Dreaming of Straighter Teeth? At Stella Maris Dental, we can help get your confidence back by correcting your crooked or gappy teeth.
Many adults believe nothing can be done for them to be able to achieve straight teeth: they are wrong. There are many adult orthodontic solutions now available, all at an affordable price.
Friendly, effective treatment to stop you feeling insecure.
As we offer a range of different teeth straightening treatments, there will be a solution to suit you.
Our dentists offer a no obligation consultation to make sure you are provided with the best possible treatment, to discuss the results that you would like and what is achievable.
After receiving any teeth straightening treatment, we strongly advise you wear a retainer. This will keep your teeth in their desired position and prevent them from returning to their original position.

Looking for an effective, removable brace for your teeth? The Inman Aligner is a specifically designed removable brace that aligns teeth quickly and effectively.
We also offer traditional fixed ‘train track’ braces for children with overcrowding, protrusion or overlapping of the teeth.
These cases are referred to Dr. Ashley Davenport.
How long fixed brace treatment will take can depend on the following:
How crooked the teeth are. The more complicated the problem, the longer the treatment is likely to take; for example: teeth that have failed to grow into the mouth properly can take up to two years to straighten.
The type of brace. Fixed brace treatment on average will take up to 18 months compared with a removable brace treatment, which typically takes from 6-9 months.
Care of the appliance. Repeated breakages and poor cleaning of the brace will significantly delay treatment time.
The fitting of the brace is not painful. You may experience a degree of discomfort, from both the teeth and inside of the cheeks for a few days following the initial placement of the brace and subsequent adjustments.
Once the brace (fixed or removable) has been fitted, visits to the orthodontist at 4-6 week intervals will be needed in order to monitor progress and have the brace adjusted. It is very important to continue regular dental health checks with a dentist to ensure that the teeth and gums remain in the very best condition throughout the treatment.
It is essential to ensure that both the teeth and the brace are kept as clean as possible. The orthodontist, dentist or hygienist will advise about the use of any special toothpastes, brushes or mouth rinses to help keep your mouth as healthy as possible during your orthodontic treatment.
