Fantastic result – straight teeth using lingual braces!

January 20th, 2020

” Having always been extremely insecure about my smile, Dr Hirani and the team at SmileLux have given me a smile I’m proud to show off and the confidence that goes with it. Lingual braces were perfect for me to feel comfortable carrying on my personal and professional life, safe in the knowledge that if I didn’t tell people I had braces, they wouldn’t know!
The entire team at SmileLux are an absolute joy to be around, extremely friendly, welcoming and caring. There isn’t a single person I wouldn’t recommend SmileLux to!”

Our patient Will travelled to see us from Nottingham for his appointments. We are very proud to have a number of patients who travel to come and see us! If you are looking for braces in Milton Keynes (or beyond!), contact us today on 01908 398068 to arrange a consultation. We can even offer a complimentary appointment first with our Treatment Coordinator to come and see the braces we have available up close over a coffee and ask any initial questions about them. 

 

Start your New Year with a New Smile!

January 6th, 2020

Set yourself the best New Years resolution ever and consider transforming your smile.

Braces can correct smiles in a number of ways, including:

By closing gaps and spaces

By straightening overcrowded teeth

Helping to improve the bite making chewing and biting food easier

Widening the arch to make the smile broader

Treatment can often be simple and an appointment with a Specialist Orthodontist will tell you how long your treatment will take or what is achievable in your time frame or budget.

If your treatment is of a complex nature, your braces do not need to be visible. This means you could be in braces for a long time without anybody knowing about it!

To find out more about how we can help fix your smile for 2020, contact a member of The SmileLux Team today on 01908 398068.

As a Specialist Orthodontic Practice in Milton Keynes we have a range of braces to choose from. We can even offer a free consultation for you to find out more about the options we have available.

Happy New Year from The SmileLux Team!

“Dr Hirani, Saijel and team have been wonderful and have really looked after me during my long journey.
I first visited SmileLux with very wonky and uneven teeth. I did not believe they could be straightened but now they look amazing so I can smile all day long!
Thank you”

Lingual braces are the most discreet orthodontic option as they are fitted to the back of the teeth. Often people with very complex cases will opt for this type of brace as they know from the beginning that they will be in braces for a long time to get the very best result. We are all really proud of our patient Clare as she has worked so hard to achieve this lovely new smile and we know she couldn’t be happier with it as well! 

SmileLux Orthodontic Practice in Milton Keynes treat patients all day every day with braces and have a range of different options available. If you are looking for an orthodontic practice to not only achieve the very best results in a lovely environment but also receive the very best service and quality, contact our friendly team today!

What is the process for getting braces?

Congratulations for taking the first step in changing your smile!

We often get asked how soon treatment can start and what the steps in the process so here is a guide that should help answer any initial questions:

  1. Free consultation (optional)

You may find it helpful to visit the practice for a complimentary consultation initially. This is usually with the Treatment Coordinator. The Treatment Coordinator will sit down with you and find out more about what you are hoping to achieve. They will also be able to show you the different types of braces and talk you through how they work. You will also be able to see some before and after photos. As the Treatment Coordinator is not a dentist, this appointment will not involve any checking of your teeth or clinical diagnosis and treatment planning.

 

  1. Full Orthodontic Assessment

This appointment is with the Specialist Orthodontist and is a much longer appointment. The Specialist Orthodontist will check the health of your teeth and gums, take full records including photos and a large scan x-ray. They will then sit with you to explain the diagnosis and treatment recommendations and where possible provide a treatment plan. They will also be able to give you an idea of the estimated length of time your treatment is expected to take.

 

  1. Paperwork appointment

You will be given time to decide which is the best treatment option for you. When you are ready and we have discussed how you wish to fund your treatment, a paperwork appointment will be arranged with our Treatment Coordinator. Dr Hirani will prepare a detailed consent form outlining all aspects of your treatment. We will then sit down with you to go through this and answer any questions you may have. When we are certain you are happy to proceed, we will ask you to sign your consent form and other paperwork to get started with your treatment.

 

  1. Records or brace fit appointment

Depending on the type of brace you choose, the next step will vary:

  1. a) For braces such as Invisalign, these are customised and full digital records will need to be taken before we can proceed with the paperwork appointment (ask a member of the SmileLux team for more information)
  2. b) Lingual braces are also customised and it is at this stage that the digital records would need to be taken which are sent to the laboratory for manufacture. They usually take around 8 weeks to be made.
  3. c) With ceramic or metal braces, treatment can usually begin as soon as there is a mutually suitable appointment after the paperwork has all been signed and finances are in place.

 

If you would like any further information for the process or have any other questions at all, please contact a member of the SmileLux team on 01908 398068. Our Orthodontist in Milton Keynes, Dr Sunil Hirani is trained to Hospital Consultant level as a Specialist Orthodontist.

A new wonderful smile with lingual braces.

“I am very impressed with the practice and treatment received and cannot think of anything that I think would require improvement. The team went above and beyond in meeting my expectations.  From the warm welcomes at reception to the explanations of what to expect throughout my treatment. I also found the reminders and all other communication very helpful. An outstanding service providing outstanding results”.

Our lovely patient Shital had lingual braces which were fitted behind her teeth as she has a professional career and did not want a brace that was visible. We are sure everyone will agree what an amazing smile transformation this is just by looking at the photos. Shital is very happy with her new smile! 

If you are looking for a discreet brace or want to find out more about the different options we have available here at SmileLux in Milton Keynes, contact us today on 01908 398068.

Ceramic braces with Suresmile gives a beautiful result!

” I would highly recommend SmileLux to anyone who is not confident about there teeth, as although I had to wait 2 years for my dream teeth, it was totally worth it and I am constantly smiling and can not thank SmileLux enough.”

With orthodontic treatment, no two cases are the same. This is why the fees and treatment time can vary so much from one patient to the next. It is important that a full assessment is carried out by an Orthodontist to determine the level of complexity and length of time the treatment is expected to take. Our Orthodontic Practice in Milton Keynes is a Specialist practice and therefore we are able to offer many different orthodontic options to suit most lifestyles and budgets. 

For this patient, we used a system called Suresmile which is special wires that are bent by robot technology. This can finesse the clinical result and can also reduce the treatment time by 30%. If you are interested in finding out more about how we can help, contact the SmileLux team today on 01908 398068.

Wonderful Invisalign result!

October 21st, 2019

” I didn’t mind my teeth when I was growing up but as I got into my early twenties I started to notice something – as one of my lateral incisors was tilted, it was stuck on my lip in every photo that I smiled in! From that point on, it was all I could see when I smiled. My lower teeth were also all over the place, so after seeing a friend’s results during treatment at SmileLux I decided to make an appointment. After deciding that Invisalign would suit me and my lifestyle, my trays were ordered…
The service I received during my treatment was excellent. The team are always polite and friendly and will go out of their way to help you.
Dr Hirani is nothing short of an orthodontic genuis and his passion and knowledge about all aspects of orthodontia radiates through the practice, from conversations we had about my treatment to the variety of options available at the practice and pioneering new technology to make the experience better for all involved.
My treatment took longer than anticipated but at no point did I feel as though I was an inconvenience- Dr Hirani and the team were totally focussed on getting the best result for me which I am truly grateful for.
All in all, I would wholeheartedly recommend SmileLux to anyone considering orthodontic treatment. I love my new smile!!!!”

Invisalign is a very popular option as it is so discreet. If you are looking to have your teeth straightened and are worried about people seeing your brace, Invisalign  may be a great solution for you.
