Secret Smiles

Secret Smiles

You’ll be pleased to know that if you’re searching for lingual braces, 33 Dental Practice offer a wide range of invisible braces. One such type is known as Secret Smile. Unlike other forms of clear braces Secret Smile sits on the back of the teeth rather than the front. As a result it’s a system that’s so discreet nobody will even know that you’re wearing it.

How Do Secret Smiles Work?

For many local residents, when it comes to wearing lingual or clear braces, most prefer a product that’s quick acting and one that can give them back their smile in no time at all. For this reason, Secret Smile fits the criteria perfectly.

Lightweight titanium brackets are bonded onto the back of the teeth and fine wire is then threaded through. The self-litigating system allows the wire to move freely throughout the duration of the treatment without the need for any tightening. By applying continual and gentle pressure the teeth are shifted back into position easily and safely.

As with many types of lingual braces, Secret Smile’s focus is primarily on the aesthetic appearance of a person’s smile rather than complete orthodontic treatments such as root orientation and bite. Results therefore tend to be noticeable in as little as 6 weeks with most people seeing straighter teeth within 16 weeks.

Are Secret Smiles Braces Invisible?

Yes. The teeth will be securely and comfortably fitted on the back of your teeth, which makes them completely invisible.

Is There Any Food That You Should Avoid Eating?

We recommend that during your treatment you try and stick to a healthy diet, that avoids any sugary foods/drinks and any hard crunchy foods, as they can damage your brace.

Why Are Secret Smile Treatments Quicker?

This brace just focuses on improving your visible smile rather than correcting your bite as well. This significantly reduces the overall treatment time.

Will Your Teeth Remain Straight After Treatment?

Like having any other brace, it is of utmost importance to wear retainers after having braces. This is so you don’t suffer a relapse which undoes all the good work of the brace. We have invisible retainers as well, which are bonded on the backs of your teeth.

Who Needs Secret Smile Braces?

Due to the invisible appearance of Secret Smile braces, this technique has become popular with celebrities looking for special orthodontic treatment that does not interfere with work or socialising.

We have treated many cases where patients main concerns were:

  • Straightening crooked teeth
  • Alignment of the gum line
  • Closing spaces between teeth
  • Alignment of flared teeth
  • Time of treatment
  • Complexity of treatment required

Is Secret Smile suitable for you? Why not book a consultation, where one of our specially trained dentists will be able to listen to your concerns about your teeth and assess you for suitability.

COVID-19 update

Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.

Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.

From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.

Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.

We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.

This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
