Orthodontics and Invisalign

Straight teeth are the basis of a confident and endearing smile. Many of our clients have longed for straight teeth for years. Taking the first step to a perfect smile is easy at Smilepod. We offer Invisalign and fixed braces to achieve the best results. Book a FREE consultation with our Orthodontic Specialist or one of our orthodontic trained dentists. At your consultation, we will discuss the options to suit you, and make sure all your questions are answered.

Fixed Braces Invisalign

Metal braces

These time tested devices are used for full control of your teeth, to produce very precise tooth movement to achieve an ideal result. The braces are bonded to the front surface of the teeth. Their big advantage is that they are less expensive and have a faster treatment time than ceramic braces.

  • Single Arch – £1,995
  • Dual Arch – £2,795

These braces are most commonly made from stainless steel and attached to the teeth using tooth-coloured filling material (composite resin). Care has to be taken eating hard foods as the brackets can be broken, leading to a disruption in treatment. An orthodontic wire (archwire) is tied (or ligated) into the bracket using coloured elastic rings, which can discolour in-between visits. These elastics can be silver coloured to blend in with the appliance or brightly coloured. As treatment progresses the orthodontist will progress to thicker wires, which can place greater force onto the teeth. The braces can easily be removed at the end of treatment leaving the teeth intact.

Tooth-coloured fixed braces

Our orthodontic team offer many of the leading brands of tooth-coloured ceramic braces including Clarity, Glam, Radiance & InVu

  • Single Arch – £2,295
  • Dual Arch – £3,395

Unlike Metal Braces, tooth-coloured fixed braces use tooth-coloured ceramic brackets to blend in with the tooth colour. This produces a more aesthetically pleasing appliance which is a far more attractive option. The orthodontic wires can also be tooth-coloured to help improve the appearance further. Ceramic fixed appliances can be as effective as conventional fixed appliances at achieving tooth movement, but it can take longer to achieve the desired result. Sometimes they are not recommended for the lower teeth if the bite is ‘deep’ because the hard material can damage the opposing teeth that contact the attachments. Ceramic appliances are slightly more difficult to remove than conventional fixed appliances, however, they are unlikely to damage healthy teeth.

Hygiene & cleaning with braces

Beautiful, clean teeth are key to the way we look and feel about ourselves and how others see us. We all try to look after our teeth: we brush, we floss, we use mouthwash regularly, but sometimes that isn’t enough to remove the toughest plaque deposits and give a polished smile.

Smilepod London offers a new approach to dentistry which takes away the irritations of traditional practices to make professional dental care truly accessible for the first time.

Many London dentists typically make you go through the time and cost of an initial dental appointment before referring you to a Hygienist. At Smilepod we don’t do that because all our treatments are carried out by fully qualified, friendly dentists in an attractive salon environment at a time and location which works for you.

Lingual hidden braces

Lingual braces fit discreetly behind your teeth. Our orthodontic team offer the leading brands including Incognito, Lingual 2D, Harmony & In-Ovation

  • Single Arch front 6 teeth £2,895 – Full-Arch 3,995
  • Dual Arch front 6 teeth £3,895 – Full-Arch £5,995

Unlike the metal braces or tooth-coloured braces, lingual braces are attached to the inside surface of the teeth, which makes them invisible to the outside world.
Some clients encounter initial difficulty in speaking, tongue soreness and problems in keeping the appliances clean. The cost of treatment with lingual appliances is more than other braces, which reflects the greater laboratory fees in producing the appliance and the increased time required in the adjustments by the dentist.

Functional Appliances:
These are fixed or removable appliances which are used to correct malocclusions by using facial musculature causing dental (and slight skeletal) changes. These are exclusively for children between 9-14 years old. The patients usually have increased or reduced overjet. Over jets are corrected at a rate of 1mm per month on average. They are usually used for a period of 6-9 months with or without fixed appliances (braces).

These appliances are effective and removable. Somewhat uncomfortable but they do reduce the time the patient would be in braces and also reduce the need to extract teeth. Speech is affected in the early stages, and there is a risk of breaking or losing the appliance.

Retainers

At the end of all orthodontic treatment, you will be required to wear retainers to stop your teeth moving.

There are two types of retainers, fixed and removable.

Removable retainers are made from clear plastic and fit snugly over your teeth. Fixed retainers are a small thin wire bonded behind the teeth. You dentist will discuss the alternatives towards the end of your treatment.

I cannot speak highly enough of Smilepod Soho. I went for cleaning and polish by Michaela. From the moment I walked in, the receptionist was extremely warm and friendly and welcoming. Michaela cleaned my teeth, and whilst they are not in the best shape, she was non judgemental, and probably one of the loveliest dentists I’ve ever had in my life. I’m so glad I took the first step to get my teeth fixed. I have already booked my follow-up appointment for next time. What an amazing place.

Had a fantastic experience with both a hygienist and a dental check up at Smilepod Soho! The best dentist in London by far.

I had a very good experience at Smilepod Canada Place, getting a check-up and classic cleaning done.Dr Adelina Haas and Prabina (Dental Nurse) put me at ease, and I felt quite relaxed during the appointment which is a feeling that most people would not associate with dental appointments. They were very nice, asking me lots of questions, and explained what they were going to do.I am due back for a filling in a few weeks time. I hope it goes as well

I had my teeth cleaning and diamond polish done by Dentist Roshni Goel. She is really sweet and gentle throughout the procedure. I barely had any discomfort while getting the cleaning done. She takes you through the whole process in detail and is very sweet to answer all your queries with patience. The only con is that the prices at Smilepod are quite high but I do recommend Hygienist Roshni Goel. Overall a great job done!

I got a cleaning there last week and it was phenomenal with Erika!After the cleaning I had some issues involving my wire and had to come back, they fixed everything up for free and gave me a little brush to help and did another mini cleaning of my bottom teeth. I was extremely happy about this kind of treatment, super happy to call them my dentists.

Really positive experience with hygienist Roshni Goel. My teeth are quite sensitive and she took utmost care during the cleaning; I didn’t feel much pain even with such sensitive teeth.

I am not fan of having hygiene appointments as my teeth are rather sensitive. Roshni Goel, the hygienist at Canada Place, took care of me beautifully by accommodating manual and mechanical clean interchangeably to minimize my distress. And this was highly important given my pregnancy. Going to send my husband to her!

Went for the Diamond polish. Inga, who is the hygienist specialist, was very professional and friendly. It was my first dentist appointment after 7 years and Inga did an exceptional job. I had all the hard plaque/tartar removed, including the stains I had from smoking! My teeth looks all fresh and clean. Inga also provided some great advice as well as providing me with couple of tiny brushes for me to clean areas that are in-between my teeth :) Highly recommend Inga for hygiene clean and polish.

I'm usually a little anxious about dental visits but soon relax when I arrive at Smilepod Soho. Diana at Reception is very welcoming and by the time we have exchanged a few pleasantries Katalin, my Hygienist, is there to greet me.Kati has been my hygienist for several years now and I feel comfortable in her very capable hands. She is efficient and gentle using a combination of ultrasonic and manual where required. I leave feeling reassured that I have had a thorough scale and polish and have been seen by a conscientious and professional practitioner.Katie also gives me important advice regarding my dental hygiene i.e. where I need to do a bit more work/cleaning etc - which I really appreciate.

Bit expensive but worth it! My appointment (Diamond Polish) with Roshni was a really positive experience, she talks you through every step of the process making sure you’re comfortable and telling you what she’s doing and why. All in all, it was brilliant and my teeth feel cleaner and whitern
