Fantastic result – straight teeth using lingual braces!

Monday, 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.

“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!

“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!

” 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!

” 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.

Braces on the top front teeth only – lovely result!

“I am so grateful to have found SmileLux. I was a nervous patient who hadn’t been to the dentist for a while. However Dr Hirani put me at ease from the very first appointment. He is very patient and explains what treatment options are available and the cost involved. I am very happy with the treatment I had, everyone at the practice made me feel so welcome and relaxed it has been a joy to go to the appointments. I would like to thank you all for your care and help. I would certainly recommend the procedure and practice to anyone.”

It is sometimes possible to put a brace on the front 6-8 teeth only which is known as sectional braces. This patient was happy with her bottom teeth and just wanted cosmetic improvement of her top front teeth as she disliked the gap. Whether a patient is suitable for sectional treatment depends on their bite and the result they are hoping to achieve. This treatment took 12 months and the patient chose lingual braces, behind the teeth.

To find out if sectional treatment is possible for you, contact a member of the SmileLux team today on 01908 398068. We have a range of braces in Milton Keynes suitable for every lifestyle.

Wonderful result with ceramic braces and dental implants

Our lovely patient Chanel was delighted with the transformation of her smile for her wedding. We used ceramic braces to realign her teeth and make space for two dental implants.

Often braces are used for function and not just cosmetic reasons, like in Chanel’s case. She now has a proper bite and is able to enjoy everyday life showing off her lovely new smile. Although we are an orthodontic practice, we can work with general dentists or restorative specialists to ensure the very best clinical result possible. Braces on their own are not always enough to improve a smile in the best possible way and a team of expertise is required.

If you are looking at getting the very best clinical result for your smile and have missing teeth, braces could be used to either close gaps or create more space for restorative treatments such as crown and bridgework or dental implants

Contact us to find out more about how we can help. Our Orthodontic Practice in Milton Keynes specialises in all different types of cases, from the most simple to the most complex. Nothing is too much trouble for us to fix!

 

A challenging case and great results using ceramic braces!

“When I started treatment, I was not confident with my smile. I had a lot of teeth removed as a young child and the experience left me feeling nervous about visiting the dentist and wishing that there had been an alternative to having so many teeth removed.
I wish I had taken up orthodontic treatment sooner. The results are amazing and this has transformed the shape of my teeth and restored confidence.
The experience at SmileLux has been positive throughout. The team are helpful and friendly and very efficient and attentive. Dr Hirani explains every step of the way and reassures you if you have any concerns. My personal orthodontic treatment took 3 years and it is certainly a commitment, but I am glad that I took that step and have felt confident throughout the treatment process that I am being well looked after. It has definitely been worth it. As a patient you will feel valued and cared for. The whole team work well together and you feel welcomed and assured.”

We see many different types of cases here at SmileLux in Milton Keynes, from the most simple alignment using a section of a brace to the most complex cases where full braces are required. We usually estimate that treatment would take a minimum of 12 months and a maximum of 2 years however often if a case is extremely difficult, it may take longer. It also depends on how quickly a patient responds to the treatment, we often will not know this until treatment starts. 

Our Specialist Orthodontist in Milton Keynes, Dr Sunil Hirani, has many years of experience in dealing with all different types of cases. Having originally trained to Hospital Consultant level, he still undergoes regular training and development to be one of the very best in his field and is proud to be able to offer this level of expertise to our patients to achieve such wonderful results.

Great result using ceramic braces and Suresmile technology

Monday, June 24th, 2019

This patient had what we call a “Deep Bite” meaning that the upper front teeth cover far too much of the lower teeth when biting. This can cause problems later in life such as tooth wear. You can see from the photos that some wear of the lower front teeth has already occurred. Over time the teeth can become very sensitive to hot and cold and can become brittle needing further restorative dentistry such as fillings, crowns or veneers.

We all associate having braces to cosmetically improve smiles however people are becoming more aware of their teeth and are keen to keep them as healthy as possible for their whole lives. Straight teeth are much easier to keep clean.

SmileLux is a Specialist Orthodontic Centre in Milton Keynes. We see patients of all ages and our Specialist Orthodontist, Dr Sunil Hirani is trained to Hospital Consultant level and is used to transforming all types of smiles, from the most simple amount of movement to the most complex!

If you are looking to improve your smile, contact a member of the SmileLux team on 01908 398068 today and we will be delighted to help.

“To the team, Thank you for all the hard work over the last 2 years and my new smile”

This lovely patient had ceramic braces to correct her crowded front teeth and to close her anterior open bite (when the front teeth do not close when biting). This type of bite can affect someone’s ability to bite into and chew food properly. People have orthodontic treatment for, not only cosmetic improvement, but also for function. If you have an issue with your bite that is causing you problems when eating, contact us today. We provide orthodontic treatment in Milton Keynes and have a range of both traditional and discreet brace options available.
