Teeth Straightening

Stunning straight teeth in Dunstable

If you have crooked, protruding or overcrowded teeth, you may think that there is nothing you can do about it.

Teeth straightening for has changed so much in recent years. Wearing braces is no longer just for teenagers; now plenty of adults are taking the opportunity to update the look of their teeth with braces that are far more discreet, comfortable and affordable than ever before.

At Dunstable Dental Practice, we straighten teeth using two different forms of clear, invisible braces.

Clear braces won’t just straighten teeth, they can also:

  • Close gaps between your teeth
  • Move protruding teeth
  • Spacing out overcrowded teeth
  • Correcting bite problems

We have treated hundreds of adults from Dunstable, Totternhoe, Houghton Regis, Sewell and throughout Bedfordshire for teeth straightening and all have been delighted with the results.  Book a consultation to find out more.

Which teeth straightening treatments are available at Dunstable Dental Practice?

At Dunstable Dental Practice we use two types of clear braces which are so discreet, most people will not realise that you’re even having your teeth straightened.


Invisalign is made up of a series of custom-made clear aligners which sit over the top of your teeth. They are removable braces, and you take them out to eat, drink and to brush your teeth.

When you choose to have your teeth straightened with Invisalign, your teeth will be scanned using the revolutionary iTero scanner.

This produces digital 3D images to show how your teeth look now and how they will move and change until the finished result with straight teeth at the end of treatment. It means, you get to see how your new straight teeth look before you even start treatment!

You wear your Invisalign aligners for a prescribed amount of time – usually one week before you move on to the next set of aligners in the series. Each set has a tiny difference from the previous, allowing for the small movement in your teeth as they are straightened.

Finish wearing your aligners until you reach the final set in the series and your teeth have reached their final destination.


SureSmile is a similar form of teeth straightening to Invisalign. They also use a series of clear aligners which are worn and changed on a regular basis until your teeth reach their ultimate position.

When you get your teeth straightened with SureSmile, you’ll also receive the SureSmile VPro. This small device is inserted into your mouth every day and produces small vibrations which ensure that your aligners are fitting tightly against your teeth.

At your initial consultation, you can discuss which teeth straightening method is best for you.

Benefits of teeth straightening in Dunstable

Patients from Totternhoe, Sewell, Houghton Regis and throughout Bedfordshire are choosing teeth straightening because:


  • Teeth straightening is a much more discreet process using invisible braces. With no metal brackets or wires, teeth straightening is more comfortable too
  • Invisalign and SureSmile use removable braces which are more hygienic and give you more flexibility with eating. Wearing removable braces also make it easier to play certain contact sports and to play musical instruments too
  • Straight teeth will give you a stunning new smile and will boost your self esteem
  • Straight teeth are easier to keep clean and free from plaque which means you are less likely to develop tooth decay or gum disease
  • Invisalign and SureSmile won’t just straighten teeth, they can help overcome other orthodontic issues including overcrowding and bite problems
  • Teeth straightening with Invisalign and SureSmile means less visits to see your dentist than traditional teeth straightening. You’ll receive several packs of aligners in advance and are only required to check in with your dentist occasionally

    FAQ's for Teeth Straightening

    Can I just get my top set of teeth straightened?

    Yes, you can. At your consultation, your dentist will assess your teeth and talk with you about what you would like to achieve with your smile. If you only want to straighten your top teeth, your treatment will consist of aligners just for your top jaw.

    Can I get my teeth straightened on the NHS?

    No, teeth straightening for adults is not available on the NHS because it is a cosmetic dental treatment and so you must pay to have them straightened privately. At Dunstable Dental Practice we offer 0% finance for up to 12 months, which helps make affordable teeth straightening.

    Is it too late for me to get my teeth straightened?

    This can only be answered by you, but we believe that it is never too late to invest in a beautiful smile. More adults are realising that just like your hair and skin, teeth can greatly affect your appearance. Since the introduction of invisible braces, we have seen more patients in their forties and fifties having their teeth straightened.

    My dentist Heena and her dental nurse Adriana always give me a professional experience and are pleasant and friendly. I’ve been seeing Heena for a fair number of years now and always feel comfortable and at ease . I’m not a fan of the hygienist cleaning due to sensitivity but let Heena do it and honestly it was quick and without drama. Would recommend her and her work

    I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Lynne at reception, who was very nice and polite when booking the appointment over the phone. She is very patience and calm to understand both the patients and dentists availability to accommodate. It's a great customer service I experienced and would like to wish her all the very best! Great Job Ms. Lynne! All the very best for your future endeavours!
    I hate the dentist. I'm a very nervous patient. But the staff at Dunstable Dental Practice are so lovely it makes it a bearable experience! Reception staff are lovely, friendly & efficient. The Dentists are reassuring and professional as well as friendly.Thoroughly recommend
    I went to Dental Practice Dunstable for a check up and needed two fillings. Dr Heena was very kind and gave me an emergency appointment after I've told her that I work in school and the only time I can take an appointment is in holidays.Dr Heena and Adriana were very friendly and talked to me all the time during my procedure.

    Embarrassed to admit I don’t know the name of the hygienist I saw today and it’s not on my appointment email reminder, but she was lovely, really professional. I had the scale & polish with a different hygienist a few years ago before teeth whitening & I was honestly dreading going in today but it wasn’t an ordeal at all. She was really helpful & I will definitely not be worried about my next appointment, thanks so much

    I have been coming to this Dentist for many years , at the weekend I got a chip in my back tooth , so called on Monday and got an appointment straight away , had it checked and X-rays and booked in again next day to see what treatment needed , lucky for me only a small chip so was able to have a filling . I was so pleased Mr Bukhari and the dental nurse was so calming and made me at ease very quickly as I was very anxious about my tooth and what would happen , the staff friendly and welcoming Great Dentist see you again soon Thank you

    I had an appointment with Heena and Anaïs to have a severely broken tooth extracted. I was very wary that this may not be able to be done at the surgery. Heena assured me that she would be able to complete this procedure. Heena managed to get all of the tooth out (in 2 or 3 pieces) successfully and without any excess pain. All throughout I was asked if I was ok and not feeling pain or uncomfort.I would like to recommend this dental surgery and especially Heena and her assistant for a very professional approach.Thank you. You are Great 👍

    Amazing dental practice starting from the ladies at the reception who really make you feel welcomed and then every other member of the staff like dental assistants who are very friendly and professional.I have to specially mention Adam who has been amazing from the first day, very professional and very reassuring. Considering that my level of anxiety while at the dentist is very high, every member of the staff has offered reassurance and they always made me feel more calm.Absolutely everything and everyone in this place is outstanding!! As I am leaving the country soon, I wish I could take you all back to Spain with me.Thank you guys. You are amazing!

    Went in to get my cavities sorted out. Got my appointment through Dano, who was very helpful and considarate. Up on my visit, I was greeted and well welcomed by a pleasant and charming reception team. Moreover, the dentist Mrs Prem was very gentle and reassuring, making sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure. I needed some drilling and fillings she did everything thoroughly while ensuring I was calm and comfortable during the whole procedure. In the end, she gave valuable insights on how to take care of dental health. It was really a good experience, I will recommend them to everyone
