Short term orthodontic treatment Watford
Invisible (clear) braces and Inman Aligners Watford

What are Short Term Orthodontic treatments?

Short Term Orthodontic treatments focus on the alignment of teeth in the aesthetic zone (the front teeth only). Short-term braces are designed to straighten teeth quickly, with results as soon as six months. The fact that short-term orthodontics can assist to alleviate crowding and the look of the front six upper and lower teeth, commonly known as the “social six,” makes it appealing to many patients.

What are Cosmetically Focused Orthodontics?

Cosmetically focused orthodontics is a philosophy of treatment that can be delivered with removable spring appliances (Inman Aligners), as well as a clear aligner system (such as Clear Smile Aligners or Invisaligns). Cosmetically focused orthodontics is a very powerful tool because it is:

  • Conservative
  • Quick
  • Predictable
  • Lasting
  • Relatively inexpensive 

We have three different brace options so you and I can discuss the brace that most suits your needs.

There are circumstances that you can get NHS braces as an adult. It usually goes hand in hand with face/jaw surgery and will require a referral to the hospital. We will refer you if we think your treatment could be carried out on the NHS.
If you are suitable, the treatment can be completed in as little as 10 weeks, so it doesn’t need to go on for years.
With many of the straightening treatments, we offer free teeth whitening. So you get a dazzling white smile to go with your straight teeth. A complete smile makeover!
We offer Saturday appointments or late evening appointments are available on request.
Some patients can have many different types of braces, other patients are not suitable. This means you need a consultation to be advised which brace is best. All the options will be discussed with you before you make a choice.
Please do not try any home remedies. There is a serious risk of losing your teeth. Dentists and orthodontists are trained to establish how the teeth can move safely and by how far, making you a beautiful smile limiting the risks.
Braces are not invisible, they are clear, but they are discrete. This means you can wear them at work and during meetings and telephone calls. They can also be removed if necessary. Teeth Straightening is not like it used to be.
Adult braces can cost from only £2000, depending on the number of teeth being aligned. So you don’t have to spend many thousands of pounds aligning all your teeth. We call it “Social Six Orthodontics”. The cost covers your digital analysis, the pre-op assessment, radiographs and clinical photos, the cost of bespoke aligners made for you, the multiple appointment costs and your dental team fees.
Yes. If you qualify, the cost can be spread over 3 installments.
We carry out a full orthodontic assessment. This is much more than a standard check-up. We make sure the braces are suitable for your teeth, gums, smile, face & bone structure. We make sure the outcome is what you expect. A smile scan is only a possibility. If there are issues mid treatment, we are here for you. Dentist fitted – Dentist assessed – Dentist supported.

After your teeth straightening is finished and your teeth are whitened, we can add a small amount of white filling materials to the edge of your teeth. Direct composite bonding offers a fast, affordable and effective solution to fix minor cosmetic issues. They are cheaper and more conservative alternative to porcelain veneers.

The colour of the resin is matched to your tooth colour so it appears natural and adds a nice finish to your orthodontic treatment. Also, small gaps can be closed using direct bonding.

Yes, the cost is based on the number of the teeth which require bonding. Discuss the option with Dr Kimia if you are interested.
No, they are made of resin and they will wear off or chip and will need repair, replacement or maintenance. If you look after them and do not clench/grind your teeth, they should last for 2-3 years.
