Realigning teeth has evolved with Invisalign, removable aligner treatment that uses technology to design and construct your new smile. As you replace each aligner your teeth move - little by little, week by week -until they have straightened to the final position we have prescribed.
We are conveniently located in Clifton, Bristol and our stunning purpose built private referral practice allows for all of our treatments to be conveniently carried out under one roof.

There are many different types of orthodontic treatment - braces today come in many different shapes, materials and sizes. In general, no brace is predictably quicker. Each has advantages and disadvantages to consider. The best treatment for you depends on your desired outcome and the orthodontic challenges you may have. It is also common to have choices over WHAT we can treat as well as HOW. To get a professional opinion from a specialist Orthodontist, you can book a FREE initial smile assessment where we will discuss a personalised treatment plan and explain more about how we can help.
In the meantime, you can learn more about some of the most common orthodontic treatment appliance options here...
Lingual braces are the most discreet method of straightening teeth as they are fitted to the back of your teeth. Lingual braces are therefore largely invisible to the outside world and can be used to treat a wide variety of orthodontic problems, some of which can’t be corrected by clear aligners.
Invisalign allows you to transform your smile discreetly and comfortably using a series of virtually invisible custom-made aligners to gradually straighten your teeth without the need for metal wires or brackets. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth and is worn for 7-10 days at a time for between 20-22 hours a day. They are conveniently removed for meals and cleaning your teeth.
Tooth coloured ceramic braces are the clear alternative to conventional metal braces. Each bracket is made from a single clear sapphire crystal, which has been grown, heat treated and polished to make it extra smooth and translucent. Sapphire is second only to diamond in strength, which makes ceramic braces very tough.
Although not as popular as some of the less obvious alternatives, metal braces are still very popular and highly effective. They are less expensive than ceramic or custom metal brackets and are comfortable to wear, they are a great option for children as they can be customised with different colours making them fun to wear!
"Treatment actually made me like myself more, and that is invaluable. I'm about to hit 50 and I get complimented on my teeth. My teeth!! I'll take that."
"Welcoming, organised and efficient, these three words describe Dr Hills. What could have been a nerve-wracking experience was swift and pain-free. Dr Hills ensured that I understood my orthodontic treatment plan, which meant that I was fully-informed every step of the way."
