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

Clearsmile Brace

A large amount of people are unhappy with the look of their front teeth, this can affect confidence when smiling, laughing and even talking. With this in mind, people are put off wearing braces because they feel uncomfortable with the aesthetic stigma attached to braces, especially having to wear metal braces for a whole year or two!

We introduce the ‘Clearsmile Brace’- a rapid and aesthetic orthodontic system that is focused simply on the front 10 teeth! The length of time to complete treatment and the discreet nature of Clearsmile Braces make it a highly attractive and tempting option that can fit in with anyone’s lifestyle!

FAQs

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.
