Dear Adam,

Now my treatment with Invisalign is completed, I just wanted to say a BIG thank you.

I came to see you in September 2017 with teeth, both top and bottom, badly out of alignment.

You recommended Invisalign, and whilst I had reservations and nerves, you took the time and had the patience to explain how the system worked and all that was required of me to ensure I would end up with 'perfect' teeth. I was impressed that you were actually able to show me by 3D on a screen, not only the various stages of the treatment, but also the finished look of my teeth before you had actually started. Amazing!

My particular treatment lasted 47 weeks and I can honestly say I didn't have a minute of pain throughout. Of course, it felt strange at first, and whilst I thought it might be a pain taking the braces out before meals, in reality, you just get used to it. It becomes part of the routine.

My friends were unaware of the treatment I was having, the braces were clear and so went unnoticed. They only started noticing once they could see I was smiling with my teeth showing, something I hadn't done for 50+ years. They were impressed.

I would have no problem with you showing my before/after pictures to prospective clients. I am proud of them! THE CONFIDENCE IT HAS GIVEN ME IS BEYOND MEASURE. I now feel I really do have perfect teeth!

Finally, Adam, as you are aware, I am so impressed with you personally and professionally I have changed dentists to be with you and am grateful to you knowing my teeth are in good hands.

Once again, a BIG thank you. Best Wishes.

Dear Mr.Carstairs I just wanted to say how pleased I have been with your impressive overview and treatment of my teeth.

Your attention to detail and comfort for me as a new patient has been incredible and very much appreciated.

The two bridges and one denture that you recommended for my mouth are an excellent fit,and the end result has made me a very happy man.

I have recommended you to my friends without hesitation for all dental treatment.

May I also in passing comment on the clarity and simplicity of your website, it mirrors your professional service.

Thank you once again Yours very sincerely,

I’m absolutely delighted with the fantastic results Dr Carstairs has achieved for me using Invisalign. After years of complaining about my teeth, they have been corrected in just a few months! The whole process was completely painless and not a single person realised that I was wearing a retainer. Dr Carstairs is incredibly knowledgeable and I can’t recommend him highly enough. Thank you!

After being unhappy with my teeth despite 4 teeth removed and fixed braces as a teenager which left them sticky out front ways quite badly, I decided to visit Adam at the Royal mews Practise, originally for convenience as it was very close to my house. From the consultation, Adam and his team were friendly, knowledgeable and and I knew from the beginning I could entrust my smile with them.

Throughout the last eight months the treatment has been very well explained at every stage and therefore very easy to undertake. Adam is a very caring dentist who is particularly good for nervous patients and I couldn't be happier with the final results. Could not recommend highly enough.

Adam Carstairs £ Southend on Sea 01702 352450 Adam Carstairs

Had Invisalign treatment carried out by Adam.

Adam put me at ease from the first consultation. He always took the time to explain everything and answer any questions I had.

Have never been a big fan of going to the dentist!....But I never felt any trepidation about attending my appointments at Royal Mews.

Adam could not have looked after me better. Am so happy with the results my teeth are straight and white - wish I'd had it done years ago.

I would definitely recommend Invisalign treatment by Adam.

Adam Carstairs £ Southend on Sea 01702 352450 Adam Carstairs

For years I have wanted to have my teeth straightened and have always felt uncomfortable with my smile.

Then I was recommended by a friend and patient to Adam Carstairs at Royal Mews Dental Practice in Southend on Sea and I am so pleased with the results of my invisalign treatment.

From day one Adam, his dental nurse Michelle and staff have been simply wonderful. The technology is amazing and the care received made me realise how important it is also to Adam to ensure the end result is just perfect.

I was so excited at the start to realise at last I was soon going to have a confident smile which now I can't stop using.

Thank you so much and best wishes,

Adam Carstairs £ Southend on Sea 01702 352450 Adam Carstairs

Before having treatment I was neither upset or happy with my teeth.

They were always a little bit slanted but never looked too bad.

At the back of my mind though I always wanted my teeth straightened and corrected.

After talking to my dentist I decided to go for it and get them straightened once and for all.

Now having had the braces taken off I am pleased to show off my new smile and my straightened teeth!

It wasn't an easy journey - the braces can hurt your gums at first but they do adjust and you get used to it.

The braces are clever technology and don't change your appearance too much - in fact a relative of mine didn't even know I had braces fitted at all - during and even after I'd finished the treatment!

It was all about small forces over time to move and straighten the teeth - nothing too painful at any one moment.

The staff were very professional and have given me great service throughout the treatment.

Looking back I am happy that I had braces and I am very pleased with the results.

Adam Carstairs £ Southend on Sea 01702 352450 Adam Carstairs

I have just completed six months of Invisalign with Adam and could not be happier with the results. I have always had a protruding front tooth and crooked lower teeth which were becoming more pronounced over the years. For the first time in 54 years I am actually now being complimented on my straight teeth!

The process itself was relatively straightforward and pain free with weekly aligners which just become a way of life. Any discomfort could usually be alleviated with dental wax. I did feel a little self conscious with numerous attachments but no one seemed to notice unless I pointed them out.

I have been a patient of Adam's for over 15 years and have complete confidence in him and the rest of the team for any dental procedure. I can highly recommend Royal Mews Dental Practice.

Adam Carstairs £ Southend on Sea 01702 352450 Adam Carstairs

Following completion of my recent Invisalign treatment plan, I am so pleased with the results. Prior to treatment I wasn't overly confident in my smile and self conscious about the positioning of some of my teeth. From my initial consult with Adam through to completion, he explained everything clearly and concisely and no question was ever too much trouble. Since completing my treatment my teeth are now perfectly straight and I can smile with confidence. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Adam to anyone considering similar cosmetic dentistry, the results are brilliant and the friendly and professional service received from Adam and the staff at Royal Mews Dental surgery has exceeded expectations.

Adam Carstairs £ Southend on Sea 01702 352450 Adam Carstairs

I have been visiting Adam Carstairs for a number of years, and previous to finding Adam I had had horrific experiences in the dentist chair! Needless to say when I arrived in Adams surgery my teeth were not good and I was not the easiest of patients!. He has worked miracles with my teeth and my fear of dentists he is calm, knowledgeable and explains everything that will be done and I now go voluntarily before I need work done! Thanks Adam! (and his team are lovely also!)

I have recently just finished a programme to have a number of veneers introduced and am writing to thank Adam Carstairs of the Royal Mews dental practice to say how pleased I am with the end result.

The final (natural) look achieved has far exceeded my expectations and is undoubtedly the result of a thorough process coupled with the excellent quality veneers that Adam has selected to work with through his own research.

Having elected to have eight teeth replaced it was reassuring to have the detailed preparatory steps explained in a relaxed and unhurried fashion. Given the process was made more complex due to the way my top and bottom sets of teeth meet, the time taken in the preparatory steps (which you don't see in the makeover programmes!) gave me reassurance and confidence at every stage that I had made the right decision.

Reflecting on the two main dental visits required to deliver the final result (first session to prepare my own teeth and fit temporary veneers, the second to fit the veneers), again I would like to commend the professionalism of Adam and his dental nurse Michelle where I feel I was I afforded the highest quality of care. I can't stress enough how important their care was in allowing me to reflect positively on the overall process – not just the final result.

If you're considering veneers, I would have no hesitation in recommending Adam.

I had realised that over time my lower teeth were becoming more displaced and that this situation would only worsen. Although everyone was used to the way I sounded and how my teeth looked, I felt that if I didn't do something, I may reach a point where treatment was not an option.

I am delighted with the results. Initially, my objective was to improve the look of my lower teeth, which has been fully satisfied. In addition, I have subsequently found that frequent episodes with my bite, which resulted in pain to my inner lips and cheeks, have been completed resolved. This has had a greater effect on my well-being than the improvement in my looks and was completely unexpected.

My experience was not at all pleasant. If anyone is considering this procedure, they should be aware that the duration of the treatment may be longer than initially expected, and that discomfort may be acute throughout the entire process (mine was around 10 months).

I was of course very self-conscious of my looks during the treatment. However, during that time, and subsequently I've noticed that far more people have these devices fitted than anyone realises. It's only if you look specifically, that you notice people with these types of fittings on their teeth.

As usual, my experience has been as pleasant as possible. As a client of this practice for over 50 years, I am never reluctant to come for treatment. Staff are always pleasant and welcoming.

I'm sure that my particular circumstances (extreme lingual tori) made the treatment more difficult, and therefore uncomfortable. However to anyone who may be considering this procedure please consider first, the long-term benefits, before any short-term discomfort or embarrassment.
