CLEAR BRACES

Before
After

This young man did not realise for some time that his fixed bonded retainer had broken. So his teeth had started to drift back to their original position.

We constructed Clear Braces to return his teeth to the desired position and fitted a fixed bonded retainer and also an Essix retainer (this looks like a Clear Brace and after an initial period is worn just at night) to prevent drifting in the future.

Bellevue Dental Practice: very friendly and professional, they have worked wonders on my teeth, very high standard, very appreciated. Thank you

I was always treated with great respect and gentleness at the age of 68 .I am very pleased with the work and would highly recommend to anyone who is considering this treatment.

Patient Review

Thank you so much Mrs Gardiner, Amanda and Dawn for your support and encouragement throughout my treatment.

I am a 'mature' lady of 71 and have put up with crooked teeth since my teenage years. I was uncertain whether it was worthwhile for me to undertake the corrective work to my upper front teeth but I have to say am delighted in my new appearance and now have a new more confident smile.

I shall look after it !

Thank you all so much.

Thanks.

Inman Aligner, Veneers and tooth Whitening.

Before

The presence of discolouration and protrusion of the front teeth caused dissatisfaction with her appearance.

The first stage in her treatment was the use of an Inman Aligner to correct the angulation of the upper front teeth.

After

After this the teeth were whitened and the two front (discoloured) teeth were covered with porcelain veneers.

This picture shows a bonded, fixed retainer. We routinely use these after orthodontic treatment to prevent the teeth drifting back to their original position.

Aligning the Teeth Using an Inman Aligner With Expander, Clear Braces Andtooth Whitening With Tooth Contouring.

Before

This lady wanted to eliminate the crowding in her upper front teeth using removable braces.

Firstly we expanded the arch using a 3D expander; this stage took approximately 8 – 10 weeks.

After

This photograph also shows composite filling material applied temporarily to secure and prevent slippage of the Inman Aligner

Final stage reached after use of an Inman Aligner for about 16 weeks followed by whitening and tooth contouring.

Patient Review

Can I first say thank you to Mrs. Gardiner, Amanda and Dawn with all their care in accommodating me and my busy schedule.

My previous orthodontic dentist told me that I would have to wear a fixed brace for up to 5 years to straighten my teeth, as they were so crowded.

In under a year, thanks to Mrs. Gardiner, I now have great looking teeth. With the use of Inman Aligners for just over 6 months. It was half of what I would have paid for fixed braces.

I am so thrilled with how my teeth look and would recommend this system to anyone thinking of having their teeth straightened.

I now look forward to having the bottom set done in the near future.

Inman Aligner with Expander Screw, Clear Braces and Tooth Whitening

Before

This young gentleman did like his upper right lateral incisor which was out of line with rest of his arch.

After

After wearing a couple of Clear Braces the we inserted a fixed bonded retainer to prevent the teeth drifting back to their old position.

The final step was a course of tooth whitening.

Patient Review

Thank you to Ms Gardiner, Dawn and Amanda

When I first came in to see Ms .Gardiner and her team I was someone who had always been very conscious of her mouth and teeth. I had become accustomed to hiding my teeth as much as possible when laughing, speaking and smiling and because I had done so all my life I knew I would love to change them, but I almost wasn't aware of just how much this affected my confidence.

I chose Ms Gardiner because of the practice's reputation but also due to my first port of call, the website, being professional and informative.

Due to me being absolutely adamant I did not want a fixed brace - at 22 years old I did not want 'train tracks' when meeting clients for work, meeting my friends in social situations etc - Ms Gardiner recommended the 'Clearstep' Brace as an alternative.

The Clear Brace process is quite slow, but it does mean that you can straighten your teeth without anyone you don't want to know being aware. I wore my aligners as much as I possibly could, and with no Impairment-to speech and 'only slight visibility when worn, this was reasonably easy to do. I won't-lie-and say that cleaning your teeth four or five times a day isn't slightly inconvenient (!) but this is the only real issue with wearing them.

Then ...disaster struck!! Clearstep went into administration just as I was about to go into my last section of the treatment. I was devastated, and to be honest I assumed there would be nothing Mrs Gardiner could do and that I would have to start another course of treatment in order to finish.

I was wrong though. Ms Gardiner put together a list of the options we had, keeping the emphasis on the 'we' to make sure I knew that we were in the situation as a team and that she wouldn't abandon me mid-treatment (as dramatic as that sounds its true!). It became apparent that if I wanted to finish my treatment quickly and efficiently that the Inman Aligner was the way to go. I fought it at first – the Inman Aligner is not invisible and it does affect your speech - however this was the best decision we made! It is so fast you can see and feel your teeth moving by the day, sometimes in a couple of hours, and it makes any discomfort and slight embarrassment worth it because you see such quick results!

The only problem ClearStep going into administration caused was a slight delay in my treatment.

Thanks to Ms Gardiner, Dawn and Amanda I have ended up with the result I wanted and I was looked after right the way through. I am now the very proud owner of a lovely, straight white smile and now realise just how much it impaired my life before not having that confidence. I would recommend Bellevue Practice every time as a practice that cares about you and the results you have.

Clear Braces, Veneers and Tooth Whitening

Before

This young lady did not like her front teeth which had slight crowding causing some of her teeth to be out of the line of the arch. She was also concerned that her front teeth were too large.

Firstly she wore some clear braces. This was followed by whitening of her upper and lower teeth. Porcelain E-max veneers were constructed to on the front four teeth to re-proportion them.

After

A bonded retainer was cemented to keep the front teeth in place.

Patient Review

For many years I had lived with slightly crooked upper front teeth along with a slightly off white smile. My treatment at Bellevue Dental Practice consisted of wearing a clear aligner brace and then four veneers. I also had my teeth whitened.

The results of my treatment have been amazing. I am over joyed that the team at Bellevue have achieved the perfect smile I have always wanted. My new smile has improved my confidence and I can definitely recommend Bellevue to anyone who is thinking of having any dental treatment… even if just a check up!

The team at Bellevue are very kind, caring and compassionate. I can not thank Mrs Gardiner, Amanda and Dawn enough for making my dream come true.

Thank you all for your hard work and support.

Inman Aligner With Screw, Clear Braces and Tooth Whitening

Before
After

This young man had severe crowding of the front upper teeth. We initially used an Inman Aligner incorporating a Screw to expand the arch. Once the re-alignment was virtually completed we used a few clear braces to refine it before tooth whitening. A further improvement in this case could be gained by lengthening the lateral incisors (with edge bonding) and the patient is considering this..

Patient Review

Very pleased with the end result, thank you very much to Mrs Gardiner, Amanda and Dawn for everything, a great team. See you again in the future

Inman Aligner with Screw, Clear Braces, Tooth Whitening and Veneers

Before
After

This young lady did not like her front teeth as they were crowded and the enamel was discolored and pitted.

She wore an Inman Aligner with a screw which she wore for approximately 10 weeks followed by some clear braces.

We carried out tooth whitening whilst the clear braces were being worn. Finally we placed veneers on her front four teeth to re-proportion and cover the pitting.

Finally we placed a fixed bonded retainer to the back of the teeth to ensure that they would not move.

Patient Review

After having both the Inman Aligner and veneers for my front 4 teeth, I couldn't be happier with the results. I would thoroughly recommend Bellevue and I have always been made to feel very welcome and reassured at all times.

Definitely one of the best decisions I have made and I am very happy with my new smile.

Inman Aligner, Teeth Whitening and Veneers

Before

We decided to straighten the crowded front four teeth using an Inman Aligner.

After

After 14 weeks of wearing the Inman Aligner the teeth are straightened but the years of crowding have caused an uneven wear on the biting surfaces.

The teeth were then whitened and the uneven appearance corrected by constructing E-max porcelain veneers on the front four teeth. The veneers were carefully colour matched to the whitened teeth.

Inman Aligner, Tooth Whitener and Composite Bonding

Before

In this case the Upper left 1 was very prominent.

After

The teeth were straightened using an Inman Aligner in 6 weeks followed by 2 clear braces.

The teeth were then lightened using tooth whitening and composite filling was bonded onto the edges of the teeth.

Patient Review

The service received at Bellevue was fantastic.

Mrs Gardiner, Amanda and Dawn were all fantastic people and I felt very confident with them.

I am very pleased with my teeth and now have the confidence to smile all the time.

Inman Aligner

Before

This young girl felt that her front teeth were not pleasantly aligned. The poor alignment was due to crowding.

After

Correcting the crowding with an Inman Aligner took about 10 weeks.

The irregular edge is often seen after re-alignment and is easily corrected using composite which is matched to the tooth colour after whitening.

However due to regulations we could not use whitening until she reaches 18 years of age and so have delayed the bonding of composite until we can carry this out.

Patient Review

My Daughter had an Inman Aligner fitted and we are both more than happy with the results attained. Everything was always fully explained throughout and the whole experience was excellent.

Thank you
