Over the past two decades cosmetic alternatives to fixed standard metal braces have become more technologically advanced and reliable.


As a result the demand for them has surged, and many adults who put up with misaligned teeth for years have felt ready to straighten their teeth because it’s finally possible to do so in a discreet way.

We offer three types of invisible treatments:

  • Invisalign — clear plastic removable appliances that are best suited to relatively minor corrections
  • Fixed lingual braces — braces fixed behind the teeth, hidden from view and suitable for use in treating more complex cases
  • Ceramic braces — fixed braces that use clear brackets instead of stainless steel

While general dental practitioners may offer an invisible treatment (typically aligners), our selection of treatments and the range of problems we are able to treat with them is substantially broader. Our lead clinician Rob Slater has an excellent feel for what will work and is recognised as a pioneering practitioner in the use of lingual braces.

We are able to offer you combinations of treatments that may be more effective in treating your problem than a treatment using just one appliance. An example of this could be using Invisalign to correct your lower teeth and a fixed lingual brace on your upper teeth. Also, if your initial treatment is not as successful as hoped for, there are alternative invisible options that you can turn to — a versatility that general dental practitioners are unlikely to offer.

Pros of invisible braces

  • They are less visible than fixed standard braces and some
    appliances are entirely hidden
  • You will feel less disruption to your social and professional
    life during treatment
  • With Invisalign you can eat and drink normally and the
    appliances are easy to keep clean
  • There is nowhere better than One Devonshire Place to
    provide treatment with lingual braces
  • Our principal dentist, specialist orthodontist Rob Slater,
    was one of the first people in the UK to receive a master’s
    degree in lingual orthodontics, and the first orthodontist in
    the Midlands to deliver lingual braces regularly.

What to expect

You will need to replace your aligners approximately every two weeks. We can supply several sets of appliances at a time to keep your visits to the clinic to a minimum, although we will need to see you regularly to monitor your progress and ensure that the treatment is on track to produce a stable outcome.
