Our orthodontic treatments are tailored to your needs to give the best possible results, so we offer a range of removable and fixed appliance options.
Whatever your daily life demands, you can be sure that Smile Chic will have teeth straightening options to match.
All of our teeth straightening treatments share the same goals – to realign teeth, correct your bite, and give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the teeth straightening services we offer.
Removable braces, or clear aligners have seen a big growth in popularity over recent years – and for good reason. This revolutionary approach provides effective and reliable teeth straightening treatment for misaligned teeth whilst remaining extremely discrete.
If you’re keen to get your teeth straightened but feel put off by traditional braces, then a removable brace treatment could be the way to go. In fact, no one will know that you’re wearing braces unless you decide to tell them.
Removable brace treatments always start with a preliminary appointment. This session allows us to fully examine your face, mouth, and teeth to determine what kind of orthodontic treatment you will benefit from.
Our in-depth assessment will include state-of-the-art 3D scans to help calculate the teeth movement required to get your smile where you want it to be. If you choose to continue with removable braces, we will use our IntraOral digital scanner to create your custom, removable teeth aligners.
Approximately every two weeks, you’ll move on to the next set of clear aligners – we’ll see you every six weeks to monitor your progress. Removable brace treatment usually lasts around 12 months, but this can vary depending on your specific situation.Find out more
The alternative to removable aligners is fixed, invisible braces. Fixed braces feature brackets that are secured onto each tooth and a discrete wire that holds them together. A fixed appliance gently straightens crooked teeth for a beautiful smile.
Just as with a removable brace treatment, we’ll invite you for an initial appointment to assess your requirements. A detailed orthodontic treatment plan will be put together that caters exactly to your needs.
You’ll then attend a fitting appointment where your dentist will attach the dental braces to your teeth. The brackets we use are either clear or teeth coloured, resulting in a discrete appliance that shows off your ever-improving smile. The wire will then be put into place, and you’ll be given all the information you need to care for your appliance.
As the treatment progresses, we’ll book you in for regular wire tightening appointments. These sessions also give us the chance to check that everything is running smoothly and ensure that your teeth are getting the best possible care.

Frequently asked questions
Teeth Straightening FAQs
Are removable braces better than traditional braces?
Both clear aligners and traditional fixed braces are excellent orthodontic treatments. One is not better than the other, and it completely depends on your needs and lifestyle as to which will be the best choice.
One of the biggest advantages of removable braces is that they can be very discrete. In fact, many of our customers report that no one has noticed they are wearing braces at all. The idea of fixed braces puts many people off, and removable aligners present a great alternative.
That said, fixed appliances are always going to be one of the best ways to straighten teeth. Although not quite as discrete as a removable aligner, our use of clear brackets makes our fixed appliances much less noticeable.
What's the best age for cosmetic teeth straightening?
For children, it’s widely considered that the early teenage years are the best ages to get orthodontic treatment. This is because their adult teeth have had time to develop, but their mouths and jaws are still growing. Of course, everyone develops at different rates, and the ideal age range will vary accordingly.
For adults, any time is as good as the next. The treatments available to a fully developed mouth can be more limited than with younger people, but there are still plenty of options available for teeth straightening.
Adults are also more likely to suffer from tooth decay and other dental problems, making teeth straightening procedures slightly more complicated. However, with the right dental care, anyone can achieve the perfect smile.
Can I straighten my teeth without braces?
Using braces is by far the safest, easiest, and most efficient teeth straightening method. Whether you choose to wait for a free NHS treatment or go with private orthodontic treatment, braces will be the tool used to straighten your teeth.
When many people think about braces, they have an outdated image of bulky metal braces.
These days, braces are designed to be as discrete and comfortable as possible. If you are worried about having a fixed appliance, then we’d recommend researching removable aligners.
How long does it take to straighten crooked teeth?
This will depend on the current alignment of your teeth and the exact treatment you are pursuing. Some programmes, such as Quick Straight Teeth, will see very rapid results, whereas others take a slower approach. Most adults will require around 12 months of treatment, on average, to achieve their desired results.
