Tooth Straightening and Orthodontics
If you are reluctant to talk or smile in public without hiding your teeth due to noticeably crooked, crowded or protruding teeth, then your McInerney dentist may consider whether tooth straightening could give you back some social confidence. Straighter teeth may also help you improve your gum health and cleaning by simplifying your cleaning routine.
The popularity of discreet adult teeth alignment treatments are growing rapidly, largely because they improve self confidence during and after treatment in patients who are unhappy with their appearance.
We offer a range of orthodontic treatments to reposition misaligned, twisted or crooked teeth. We know when to refer to a Specialist orthodontist as some cases require more complex work, but you can be assured you will always be presented with your full options and have time to talk through what it is you want to achieve. At McInerney Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry, all advice is bespoke to you.
Many of our patients choose almost invisible brace systems such as Invisalign. These systems are a discreet alternative to fixed wires and brackets and this natural looking approach fits with the McInerney Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry ethos of natural looking dental treatment. They are removable for eating and cleaning, which keeps life simple, and you don’t need many appointments to complete treatment so life can carry on as normal with little down time at the dentist’s.
How will I know if the Invisalign result is what I want?
With our Invisalign treatments you can see a movie of how the treatment is likely to progress, also showing you a simulation of the likely final result. We email a copy of this to you to view in the privacy of your own home, after the McInerney dentist has talked you through the movie one-on-one and you’ve had time to ask questions.
How will I know the cost of my Invisalign treatment?
At McInerney Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry we keep pricing simple and can tell you which level of investment you need to make based on how many Invisalign aligners you will need- this is easily calculated from the treatment movie. We can often give you an idea of likely level when we meet you for a Complimentary Consultation. While Invisalign is available for under £1000, very few patients fall into this level of care so we prefer to quote you on a bespoke basis so you have accurate information on which to base important decisions. At McInerney Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry we also tell you upfront if you need a contingency fund, what that might be for, and what we think you will need to budget for on an ongoing maintenance basis (for retainers).
Are Invisalign braces hygienic?
With Invisalign and other removable braces you can remove the braces so your daily cleaning routine is not complicated by your decision to straighten your teeth. You also remove the braces for eating which makes cleaning your brace much easier too!
My job involves meeting and facing customers all day long. Will people know I have braces on?
In a social situation or conversation it would be very difficult indeed to spot somebody wearing our Invisalign braces. Many celebrities on TV choose invisalign for this reason.
Many McInerney Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry patients work in customer-facing roles, have high profiles, or travel with their work, and these patients find the Invisalign brace system compatible with this lifestyle. Furthermore, our appointments can be scheduled on Saturdays or evenings so no time is required away from work.
Teeth come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. If you feel yours are abnormally shaped or uneven, you might find tooth re-contouring treatment is the answer.
Tooth re-contouring can correct small irregularities by reshaping and smoothing tooth edges. Subtle changes can make a big difference. Our experienced dentists use selective re-shaping to improve your smile.
Re-contouring alone is only suitable for making minor changes. We often use it as a complimentary procedure when doing more advanced dental work. This attention to detail makes it possible to deliver an exceptionally high quality finish.

Re-aligning teeth using veneers can make a real difference to your smile.
We use veneers to cover the surface of existing healthy and restored teeth to improve their colour, shape and position.
If your teeth are irregularly sized, discoloured or uneven, veneers can be the answer. Veneers are also a neat way to correct a recessed or undersized tooth, or create a perfect natural smile.
Veneers Case Study
We use a variety of materials to make perfectly coloured and shaped veneers unique to each patient. Fitting them is simple and straightforward using strong bonding adhesive.
Our skilled dentists will make natural looking veneers that give you comfortable and lasting results.
…perfectly coloured and shaped veneers unique to each patient.
These are thin slivers of porcelain, which are permanently bonded to the front surface of the teeth. Veneers can be used to change the shape, size and colour of the teeth with little or no need for tooth filing involved. Veneers can look really beautiful and natural and last for 10-15 years.
We can also make veneers and laminates in composite resin, a process which is known as composite bonding or Direct Veneers. This is usually completed in one visit and will transform your smile instantly. This material doesn’t last as long as porcelain but will look good for 6-8 years.
We are a recognised practice for the Edelweiss System. For more information on this type of direct veneer please follow this link. Edelweiss Dentistry.
Diagnostic Wax-ups and Clinical Model Previews
This is a vital part of our practice. We produce these when we do any extensive cosmetic work relating to veneers, crowns, implants and dentures.
We make plaster models of the patients mouth and produce wax models from them to show a proposal of the final result. This takes into account such things as their smile line, lip line and ideal position of teeth. Individual characteristics can be added at this stage such as crowding.
From the preview the patient is in a strong position to visualise and approve the proposed final result. It also means we can produce plastic guides and aesthetic temporary crowns and veneers before we prepare teeth and place implants.
New German Sirona Technology just arrived in the practice means we can show images in 3D and on a monitor screen in the surgery.
