Smile of the Month November


Smile of month Nov 17


This is Leigh who has had fixed brace treatment here at Cleveland Orthodontics. After her braces were removed, she was kind enough to write us a testimonial :

I couldn’t imagine that my teeth could look and feel as amazing as they do now! So so pleased with the results

About Leila’s brace treatment

Leila visited our practice in 2015 and told us that she wanted straight teeth. She did have quite crooked teeth and  qualified for NHS brace treatment. Her upper right canine tooth was particularly prominent.

All new patients to Cleveland Orthodontics are assessed by a specialist orthodontist. When we saw Leila, we decided that she needed  fixed metal braces.

You can read more about how fixed braces work.

The treatment lasted 18 months from start to finish.


After braces are removed, it will be very important for Leila to wear her removable retainers on a long term basis so that the gaps do not re-appear. There is also an option of having a fixed retainers glued behind the teeth just to make sure!

You can read more about retainers and why we use them.
