Braces Tailored To Suit You

Braces for children and teenagers

  • Discreet adult braces from £3,000
  • Platinum Elite providers of Invisalign

Suffer from mild crowding? Or have a severe bite problem? The orthodontists at our London practice in Maida Vale have several orthodontic solutions – including fixed and removable braces.

Straighten teeth faster and more comfortably

Braces for Adults | Braces for Children & Teens

When working with our orthodontists, we’ll likely use braces to realign your smile and improve the bite’s function and comfort. We’ll also plan your orthodontic treatment to also improve the appearance of crooked, protruding and crowded teeth and at the same time address bite conditions like overbites, crossbites and open bites. Whatever your misalignment issue, you can trust that we can straighten your teeth in as little as 6 months.

Cost of braces

The below prices include both arches (upper and lower teeth). If you want to straighten just one arch, the price is half.

Depending on the type of braces you choose, the price can vary. For example, Invisalign is more expensive than fixed braces, because it uses patented materials that straighten teeth faster, more comfortably and discreetly. 

Fixed braces will likely be your cheapest option, but they’ll also most likely take the longest – but again, this will depend on how severe your bite problem is. For example, Invisalign Lite can straighten teeth in as little as three months if you suffer from mild crowding, and as it uses fewer aligners, it is cheaper than the full version of the system.

Quick contact

The process of straightening explained

Depending on which orthodontic appliance you opt for to straighten your teeth, the process will vary. Explore below.

You’ll have a series of customised Invisalign aligners, which you will swap out and change around every two weeks, to gradually move and straighten your smile over  time. You won’t need to come into the practice for your new aligners, or for any adjustments – leaving you to continue your treatment in peace and private.

Metal braces use a system of brackets and wires that apply constant pressure to shift teeth into their correct position. Metal braces will need several adjustments, where patients will be required to come into the office once every two weeks or so to have them tightened.

Just like metal braces, ceramic braces work by applying continuous pressure to teeth over a longer period of 18-24 months. Ceramic braces are slower because even they have the benefit of being white, the material is not as strong as metal or plastic and as a result, shift teeth more slowly into their right alignment. 

Self-ligating braces, differing slightly to metal, use specialised clips in place of elastics that help the arch wire guide teeth into their correct position. The clips do not put as much pressure on the tooth, which decreases the number of adjustments you’ll require as there are no elastics to replace.

Invisalign - probably the best choice for adult braces

Invisalign® Is An Innovative And Technically Advanced Aligner System Consisting Of Clear, Near Invisible Trays.

These removable, completely custom-designed aligners, are meticulously engineered from a highly elastic, transparent and clinically tested material for ultimate style, discretion, movement control and comfort.

The many advantages of Invisalign make them an incredible choice for adult braces, because they’re not as obvious to the eye and can be removed for important events, or when you’re eating.

Plus, as Invisalign has revolutionised the orthodontic world, they do not have the same stigma that’s commonly attached to metal braces. 

They’re a thin, comfortable, very clear plastic that fits your teeth perfectly – so they’re not like thick and bulky retainers you might remember from childhood. Not to mention, you can be done with treatment much more quickly.

I've been receiving orthodontic treatment for about a year now with Dr. Ines and she's a wonderful mixture of highly skilled and professional, very thorough, and gentle in her approach. She is also super personable and I always look forward to my monthly appointments with her. She's made such a big improvement to my teeth and I'm very happy with my treatment so far -- I highly recommend Dr. Ines. I've also had other treatments with Maida Smiles and always had a great experience, especially with my wisdom teeth removal (by Dr. Pedro) that went very smoothly without any issues. The team's treatment coordinator/dentist nurse Cinthia is also always super kind and helpful if you have any questions or want to understand treatments.

I had the lovely Dr Shankar for a 4 month Invisalign treatment. I mainly had overcrowding that needed sorting out after having had braces as a teenager and not wearing my retainer. Dr Shankar was delightful and has a lovely energy about him that made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. He explained processes well and also gave good advice to help me make informed decisions. I would highly highly recommend him to anyone in the Maida Vale area!

I had 2 wisdom teeth (on the same side) removed by Dr Pedro. I had a much better experience than I expected. One month later, I have completely recovered without any complications. Absolutely recommend!

I was recommended to start my treatment at the clinic and I couldn't be more pleased. It has been 6 months since I put my braces on and I am being followed by Dr. Ines and Dr. Cíntia. I can already see great changes and can't wait for the final result. Excellent professionals. The whole environment is very calm which makes you comfortable. 100% recommend Maida Smiles Clinic.

Following a friend’s recommendation, I brought my eldest daughter to Dr Ines do Carmo for orthodontic treatment. Ines has been brilliant throughout the treatment; she is incredibly passionate about her work and this is reflected in her skilled perfectionism and the amazing results she achieves for her patients. From the start, Ines’ warm and friendly manner succeeded in putting my apprehensive daughter at ease. She was also forthcoming and thorough in her explanations of the treatment, and happy to share her extensive knowledge. My daughter now has an even lovelier smile thanks to Ines. I highly recommend her and will be bringing my younger children to her for their orthodontic treatment.

Dr. Ines and Cintia took care of me and made me feel welcome during the consultation. I will continue my treatment in the clinic. I recommend the clinic and especially Dr. Ines do Carmo.

It is my good fortune to have found Dra inês at Maida Smiles Clinic and to have her as my orthodontist. My complex orthodontic treatment, as an adult, defies all laws of physics, but Dra Inês has the most amazing professional expertise and compassion to help and change lives, and she is helping me massively. In each consultation, Dra Inês moves one-step forward to improve my bite, my oral health in general and my smile! I will be forever grateful to Dra Inês for her outstanding care, professionalism and support she provides in each visit, in such a caring and friendly way. I warmly recommend Dra Inês and Maida Smiles Clinic to anyone who os considering orthodontics.

We were on a short trip to London and my wife's implant got loose. We called Maida Smiles and they immediately saw her. They kindly sorted the issue out and my wife was extremely satisfied with the kind, friendly and professional service. Thanks Dr Pedro.

I can’t thank enough Dr Pedro Gutierres and Maida Smiles’ team for guiding me through a multiple teeth extraction operation I had at the clinic recently. I’m a very anxious patient and everyone at Maida Smiles went above and beyond to accommodate my questions, asks and concerns. The operation itself was painless and positively uneventful, healing was quick and after-care second to none. Never thought I’d say this to myself but I’m looking forward to my next dentist appointment at Maida Smiles.
