Adults Braces in London

Thanks to the latest advancements in orthodontic treatments, more people are starting to consider adult braces in London these days. We have successfully treated adult patients across all age groups, ranging from 18 to 64 years old.

Orthodontic braces for adults can have a great impact on improving your overall appearance and self-worth. This is ideal for people who have failed to wear braces during their childhood. Orthodontists have found that these clear retainers should be worn for at least 20 to 22 hours per day and that you should ideally only remove them when it is time for brushing, flossing, eating or drinking. Thus, adults who had braces as a child may find that their teeth have moved to their original position. Tooth alignment can be done at any age. You can always get back your gorgeous smile.

Having a straighter smile can create a big difference to your overall appearance. It will also help in improving the health of your teeth and gums. Crooked teeth may be the reason for tooth decay, wear of tooth enamel, jaw joint pain, headaches, gum disease and bone loss.

Types of Adult Braces

When choosing adult braces, many people think about the impact of wearing them in public. Luckily, there are new orthodontic options available like invisible braces that are almost invisible to onlookers. Thus, no one will be able to properly see that you are wearing braces to straighten your teeth.

We offer different types of adults braces as below:

  • Invisalign: Invisalign will shift your teeth into the desired position with clear aligners that are virtually invisible. Read more
  • Invisalign i7: Invisalign i7 is a product created by the Invisalign brace makers which works in the same way, though on a smaller scale. Read more
  • Invisalign Lite: These braces are generally for the ones who require slight movements to achieve their desired smile. Read more
  • CFast : It provides clearly visible results within a short amount of time when compared to other treatments which take anywhere between 18 and 24 months.
  • Inman Aligners: This removable appliance is used to provide its own results or in the preparation of a larger cosmetic dental procedure. 
  • Short-term Orthodontic Braces: These fast braces help to straighten your teeth within a few months by focusing only on your visible teeth when you smile. Read more

What are the benefits of wearing adult braces?

People usually link braces with having straighter teeth. The benefits do not end there. If you are having crooked teeth, then it is quite difficult to brush properly. Thus, straightening them will make it easier for you to reach those surfaces of the teeth and give them a thorough cleaning.

Who can wear adult orthodontic braces?

The right age to wear dental braces is usually between 10 and 14. However, braces are still effective at any age. According to studies, it has been found that 75% of adults have fitted wearing these braces, with two-thirds of those adults in the age group between 26 and 40.

Though some adults may fit them for health reasons, in many cases it has much more to do with the aesthetic look of their teeth and smile.

One condition for wearing adult braces is that your teeth are in good condition and you maintain good dental hygiene. If your teeth have been damaged due to decay, gum disease, or extensive restorative work like crowns, then you might not be able to perform all kinds of orthodontic treatments. In this case, you need to choose dental implants or veneers to improve the overall appearance of your teeth.

How long will adult orthodontic treatment take?

The treatment time will differ depending on the patient and their needs. Mild problems may sometimes take only a few months to treat. More complex problems can require almost two years. Usually, comprehensive orthodontic treatments require somewhere between 12 and 18 months. However, many adults prefer to make cosmetic improvements just to the front teeth that can be achieved within six months.

Your orthodontist can provide an overall idea of how long your treatment will take when you visit for a consultation.

reviews-star.pngHighly recommend Museum Dental Suite. Their work is of the highest calibre, professional and friendly. I'm very thankful they for excellent aftercare advice and for making me relaxed and so well treated. I've recommended them to both my family and friends.


reviews-star.pngI have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.

My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.

I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.

Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!


reviews-star.pngFirstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.

I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.

The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!

Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.


reviews-star.pngThis is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.


reviews-star.pngBest dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!


reviews-star.pngAfter lots of research I was very happy with the results and the service at Museum Dental. 100% I would recommend to a friend. I couldn't be more pleased.
