Amazing result from Dr Hirani using lingual braces

Monday, March 16th, 2020
“I am so pleased with the results. My teeth are absolutely perfect. The whole team have been brilliant throughout the journey. From the warm welcomes to the explanation of the process and timeframes. This may sound odd to many people, but my visits to the dentist have been a delightful experience! Thank you once again.”

Fantastic new smile with Ceramic braces

Monday, March 9th, 2020
“It’s quite surreal. Braces (and the SmileLux team) have been a part of my life for the past three years. It took me weeks, months, maybe even years deliberating whether the appearance of my teeth was worthy of an investment. After extensive research into treatment and practices I was blown away by my initial consultation at SmileLux. I’ve never felt so welcomed and at ease at a dentist. SmileLux was simply a world apart from previous experiences. My orthodontic journey hasn’t all been easy, but at every turn Dr Hirani was reassuring, taking time to explain the processes and options available (from wisdom teeth extractions to 3D scans). I’d like to thank Dr Hirani and his team for all the work, time and effort they have given me. They have provided an exceptional service. The level of professionalism and expertise was second to none and their attentive and friendly approach was clear as day. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend SmileLux to others. I couldn’t ask for a better result – A smile worth smiling about!”

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

Dr Sunil Hirani passes WSLO exam (World Society of Lingual Orthodontics)

Dr Sunil Hirani passing WSLO exam July 2019 photo

Huge congratulations to our specialist orthodontist Dr Sunil Hirani for recently passing his World Society of Lingual Orthodontics (WSLO) exam.

Dr Hirani has been busy preparing for this prestigious qualification. The majority of specialists sitting the examination have practised lingual orthodontics for a minimum of 10 years.

We are extremely proud that Dr Hirani has achieved this accreditation.  He is currently the only consultant-trained specialist orthodontist in the UK to hold this qualification. An expert panel of lingual examiners from around the world assessed his cases, considering difficulty, standard of records, treatment planning skills, efficiency of treatment, outcome, cephalometric tracings and post-treatment stability. As of 2019, only 246 individuals have passed this exam worldwide so it’s a huge achievement.

The examination took place at the 8th WSLO Congress in Barcelona, Spain.  Dr Hirani was also an invited speaker and gave a presentation on Lingual lever arm mechanics and the current evidence.  This was extremely well received.

Lingual braces are braces that are fixed to the back of your teeth so they are very discreet and almost invisible.  We are very fortunate that we are able to offer this treatment to our patients here at SmileLux under the skilled and expert guidance of Dr Hirani. Dr Hirani is also the chairman of the British Lingual Orthodontic Society (BLOS).

If you would like to find out more about lingual brace treatment please contact SmileLux on 01908 398068.

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.

“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. Contact a member of the SmileLux team on 01908 398068 to find out more about how we can help.

A great result with Invisalign and a lovely testimonial

“From the very first moment I stepped into the practice I knew this was the place for me. Laura, in particular, was always so pleasant and empathetic and seemed genuinely pleased to see me. The practice is very attractive and I particularly liked the fact that appointments are arranged so that there is only ever 1 after person in the waiting area, if anyone there at all. Dr Hirani is very approachable and puts you at ease immediately. His attention to detail is amazing and he clearly wants the very best for his patients. He talks through all the procedures reassuring you about what is happening and what to expect post treatment. I spent almost 3 years having treatment and felt I had become part of this very slick team. This is a truly professional practice whose sole aim is to ensure that at the end of your treatment you are left smiling!”
