I had been interested in getting Invisalign braces for sometime. A friend recommended Adult Braces London and I went to see them for an assessment. I went ahead with the treatment and I’m delighted with the results and with a very reasonable price that I paid.
I had stopped wearing retainers after a previous tooth straightening. The staff were very kind and did not tell me off! The work I have had done so far has been excellent and I am looking forward to a new more confident smile in a shorter time than with traditional braces!
I go for regular tray changes for my Invisalignat Adult Braces and my teeth are much betternow! I would definitely recommend them. I have a customer facing job and love the fact that the braces are virtually invisible.
I wanted to have correction of my top teeth that had an overbite. I was told that Adult Braces Clinic could help. They have helped me, and made a customised Invisalign system that I am really pleased with, and a good price too.
I have had crooked teeth since I was a child. I went to Adult Braces for advice and help. I have decided that I will go ahead with Invisalign invisible braces, very soon and am pleased at the relatively short time it will take.
I was suffering teeth that had moved back after I stopped wearing my retainer. The dentists at Adult Braces Clinic took a lot of time helping me and I am now having treatment to help me on my way to a great smile.
