yellows or browns. Teeth whitening is a simple way to get rid of this bothersome situation. Or perhaps your teeth are not quite as straight as you’d like, in which case a course of realignment will give them a more uniform appearance. A set of veneers can improve a wonky smile while providing the teeth’s enamel surfaces with a layer of extra protection.

Cosmetic Dentist in Harley StreetWhatever your reasons, cosmetic dentistry at Harley Street Dental Clinic can help you achieve a boost in social confidence while it enhances your appearance.

Experienced service

We aim to make the experience of visiting a cosmetic dentist in Harley Street a comfortable one, and we tailor our approach to make sure it’s suited to your overall dental needs. Our friendly dental professionals will talk to you about your teeth to find the most appropriate cosmetic treatment. Using modern imaging equipment, we will take detailed images of your mouth to ensure we can deliver our treatment with care and precision. With some treatments, we can show you computer-generated imagery of how your teeth will look after the procedure is complete. We have a wide selection of modern cosmetic solutions, and there’s always something we can do to boost your dental appearance.

Financial care

Some people can delay making the improvements they’ve always wanted because the cost of visiting a Harley Street cosmetic dentist can seem quite high. That’s why we offer payment plans for our treatments, so that achieving a brighter smile need not disrupt your finances. Monthly payment plans mean you don’t have to wait to save up a lump sum before you begin your treatment. So, if the condition of your teeth makes you reluctant to open your mouth when you smile, or if you worry that gaps in your teeth make you look unprofessional, we can get you started on a solution quickly, to help you move into a new phase of dental confidence.
