Here at the Harley Street Dental Clinic, we’ve been committed to providing a standard of excellence, professionalism and care within cosmetic dentistry for over thirty years. As Harley Street is such a highly respected area for medical and dental services, steeped in rich history and notable residents in their respective fields – we try our best to provide a standard of care which is befitting our historic surroundings. It is our dental clinic philosophy that each individual patient is unique, and as such, each form of treatment and care provided ought to be catered to the specific needs and requirements of each individual patient. Rather than adopting the one-size-fits-all approach to cosmetic dentistry which is commonplace in all too many practices across the city, here at our dental clinic Harley Street Dental Clinic on Harley Street, we provide a more bespoke, tailored dental experience. We make an active effort to get to know our patients on a personal level and make their dental clinic experience with us is a truly informed and positive one.
Bedrock of the community
Treatment from us here in Harley Street is only carried out by a dentist whom the patient trusts and respects wholeheartedly, and only commences when the patient feels ready. Prior to seeking any treatment with us, patients must first conduct lengthy, but informal meetings and consultations with our trusted and trained in-house dentist – where the basics of each procedure are covered, and a relationship built on trust and respect is formed. Only once a patient feels comfortable and ready to proceed, do we commence with any form of treatment.
One service we offer here at Harley Street which is particularly popular is the installation of discreet dental aligners such as Invisalign. These are a cosmetic alternative to conventional methods of orthodontic realignment – such as typical metal, fused braces – often referred to as ‘train-tracks’ which are largely uncomfortable and have a big impact on the outward appearance of patients. Invisalign is a non-invasive alternative form of treatment which utilises a custom made retainer – constructed from a patented SmartTrack plastic, chosen for it’s uniquely malleable, yet firm consistency. This retainer, when worn over the course of treatment, uses built in, specifically placed pressure points to gradually push teeth back into their correct alignment. The specifications of which would be established prior to beginning treatment by a trusted dentist of the patient’s choosing. Invisalign treatment generally lasts for around twelve months, but depends on the extent of treatment needed. One of the main attractions of Invisalign over conventional orthodontics is that, when worn, the retainer is practically invisible – and thus patients can undergo essential dental alignment discreetly, without attracting any unwanted attention from peers or colleagues. Another benefit of this method of treatment is that – unlike fused braces – the retainer is removable and as such treatment can be carried out at a time that is convenient to the patient – such as when at home, or asleep. Treatment of this nature can be massively beneficial in both restoring the smile of our patients, as well as boosting their self-esteem and renewing their confidence.
