affordable and convenient braces
I have been very fortunate to meet IGDP staff in my search for affordable and convenient braces. I had fastbraces and teeth whitening done by dr Stephan van Vuuren, all on time and on budget. I highly recommend Dr Stephan to anyone looking for a perfect smile. Thank you -:)
Stephan is brilliant
Stephan is brilliant, I was considering other clear plastic braces with a treatment time of 18 months when a friend told me to go to IGDP. Went for a consultation and Stephan promised me it’d be a max of 5 months to sort my top teeth-did it with time to spare-have just had lower turbo braces removed and am very very happy-not painful at all, I can’t believe it’s been so quick-I wish I’d had it done years ago. Thank you Stephan!
Recommend this practice to anyone who wants a great smile.
Very professional and friendly service, I was happy with the information I needed on my ongoing treatment. I will recommend this practice to anyone who wants a great smile.
I was so relaxed I actually fell asleep
Excellent service by Rory, I was so relaxed I actually fell asleep whilst he completed my Root Canal Treatment!
I would and will recommend IGDP to anyone who I know needs dental treatment & help
When I entered the surgery I was in a tremendous amount of pain … I was treated by Pinar and a lovely smile who reassured me that it would all be ok
Rory is without doubt the best dentist I have ever seen ..he immediately reassured me that he would stop the pain and do what had to be done ! He was efficient and with a really nice manner made me feel at ease
I would and will recommend IGDP to anyone who I know needs dental treatment …it’s a first class service
Made me feel welcome and at ease…: EF (London)
I would like to thank Stephan and his team who made me feel welcome and at ease right from the start of my treatment. I am very happy with the results fastbraces has given me and loved how affordable it was. I have already recommended a colleague who is having the treatment and will continue to tell people about fast braces.
What would you highlight about us? The friendliness of all the people that worked there and what you have to offer
The quality of my teeth improved…: DF (London)
Very happy with the treatment. I had always been insecure with my teeth but never had the courage to fix them until 2 years ago when I decided to consult IGDP for the Invasilign treatment. I followed Dr.Vuuren’s instruction very carefully and the quality of my teeth improved significantly within a year. I would recommend the treatment to anyone considering it provided they actually follow the guidelines set by Dr.Vuuren, otherwise it would be a waste of money.
A big thank you, I love my teeth…: LT (London)
Having Fastbraces was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I really didn’t believe it could work so quickly, it took just 11 months to achieve straight beautiful teeth. I had been told by other orthodontists that it would take between 18 months to 2 years and was going to cost nearly double the price! I received my treatment from Dr Stephan Jansen van Vuuren a professional, attentive orthodontist who was extremely patient and exceeded my expectations with regards to care and treatment.
All the staff at Islington Green Dental Practice were absolutely delightful, they were flexible with appointments, helpful, nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile. My overall experience was fantastic and would highly recommend Fastbraces at the IGDP to anyone who wants perfect teeth quickly, I can’t stop smiling.
Stephan proved me wrong!: SM (London)
I don’t normally write testimonials as unfortunately service/experiences are not usually worth writing about, but I do not hesitate to write a testimonial for Stephan van Vuuren and the Practice.
I have had Stephan as a Dentist for many years and, as I found him to always give an honest answer, I asked him would I be a suitable candidate for the Invisalign treatment as I had an overbite and had not been happy with my smile for a long time.
Stephan patiently gave me all the details and took time to show me ‘before and after’ photos of past cases so I could see the fantastic results achieved, and I certainly felt no pressure in saying yes to the treatment especially after I was also shown, via computer imagery, how my end result would look – I was a little doubtful that this could be achieved, but after about 15 months of treatment – Stephan proved me wrong!
I sailed through the treatment – mostly due to Stephan making the whole process so easy – I wish Invisalign had been around years ago – it’s so nice to look in the mirror and see yourself with a lovely smile!
You don’t have to go to Harley Street: BM (London)
I must say how happy I am with the treatment when my implants were finished, over the 5 months of the dental work being completed everything went to plan. The staff phone you for a couple of days of the early treatment to check your o.k., this is only a fairly small surgery at Islington Green but could soon have a big reputation. Just goes to show you dont have to go to Harley Street to get top professional work done.
A credit to your profession: PK (Surrey)
I would just like to say how absolutely delighted I am with the results of my Invisalign course.
Dr Van Vuuren listened to my worries about my slightly wonky bottom front teeth and totally dispelled them during the course of treatment.
I am SO delighted with the result (and have had many un-prompted good comments) that I have recommended him and the Invisalign treatment to a number of my friends who are now also delighted with their results!
Well done IGDP and Dr Van Vuuren – you are a credit to your profession!
Easy and affordable: RL (London)
I had suffered from slightly crooked teeth for years and just thought that was just the way things were… In one of my routine appointments Stephan suggested that Invisalign might help correct my teeth alignment. Initially, I was (of course) very sceptical as I believed braces were for school children who liked to show off a mouth of metal and not forty-something men… Stephan was kind and supportive and assured me that nobody would even know I was ‘being done’ as the aligners were almost invisible and the change would be gradual. He was of course right, nobody knew I was being treated as the aligners were invisible and really comfortable. Every four weeks I got a new aligner and the teeth moved just a small amount each time. The end results are amazing, I’m gobsmacked (so to speak) and I now have the teeth I had dreamed of and am happier than ever. I am three years post Invisalign treatment now and have never looked back. My teeth were not only aligned but levelled too. I feel completely confident to smile now in a way I hadn’t even realised before.
Beyond my original expectations: GJ (London)
I’ve always look after my teeth reasonably well but over the years they have slowly unaligned. After using the Invisaline treatment over the past year, my teeth are now fully aligned – better than they have ever been. It doesn’t take very long to get used to wearing the plastic braces and after a short while I didn’t even notice wearing them at all.
My teeth are now perfectly straight; you can see it in the before and after photos but more importantly my friends tell me spontaneously. And I really appreciate the permanence of this treatment so this is the last time my teeth will ever need to be straightened.
My business requires me to travel around London and in my case, my treatment has required a regular 15 minute check-up every 6 weeks; It makes a big difference that Dr van Vuuren always starts on time and keeps it brief. He’s also been great at giving me slots that fit around my business priorities.
Above all, I have always cared for my teeth over the years but what I really like about Dr van Vuuren, is he really cares for my teeth even more than I do! – Spotting ways to go beyond my original expectation and insisting on more than one cycle of treatment to get the very best result.
Expectations were bettered: PG (London)
While at first, I was a little sceptical of the results I could expect from the treatment, Stephan invested a significant amount of time to ensure my concerns were addressed and to set my expectations. Having recently finished the treatment I can honestly say that all expectations were bettered and for the first time in my adult life I have a set of teeth to be very proud of.
A good investment: BG (London)
I had 12 months of treatment with Invisalign to help lower a canine tooth which was high in my gum. Having reached the age of 30, I had always been aware of it and did not like the appearance, but did not realise there was an option for treatment which didn’t involve metal braces. Stephan explained the option of clear braces with a sequence of trays to wear, which would slowly move the tooth down into position. In addition, it lined up the rest of my teeth and really made a difference. The best thing was that most people had no idea I was having treatment! The trays were not difficult to put in or take out, and I quickly adapted to wearing them.
Its been 2 years since I wore the braces, and I now wear a nightime retainer on alternate nights to keep the teeth aligned, which is no problem. The teeth have not moved back at all. I am really grateful to Stephan for his help, and would wholeheartedly recommend Invisalign to others. It really is a good investment and you will have no regrets about having had the treatment.
Impressed by his follow-up care: KB (London)
I had my teeth straightened by Stephan using Invisalign and am really pleased with the result. The treatment took about a year and throughout that period Stephan was consistently helpful and informative. Before the treatment began I felt slightly sceptical that it would proceed as smoothly as Stephan assured me it would, but he was right. No problems at all. I have also been very impressed by his follow-up care.
Better than I could have hoped for: MW (London)
I have been a dental patient with IGDP for many years, oddly quite enjoying the comfortable surroundings and relaxed but professional attitude of Stephan and his team.
When Stephan suggested he could straighten my crooked smile & use the almost invisible invisaline system I was amazed as I felt my case a particular challenge.
Stephan showed me some before and after shots of his previous patients and after his clear and professional explanation I felt confident that he could really improve things.
I did not however realise how good the transformation would be.
I laugh hysterically when I see my teeth as they used to be, l can’t believe I kept kidding myself all was fine.
For me the results are amazing, better than I could have hoped for and my smile does get noticed and yes it does make you more confident.
Extremely impressed by his professionalism: SB (London)
It sounded a bit daunting at first, but the care and charm with which I was handled by Stefan at IGDP made the experience easy to handle. From the initial recommendation of treatment, through to the preparation of the aligners and on to the final polish, I have been extremely impressed by his professionalism.
Encouraging, professional and confidence inspiring: JF (London)
I recently completed Invisalign at Islington Green Dental Practice. I have always looked after my teeth but was unhappy that they were rather ‘snaggly’ so talked to my dentist, Stephan, about what could be done. He recommended Invisalign, an individually tailored computer generated process whereby the patient wears almost invisible plastic trays over their teeth which are changed every 2 weeks and which gradually bring the teeth into line. In my case this process took almost a year, during which time I was closely monitored by Stephan. I am delighted with the result. For the first time my teeth look really good though completely natural and do, I am sure, enhance my overall appearance. Throughout the treatment Stephan was encouraging, professional and confidence inspiring.
Wonderful job done: PB (London)
To the team at Islington Green Dental Practice. It is now just over a year since the work on my four implants was completed and this is to say thank you Alistair and your team for a wonderful job done. I had them so I could eat better and not to look better.
A friendly afternoon: PS (London)
Stephan, Alistair & the nurse (whose name I don’t know). Thank you very much for turning a dreaded event into – not exactly a fun afternoon out – but a friendly afternoon! And I’m very happy with the result. And thanks to the receptionist who made my son feel welcome & provided coffee.
At no time did I experience any pain or discomfort: PS (London)
I was very pleased with my implant and indeed I thought the whole process went very well. You explained the whole process very clearly including most importantly what I should expect on the day of the actual fitting of the implant. You explained it would feel unusual which indeed it did but at no time did I experience any pain or discomfort. In just 2 or 3 days after the operation, everything was back to normal. And I am happy to report I have had no problems whatsoever with the implant. It was a very good decision to go ahead to have the implant done and also to have chosen you to do it.
