Orthodontics is the art of teeth alignment. To close gaps, to straighten crowded adult teeth, to align teeth after they have shifted after braces (We call this relapse) e.g “Gaps between teeth”


What are we talking about when we say we have gaps between the teeth?

Teeth that are not perfectly in line and touching each other, either due to genetics, dental problems or tooth loss. It’s the opposite of dental crowding, where teeth overlap and are crooked. For some people, including celebrities such as Madonna and Lara Stone, gaps are part of their character. For others, multiple gaps can look unsightly and alter the facial symmetry.

What are the choices when I look for orthodontics to close my gaps?

Simply put, you can either add to the teeth, filling in gaps, or push teeth together, closing gaps. To fill in gaps, you can use tooth-coloured cosmetic fillings, bridges, veneers or dental implants. For closing gaps, there’s a choice of braces: the Inman® ‘Speed Brace’, which treats the front teeth only, Invisalign® ‘Invisible Braces’ or fixed braces, both of which treat full arches, and other, custom-made clear aligners, which can treat individual teeth. On occasion, teeth can be moved using a brace to create space for an implant.


Can I see the predicted result when I visit an orthodontist or dentist asking for orthodontics?

In most cases, yes. This can be done by mocking up wax teeth on a model of the patient’s teeth, which can then be tried in the mouth. Teeth can also be built up using white or tooth-coloured fillings which can be chipped off if the patient isn’t happy. With Invisalign®, a DVD simulation shows the likely tooth movements while with Inman®, a model cast is made.

What does orthodontics involve when I want a gap filled?

With braces, impressions are taken (Or a scan if the surgery has the technology) and then the brace or clear aligners are custom-made to fit perfectly over the teeth, applying gentle, precise pressure to move teeth.

How long do they last?

With veneers, bridges and crowns, it largely depends on how well you look after them, but 10-15 years is a ballpark. Implants should last 15-25+ years. Teeth that have been moved using a brace can move back if a retainer isn’t worn as directed after treatment.


Any downsides?

I always approach gaps with caution and develop treatment plans based on the level of health gain. I always favour minimally invasive techniques, but sometimes these may not be sufficient to achieve the desired outcome, although for most patients the upsides far outweigh any downsides.

Typical costs?

White fillings from £85; Veneers from £500 per tooth; Bridges from £300 per unit, but it depends on the number of teeth; Crowns from £300 per tooth; Inman® £1,500 per arch; Invisalign® from £3,500 for both arches. As ever, go for trust and experience not cost.https://thewhytehouse.com/dental-treatment-fee-exeter/

Adult Braces near me: What’s the story?

‘Adult Braces near me’ Do you want to straighten upper and/or lower arches, using new technology combined with traditional techniques to apply gentle forces, thereby reducing treatment times and discomfort?

They’re also less visible because the wires are tooth-coloured and the brackets are clear rather than metal. They’re permanently fixed during treatment, so don’t need to be removed at night or when cleaning your teeth or eating.

Adult Braces Near ME

How ‘invisible’ are they?

Although they’re not quite as ‘invisible’ as Invisalign® ‘Invisible Braces’ , they are far less visible than traditional metal ‘train track’ braces, as the wires are white rather than silver and the brackets are transparent rather than metal.

Can I straighten just one arch?

Yes, but sometimes this isn’t possible – a full assessment is needed to see if this would be safe and suitable in your case.

Will I need extractions?

Not always, but it very much depends on how crowded your teeth are to begin with. If required, there is an additional charge for extractions.

Is it safe?

Yes. However, like treatment with any fixed appliance, there’s a small degree of potential risk. Root resorption is the main risk – occasionally, the roots of the teeth may shorten very slightly (by about 1 mm), although this doesn’t tend to cause any long-term problems in an otherwise healthy mouth.

How long will treatment take?

Treatment times can vary from 6-12 months (with no extractions) to 12-18 months (if extractions are required). Your full cooperation will result in treatment being completed in the shortest possible time.

However, missed appointments, broken or damaged braces or failure to maintain good oral hygiene may prolong treatment, or even lead to the brace being removed early, leaving the treatment unfinished. At the end of treatment, you will need to wear a retainer to hold your teeth in their new position and minimise the risk of relapse.

How much does it cost?

Please see our price list .https://thewhytehouse.com/dental-treatment-fee-exeter/If required, there is an extra charge for extractions and/or a fixed bar retainer. Extra charges will also be incurred if you fail to look after your braces and the wires or brackets become bent or broken.

Inman Aligner. There’s no simpler way to boost your looks than to smile. A great smile makes you look and feel healthier and happier and can take the edge off awkward or stressful moments. It’s easy, and it not only benefits us, it also makes others feel at ease. It all sounds so easy, and it should be, but sadly I meet many people who just don’t feel able to smile. They may have spent years trying to hide crowded, crooked or protruding teeth, shielding them with their hands or offering a sad, closed-mouth smile when they really want to laugh out loud with joy. And it’s not just a question of aesthetics. Crooked and crowded teeth can affect the way we eat and even the way we talk.Inman Aligner

Straight teeth are easier to keep clean, meaning healthier gums, less decay – and best of all, less tooth loss. Until recently the only way to achieve straight teeth and a healthy smile was using fixed ’train track’ braces. But there are alternatives. One of the most effective is the innovative inman™ speed Brace.

Inman Aligner

The brace uses gentle but constant pressure to simply push in top and bottom front teeth that are sticking out and push out those that are set back. You do need to wear the brace at all times (apart from when you’re eating), and typically the effects can be seen from six to 16 weeks.


However, in many cases the results can be rapid: Inman has often helped put the first real smile on people’s faces in just two weeks! An inman-certified dentist can asses whether the speed brace is right for you. You should expect a full examination after which they will tell you how long the treatment should take, and can even show you a model of how your teeth will look when the work is completed. We have hunderds of patients thrilled by the results achieved with the Inman Aligner. https://thewhytehouse.com/testimonials/Inman AlignerYou will also be given an indication of cost; the Inman™ Speed Brace is generally less expensive than traditional or invisible braces. However, this really does depend on the scale and complexity of each case. Before you start treatment, get confirmation of the cost in writing. More importantly, make sure you feel comfortable about the work – and don’t worry about asking too many questions; you need to trust your dentist and feel you are in experienced hands.
