Your first visit

If you’re ready to take the plunge and embark on your journey to your dream smile, here’s what you can expect to happen at your first visit to Beam Orthodontics.

Your first visit

Free consultation

Your first visit to Beam Orthodontics is free. There is no obligation to start with treatment but this appointment gives you the opportunity to speak with our treatment coordinator, ask any questions you may have about orthodontic treatment and find out what our fees and finance plans are.

Extensive consultation

At this extensive examination with our Specialist Orthodontist, we will also:

  • ask you about your medical and dental history
  • assess your teeth and jaws to determine what treatment you could benefit from, using the iTero intra-oral scanner
  • take any x-rays or photographs we need to plan for your treatment
  • prepare a bespoke treatment plan for you with our treatment recommendations
  • provide you with information on our flexible finance options

Benefits of orthodontic treatment

At Beam Orthodontics, we transform possibilities into beautifully tailored smiles. We use the very latest techniques and our comprehensive range of fixed braces, tooth-coloured appliances, removable invisible aligners and lingual braces will correct imperfections large and small.

That’s the technical part, so what about the benefits? Imagine never feeling conscious of your smile. Think how you would feel knowing that your smile captivated people in the same way as someone like our Olympian Tom Daley or TV Presenter Holly Willoughby.

Our patients often say the results of orthodontic treatment are truly life-changing. After spending years hiding their smile behind their hand or shying away from having their photo taken, their confidence increases tremendously and they can’t stop smiling.
