Orthodontics Essex

We know that people want different things from their Teeth Straightening treatment, and for different reasons. We feel that our first job is to listen, inform, explain, take feedback and uncover the method of orthodontics that is right for you.

We provide the widest range of orthodontic braces.

Low Cost Braces

Our traditional Dental Braces provide teeth straightening for a cheaper cost and can be used in all cases from mild to complex to drastically improve your appearance.

Invisalign Clear

Would you like to transform your smile, but don’t like the idea of wearing fixed braces? Invisalign lets you have the best of both worlds.

Children's Braces

Everyone should know that a level of Orthodontics is available for children under 18 as a free service on the NHS (we are not an NHS practice).

Teeth Straightening Products

A wide range of fixed and removable braces, some clear braces, some hidden, some that move the teeth quicker and some that are for the front teeth only.

Problems We Solve

Although relatively new to the UK, this is a widely used system, and over 700,000 people have completed the treatment. As a pioneering Orthodontist, Michael Fennell was one of the first to introduce the system over here.

With our new 3D teeth scanning system, we can now show you ‘straight’ away. It is a most amazing thing to show your teeth moving into their final position, like a ‘before and after’ movie.

Winning Smiles Orthodontics
Winning Smiles Express Orthodontics

Using great new treatments like Inman Aligners, 6-month smiles and Secret Smile (brackets on the inside of teeth) our express makeovers can transform your smile in as little as 10 weeks.

Because the treatment times are shorter which demands less orthodontist time, it costs far less than traditional metal braces!

Front Teeth Braces

Express treatments work by straightening only your front 4 or 6 teeth, and they straighten your natural teeth with less hassle and expense in a shorter period of time than any other orthodontic treatment.

Inman Aligners are removable, fast and represent a totally new concept in cosmetic dentistry.

 

Other express orthodontic treatments include:

Invisible Braces

  • virtually invisible aligners like Simpli5

White Braces

  • 6 Month Smiles’ – white brackets on the front 6 teeth with a wire running through them

Hidden Braces

  • Secret Smiles‘ – orthodontic lingual braces, brackets attached to the back of your front teeth

Pros - Discreet, inexpensive and fast

Cons – will not change the shape and appearance of the chin or lips. Purely cosmetic. Only straightens the front 4 or 6 teeth.

Winning Smiles Conventional Orthodontics

Conventional bracket and wire braces are used for moderate to complex tooth straightening cases.

Damon Braces

Up until recently treatment often took a minimum of 2 years or more. Using the new Damon System, treatment times, and the number of visits required during treatment, are much reduced.

Using the Damon System often means that your teeth can be straightened without the need for extractions. The treatment is gentle, safe and fast and leads to a wonderful, natural smile.  To find out more about how Damon Orthodontics can benefit you please contact us using the form on the left of this page.

Fixed Metal Braces

In some cases, traditional bracket and wire metal braces will still be the best way forward. The pros and cons of the conventional approach are listed below.

  • Wires and brackets – can be white brackets to improve aesthetics during treatment
  • Upper, lower or both jaws
  • Monthly payments available, no finance required (terms and conditions apply to payment plans)

Pros – can be used for very complex cases or for speedy treatment of mild cases. These braces give the finest control of tooth movement and thus are viewed by many orthodontists as the best clinical method.

Cons – other people will know you are having it done (although white brackets help). Fixed brackets are less comfortable on lips and difficult to clean around

Winning Smiles Aesthetic Orthodontics

Suitable for moderately complex cases requiring the movement of many teeth. Also used for movement of just front teeth (see ‘Express’ above)

Invisalign Clear Braces

Cases take 12-24 months (less for cases involving only front teeth) using

  • Invisalign ‘virtually invisible’ aligners or a  similar system
  • Combination cases using wires on the inside of the teeth (invisible from the front) to start with followed by the ‘virtually invisible’ aligners
  • Combination cases using white brackets and wires for a short time with the Invisalign-type aligners the majority of the time
  • Teeth Whitening can be included at the same time

Can be used to treat upper, lower or both jaws

Payment plans available for all our braces starting from £99 per month for our traditional fixed braces, terms and conditions do apply

Pricing available on our Orthodontics Pricing Page

Pros – can be used to treat cases of moderate complexity, very discreet

Removable, for short periods for eating and cleaning

Cons – can take longer than conventional orthodontics or ‘express’,  complex cases may require the patient to wear brackets and wires for a short time either at the beginning or end of treatment

Free Consultation

Without seeing things for ourselves, we can’t tell people what their options are.

And so with that in mind, we are happy to offer free consultations, as this is a big decision for most people. We are careful to take budget, comfort and appearance into account when explaining all the available choices and there is never any pressure to proceed, and certainly not on the day.

We set out to be a friendly practice and try to provide everybody with what’s right for them, at an affordable cost. We hope our dentist reviews give that impression.

What they say about us

A smile to be proud of

I would just like to thank Andrew, Ian and all of the staff at Winning Smiles.

I have just completed my treatment, implants, crownsorthodontics and whitening and am over the moon with the results. I found all of the staff at Winning Smiles very friendly and extremely professional. They listened to the problems I was having with my teeth, suggested solutions and explained every stage of the procedures.

I would highly recommend them as I now have a ‘Winning Smile’ to be proud of.

To cap it off

I now love dentists!

One of my friends who used to be a dentist was honest enough to tell me how awful the old cap on my front tooth looked so I went to see the Winning Smiles team and came out with a brand new smile.

I am so pleased. What took me so long.

Dental Veneer Replacement

To say I was terrified of dentists was an understatement! I had 6 very old chipped, stained veneers which I was totally ashamed of.

At my consultation, Andrew and Julie assured me it really would be painless (I didn’t entirely believe this at the time)…I returned to have all my old veneers replaced with immediate veneers. I was given a sedative to help me relax (wonderful stuff!) and didn’t even realise when I had the anesthetic by way of the dental wand.

I can truthfully say the entire process from removing the old veneers to replacing with new ones was absolutely pain free. It wasn’t even remotely uncomfortable. I was quite happy chilling under a blanket listening to my iPod and before I knew it, I had lovely teeth again.

I feel 40+ years of having a phobia has been cured instantly so I cannot thank Andrew and his lovely ladies enough.

Care and Attention

I can honestly say that I have never been treated with such care and attention at a dentist before. Ian fitted instant veneers for me and the amount of confidence it has given me and the way they look is amazing.

I sing for a choir and also a rock n roll band and will never feel self conscious about my teeth again.

Ian was very kind, patient and took great pride in his work. I would not hesitate to recommend the winning smiles team to anyone, so if you’re thinking about it please do make an appointment. You won’t be disappointed.

Instant Veneers Rock and Roll

I can honestly say that I have never been treated with such care and attention at a dentist before. Ian fitted instant veneers for me and the amount of confidence it has given me and the way they look is amazing.

I sing for a choir and also a rock n roll band and will never feel self conscious about my teeth again. Ian was very kind, patient and took great pride in his work. I would not hesitate to recommend the winning smiles team to anyone.

so if your thinking about it please do make an appointment. You won’t be disappointed.

A caring attitude and attention to detail

A big big thank you to Andrew and his team at winning smiles. The whole staff are so friendly and helpful. My treatment took about six months during which I was so impressed with Andrew’s attention to detail and how meticulous he is. And above all his caring attitude.

He had a vision from the start about my treatment that we had to alter to suit my budget. I also had fillings done by Ian, a superb dentist who is very friendly, patient and accurate.

I take my hat off to all of you at winning smiles for the highest degree of professionalism that you showed during my treatment. I am so happy with my smile now
