FIRST Ortho makes East London smile

Orthodontist East LondonFIRST Ortho’s Buckhurst Hill practice offers a comprehensive range of orthodontic treatments to help East London dental patients with different needs. 

If your teeth are misaligned – sometimes referred to as maloccluded – they can develop abnormal wear patterns and this abnormal or uneven wear can weaken your teeth as the years go by and eventually cause cracks and even breakages.

It’s also trickier to keep misaligned teeth clean, so you might face an increased risk of cavities, decay and tooth loss.

Everything starts with a good clean!

Orthodontist East LondonFIRST Ortho knows that a lasting beautiful smile needs good dental hygiene so we’re always on hand to give you advice on cleaning your teeth effectively.

Our range of orthodontic services

If you’re looking for orthodontic braces in East London, then come to us for:

  • Orthodontist East LondonCeramic braces, ideal for older teens and adult patients who want a more discreet way to align their teeth correctly
  • Functional braces, which we use to correct a bite problem called overjet and which only a handful of UK orthodontists offer
  • Incognito lingual braces, which sit behind the teeth and so are even more discreet than ceramic braces
  • Invisalign braces, a popular and much less invasive choice for children and adults with mild misalignment in their teeth
  • Bonded and removable retainers to correct and maintain the arch shape of a set of teeth; FIRST Ortho makes retainers which can cover up to eight teeth rather than the usual four to six
  • Steel and Damon braces – popular with younger children and useful because they offer lots of flexibility and room for adjustment

I highly recommend Dr Patel and First Ortho!
Fatima Awow

For anyone that is considering orthodontics, regardless of age, I highly recommend Dr Patel and First Ortho! I was actually a patient here almost 10 years ago and I decided to revisit due to their high quality of care.

I feel so lucky to have Mr Patel.
Claire Franklin

I personally don’t think you really wont find another orthodontist as exceptional as Mr Patel. I would recommend him and his team to anyone and will use him for both my children when they need treatment.

Dr Patel & his team couldn’t do more for me!
Claudia Leachman

The change in my teeth already is amazing (especially my lower arch) and I’d recommend this practise to anyone looking for a highly talented orthodontist.

I personally recommend him

Dr Patel has been my orthodontist for years and I personally recommend him as he is the best at what he does. How he cares for your teeth and the excellence in the whole orthodontist surgery itself.

My son can see my beaming smile instead of me covering my face, hiding what used to be my biggest insecurity. So thankful for all of Dr Patels care & service.

Our range of orthodontic services

This is what FIRST Ortho can offer patients coming from East London:

Our range of cosmetic dental treatments

Cosmetic orthodontic treatments are primarily focused on improving the appearance of a patient’s teeth and overall smile rather than addressing more complex dental issues that require medical intervention for oral health reasons. Here are some of the most common cosmetic orthodontic treatments we undertake at FIRST Ortho.

Cosmetic bonding

Steel braces

FIRST Ortho’s Dr Mahesh Patel is a cosmetic bonding expert with many years of experience.

Cosmetic bonding is the ideal treatment for perfecting your smile as it fills in gaps and restores the appearance of chipped or discoloured teeth.

Teeth whitening

A popular choice for our East London orthodontic patients is teeth whitening.

Some people have naturally slightly darker teeth and others find that strongly-coloured drinks like red wine or coffee lead to staining over the years. 

As long as your teeth aren’t discoloured by dental decay, FIRST Ortho can gently lift the shade of your teeth, bringing you a lighter, brighter smile and increased confidence.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are attached to the back surfaces of the teeth, making them invisible from the front and a popular choice for cosmetic orthodontics.

Ceramic Braces

Orthodontist East LondonThese braces work like traditional metal braces but are designed with tooth-colored or clear brackets to blend in with your teeth for a less conspicuous appearance.

The durable ceramic material is resistant to staining, ensuring they maintain their aesthetic appeal throughout the treatment duration.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners like Invisalign offer a discrete way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, transparent trays that progressively adjust the position of your teeth.

Tooth-Colored Wires and Bands for Braces

Braces can be made more aesthetically pleasing with the use of tooth-colored wires and bands, which are much less noticeable than traditional metal options.


Orthodontist East LondonRetainer: not only do they stabilise teeth following orthodontic treatment, but retainers can also be custom-made as clear or with tooth-colored wires, thus providing an unobtrusive appearance that aligns with your natural smile while they discreetly preserve the desired tooth positioning.
