What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the specialist branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment for misaligned teeth and bite problems.

In the past, orthodontics has tended to focus on teeth straightening for children. However, more adults are now wanting to transform their teeth to show off a beautiful new smile.

Recent advances in technology have meant that dental braces are now much more discreet and comfortable than ever, and this is another reason why more adults in Battersea, Stockwell, Wandsworth, Brixton, Clapham and throughout London are choosing to straighten teeth.

Adult braces won’t just straighten teeth, they can also help with overcrowded, gappy and protruding teeth. Braces can also help with some bite problems.

What are the options for teeth straightening at The Cosmetic Dental Gallery?

At The Cosmetic Dental Gallery in Battersea, we are proud to offer 3 different types of dental braces. We know that everyone is different and so what suits one patient may not be right for another.

At your first free consultation, we will assess your teeth and discuss which options might work best to straighten your teeth. Other factors that may influence your decision include your lifestyle, your general health, and the severity of your orthodontic need.

Invisalign is a popular dental brace because it is so discreet. There are no metal wires or brackets. Instead, Invisalign is made up of a series of clear, plastic aligners which sit over the top of your teeth like a mouth guard.
They’re not only difficult to see, but they’re also removable braces which means you take them out to eat, drink, and to brush your teeth.

Fixed braces
As their name suggests, these metal braces are fixed onto your teeth for the duration of your treatment.

We continue to offer this traditional form of teeth straightening at The Cosmetic Dental Gallery because it remains the most precise and accurate way to straighten teeth. If you have a severe orthodontic need, or you have a particular bite problem, we may recommend fixed braces to you.

Lingual braces
Lingual braces are a form of a fixed brace, but they are attached to the back of your teeth, so they are far more discreet. As with fixed braces, they remain a precise way to straighten teeth.

Great experience

Great experience with Dr. Tej and the entire team! Great addition to the area which until now lacked such quality dentistry.


Best Treatment Plans & Aftercare

I recently visited the practise for my composite bonding treatment. I was very nervous for the result but Dr Tej and the staff made me feel very comfortable. Dr Tej took so much care in perfecting my smile, as if my teeth were an art piece! I am so happy with the result, I used to be afraid to show my teeth whilst smiling and now I get so many compliments for having a beautiful smile! And to add to this, Dr Tej ensured that not only did my smile look amazing, but offered me genuine advice on the best treatment plans and aftercare, as well as making sure I didn’t experience any pain or discomfort!

What are the benefits of orthodontics in Battersea?

Patients from Battersea, Clapham, Stockwell, Wandsworth, Brixton and throughout London are choosing to straighten teeth with adult orthodontics because:
Orthodontics will straighten teeth and sort out other issues such as overcrowded or gappy teeth to give you a beautiful new smile
After having orthodontic treatment your teeth will not only look better but feel better too. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean and free from plaque and staining
Straight teeth will give you the confidence to smile again!
Orthodontic treatment will ensure that your bite is correct which will help your teeth to function properly and keep them healthy


Do you treat children as well as adults for orthodontics?
Yes, we treat adults and children for orthodontics. There isn’t really any difference in treatment, both will involve wearing a form of dental brace. We recommend children wear a fixed brace rather than Invisalign.
Will I have to have teeth extracted with orthodontics?
We prefer not to extract teeth, but sometimes, particularly if you have overcrowded teeth, we need to make room. We will discuss this with you at your initial consultation and talk through the options.
Do I need a referral from my dentist to see an orthodontist?
No, this is not necessary. We will see most patients who are not happy with the appearance of their teeth, and you can get in touch with us directly for a free initial consultation.
