Clear Positioner

Braces are in high demand. Nearly 1 million people in the UK started orthodontic treatment last year and more adults than ever before want treatment!

At Shine Dental, we offer a number of cosmetic brace systems. Clear Positioners are a cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces and are less conspicuous. Manufactured from clear medical grade plastic, they are worn in a sequence to gently guide the teeth into the desired position.

When the positioner is first placed over the teeth, it is not designed to fit perfectly, the teeth will move to where the positioner requires. The small movements incorporated into each positioner will gradually align the teeth using gentle pressure. Each positioner is worn for twenty hours a day over a two week period. Once this period is complete, the patient moves on to the next positioner in the sequence.

Less Conspicuous


Fastbraces® were developed to straighten teeth differently- With safety in mind,we offer a FAST,SAFE and AFFORDABLE solution.

Fastbraces® are all 100% non extraction therapy based. Suitable for children too, patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases just a few short months! Based in Ashton Manchester

Fastbraces® Technology allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torquing them from the very first appointment. Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months. It has been developed and tested over the past 20 years and is now becoming available in countries around the world.

Fastbraces® Technology is fast, safe, easy and affordable treatment. With the patented triangular design of the braces, cutting edge techniques and a special heat-activated wire, this new technology is revolutionizing the field of orthodontics.

Unique Shape

The Fastbraces® Technology brackets have an elevated slot and a unique elbow design. The shape of the bracket is critical because it literally changes the force-flexibility equation. The square shape of conventional brackets defines the distance between the brackets and that distance determines the flexibility of the wire.

The unique triangular shape of the Fastbraces® patented bracket, with its elevated slot, typically increases the distance between the individual brackets, which increases the flexibility of the wire. Additionally, the “elbows” of the bracket help deliver torquing and tipping forces to the root from the beginning of treatment.

These fundamental differences allow treatment to be completed in about a year, or as little as 3 months in select cases. For the consumer looking for an aesthetic cosmetic solution, Fastbraces®Clear™ ceramic brackets are also available and offer the same technology advantages of moving teeth as the Fastbraces® metal brackets

What is ClearSmile Brace?

ClearSmile Brace uses traditional techniques with new technology to reduce orthodontic treatment times and improve the appearance of the braces. The ClearSmile Brace wires are coated white and uses a material with shape-memory. This shape-memory means the wire will return to its original shape regardless of how it’s bent. This creates the gentle forces used to move your teeth to the desired position.

Why does ClearSmile Brace use gentle forces?

Using lower forces increases the speed and comfort of treatment. Low forces also reduce the risks of orthodontic treatment.

Is ClearSmile Brace safe?

ClearSmile Brace is a safe orthodontic treatment. As with all treatments, there are risks.These will be explained before the commencement of your ClearSmile treatment.

How discreet is ClearSmile Brace?

ClearSmile Brace uses clear brackets, as opposed to metal brackets. The wire used in a ClearSmile Brace is also coasted with a tooth coloured material. As a result, ClearSmile Brace is less visible than traditional fixed braces.

Should I wear a retainer?

Yes. You must wear a retainer for life if you wish to maintain the results of any orthodontic treatment.

What can be treated with ClearSmile Brace?

ClearSmile Brace is mainly used to straighten the front 10 teeth for aesthetic reasons. You will need to be seen for an orthodintic assessment to determine your suitability for ClearSmile brace.
