Our orthodontist Liverpool helps patients learn what the extraordinary benefits are to having straighter teeth. When asked, most patients are quick to point out that having straighter teeth helps you to a better-looking smile, however the real benefits to orthodontic treatment go much deeper than that.


Once patients find out how orthodontic treatment can improve their smiles, and in so doing, their oral health, their next concern has to do with what teeth-correcting device they would have to embrace. Again, our orthodontist Liverpool will step in to discuss the merits of each orthodontic device that fits in with a patient’s needs and their goals. An ethical orthodontist Liverpool will place a patient’s best interests above all else and make recommendations that will best produce desired outcomes.

Smile-worthy benefits to orthodontic treatment

Many of the widely appreciated benefits to teeth-correcting treatments focus on improving dental health, but to some extent, physical and mental health as well. The following benefits of orthodontics may surprise you.

Properly-aligned teeth promote better digestion

Digestion problems may not be immediately linked to teeth spacing issues, but on many occasions this dental issue makes it difficult for a patient to chew food into smaller pieces. Properly chewed food is processed faster and more effectively by the stomach.

Clearer speech

The ability to speak clearly can do much to improve a person’s self-confidence in professional and social settings. Your speaking patterns can be adversely affected by teeth that are overcrowded or out of alignment.

Fewer teeth injuries

Crooked or protruding teeth are far more susceptible to fractures and injuries which is why orthodontic treatment is needed to protect them. In addition to greater protection from damage, teeth that are in alignment are kept healthier as they are easy to keep clean and food-free.

Reduced wear and tear on teeth

When only some teeth are used for chewing because of overcrowding and misalignment issues, this can exert undue pressure on these teeth and expose them to unnecessary wear and tear. Excessive wear and tear can generate many other undesirable problems such as visible marking at the gum line, tooth fractures and irregular flattening of the bite surface.

Helps in protecting the jawbone

A bad bite is another common cause of stress placed on the jawbone and jaw joints that results in discomfort, difficulties and pain. Other symptoms of this stress play out in headaches, dizziness and ringing in the ears. Once these bite issues are corrected with appropriate treatment, this stress is alleviated and the patient finds relief from related pain.

Improved self-esteem

The effects of positive self-esteem work like magic in transforming patients’ lives. Orthodontics benefit self-esteem by helping to improve dental appearance, giving patients the confidence to smile attractive heart-warming smiles. This confidence, in turn, is used to make new friends and gain employment or take advantage of job promotion opportunities.

One of the more exciting orthodontic developments to celebrate is the introduction of invisible braces that have made it convenient for adult patients to embrace orthodontics. Why not find out more in a consultation with our friendly dental practitioner at Liverpool Smile Studio?

Modern dentistry has made a wealth of options available to patients looking to perfect their smiles. Veneers Liverpool illustrate just one such option in a string of dental cosmetic treatments that include dental implants and dental crowns. Each cosmetic dental treatment available at Liverpool Smile Studio has its own list of plus points for patients to consider and decide which treatment would best suit their dental appearance goals.


As an aesthetics-focused dental treatment, veneers Liverpool are used to improve tooth appearance by masking imperfections such as discolouration, chips, cracks and irregularities in the shape and size of teeth. To correct these tooth appearance issues, an experienced dentist places a thin moulded material over the enamel and uses a specially-formulated bonding material to keep the dental cover in place. The experience and skills of a dental practitioner are required in knowing how to prepare the teeth receiving the dental veneers.

We take a look at why veneers Liverpool may be the most suitable treatment option for you.

Factors that promote veneers as a viable option

Tailor-made treatments

Each patient will require their own uniquely developed treatment plan that details the number of dental veneers to be used. These are specially prepared for each tooth receiving treatment to match the size and colour of neighbouring teeth.

Protective benefits

Dental veneers offer amazing protective benefits as they strengthen teeth against damage like fractures and cracks. An additional protective benefit is that the coverings alleviate the pressure placed on teeth during biting and chewing.

Offers a quick-fix solution to filling in relatively small gaps in teeth

Patients with slight gap issues in the dental arch may find that these slivers of material can resolve these issues quickly and effectively. The process to receive veneers is very simple with little to no preparation (depending on the patient’s situation) needed before the placing of them.

Hides a multitude of teeth defects

One of the attractions of dental veneers is their incredible versatility. A diverse number of aesthetic issues can be fixed with dental veneers: permanent stains, gaps, misshapen teeth and chipped and broken teeth.

Friendly on the gums

Unlike other dental treatments that may be harsh on other sensitive mouth structures such as the gums, there is relatively no discomfort to having veneers placed on teeth.

Strong and reliable

An ethical dental clinic such as Liverpool Smile Studio offers patients effective treatments in dental veneers using durable dental materials for long-term efficacy.

Easy maintenance

Patients do not need to fuss over their in-home oral hygiene practices to clean veneers. All that is needed are dentist-recommended cleaning practices such as brushing and flossing. Patients may be asked to pay attention to not using cleaning products with abrasive ingredients that may damage or detract from the aesthetic value of dental veneers. It is best to discuss suitable product brands with our dentist.

To achieve the look of perfect teeth relatively quickly, why not consider how veneers can help you attain your cosmetic dental goals. Our excellent dentist at Liverpool Smile Studio is happy to answer your questions and we look forward to helping you design a smile that will create the best impression of you.

All the patients who walk through the doors of our dental clinic desire one thing – a smile that would light up the world. And our dedicated well-skilled and highly trained cosmetic dentists at Liverpool Smile Studio aim to give them that. As part of our modern cosmetic dentistry service menu, we also offer exciting orthodontic options including clear or invisible Braces Liverpool.


Clear Braces Liverpool, like Invisalign, work in a similar way to that of traditional wires-and-brackets orthodontic devices but differ in the way they are designed and the materials used – key differences that account for the sought after benefits they offer. Both modern and traditional orthodontic devices work to move teeth gradually into a specified position; however, orthodontic aligners go beyond the typical restrictions linked to wire-and-bracket devices.

Top 5 plus points of Invisalign Braces Liverpool

Conveniently removable

The advantage of a patient removing the aligner trays themselves has revolutionised the world of orthodontics. This benefit is most appreciated in two important ways. Firstly, patients find their oral hygiene maintenance easier to carry out – no more twisting and turning to get the floss into hard-to-reach places. Patients are allowed to remove aligner trays to clean their teeth. This in turn leads to improved oral and overall physical health.

Secondly, food restrictions are removed – no more having to make personal sacrifices by not eating one’s favourite foods or the worry about the wires and brackets breaking. When it is time for a meal, the patient will simply remove the trays and pop them back in once they are finished.

The time allowed for the aligner trays to be removed is limited which is typically two to four hours a day. In order for this orthodontic system to produce results, the aligner trays need to be worn for the time recommended by our dentists.

Barely detectable

Not everyone wants to announce their orthodontic treatment to the whole wide world so the fact that clear braces are barely detectable is a welcomed one.

Custom-made for efficacy

Invisalign trays are specifically made to form fit each patient to effectively resolve their individual teeth and bite issues.


Compared to conventional orthodontic devices, plastic aligner trays have been found to offer more comfort to the patient as there are no metal wires and brackets to contend with.

The number of dental appointments is reduced

Patients with busy schedules will really appreciate the fact that an aligner-designed treatment plan will mean fewer visits to the dentist. The aligner trays incorporate advanced intuitive technology to allow them to automatically reposition teeth – no more manual manipulations of the wires and brackets at the hands of the dental practitioner. Patients will be given a number of aligner trays to use over the course of treatment.

Do you need to learn more about what invisible braces can do for your smile? Let our highly trained cosmetic dentists at Liverpool Smile Studio give you the smile you have always wanted. In addition to exciting new orthodontic devices to correct less-than-perfect smiles, our service menu focused on cosmetic dentistry includes professional in-clinic teeth whitening, veneers and dental implants.

If there is one thing we at Liverpool Smile Studio would like patients to understand it is that when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, desired results come at the hands of an experienced and well-trained Dentist Liverpool. Helping patients realise their dream smiles is our sole focus in the realm of dentistry, and so, it stands to reason that we have a high level of theoretical knowledge and practical know-how required to produce remarkable results.


For any patient looking for a cosmetic Dentist Liverpool, we find the following tips are particularly useful in distinguishing the right dental practitioner.

Handy tips to finding the best cosmetic Dentist Liverpool

Before you start compiling a list of possible dental practitioners to carry out a cosmetic dentistry procedure, it would be worth your while to think about the must-have qualities you would like the cosmetic dentist to possess. Identifying these beforehand will help you compare like for like. Once you have the list of criteria, you can then ask your social and professional circles for recommendations. Have a few dental practitioners on this recommended list to filter through. Once you have the list of names, it is merely a matter of looking for a few specifics on their website and then an in-person meeting at the dental clinic.

Here is what to look for and what to ask.

Look for credentials

This is always a good place to start. What qualifies a dental practitioner to provide you with the treatment or procedure you require? Are they exceptionally skilled and experienced? Do they belong to a professional dental body? It is easy to be swayed by great-looking photographs but you will want to know whether the dental practitioner you are considering is actually trained in a particular treatment first. If these are not easily found on their website, make it a point to phone or visit the dental clinic and ask about it.

Look for a gallery or before-and-after results page

Cosmetic dentists worth their weight in gold are proud to show off their handy work and so this step is a critical one for any patient looking to undergo cosmetic dental treatment.

Ask how they support anxious patients

This is a non-negotiable for any patient who experiences a bout of anxiety when visiting a dental clinic. A top dental practitioner would not hesitate to place patient care and comfort high on their list of top priorities. If there is more than one type of sedation dentistry available, take the time to discuss the pros and cons of each to determine which one is most suitable for you.

Ask yourself how comfortable do I feel with this dentist?

Has the said dentist put you at ease? Have they answered your questions and concerns? Or, did they talk down to you and refused to acknowledge your needs and wants?

Make Liverpool Smile Studio your preferred choice for all your cosmetic dentistry needs. We have well-trained dental practitioners to carry out a diverse range of cosmetic dentistry treatments and procedures from professional in-clinic teeth whitening to dental implants. Patients are offered a welcoming atmosphere where they can relax and a friendly and supportive dental team to reassure them.

New orthodontic treatments and techniques have paved the way for an Orthodontist Liverpool to offer patients more modern and exciting alternative devices to give perfect smiles.


Orthodontist Liverpool is best placed in the industry to assess those areas a patient wants to fix and the best means by which to do so. When it comes to creating designer-like smiles, a reputable Orthodontist Liverpool will work with a patient, factoring in their needs and goals, and suggest suitable effective treatments that target these needs. Some high in-demand orthodontic treatment plans are clear aligners or invisible braces.

Clear dental aligners essentials patients should consider

The choice of modern dental aligners over traditional orthodontic devices may seem a simple and clear one. Why not choose the barely detectable removable plastic trays over hard metal wire-and-brackets system? Yes, invisible aligners do offer a bouquet of highly desirable benefits but there are a few considerations a patient will have to factor in first before determining if this is the right orthodontic treatment plan for them.

Willingness to implement a strict oral cleaning plan

While the aligner trays are removable before eating, these still need to be kept hygienically clean to keep bacteria and germ free. The patient will also need to be scrupulously thorough in their oral hygiene practices. Teeth and gums need to be in optimal health for any orthodontic or cosmetic dental treatment to be effective.

Be self-disciplined

Patients who are able to take a self-disciplined approach to their orthodontic plan with invisible aligner trays will find more success. This is because aligner trays need to be put back into the mouth once a patient has finished eating or drinking and this is only allowed for two to four hours a day (depending on the dentist’s recommendations). Patients will have to ignore the temptation to lengthen this time allowed and forgetting to wear them will only be counterproductive to one’s goals of attaining a winning smile.

Adhere to all treatment plan and aftercare requirements

Outside of the dental clinic, patients are in control of how well their treatment plan works. It is in the patient’s own interest to follow all the orthodontist’s instructions such as when and how often to change aligner trays. Non-adherence to these instructions will adversely affect treatment plan results and may even prolong the duration of treatment.

Meals and drinks need to be scheduled for certain times

Not being able to eat and drink whenever one wants to is a challenge patients will need to consider. Your favourite hot beverage can only be consumed in the time allocated for the trays to be removed as these may stain, warp or damage the plastic material the trays are made of. Snacking at all hours is also not recommended.

The well-trained dental team at Liverpool Smile Studio are highly experienced in offering patients the benefits of the latest cosmetic dentistry treatments and techniques. Patients can choose from a wide range of exciting options such as the remarkable Invisalign braces, dental implants and aesthetically attractive veneers.


Versatile, durable, reliable aesthetically pleasing – the list of the advantages of Veneers Liverpool in cosmetic and restorative dentistry is an enviably long one. It is no wonder then that Veneers Liverpool make the list of our top cosmetic dental treatments to help patients fix a variety of issues that undermine attractive smiles. Patients appreciate the quick turnaround time as well as the simple and straightforward process involved in receiving Veneers Liverpool.  Dental veneers allow patients to change the colour of teeth, correct the shape of teeth and resolve imperfections such as chipped or cracks in teeth.

What to know when considering veneers

Teeth may need to be prepared

Some patients will need to have a bit of teeth enamel filed before they can have a dental shell placed over the tooth or teeth. This has to take place for bonding between dental shell and tooth can be secured.

Choice in colour and shape of the dental shell

Veneers are custom-made for each patient to better match natural teeth. Our cosmetic dentist will help patients select the right shade of white along with the correct tooth shape so that the receiving tooth or teeth looks a natural part of the mouth. When it comes to choosing the most favourable dental shell shape, our experienced cosmetic dentist will factor in a patient’s gender, age and face shape.

Worth the cost of treatment

By and large, veneers are considered a cosmetic dental treatment and patients will have to consider the cost involved.

Protects the receiving tooth

As these tooth-coloured shells are form-fitted over the tooth, it offers a form of protection against chipping or cracking and prevents these imperfections from worsening.

Veneers need to be cared for

Dental caps are highly durable and offer a relatively long life of service provided they are looked after as recommended by our dentist. Patients are advised against using their teeth to open bottle caps or for any other purpose other than eating food as these behaviours including teeth grinding can put the longevity of dental caps at risk.

Also, to protect their reformed smiles, patients are urged to commit to a dentist-recommended oral hygiene practice to ensure teeth and gum health.

Why we recommend tooth-coloured shells

Tooth-coloured shells can be used to correct a multitude of teeth flaws from misalignment and gaps to discoloured and chipped teeth.

Tooth-coloured shells are bonded to enamel so they are comfortable and are easy on the gums.

Depending on a patient’s situation, the process can take as little as two dental appointments.

Tooth-coloured shells require no additional maintenance – just take care of them like you do natural teeth.

Tooth decay


Our oral cavity contains a myriad of bacteria, this in itself is no reason to worry. Oral bacteria are part of our natural microbiome, which plays an important role in our health and wellbeing. These bacteria feed on the food remaining in our mouth, mostly on simple sugars. As a side-product of their metabolism some species in the oral microbiome produce and secrete organic acids. Western diets often contain a lot of sugar in the form of soft drinks, snacks and desserts, this can lead to oral bacterial overgrowth, which in turn results in increased organic acid production. Despite the small amounts secreted by the bacteria, these acids can enter into a chemical reaction with the mineral content of teeth, resulting in the dissolution of a part of the tooth’s mineral content. The saliva normally replenishes this through its mineral content. However, if due to poor oral health or high sugar intake these bacteria are allowed to overgrow, the rate at which the saliva replenishes the tooth’s mineral content will be lower than at which the organic acids dissolve the tooth’s calcium content. This can result in tooth decay. If you are looking for a dentist in Liverpool to treat tooth decay, contact our dentistry, the Liverpool Smile Studio and book an appointment.

When to see the doctor if you have tooth decay?

Initially tooth decay only affects the very surface of the tooth. At this stage you may notice a bright white patch on the surface of your tooth. This is one of the most important signs to look out for: it shows that the tooth decay has started, but it still only affects the surface. At this stage the process is reversible. You should take this as a sign to change oral health or dietary habits. Reducing your sugar intake and practicing good oral health by brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day and by using antibacterial mouthwash is crucial at this stage, as you can reverse the damage through small lifestyle changes.

If you notice a brown or black patch on your tooth, you should see a dentist immediately, as this is usually a sign of caries. There are other symptoms to look out for as well. A bad breath, tooth sensitivity or a toothache are also often a sign of tooth decay. If you would like to get treatment for tooth decay, contact our dentists in Liverpool at the Liverpool Smile Studio.

What are the complications of tooth decay?

If tooth decay is left untreated it can progress into more serious conditions, that in some rare cases may even be lethal. Tooth decay and the bacterial overgrowth can cause gum disease. If tooth decay or gum disease are left untreated they can eventually result in tooth loss. Tooth loss occurs when the decay affects and infects the pulp tissue. Untreated tooth decay can also result in a dental abscess. These in some rare cases if rupture can cause septic shock, which may even be lethal. If you are looking for a dentist in Liverpool to treat tooth decay, contact us, the Liverpool Smile Studio.

The history of orthodontics


Orthodontic conditions and the desire to treat them are both probably as old as humanity. Even archaeological samples dating back to 50,000 years have been shown to have crooked teeth! The development of early orthodontics started in the ancient times, however, it only really developed into its modern form in the past 200 years. Ancient Egyptian mummies have been found to have metal wires wrapped around their teeth, which were bound together with a material that was likely catgut – these are one of the earliest known forms of braces. The famous ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates, was one of the first scientists to describe irregularly growing teeth. Another author from the ancient world, Celsus from the Roman Empire, has advised his readers to position newly growing teeth into their appropriate position by exerting pressure on them regularly with fingers. During the 17th-20th centuries, orthodontics has undergone major developments. A great breakthrough was the discovery of dental adhesives, which allowed the braces with brackets we know today to be applied. If you are looking for an orthodontist in Liverpool, look no further: book an appointment with us, the Liverpool Smile Studio now!

What kind of orthodontic treatments exist?

As orthodontics is the speciality of dentistry concerned with the treatment of misaligned jaws and teeth, most treatments are focused on this. One of the most innovative orthodontic treatment types is Invisible aligners (Also called Invisalign). These are aligners made out of a transparent plastic material, which fit perfectly on your teeth. Throughout the treatment, a series of these aligners are manufactured in a personalised manner in order to achieve the best results with the least discomfort. Invisible aligners are a great option for young professionals, teens or adults who would like to straighten their teeth, but are concerned about getting metal braces with brackets. While Invisalign is an excellent treatment option for cosmetic conditions or conditions ranging in severity from mild to moderate, it is important to note that Invisalign is not suitable for every patient or condition. Invisible aligners are often removable as well, therefore you do not have to worry about staining them with coffee, tea, red wine or other foods and beverages. More serious tooth misalignments have to be treated with traditional braces with brackets.

Luckily today not all braces with brackets have to be made out of metal. Invisible braces consist of tooth-coloured brackets made out of porcelain or plastic and a transparent plastic archwire. This makes these braces barely visible, and also capable of treating every condition that metal braces would.

Are orthodontic treatments painful?

What a person perceives as painful varies from person to person, however orthodontic treatments are generally not as painful as patients often imagine them. Some discomfort can certainly be felt, but your dentists will make sure that this discomfort is as minor as possible. If necessary, the use of a local anaesthetic efficiently alleviates pain. The discomfort associated with orthodontic treatments also largely depends on the condition and the required treatment.

The history of veneers


Our teeth are exposed to a variety of factors that can lead to their eventual erosion and damage. The ability to change the appearance of damaged, but not diseased teeth has been desired by dentists and patients alike for centuries. The invention of veneers made this possible. Veneers were invented by a Californian dentist called Charles Pincus in the late 1920s. Initially, these early forms of today’s veneers were only used temporarily to change the appearance of actors’ teeth before a film shoot or an acting performance. Later he developed acrylic veneers, which were stuck on teeth using denture adhesives, however still only very little adhesion was achieved, therefore these veneers were only a temporary solution. Later, the invention of etching made veneers a much more reliable and permanent option for the cosmetic improvement of damaged teeth. Hydrofluoric acid can be used to etch porcelain veneers to the enamel more permanently. Veneers nowadays last approximately 10-30 years, thanks to the technological advancements in the field of bonding agents and types of cement. If you would like to get veneers in Liverpool, book an appointment with us at the Liverpool Smile Studio.

When are veneers the most beneficial?

Veneers are small and thin layers of a certain material fixed upon a tooth or multiple teeth to improve their appearance. As veneers are indicated for the treatment of cosmetic issues, such as broken, chipped or discoloured teeth, it is important that the tooth the veneer will be added onto is in good health. Veneers are also useful for creating a more symmetrical smile for patients with irregularly sized teeth. Veneers are most commonly applied on the 8 frontal teeth of the two dental arches. It is important to note that veneers are highly different from crowns and dental implants, as veneers are only applied on the surface of the tooth, while crowns or implants may replace the whole tooth. Veneers can also be useful for treating cosmetic conditions such as overly small teeth, pointy or irregularly shaped teeth, gaps between teeth or serious discolouration that whitening cannot help. There are different types of veneers available. If you would like to get veneers in Liverpool, do not hesitate to book an appointment at our dentistry, Liverpool Smile Studio.

What kind of veneers exist?

The most common material used for making veneers is porcelain. Traditional veneers may be more invasive and require more preparatory dental work than so-called “non-prep” veneers. When traditional veneers are applied, usually the tooth structure is ground down to a certain level, which sometimes even involves tooth layers beneath the enamel. This procedure allows veneers to adhere to the tooth’s surface properly, however, it is an irreversible dental procedure that can involve some pain. However, there is no reason to worry – local anaesthetics do an excellent job alleviating dental pain. The more modern non-prep veneers require significantly less preparatory dental work and tooth grinding, and it mostly only affects the enamel. Typically, non-prep veneers do not necessitate the use of a local anaesthetic, as the procedure is not particularly painful. If you think you would benefit from veneers in Liverpool, do not hesitate to get in touch with us, the Liverpool Smile Studio.
